So much history and a lot to explore in this ultimate MegaPack of clasic Super 80 and DC-9 aircraft. Released in partnership with Coolsky and exclusively for Prepar3D v4, we bring our entire previous "Ultimate Airliners" series into this single product.
The DC-9, built by the Douglas Aircraft Company, is a twin-engine, single-aisle, short to medium range jet airliner. The DC-9-30 is capable of carrying just over 100 passengers. It cruises at around 570 mph/910 km/h and has a range of about 1600 nautical miles (3000km). The DC-9 family of aircraft is one of the most successful series of airliners ever built with a total production of over 2,400 aircraft. Read more about the original DC-9 here!
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.

The Super 80 Professional simulates the latest cockpit upgrade given to the MD-80 series. It includes a full Electronic Flight Deck (EFD) that includes a full EFIS with FMS, TCAS, Systems Display Panel, Engine Display Panel, and many more advanced systems. The Super 80 Pro gives you the high-tech avionics required to fly the precision procedures executed by today's professional pilots. Read more about the original Super 80 Professional here!
The DC9's and Super 80's systems have been painstakingly replicated in this series. Using the advanced tutorials that are in place WHILE you are in the cockpit will help you learn how to fly these aircraft. We have provided links to over 1200 pages of manuals that cover the entire fleet. We sugges you download them so you can see how much detail went into the systems design.
The virtual cockpit 3D models and textures have been created by McPhat Studios. Widely known for their texture work, McPhat Studios are now also doing great 3D modeling work. They have put the same level of quality and attention to detail into their 3D modeling as they have in their award winning texture packages. And although these cockpits were developed for FSX, they still hold up well today.
The aircraft comes with fully operational 2D panel. Two forward views, two views of the pedestal , two views of the overhead panel, four circuit breaker panels, numerous training windows and an assortment of sub-panels and pop-up windows for all your cockpit needs.
The external aircraft model fully simulates the "flying ailerons and elevators" of the Super80/DC-9. Rather than being hydraulically operated, like on most other aircraft, the Super80/DC-9 ailerons and elevator are operated by a control tab at the end of the control surface which flies the control surface up and down. This means the control surfaces won't move on the ground when there is no air flowing over them. The aircraft model's doors and airstairs can be controlled and operated from the Ground Operations section in the Flight Center.
The Super80/DC-9 comes with live interactive schematic drawings of all major systems. These live interactive schematic drawings have been designed to help you understand exactly what is going on with your aircraft and its systems.

The failure simulation system in the Super80/DC-9 Classic allows you to practice how to respond to different types of emergency and abnormal situations and scenarios - just like professional pilots do when they go in for their regular simulator training ride.
The Super80/DC-9 Classic simulates 140+ individual system failures and situations in 3 categories of emergencies and 14 categories of abnormal situations. You can setup a single system to fail or you can set multiple systems to fail in sequence thus simulating broader failure scenarios.

The Automatic Aircraft Configuration feature, or Auto Config for short, has become one of the signature features of the Coolsky aircraft. The Auto Config feature has been designed to completely and properly set up the aircraft for you according to the selected phase of flight. All systems, switches, knobs and levers will automatically be set according to the appropriate checklist.The Auto Config feature is a set-and-go type of feature. Once you have selected your Auto Config option, all that remains for you to do is fly the aircraft, navigate and enjoy your flight.
To help you learn how to fly this new aircraft, the Super80/DC-9 Classic comes with an integrated cockpit training system. This training system guides you step-by-step through all the checklists and procedures necessary for the safe and proper operation of the aircraft.As you step through the training lesson, the training system will describe exactly what you need to do. The training system will also automatically open the appropriate panel window and highlight the instrument, switch or lever being discussed. All the guess work and searching for switches has been taken out of the equation.
You can select the number of passengers and amount of cargo you will be transporting, as well as the fuel load needed for the planned flight in the Dispatch section of the Flight Center. You can open a complete Weight & Balance Control form for manual weight and balance calculations and you can print out a departure plan with a complete loadout summary, all in the Dispatch section of the Flight Center.
Various options to customize your Super80/DC-9 Classic cockpit environment and training are also available in the Flight Center.
