In the late 1930’s Cessna saw a growing need for an inexpensive, light twin. The popular twin of the day, the Twin Beech, was fairly expensive and was often oversized for roles with small businesses or occasionally, small charter airlines.

First flown in 1939 and reaching production in 1940, the T-50 Bobcat was of fabric-covered steel-tube construction featuring retractable main landing gear and electrically actuated trailing edge flaps. With the wing structure built up of laminated spruce spar beams and its fuselage faired with spruce stringers, it gained the nickname, “the Bamboo Bomber.”

The Bobcat quickly found great success as a military multi-engine advanced trainer and utility transport; its wood construction was ideal since it didn’t require diverting a lot of valuable aluminum from the war effort. Over 4600 airframes went into service with US forces, with another 640 flying with the RCAF and the BCATP. Not used for long in post-war service, remaining military Bobcats were declared obsolete by 1949.

The ready availability of surplus T-50’s (available at the time for less than $3000) meant that quite a few made their way into civilian life, finding use in many areas of commercial and private aviation.

The Bobcat also found cinematic fame on the 50's television show Sky King, where a T-50, named Songbird, was flown by the lead character (one of which used on the show was the actor’s own aircraft) until replaced later in the series by a Cessna 310B.

Introducing the Milviz T-50 Bobcat

We are very pleased to introduce the newest aircraft to our line-up, the T-50 Bobcat.

Our goal for the T-50 was to create a highly detailed and precise replica of this classic aircraft. This starts with an exquisitely rendered 3D model, both inside and out. Every switch, lever, crank, and control is in its place, allowing the virtual pilot full control. High resolution textures and smoothly animated gauges, along with high quality audio, add to the sense of immersion.

Once in the air, a carefully tested flight model combines by-the-book numbers with a smooth sense of proper flight response in order to carefully replicate the same experience that so many wartime pilots experienced on their way through the multi-engine training program. Our team has spent countless hours tuning, testing, checking, and reporting on how the aircraft performs so as to ensure an authentic recreation.

Radio Range System

A first for a FSX/P3D commercial product, the T-50 Bobcat includes a detailed and fully functional simulation of the Low Frequency Radio Range system. This was the early radio navigational system used across North America (as well as a few other regions) beginning in the 1930's until replaced by VHF band VOR navigation in the 1950's.

The system allows you to tune a set radio signal and "follow the beam" by listening for the continuous tone while navigating from station to station. Off course information is given to the pilot through a quadrant system of Morse Code signals. A full description is far too lengthy to put into words here, but needless to say it's a fascinating (and slightly challenging) experience, one that perfectly fits within the era and role of the T-50 Bobcat.

MVAMS Configuration

As with our other recent releases, configuration for the Bobcat is though our included Milviz Aircraft Management System (MVAMS). This external application provides easy control over setting your preferred options when the Bobcat is loaded in the simulator.

From within the MVAMS application, you can choose pilot and passenger figures to display, your avionics options, and whether you prefer the T-50 to load cold and dark, or with the engines running and the aircraft ready for flight!

Selectable Avionics

While a T-50 Bobcat pilot from the 40’s or 50’s would have only dreamed of the extensive selection of avionics available in today’s aircraft, we’ve allowed for a modern restoration which may have a more up-to-date cabin, featuring GPS and weather radar. An option is also provided for having no modern avionics at all, so as to allow for those who wish to immerse themselves in the era in which the Bobcat was flown in a military setting.

Built-in configuration support from within our MVAMS application is included for the following in various configurations:

Flight1 GTN 650 (Dual)
Flight1 GTN 750 (Single)
Flight1 GTN 650 & 750 (Combo)
Reality XP GNS 430/530W XP (Combo)
MilViz GNS 430/530 (Combo)
Mindstar GNS 530
WX Advantage Radar
No GPS Option
Please note that compatibility for the above gauge packages includes support for installation and setup of our product only; use of any of the offered options requires a functional existing installation of the appropriate gauge. The Bobcat comes with our MilViz 430/530 combo, but any other gauges we list compatibility for are not included.

Use of any 3rd party avionics package in any desired simulator is also of course restricted to the availability of the avionics package for that simulator. Please see the respective manufacturers’ websites regarding platform compatibility for your avionics package.

Multi-Platform Support

Your MilViz T-50 Bobcat purchase supports installation into a full range of platforms, from one single installer:

