In the late 1930’s Cessna saw a growing need for an inexpensive, light twin. The popular twin of the day, the Twin Beech, was fairly expensive and was often oversized for roles with small businesses or occasionally, small charter airlines.

First flown in 1939 and reaching production in 1940, the T-50 Bobcat was of fabric-covered steel-tube construction featuring retractable main landing gear and electrically actuated trailing edge flaps. With the wing structure built up of laminated spruce spar beams and its fuselage faired with spruce stringers, it gained the nickname, “the Bamboo Bomber.”

The Bobcat quickly found great success as a military multi-engine advanced trainer and utility transport; its wood construction was ideal since it didn’t require diverting a lot of valuable aluminum from the war effort. Over 4600 airframes went into service with US forces, with another 640 flying with the RCAF and the BCATP. Not used for long in post-war service, remaining military Bobcats were declared obsolete by 1949.

The ready availability of surplus T-50’s (available at the time for less than $3000) meant that quite a few made their way into civilian life, finding use in many areas of commercial and private aviation.

The Bobcat also found cinematic fame on the 50's television show Sky King, where a T-50, named Songbird, was flown by the lead character (one of which used on the show was the actor’s own aircraft) until replaced later in the series by a Cessna 310B.

Introducing the Milviz T-50 Bobcat

We are very pleased to introduce the newest aircraft to our line-up, the T-50 Bobcat.

Our goal for the T-50 was to create a highly detailed and precise replica of this classic aircraft. This starts with an exquisitely rendered 3D model, both inside and out. Every switch, lever, crank, and control is in its place, allowing the virtual pilot full control. High resolution textures and smoothly animated gauges, along with high quality audio, add to the sense of immersion.

Once in the air, a carefully tested flight model combines by-the-book numbers with a smooth sense of proper flight response in order to carefully replicate the same experience that so many wartime pilots experienced on their way through the multi-engine training program. Our team has spent countless hours tuning, testing, checking, and reporting on how the aircraft performs so as to ensure an authentic recreation.

Radio Range System

A first for a FSX/P3D commercial product, the T-50 Bobcat includes a detailed and fully functional simulation of the Low Frequency Radio Range system. This was the early radio navigational system used across North America (as well as a few other regions) beginning in the 1930's until replaced by VHF band VOR navigation in the 1950's.

The system allows you to tune a set radio signal and "follow the beam" by listening for the continuous tone while navigating from station to station. Off course information is given to the pilot through a quadrant system of Morse Code signals. A full description is far too lengthy to put into words here, but needless to say it's a fascinating (and slightly challenging) experience, one that perfectly fits within the era and role of the T-50 Bobcat.

MVAMS Configuration

As with our other recent releases, configuration for the Bobcat is though our included Milviz Aircraft Management System (MVAMS). This external application provides easy control over setting your preferred options when the Bobcat is loaded in the simulator.

From within the MVAMS application, you can choose pilot and passenger figures to display, your avionics options, and whether you prefer the T-50 to load cold and dark, or with the engines running and the aircraft ready for flight!

Selectable Avionics

While a T-50 Bobcat pilot from the 40’s or 50’s would have only dreamed of the extensive selection of avionics available in today’s aircraft, we’ve allowed for a modern restoration which may have a more up-to-date cabin, featuring GPS and weather radar. An option is also provided for having no modern avionics at all, so as to allow for those who wish to immerse themselves in the era in which the Bobcat was flown in a military setting.

Built-in configuration support from within our MVAMS application is included for the following in various configurations:

Flight1 GTN 650 (Dual)
Flight1 GTN 750 (Single)
Flight1 GTN 650 & 750 (Combo)
Reality XP GNS 430/530W XP (Combo)
MilViz GNS 430/530 (Combo)
Mindstar GNS 530
WX Advantage Radar
No GPS Option
Please note that compatibility for the above gauge packages includes support for installation and setup of our product only; use of any of the offered options requires a functional existing installation of the appropriate gauge. The Bobcat comes with our MilViz 430/530 combo, but any other gauges we list compatibility for are not included.

Use of any 3rd party avionics package in any desired simulator is also of course restricted to the availability of the avionics package for that simulator. Please see the respective manufacturers’ websites regarding platform compatibility for your avionics package.

Multi-Platform Support

Your MilViz T-50 Bobcat purchase supports installation into a full range of platforms, from one single installer:

Take-off and Landing the plane is very Realistic! I'm Using P3D 4.5 HF3 on Laptop. There are even ways you can make it compatible with P3DV5 on CS Forum! And Plenty of liveries!! A-
nd it's easy and simple to master the technique's of the Aircraft if you are someone like me who doesn't like to understand that complex stuff like PMDG that's Way too Expensive. When you can save alot more! And the best part!! The plane is more cheaper on Simmarket compared to the CS Store! This definitely gives you the advantage to save some Money. A Must have Plane for sure! Alongside With a Full Beautiful interior Passenger Cabin!! Fantastic to Tour the Cabin During Cruise When AutoPilot is Engaged of course!

