PUBLISHER

On the 6th. June 1944, a Douglas C-47 called “That’s all Brother” took off to lead the largest aerial armada the world has ever seen. They were on their way to spearhead the liberation of Europe and carve a significant chapter in the history of aviation. First flying in 1935, the original design was for a comfortable, medium to long distance airliner that could carry 21 passengers in seats or sleeper berths. The DC-3 as it was first known, popularised air travel in the USA in the 1930’s and went on to fly with most of the world’s major operators along with countless smaller passenger and freight carriers all over the globe.

Due to its rugged design properties and inherent adaptability, it did not take long for the military to recognise the potential in the DC-3. The type became known as the C-47 and was delivered to the US Army Air Force in a variety of specification to suit any purpose. As a troop carrier it delivered paratroops to drop-zones in every theatre of war. It re-supplied beleaguered armies with ammunition and supplies and evacuated the wounded from often inaccessible locations.

In peace-time, the DC-3 “Dakota” carried millions of passengers, flying in just about every country in the civilised world. With close to 2,000 examples still flying today, it is worth remembering that this design is now 86 years old!

Modern, “revitalised” DC-3s can be had with turbo-prop engines and sophisticated avionics packages which should see this piece of iconic aviation engineering operating for at least another 30 years.It is hard to think of another aircraft that can match the C-47/DC-3 in capability, endurance and reliability. “The only worthwhile replacement for a DC-3 is another DC-3” . Sadly true, it is unlikely that we shall ever see the like of the design, ever again.
 
In our simulation tribute, we have attempted to bring you something of the way it feels to fly one of these legends. A bone-shaking, rattling ride - often flying by the seat of your pants and relying on your flying skills and navigation prowess to get you through! You can sample several different variations in passenger and freight types and you can actually drop paratroopers and deliver heavy military equipment in the C-47. Re-enact that fateful day in June 1944 by flying “That’s all Brother” and test your skills to deliver your precious cargo to the drop-zone behind the Normandy beaches.

Many of the real-world functions of the design are replicated, including accurate engine start and management routines, correct operation of hydraulics for landing gear and flaps and a “working” original Sperry Gyro-pilot. There’s even a navigation sextant for those with the spirit to use one!

For modern pilots, we have included integration with the excellent Flight 1 GTN 750 and Rex/Milviz WX weather radar array. If you have these excellent softwares, the panels are already set up to accommodate your gauges. Whether you choose to fly the “Dak” in its original form or with modern avionics and nav-aids we can promise you a truly satisfying simulation experience. Choose to fly the military C-47 or the civilian DC-3, the experience is highly rewarding in either. Choose both and you will have the complete chapter of what must be aviation history’s most famous and enduring story.

RFSCENERYBUILDING - LIPZ VENICE MARCO POLO AIRPORT FSX P3D
Anthony
Nice airport but like all RF Scenery they are not in the same league as Orbx quality so l can’t give them a 5/5. They are really good and do deserve a 4/5.

Been using this several years. Great program with no complaints!
LIONHEART CREATIONS - LIONHEART - DIAMOND STAR DA40 XLS FSX P3D
David
Just got my PPL in a DA-40. Does not look, feel, or sound like the real aircraft. No left turning tendency on takeoff. Doesn’t float on the landings. Horrible G1000 functionality. Just as good as the Abacus A380.

Well it’s so nice to have another great Canadian airport especially from the east coast of Canada. This airport is done very well and I’m very pleased. Well done team!

PILOT EXPERIENCE SIM - PESIM BORDEAUX MERIGNAC LFBD P3D4 P3D5

There are some pleasant details compared to default but also some cartoonish elements that detract from the overall airport. It's not very well optimized for P3D v5. Flicker, flicker, flicker. You get the feeling this developer has a lot to learn still. Also, they misunderstand the LM install recommendations and force it to your C:\ drive. Very inconsiderate. But hey, it's better than default visually it just feels so unstable. Hopefully these guys will get better.
FLYSIMWARE - FALCON 50 FSX P3D
Stefan
A great addon! Nice model with some animations and a detailed interior, excellent hand flying, an brief yet complete documentation, an interactive load manager and the choice between a rather analogue cockpit and the possibility to retrofit it with a more advanced GPS device like the GTN 750 and the REX weather radar (both to be purchased separately-not included!)! -
I love this bird!
JUSTFLIGHT - A318 JETLINER

I have owned this for a year or two now, it sits in the LITE area of complexity. Wh-
ich means since you are alone in the cockpit work load is reduced by half, which in a way makes it feel even more realist (more time to focus on the flying). It has a basic FMC which operates alone quite well, you can load saved flight plans into, also it will plan major routes automatically and also has a direct to function. Overall it is a slimmed down FMC which works well without the need for external plugins (FSUIPC). Th-
e 3D model is up there with the best, the cockpit is a custom made on, it is a little basic and similar to the Default A321. Flight model is pretty good, it is a little underpowered, and has a tendency to want to "nose down" during decent but over all its really good. (I have actually made a few tweaks to the config to get it to make real world performance and its a dream to fly now). There is NO FLY BY WIRE though, but for this price you cant complain, and performance and framerates are so high that you can forgive this. These days it's the only airliner I fly! And, set up correctly she will fly from Shannon to New York just like the real aircraft can. I found using the sound from the Aerosoft A319 suits this aircraft the best but the default sound is also very good. Overal-
l a lovely aircraft and great fun to fly.
