For full details, click on Read More.SimMarket is happy to present the flightsim community with SimTECH Flight Design’s latest creation, a model of the famous luxury plane from the 1930’s, the Beech 17 Staggerwing. SimTECH has been making military models so far, but this Staggerwing is a very worthy entry in the civil aircraft add-on market. It is made for FS2002 but all customers will receive a free upgrade with additional liveries for FS2004 as soon as this is released. The Staggerwing is a ‘classic’ aircraft and fits beautifully in Microsoft’s upcoming FS2004: A Century of Flight. It will no doubt find a place in many virtual hangars.

The Staggerwing model features two versions, a retractable and a float plane, and it sports 6 different liveries. Some of the special features are the usual full animations but in addition it has interacting pilots, rotating window winders and door handles, opening windows, opening engine bay and more. The model can be seen and purchased from at this address:
