Ultralight Interplane Skyboy. This is a Czech built ultralight. It is for VFR flying only. The Rotax 912 engine is by Byron Warwick. This model of the Flyboy has no flaps. This requires that you learn to land with throttle contol only. There is a bug in FSX that does not handle "parts within a part" textures correctly, you'll see it. By Don Halcom.

READ ME file for the Interplane Skyboy. This is version 1.0 by Don Halcom for the FSX.

CREDITS

Thanks to Byron Warwick for his absolutely wonderful FSC file of the Rotax 912 engine. Without this engine this project would never have been attempted. I converted this engine from tractor to pusher for the Skyboy.

Thanks to Barry Blaisdell for his excellent Rotax 912 sound files. As far as I know these are the only Rotax 912 sound files on the internet. There are other Rotax sound files just not Rotax 912 sound files.

AirWrench from mudpond.org was used to make the flight dynamics. This software is not free but is very good.

Thanks to Microsoft for some of the gauges used in this model were the gauges that came with FSX.

I did all of the gauges in the "Skyboy.cab" file. As FREEWARE you are free to use them in any way you like except to make money.
