Special Edition Me-262a

Discover what made the famous Messerschmitt Me-262a Schwalbe the legend it is. A reworking of the previously released Flight Replicas' Me-262s, this new Special Edition features possibly the most authentic aerodynamics ever done for this iconic WWII fighter, painstakingly researched and written by FSX aerodynamics master Bernt Stolle. From managing the difficult early jet engines, to combat maneuvering at high speed, to getting back on the ground safely, you will come to know both the challenges and joys that were those of the real Me-262a pilots.

Not an easy aircraft to fly, this Me-262a will 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-262.

Included free: An entire USAAF B-17G Flying Fortress Combat Box, to scale, with almost 40 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"), to fully enable you to experience what it took to get the Me-262 into a firing pass, for example, and discover the pro's and con's of flying such a high speed aircraft against slower machines. Experience the new aerodynamics to their absolute fullest.

(Please note: While much of the physical model in this release is unchanged from the previously released Flight Repicas Me-262 models (which is what has prompted the lower than normal price), this new Special Edition nonetheless features many new VC upgrades in order to enhance realism even further and maximize your immersion, plus new high resolution textures throughout.)

History:

The Messerschmitt Me-262 Schwalbe (German for "Swallow") saw action from late summer of 1944 until the end of the war, sharing the title of first operational jet fighter with the British Gloster Meteor.

The Me-262 began life in 1938, when Willy Messerschmitt was called upon to design a new fighter to be powered by two gas turbine engines. The configuration eventually chosen featured a sleek streamlined fuselage with the two podded engines carried beneath a low-mounted wing. Although the first airframe was ready to fly by 1941, the B.M.W. engines were suffering prolonged development delays, which slowed the project significantly.

Developed steadily over the next two years, and using the famously unreliable Jumo 004 engines, the Luftwaffe began committing the Me 262A-1a to combat in mid-1944 when they were pitted against the streams of heavy bombers making daily raids on German cities and military targets. Despite being well-armed with highly effective 30-mm cannons and air-to-air rockets, the remarkable Me-262 was simply too little, too late, to turn the tide of war in Germany's favor. Maintaining production was difficult due to Allied attacks on industrial centers, many aircraft being destroyed on the ground before they could ever fly.

Some 1,430 total aircraft were built, though only about 300 ever saw combat. Some 120 two-seat trainers were built, made by modifying the single seat airframe. The Me-262, although a spectacular aircraft for its time, had a negligible impact on the course of the war, shooting down an estimated 150 Allied aircraft for the loss of 100 Me 262s, the majority of aircraft being grounded too often for lack of fuel.

SKY FLYER HANGAR - DIGITAL RUSSIA FAR EASTERN FEDERAL DISTRICT P3D
Михаил Копасов
Look forward uploading Russian Far East,because I was born and grown up there.
AEROSOFT - CATALINA X FSX P3D
Ken Gallant
This still holds up in 2019. It's getting 4 stars because there is a bug with the ADF/DME panels on the civilian post war models. There is a fix in the forums, but it should be in the installer by now as it was discovered years ago at this point. Other than that, I'm very impressed with this aircraft. The civilian post war version has no autopilot, but it's not much of an issue once you have it trimmed out. It's slow enough that if you step away for a few minutes it won't have drifted too far off course. Handles magnificently provided you keep an eye on the engine/oil/carb-
uretor temperatures. Cockpit looks good and sounds good. I recommend this PBY unless you're in a hurry to get somewhere.
FLIGHT SIMULATOR INNOVATIVE ADDONS - FLIGHT SIM FIRST OFFICER - QW 787
Tyrone Headlam
Been using the universal FSIA - FLIGHT SIMULATOR FIRST OFFICER LITE EDITION for the Qualitywings 787 but this edition brings more immersion in the virtual cabin from start to finish.
CLASSICS HANGAR - MESSERSCHMITT BF 108 B TAIFUN
William Sheridan
This is an excellent reproduction of this old aircraft. Its systems (some quite unique and quirky!) have been very well replicated and indeed, in terms of systems depth, it is up there with the best available for FSX. Great fun to fly and very immersive - highly recommended!

REALWORLD SCENERY - 3D PATK TALKEETNA ALASKA FSX P3D
Marco Gabbrielli
get lost in the Alaska wilderness, through this little hub, which offers two landing spots, with very good detail and photorealistic immersion (working well on p3dv4.5) wit-
h an AI traffic utility, the main airport has a lot of activity fin-
ally, get a bush plane and start to explore the Denali glaciers, as an air taxi pilot, what a fun good job, and thanks
RFSCENERYBUILDING - LIPZ VENICE MARCO POLO AIRPORT FSX P3D
Ken McVie
I agree with the earlier reviews about the lack of moving jetways. This spoils an otherwise great version of VCE and one which works beautifully in P3D v.4
PREALSOFT - CASABLANCA AIRPORT GMMN - P3DV4
Ken McVie
This is a beautifully modelled, and up to date, version of Casablanca GMMN. The airport detail (air & land side) is stunning and the gates are fuly operartional with SODE. No frame rate impact and the airport works beautifully on my P3Dv4. My only reason for not giving the full 5* is due to the complete lack of any Casablanca city detailing. The old FS2004 Aerosoft Casablanca airport product of long, long ago included detailed landmarks of the city such as the Hassan II Mosque and sea port. This product has no city detailing at all which is a real shame - especially when taking off from the westerly runways.