All is good except the night. I personally find the terminal look as if it has no windows, and given the interior of the terminals are not as well developed. the overall night scenery is somewhat disappointing.

For 8 Euros this a steal, compared to the other competition this is a no brainer. You wont regret it.
RARA-AVIS SIMS - ZIPPY SPORT MSFS
Jonathon
Brilliant little airplane for the price. The sounds are *not* based on the VW engine. The engine sounds like something on a Kitfox. I would move this review to five stars if the engine sounds were improved to something resembling the actual VW engine. It handles great, It is fun to takeoff and land. It is a neat cockpit view. Great module, great value :)
JUSTFLIGHT - SC DESIGNS F-16 C, D & I FIGHTING FALCON MSFS
Brock
Great aircraft. All around this thing is a joy to fly. Only giving 4 starts for a few grips. The afterburner effects could use some work. Hard to cold start it on your own the throttles click box is two big and will not allow you to get to some of the switch's that are needed to get the engines up and running. Hop-
efully that will be fixed and it will be an easy 5 star.
JUSTFLIGHT - ROMANTIC WINGS - A6M5 'ZERO' AND A6M-N 'RUFE' MSFS
Brock
What can I say this is as basic as it gets. And worse yet, two of the planes are so broken they don't fly I bought this for the sole fact that its the only place to get a Zero in MSFS as far as i'm aware. This unfortunately for me is sub par and should really be freeware. We will start with the good. THE GOOD: -Each of the 4 aircraft have their out custom functional cockpit. -The exterior models are very well done in terms of modeling. -Mos-
t all control surfaces are animated except for the tail wheel stays straight when you turn on the ground. -The aircraft carriers are a nice touch. You can't spawn on them but you can land and take off after your already in the air. THE BAD: -While each plane has its own cockpit. They are very lacking in detail. Good start but lacking many, many, things in the real cockpits -The Val and Kate are the worst offenders here as those cockpits feel the least polished. -The flight model for the Zero is flyable but leaves a bad taste. The top speed and acceleration feels to slow compared to the specs it should have and the roll rate is abysmal. -The Val in all liveries has two to three black dots about 5 feet above the cockpit in the aircraft model and is easily visible in external views. -RJX8 additions and alterations are nice but so far i noticed in you get close to the water there are huge waves as if the water is painted onto rolling hills near the shore heading to the carriers. Looks very bad as were talking like 20 to 30 meter elevation changes on what should be flat water. THE BROKEN: The Val and the Kate.... Are completely unflyable. If you take off from the ground you can get to about 100 knots and you are maxed. If you try to pull up in the slightest you will stall and fall. You will never acquire enough airspeed to actually fly this plane with one exception. I have tried multiple things to correct this, at first i thought they were just overweight for some reason as that's exactly what they fly like. Way over weight, this did not fix the problem. Flaps up, flaps down, full fuel, low fuel. No change. Just unflyable and broken. The only way i have found around this is to start your flight already in the air. This seems to fix whatever the issue is. They still have a sub par flight model, but they at lease fly. Useless to me as I want to start on a ramp. -------

Do not purchase this unless you like me are in love with old world war two birds, only other saving grace is the carriers. Th-
is could be a great package for 20 dollars. You can tell it started off with love that ran out and just turned into a cash grab. Curren-
t state this should be freeware. Maybe they will update but that remains to be seen.

Bought it through their website, and used their products since FS2004. I would like to say that I’m very pleased. It feels very nice hand flying it, the turbochargers actually work, the sounds are deafening and immersive. Texture wise Flysimware stepped up and offered a pretty beautiful airframe and cabin. Adding the GTN750 third party addons makes this machine perfect for any mission. The systems are accurate, from fuel control to the pressurization system! I highly recommend it, and I’m glad to see Flysimware in MSFS!
WF SCENERY STUDIO - HONG KONG INTL AIRPORT VHHH P3D4-5
Marian
Simply outstanding! Lived in HKG, flown in and out so many times, I can say this scenery is 100% top class. Updated 3rd RWY patch was released this month, so this is great. Wish other developers were like that. Plus, any question I have i.e. re static aircraft were answered by the Developer within 24 hours. Nice!

This brings the city of Manchester to life! Superb detail textures and landmarks. And it works well with UK2000 MAN. Also, the support I needed from AC Scenery was excellent.
