After the end of WW1, Vickers decided to build an airliner version of the Vimy bomber.

The prototype Vimy Commercial flew in april 1919. A total of 44 were built, most of them for China. The most well-known example was, however, G-EASI 'City of London', flown by Instone Air Line (and later Imperial Airways) 1920-1926.

For more details and flying instructions see the pdf document installed in the \Documentation folder.

*To install for Flight Simulator X:

Just run the included setup program.

Sounds: Identical to the sounds of the stock FS9 Vickers Vimy.

Gauges: Most of them borrowed unchanged from the FS9 Vickers Vimy.

Textures: Fuselage textures by me, wing, tail and engine textures adapted from the FS9 Vickers Vimy.

The flight dynamics are by me. The engine sections of the *.air file are copied from the FS9 Vickers Vimy flight dynamics.

This plane was originally made in september 2005 with FSDS 2.24, this revised version with FSDS 3.5.1 The textures with Paint Shop Pro and DxtBmp.

Good luck flying the Vimy Commercial!

All due congratulations to the authors of this excellent work. I became very interested in this model aircraft when I read the famous book by Sir Basil Embry "Mission Accomplished" who flew it for many hours as a young R.A.F. pilot flying in the Middle East. Thanks to the Fly Away website for allowing us to download these great downloads.
