Golden Age Stinson Model A
Bookmark and Share

Dubbed “Americas Fastest Tri-Motor” the Model A was the Stinson Aircraft Company’s last tri-motor, designed, in 1933, as a low wing monoplane, eight seat feeder-liners for American Airways (now American Airlines). Featuring an unusual double-tapered wing that, combined with its tubby fuselage and forward-raked windscreen, gave it a markedly sinister appearance, it also boasted retractable landing gear that left the lower part of the wheels exposed below the engine nacelles while in the raised position, as many pilots forgot to lower the undercarriage on landing. Passengers were seated in two rows of three and a paired seat behind the enclosed cockpit, while fitted aft were a hold for 500 of luggage and freight, and that ultimate luxury for the time, an on-board lavatory.

A total of 30 Stinson Model As were built until production ceased in 1936. It was one of many promising designs whose commercial success was cut short by the introduction of the stressed-skin Boeing 247 and Douglas DC-2.

Golden Age Simulations brings back to life this graceful and unique airliner. The model is complete with a custom gauge package and once again unites the talents of our designers with Aaron Swindle of Sky Song Soundworks. Aaron has created for the model a unique soundfile that duplicates the sound of the three Lycoming R-680 radial engines. Our model is fully animated and includes at no additional cost is the Model A 2-W; a variant designed for Airlines of Australia and flown throughout the 1940’s.


For FS2004.
