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.

DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - SEATTLE CITY X FOR FSX P3D
tedias lim
Great city and one of the best sceneries I've had. I actually did worry about FPS but "believed" other reviewers and it is true that it performs better than the default scenery (P3Dv4), even with all those details added. Just as others I like the massive area too - you can fly a lot without ever leaving the scenery area. Very nice! There are tiny details everywhere and it looks and feels very realistic. The night lighting is gorgeous. I agree this is the best city package so far!

William Sheridan
Excellent airport scenery! I use this in FSX and I was very pleased to find very good frame rates and reasonable VAS usage in such a complex and detailed airport. Highly recommended!

DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - POLISH AIRPORTS VOL1 X (V4) FSX P3D
Aro Delahunty
A very nice airport package for a great price. Airports are very nicely done and the developer updates them regularly. I like the fact that large areas around airports are modeled, including some significant terrain features (and landmarks). Winter and night textures are good too. Building models are very good and ground markings very detailed. Frankly, each of these airports could have been a good separate product and in one package they are a great deal.

What an amazing piece of art. Very nicely detailed airport. Finally high resolution island. I highly recommend this addon.
IMMERSIVE AUDIO - 737NG CFM IMMERSION SOUNDPACK HD FSX P3D
Christian Osbakk
Im a owner of both the cockpit and cfm audio packs and all I got to say is WOW - not just because of the immersive audio itself but the fact that this developer is a truly enthusiast who really takes the time to make perfection and to listen to his users. Im one of those picky customer who use a high end audio system for my flight simming aswell as for music and movies and I instantly had some feedback and contacted the developer and right after I written to him I got an answer and he got to work, improving his work of art - just to satisfy me as a customer. That is world class suport and heart that I think other developers should aim for! I cant wait for this devs next piece of art - he makes it even funnier to flight sim!! Thank you!
TROPICALSIM - SANTIAGO CIBAO MDST 2018 FSX P3D
Ricardo Ulerio
Stunning recreation of my local airport! This is a big upgrade from the last version by bringing in the 2 new Jetways, and surrounding facilities along with new scenery technologies...-
Good Job, TropicalSim!
SIMELITE SOLUTIONS - TIME ZONE FIXER FSX P3D
N A Redpath
Excellent bit of software. I've yet to find any time zones that do not match real world local time. Makes flying in P3D4 so much more realistic now that we can follow proper schedules and get the correct sunrises/sunset-
s. This is an essential fix for your flight sim - buy it.
PILOT'S - FS GLOBAL ULTIMATE - NEXT GENERATION FTX FSX P3D FSW
Phil Coombes
I can only repeat what I said out loud when first seeing Innsbruck through my VR headset after installing FS Global Ultimate...it was a simple 'WOW', because it really does what it says, it has enlivened P3dv4 to another level. Already having Pilot's latest Real Weather (thanks to some super customer support from Stefan), my flight sim world has become more accurate and so immersive. So easy to install, the best add-on you can buy right now, valleys open up, mountains soar high into the sky and cliffs, well, hang....but it's the in-between areas that are stunning. Instead of flat areas between peaks, there are now interesting higher spots, changing scenery from 2D to truly 3D. Well worth the money and a great product.... I'd recommend it without hesitation.....
