This DH.104 Dove and Devon collection for FSX and P3D includes five variants in a total of six liveries, with analogue and modern digital avionics options.

A direct descendant of the famous 'Wooden Wonder', de Havilland's Mosquito fighter/bomber, the Dove was developed by the same designer, R. E. Bishop, who was also responsible for the DH Comet racer and the awesome Comet jet airliner. An all-metal monoplane design, the aircraft was built as a short-haul passenger and executive transport to replace the successful Dragon Rapide biplane. The Dove first flew on September 25, 1945. An immediate success, many Doves were sold from 1946 on with Argentina placing orders for 70 examples.

An initial 30 examples were delivered to the Royal Air Force, suitably converted and equipped as light transports. Named the 'Devon', the Royal Navy also operated them as transport and liaison aircraft. The Royal New Zealand Air Force operated modified Devons for many years, in fact right up to the 1970s where they were used as training machines.

Scores of airlines large and small have operated Doves on short-haul routes and executive transport duties. Many flying on with new owners, well into the late 90s. Restored examples make popular tourist attractions for air show rides and several examples travel the world today as flying museum pieces.

MODEL VARIANTS

DH.104 Dove Mk.2
This early example was fitted with a clear Perspex roof cockpit and clear Perspex 'Cock’s comb' aerial, a characteristic signature of the early Doves and Devons.

DH.104 Dove Mk5/6
The cockpit now had a solid plastic/fibre roof which was painted. Many of these versions were continually upgraded in service and went on to fly with private companies as air taxis and executive transports. In this simulation you will also find a Mk.6 with modern avionics for those wishing to have modern conveniences in their classic.

DH.104 Dove Mk.8
The last version of the Gypsy Queen powered Doves, built primarily for the US market. The cockpit roof was lengthened and the roof aerials removed in favour of more modern types.

DH Devon C Mk.1 and Sea Devon C Mk. 20
As operated by the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy. These examples have the military specification cockpits, designed for a single pilot and navigator/engineer seats. The copilot had a large DeccaLog analogue flight recorder with moving pen and a complex system of dials and controls to plot the flight.

DH Devon C20 RNZAF
This is a unique variant of the Devon, built specifically for the Royal New Zealand Air Force. It is fitted with a large navigation Plexiglass dome atop the fuselage and a big viewing bubble in the forward starboard window. The wings are dominated by two three-mast aerial arrays mounted on the top surfaces and below the nose is a long tube which houses the 'LongWire' antenna, a navigational training aid.

ANALOGUE AND DIGITAL AVIONICS
In the included Dove Mk.6 there are two versions of the avionics: a conventional analogue set and a modern set of digital avionics for comms and navigation use, including a handy flight monitoring computer. Digital avionics default in the Dove Mk.8.

MSk has great scenery addons for fsx. overall great scenery you get what you pay for. Definitely can improve in some areas like night lighting at the terminal, runway textures and upgrade the jetways from static to moving.

Good modelling, VDGS as well as good performance are strong points of this scenery, unfortunately there are several issues that lower the quality to a point where I just don't think it's a good hub airport scenery: Som-
e issues that are important for a large hub airport: - Complete absence of accurate airline gate assignments and wingspan size for parking spots. AI Airlines and aircraft types park in places where they never do on the real airport. - There is no custom, Heathrow-specif-
ic animated ground vehicle traffic anywhere on the aprons or service roads. - Gross errors in jetway placement: Most jetways lack a realistic looking attachment to the walls. Some of the jetways are not even touching the walls at all, it's especially bad at Terminal 4. And many jetways therefore do not attach to AI aircraft. Strange negligence in quality control for something labelled as "accurate jetway placement" in the features list. It's issues like these that prevent the scenery from delivering a true Heathrow flair. There are further items amiss where the competition has done better: - A few service road tunnel ramps have been modelled while most are represented by flat, non-descending roads only. This is very much noticeable where such tunnels are located next to taxiways. - Some terminal buildings feature interior modelling that is plenty good for such a large hub, great job there. However, on those buildings that do not have such 3D interiors, only low-resolution night lighting textures are present. Unfortunately many daytime building textures are of low resolution as well, and a bit sterile in places, which do get noticed around the parking spots. - In some areas crisp apron ground textures are bordered by very crude low res aerial imagery devoid of any 3D structures, which are again very much noticeable if located right next to taxiways or parking spots. - While it is admirable to see high-res textures on all cars in the parking lots, the LOD for that texture is set so close as to pop up right in front of the aircraft, making the approach to runways 27R/L rather painful. Fewer cars with better LOD texture properties would have been preferable here. - The maintenance area is odd looking with hangars fully open and empty, looking more like huge shelters instead of aircraft hangars. I don't need an endless amount of detail, but here the maintenance area is a true ghost town. So while I see some good effort by ini such as VDGS and good care in placing taxiway signs or lights, the overall quality is not that good I'm afraid, in texture quality, features and accuracy. The lack of accurate airline/wingspa-
n specifications is especially painful in such a place, and there are many competitors that feature custom animated ground service vehicles as standard, both very important items at a hub airport.

It's cool to land Boeings and Airbuses on CATIII autoland, but this plane is much more fun and challenge to fly it! Get yourself a VOR/NDB only flight plan, disable FMC and you won't get bored during the flight. The manual itself is not as big and detailed like on those study level airplanes, but I still needed to study it and get some takeoff/landing training before I could fly this airplane. So it is kind of a study level machine. This is not my first Just Flight plane, I am getting more happy with each new one, so can't wait for them to release Fokker! My conclusion is, that everyone who is passionate about retro aviation, should get this plane, to feel what it was like, to fly a classic jet, as it feels great!

very well done and unlike others I find the interior useless so for me it is complete

One of my favorite bush trips was the Florida trip from the FSAcademy Voyager. This addon makes the trip along the keys even better. It now make the trip so much more immersive. Recommended buy if you spend anytime in the keys area.

very beautiful airport because i grew up here in this air force base shared between Portugal and US, probably one of the most important (strategically __________) US bases because all US military planes normally stop here due being in the middle of US and Europe so the pilots can rest and arm the planes, i grew up in this base (BA-4) because my father was an officer of Portuguese AF (from 80´s to 2000´s. This airport was very well done and it is an amazing place to explore, it has a very big runway for all type of planes, congrats tropicalsim, check my YT for reviews (guitargamery)

It lacks details and it's not like you can see much of it in real life, it could improve in those aspects
BORIS AUDIO WORKS - CIRRUS SR-22 SOUND SET - MSFS
David
Bought this for the XP11 SR22 and it was the best GA sound pack I've ever heard. Whilst the MSFS version is not quite as articulate or wide ranging in sounds as the XP11 version, it's still an absolute must have, if you enjoy the SR22 in MSFS, and so much better than the stock sounds. I wish they had got things like the AC / fan sounds working with the MSFS version, as they did with the XP11 version.

Die Bodenstruckture-
n könnten tatsächlich realistischer sein und einige Beschriftungen fehlen auch an den Airport Gebäuden. Ansonsten sehr gute detallierte Umsetzung mit fast liebevollen Details.Man sollte mal z.B. mit einem Follow me Car die Scenerie abfahren. Framerate sehr gut auf meinem PC System, auch die Seaplane Base ist gut nachgebildet.Kl-
eines Update durch S Design wäre gut
