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.

DOUBLE T - EL DORADO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Andres
Nice to see this airport finally getting some love in MSFS, but it lacks detail (especially outside the main terminal). Maintanance, General Aviation and military complex are seriously lacking. Textures can also improve, and a better quality and up to date ground mesh wouldnt hurt. that said, this is way better than the stock airport if you fly here often. After all, this is priced at Orbx range and does not come even close to the same quality level... I will be happy to give a better rating if the developer gets incremental improvements rolled out, as this scenery has potential to really get up there quality-wise.

Propriano is a very nice little flying club to take off and have a tour of Corsica. The buildings are well modeled and it is pleasant to walk around.

While I really want to love this, because I love warbirds, and especially unique ones, this is currently leaving me very disappointed. I've tried to fly it twice, both times result in unrecoverable engine failure shortly after take-off. I go to the manual to see what I'm doing wrong, and the manual is ONLY in French. Next main issue, is for the asking price, 2D gauges are a no-go. Shoul-
d this receive some much needed further development, I'll happily give this another try, but until then, it's going to sit in the hangar and collect dust.

Looks like a nice aircraft inside & out. Documentation is easy to understand. -
I would have given it 4 to 5 stars, except there is no paint kit or plain white textures so that I can paint the aircraft in our VA livery. For this reason, I am only giving it a 2 star rating.

I dont know what else to say except I am completely "GODSMACKED". Unbelievably good job. Completely impressed. Great job! I cant wait for your next scenery projects, I will certainly purchase again and again. Sincerely, Dan
SIMWORKS STUDIOS - NIMITZ CLASS VOL.2 P3D4 P3D5
JEAN PIERRE
Finally an affordable price for this Nimitz series carriers simulation. Fully P3Dv5.3 compatible. No, the P3D simulator is not dead and the MSFS game is unable to provide such a simulation (not even the ship's wake).

Would be an instant buy, if the displayed MIG29 would be a MIG21 as in real life.
