The A2A Wings of Silver Stratocruiser is unlike any aircraft you have flown
in Microsoft Flight Simulator.
The Boeing Stratocruiser is a double-deck, pressurized, four-engine, medium
to long range, high altitude, high speed, commercial transport plane. The
airplane is designed for a normal gross weight of 147,000 pounds, a high speed
of approximately 350 mph, a service ceiling of 34,000 feet, and a maximum range
of approximately 4,000 miles. To its passengers, it flew them in first class
comfort higher, faster, and farther than anything before.
The 377 paved Boeing's entry into the airline business, and you can still see
this technology in use today. The Stratocruiser and its massive Pratt & Whitney
R4360 engines, represents the highest step in the evolution of aircraft
piston-engine technology. These engines were so powerful, that this huge
Stratocruiser set the transcontinental speed record from Seattle to D.C.;
beating both the Lockheed Constellation and the North American P51 Mustang. Even
by today's standards this aircraft has amazing performance.
We also created the Pregnant Guppy that was custom-made to transport rocket
components for the Saturn V to NASA. You have to see it fly to believe it.
A2A Simulations has crafted and pioneered many new technologies for this
aircraft which has become the flagship of the Wings of Silver line for Microsoft
Flight Simulator X. Never before has the team worked so diligently to produce
what we feel, and you may agree, is the most accurate representation of a true
Designed and created by Boeing, the world's premier large 4-engined aircraft
Four crew positions - pilot, co-pilot, flight engineer, and navigator. Fully
modeled and functioning positions constructed with down to the rivet detail.
The 3,500 horsepower Pratt & Whitney R4360, the world's most powerful piston
aircraft engine ever produced.
See the world like you have never seen it before through 19 cockpit windows
for unprecedented visibility.
Fly high and fast. Fly above the bad weather and cover the ground at 350 mph.
Double-decker airliner carries almost 100 passengers in first class comfort
on a level never seen before or since.
As with every A2A aircraft, it is gorgeously constructed, inside and out,
down to the last rivet.
Built to be flown "By The Book."
Fully clickable cockpits with authentically working systems and gauges.
The latest wind-tunnel technology creates fluid flying qualities.
3D Lights 'M' (built directly into the model.)
* Red, rotating double sided mechanical beacon.
* Under-wing landing lights than can be turned on, deployed, and retracted.
* Pulsing navigation lights.
* Nose-gear mounted taxi light that even shoots a downward beam from the
undercarriage doors as it deploys.
* Red passing light.
* Passenger and cockpit lighting for stunning visuals at dawn, dusk, and night.
* Natural 3D appearance with exceptional performance.
* Smooth movements.
Real-time Load Manager, with the ability to load individual passengers or
Historically accurate Eclipse-Pioneer PB-10 (autopilot) which looks and
functions like the original. Twist the hand lever to bank, scroll wheel to
adjust pitch, and toggle "Altitude Hold" switch.
Auto-Mixture that actually performs as intended. Now you can set for
"auto-rich" or "auto-lean" and the aircraft fuel to air ratio will be
automatically determined and set by the carburetor based upon various factors
such as altitude.
Extensive Fire Extinguisher system with fully functioning overheard panel and
On-board Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) to power systems with engines off and not
drain the battery.
Cabin pressurization system controls. You control the target altitude and the
rate of pressure change and the system authentically displays and manages cabin
Hydraulically powered steerable taxi wheel, brakes, emergency brakes, rudder
boost, and windshield wipers.
Bulging tires when placed on the ground with weight.
The famous Pregnant Guppy aircraft included with authentic cockpit, systems,
Five different liveries including Northwest Airlines, British Overseas
Airways Corporation, United Overseas Airlines, Pan American Airlines and Aero
Spacelines (Pregnant Guppy).
All models include A2A Simulations leading bump mapping and spectacular
Pop-up 2D clip board to help calculate center of gravity, ground speed and
other important factors for flying.
Custom Navigator's map accessible via keystroke or the Navigators station.
Authentic A2A Simulations 3D engineered sound for FSX.
