When the F-14 entered fleet service, there was a noticeable shift in political power projection. Carriers of the US navy had always been important elements of political influence, but their engagements came with a high cost. The F-14 on the other hand, seemed invincible. It had combined the roles of two specialist aircraft, the F-4 and F6D, and presented a significant step forward in each capacity.

Notes: The updated ‘Extended’ version is a free new version to all current users that was created with the assistance of many enthusiastic F-14 drivers. It includes not only many new functions but also makes many existing functions more realistic.

Fifteen seconds was all that was needed to reverse a guns solution with an F-4 on its tail. A radar so powerful that it could burn through jamming signals emitted by other combat aircraft while guiding a missile that fell from 100,000ft at Mach 5.

The United States had, since the Korean War, favored decreasing the quantity of deployed units while increasing their sophistication and effectiveness. The F-14 was one of the first aircraft that fully embodied this theory, and it reigned supreme over the seas. There was no other aircraft that came close its ability to strike beyond visual range.  If F-14`s were patrolling, the carriers were safe and the US could venture into regions that were previously inaccessible. Dictators were suddenly looking out of their seaside palaces knowing a carrier was just over the horizon. These carriers and their new air wings created an era of force projection where the outcome of political events could be influenced without a combat engagement.

The Aerosoft F-14 Extended was designed with two principle objectives. The first was to create an authentic and detailed representation about what it was like to fly the early model F-14`s and the refinements made over the first 20 years of the airframe`s service life. The second was to create an accessible simulation for all users. While many of the advanced systems will require you to RTFM to operate effectively, anyone can be in the air within seconds of loading the sim (well maybe a little longer if you`re setting up a carrier launch). While failure logic, such as engine compressor stalls are included, they will not become active and take out an engine unless you enable the feature.

The only thing you can`t simplify are the flight mechanics. Not a single tester or developer was un-challenged when attempting to trap this bird. But, the physics are consistent and based on real world data. As you learn why the F-14 does or does not respond the way you think it should, your intuition of flight mechanics will be become more sophisticated. Simply put, if you learn to fly this aircraft with a serious perspective, you will become a better pilot.

Final word. One of the defining aspects of this project has been an almost unyielding sense of collaboration from outside development houses, retired military personnel, and a group of dedicated F-14 fanatics that have been willing to advise and test over many long hours to make this a project a reality. Thank you and salute!

Keep in mind this is a high complexity add-on, intended for experienced users.

TacPack by Vertical Reality Simulations:

  • Users who own TacPack will be able launch payloads including the F-14`s potent beyond visual range capabilities

  • Approach Rating system which evaluates how well pilots set their aircraft up for a visual approach
  • Sim Start Options which allow users to set and remember the F-14`s loading state
  • Visual Systems
    • HUD - A models: vintage type that is projected on the windscreen
    • HUD - B model: Sparrow Hawk model with integrated combiner
    • HUD - Both Models: All Flight and Steering modes have been created, including A/A and A/G with CCIP, shows Carrier TACAN and ILS symbology
    • VDI (Vertical Display Indicator) - in-the-cockpit aircraft attitude instrument with ground and sky textures
    • HSD (Horizontal Situation Display) - compass rose and steering symbols (TACAN, CRS, ADF)
    • DDD (Detailed Data Display) - shows raw radar data in azimuth and range-rate
    • TID (Tactical Information Display) - presents radar targets in a computer-generated, synthetic, clutter-free format
    • RWR (Radar Warning Receiver) - shows ground and sea based radar emitters
    • AWG-9 radar - 8 modes of operation (including STT, RWS, TWS, PLM), adjustable azimuth scan and elevation bar patterns, ranges from 5 to 200nm
    • All displays have the authentic F-14A type symbology and functionality is programmed according to the NATOPS Manual
  • Engine Management (TF-30)
    • Compressor stalls (aero): Poor management of the aircraft will result in random compressor stalls which can induce a dreaded flat spin. Stall algorithm is random; stalls will onset, clear, and engine restarts based on a continuous supply of random numbers, while aircraft state (Altitude, Mach, Angle of Attack, and Sideslip) as well as aircraft configuration increase or decrease the chances of pitfalls and recoveries
    • Compressor Stalls (throttle): Rapid throttle movements in the IDLE region can saturate the combustion chamber and stall a compressor
    • Mach Lever: During Air Combat Maneuvering; Engine IDLE RPM is automatically increased at high AoA to increase stall resistance (both types)
    • Engine Fires: Hot starts and compressor stalls dump fuel into the combustion chamber even though no thrust is being generated. Exceeding a transient temperature limit for critical time or heating beyond an absolute limit will cause the blades to melt and the engine will be lost
    • Sump Tanks: Turbines are directly supplied by gravity fed sump tanks which only hold a combined 600lbs of fuel. Negative G maneuvers and high thrust settings can starve the engines in a hurry
  • Flight Systems
    • Complete wing sweep implementation with all four modes of operation: Auto, Bomb, Manual, and Emergency (with Oversweep). Auto Mode uses two sweep channels with dependencies on Mach and Altitude to determine optimum wing sweep angle
    • Maneuver Flaps: Both automatic and pilot controlled (separate system from main flaps)
    • Glove Vanes: Extend with Maneuver Flaps at sweep angles greater than 25° and also at very high Mach
    • Approach Auto Throttle: The F-14 is a notoriously difficult plane to land, Approach AutoThrottle maintains the aircraft at optimum AoA
    • Direct Lift Control: Pilots can toggle a partial extension of the inboard spoilers to adjust AoA during approach
    • Ground Roll AeroBrake: When armed, Inboard and Outboard spoilers fully extend with weight on wheel and throttles at Idle

