A fantastic recreation of the iconic and historic Sikorsky S-16 (RBVZ S-XVI) aircraft for your copy of the new Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) released in 2020.  This mod brings a well-known and legendary early WWI fighter to your flight simulator - completely freeware and by the developer Fsadni.

The Sikorsky S-16 displayed in Microsoft Flight Simulator after the mod has been applied to the sim.?The Sikorsky S-16 took its first flight in 1915 and was taken into production at the start of 1916.  It was a quick transition from first flight to service use - probably due to the fact that aircraft were in their infancy at the turn of the century and demand was high due to WWI.  The S-16 is one of those early biplanes.

The real-world aircraft could only support a crew of one - simply the pilot.  The pilot was the gunner along with the pilot of the aircraft. The real-world aircraft stayed in service up until 1923 and was used during the Russian Revolt.

The developer states;

I only started this about a month ago and had just been spending a couple of hours when I had time. So I thought I would finish it up to add to the first world war era like the other 2.

This model for MSFS features a complete aircraft with a detailed exterior model, a basic but working cockpit along with a gun turret and animated wheels.

Features include

  • Drag-drop installation
  • Animated wheels
  • Gun turret
  • Accurate cockpit
  • Detailed exterior model and liveries/repaints
  • Easy on performance and frame rates


Simply copy the contents of the Aircaft folder into your Microsoft Flight Simulator community folder.  You need to be sure to copy the directories without overwriting.  If unsure how to do this - be sure to browse into the Aircraft-->SimObjects-->Airplanes and copy the Sikorsky_S16 folder into your MSFS community SimObjects-->Aircraft directory.
