This is a native FSX Acceleration model of a 1946 Cessna C120. Specifically it is N2098V configured as it was in 1948. The designer soloed in this plane in the summer of 1948 at the ripe old age of 16. The project is based on Paul Matt's three views. It has 2048x2048 DXT5.dds textures. The VC has animated flight controls and working gauges. By Paul Clawson.

I lived in Bozeman Montana from 1946 to 1950. During the summer of 1948 (I was 16) I somehow convinced my parents I should learn how to fly. We went out to Gallatin field (right next to the town of Belgrade) There were two dealers at the field, one handling Luscombe's and a Cessna dealer called Gallatin Flying Service. I don't remember why I picked the Cessna dealer but it turned out to be a good choice because I wound up with Albert C. Newby as my instructor. Al had flown C-46 Commando's over the "Hump" during WW2 and was the definition of "there are no old, bold pilots" school. This was exactly what a 16 year old indestructible cowboy needed. The dealer had a 120 and a 140 dedicated to training. I spent most of my time in the 120 which was N2098V. I had to stretch my time over the next year since one had to be 17 to get a Private in those days. I was fortunate to take my check ride (in N2098V) and pass on my 17th birthday. I took my Mother for her first airplane ride that afternoon. I spent some time flying on Ski's as we had the blizzard of the century in 1948. I got some free solo time flying hay bales out to the cattle feed lots which were under about 6 feet of snow. We flew with carb heat on all the time and had the passenger door removed so we could put the plane on it's side and push the bales out hard enough to miss the horizontal stab.

INSTALLATION: Unzip C120vX into a temporary folder. Copy the folder Cessna 120 into the Airplanes folder of FSX. Copy the contents of the gauges folder into the Gauges folder of FSX. That's it.

I also learned to fly in N 2098V a Cessna 120. I took flight lessons in my fathers 20 here in Anchorage Alaska during the '80s.
