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 FSX!

This version has been specifically designed for FSX and is not backward compatible with any other previous version of Flight Simulator.

UK2000 SCENERY - CARDIFF 2021 MSFS
M
Great product and great performance, don't think i ever got a UK2000 scenery that wasn't good.
DOMINICDESIGNTEAM - KAUS AUSTIN-BERGSTROM INTL AIRPORT MSFS

Outstanding! DominicDesignTe-
ams best work yet. There is a gate/jetway numbering mismatch at gate 32 (jetway shows 23), but I am sure that will be corrected quickly. Great work!
DOMINICDESIGNTEAM - KAUS AUSTIN-BERGSTROM INTL AIRPORT MSFS
Travis
A stunning rendition of KAUS, the amount of detail is amazing. Performance is great too! Dominic Design Team is up there with FlightBeam and ini Scene. Highly recommend.
DOMINICDESIGNTEAM - KAUS AUSTIN-BERGSTROM INTL AIRPORT MSFS
James
This is a beautiful rendition of my hometown (where I was born) airport. Thank you so much. Performance is good, beautiful scenery. You might consider a tiny adjustment to night lighting as it's pretty brightly lit up but a small thing if it's wrong at all (could be me). Otherwise, absolutely perfect!
NORTHERN SKY STUDIO - JUNEAU INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Darren
Scenery is very nice however its missing the very prominent curved/angled approach lights onto runway 8. This is a major feature at Juneau and the lights are essential for terrain clearance on approach to runway 8 so leaving these out is a pretty major omission hence the score of 4 not 5.
BORIS AUDIO WORKS - CIRRUS SR-22 SOUND SET - MSFS
Farhad
Fantastic! For pilots that precision is important in all aspects, that is indispensable. I hope the developers make the same sound change for other planes, especially passenger planes.
RKBRIDGER - FLORIDA WEST COAST BRIDGES MSFS
Mark
Another excellent bridge package from the author. With 66 bridges, the improved water masks and Tampa's container port getting cranes, this is a complete package. Highly recommended for anyone flying in southern Florida.
FSDG - BREMEN MSFS
Tobias
Wonderful Scenery. Best rendition of Bremen so far for me, good FPS, good modeling and textures, good details. I can recommend this Add-On.
RDPRESETS - EHRD ROTTERDAM V2 AIRPORT MSFS
Magnus
RDPresets did a good job on this one like their other sceneries. Got EHRD together with the PMDG 737 which is a great combi for many great flights. Great performance and night lighting, highly recommended.
SOUTH OAK CO - TRAFFIC IN SIGHT - CENTRAL USA MSFS
Chris
Above Denver Intl and Aspen, dozens of helicopters. It's too dense and random traffic. They are flying like flies. I'm waiting for the patch. Above New York with other traffic in sight addition traffic is perfect.
