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!

REVIEWS
There’s no doubt this is not a hardcore simulation of the real thing. It’s a little too easy to fly in trickier parts of the envelope to make that claim, with it being almost impossible to stall or spin for one thing. But that does not make it unworthy by any stretch of the imagination, quite the opposite in fact. There’s more than enough of a challenge to be had from flying the thing even in spite of the omission of the real aircraft’s trickier foibles.

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.....
MK-STUDIOS - TENERIFE VOL.1 FSX P3D
Simon Williams
Some airports create a special atmosphere and this one by MK-STUDIOS is no exception. Everything about it is finely detailed with the entire island modeled beautifully. The performance is great on frame rates for both day and night scenarios and is an absolute joy to fly into with high-end add on aircraft. Bravo! I am looking forward to future releases.
RFSCENERYBUILDING - LIPX VERONA VILLAFRANCA FSX P3D
Achmed Haag
Nice scenery, nice airport, but the same problem as their LIRQ: RW04 closed for takeoff - why ? Search youtube, you will find departure videos for RW04 even for bigger iron. ADE 1.75 solved the problem: edited RW04 pattern TAKEOFF=YES. B-
tw: inserted ATIS 124.125 (s. NOTAM B3610/18 NOTAMR B1425/18 : Trial in 2018). I wish, flightsim reviewers would do some takeoffs/landin-
gs under several wind conditions and not only look at the well made buildings (except instead of flying, they prefer to stay at the airport admiring the nice scenery or takeoff/approac-
h with tailwinds ;-)
MP DESIGN STUDIO - AEROSPATIALE GAZELLE SA342 FSX P3D
bertrand barbe
Long time user of helicopter in fsx,this product is one of the few that describe what a chopper feels like, and what a gazelle feels like and right out of the box, no extra needed. Superb flight handling, very extensive systems and behavior, the whole custom coded by a competent and kind team (support is excellent too). The price tag is unbelievably low for this kind of product.One of the two or three chopper really worth in FSX for people who want an taste of choppers.Can't wait to see what's next!
RFSCENERYBUILDING - LIRQ FLORENCE PERETOLA P3D4
Achmed Haag
Nice airport, nice environment, but no start/approach on RW05. A review in the english simmarket (thanks to jon moran) lead me to the solution: Th-
e Airport is defined with RW05 only landing and RW23 only start, but in P3D V4 the ATC let me only use RW23 for landing and start, even with wind 10kn from 40° , so I modified the BGL with ADE 1.75. And I added the missing ATIS (skyvector.com says 129.350).
BLUEPRINT - KSFO SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL FS2004
Carlos Castillo
Aesthetically, it's a B+, but it's probably the best up to date scenery available (flyTampa's concourse A is partially blocked from a now defunct concourse so parking is limited). However, as far as practicality, 3/5. I should not have to debug the scenery myself in order to get it to work just fine. If you're familiar with troubleshooting common scenery problems, it shouldn't be too big of a problem. The parallel runways run independently, meaning it does not come with the crosswind runway technique in place to operate both the 10s and 1s simultaneously, so be prepared to see a congested SFO if you do not know how to have both in operation. The runway links do not have a designator, so you may have to re-link it to where they have a designator (thankfully it is easy but annoying if unfamiliar with). Overa-
ll, 3.5/5, but because I managed to tweak it to my personal liking, I rate it 4/5.
FABIO MERLO - FLIGHTCONTROLREPLAY PROFESSIONAL EDITION FSX P3D
Mike Agosin
A nice start for P3Dv4, but falls WAY short of what FSRecorder could do for FSX in it's day: - Customization of cameras - Programmable camera switching in a recordings timeline (time-stamping)-
- A render feature up to 60 fps in a compressed, .WMV format A recording addon works much more efficiently when it's installed into the sim itself rather than a stand alone program. I understand the developer has V4 coming soon with a render feature. Hopefully additional features as well.
SIMELITE SOLUTIONS - TIME ZONE FIXER FSX P3D
Dan Downs
This is exactly what I was looking for to fix the problems P3Dv4 had with time zone offsets in Alaska and Hawaii. When I complain to LM they said sorry, but they used the standard 15 deg per hour offset for places that were not heavily populated (like no one every goes to Hawaii, right?). This fixes that and of course globally, and nothing else so no stuff running in the background messing with the simulator clock function. This is just bgl files that fix the problem, and they issue updates as required. Simple and effective.
PACIFIC ISLANDS SIMULATION - POSTCARD PUERTO VALLARTA P3D
Dan Downs
I got tired of Taxi2Gate to update their offering of MMPR and purchased this one because so far I've been pleased with every Pac Sim product. This one is no exception, just flew an AAL DFW-PRV route and was very pleased with the quality of the scenery both on and off airport. The only things keep this from being a top rated scenery is the lack of moving jetways at the appropriate gates, and the gate placement/numbe-
ring not being representative of the real world. I'll continue to add Pac Sim products to my sim world.
BDOAVIATION - KANSAI INTL AIRPORT FSX P3D FS2004
Dylan Charles
Been waiting for a good rendition of this airport for a while and to my surprise BDO released this very quietly. Well worth the wait and the money. Not disappointed at all and the performance is great for such a feature rich scenery.
