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!

INDIAFOXTECHO - F-35 LIGHTNING II MSFS
Sean
Best fighter jet in MSFS. The VTOL is really fun to use.
DOMINICDESIGNTEAM - LIMA AIRPORT MSFS

Needs urgent recoding as runways have changed from 15/33 to 16/34. This causes Flight simulator 2020 to display double runway, one above the other causing texture clipping.
RHDSIM - A320 FOR X-PLANE 11
Winlove
This aircraft is very good for it's price but there are a few downsides. 1.) Nosewheel steering physics are very weird 2.) You can't do a 3nm approach (Unless you manually set the speed of course) 3.) Idk if it's only me but the flight control tab on the Ecam doesn't work. I would still certainly recommend this aircraft for people who are on a budget.
ROLAND LABORIE - CL415 MSFS
Joe
Great airplane! The one thing I don't like is the water drop effect. There is a great mod on flightsim.to that makes it better. Aside from that its a great plane!
PKSIM - BOGOTA SKBO P3D4 P3D5
Alexandro
Too bad. Invisible objects, taxi outside taxiways, traffic control does not direct to the gates, a mess in the terminals. Aircraft passing through buildings and colliding with each other. The look is good, well done, but impossible to simulate. These developers should test scenarios before selling. I regret buying.

Very nice Caribbean airport very well modeled with a great price!
INDIAFOXTECHO - F-35 LIGHTNING II MSFS

This is definitely not 'plug and play'! you have to do some additional work to make it fully working, specially the "hover" part. The included PDF instructions its complicated at best. There is a bit of information here and there in the internet, but if you are looking for support to help you, Good luck!! You on your own. Otherwise its a great plane it fully uses all of MSFS assets and capabilities, its a pleasure to fly and it does hover to land although its a learning curve. This has become my main VSTOL and VTOL plane.
TECHNOBRAIN - FS ADD-ON COLLECTION NEW ISHIGAKI AIRPORT/MIYAKO AIRPORT FSX P3D
Daniel
Well that´s an old piece of scenery and although it should meet P3D5 requirements it does not at all. The exclusions don´t work and need to be reworked and the ground satellite image looks blurry. Even the runway does not cover the sat-image runway perfectly and a white stripe peers from the background. So even at the sale price, I can not recommend it.
