Some instruments and interior details based on pictures taken at New England Air Museum. Custom XML instruments gauges plus defaults from DC-3. Animated cowl flaps and hatches. A flying boat, not an amphibian. No landing gear, but beaching gear provided. Can be taxied in and out of water. By George Diemer.

No Doubt a 10 Best cockpit virtual I ve seen on ANY DOWNLOAD Great attention to detail. It actually has water effects landing. Flys like smooth bubba hoo. Excellent paint can also be an anphibious plane. If you or don t the classic flying boats, still need d l this one

This aircraft flys like an angel once into the air.....takes 100 kts to lift outta water. Controls are smooth, trims nicely and navaids work fine. I flew a Walter Mitty flight from Seattle Avalon, no sweat. plane lets you trim it up then play with navaids. really it... A Big Well Done developers.

The panel and VC are very detailed. VC, while one of the best looking I ve seen, is not operational aside from views.
