OVERVIEW:

So, what is the most beautiful piston engine airliner? Pose this question among two or more aviation enthusiasts and you may be sure that a lively, possibly heated discussion will ensue. However, I would be quite surprised if most, if not all, would ultimately agree that the Lockheed “Constellation” was the most beautiful, graceful if you prefer, or at least among the top two or three.

The “Connie,” as it was universally and affectionately called (much to the dismay of Eddie Rickenbacker of WWI fame who, as the owner of Eastern Airlines, thought the name to be too effeminate) was a spectacular and singular aeronautical design from the first rude sketch of “Excalibur” to the last L-1649 “Starliner.” Gathering many firsts and breaking many records in its almost five decades-long useful lifetime, Constellation consistently stands out from her sister airliners both visually and functionally. Sadly, the many luminous stars embodying this “Constellation” were ultimately eclipsed when at their brightest by the urgent, inexorable force of progress which saw the end of the age of the long-distance piston engine airliners and the birth of the big, jet-powered transports. This new era of air-transportation in the U.S. Began on 26 October 1958 when Pan American Airlines (Pan Am) flew a Boeing 707 with 111 passengers from New York to London. Soon, the jet-powered Douglas DC-8, Convair 880 and Sud Aviation “Caravelle” joined the 707 and long-range piston airliners were through.

Even so, there are many, this writer among them, who posit that even whilst swifter, no kerosene burning aluminum tube has ever come close to matching Connie’s superb grace and poise. Her story is full of ironies and surprises, of Geniuses, Presidents and Pioneers. You see, there once was this fabulously wealthy, incandescently brilliant, eccentric movie mogul, aviator and airline owner who had an idea for an airplane... - Excerpt from Constellation manual history by Mitchell Glicksman © 2016

FEATURES:

History comes alive: Experience a timeless legend brought to life inside a simulation.

Every aircraft is unique: Don't expect all gauges to read the same values, just like the real airplane. And each airplane is persistent.

Four crew positions: pilot, co-pilot, flight engineer, and navigator. Fully modelled and functioning positions constructed with down to the rivet detail.

Intelligent crew and responsive passengers:

Your engineer can manage all the systems on the fly, responding to various conditions

- Copilot calls out critical info

- Navigator observes and posts findings

- Flight attendent tirelessly works for both you and the passengers (just like the real world counterparts)

Unexpected events possible: Engines along with other systems including heating, air conditioning, and pressurization can be problematic

Captain's Career: Your performance is remembered and can get better, worse, or stay consistent based on your flying abilities and flight management

Real time Load Manager: with the ability to load individual passengers, cargo, and fuel or select presets.

Custom Navigator's Map: Zoomable map can be customized to show the desired information

Default and Historic Sperry Autopilot: You can select either autopilot in the sim

Authentic fuel deliver includes primer only starts: You can start the engines properly by using primer with the mixture in the OFF position.

Auto-Mixture: that actually performs as intended. Now you can set for “auto-rich” or "auto-lean" and the aircraft fuel to air ratio will be automatically determined and set by the carburetor based upon various factors such as altitude.

Custom Cockpit Systems and Gauges for the ultimate in realism taken far beyond what is available by default.

Inertia starters: Start these big beautiful engines by the book using authentic inertia wheel energizing and engagment

Feathering props and air starts: Custom physics allows for realistic feathering and air starts without using the starter

Deep cockpit lighting: Flood, Flourescent, and gauge lighting modeled

Dual speed superchargers: Proper supercharger physics and each engine can independently run in either high or low blower

New slip and ball code from the Accu-Sim T-6: Enjoy smooth, custom physics in this critical gauge during turning maneuvers

Authentic flight stability: The Connie was known for being a little less stable in pitch than other aircraft, which requires a little more finess and attention

Piston combustion engine modeling

Real-world conditions affect system conditions, including engine temperatures.

Fully click-able cockpits: with authentically working systems and gauges.

3D Lights 'M' (built directly into the model.)

Pure 3D Instrumentation.

- Natural 3D appearance with exceptional performance.

- Smooth movements.

Fire Extinguisher system with fully functioning overheard panel and controls.

Ground Power Unit (GPU) to power systems with engines off and not drain the battery.

Cabin pressurization system controls. You control the target altitude and the rate of pressure change and the system authentically displays and manages cabin pressure.

