Three famous names in aviation history belong to the manufacturers/designers of the Travel Air. Walter Beech, Lloyd Stearman, and Clyde Cessna formed the Travel Air Manufacturing Company in Wichita, Kansas in January of 1925. Travel Air planes accounted for just over 50% of Department of Commerce license applications for August 1928. The first Travel Air 6000 took to the air April 15, 1928 and a legend was born.

The design of the Travel Air 6000 expanded on the concept of the Travel Air 5000, which was the first commercial aircraft to cross the Pacific (July 1927). The summer of 1928 Walter Beech organized a cross country tour promoting the 6000 and by Fall had 14 firm orders. Lucrative air mail contracts with the idea of passenger service as a second income fueled entrepreneurs' plans. But passengers became more of an income opportunity, and Travel Air modified its existing monoplane design to promote "executive flying." Improvements included a toilet/washroom, luxurious interior, the best engines available, wide windows, and updated instrumentation. The price at the factory ranged from $13,000 to $13,500. The most expensive Travel Air was a $20,000 custom built Travel Air A-6000-A power by a Pratt & Whitney engine for actor Wallace Beery.

While intended for executive flying, Travel Airs saw more use as "feeder liners"; early commuter airlines like Delta operated them, as did Texas Air Transport (later TWA) and Woodley Airways (later Alaska Airlines). Bush pilots in Canada and Alaska discovered the ruggedness, load carrying ability, and dependability of the Travel Air, and it became the bush plane of choice for many. One of the more famous companies to use Travel Airs was Johnson's Flying Service of Missoula, Montana. Once described as a "virtual air force of old planes", Johnson's maintained Forest Service contracts well into the 1960's and used both Ford Tri Motors and Travel Airs on floats or wheels to haul smoke jumpers and freight to remote regions. A free add-on effects package is included with each download that once installed will allow you to deploy smoke jumpers. This effect is also available for use with other aircraft and is available on our downloads page at now cost.

The Travel Air 6000 Alaskan Adventure Pack brings to FS9 the experience of bush flying in remote Alaska in a way never before presented for the flight simulator. In the package are 5 distinct aircraft representing aircraft flying today. There are 3 B-6000 versions: the land plane, the float plane and a smoke jumper plane, representing the many roles this great plane of the Golden Age fulfilled. There are 2 of the powerful A-6000 models, both land and float planes, powered by the 450 hp Pratt and Whitney SC-1. All aircraft are faithfully rendered with flight dynamics representing the actual aircraft specifications. Effects and animations include: fully animated pilot, complete VC with operable controls, switches, windows, and animated landing lights. Included as well is a custom scenery package, complete with missions: Shakun Inlet, Alaska! This scenery package creates the bush flying environment adding the immersive experience of the entire package. Try your piloting skills with custom scenarios designed to test the skills of pilot and machine. Its all here for you with the Golden Age Simulations Travel Air 6000 Alaskan Adventure Package!

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.
