This is a brand new simulation of the last purpose-built dive-bomber used by the U.S. Navy.

Designed to replace the Douglas SBD Dauntless divebomber, the new Curtiss SB2C had a difficult birth and a tough early career. Structural weakness, poor performance and significant handling issues all led to inevitable delays for the production model to enter service.
The challenging handling issues were never really resolved and the aircraft earned many nicknames including ‘The Beast’. However, in the hands of experienced crews, the ’Helldiver’ became a formidable anti-shipping attack bomber and sub-hunter, contributing greatly to allied successes in the Pacific theatre.

The flight dynamics in this unique simulation have been engineered to give a challenging, authentic flight experience based on contemporary reports and pilot notes.In experienced hands, the SB2C became one of the most effective weapons employed in the Pacific war and featured in just about every major battle.

Every detail of this amazing machine has been authentically modelled in perfect detail. The rear gunner's cockpit boasts a full animated gunner and twin machine guns, housed in a retractable "turtledeck" which is also fully and authentically animated. Every switch, knob and lever in the pilot's cockpit is functional thanks to many unique animations.

Special "stutter-start" prop effects and sounds simulate the Wright Cyclone engine perfectly and the cockpit includes all the accurate switch procedures for authentic engine starts.

The bomb doors open and bombs will swing down and drop when dive-bombing. The high fidelity exterior model includes the Helldiver's unique dive flap system which has been modelled and functions to a high degree of accuracy. The wings fold revealing detailed working mechanisms and there is a working tail-hook for carrier landings.

There are two brand-new USN pilot figures with animations that include oxygen masks which are put on at altitude and you can toggle the rear gunner action that swings the gunner round and down to man the guns.

This is the most authentic rendition of this venerable USN dive bomber available and will provide many hours of challenging, simulation pleasure.

AEROSOFT - KOSICE-BARCA AIRPORT P3D4
Blanka
nice scenery and my favourite airport love kosice city is very good amazing mountain around the airport 4 stars for terminal texture
PAINTSIM - HD TEXTURE PACK FOR WILCO AIRBUS A340 FS2004
Richard
There's no doubt that these textures are of a high quality and that the author has enhanced the look of the aircraft. However, there's no getting over the fact that it's a lot of money especially compared to the cost of the the aircraft add on itself. It would be helpful if there was an increasing discount based upon the number of 'livery' packages you buy. I'd like to buy more but the cost would compare to buying an aircraft add on which just doesn't sit well with my bank balance. Goo-
d luck and thanks to the author though. He's to be applauded for his efforts and for enhancing our Flight sim experience.

LATINVFR - MADRID LEMD P3DV4
Raul
Consider this one of LatinVFR masterpieces. First, for such a massive airport I have no FPS drop at all (PMDG737 NGXu, 747v3 and Majestic Q400 so far tested). Unlike other sceneries, the parking's with GSX and VDGS are precise, no need to modify parking position manually at all. The gates are number exactly as in Navigraph charts, so choose your parking position in GSX after landing and just follow the charts to your gate(and there are a lot of gates, a lot!). The terminals are beautifully modeled with things that are no even in the description like glass elevators moving. Night illumination while not the best I have seen, its beautiful. Its kind of compatible with ORBX global, I said "kind of" because as you enter the scenery area you can see the change in colors, its subtle but still noticeable. My only complaint if any is that this airport have around 5 towers and you can only get tower view from only one. But that's easily fix with chase plane. I do not feel like taking any stars for the small things I pointed out, so it is a 5 star scenery.
AFLOSIM - CLUJ-NAPOCA AIRPORT FSX P3D
Keith
Stunning little airport! Lots of detail and ground clutter, dirty apron; animated vehicles, birds, people, windsock, etc. The winter ice and snow effects with optional snow piles is excellent. Best feature of all is something I've never seen before in FS - the optional rainbow! (as with some of these things, can be turned on or off via the configurator). Night lighting good. Highly recommended.
BDOAVIATION - LAMEZIA TERME LICA FSX P3D
Jose
Beautiful airport, but there's an issue with the afcad. AI airplanes park where the nice static planes were placed. So you have AI on top of the static. The photo scenery is nicely done, but it doesn't play well with the freeware Italian scenery package. It does blend well with ORBX/LC/Vectors-
. You can disable some of the photo included, but god luck finding the .bgl files. They have unusual names and you will have to go through one by one. There's also a slight performance hit when viewing the terminal. Ha-
ving said all that, I think it's a beautiful looking airport even though a bit over priced even when it's on sale. Lastly I contacted support and did not receive a prompt response. If they fix the afcad, I'll revise my review.

AEROSOFT - LUKLA - MOUNT EVEREST EXTREME FSX
ALVARO
Highly recommended for those who still fly in FSX just waiting for MSF2020. The airport and scenery around, are excellent. It really does challenge your skills as pilot, it is probably one of the most difficult approaches and landings in the world.
FSOARES - SANTAREM AIRPORT - SBSN - FSX P3DV3 P3DV4
Markus
What a beautiful little scenery this is, very well done! It features detailed modelling and crisp texturing throughout, with highly realistic looking textures. And the beauty of it, this is the case in ALL areas of the airport, from the fire station to the maintenance hangars, no area is overlooked. Adding to that, the airport is integrated flawlessly into ORBX OpenLC SA. Perfectly animated and functional SODE windsocks complement the scenery, as well as realistic looking runway lights. I've sent two suggestions for improvement to the developer, who instantly replied and agreed, taking notes for the next update. This is excellent support.
