Overview

Aircraft Factory is our budget line of products. So far only for FSX we created this line with one simple idea. Great simulated aircraft at a great low price. With realistic modelling they are aimed at the get up and go flyer whilst keeping the basic checklists and systems in place to keep all flyer’s happy. Ideal for your first payware for the Microsoft flight simulator series, and a great jump of point to the more systems intensive aircraft from the Wings of Silver, Wings of Power and ultimately Accu-sim aircraft.

The flight model was very carefully researched and we used the actual P-51H pilot’s training manual and technical orders to ensure our procedures and performance matched the real thing as closely as possible.

The P-51H differs from the P-51D primarily in performance. The procedures are identical in many cases to the P-51D, and aircraft handling is very similar, with the “H” model having greater agility and a higher roll rate due to its substantially lighter weight and larger ailerons. The fuel capacity is lower on the “H” model because the fuselage tank was made smaller to reduce the negative impact on weight and balance from the excess weight being so far aft from the centre of gravity. However, the “H” model has a range similar to the “D” model because its airframe has slightly less drag, and the aircraft weighs considerably less than the “D” model. The P-51H was conceived and manufactured during WWII and would have seen combat had the war not ended in September, 1945. It was developed on a time line that was roughly concurrent with that of the Focke-Wulf Ta 152, and its performance was similar to the German aircraft. However, the P-51H, with its top speed of 487 mph at 25,000 feet, was substantially faster than either the Ta 152C or H models, by at least 15 mph. In addition, the P-51H incorporated many of the automatic features common to late-war German aircraft. It used a Simmonds control unit to maintain a constant manifold pressure relative to throttle position, eliminating the need for the pilot to “chase” the throttle lever to maintain manifold pressure as the aircraft gained altitude. The supercharger switch from low to high speed was fully automatic, as were many of the controls related to the water injection and war emergency power.

Perhaps the greatest advantage the P-51H would have had over the Ta 152 is the fact that the Mustang remained a superlative dog-fighter despite achieving parity of power and speed with the Ta 152. If anything, the P-51H was a nimbler, better-handling aircraft than the P-51D, and its lighter weight would have allowed a tighter turning radius at high altitude than the German plane. In a dive or level flight, the P-51H was as fast or faster than any single-engine, propeller-driven Axis fighter ever built. The P-51H, although not well-known, was probably the finest piston-engined fighter to emerge from WWII in every respect and was likely the fastest propeller-driven aircraft in the world at the close of WWII.

REVIEWS
The P-51H is the war plane that never got into the war. The first P-51H flew in February 1945, just half a year before the end of WWII. In total only 555 of these “light weight” P-51’s were produced. The P-51H was designed by looking at the way Supermarine build their arcraft: light and agile. Weight loss was an important part of the design proces of this “Mustang”.

FSDREAMTEAM - EUROAIRPORT BASEL MULHOUSE FREIBURG MSFS P3D4.4-5
Jean
Although some of the textures are a bit fuzzy, it's a nice small airport with simplistic interiors. Much better than JustSim's version.

Awesome work on this scenery! I know the place in real and this is really accurate
SIERRASIM SIMULATION - KSWF NEW YORK STEWART INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX
Sergiy
Scenery is good. The only problem I has noticed is there is no proper night RWY lightning on all RWYs! This is the reason for 3 stars. I use FSX, Windows 7.

Outstanding! Looks beautiful and performs well. This is certainly one of my favorite airports. It's right up there with Saint Martin.
PERFECT FLIGHT - FS APPROACHES – ITALY MSFS
Ugo
at the end are only the flight plans for IFR approaches in most of italy airports. But the jepsenn charts are bad copy of documents of 1992, 30 years ago!!! Many airports are different with different approaches, runaway length incorrect, new runaway...... I don't think it's price is correct for what you buy

very beautiful scene. I regularly visit the airport of Hyères and the work done is up to my expectations. We recognize the place very well and the scene does not cause any loss of FPS..... Nice work from Azurpoly.

CloudSurf are one of the best developers when it goes to Asian airports. The terminals are crazy high quality... However I am very sorry for the lack of missing good orthophotos in Asian countries.. (thats not Cloudsurfs mistake though!!) Thank you!
