The L.3 was a partially failed attempt to create a very simple and cheap monoplane trainer, better suited to the entire basic training syllabus of Regia Aronautica pilots from 1940 onwards. This closed cockpit version, initially conceived for civil use, was used also by the Croatian Air Force, the Luftwaffe and by the A.N.R. (for assault glider pilot training also). Some also served as 'unit hacks' during WW2. This release (Part 2) provides a closed cockpit MDL in many relevant liveries.It also works (Tested) subject to some limitations within in FSX. A.V.I.A.

A new cockpit arrangement for Greg Pepper's lovely Calclassic Boeing 377. All new gauges with a new arrangement. But still retaining a fairly accurate and original look. The 2D panel has been deleted, as I never use it anyway. A description of all modifications and some necessary instructions are in the read me file. Enjoy! Bob Erwin

For FS2004 and FSX: The L.3 was a partially failed attempt to create a very simple and cheap monoplane trainer, better suited to the entire basic training syllabus of Regia Aronautica pilots from 1940 onwards. This open cockpit version was also adopted for 'lead in' training, by the Croatian Air Force, and eventually the Luftwaffe, and by the A.N.R. for assault glider pilot training. Some also served as 'unit hacks' during WW2. Full details are in the suppled contextual history. This release (Part 1) provides two open cockpit MDLs, with different landing gear, many relevant liveries, a combined contextual history of both the open and closed cabin versions, and an illustrated Student Training Manual to allow realistic simulation of the wartime Axis 'lead in' training syllabus. The Part 2 of this release will later feature the enclosed cabin version. VC only.It also works subject to some limitations within in FSX.GMax Models and Skins by Manuele Villa, Flight dynamics by FSAviator. By Manuele Villa/MVG3D, January 2015.

Miles M-38 Messenger Mk1 Among VIP operators allocated personal Messengers were Field Marshal Sir Bernard Montgomery and Marshal of the RAF Lord Tedder. 21 were built for military use - many were converted to MK4As post-war for civilian use. In its role as a VIP transport the 36 ft 2 in span Messenger had a maximum speed of 116 mph and range of 260 miles. Note - most early aircraft had these rectangular windows but see 'Versions-notes'. Will also work OK in FSX. David Molyneaux

Regarded as the best Italian aircraft of World War II together with the Fiat G-55 Centauro,the Macchi-Castoldi C.205 proved to be extremely effective in action, destroying a large number of Allied bombers and capable of successfully clashing on equal terms with such renowned fighters as the North American P-51D Mustang.Although the C.205 was able to match the best Allied opponents both in speed and maneuverability, it was introduced late during the conflict. Moreover, due to the poor Italian industrial capability of the time, only a small production run was delivered to combat units before the end of the war. Famous C.205 pilots are Italy's highest scoring ace Adriano Visconti and the top scoring C.205 Sergente Maggiore pilota (Sargeant Major pilot) Luigi Gorrini. To date,there's still debate about Gorrini's score, since Regia Aeronautica preferred crediting units over individual combat achievements. Gorrini's official aerial combat score is 19 victories, but, according to his memories, he achieved 7 more during his service with Aeronautica Nazionale Repubblicana (A.N.R.), flying a Macchi C.205. These victories did not enter his officiall tally due to political reasons, since the A.N.R. fought by the side of the German Luftwaffe after the Italian September 8th,1943 armistice. These bring his total tally to 26 victories, making him the top scoring Italian fighter ace of WWII. For his combat record with the A.N.R he was awarded twice by the Luftwaffe with the Iron Cross First and Second Class. Luigi Gorrini was also awarded for his actions, after the end of the war, with the highest Italian military decoration, the "Medaglia d'Oro al Valor Militare" (M.O.V.M.,Gold Medal for Military Valour). Last surviving Italian fighter pilot of WWII, he died recently at the age of 97 and this repaint is dedicated to his memory. This download requires the previous installation of the base Aermacchi C.205 Veltro package(C205_V01.zip). Repaint by Manuele Villa/MVG3D, November 2014.

PART 2 - THE PEACETIME YEARS The post war Aironi retained their AR126 engines all the way to retirement in 1959, but they were modified to have feathering Savoia hydraulic constant speed airscrews which required new controls in the old cockpit. High power then became available for TOGA for the first time allowing take off from smaller harbours during air ambulance sorties, and perhaps overload survivor rescue. The omnipresent problem of engine overspeed disappeared, but the early series Bristol Pegasus engines remained too primitive to have cowl flaps to control engine cooling. The gondola lost its windows and ventral hatch to reduce drag. New navigation equipment and procedures were introduced. ATTENTION -- THIS IS A FLIGHT SIMULATION SUPPLEMENT.
