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.

AEROSOFT - AEROSOFT AIRCRAFT CRJ 550/700 MSFS
Wayne
I bought the Aerosoft CRJ from Simmarket, I am very very happy with my purchase. The CRJ is an excellent beginner in the Airliner world for Microsoft Flight Simulator. My advise to those who are expecting this aircraft to fly like any other airline out there, it won't! It's not dependant on auto throttle meaning that you will be managing the throttle on your own so if you are up for a challenge then this aircraft is a MUST!
ILLUMINATORS - FBW - PHYSICS MSFS
James
I thoroughly recommend this product. This software eliminates the frustratingly jerky and over-sensitive rudder present in the A320. This important if your rudder is attached to the joystick as many are. The dynamics are more stable. The flying experience is not only far more realistic but far more enjoyable. You will not be disappointed.

Badly. There is no ILS RWY 22. for ILS RWY 04 only the LOC works, APP not work. The markings disappear on taxiways.

Great Scenery! An excellent airport and a very worthy addition for New Zealand flying.
ISLAND CREATIONS - FUERTEVENTURA AERIAL IMAGERY MSFS
Paul
Excellent product! Fuerteventura is tranformed in certain areas, especially along the coast near Corralejo, where the downtown areas are crisp and are a joy to fly over. There is an overall sense of coherency with this product, with no deviation in color and hue. And the absence of green roads makes this add-on worth the price alone. With that said, there are areas where the resolution should be higher, but overall it's an excellent add-on and improves the scenery considerably. The autogen objects also populate nicely on the terrain, and the default digital elevation model just seems to conform better with this ortho. Based on my experience with this product, I'll be purchasing the Lanzarote product because I love flying over the Canary Islands. Great work, Island Creations! Please offer a new Ortho for La Palma!
FLYTAMPA - LASVEGAS MSFS
Jeremy
I love flying in and out of this airport. Definitely one of my favorites in the entire sim. Bought it from their store when it first came out. One thing they should focus on is optimizing the airport's performance more maybe easy up on the animated terminals in a sim that is single threaded limited and surrounded with photogrammetry. The city area runs flawless and looks great at night.

Nice addition to the PMDG 777. It was worth the wait for sure.
SOUTH OAK CO - LANAI HAWAII MSFS
Chuck
I love flying between airports in the Hawaiian islands so I was thrilled to see another nicely modeled Hawaii airport for MSFS! The only knock I have on this airport is that none of the airport terminal interiors are modeled. However, there are some static people and animated passengers outside the buildings to add some life to the airport area. There's also plenty of cars in the parking areas as well as baggage carts and other items lying around which give the airport that used look and feel. The PBR textures and materials are nicely done. The attention to detail such as signs, fuel tanks, etc. adds to the immersion. All this detail and no noticeable hit to my framerates is a bonus! Well done!
