The Dolphin originated in 1930 as the "Sinbad," a pure flying boat without wheels. The Sinbad was intended as a luxurious flying yacht. The Great Depression had curtailed demand for such extravagance, but Douglas managed to interest the United States Coast Guard who not only bought the Sinbad, but 12 Dolphins. Undaunted by the lack of demand, Douglas improved the Sinbad in 1931 so that it was amphibious, and could land on water or land. The improved aircraft was named "Dolphin".

There were a total of 58 aircraft over the life of its production run. The first two were purchased by Wilmington-Catalina Airlines to fly passengers between Los Angeles and Santa Catalina Island, becoming the first successful Douglas airliners. Subsequent examples were ordered by the United States Navy and US Coast Guard for use as transports and search and rescue craft. The U.S. Army Air Corps ordered several under the designations C-21, C-26, and C-29. Many were eventually ordered for their original purpose as luxury transports. Owners included William Boeing, the founder of the Boeing Company, and Philip K. Wrigley, the son of the founder of the William Wrigley Jr Company. William K. Vanderbilt bought two with custom interiors for use from the Vanderbilt yacht Alva as flying tenders.

Golden Age Simulations has re-created these magnificent aircraft for Microsoft’s Flight Simulator X. Our aircraft is intended to be representative of the line of Dolphins and not of any one model or owner. The goal was to provide a historically accurate representation of these Golden Age seaplanes as well as an enjoyable experience for the simulator pilot.

The package contains three distinct versions of the aircraft with a total of 8 unique and historically accurate liveries. There the commercial version most notably flown by the Wilmington-Catalina Airlines; the military version, the most produced by Douglas, and the personal luxury transport as flown by William K. Vanderbilt and Bill Boeing.

Also included is a custom scenery package that brings back to life the original Catalina Seaplane airport on Santa Catalina Island. In 1931, Philip Wrigley helped design the unique airport at Hamilton Cove, the second cove north of Avalon. This airport was designed to accommodate the Douglas Dolphin amphibian planes of the Wilmington-Catalina Air Line, Ltd., a Wrigley-operated firm. This airport was in continual use until 1941 when WW II brought an end to seaplane operations to Catalina Island. Our presentation is an accurate representation of that facility complete with vintage autos and night lighting.

A detailed Flight Instruction manual is included in the package along with a paint kit for those that wish to customize their own Dolphin.

FSDG - REUNION FSX P3D
William Allen
This scenery is of a remote island off the northeast coast of Madagascar. Being a relatively small geographic area the detail is quite good. Both day and night lighting are sharp and accurate (although the latter seems a bit overly "blue" to me). I have an i5/1070 powered system and frame rates have not been any problem (locked at 40). It's a great scenery to buzz around in a helicopter and it is close enough to Madagascar, the Seychelles and the newly finished Maritius scenery that there should be plenty to do island hopping in that part of the world. I purchased this scenery as part of my preparation to actually visit Reunion last summer. Upon actually flying into Reunion I was immediately impressed at how faithfully FSDG had captured the island's geography. I also have the Seychelles (also by FSDG) and much prefer Reunion because of its more varied elevation and topography. If you have any interest in exploring a small, volcanic island or are just looking for something a bit different, I highly recommend Reunion.
AEROSOFT - CRJ 700/900 X FSX P3D
Niccolò Steffanini
I bought this beautiful add-on directly at Aerosoft. I've been using it for some time on p3d v4 and honestly find it to be great! It's a different plane than others and in fact I had to study the manuals (done very well) and now I am having a lot of fun. I would recommend it to all the lovers of the regional jet.

NXGN SIMULATIONS - CITATION CJ4X FSX P3D
J.G. Stroo
Nice device with realistic, some sharp sound. Large PFD and MFD windows and extensive control options at an attractive price. It would have been helpful if the push-buttons, like many other jets, would be lit when they are active. I may be the only one, but it is annoying that the front wheel steering (twist joystick) falls away as soon as the Citation CJ4X has landed at an airport other than that of departure. This makes taxiing from the runway to the gate impossible. Control by commands from the keyboard does not work (with me) either. However, control will be possible again if the aircraft, still on the runway, is replaced by another aircraft, even if immediately afterwards it is returned to the original aircraft. We are waiting for an update that hopefully corrects these points. Hans.

KINGS SCENERIES - CANCUN MEXICO MEGA SCENERY P3D
Carlos Buenrostro
Wont give it half a star because store won´t allow it. Terrible terrible terrible perfonrmance. With my current rig I run a very new A320 addon that has some reputation for being extra hard on FPS, and still get 30-40 FPS on more complex and detailed sceneries like KSFO with dynamic lights enabled. With the default F22 on P3D v4.1 I got around 6-8.2 FPS when I loaded this one. Besides, you have to add it manually, not worth even 2 bucks. I´m asking for a refund... Don´t recommend it at all...
A1R DESIGN BUREAU - A1R YAK-55M FSX P3D
Ákos Bohus
Magnificent plane with detailed textures and accurate model. I give 5/5 stars for the working wing fuel gauges and they look great! You must be an ace on the RPM lever to fly this bird properly, though experience is the best teacher. It produces a little more hardware usage than the A1R Blanik does. Recommended as well!
