In 1929, the Great Lakes Aircraft Company (GLAC) was formed in Cleveland, Ohio at the former site of the Martin Aircraft Company. They built civilian biplanes, float planes, as well as biplane torpedo bombers under contract to the US Navy. The model that most people think of today when someone says, "Great Lakes aircraft," is the enduring 2T biplane; also known as the Great Lakes Sport Trainer. It was designed and sold as a two-place, open cockpit biplane. The first engines were an 85 hp (63 kW) American Cirrus Mk III. The 2T biplane was not as large as some of its contemporaries manufactured by Stearman, WACO and Travel Air.

The original models had a wing span of 26 feet 8 inches and length of 20 feet 4 inches. The useful load was 578 pounds (262kg) and it was stressed for 9 g positive and 6 G negative. It had outrigger landing gear with spring oleo shock struts, and the range was 375 miles. The sale price started out at $4,990 dollars but as the depression came it was lowered to $3,985. The first four Sport Trainers built were of a rare straight-wing design, one of which was modified into a special racer. Because of problems recovering from flat spins, the top wing was swept back and that is what most people recognize first when looking at a Sport Trainer. At its peak, Great Lakes had as many as 650 deposits for new aircraft. With the onset of the great depression, the Great Lakes Aircraft Company went out of business closing their doors in 1936. The company built just 264 of the Sport Trainers ordered.

That would not be the end of the story for this iconic golden age flier as its timeless design has inspired others to keep the dream alive in through modification and refinement almost continuously over the decades since the original factory closed its doors. So it has inspired Golden Age Simulations to bring the Great Lakes to FSX and Prepar3D.

All of our models feature:

  • Incredibly detailed model with full animations and completely clickable virtual cockpit
  • Fully detailed power plants
  • Seven high definition liveries with blank textures for creating your own designs
  • Two unique liveries per aircraft presented
  • Precise smooth 3D modeled gauges with backlighting (if so equipped with an electrical system)
  • High fidelity sound package unique to each model
  • Precise flight dynamics
  • Detailed user's manual
  • Bonus scenery (offered with option 1 or 4 only)

We offer the model in four different package options

1929 Great Lakes - "The Original"

The 1929 Great Lakes Cirrus Powered Sport Trainer including a bonus scenery "Phenick Field"
This the original Great Lakes designed as a sport trainer it is powered by the 90 hp American Cirrus. A low and slow flier it is ideal for cruising the virtual skies and a joy to fly. Having no electrical system it's a VFR flier and has no vices. Its paired with Phenick Field, a flight training academy which once exited near Newark Ohio. It's a perfect location to practice in the pattern and perform touch and goes. Test your skill by flying through barn a feat not for the faint of heart.

1930's -40's Great Lakes "Modified" Sport

The Menasco and Ranger in-line engine conversion series. This package introduces engine conversions done just prior to WW2 with the mating of the 125 hp Menasco C-4 Pirate to the Great Lakes airframe. You might have seen this bird had you been wandering around the American aviation scene in the late 1930s as it appears to have been a fairly popular conversion. The extra power provided by the Menasco delivers a modest increase in performance perhaps ten miles per hour more at the top end and six or seven at cruise, or a bit more if you want to burn more fuel. This engine/airframe combination is a very pleasant airplane to fly, and economical to boot.

The Fairchild Ranger 200 hp l- L-440-3 version would be a typical post- war conversions and returning service men had a desire to go fast and with the surplus Rangers available this combinations did just that. With only 26 gallons of gas available feeding this beast you wouldn't go far without refueling but you'd have a blast getting there. The first and most immediate is the increase in torque effect and P factor, both of which require our pilots to pay a bit more attention, especially on takeoff. At 144 mph, the top speed of this version will raise an eyebrow, but the real eye opener is the vertical performance.

1950's Great Lakes Sport Stunt Planes

The Great Lakes Sport Stunt Plane collection. This collection represents conversions that were popular in the 1950's up until the early 60's and utilized surplus 165 hp Kinner R56 5 cylinder radial engines used on the Ryan PT-22 and the 185 hp Warner Super Scarab which was arguably the most sought after power plant for the Great Lakes and, until the kit planes started mating the airframe with the Lycoming power plants, the image that came to mind when the Great lakes was mentioned up until as late as the 1970's. We've included liveries that honor both Betty Skelton and Hal Krier, air show performing icons of the day.

