The J-3 is a small, simple, light aircraft that was built between 1937 and 1947. With tandem seating, it was originally intended simply for flight training, but went on to become one of the most popular and best-known light aircraft of all time. The Cub's simplicity, affordability and popularity has enabled it to retain a strong presence in General Aviation right up to the present day, around the world. So popular is the aircraft that some companies continue to produce close imitations of the aicraft in kit form.

Of special note is the “Flitfire” variant in this package, the name being a derivative of the famous “Spitfire” aircraft. Some 49 aircraft were assembled in the U.S. in 1941 and painted in British Royal Air Force roundels, and subsequently raffled off in order to raise money for the RAF Benevolent Fund in aid of injured Britsh military flyers (these were not actual RAF aircraft). The fund-raiser was a great success. They came with a range of engines, and in this package you will find both Continental and Franklin powered versions.

The Franklin powered aircraft also has the three-piece windscreen, which was standard on early J-3’s.

This FSX package will enable you to enjoy your flying in any season, in any environment, demonstrating the flexibility of the design and illustrating even more of the many reasons the J-3 is still such a popular aircraft today.

We hope you enjoy flying this faithful rendition of history.

COLOMBIAN VIRTUAL DESIGN - SKMZ LA NUBIA MANIZALES XP11/XP12
daniel
It would be ideal, to change the texture of the runway and place more vegetation and houses as can be seen in google maps by the head of track 28.
FLY 2 HIGH - KVPS - DESTIN-FORT WALTON BEACH MSFS
Luis B.
Double jetways, version 2 did not change anything around terminal. Animated people by terminal still appearing and disappearing. AI traffic driving on top of protection barriers in front of terminal. This scenery is only good for flying over terminal really fast so you won't see all the glitches.
SIMBITWORLD - A PILOT'S LIFE - CHAPTER 2

Since purchasing this product 6 months ago, I use it for every single flight. It challenges your abilities to fly and gives you a purpose to fly. I’ve flown to destinations I never thought of previously. APL runs flawlessly and it is constantly being improved. If you want to fly for an airline and not own it APL is for you

Super fun flying the piper cub around the airstrips around the park and the little details like signs and fences at each airfield is a nice touch. Great job iniBuilds.

Tulsa International Airport is my home base. This is a terrible representation of the airport. The terminal is a little bit better, but other than that, it's missing the largest American Airlines maintenance base's hangars. The Oklahoma National Guard is not represented. It's missing numerous FBO's. And it's missing three large Bizjet Hangars among other notables.
LATINVFR - FORT LAUDERDALE KFLL P3D
David
Its a beautiful scenery, but it has performance issues. At dense settings, it is very heavy on frame rates, and when coupled with Aerosoft or PMDG products, it can become unbearable, and I have a 12GB 3060T. The elevated RWY 10R is an impressive design attempt, but the transition from flat to slope is abrupt and rough. Lastly, the dynamic lights don't work upon arrival. They do work fine if you start your flight at KFLL. Overall, very beautiful scenery with a "heavy" hit on performance (unlike LFVR KMCO which performs beautifully!).

Good one. No stutters no morphing for me. Please Mr. Taburet update your older mesh as well. Thx

Nice detail, frame rate friendly. Term-
inal interior is not modelled, but I‘m not interested in that anyways. Fin-
ally a good quality airport in Romania! It nicely complements the handful of existing freeware airports (like Baia Mare and Satu Mare)
VIRTUALCOL - JETSTREAM SUPER 31 FOR FSX
L R
I have FS2004, XP11, Aerofly, P3D V5.3 and MSFS and my utilisation of each of is determined by a number of factors. FS2004 is still my favourite largely due the large amount scenery and add-ons which still look good on a fairly high spec rig, which is dedicated to FS2004. I bought the FS2004 version of this 'aircraft' and have now have the FSX/P3D version which runs in P3D V5.3 without any issues that I have been able to discover at the time of this review. The interior is still not up to the standard of Carenado, but it is reliable (unlike the Falcon 50 by said developer) Hav-
ing spent hours with the MOM for the real aircraft it appears that that the fuel capacity and consumption need tweaked via the config file (see LM P3D guide on this) but that aside everything else appears to conform at price expectation and this 'aircraft' is a terrific value proposition. It's a subjective view but Virtualcol show so much promise and I will be duplicating my FS2004 purchases for P3D.
