The "Ultimate" Super 80 Simulation for FSX and FS2004

Notice: Please read our FS2004 (FS9) Limited Support Notice before purchasing this product.

(For previous customers looking for Service Pack 1 for FS2004, click here.)

Done in partnership with CoolSky, "Ultimate Airliners - The Super 80" brings back the classic modes of flying in the era where glass was just starting to appear. This rendition is based on the original Super 80, circa 1979. So with the combination of classic analog and early electronic navigation, you have a product that requires a lot of attention, but also rewards proper cockpit management. And if this does seem complicated, the new Integrated Cockpit Training System will help guide you through many of the steps required in order to have a successful and accurate flight.

There are many details that make this a highly advanced release for Microsoft Flight Simulator X and 2004:

  • Highly detailed 2D panel, Virtual Cockpit and external aircraft model.
  • FSX Compliant model, with FSX specific texture effects.
  • 2D panel created with 3ds MAX
  • External aircraft model created by Terry Gaff using GMAX
  • Highly detailed simuation of the instrumentation systems
  • New Integrated Cockpit Training System (ICTS) walks you through each procedure step.
