GOLDEN AGE SIMULATIONS CLASSIC WACO COLLECTION FS9/FSX

Golden Age Simulations is proud to present, to the flight simulator community, our Classic WACO Collection.

This offering is modeled around the venerable WACO Model 10. With over 11,000 aircraft manufactured, the Model 10 put WACO on the map of the Golden Age. It made WACO a household name that has endured throughout the ages. Our package includes four aircraft and is essentially a journey through the evolution of the ’10.

Start by stepping into the OXX 6 powered Model 10. Water cooled, the radiator hangs above the pilot and passenger. Better keep your cool! Many passengers and pilots came home wet when the radiator boiled over.

Next in the package is the, little known, Milwaukee Parts Company (Tank Brothers) conversion, essentially an air cooled version of the Model 10. This version of the three seat Waco Ten was the standard airplane modified by replacing the less than perfect Curtiss OX-5/OXX-6 series engine with the air cooled version of the OX-5 produced by the Milwaukee Parts Company. It was designated the GXE

The ASO brings you through the thirties and to the modern age. Known variously as the Waco Sport Ten, the Ten W, the Waco 220, and eventually the ASO, this model appeared in June, 1927 when the Advance Aircraft Company mated their basic Waco Ten airframe with the fabulous 220 hp Wright J5 engine. The increase in power resulted in spectacular performance, and over 90 examples were built before it was succeeded by the later CSO, which was basically the same airframe with the new 225 hp Wright J6-7.

Your journey continues with the CTO-R, the Model 10 for this century. Fully equipped and sporting the Jacobs R-755 engine. This is the ultimate sportsman’s craft. She’s slick and fast and a joy for any pilot who is willing to take her to the edge.

Designed specifically for FS9, our model is fully compatible with FSX and tested in SP2. The package contains installers for both simulators and great care has been taken to develop FSX specific textures help mitigate issues* with autogen and clouds.

*At certain autogen settings and in certain views, there is autogen interference with prop textures. This is a known issue with all FSX compatible (non-native) models. This model is not compatible with DirectX 10 and designed to be flow exclusively from the VC cockpit.

Very nice bunch of classic biplanes to fly. Superb radial engine sound, superb exhaust flames, nice flight characteristics and attention to detail look. I love to fly around a visited airport I just landed in airliner or modern plane. Next flight I usually jump-in into old-school Golden Age bi-plane and visit neighbourhoods of certain airport or nearby downtown. :)

OK - so the VC's are a little basic by other addon standards but Golden Age somehow manage to capture - as the name says - the golden age of aviating.

In fact no one seems to do biplanes to this standard with pleasing flight charateristics that make you either sit back and enjoy the scenery from an open cockpit - or do some plesant aerobatics.

I still beleive that the Just Flight Tigermoth is still the best biplane available - but for value and feel of flight - this package comes in very close.

Finally thank you for taking the time and effort for making a highly detailed scenery for Myanmar. If you could also do Mandalay that would be a great plus too thank you!
TURBINE SOUND STUDIOS - PIPER CUB CONTINENTAL 65 SOUNDPACK FSX
Allan
This is a well-crafted array of the sounds that the (very) old Continental 65hp engine - mounted in any number of very old airplanes from the era before or during World War II. That includes the old Piper J-3 Cub, of course, but also many Taylorcraft planes of the era, especially including the L-4 Grasshopper, which was manufactured more by Taylorcraft than by Piper, and the BC-12D, the side-by-side 2 passenger aircraft of the same period. For anybody who learned to fly on these very economical airplanes in the sixties or even seventies, the MSFS simulations of these old aircraft are far more evocative of the actual feel of these planes with the authentic sounds, than without. To feel that the Cessna 152 engine is close enough is to miss the whole experience - of Ceconite-covere-
d wings, tenuous, unreliable engines with nowhere-nearly--
enough power (that's why we called them "gutless wonders". In the simulations of the J3 and the L4, they have the wire-stuck-in-a-
-cork-float fuel gauge, extending up through the hole drilled through the gas cap (about 6 inches in front of the canopy glass). Once you hear the sounds, you will understand what an iffy proposition is was to fly these old aircraft, and why all of us who did are very fortunate if we are alive still today. Thank-
s, SimMarket, for putting these sounds together for us. It must have been fun!

I do not mind airport interior modelling, in fact I like it quite a bit IF it can be seen when being out at parked aircraft. This scenery however has put way too much emphasis on the interior while neglecting the rest of the airport. The main terminal building is superb, no question about it. However, detail elsewhere is rather scarce and sterile looking in places, and there are plenty of flat objects visible on the aerial imagery all around the airport. Modelling capacity should have been used there instead of areas inside the terminal building invisible from parked aircraft. Also I wish developers would stop doing these low-quality red markings on aprons which are extremely oversaturated to a point where they look sterile and artificial. -
3 solid stars for the good modelling effort on the terminal! Though I want to point out that the rest of the airport is important too.

Great sounds and flight model, and the detailing is phenomenal. The Merlin engine looks amazing when you remove the cover and the EFB is a nice touch as well.

Excellent aircraft, especially love the liveries they all look fantastic. Highly recommend this addon if you are into the old warbirds, cool features like removing the cowling and gun bay covers shows a lot of time was put into this plane. Great job iniBuilds!

The airport itself, the textures and even the brand new expansion area are all stunning! AI traffic is working fine, except a few ground vehicles going into the runways. For now, 1 missing star for the following reasons: - Various objects here and there are missing (fences in various parts of the airport, rocks around coasts, little bushes implementation, ILS antennas, Glidescopes, radars, guard lights,...); i also did notice a few buildings type were missing too; - The tire marking does need a little fixing too in some areas, especially at the beginning of the runways; - Overall performances are good around the entire airport, but things are not well optimized only when going closer to the main terminal (the issue could be caused by the animated train inside, or some of the jetways); - Jetways for the Emiri terminal are missing; - A Doha skyline implementation would be appreciated as well! I will change my stars rating to 5/5 if any of this is going to be fixed/improved. Btw, i will say it again. Congratulations-
, nice work! Looking forward for an update! :)

Plane looks and sounds good. Behaves well during taxiing, take off, flight and landing. I did find this plane a joy to fly and recommend it.
