Douglas DC-4/C-54 Skymaster and Aviation Traders ATL98 Carvair for Lockheed Martin Prepar3D v.4

Discover this iconic aircraft, first flown in 1942 and still in operation in the 2000's. This package contains 10 variants covering operations over the type's entire history. You will be able to experience every aspect of its amazing and hard-working history from World War II to the post-war commercial airlines, from military use around the world to firefighting, and even the extraordinary Carvair cargo variant developed in the '60's.

History

In 1938, the Douglas Aircraft Co. decided to produce a four-engine transport about twice the size of the successful DC-3. It built a single DC-4E prototype, to carry some 42 passengers. In development it proved too expensive to maintain, and so the company started again and developed a new model, the less complex DC-4. Due to World War II, the aircraft was not put into commercial service until 1946, but in the interim its military derivative, the C-54 ”Skymaster” transport, was ordered by the U.S. Army Air Forces starting in 1942. The first, a C-54, flew from Clover Field in Santa Monica, California on 14 February 1942.

Over the production history of the aircraft, Douglas ended up building 1,241 DC-4s and its military counterparts, including the R5D for the Navy. A total of 1,163 C-54/R5Ds were built for the United States military between 1942 and January 1946.

During World War II, C-54s flew a million miles a month over the rugged North Atlantic — more than 20 round trips a day. So successful and reliable was the design that it became the first presidential aircraft, ordered for Franklin D. Roosevelt.

After World War II a further 79 DC-4s were built. Commercial airlines placed more than 300 civilian DC-4 transports into service, and these DC-4s, along with C-54s converted for civil use, carried more passengers than any other four-engine transport during their careers.

A variant with four Merlin engines was built in Canada postwar as the Canadair North Star.

A total of 330 DC-4s and C-54s were used in the Berlin Airlift in 1948-1949, which made them the most used types in that crisis, and C-54s continued to fulfill their role during the Korean war and after. The aircraft have also found other uses over the years, such as in aerial firefighting, and few DC-4's were still proving their worth well into the 21st century, such as those with Buffalo Airways and Brooks Air Fuel.

A further development of the type was done by Aviation Traders in 1961, when 21 airframes were converted to specialised cargo and automobile air ferries. The conversion of the original aircraft entailed replacing the forward fuselage with one 8 feet 8 inches (2.64 m) longer, with a raised flight deck similar to that of the later Boeing 747, to allow a sideways hinged full-fuselage nose door. It also entailed more powerful wheel brakes and an enlarged fin and rudder, often thought to be a Douglas DC-7 unit, but in fact a new design. These were in service until the 1970's, with two aircraft still in existence in 2017.

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
RICHER SIMULATIONS - CARIBSKY: TBPB 2020 FSX P3D
Bernhard
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!

Nice scenery with a lot of details they have made a lot of efforts, keep up the good work!
PREALSOFT - HD CITIES VIENNA FSX P3D
Douglas
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!
ANTS AIRPLANES - TIGER MOTH PRO FSX P3D
David
Outstanding on all counts! The detail and physical characteristics are top notch. If you own just one classic biplane type make this one a top candidate. No, it’s not fast but it’s nimble and still capable of some aerobatics as long as you keep your load as low as possible. The “complete auto start” goes through all of the start up procedure pieces in detail. You could change that to a quick start (cntl E) or just set it to force a full manual start up. This plane has many little tidbits and added details from voice changes, to wear and tear tracking. Eventually your plane will need maintenance (if enabled) and yo7 will need to complete those maintenance tasks or suffer problems or failures. You get a lot more than bargained for here. Runs great with medium hi graphics settings at full realism on my 512 integrated graphics, Steam edition, even with intense weather settings while flying in add on scenery. Great for sight seeing VFR conditions

Muy buen escenario lástima que falten los edificios de la zona militar, reemplazados por unas vallas. Very good pity that the buildings of the military zone are missing, replaced by fences.

A very good product. Works nicely, as advertised, with Vpilot. Reasonable price. One advice - to develop more detailed, step by step, written instructions of how to set it up. Overall- 5 star product
