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.

BRAVOAIRSPACE - MDSD - LAS AMERICAS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT P3D4-5
John
A very nice rendition of MDSD. FPS is great and the airport buildings are well done, including the runway, taxiways and the surrounding area. I used to use this airport with FSX and it is good to be able to do the same in P3D. Thanks BravoAirSpace.

Amazing! Great models in and out. Could use a few more interior views and maybe a exit door (if there is such a thing?)and what not but still really good. Awesome inclusion of various variants with different behaviors. You can choose to fly with highly realistic engine coding or standard and simplified engine coding. The difference between the two is significant! Lots of baby sitting when using "realistic" engines. There are a few with a simple (no map) GPS and no A/P or the rest without the GPS but have an ancient version of an auto pilot or Gyro lock installed. The additional scenery is kinda Blah but appreciated. It runs very nicely on my FSX Steam Ed. running on a Win10 I7 8th gen 3.2ghz 16GB RAM UHD 630 integrated GPU, with generally high graphics settings. i havent needed any dedicated gpu for anything even when a 1gb card is a "required minimum' to date for any of my add ons, and i have a lot without being burned so far.

100% recommended. This is the best low/slow aircraft available for MSFS2020, allowing you to really admire the scenery. Excellent handflying characteristics and a good stable platform once you trim it out. The author is constantly improving the product and is responsive on the MSFS2020 forums to questions and feedback. In short: Get it, you won't regret it!

Visibility is amazing with the bubble doors and even better with the doors off version. Low and slow is the way to go in MSFS 2020 to enjoy the scenery and this bird will get you in and out of any airstrip or gravel bar. Beautiful and works just perfect. Another reviewer said the nosewheel doesn't turn while taxiing, it does when moving.

This applications save me from the disappointment of not being able to use the B787 Dreamliner. I recently upgrade my Standard MSFS2020 to Premium Deluxe just so I wanted to try this new airliner. I read in the forums that there is a known issue with the B787 but I never thought that it almost ruined my experience and my faith I had on ASOBO. The aircraft won't do a tight turn. If you did, its stop and won't move at all. So you have to figure out how to make it move again. If you an experienced and long time player you just know what to do. Also if you put too much fuel or too much payload. The aircraft will start to bounce when you start taxiing it on the runaway. This apps save the rage in me because it can assign steering tiller and make you steer the aircraft easily and responsively.
