Grumman S2A Tracker

This time we feature Grumman S2A Tracker by Milton Shupe, Tom Fliger, Nigel Richards, Steve Bryant, Todd Disrud, Marcel Ritzema, John Humphries, CDF textures by Jeremy "Tankerguy72" U., and Jan Visser with help from SOH members. Features 2 models, updated textures and bump maps, great flight model, new radial sounds, and custom panels with clickable VC.

The Grumman S-2 Tracker (S2F prior to 1962) was the first purpose-built, single airframe anti-submarine warfare (ASW) aircraft to enter service with the United States Navy. Designed and initially built by Grumman, the Tracker was of conventional design — propeller-driven with twin radial engines, a high wing that could be folded for storage on aircraft carriers, and tricycle undercarriage. The type was exported to a number of navies around the world.

Introduced in 1952, the Tracker and its E-1 Tracer derivative saw service in the U.S. Navy until the mid-1970s, and its C-1 Trader derivative until the mid-1980s, with a few aircraft remaining in service with other air arms into the 21st century. Argentina and Brazil are the last countries to still use the Tracker. (Source: Wikipedia)

The Beechcraft Model 18 (or "Twin Beech", as it is also known) is a 6- to 11-seat, twin-engined, low-wing, tailwheel light aircraft manufactured by the Beech Aircraft Corporation of Wichita, Kansas. Continuously produced from 1937 to November 1969 (over 32 years, a world record at the time), over 9,000 were built, making it one of the world's most widely used light aircraft. Continuously Sold worldwide as a civilian executive, utility, cargo aircraft, and passenger airliner on tailwheels, nosewheels, skis, or floats, it was also used as a military aircraft.

During and after World War II, over 4,500 Beech 18s saw military service—as light transport, light bomber (for China), aircrew trainer (for bombing, navigation and gunnery), photo-reconnaissance, and "mother ship" for target drones—including United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) C-45 Expeditor, AT-7 Navigator, AT-11 Kansan; and United States Navy (USN) UC-45J Navigator, SNB-1 Kansan, and others. In World War II, over 90% of USAAF bombardiers and navigators trained in these aircraft. (Source: Wikipedia)

However, it was also used by the British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) as a transport.

This aircraft was the only one who flew in Spain with Spanish tuition. Its owner was Rodolfo Bay Wright, commander of Iberia and founder of Spantax. The life of this aircraft was short but intense, Bay made several flights with this plane to Villa Cisneros in order to transport lobster Peninsula, was released in the aircraft without dual controls. He even crossed the Atlantic with the aircraft and the USA, an American pilot flying it, trying to land on a short track he left the field and the aircraft was unrecoverable. This aircraft was a magnificent bomber II G.M. Had two Rolls-Royce Merlin engines 1700 C.V. I could fly to 685 Km / h and an altitude of nearly 11000m. (Source: documentation)

Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner

This time we feature Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner by Bob Chicilo and Chris Evans. Features a new HUD, pitch trim gauge, nav/GPS switch along with tweaks to the touchdown sound, wheel positions, and flight model.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is an American long-haul, mid-size widebody, twin-engine jet airliner made by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. Its variants seat 242 to 335 passengers in typical three-class seating configurations. It is the first airliner with an airframe constructed primarily of composite materials. The 787 was designed to be 20% more fuel efficient than the Boeing 767, which it was intended to replace.

Final US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) type certification was received in August 2011 and the first 787-8 was delivered in September 2011. It entered commercial service on October 26, 2011 with launch customer All Nippon Airways. The stretched 787-9 variant, which is 20 feet (6.1 m) longer and can fly 450 nautical miles (830 km) farther than the -8, first flew in September 2013. Deliveries of the 787-9 began in July 2014; it entered commercial service on August 7, 2014 with All Nippon Airways, with 787-9 launch customer Air New Zealand following two days later.

878-8: With a typical capacity of 242 passengers and a range of 7,355 nautical miles (8,464 mi; 13,621 km), the -8 is the base model of the 787 family and was the first to enter service in 2011. The 787-8 is targeted to replace the Boeing 767-200ER and -300ER, as well as expand into new non-stop markets where larger planes would not be economically viable. Approximately 33% of 787 orders are for the 787-8 as of October 2017, with 348 delivered.

Fletcher FU24

This time around we feature Fletcher FU24 created by Deane Baunton. Features a fully animated and detailed virtual cockpit with 3d gauges. Includes paint schemes for Super Air, Aero Work, Phoenix Aviation and Fred Fahey Aerial Services.

The FU-24 was loosely based on the Fletcher FD-25 Defender, designed by US aeronautical engineer and light aircraft enthusiast John W. Thorp, and originally conceived in 1951 as an STOL light attack aircraft. The prototype Defender was built by Fletcher Aviation in California and first flew in 1953. A few Defenders were later built in Japan.

The Fletcher is a conventional low-wing monoplane with tricycle undercarriage, side-by-side seating in front of the wing and hopper and pronounced dihedral on the outer wing panels. A door aft of the wing's trailing edge on the port side allows access to a cargo compartment. The Fletcher's airframe is constructed entirely of aluminium, heavily treated to prevent corrosion.

