History

The Supermarine Spitfire is one of the truly legendary aircraft, not just of World War II, but of all time. A brilliant design, the basic Spitfire wing and fuselage were able to be developed over and again into many different configurations during the course of World War II, and each excelled in its own right. This aircraft features all of the latest advances in "Absolute Realism" flight modeling, including engine management and airspeed gage error. We have introduced a new aspect of realism by incorporating the airspeed indicator error factor into the pilot's airspeed indicator. View the chart below to see the error correction factors.

The Spitfire was designed by R. J. Mitchell, an aeronautical engineer of stellar talent who had previously designed such aircraft as the Supermarine S6B, which won the Schneider Trophy in 1931. Borrowing from the developments of others, including the low-wing, monocoque design which came from the United States, Mitchell crafted a superb basic design which stands to this day as one of the greatest piston fighters in aviation history. Mitchell envisioned a light, maneuverable craft with low drag, elliptical wings, and a broad performance envelope. The result was the Spitfire, a capable, lethal, yet forgiving aircraft that proved more than equal to anything the Germans could throw at it, including the vaunted Focke-Wulf 190.

The Spitfire had a number of design characteristics which set it apart from other contemporary fighter aircraft. The Merlin engine, the elliptical wing, the well-harmonized controls, and the versatile wing planform all worked together to create a package that was perhaps unmatched in terms of its immediate effectiveness and its potential to be developed further. Unlike the Japanese Zero, which was obsolete by 1943, the Spitfire was just getting into its prime. Chief among the features that set the Spit apart from other aircraft was its wing, which design served multiple purposes. The elliptical planform and relatively broad root chord allowed a thinner airfoil section, reducing drag while preserving lift, allowing very low wing loading. This increased top speed, preserved a low stalling speed, increased the service ceiling, and provided excellent low-speed agility. But the broad wing chord also allowed the convenient fitment of armament such as multiple 20mm cannon.

The Spitfire set a number of aviation performance records, including the fastest recorded speed in a dive (606 mph true airspeed) and a height record. It last saw combat in 1948 during the Arab-Israeli war, where Spitfires from both sides were pitted against one another. But the honor which will always distinguish this singular aircraft is its superb service during the Battle of Britain, where it -- along with the Hawker Hurricane -- helped to fend off German designs for invasion of Great Britain. For that, it will always be remembered.

About fifty Spitfires survive today, many still flyable.

General Information - Supermarine Spitfire Mk IA

The Spitfire Mk IA was the initial production version with some minor modifications. It utilized the Merlin III engine, and with the availability of high-octane fuel, was able to be overboosted to 12 psi of manifold pressure using a boost control cutout. This greatly increased the top speed, but was discouraged in all but the most dire emergencies. In the event, most pilots considered any form of air combat a dire emergency, and the overboosting of the Merlin III became routine. This aircraft also made use of the Rotol constant speed propeller which improved performance substantially as compared to the original, two-bladed wooden props fitted to the Mk IA.

JETSTREAM DESIGNS - PARIS ORLY LFPO P3DV4
eric Desré
Bravo pour la qualité de ce produit ! Autant pour l'installation que pour la finition et le support. En plus il est maintenu avec une nouvelle mise à jour qui prend en compte les récents travaux de la piste 08/26 ! j'ai attendu longtemps l'arrivée de LFPO sur P3DV4, je n'ai pas été déçu. Du beau travail. Je recommande sans réserve.

JUSTSIM - DÜSSELDORF AIRPORT EDDL - V.2 FOR P3D V4.4+
Wladimir Belenky
New EDDL scenery has surprisingly supper performance! So, thank you Justsim. But I hoped that it would be more lively than its predecessor - static aircraft would make a better picture here. Otherwise is a successful update!
JUSTSIM - DÜSSELDORF AIRPORT EDDL - V.2 FOR P3D V4.4+
kostis papageorgiou
Very good update from JS. Excellent performance for just a big scenery and very good visuals. The only thing i would like, is the 3d grass all the time of the year. It dissapears at fall/witer.

MAJESTIC SOFTWARE - DASH 8 Q400 PRO EDITION 64BIT P3D
Andrew Urbanczyk
My first addon for Flight sim in General. Started in FSX and got the one for P3D as soon as I could. It is by far my favorite aircraft in all of flight simulation. Anyone who is on the fence, make the move. It is fantastic in every way.
PREALSOFT - HD CITIES - CASABLANCA FSX P3D
Ken McVie
This transforms the look and feel of Casablanca airport for P3D by Prealsoft. On takeoff to the west, the city is presented in amazing detail with the port and all key landmarks modelled well. Howeve-
r, I am a bit annoyed with Prealsoft for bringing out a combined Casablanca airport & city package not long after I purchased the airport on its own. Had I waited a few more weeks, I could have purchased the combined package more cheaply than buying the two separately (which is what I did). So, ths alone has put me off buying anymore Prealsoft airport products in the future.
ALPHA DESIGNS - ATC CHATTER SOUND PACK FSX P3D X-PLANE 10/11
matt levi
Just a two zip files of collection of sound files. its designed and sole purpose is to run through a media player external to the sim. No interface with the sim with no menus, no panel addons just run via your media player. For the asking price, you can live stream from a webiste at no cost. Only gets the 1 star for the ease of use and the ability to use it with out an internet connection, Thats about it! NO Mention of this in the product description otherwise I would've avoided it like the plague. The extract is from the readme me file "How to Use with VLC Media Player: 1:simp-
ly right click and press play with VLC Media Player. The sounds will automatically commence. 2:You can skim through and get the frequency of your choice or you can leave it on to filter through itself. How to Use with Windows Media Player: 1: Open up the ATC Soundpacks folder 2: Highlight the subfolder of your desired region. EU= Europe, US=United States 3: Right click and press play with Windows Media player. 4: You can skim through and get the frequency of your choice or you can leave it on to filter through itself." Thi-
s needs to be clearly explained in the product description, to prevent people paying for a product that at first glance with no information a external driven program. Avoid if you have internet connection while using the sim, use the freeware ATC streams instead and save your money.
CARENADO - DO228 100 HD SERIES FSX P3D
thomas holzinger
The model and textures are simply great, as well the immersion in the VC and in the virtual cabin. The engine sound is ok, even the start-up sequence seems too short. The flight dynamics seems reasonable. The model has the Carenado usual animations which looks great. Unfortunately there is a major bug in regard to the stab trim indication which is reversed when the instrument lights are switched on.
