    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.

    • 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

    • 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

    • 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

    Amazing model,I chose for long,tried many fighters before,but F-14 simulation is immaculate.I'd like to say big big thank to creators!


    Absolutely stunning! Such incredible attention to details. There are a couple things you should know before purchasing if using FSX Steam like myself. The saved flights or carrier ops don’t always install correctly due to a “FSX bug” according to Aerosoft. Also the kneel position when trying to attach to the catapult doesn’t work. Both are easily fixed, just contact Aerosoft and they will will respond quickly to get you the fixes needed to get you up and running. For me is was just a matter of moving the carrier flights source data up one folder, and downloading updated aircraft provided by the developer. Once I did as instructed everything has been smooth. Don’t let this scare you off please. This F14 A &B package is quite incredible and totally worth the little extra steps that may or may not be necessary. The F14A is modeled as should be expected showing off it’s dated HUD and underpowered first gen engines. The A seems to be more prone to compressor stalls and do not always restart. Just the the real thing. Scary when a double stall occurs but survivable if just one refuses to restart. The B seems a little less likely to stall as easily, and is noticeably faster! Not as fast as a D but gets close. I’ve topped the B out at M2.0 or slightly over. It’s climbs a lot better as well, unlike the A which like the real thing (depending on load weight) required climbing in steps to cruise levels. I just love this plane and Aerosoft has given us a truly outstanding model to fly in our sims. Win10, 3.2ghz i7, 16GB RAM Intel UHD630 Integrated graphics. ( loss of frame rates when in high detail areas or large add on scenery areas such as Los Angeles city or Manhattan X. Otherwise flying over open ocean or typical areas of F14 operations very little drag on system resources. )


    This F-14 as good as the superbugF-18, its worth the cost and performance is amazing, I have many hours everything works and company stands by its product's..


    this is best fighter Addon for me! really nice! be like a Top Gun pilot!
