Three famous names in aviation history belong to the manufacturers/designers of the Travel Air. Walter Beech, Lloyd Stearman, and Clyde Cessna formed the Travel Air Manufacturing Company in Wichita, Kansas in January of 1925. Travel Air planes accounted for just over 50% of Department of Commerce license applications for August 1928. The first Travel Air 6000 took to the air April 15, 1928 and a legend was born.

The design of the Travel Air 6000 expanded on the concept of the Travel Air 5000, which was the first commercial aircraft to cross the Pacific (July 1927). The summer of 1928 Walter Beech organized a cross country tour promoting the 6000 and by Fall had 14 firm orders. Lucrative air mail contracts with the idea of passenger service as a second income fueled entrepreneurs' plans. But passengers became more of an income opportunity, and Travel Air modified its existing monoplane design to promote "executive flying." Improvements included a toilet/washroom, luxurious interior, the best engines available, wide windows, and updated instrumentation. The price at the factory ranged from $13,000 to $13,500. The most expensive Travel Air was a $20,000 custom built Travel Air A-6000-A power by a Pratt & Whitney engine for actor Wallace Beery.

While intended for executive flying, Travel Airs saw more use as "feeder liners"; early commuter airlines like Delta operated them, as did Texas Air Transport (later TWA) and Woodley Airways (later Alaska Airlines). Bush pilots in Canada and Alaska discovered the ruggedness, load carrying ability, and dependability of the Travel Air, and it became the bush plane of choice for many. One of the more famous companies to use Travel Airs was Johnson's Flying Service of Missoula, Montana. Once described as a "virtual air force of old planes", Johnson's maintained Forest Service contracts well into the 1960's and used both Ford Tri Motors and Travel Airs on floats or wheels to haul smoke jumpers and freight to remote regions. A free add-on effects package is included with each download that once installed will allow you to deploy smoke jumpers. This effect is also available for use with other aircraft and is available on our downloads page at now cost.

The Travel Air 6000 Alaskan Adventure Pack brings to FS9 the experience of bush flying in remote Alaska in a way never before presented for the flight simulator. In the package are 5 distinct aircraft representing aircraft flying today. There are 3 B-6000 versions: the land plane, the float plane and a smoke jumper plane, representing the many roles this great plane of the Golden Age fulfilled. There are 2 of the powerful A-6000 models, both land and float planes, powered by the 450 hp Pratt and Whitney SC-1. All aircraft are faithfully rendered with flight dynamics representing the actual aircraft specifications. Effects and animations include: fully animated pilot, complete VC with operable controls, switches, windows, and animated landing lights. Included as well is a custom scenery package, complete with missions: Shakun Inlet, Alaska! This scenery package creates the bush flying environment adding the immersive experience of the entire package. Try your piloting skills with custom scenarios designed to test the skills of pilot and machine. Its all here for you with the Golden Age Simulations Travel Air 6000 Alaskan Adventure Package!

BLUEPRINT - KEWR NEWARK LIBERTY INTERNATIONAL FS2004
Nadeem Zabaneh
This Scenery is good. It seems that all their texture quality of their models are not high in resolution. BUT, It basically does the JOB!
FSXCENERY - KCOS CITY OF COLORADO SPRINGS MUNICIPAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Tom Richey
My home airport that I've waiting years for. An "OK" rendition, but far from the real thing. The exterior of the airport is a stucco beige, not concrete grey. Gate assignments are wrong, but better than the default. Worth 3 stars. The current freeware version is much more accurate regarding appearance and gate assignments. One of the best features of this scenery is that it doesn't gobble up VAS which most other airports by this publisher do. Anyway, thanks for the effort. As I understand, most of the money paid goes to animal rescue and I'm good with that.
JUSTSIM - LARNACA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT LCLK P3D4
Michael O'Halloran
Another brilliant scenery addon from Just Sim. The detail is fantastic. The performance is very smooth with good FPS. Makes a nice airport to fly some Euro hops in the 737 or A320.
GRAND ISLAND SIM - BANJUL GBYD P3D4
Michael O'Halloran
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.
