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"

Very unique and fun location to fly out of. Love taking our Airbus H135 out of here, but the cave runway is great for my GA as well. Great job!

I could write pages reviewing this scenery, but I've come to 1 word that would describe my level of excitement: WOW!
MSCENERY - A4 SKYHAWK MSFS
David
Very reasonable model and flies well. There is room for making it better but it's acceptable.
NEXTGEN SIMULATIONS - BANDEIRANTE MSFS
Jorge
En sentido general es un avión disfrutable y fácil de volar debido a que el avión real no es muy complicado. Pero en cuanto a la oferta de NEXTGEN considero un precio demasiado elevado en comparación con el producto que ofrecen. Si mejoran las texturas de la cabina y el sonido el producto sería mucho más apreciado y seguramente tendrian más compradores y admiradores.

KBIL does not work with Orbx products. Unresolvable Elevation issues forced me to remove scenery.
VIEWPOINT TECHNOLOGIES - MANCHESTER-BOSTON REGIONAL AIRPORT KMHT V2 MSFS
Scott
Update: Less than 24 hrs. after my review the developer reached out to me with a fix for the jetway issue, I can now say this is a great scenery, for many years this was my go to airport when I was living in New England and this scenery captures everything I remember of the airport. Wel-
l worth the money and I look forward to seeing what Viewpoint Tech. comes out with next.