Boeing BAE T-45C Goshawk

This time around we feature Boeing BAE T-45C Goshawk created by Dino Cattaneo, Jivko "Neutrino" Rusev and Scott Printz, and Serge "fsxnavypilot" Lsa. The T-45C Goshawk is a heavily modified version of the Bae Hawk single engine jet trainer, adapted to aircraft carrier ops. This package contains an entirely new visual model with self shadowing, bump mapping and hi-res textures, working virtual cockpit, 3D gauges and reasonably accurate flight model.

The T-45 Goshawk is a fully carrier-capable version of the British Aerospace Hawk Mk.60. It was developed as a jet flight trainer for the United States Navy (USN) and United States Marine Corps (USMC).

The Hawk had not originally been designed to perform carrier operations; accordingly, numerous modifications were required to produce a suitable aircraft for such use, such as the extensive strengthening of the airframe, which had been necessitated in order to withstand the excessive forces imposed by the stresses involved in catapult launches and high sink-rate landings, both scenarios being routine in aircraft carrier operations.

The aircraft package includes the T-33A T-bird with 10 liveries, complete animations, full virtual cockpit, and custom gauges. The sounds package features real recordings of the Allison J33-A-35 turbojet.

The Lockheed T-33 Shooting Star (or T-Bird) is an American jet trainer aircraft. It was produced by Lockheed and made its first flight in 1948 piloted by Tony LeVier. The T-33 was developed from the Lockheed P-80/F-80 starting as TP-80C/TF-80C in development, then designated T-33A. It was used by the U.S. Navy initially as TO-2 then TV-2, and after 1962, T-33B. As of 2015, Canadian-built examples were still in-service with the Bolivian Air Force.

Originally designated the TF-80C, the T-33 made its first flight on 22 March 1948 with U.S. production taking place from 1948 to 1959. The US Navy used the T-33 as a land-based trainer starting in 1949. It was designated the TV-2, but was redesignated the T-33B in 1962. The Navy operated some ex-USAF P-80Cs as the TO-1, changed to the TV-1 about a year later. A carrier-capable version of the P-80/T-33 family was subsequently developed by Lockheed, eventually leading to the late 1950s to 1970s T2V-1/T-1A SeaStar. The two prototype TF-80Cs were modified as prototypes for an all-weather two-seater fighter variant which became the F-94 Starfire. A total of 6,557 Shooting Stars were produced, 5,691 by Lockheed, 210 by Kawasaki and 656 by Canadair.

A limited number of T-33s have found their way into private hands and have been used by Boeing as a chase aircraft. In 2010, one of two T-33 Shooting Stars owned by Boeing was used as a chase aircraft during the maiden flight of the Boeing 787. (Source: Wikipedia)

This package includes the Boeing 727-200 with custom panel, gauges and sound files. Includes flight crew manual and complete documentation.

The Boeing 727 is a midsized, narrow-body three-engined jet aircraft built by Boeing Commercial Airplanes from the early 1960s to 1984. It can carry 149 to 189 passengers and later models can fly up to 2,700 nautical miles (5,000 km) nonstop. Intended for short and medium-length flights, the 727 can use relatively short runways at smaller airports. It has three Pratt & Whitney JT8D engines below the T-tail, one on each side of the rear fuselage with a center engine that connects through an S-duct to an inlet at the base of the fin. The 727 is Boeing's only trijet aircraft.

The 727 was heavily produced into the 1970s; the last 727 was completed in 1984. As of July 2016, a total of 64 Boeing 727s (4× 727-100s and 60× -200s) were in commercial service with 26 airlines, plus a few more in government and private use. Airport noise regulations have led to 727s being equipped with hush kits. (Source: Wikipedia)

Beechcraft Bonanza P35

This time around we feature Beechcraft Bonanza P35 created by Brett Henderson and Alejandro Rojas Lucena. This package makes use of high resolution textures and was designed for FSX SP2. Features a fully usable virtual cockpit, custom gauges and unique custom compass, realistic flight model, full animation including unique v-tail rudder-vators.

The Beechcraft Bonanza is an American general aviation aircraft introduced in 1947 by Beech Aircraft Corporation of Wichita, Kansas. The six-seater, single-engine aircraft is still being produced by Beechcraft and has been in continuous production longer than any other airplane in history. More than 17,000 Bonanzas of all variants have been built, produced in both distinctive V-tail as well as conventional tail configurations.

Designed by a team led by Ralph Harmon, the model 35 Bonanza was a relatively fast, low-wing monoplane at a time when most light aircraft were still made of wood and fabric. The Model 35 featured retractable landing gear, and its signature V-tail (equipped with a combination elevator-rudder called a ruddervator), which made it both efficient and the most distinctive private aircraft in the sky. The prototype 35 Bonanza made its first flight on 22 December 1945, with the first production aircraft debuting as 1947 models. (Source: Wikipedia)