FSX: SP2

AFS-DESIGN - AIRBUS A350 P3D
FRANKLYN SALOMONS
I have purchased my share of sim-lite type aircraft and found them rather enjoyable for what they're worth. When I saw the AFS A350 released for P3D I thought why not? Now the V1 release which you'll see on youtube is really old and looks far from an A350, but the V2 is improved and wanting an A350 with a representative VC in Prepar3d ( I have the freeware FSP version, but the aliased A320/330 VC bugged me) I dove in to take one for the team. When first released it was listed as V4 ready but this was quickly removed. I thought it was probably gauges but I still have V3.4 so no biggie, install away. Installed in V4 as well. In V3, it loads at my selected airport, but, no button in the VC works. Bring up the 2D panels, they work, but nothing in the 3D vc responds. Not a good start. I looked in the sim objects panel folder and the gauges are all xml files, so this should not be an issue, unless... I loaded V4. Now it does not officially support V4 but lets be honest, the default FSX aircraft and many FSX native freeware port over just fine as long as they don't depend on dll's. But this A350, "Cannot load model" in the vehicle selection screen. Uh oh. This begins to confirm my suspicion. Load it anyway, select my scenario, loading, crash to desktop. Now a model that claims to be made for P3D having these much issues in two different P3D version where much older (almost 10 year old) FSX models load fine? So I pull up Model Converter X to check and sure enough, FS2004 based mdl file. Did a quick convert (sans animations) and it loads up in P3D v4 select screen and no crash scenario loads. I have to say that in light of this discovery I'm very dissapointed with this developer. I was hoping to get it flying in V4 with some tweaks and offset the seeming negative views towards AFS with an honest recorded flight. but no. You release a model claiming it is P3D specific but its just the same FS2004 based mdl because it seemed to work? Not even tried to recompile with any P3D SDK. Nope. AFS Design let me give you some advice, Prepar3d V4 is here as well as Flight Sim World, the Microsoft ESP engine is moving forward in 64 bit era, these past few and upcoming weeks are a crucial time as people who are transitioning are eager for Natively produced models and sceneries. Many small developers like you have updated their products supporting FS9 to P3D V4 with each installer made with the Sim's Native SDK. And check the reviews, customers are won over. heck, even DD added an FSW install option to their scenery. I've purchase addons from developers I haven't before just because they made that effort and seeing what they did i would by from them again in a heartbeat. In closing, this item labelled as for P3D is outright untrue, but you can redeem yourself. Recompile it with the proper SDK and give that to your existing customers. I personally will rate you higher if you pull through. You have an opportunity right now to gain favor with the community during the transition to V4 and FSW. Other developers have gone in and are reaping the rewards. Don't get left behind. Your move.

Perfect scenery, matching in every detail! Just to recommend!!
JETSTREAM DESIGNS - METZ-NANCY LORRAINE X FSX P3D
Scott Harmes
A fantastic representation of this airport. Another great quality scenery from Jetstream Designs.
JUSTSIM - DÜSSELDORF AIRPORT EDDL FSX P3D
Philip Jensen
This scenery is really a let down by the ground textures. JUSTSIM other sceneries have better ground textures. It really is disappointing considering the buildings look great. You cannot see it easily from the distance but when taxiing it really shows.
AEROSOFT - TRONDHEIM- VAERNES X 2.0 FSX P3D
JASON SMART
This is one of the BEST and comprehensive in terms of developments and advancements I have seen, for instance the animated passengers adds a excellent realism to the overall sim and experience. The only negative thing is that the elevation is WAY off for instance on a downward view it takes you under ground, and some GSX integration errors seem apparent, when gSX was offloading my aircrafts luggage, the luggage containers were in the air, and there was NO baggage handler or equipment in sight as they were under ground again directly due to this elevation error. Also, it seems for a pretty average airport in terms of size it is pretty frame-rate hungry, I have a decent spec PC and overall setup and I am getting some frame rates on ground of 6-10FPS with an average aircraft that I have had or don't have any issue in much more graphic challenging airports such as Mallorca, Malaga X etc in terms of size and details-hopeful-
ly these will be rectified/or improved in an update in the very NEAR future, otherwise it is an excellent rendition and enjoyable airport and approach.
NUVECTA - FLASHPOINT SOUTH CHINA SEA FSX P3D
Jeffrey Kimball
So I haven't purchased any of your scenery - though I'm awful interested in your Flashpoint series. Trouble is, your North Korea scenery seems to have the exact same photos as your South China Sea scenery. Investigating further, I noticed that all of your landscape scenery seems to have the exact same photos regardless of state viewed. I'm confused. Is there somewhere I can view the actual photos of the actual products I intend to pay for? Apparently, not on your website. I visited there and it doesn't show any photos at all for the Flashpoint series, just a list of airports included. Can you direct me?
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - NY AIRPORTS V2 X : KEWR, KLDJ, KCDW FSX P3D
Marcin Gwiazdzinski
What can be added? Great performance and optimization, beautiful night lighting, static aircrafts, SODE with active jetways, animated objects. Perhaps the airports are not outstanding works of art, but you can use them without fear of poor fps. Very decent product for a vey reasonable price for me!
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - NY AIRPORTS V2 X : KJFK, KLGA, KTEB FSX P3D
Marcin Gwiazdzinski
For me it was the long-awaited re-edition. Finally it's compatibile with all P3D versions, incl. P3D v4. After the first flights it seems to be much better optimized, thanks to the new techniques I guess. Performance is much better in my sim too. I used to the additional optional features, which can be choosed during the installation - it's nice. SODE with active jetways, new lighting system, animated objects - all of them were known for me from the previous DD sceneries, so they didn't suprise me but for sure I appreciate and like them. As for me - with this very reasonable price it's a very decent product.