Three different liveries: including TWA, BOAC, and a C-69 cargo paint

A2A specialized bump mapping and specular lighting on all models.

Crew Reports pop-up 2D panel keeps important information easily available

Custom Navigator's map: accessible via keystroke or the Navigators station.

Manage temperatures with engine cowl flaps and oil cooler flaps

High temperatures can adversely affect engine performance, Serious overheating can cause scoring of cylinder head walls including ultimate failure if warnings are ignored and overly abused.

Spark plugs can clog and eventually foul if engines are allowed to idle too low for too long. Throttling up an engine with oil-soaked spark plugs can help clear them out

Experience authentic asymmetrical drag when operating various flap systems in flight.

REVIEWS
Following the T6 Texan, A2A released another big 4-motor aircraft: the Constellation.rnThis was very exciting, as A2A improves their products with every new release. Makes you wonder what “Connie” has as improvements compared to the earlier released Boeing 337 Stratocruiser.rnFSX has limits, A2A however always delivered very well operating aircrafts. Question is how much better a product can they deliver?

INDIAFOXTECHO - F-35 LIGHTNING II MSFS
Joe
An excellent plane and so happy to have it in the Sim. I did experience some CTDs but turning off tool tip popups for when hovering over switches helped a lot.
SOUTH OAK CO - FS BIRDS - CANADA - EAST MSFS
Ken
Just purchased this and easy fast install. Decided to fly the Trike low and slow in PEI (Prince Edward Island ????????). Wow-
! So many birds flying! In flocks, small groups and individually. Love the hawks circling high above and the pigeons on the field. I buzzed them up high with the drone camera, and literally flew along with the flock! What a great immersive addon. I had USA Southern.
AEROPLANE HEAVEN - SUPERMARINE SPITFIRE MK1A - MSFS
christian
I don't know if the product i buy is updated or not but whatever reason both planes i've bought from Aeroplane Heaven got the same sound issues. They sound great when the engine is in idle or very low RPM but as soon as u rev it up or cruising you can clearly hear the engine sound clip ending and starting over. The rest of the plane is perfect both visually and performance wise but the repeating sound clip just needs to be worked with. On all their planes before they move on to new projects!Also if you cut the engine from outside the cockpit the engine just mutes itselv. It's like youy actually just press the mute button nothing happens besides that

Iam using P3Dv4.5 It is very important to bring RJCC in a higher level in the library! Still it looks like SFX (4 stars), but the quality is good. The 747-400 and F-15J, you have to be lucky when you are at the airport. Iam happy with RJCC, it brings you closer to Alaska, for example.
MP SCENERY - HALF MOON BAY - KHAF MSFS
Brent
Major, major points off for using default ground textures. Ramps, taxiways, runway have no character or realism. Airport modeling is fine, texture work isn't bad - could be a bit better, but not really worth complaining about… ( a few more texture variants on hangars, and less saturated rust textures would have been nice ) Breakwater and boats in the harbor are nice details. I’l-
l give the benefit of the doubt and assume the double radome at Pillar Point is due to me having the “We Love VFR” pack and there's a conflict. Wi-
th a few days work on the ground textures / decals this could be a 5/5 package. Half Moon Bay is a small airport and doesn't have a lot of hangars or structures - so nailing the look and weathering of the ground materials is 75% of the value of the scenery. I hope this is constructive to the developer, and I would re-review in a second, if this package is updated.

A great airport addon for MSFS. High quality work everywhere covering a vast area and many buildings. Well worth the asking price.
PEARL SIMULATIONS 2 - PHTO - HILO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Efstathios
Since I cannot delete my previous review. I followed Enrique's guidance regarding the Content.xml file located in the LocalCache root. That seems to have fixed the issue. Please take some time to update the textures and FPS drops and this would be golden.
TABURET - HAWAII 10 M DEM MSFS
Andy
I live in Hawai'i (on O'ahu, in Kāne'ohe near PHNG), and the Taburet Hawai'i 10M DEM and Waterways are an absolute MUST to make the default scenery look better. This addon was recently updated, and all of the airports that were affected (bumpy / roller-coaster runways) were fixed. In addition, the resolution of Lana'i (PHNY) was adjusted to just 5M! I can't wait until better resolution mapping is available for the entire state. Feel free to message me for any questions! XBGT: Latka.
