Editorial

One of the most impressive aircraft, for me, is the Martin Seamaster P6M-2. It’s like something from Action Man! It’s not only a very smart idea for an aircraft, but it also performs a deeply functional and effective role that, for me, makes it one of the most enjoyable aircraft out there to fly around with.

Not only is it deeply engaging and pretty interesting from a technical perspective but it also offers a unique, charming way to fly around both the skies and then land in the waters. It’s swept wing, four-jet style makes it very easy to control as well – but is it all that it’s cracked up to be?

The Design

First off, the attention to detail on the original mod by Pegasus Aviation is one of the most impressive that I have seen in some time. The work by Bruce Fitzgerald to revamp and modify this to bring it up to date with FSX is very impressive, adding a unique and interesting aircraft to your FSX stable.

That being the case, this mod does have its own limitations thanks to it being built for old hardware. However, that does not stop it looking absolutely brilliant whilst also offering a really interesting take on an aircraft that many might not know that much about.

The Performance

One of the most engaging factors of flying this mod, though, is the way that it performs. It’s nice to be able to know that you can land in the water as well as the sky so if you need to make an emergency landing you can do just that; this adds a greater level of realism to the aircraft. It’s a bit hard to fly at first but it should not take you too long to get used to.

The performance is helped and aided by the use of FSDSv2 when creating the mod. This ensures that features and designs are accurate and that this does a good job of representing what makes this aircraft such an enjoyable piece of kit to use anyway.

If you are interested in flying an aircraft that is fun and engaging, whilst offering something a bit different to the norm, then you would do well to try this out. It might not be to the liking of everyone who decides to use it but I personally have a whole lot of fun flying it!

Good model, cool idea. The VC needs to be rebuilt (because it's non-functional, doesn't look great, and theirs gray texture blocking the windows) and the Learjet 2d panel is akward, especially because it's a four engine plane, but the panel has only two throttle controls.

Not that great.

Boring

PLANE LOOKS REALLY GOOD BUT ONE SHOULD NOT PUT IN A PANEL IF THEY ARE GOING TO MAKE IT LOOK LIKE THIS. START THE PLANE ON WATER BECAUSE THERE ARE NO WHEELS. I WOULD PAY $4 FOR THIS ONE.

Cockpit is horrible. Has the engine sound of a 737. Overall, a poorly made airplane.
