The Boeing Model 40 was a United States mail plane that became the first aircraft built by the Boeing Company to carry passengers. The Model 40 was designed to replace the military surplus de Havillands that had carried the airmail since 1918. Including the first Model 40, 77 Model 40s were built between 1925 and 1932. Its success was instrumental in establishing Boeing as a leader in aviation development and manufacturing.

On February 2, 2008, 80 years after the first Model 40C was delivered, the only airworthy restoration rolled out of the hangars of Pemberton and Sons Aviation in Spokane, Washington. The restoration was the culmination of 9 years work by over 61 volunteers spending approximately 18,000 hours bringing this magnificent aircraft to life.

One year later Golden Age Simulations rolls out our simulation of this great plane for Flight Simulator. Our package presents both the Model 40 C and B-4. The model C is presented in the livery of Pacific Air Transport matching that of the restored aircraft 5339, powered by the Pratt and Whitney Wasp with a constant speed propeller. The B-4 is dressed out in both the livery of United Airlines and Western Air Express and is powered by the Pratt and Whitney Hornet.

Great care has been taken to create as accurate representation of each aircraft as is possible. In the case the C, Addison Pemberton provided input on the cockpit layout and provided a pirep of the handling characteristics of his aircraft. His input was factored into the flight dynamics of the model. The flight dynamics of the B-4 have also been thoroughly researched as well. The model is fully animated and designed to be flown from the VC. Detailed check lists and reference files are included in each aircraft’s kneeboard that represents actual aircraft operations.

The sound files for each aircraft are the work of Flight Simulator sound designer, Mike Hambley. His sound art truly brings these beautiful recreations to life and further adds to the immersive experience of flying these giants of the Golden Age skies

Included in the package is scenery offering, by FSRealscenes.com, of Alhambra Airport, Alhambra, Ca, circa 1930. This airport was the home of the Western Air Express fleet and a hub for mail and passenger traffic during that era.

So, relive the early days of passenger flight, flying the airmail routes of the golden age of aviation with Golden Age Simulation’s Boeing Model 40 for FS 2004!

MOKUI - PASI SITKA AIRPORT - MSFS
Johannes
worth every penny, its a nice addition for the Alaska Airlines Milkrun flights. features detailed buildings and also bridges and boats.
SOUTH OAK CO - FS BIRDS - NORTHEAST USA MSFS
Bob
I bought MS2020 when it was released and was blown away by the realism of the sim, especially the scenery. Since I purchased it, I have tried to increase the overall experience by adding airports, REX seasons and weather, a virtual airline (Cape Air), as well as FS Realistic in order to emulate the addition of passengers during flight. My latest add if this excellent product by South Oak that interjects birds into the simulation. It's so neat to be taxing out of KBOS and to encounter a flock of pigeons on the tarmac, or a group of geese flying overhead upon takeoff. Wha-
t I like about the program is that the bird sightings are random, just like in real life. Some flights you may have one sighting, other times many. Another thing I like is you can tailor your purchase to the area(s) where you do most of your flying. It's not a "one size fits all" product, and you can buy as few or as many of the regions offered as you want. Great job, South Oak. You have hit the ball out of the park with this one!
INDIAFOXTECHO - F-35 LIGHTNING II MSFS
John
Excellent detailed modeling. I know some still have CTDs (I've never had any), and other issues, but they continue to improve it, and the flight model/trim issues seem to be sorted. One of the best developers in MSFS, and this has become one of my favorites to fly.
AC SCENERY - CITY3D BANGKOK P3D4-5
Cho
I've had AC Bangkok since it came out. The most recent update fixed issues with black autogens. As I have couple of its products, I can say, it's very friendly with the FPS. I just wish the edges of their sceneries would blend in with the Orbx colors. So far the edges aren't very subtle.

FLY 2 HIGH - RJFK - KAGOSHIMA AIRPORT MSFS
Olivier
Very good airport scenery The airport itself is an interesting choice with many flights around Much progress from this team lately Give me more animations, more immersion and it will be five stars
TABURET - FREE FLIGHT TRAFFIC GLOBAL MSFS
Jan
Indeed a good Taburet product and in my opinion a must have! I am very happy I bought it and even more that it covers the whole globe! The free flight traffic is an excellent addition, not too much or annoying. It really adds extra immersion. T-
he small black squares on the VFR map are very small and you have to zoom in to see them. This is a good thing, because they do not interfere wih the map and if you still want to know where you can find the free flight traffic, you simply zoom in.
MAILSOFT GMBH FLYLOGIC - WANGEN-LACHEN LSPV & LSPW MSFS
Markus
A job well done for this small Swiss airfield. Runway and apron markings are accurate, the buildings are textured nicely and crisp, and important infrastructure such as the landing-T or the VASI approach aid are authentic and functional. Th-
e harbour area is fairly detailed, making this a challenging approach due to the close location to the runway, and the latter being rather short. This version of Wangen Lachen airfield is clearly superior compared to a competing offer, and I would recommend this to anyone wanting to do VFR flying in Switzerland. F-
lyLogic proves that they can do very nice and detailed work if it's not a port from old P3D sceneries, like with some previous offerings. This one is new and it shows well! One thing negative though: The seaplane base, advertised as being part of the scenery, is not immersive at all. It's just a small hangar placed at the lakeside. No work has been done to anything surrounding that hangar, no details added, it's default aerial imagery and low-res autogen trees only.
UK2000 SCENERY - FLAGSTAFF AIRPORT MSFS
Markus
A job very well done by UK2000. Nice texturing with accurate colours all over the place, detail and 3D everywhere, a meaningful amount of airport-specifi-
c static aircraft, this all adds nicely to the immersion factor. You have open hangars, closed hangers, filled ones, empty ones, the airport feels busy and gives you plenty of places to park your GA aircraft surrounded by detailed modelling. The airport also integrates very well into its surroundings. -
I only wish the rather enormous VOR station right next to the airport would have been modelled as well. It's not understandable how such a large structure can be omitted when it is an integral part of this small airport. So the VOR was left as is, meaning a crude blurb of polygons due to photogrammetry, or all flat if you have turned photogrammetry off. Adding a detailed 3D VOR structure would add a lot of immersion to the place, a shame UK2000 chose to cut corners here. Still, I highly recommend getting this airport located in a scenic area, a great place for some GA flying!
VERTICALSIM - KBOI - BOISE AIR TERMINAL/GWN FIELD MSFS
Markus
This scenery is extremely well done in some parts, and then lacking any detail in others, which is unfortunate, since what is there and modelled usually is of high quality. with great and lifelike textures. Howe-
ver, the airport has got missing buildings and ground equipment all over the place, meaning you see flat houses, trucks and industrial buildings everywhere. Between some taxiways, next to the runway and aprons, and in the immediate surroundings of the airport. And these are vast areas where things are all flat and thus clearly visible when flying to and from the airport. It's a bit of a shame. The developer clearly shows talent, but leaving so many areas completely flat tells me development was kind of rushed, which in turn hampers immersion quite a lot.
