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.

GRAND ISLAND SIM - BANJUL GBYD P3D4

Its nice to see an airport in this region. Considering this is the first airport for P3D V4 they have done an outstanding job! The texture quality is great the performance is very smooth. Looking forward to seeing what more they have for the future.
MP DESIGN STUDIO - AEROSPATIALE GAZELLE SA342 FSX P3D
delphine Echassoux
Awesome bird! The cockpit’s vibrations in flight, terrific sounds and maneuverability at medium and full speed are extremely immersive. Delicate to fly at slow speed, it will require patience to break in and that’s also part of the charm. Cold start procedure works fine, even if the documentation doesn’t explain how to proceed. The documentation is well illustrated but not explanatory, anyway. It’s very easy to find guides online for anyone interested in starting this model from scratch. F-
or an FSX helicopter and all the known problems related to helicopters’ implementation on this platform, the designer did a fantastic job with this model. And, on a side note, his communication is excellent. I had several detail questions which I asked by mail. They were answered within an hour with joined pictures to illustrate the main points. Kudos and Bravo!

LEONARDO SOFTWARE - FLY THE MADDOG X 64 BIT P3D4
Alexander Arlow
Having purchased about every major study-level aircraft released in the last 15 years, I have to say that I am truly impressed with this one. Leonardo has managed to deliver a well rounded, fps-friendly, study-level aircraft created in an era were glass cockpits and steam gauges meet. On the plus side: -) Intuitive view switcher allowing to get through the flightdeck with ease -) Easy controlling of the ND by using the mousewheel and the right mouse button while hovering over the ND -) Ground and cabin OPS simulated -) Loadmanager / flight- and fuelplanner allows for proper flightplanning -
Negative: --
) External sounds are lackluster - a proper high quality soundset is highly recommended -
Be aware though: Tutorials are available on YouTube only and the manuals are not as comprehensive as you would expect from a study level sim - therefor it is only recommended for advanced simmers. Ver-
dict: A must have for every "serious" simmer!

Daniel Niederer
The good old Maddog is back! Love the details and the system deepness. Highly automated but still some workload to keep you busy.

This is a a very nice rendition of KAMA and the surrounding area. The scenery installed with out any problems and has run flawlessly in P3dv4.2. I consider this a good value for the price.
LEONARDO SOFTWARE - FLY THE MADDOG X 64 BIT P3D4
Jack Brown
This is the best, most real to life aircraft you will ever buy for your sim. Complete with excellently crafted 4k textures, real to life flight model, superb support staff, and full documentation for a true study sim experience, this sim could probably get your DC-9 type rating! How does it compare to PMDG? Well, it certainly has every feature in the aircraft and again, in excellent 4k textures, plus something PMDG does not have, a full on load manager that could replace Simbrief or PFPX that directly inputs your planned data into the aircraft in the sim. Even if you're not a fan of the MD-80 series, this plane provides a good challenge, different from any other airliner you may have flown, it will probably be the best virtual aircraft you will ever buy.
