In 1929, the Great Lakes Aircraft Company (GLAC) was formed in Cleveland, Ohio at the former site of the Martin Aircraft Company. They built civilian biplanes, float planes, as well as biplane torpedo bombers under contract to the US Navy. The model that most people think of today when someone says, "Great Lakes aircraft," is the enduring 2T biplane; also known as the Great Lakes Sport Trainer. It was designed and sold as a two-place, open cockpit biplane. The first engines were an 85 hp (63 kW) American Cirrus Mk III. The 2T biplane was not as large as some of its contemporaries manufactured by Stearman, WACO and Travel Air.

The original models had a wing span of 26 feet 8 inches and length of 20 feet 4 inches. The useful load was 578 pounds (262kg) and it was stressed for 9 g positive and 6 G negative. It had outrigger landing gear with spring oleo shock struts, and the range was 375 miles. The sale price started out at $4,990 dollars but as the depression came it was lowered to $3,985. The first four Sport Trainers built were of a rare straight-wing design, one of which was modified into a special racer. Because of problems recovering from flat spins, the top wing was swept back and that is what most people recognize first when looking at a Sport Trainer. At its peak, Great Lakes had as many as 650 deposits for new aircraft. With the onset of the great depression, the Great Lakes Aircraft Company went out of business closing their doors in 1936. The company built just 264 of the Sport Trainers ordered.

That would not be the end of the story for this iconic golden age flier as its timeless design has inspired others to keep the dream alive in through modification and refinement almost continuously over the decades since the original factory closed its doors. So it has inspired Golden Age Simulations to bring the Great Lakes to FSX and Prepar3D.

All of our models feature:

  • Incredibly detailed model with full animations and completely clickable virtual cockpit
  • Fully detailed power plants
  • Seven high definition liveries with blank textures for creating your own designs
  • Two unique liveries per aircraft presented
  • Precise smooth 3D modeled gauges with backlighting (if so equipped with an electrical system)
  • High fidelity sound package unique to each model
  • Precise flight dynamics
  • Detailed user's manual
  • Bonus scenery (offered with option 1 or 4 only)

We offer the model in four different package options

1929 Great Lakes - "The Original"

The 1929 Great Lakes Cirrus Powered Sport Trainer including a bonus scenery "Phenick Field"
This the original Great Lakes designed as a sport trainer it is powered by the 90 hp American Cirrus. A low and slow flier it is ideal for cruising the virtual skies and a joy to fly. Having no electrical system it's a VFR flier and has no vices. Its paired with Phenick Field, a flight training academy which once exited near Newark Ohio. It's a perfect location to practice in the pattern and perform touch and goes. Test your skill by flying through barn a feat not for the faint of heart.

1930's -40's Great Lakes "Modified" Sport

The Menasco and Ranger in-line engine conversion series. This package introduces engine conversions done just prior to WW2 with the mating of the 125 hp Menasco C-4 Pirate to the Great Lakes airframe. You might have seen this bird had you been wandering around the American aviation scene in the late 1930s as it appears to have been a fairly popular conversion. The extra power provided by the Menasco delivers a modest increase in performance perhaps ten miles per hour more at the top end and six or seven at cruise, or a bit more if you want to burn more fuel. This engine/airframe combination is a very pleasant airplane to fly, and economical to boot.

The Fairchild Ranger 200 hp l- L-440-3 version would be a typical post- war conversions and returning service men had a desire to go fast and with the surplus Rangers available this combinations did just that. With only 26 gallons of gas available feeding this beast you wouldn't go far without refueling but you'd have a blast getting there. The first and most immediate is the increase in torque effect and P factor, both of which require our pilots to pay a bit more attention, especially on takeoff. At 144 mph, the top speed of this version will raise an eyebrow, but the real eye opener is the vertical performance.

