If any aircraft is associated with the Golden Age of Aviation, it is the Pitcairn PCA-2 Autogiro, dubbed the safest aircraft ever made. Golden Age Simulations is proud to bring to Flight Simulator this historic aircraft from the Golden Age.
Our package, although designed for FS2004, is completely compatible with FSX* and both installers are included in the purchase. In our package you will find the three variants of this unusual aircraft, The PCA-2 in three historical liveries; Steve Pitcairn's EAA Miss Champion, Johnny Miller's Missing Link and The Detroit News, the US Navy XOP-1 and a PCA-2 Crop Duster.
Each model is fully detailed and animated with a fully outfitted VC and a 2D panel. The flight dynamics are historically accurate with the model being capable of engine off autorotation. No other autogiro for Flight Simulator has been capable of this ability, to the extent that the Pitcairn has been modeled. Both the main engine and the rotor may be independently controlled just as the real aircraft performs. Special features include deployable banner tow and crop duster effect.
Scenery and missions from FSRealScenes adds to the immersive experience of this package. So relive the Golden Age, with us, with the Golden Age Simulations Pitcairn Autogiro Package!
*Known FSX Issues: at very high autogen settings and cloud density, minor interference with prop alpha textures; the roof of the Philadelphia Post Office in the mail run mission is not landable; the aircraft kneeboard does not support graphics. This in no way affects the performance of the model.