Great Lakes Sport Trainer Bundle

This option combines all models in one package and represents a 40% savings to the purchaser over the expense of buying each option separately. 5 aircraft with 2 liveries each plus bonus scenery "Phenick Field"

Customer Reviews
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.....
MK-STUDIOS - TENERIFE VOL.1 FSX P3D
Simon Williams
Some airports create a special atmosphere and this one by MK-STUDIOS is no exception. Everything about it is finely detailed with the entire island modeled beautifully. The performance is great on frame rates for both day and night scenarios and is an absolute joy to fly into with high-end add on aircraft. Bravo! I am looking forward to future releases.
RFSCENERYBUILDING - LIPX VERONA VILLAFRANCA FSX P3D
Achmed Haag
Nice scenery, nice airport, but the same problem as their LIRQ: RW04 closed for takeoff - why ? Search youtube, you will find departure videos for RW04 even for bigger iron. ADE 1.75 solved the problem: edited RW04 pattern TAKEOFF=YES. B-
tw: inserted ATIS 124.125 (s. NOTAM B3610/18 NOTAMR B1425/18 : Trial in 2018). I wish, flightsim reviewers would do some takeoffs/landin-
gs under several wind conditions and not only look at the well made buildings (except instead of flying, they prefer to stay at the airport admiring the nice scenery or takeoff/approac-
h with tailwinds ;-)
MP DESIGN STUDIO - AEROSPATIALE GAZELLE SA342 FSX P3D
bertrand barbe
Long time user of helicopter in fsx,this product is one of the few that describe what a chopper feels like, and what a gazelle feels like and right out of the box, no extra needed. Superb flight handling, very extensive systems and behavior, the whole custom coded by a competent and kind team (support is excellent too). The price tag is unbelievably low for this kind of product.One of the two or three chopper really worth in FSX for people who want an taste of choppers.Can't wait to see what's next!
RFSCENERYBUILDING - LIRQ FLORENCE PERETOLA P3D4
Achmed Haag
Nice airport, nice environment, but no start/approach on RW05. A review in the english simmarket (thanks to jon moran) lead me to the solution: Th-
e Airport is defined with RW05 only landing and RW23 only start, but in P3D V4 the ATC let me only use RW23 for landing and start, even with wind 10kn from 40° , so I modified the BGL with ADE 1.75. And I added the missing ATIS (skyvector.com says 129.350).
BLUEPRINT - KSFO SAN FRANCISCO INTERNATIONAL FS2004
Carlos Castillo
Aesthetically, it's a B+, but it's probably the best up to date scenery available (flyTampa's concourse A is partially blocked from a now defunct concourse so parking is limited). However, as far as practicality, 3/5. I should not have to debug the scenery myself in order to get it to work just fine. If you're familiar with troubleshooting common scenery problems, it shouldn't be too big of a problem. The parallel runways run independently, meaning it does not come with the crosswind runway technique in place to operate both the 10s and 1s simultaneously, so be prepared to see a congested SFO if you do not know how to have both in operation. The runway links do not have a designator, so you may have to re-link it to where they have a designator (thankfully it is easy but annoying if unfamiliar with). Overa-
ll, 3.5/5, but because I managed to tweak it to my personal liking, I rate it 4/5.
FABIO MERLO - FLIGHTCONTROLREPLAY PROFESSIONAL EDITION FSX P3D
Mike Agosin
A nice start for P3Dv4, but falls WAY short of what FSRecorder could do for FSX in it's day: - Customization of cameras - Programmable camera switching in a recordings timeline (time-stamping)-
- A render feature up to 60 fps in a compressed, .WMV format A recording addon works much more efficiently when it's installed into the sim itself rather than a stand alone program. I understand the developer has V4 coming soon with a render feature. Hopefully additional features as well.
SIMELITE SOLUTIONS - TIME ZONE FIXER FSX P3D
Dan Downs
This is exactly what I was looking for to fix the problems P3Dv4 had with time zone offsets in Alaska and Hawaii. When I complain to LM they said sorry, but they used the standard 15 deg per hour offset for places that were not heavily populated (like no one every goes to Hawaii, right?). This fixes that and of course globally, and nothing else so no stuff running in the background messing with the simulator clock function. This is just bgl files that fix the problem, and they issue updates as required. Simple and effective.
PACIFIC ISLANDS SIMULATION - POSTCARD PUERTO VALLARTA P3D
Dan Downs
I got tired of Taxi2Gate to update their offering of MMPR and purchased this one because so far I've been pleased with every Pac Sim product. This one is no exception, just flew an AAL DFW-PRV route and was very pleased with the quality of the scenery both on and off airport. The only things keep this from being a top rated scenery is the lack of moving jetways at the appropriate gates, and the gate placement/numbe-
ring not being representative of the real world. I'll continue to add Pac Sim products to my sim world.
BDOAVIATION - KANSAI INTL AIRPORT FSX P3D FS2004
Dylan Charles
Been waiting for a good rendition of this airport for a while and to my surprise BDO released this very quietly. Well worth the wait and the money. Not disappointed at all and the performance is great for such a feature rich scenery.
