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!

Customer Reviews
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.

taxi2gate munich performs and looks great on p3d v4 .I cant believe how crisp it looks and how smooth it runs with 60+ FPS
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!
