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.

AEROSOFT - MEGA AIRPORT BRUSSELS MSFS
Max
This is a gorgeous and highly detailed airport which is fast becoming one of my favorites! The architectural structure is beautiful. The terminal is finished with animated passengers, beautiful textures are all over. The terminal windows are tinted green. Even the tower is fully modelled inside. I haven't tried the VDGS system yet, but I'm looking forward to it. It's clear that Aerosoft is setting an even greater benchmark for realism and quality in their airports.

SIMBITWORLD - A PILOT'S LIFE - CHAPTER 2

Easily the best ATP career addon for MSFS, or any major current flight simulator. You fly real routes (regularly updated) with real airlines; you start out as a Junior First Officer, and work your way up through the ranks to First Office, Senior First Officer, and so on...all the way up the most senior Captain's rank. You also progress through the airlines, from smaller one and two-start carriers like ExpressJet or BahamasAir, all the way up to the highest ranked Five-Star airlines in the world, Like British Airways, American Airlines or Emirates. It-
's great fun, and as you change airlines, you'll find yourself flying to many new parts of the globe you've probably never been to before...hours and hours of flying fun. There's also a great, friendly Discord community, where both mods and users offer support for new and old players alike. Give it a try; if you've ever wanted to fly an airliner as a career pilot, this is the addon for you.

Textures look great, except for the terminal ramp area, the concrete doesn't show the markings very well in my opinion, but everything else is fantastic!

FS2CREW - PUSHBACK EXPRESS MSFS
Kamaniya
This is now a MUST HAVE addon for MSFS. The latest version has a nice arrow guidance to easily setup the push back and alignment. And coupled with the voice integration and support level PBE is unbeatable in terms of UI, ease of use and non interference with MSFS memory leak and other issues which is apparent in some of the freeware. Hi-
ghly recommended.
