FSX Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina Update

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

This is an update for FSX of Mike Stone's Consolidated PBY5A. It was only necessary to reposition two float points and change some gauges on the panel for the previous update of it to work in FSX. This update includes textures by Geoff Chambers, the Canadian textures. This is the whole aircraft. No virtual cockpit. By Bob Chicilo.

Unzip to a folder of your choice. Copy the aircraft to the main airplanes folder. Copy the gauge and effect to the main gauges and effects folders.

If you have not already done so, copy the .cab files from the default aircraft panel folders that have them to the main FS gauges folder. For some the .cab files will be .zip files as .cab files are a type of .zip file.

See [reference speeds] in the aircraft.cfg file for operating speeds.


Anyone: You have my permission to use any of my updates with the following conditions: One, you don't try to make money with them. Two, you don't try to hurt, or take something from anyone by using them.

Bob Chicilo.
