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.

Really well detailed, but in order to make it look as realist as Medellin area you really must follow the instructions for Autogen etc. I have Pilots Mesh and Orbx global and LC South America vectors and it blends flawless.

Bought this airport in September 2019. While visually well done -- accurate and pleasing, it is an inconsistent performer. Framerates sink to single digits on approach at dusk and can vary greatly (~60 to the teens) from the gate to departure and pattern ALT. Good purchase overall for me, but consider the performance. My machine is a Intel i7-6900K32GB RAM, GTX 1080Ti which generally has no problems with this level of scenery complexity.

Really well done! Audio guide on top of that is a perfect addition! (Just a minor point towards Microsoft is that it would me nice to have a separate section for add-ons instead of having them in the bush trips!) Grea-

Really nice airport with cool features and details. Maybe there is a compromise between high texture quality and performance, but I think there have been found a golden mean, especially for a such a big airport. I also noticed few minor bugs, but I'm pretty sure that fixes will come soon.

Finally a good scenery of Japan at a reasonable price. Great details, amazing performance on my old rig. Fantastic job! Will it be available for msfs?

Great thought-out routes. Tons of sight seeing. Will be way better once the developer updates these into Bush Trips (something they said they are planning to do)...

This UK 2000 'Port Over' offer's an Accurate Rendition of Luton but the cost of the Airport is excessive and for this reason. In it's past FSX and XPlane incarnations Luton and other Offerings by UK 2000 demonstrated the Excellent Technical Abilities of it's Creator using the SDK provided for those Sims. Now that we are in the World of MFS 2020 it would be great to see this Talented Company take advantage of the MFS 2020 SDK and develop some Ground Breaking Renditions for the Community. I am a Long Term Customer of this Company but will not purchase from them until they provide us with Airports that are worthy of their Talent and our new Sim.

Great addon adding immersion for your flight. You can focus on proper flying, not serving meals, which is great (all this stuff is fully automatic). Career mode is fantastic. You can use PACX as a logbook. Moreover, you can print or save as a PDF file flying report with data from a destination to the landing rate—FSpassange-
r as it has to be. Because you are not a flight attendant, you are a pilot.
