FLYING CHARACTERISTICS

SSW Harrier is a not conventional model, it can be considered both a wing-borne and a jet-borne aircraft model since it can take-off and land using wing-lift or using engine nozzle vectored thrust.

To implement such not conventional characteristics was a challenge but we believe to have obtained a  behaviour very close to real as witnessedby real pilots and real former Harrier pilots.

Transition flight from jet-borne to wing borne and viceversa is surprisingly smooth, all typical vertical or short types of takeoff and landings can be performed with a very high degree of realism

SSW Drag coefficient concept implementation:

As known FSX has several limitations, one of these is that is not expected a model can change his shape during the flight (except for flaps surfaces et similar), then there is no possibility to dynamically change the drag coefficent. The static drag coefficient is stored either on .air or aircraft.cfg file thas is read once when the model itself is loaded into memory and cannot be changed easily, or at least in a documented way. SSW has developed a C/C++ .dll module that overrides above limitations, from now on our models will have a single .air and a single aircraft.cfg, changing configuration in flight (ie: dropping weapons, tanks) will affect not only the weight, which is already possible, but also the drag coefficient. Since the module behaviour can be easily customized it is also applicable at any type of model.Another step to achieve the max realism possible.

 

WING-BORNE CHARACTERISTICS

Flight characteristics have been accurately reproduced, almost all flight conditions: conventional takeoff, climb, cruise, combat, descent and landing are very close to flight tests and performances tables.

The model has, like in the real plane, the SAAHS (Stability Augmentations And Holding System) that greatly enhances manouverability and departure resistance.

Flaps are handled by a computer controlled schedule, no flap lever is provided, like in the real airplane user can choose from 3 flap operation modes: CRUISE, AUTO an STO.

The RR 408 engine combat trust and JPT control have been reproduced.

 

JET-BORNE CHARACTERISTICS

All aspects of Harrier vectored thrust flight has been reproduced with an high grade of realism:

Water injection control, wet/dry RR 408 engine

Ground effect

Wind effect

LIDS (Lift Improuvment Device System)

Sideslip acceleration with RPS (Rudder pedal shaker) a system to warn the pilot of a sideslip condition

Computed and displayed hover weight based on air temp, altitude and gross weight, therefore computed fuel quantity permissible on board

Computed and dispaleyd STO parameters, nozzle STO stop angle, STO nozzle rotation speed, ground roll, etc.

To enhance the real feeling some random perturbations are injected on the three axes during the hover.

All of above systems assure an high degree of realism and a great smoothness in the transiction from jet-borne to wing-borne flight and vice versa.

REVIEWS
Despite all I’ve spoken of in this review, the truth is I’ve barely scratched the surface of this aircraft, so deep and numerous are its systems. Rest assured, you can carry out a complete bombing mission 95% close to what a real-life Harrier pilot would be responsible for. The fact that I read through a 700+ page real-world operating manual and found it helpful on so many levels while learning to fly the sim variant is a totally new experience for me.

AEROSOFT - CATALINA X FSX P3D
Ken Gallant
This still holds up in 2019. It's getting 4 stars because there is a bug with the ADF/DME panels on the civilian post war models. There is a fix in the forums, but it should be in the installer by now as it was discovered years ago at this point. Other than that, I'm very impressed with this aircraft. The civilian post war version has no autopilot, but it's not much of an issue once you have it trimmed out. It's slow enough that if you step away for a few minutes it won't have drifted too far off course. Handles magnificently provided you keep an eye on the engine/oil/carb-
uretor temperatures. Cockpit looks good and sounds good. I recommend this PBY unless you're in a hurry to get somewhere.
FLIGHT SIMULATOR INNOVATIVE ADDONS - FLIGHT SIM FIRST OFFICER - QW 787
Tyrone Headlam
Been using the universal FSIA - FLIGHT SIMULATOR FIRST OFFICER LITE EDITION for the Qualitywings 787 but this edition brings more immersion in the virtual cabin from start to finish.
CLASSICS HANGAR - MESSERSCHMITT BF 108 B TAIFUN
William Sheridan
This is an excellent reproduction of this old aircraft. Its systems (some quite unique and quirky!) have been very well replicated and indeed, in terms of systems depth, it is up there with the best available for FSX. Great fun to fly and very immersive - highly recommended!
FSCENE - 4X TOTAL PACK FSX FS2004 P3D
MR ANSELM J MCILWRATH
This is a very fantastic scenery package love everything about it lots of detailed scenery and even more around the airport areas this is definitely a fantastic scenery package this is a must have scenery package definitely 5 star's from me very well done to the scenery team on this scenery ;):) looks fantastic round mountain areas as well definitely eye candy this scenery;):)
REALWORLD SCENERY - 3D PATK TALKEETNA ALASKA FSX P3D
Marco Gabbrielli
get lost in the Alaska wilderness, through this little hub, which offers two landing spots, with very good detail and photorealistic immersion (working well on p3dv4.5) wit-
h an AI traffic utility, the main airport has a lot of activity fin-
ally, get a bush plane and start to explore the Denali glaciers, as an air taxi pilot, what a fun good job, and thanks
RFSCENERYBUILDING - LIPZ VENICE MARCO POLO AIRPORT FSX P3D
Ken McVie
I agree with the earlier reviews about the lack of moving jetways. This spoils an otherwise great version of VCE and one which works beautifully in P3D v.4
PREALSOFT - CASABLANCA AIRPORT GMMN - P3DV4
Ken McVie
This is a beautifully modelled, and up to date, version of Casablanca GMMN. The airport detail (air & land side) is stunning and the gates are fuly operartional with SODE. No frame rate impact and the airport works beautifully on my P3Dv4. My only reason for not giving the full 5* is due to the complete lack of any Casablanca city detailing. The old FS2004 Aerosoft Casablanca airport product of long, long ago included detailed landmarks of the city such as the Hassan II Mosque and sea port. This product has no city detailing at all which is a real shame - especially when taking off from the westerly runways.
