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.

DOMINICDESIGNTEAM - KIND INDIANAPOLIS INTL AIRPORT MSFS
Tony
As a resident of Indiana and been to this airport hundreds of times, use to ride my Harley around the perimeter road to watch planes, I will say the DDTeam did an awesome job on the terminal and a very good job on the surrounding area. It's not perfect but very close. Indy in MSFS definitely needed some love as it was one of the worse modeled major airports in the sim and is the world headquarters to FedEx so we needed this. I rate this product 9/10 and would def recommend the purchase of it. Looking forward to maybe an update and Looking forward to future offerings from the DDTeam. Thank you DDTeam for showing KIND some love! Good job!

Nice work from Author, for the price point I would have liked to see gate numbering on top of jetways as in real life to better find the gate.

Nice work on terminal and buildings, the design team could better align runways with ground polygon as you can see approach lights and runway lights a bit off and they did correct the taxi light issue quickly. DomincicDesign to earn a 5 star in my opinion needs to improve the detail of the ground textures (use of custom textures/colors away from MSFS default) to the level of other vendors at this price point.

Just like in real life, you don't get to choose where you will be flying. APL v2 did just that. Put you out of your comfort zone, try and survive until you have enough experience.

This app is very powerful. Initially it was a bit difficult to use. It gets easier after watching the youtube video tutorial and practice. In order to get the best angle, u need to familiarize yourself with the drone camera, no shortcut on these.

The scene may be good, but it is definitely not good with the price of 24eur. There are obvious material problems at the gate
