The Dolphin originated in 1930 as the "Sinbad," a pure flying boat without wheels. The Sinbad was intended as a luxurious flying yacht. The Great Depression had curtailed demand for such extravagance, but Douglas managed to interest the United States Coast Guard who not only bought the Sinbad, but 12 Dolphins. Undaunted by the lack of demand, Douglas improved the Sinbad in 1931 so that it was amphibious, and could land on water or land. The improved aircraft was named "Dolphin".

There were a total of 58 aircraft over the life of its production run. The first two were purchased by Wilmington-Catalina Airlines to fly passengers between Los Angeles and Santa Catalina Island, becoming the first successful Douglas airliners. Subsequent examples were ordered by the United States Navy and US Coast Guard for use as transports and search and rescue craft. The U.S. Army Air Corps ordered several under the designations C-21, C-26, and C-29. Many were eventually ordered for their original purpose as luxury transports. Owners included William Boeing, the founder of the Boeing Company, and Philip K. Wrigley, the son of the founder of the William Wrigley Jr Company. William K. Vanderbilt bought two with custom interiors for use from the Vanderbilt yacht Alva as flying tenders.

Golden Age Simulations has re-created these magnificent aircraft for Microsoft’s Flight Simulator X. Our aircraft is intended to be representative of the line of Dolphins and not of any one model or owner. The goal was to provide a historically accurate representation of these Golden Age seaplanes as well as an enjoyable experience for the simulator pilot.

The package contains three distinct versions of the aircraft with a total of 8 unique and historically accurate liveries. There the commercial version most notably flown by the Wilmington-Catalina Airlines; the military version, the most produced by Douglas, and the personal luxury transport as flown by William K. Vanderbilt and Bill Boeing.

Also included is a custom scenery package that brings back to life the original Catalina Seaplane airport on Santa Catalina Island. In 1931, Philip Wrigley helped design the unique airport at Hamilton Cove, the second cove north of Avalon. This airport was designed to accommodate the Douglas Dolphin amphibian planes of the Wilmington-Catalina Air Line, Ltd., a Wrigley-operated firm. This airport was in continual use until 1941 when WW II brought an end to seaplane operations to Catalina Island. Our presentation is an accurate representation of that facility complete with vintage autos and night lighting.

A detailed Flight Instruction manual is included in the package along with a paint kit for those that wish to customize their own Dolphin.

A favorite in fsx, p3d and now MSFS 2020 ! Love the feal and sounds from my favorite. I have flown a quicksilver mx for many years and this recreates the whole experience in VR in the sim.

1st flight out of my home airport N49 Long Island, NY in the SWS Zenith 701 a flock of geese flew over! Beautiful addon for that extra realism. Terrific job!
AREZONE-AVIATION SOUNDSTUDIOS - BRITTEN NORMAN ISLANDER BN2 SOUNDSET MSFS
Rafael
Its requires a bit of a work around to install on the newest version. That being said this is one of the BEST sound samples I've ever heard for any plane. I grew up with the BN2 islander and this is EXACTLY How its supposed to sound!

This is my local home airport. I've been using a freeware mod for over a year now, and hoped for an addon of this quality. Highly recommended!

Great product.. Cloudsurf are making high quality airports for MSFS I also have ZSPD which is also a great product... Both very fps friendly without compromising high detail.
S-DESIGN - VELANA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT [VRMM] (MALE, MALDIVES) MSFS
Sammy
Wouldn't recommend, bought this addon hoping I would be able to park sea planes at, noticing that the pictures had it, and you go right threw them. The airport is decent, but kills FPS. Scenery around the airport is alright, looks like boats were just placed wherever and are in a big blurge.
FSXCENERY - KGON GROTON-NEW LONDON AIRPORT MSFS
Thomas
I applaud the effort on this and fort the most part it is pretty close to the actual airport. This is my ACTUAL home airport where I keep two aircraft in the hangars on the north end. I'm VERY glad to see these hangars are now the correct size and orientation, and the addition of the Helipad on taxiway Charlie is nice to finally see. Most of the buildings look pretty close to the real ones, but there are a few things I would love to change for a more authentic experience. First, I would lose the C-47 its a cool model, but its placed right where I normally taxi from the hangars out onto the movement area of the taxiways. No one EVER parks where this aircraft is located, and it is a big immersion killer. (for me at least) Second, I would not worry about jetways, or the crowd at the main terminal area. There are NO jetways or luggage carts at KGON, and there is NO airline or regional jet service. Just a small flight school with some Archers and Senecas. The military Helicopters are cool and authentic to the AVCRAD on the field, but they are parked on the wrong ramp, so if I could I would move those as well. If the developer is willing to work on an update, I would be very happy to provide lots and lots of pictures that could be used to more accurately depict this airport! Its definitely a good start, and probably totally acceptable to users who don't live at this airport.

Since I live just a few miles from KCRQ I'm one of the first to buy and install this airport. Its fidelity to the real one is amazing. Highly recommended.

Top quality!!! Thank-You BMW for sharing this. Keep up the great work
AEROSOFT - AIRCRAFT TWIN OTTER MSFS
Andrew
Although the sounds are very bad, and I had issues with simply updating the plane, Aerosoft customer support was relatively quick and polite in remedying my issue. The plane itself is pretty fun to fly around and the range of variants they've included means you can run through a wide array of scenarios in the sim. Their system, or systems really, they use to distribute and update their products is tedious, over complicated, clunky and overall a pain to use. The plane itself is good enough despite it's numerous issues on release, mainly sounds that are just horrible. Aerosoft customer support seems pretty solid too. I cautiously recommend this plane now, but don't expect anything earth shatteringly good.
