The PBY Catalina is without a doubt one of the most famous flying boats ever build. After its first flight in 1935 it quickly transformed into the PBY-5A amphibian model that is best known. Despite its strange shape that is rather organic it became a true work horse of many air forces and navies and kept patrolling the oceans for decades. Release of the box: Mid of Mai 2009 (without guarantee)

It had many roles, search and rescue, any shipping or anti submarine patrols or long range reconnaissance. To this day the Catalina is well known to millions and a guest of honor at many air shows.

Features:

Models, sound and flight behavior

  • 11 different models based on the PBY-5, PBY 5A and PBY-6A
  • Different flight behavior for all different models that are checked with all available data and by current Catalina pilots. Now this is said a lot for FS add-on aircraft, but one Catalina operator is actually using this product for simple training in the winter when most Catalina's are hangar queens.
  • Impressive and powerful sound set, you actually will be able to tune the engines using your ears.
  • Aerosoft Sound Module that adds sound to switches, controls and events. From hydraulic pumps to the sound of the engines problems, this creates a far more immersive environment.
  • Two different cockpits, one typical for the 1940s and 1950s and one as many Catalina's are flown today (with modern radio and GPS equipment).
  • Cowl flaps, floats and landing gear has better simulation of influence on drag by use of additional coding
  • More realistic water operation by use of additional coding. Manual (400+ pages) in two parts, includes full actual operational manual of one of the few PBY-5A's flying at this moment.

Gauges and instruments

  • All instruments done in full 3d.
  • Highly realistic Bendix King radio stack (feel free to download the real manuals and use those!)
  • Highly realistic and complex Bendix King KLN-90B GPS receiver
  • Realistic simulation of the Sperry A-3A (Jack & Heinz) Autopilot for the vintage model.
  • The newly developed Interactive Checklist helps you to prevent problems by showing the correct settings with red or green checkmarks. It even includes sound effects and allows you to configure the aircraft for take-off or for a complete dead and cold setup.

Added realism (non standard FSX simulations)

  • Non standard and far more realistic calculations of engine temperatures, taking cowflap position, ambient air temperature, fuel/air mixtures setting, airspeed and engine heat generation into account.
  • Accurate electrical load and hydraulic pressures calculations.
  • Realistic cold engine startup, requiring use of engine primers and fuel boosters.
  • Realistic auto mixture that controls auto rich and auto lean.
  • Realistic carburettor icing that takes moisture and carburettor air temperature into account.
  • Structural icing that will accumulate ice on the structure, adding weight until the aircraft becomes unflyable.
  • Non standard engine failure module that includes sparkplug fouling, damage caused by excessive cylinder head or oil temperature, shock cooling and more.
  • Power reduction due to excessive carburetor air temperature.

  • Microsoft Flight Simulator X (SP2 or Acceleration)
  • Windows XP / Vista / Windows7 with the latest Service Packs (Vista not recommended)
  • Intel Core 2 Duo CPU (2x 2666Mhz) or equivalent (Core 2 Quad CPU recommended)

NEMETH DESIGNS - AEROLITE 103 超轻型运动飞机 MSFS
Jonathon
Ultralight perfection. Gorgeous, excellent sounds, and it handles like a few bars with a fabric wing :) One of the top 2 ultralights in the sim.
SIMWORKS STUDIOS - ZENITH CH701 STOL 短距起降轻型飞机 MSFS
Jonathon
The best STOL LSA I have flown in sim. Excellent feel, sound, look, systems. This module captures the essence of the CH701 perfectly.
RARA-AVIS SIMS - ZIPPY SPORT MSFS
Jonathon
Great value package. Looks, flies, sounds like a rickety little ultralight :) I love this module.

Beautiful scenery of this airport. (This review replaces my old review, after I have solved my personal problems with a conflicting other scenery). Th-
e scenery has many details, that I like very much. I only am missing people inside the terminal.
SWISSMILSIM - 德哈维兰 DH-100 '吸血鬼' 喷气式战斗机 MSFS
Bryant
It is a nice model overall and flies well. The reason I am calling it a couple of stars short is because the VC texturing (and modeling of certain parts of the VC) look outdated as if they are a port-over from FS9/X? Surely this can be upgraded to more current standards?

PRETTY GOOD, BEST WEATHER ENGINE FOR FLIGHT SIMULATION EVER!
AREZONE-AVIATION SOUNDSTUDIOS - 塞斯纳 170B 高清音效包 MSFS
Jan
Sounds in the soundset make the cessna 170 a more enjoyable plane to fly. The sounds are better than the stock sounds. This product is not the easiest to install but it works as described. The sounds did not install to the tundra version, and i had to change some lines in the layout file to make them work on that version of the plane. There is some clipping in the sounds while flying. The sounds in this package are nice and improve the C170, but it hope the issues will be adressed in a update.
SOUTH OAK CO - FS飞鸟 - 美国东北部 MSFS
Bob
I bought MS2020 when it was released and was blown away by the realism of the sim, especially the scenery. Since I purchased it, I have tried to increase the overall experience by adding airports, REX seasons and weather, a virtual airline (Cape Air), as well as FS Realistic in order to emulate the addition of passengers during flight. My latest add if this excellent product by South Oak that interjects birds into the simulation. It's so neat to be taxing out of KBOS and to encounter a flock of pigeons on the tarmac, or a group of geese flying overhead upon takeoff. Wha-
t I like about the program is that the bird sightings are random, just like in real life. Some flights you may have one sighting, other times many. Another thing I like is you can tailor your purchase to the area(s) where you do most of your flying. It's not a "one size fits all" product, and you can buy as few or as many of the regions offered as you want. Great job, South Oak. You have hit the ball out of the park with this one!
INDIAFOXTECHO - F-35 闪电II MSFS
John
Excellent detailed modeling. I know some still have CTDs (I've never had any), and other issues, but they continue to improve it, and the flight model/trim issues seem to be sorted. One of the best developers in MSFS, and this has become one of my favorites to fly.
AC SCENERY - CITY3D 曼谷 P3D4-5
Cho
I've had AC Bangkok since it came out. The most recent update fixed issues with black autogens. As I have couple of its products, I can say, it's very friendly with the FPS. I just wish the edges of their sceneries would blend in with the Orbx colors. So far the edges aren't very subtle.
