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.

FLYTAMPA - AMSTERDAM V.2 P3D4-5
Morten
Great professionally work!! However texture work resulting in pretty close properties towards the P3Dv5 max.limit of 7.1 GB VRAM, with PMDG aircraft!
VIRTUALCOL - AIRBUS A220 SERIES PACK FSX/P3D
David
Using with FSX Steam and very dissatisfied! Only the A220-100 can be used. All of the A220-300s completely fail to display any part of the aircraft. Just audio. No VC, no internal or exterior views from any of the multiple available cameras! That said I’ll change my review if the developer answers me and provides a fix so I can use all of what I paid for. Other than that the A220-100s are very nice. Very simple planes for those times where you just want to fly a bit with as little headache as possible. Some aspects are well simulated and you get almost (based on above experience) what you pay for. First time I’ve had such a downer experience with a Virtualcol product. This is my 5th
PILOT'S FSG - LEAL - ALICANTE AIRPORT P3D
Dominik
Pretty expensive, but perfect!! The scenery looks very sharp, not at last because of the very detailed scenery around the airport. OK, it doesn't blend very well into ORBX Word/OLC EU, but I've got the impression that ORBX is "too green" this time, and Pilot's FSG got the colors right here. Maybe, if it was a little bit cheaper, more people would buy it and it would get the attention that it deserves for its high quality. For me, at least, it's one of the best sceneries that I've seen in recent times!
AUSCENE 2 - ADELAIDE INTERNATIONAL X V2.2 FSX P3D
Dominik
From the distance it looks good, as it blends well into ORBX AU, and the ground colors are OK. There's nothing "wrong" with the scenery such as bugs... but it's simply not really good. Textures look pretty artificial, there are no SODE gates, not even standard moving gates, and the jetways themselves really look very very outdated. And so do terminals. What's more: The AFCAD needed some editing, so that the airliners really appeared at the gates, and not at the GA parking spots. Yes, there is no other YPAD scenery out there for P3d, so it's OK. It's simple and flyable without a problem. But it's definitely one of the weaker AU sceneries, and certainly not the one I would choose in the first place, if it doesn't have to be exactly YPAD.
TBLFSCENERY - LFRI VENDEE-LES-AJONCS LA-ROCHE-SUR-YON MSFS
Markus
Good airport scenery that is well embedded into its surroundings, featuring good modelling and texturing for the buildings. I wish the white grass runway markings were done as polygons, since currently they are only rather blurry marks on the base photo.
FLIGHT REPLICAS - HS.125 DOMINIE T MK.1(2) P3D4.5-5 FSX
David
It’s nice to have older generation aircraft offered with such attention to detail. I’m using this with FSX Steam on Win 10 16GBram, i7, Intel UHD 630 integrated GPU. Everything looks and works great! It has unique flight dynamics compared to say a Lear 35 or other similar small jets. I particularly like the 3 cabin view options. This is a great plane. Just a heads up though, for FSX Steam users there are only generic thumbnails at aircraft selection, but the 3 different liveries are there and have no problems. Totally Steam compatible.
FSIMSTUDIOS - LONDON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT CYXU MSFS
Markus
CYXU by FSimStudios is mostly a well crafted add-on, good modelling and texturing on all structures, with nice detail even at remote parts of the airport. Howev-
er, what is unacceptable to me and is very much immersion-killi-
ng, is the fact that there is this ugly jagged border between the airfield ground texture and the surrounding default aerial imagery. This border is placed so well on short final on all sides that it is impossible to ignore it as it presents itself on every approach. A jagged line between brown and green is simply impossible to not see it, something that is obviously very unrealistic. T-
his scenery is the only one I own showing such a rough border, if it was indeed unavoidable then I wish they would have at least changed their aerial image from a dirt field to a grass field using image editing software, that way the jagged edge would have been less visible. This is rather unfortunate as the rest of the scenery is really well done.
INIBUILDS - INISIMULATIONS A300-600R(F) ON THE LINE X-PLANE 11
Yngve
This aircraft is a fantastic representation of the A300 in every way. Not only are the sounds and behavior of the GE or PW engines superb, but the systems and EFB as well. One of the great features in the EFB is the performance calculation tool, a great aid for any serious simmer. The fact that they also put in animated ground services is a big plus. Having been a simmer since the 90s, and having had the pleasure of trying all sorts of aircrafts from different developers throughout the years (ranging from the iconic Dreamfleet 737-400 and PSS A3XX-series to LeonardoSH, Majestic Software and PMDG amongst others), I can only say that this is at least in the top 3 category for me, if not the very best aircraft I have flown in any sim. Other developers should take note and realize its not clever to demand the same amount (or close to it) of money for an add-on aircraft that is less developed than The IniBuilds A300. Excellent job and please keep this level of quality for your next aircrafts!
MAJESTIC SOFTWARE - VISUAL EXTENSION PACKAGE FOR THE MJC8Q400 PILOT AND PRO EDITIONS P3D4-5
Scott
A fantastic addition to the already wonderful MJC8Q400. The cabin and lighting in particular look great, and the included windshield effects bring the aircraft forward to 2022 standards.
SALT LAKE SIMULATIONS - KSLC - SALT LAKE CITY INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Graham
Overall very good with the new improvement of all the buildings, taxiways, and satellite imagery. I give it four stars because the terminal buildings and all the buildings overall aren't very detailed for the price. This says that it will be updated with the progress of the actual airport. I hope to see greater airport detail in the future, along with the editions. But overall I am extremely happy someone made the terminal and did a pretty good job at it.