    • MiniHUD: Optional 2D gauge gives access to information which would be readily available in a pilot`s peripheral vision
  • Auto Flight Control System (AFCS)
    • Three channel passive Stability Augmentation System (SAS). Pilot inputs and control surface deflection rates are reduced, which allow better control in the normal flight regime
    • Aileron-Rudder Interconnect designed directly from NASA source documentation
    • Built from scratch Autopilot with Control Stick Steering in Pitch and Bank Hold Modes
    • Vector mode follows a loaded flight Plan
    • Auto Carrier Landing System combines with Auto Throttle for a hands free carrier landing. 2D Alignment gauge for AFCS can be used give precise feedback on ACLS lineup
  • Flight Mechanics
    • Thoroughly tested by retried Fleet F-14 pilots and a software engineer involved with a professional F-14 simulation. Performance and control response & stability data were sourced and matched as closely as possible to NATOPS and NASA technical archives

FSXCENERY - KSYR SYRACUSE HANCOCK INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Andrew
First of all, I would like to thank the developer for the Syracuse Hancock Airport. I feel deeply connected to Syracuse and finger lakes area, so I'm glad I can make few flights to and from this airport. Howev-
er. Just like one of the pilots before me, I think, the price for the quality if too much. I know, the airport has been released some years back, but I had to spend another 5-6 hours working on afcad file (adjusting gates, adding missing airbridges, hazard lights and also apron lights, as these do not show in my sim for some reason). I visited Hancock airport in late Autumn of 2019 during snow blizzards so I was hoping, come winter, I will be able to do some nice winter flights only to discover, that the ground textures are for summer time only! So in order to do winter flights, I had to remove some of the original files and work on landclass from scratch. Not something I was expecting to do after paying for the airport. So, all in all, I took one star for afcad I had to adjust, one for land class I had to do myself and one for lack of winter textures.
PREALSOFT - HD CITIES VIENNA FSX P3D
Douglas
This is a follow up on Vienna and how the developer responded. Although a fix was attempted to make this airport right the developer ran into some issues that were beyond their control, so they did the best they could. The developer was very apologetic and made me the customer a generous gesture, they are not bad guys they just ran into an issue beyond their control. I have almost every one of their sceneries and I can tell you they are not bad. As far as Vienna goes what they offer is still much better than default, so give these guys support, they all work hard. The rating given is for the great response from Prealsoft

This is a very nice scenery and necessary for the Caribean to fly. Even if this is published as "P3Dv4" there is a possibility to get this into P3Dv5 with the help of the developer - update for the config-tool needed and a patch. This all is handled in less than 10 hours. Thumbs up !
HUEYTUNING - PAF890SAR FSX P3D
Simon
This is a very short review of the excellent PAF890SAR repaint. I tried the paint kit by myself, but I wasted 2 weeks of time and at least 60 hours searching for any parts and could not find them. Finally, I gave it up. Designing a white repaint is anyway the hardest task. This pay ware repaint is worlds better than all the default and freeware repaints ever made for the Milviz Huey Uh-1h. I’ve made the effort and was comparing it with MILVIZ default USAF Rescue repaint. Here are just a few details that shows the skills of the artist. 1. The yellow stripe with the registration 66890 and the two blue stripes are designed very exactly around the tail fin. On the default USAF Rescue repaint, the black stripe at the tail fin was only mirrored and looks very loveless. 2.Th-
e PAF890SAR repaint is the only repaint where the landing skids are colored in another separate black tone. 3. It is also very striking that the antenna on the roof is painted in white. 4. The yellow ribbon and every single letter from the vertical lettering has been perfectly adapted to the shape of the body, (that’s a masterpiece) 5-
. Additional maintenance levels have been incorporated with lovely details. 6.The Rescue Angel and the Huey 2 stickers are razor sharp even in highest zoom level. I’m definitely thrilled with the great implementation of this Philippine Air Force rescue helicopter. I will definitely buy the other two repaints. The price may seem a bit expensive at first glance, but hey, try the paint kit yourself and you will quickly realize this PAF890SAR repaint is a masterpiece No doubt, five stars!

Buyer Beware this scenery has problems and the developer states there is "No Fix" on their end for this. The color of the land class is very washed out and the ground, (land class) loads as you fly directly in front of your plane; it is very annoying and looks and performs bad. How he is allowed to continue to sale this is beyond me!

RICHER SIMULATIONS - CARIBSKY: TBPB 2020 FSX P3D

Being a Concorde fan, Barbados is a MUST HAVE scenery. I had been using a freeware version for years, and I have to admit I was quite happy with it so, the obvious question is, is it worth paying for the update? The developer really deserves the price charged. Barbados is a small airport, but this version is incredibly rich in details. Its quality is second to none, so if you like to invest in high quality sceneries there is no doubt your money will be well invested. As I mentioned, I am Concorde fan and currently I only fly Concorde-X by FSLabs, which requires P3Dv3. At fist, the only surface shown was the runway and there was grass were taxiways and the terminal platform where supposed to be. I contacted the developer, exchanged a couple of emails and in less than 24 hours we solved the problem. In my case what solved the problem was leaving the default directory for the installation (the counter-intuiti-
ve "Prepar3D v4 Add-ons") for the Config tool to work correctly. Otherwise, the "patch" to convert the default P3Dv4 scenery into a P3Dv3 compatible did not work and the problem described before showed. Now that my problem is solved I am a super-happy pilot flying my Concorde in and out Barbados :-)
