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.

JUSTFLIGHT - SANTA PAULA AIRPORT KSZP MSFS
James
Its nice, one of the most detailed GA airports I've seen, after SU5 grass seems a little tall but overall a great place to fly to in SOCAL.

Quite impressed with this product, seems that each hangar is custom made and textures are crisp, much sharper than any other product I've seen so far. My new favorite place to fly from.
AFS-DESIGN - AIRWOLF V2 FSX
David
This is purely a nostalgia purchase for me. If you were a fan of the TV show then you may understand. However as far as flying is concerned there are some problems. First you have to turn all realism sliders to easy, turn off “engine stress causes damage” and deactivate crash and collision detection settings. Then you can fly this as intended. This thing violates physics in some hilarious ways. The controls in helicopter mode are heavy. It’s often like flying a brick. Push the throttle past 50% and the blades become variable geometry wings. It can max out around Mach 2 and climb to fl650 which is laughably impossible, but you have to suspend reality and accept the fantasy in order to enjoy flying this. Overall it’s not that great of a flight model and leaves a lot to be desired in terms of controllability-
. Also for some reason you have to load other cabin views as completely new aircraft. This makes no sense to me. Every other add on I own load once and then just cycle through cameras to get other internal views like the other seats, stations or passenger areas. Not here though, nope. You must stop everything, go to select aircraft, then select the other internal cabin view aircraft options and fly from there only. Meaning if you choose “Cabin” view you cannot switch camera to the VC or vice versa. Of all my many many add ons only AFS does this. So if you can forgive the fantasy of this physics defying chopper and get a warm feeling for the Airwolf TV show, then sure….buy it. If you’re looking for anything resembling a realistic experience, then move along or you’ll be terribly disappointed.

This is the design that I first saw as a toy when I was a child. It was responsible for getting me interested in helicopters at an early age. A nice chopper that is pretty agile, and a little challenging to master flying and hovering. Not bad not great but definitely worth the price. Fun to fly around the many roof top helipads in Los Angeles Cities X add on scenery.
FLYSIMWARE LLC - CESSNA 195-X 2012 FSX P3D
David
A real nice aircraft that didn’t really catch on as much as expected due to high operating costs. Thankfully we don’t worry about such things as simmers, and can enjoy this unique aircraft. It’s way faster than your average Cessna high wing. Cruises easily around 155kias under 10k feet. The model is indeed a bit behind Carenado standards, but not at all bad. The lighting is pretty good offering a nice ambience at night in the cabin. The flight model seems to be carefully designed making for enjoyable flights. I’ll take this over my 172 any day. I recommend picking up when on sale for sure. Only dinged it minus 1 star because it could’ve had more liveries

FSCGAA - AUSTRALIA-MARLA AIRPORT YALA P3D4-5
Georg
I want to add to my yesterday's lines: in the original P3D, YALA (Marla) is not included. However, after installation, you find it as YALA in the flight planner in usual way.
JUSTSIM - STUTTGART AIRPORT - X-PLANE-11
Jannik
Well made, I'd say. It looks beautiful and it is acurrate(im from STR). The only thing i have to mention is the Tupolew Tu-154, parked at the Cargo Terminal. It's missing. but otherwise genious Scenery! I'd totally recommend
AEROSOFT - AIRPORT STUTTGART XP X-PLANE 11
Jannik
I bought it fom an other store a few months ago, and I really dont like ist. i am from Stuttgart. The Ground textures are really worse, and there ist no 3d grass. The textures of the buildings are 144p. The aircraft museum on the top of the terminal is non-existant. It doesn't work with sam or autogate. I'd maybe recommend this for 5$, but not 22! If you want a tip from me: Get Justsim! It is really good.
