FSX Northwest Airways WACO Fleet

Complete with Base ModelJump to: Screenshots | Comments | File Details

This package includes the Golden Age Simulations CTO models represented as the Northwest Airways WACO fleet being operated as an airmail service in 1929-1936. The staff consists of a historical fleet (in two configurations - with or without engine jacket and landing gear pants), powered by 330 hp Wright R-975E engine and a pack of two airworthy survivors with 365 hp R-975E-1. Apart the original models and basic texture the package also includes all necessary liveries and two new VC panels. Paints and modifications by Vladimir Gonchar.

Installation:

Just unpack the package and put the staff to the main FSX directory. A panel folder originally includes files for a wide-screen monitor. So in case of a normal monitor use files from "panel.normal" folder.

The panel staff consists of a VC panel and auxiliary mini-panel for outside view flying. The gauge set is arranged for IFR flights. To make the engine start-up more realistic I made a strict sequence: the engine will not work if you do not open the throttle 1/8'' at least and strike the primer a couple of times before depressing the start button.
