NOTE: The Installer is manual; it is simply used because it has better compression than my Winzip version. It does not update the registry; it does not install an "uninstall" program. Just point it to a TEMP folder to decompress, then install manually.

  1. Copy the "Howard 500 FSX" folder to your FSX/SimObjects/Airplanes folder
  2. Copy the contents of the Effects folder to your FSX/Effects folder; overwrite or ignore okay

NOTE: See Operations Controls for yoke visibility, doors, curtains, etc.

Love it! Easy to play and has AP and GPS 500... Got the 2D panel and virtual too! Works booth on FSX Steam and P3D v4.

It is a very good Oldie, good for both FSX and P3D-4, virtual cockpit with GPS, and classical FSX Auto Pilot. It has good sound and is easy for T.O., Navigation, and landing !!! No 2D Cockpit.

Fun plane! Easy download! I like old propliners. Not only do I like doing the downloads, but I like learning the history of the plane. Thanks!