1950's Great Lakes Sport Stunt Planes

The Great Lakes Sport Stunt Plane collection. This collection represents conversions that were popular in the 1950's up until the early 60's and utilized surplus 165 hp Kinner R56 5 cylinder radial engines used on the Ryan PT-22 and the 185 hp Warner Super Scarab which was arguably the most sought after power plant for the Great Lakes and, until the kit planes started mating the airframe with the Lycoming power plants, the image that came to mind when the Great lakes was mentioned up until as late as the 1970's. We've included liveries that honor both Betty Skelton and Hal Krier, air show performing icons of the day.

Great Lakes Sport Trainer Bundle

This option combines all models in one package and represents a 40% savings to the purchaser over the expense of buying each option separately. 5 aircraft with 2 liveries each plus bonus scenery "Phenick Field"

DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - SEATTLE CITY X FOR FSX P3D
tedias lim
Great city and one of the best sceneries I've had. I actually did worry about FPS but "believed" other reviewers and it is true that it performs better than the default scenery (P3Dv4), even with all those details added. Just as others I like the massive area too - you can fly a lot without ever leaving the scenery area. Very nice! There are tiny details everywhere and it looks and feels very realistic. The night lighting is gorgeous. I agree this is the best city package so far!
BDOAVIATION - KANSAI INTL AIRPORT FSX P3D FS2004
William Sheridan
Excellent airport scenery! I use this in FSX and I was very pleased to find very good frame rates and reasonable VAS usage in such a complex and detailed airport. Highly recommended!

DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - POLISH AIRPORTS VOL1 X (V4) FSX P3D
Aro Delahunty
A very nice airport package for a great price. Airports are very nicely done and the developer updates them regularly. I like the fact that large areas around airports are modeled, including some significant terrain features (and landmarks). Winter and night textures are good too. Building models are very good and ground markings very detailed. Frankly, each of these airports could have been a good separate product and in one package they are a great deal.
MK-STUDIOS - LANZAROTE P3D4
Simone Barnycky
What an amazing piece of art. Very nicely detailed airport. Finally high resolution island. I highly recommend this addon.
IMMERSIVE AUDIO - 737NG CFM IMMERSION SOUNDPACK HD FSX P3D
Christian Osbakk
Im a owner of both the cockpit and cfm audio packs and all I got to say is WOW - not just because of the immersive audio itself but the fact that this developer is a truly enthusiast who really takes the time to make perfection and to listen to his users. Im one of those picky customer who use a high end audio system for my flight simming aswell as for music and movies and I instantly had some feedback and contacted the developer and right after I written to him I got an answer and he got to work, improving his work of art - just to satisfy me as a customer. That is world class suport and heart that I think other developers should aim for! I cant wait for this devs next piece of art - he makes it even funnier to flight sim!! Thank you!
TROPICALSIM - SANTIAGO CIBAO MDST 2018 FSX P3D
Ricardo Ulerio
Stunning recreation of my local airport! This is a big upgrade from the last version by bringing in the 2 new Jetways, and surrounding facilities along with new scenery technologies...-
Good Job, TropicalSim!
SIMELITE SOLUTIONS - TIME ZONE FIXER FSX P3D
N A Redpath
Excellent bit of software. I've yet to find any time zones that do not match real world local time. Makes flying in P3D4 so much more realistic now that we can follow proper schedules and get the correct sunrises/sunset-
s. This is an essential fix for your flight sim - buy it.
PILOT'S - FS GLOBAL ULTIMATE - NEXT GENERATION FTX FSX P3D FSW
Phil Coombes
I can only repeat what I said out loud when first seeing Innsbruck through my VR headset after installing FS Global Ultimate...it was a simple 'WOW', because it really does what it says, it has enlivened P3dv4 to another level. Already having Pilot's latest Real Weather (thanks to some super customer support from Stefan), my flight sim world has become more accurate and so immersive. So easy to install, the best add-on you can buy right now, valleys open up, mountains soar high into the sky and cliffs, well, hang....but it's the in-between areas that are stunning. Instead of flat areas between peaks, there are now interesting higher spots, changing scenery from 2D to truly 3D. Well worth the money and a great product.... I'd recommend it without hesitation.....
