FSX Short Empire flying boat

FSX Short S.23, S.30 and S.33 Empire

Version 3.0 february 2011, by Jens B. Kristensen. This is a model in the
native FSX format, an FS2004 version is available separately.

These famous aircraft formed the backbone of the British
national airline, Imperial Airways, it's sucessor B.O.A.C.
and its partners Qantas Empire Airways and TEAL from the mid ‘thirties
and through World War Two. The aircraft that survived the war were
replaced by more modern aircraft in 1946-47.

The C-class also served as the basis of a famous,
military flying boat, the Short Sunderland.

For more details and flying instructions see the
pdf document installed in the JBK Short S23Manual folder.

This package includes three variant in six colour schemes:

Normal, short-range S.23:

Imperial Airways 'Canopus', Qantas 'Coorong'.

Medium-range S.30 and S.33:

TEAL 'Awarua', BOAC 'Cleopatra'

Extended-range S.30:

Imperial Airways 'Cabot', and BOAC 'Clare' in war-time camouflage.

----

New in this version: the panel and virtual cockpit are more accurate,
and the virtual cocpit has more detail. There are now sepapate downloads
for FSX and FS2004. The camouflage textures for 'Clare' are more accurate.

This FSX version is in the 'native' FSX model format.

The Flight Dynamics have been improved, it is no longer necessary to
trim the aircraft for takeoff!
----

Installation:

Just run the included setup program.


----

Sounds: The stock Douglas DC-3 sounds are used. Replace with
more interesting propliner sounds if you wish.

----

The gauges are to a large extent default gauges of Flight
Simulator 2004, a few of them modified for four engines.
Magneto switches, starter buttons, prop feathering buttons
and engine gauges are based on public domain gauges by
Mike (MoparMike) Wagner, converted to XML by Jens B. Kristensen.

----

This plane was originally made in may 2004 with FSDS 2.24,
this new version with FSDS 3.5.1; textures with Paint Shop Pro
and DxtBmp, panel with FS Panel Studio.

It is freeware and must stay that way.

Good luck flying the Short Empire!
