Discover what made the famous rocket-powered Messerschmitt Me-163B the extraordinary flying machine it was. This package features possibly the most authentic aerodynamics ever done for this iconic WWII fighter, painstakingly researched and written by FSX aerodynamics master Bernt Stolle, whose own father flew the Me-163B in WWII - and thus this was a very special project. From mastering the art of taking off in an aircraft with a very narrow (and jettisonable) undercarriage, to combat maneuvering at high speed among the bomber formations, to flying back to your airfield and landing the aircraft in gilder form once the engine fuel is used up, you will come to know both the challenges and joys that were those of the real Me-163B pilots.

Although the Me-163B was known for its nice in-flight handling characteristics, this Me-163B will none the less be a challenge for experienced pilots, or for those seeking to expand their skill range. Discover why only the best of the best were allowed to fly the Me-163B Komet - including those with exceptional glider skills.

Experience the Me-163B aerodynamics to their absolute fullest.

Included free:

  1. An entire USAAF B-17G Flying Fortress bomber formation, to scale, with 162 accurately scaled low poly aircraft (flying via a single set of air files), which can be flown as AI or by using freeware programs (such as the excellent FormationSetup, available here), to fully enable you to experience the spectacle and scale of these formations plus what it took to get the Komet into a firing pass, for example, and discover the high skills required of flying such a high speed aircraft against slower machines.
  2. An accurately scaled, low poly, Messerschmitt Bf-110G tow plane, to take you up to altitude on unpowered training flights (instructions for use included).

History: 

The Messerschmitt Me-163B saw action from May 1944 until the end of the war, and so far has been the only rocket-powered fighter to ever have been operational.

Designed by Alexander Lippisch, a pioneer in the field of aerodynamics and especially 'flying wing' designs, the first flight of the revolutionary Me-163A was in 1941, and soon established a new speed record of 1104.5 km/h (624.2 mph). However, the revolutionary design meant a lengthy development period, and the Komet only became operational in mid-1944. The rocket engine would remain a temperamental (and often dangerous) element of the design, but the extraordinary performance of the Me-163B would give it an unrivalled speed advantage over any contemporary piston fighter for the rest of the War. The fastest-ever recorded speed of the Me-163B was 1,130 km/h (702 mph), a speed which would not be exceeded until 1953, by a Hawker Hunter.

Information is not that clear, but some 400 Komet's were built, with 279 seeing operational service. Their actual effectiveness, due to late-war production and fuel-supply difficulties, was limited, and in the end the 163 was only responsible for (depending on the source) between 9 and 16 kills in total (for the loss of some 6 Me-163's due to enemy action plus another 9 to accidents ).

Customer Reviews
AFLOSIM - CLUJ-NAPOCA AIRPORT FSX P3D
Keith
Stunning little airport! Lots of detail and ground clutter, dirty apron; animated vehicles, birds, people, windsock, etc. The winter ice and snow effects with optional snow piles is excellent. Best feature of all is something I've never seen before in FS - the optional rainbow! (as with some of these things, can be turned on or off via the configurator). Night lighting good. Highly recommended.
BDOAVIATION - LAMEZIA TERME LICA FSX P3D
Jose
Beautiful airport, but there's an issue with the afcad. AI airplanes park where the nice static planes were placed. So you have AI on top of the static. The photo scenery is nicely done, but it doesn't play well with the freeware Italian scenery package. It does blend well with ORBX/LC/Vectors-
. You can disable some of the photo included, but god luck finding the .bgl files. They have unusual names and you will have to go through one by one. There's also a slight performance hit when viewing the terminal. Ha-
ving said all that, I think it's a beautiful looking airport even though a bit over priced even when it's on sale. Lastly I contacted support and did not receive a prompt response. If they fix the afcad, I'll revise my review.

Highly recommended for those who still fly in FSX just waiting for MSF2020. The airport and scenery around, are excellent. It really does challenge your skills as pilot, it is probably one of the most difficult approaches and landings in the world.
FSOARES - SANTAREM AIRPORT - SBSN - FSX P3DV3 P3DV4
Markus
What a beautiful little scenery this is, very well done! It features detailed modelling and crisp texturing throughout, with highly realistic looking textures. And the beauty of it, this is the case in ALL areas of the airport, from the fire station to the maintenance hangars, no area is overlooked. Adding to that, the airport is integrated flawlessly into ORBX OpenLC SA. Perfectly animated and functional SODE windsocks complement the scenery, as well as realistic looking runway lights. I've sent two suggestions for improvement to the developer, who instantly replied and agreed, taking notes for the next update. This is excellent support.
JUSTFLIGHT - PA-28-161 WARRIOR FSX
Austen
Accurate simulation of a real Piper Warrior. The aircraft model is outstanding. Having flown the actual aircraft, all the functionality is there. Even the engine sounds like the real deal. Would definitely recommend this product for anyone training on this aircraft as you are able to go through the entire real world checklist and practice stalls/emergenc-
y procedures.
FLYFREESTD - SUKHOI SU-27/27UB FLANKER-B/C FSX
Austen
Finally a Flanker that is worth purchasing! -
I've been searching for a SU-27 for FSX for a while now and have finally found a quality one. Both external and interior models are very well done. The external model has that shiny look that comes with quality models. The interior seems to be a fairly accurate representation of the real world cockpit. All the instruments and switches are in the correct Russian. My only complaint is that not all the switches are interactive, but nevertheless all the important ones are. The avionics reflect the 1980s design of this aircraft, so don't expect to navigate using modern tech. Basic nav and autopilot functions are all there along with a simple waypoint pointer. Flying the SU-27 is a welcome change compared to the typical western fighter. Can confirm you are able to perform the cobra maneuver, but make sure to turn off the AoA limiter. Ove-
rall, I would highly recommend checking this product out if you are looking for a SU-27.

SCENERYTR - LTAC ANKARA ESENBOĞA AIRPORT FSX/P3DV4
Jens
I have been to Esenboga many times, and it looks very realistic. I am very impressed, and the performance is great too. That the Ataturk museum, which is located in the city south of the airport and visible when approaching to the north, is a great detail. Fantastic value. Thanks a lot.
