Few aircraft have had as much of a direct impact on the traveling public as the DC-9. Introduced in 1965, the DC-9 and its many derivatives (the MD-80, Super 80, & Boeing 717), continue to carry passengers throughout the world with great reliability. Flight One Software has reproduced this timeless classic for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002/2004 users as part of its new Iron Knuckles series.
The Iron Knuckles DC-9-30 allows the user to experience what it was like to fly a commercial jet aircraft before the era of glass cockpits and modern flight management systems. Iron Knuckles transports you to a time when commercial pilots navigated their aircraft through complex procedures and situations that relied on analog gauges, extreme discipline and hard math in order to arrive safely to their destination.
The Iron Knuckles DC-9-30 has been developed for Microsoft's Flight Simulator 2002/2004 and takes advantage of the latest design techniques while providing the look and feel of an older and classic DC-9 style cockpit. The Iron Knuckles DC-9 cockpit allows you to access multiple sub-panel assemblies for a more realistic experience and proper pilot perspective. The DC-9 includes high quality sounds for an unmatched level of realism.
The Iron Knuckles DC-9 also includes Flight One's proprietary Text-o-Matic aircraft repainting utility. Text-o-Matic allows you to download and install additional aircraft paint schemes and have them flying in a matter a minutes. The DC-9 includes documentation, checklists, specifications, and aircraft history to help you understand and fly this classic aircraft.
Anybody can read a manual, program a flight management computer, hit the autopilot, ring the flight attendant for coffee and enjoy the flight. However, it takes a special breed to fly by nerve, steam gauges, and the seat of your pants. Flight One Software challenges you to fly the Iron Knuckles DC-9-30. Do you have what it takes to be in command?
