H.C.B.C Recommended software’s for Classic pilot’s

A2A Simulations do have good software, with a good feel not only flight dynamics but also sound and systems. It is made by very skilled people in the industry. They are really good at the enhancement of realism, immersion and entertainment. They are creating professional level simulations for training and the home flight simulation hobbyist supporting the Flight Simulator X, Lockheed Prepar3d platforms plus more.

You can Make Your Own, or fly a certified Dc-3 sim 

you can rent a Classic full size sim, Dc-3 if you travel to  Koningin Wilhelminaweg 449,
3737 BE Groenekan, in The Netherlands.

The DC-3 simulator is a great tool to make training for DC-3 pilots safer, more realistic and will prepare pilots better for real equipment failures. Training on the real aircraft is hard on the most important pieces of equipment; the engines. Another reason why having a DC-3 simulator is a great asset, is all about costs. In a DC-3 simulator you can train pilots until proficiency for a fraction of the costs.
MPS is granted the operator status and the DC-3 simulator is FTD-2 certified, the highest possible approval level from EASA, to maximize affordable training possibilities on the DC-3 simulator.

X-Plane 11: Freeware Plane – AMAZING Douglas C-47 (DC-3)

This plane is an amazing recreation of one of the most important commerical planes ever built. It has *some* kinks that need to be worked out still but it’s an amazing experience! ( this was made for FSX /P3D but is imported to X-plane ) so some this is beta but still a cool thing for X-plane.

PMDG – DC-6 Cloudmaster (P3D/x-plane )

In June 2016, PMDG released the Douglas DC-6 Cloudmaster for X-Plane, their first foray into that platform. Early in the summer of 2017, the same classic airplane was released for FSX and P3D. Quite a bit different from the Boeing airliners PMDG released the last couple of years, so let’s see how they did.
Douglas initially developed the DC-6 in response to a WWII USAAF requirement for a lengthened and pressurized version of the DC-4/C-54. Too late for the war, the aircraft was further developed for the civilian market, intended to compete with the Lockheed Constellation. The DC-6 first flew in 1946, and 704 examples in different variants were built before production ended in 1958. The DC-6 was further developed into the DC-7, but generally outlived its younger but less reliable stable mate. The PMDG DC-6 Cloudmaster models 2 variants: the DC-6A (cargo) and DC-6B (passenger).

The Constellation was used as a civil airliner and as a military and civilian air transport, seeing service in the Berlin and the Biafran airlifts. The Constellation series was the first pressurized-cabin civil airliner series to go into widespread use. Its pressurized cabin enabled large numbers of commercial passengers to fly well above most bad weather for the first time, thus significantly improving the general safety and ease of air-travel.[1] Three of them served as the presidential aircraft for Dwight D. Eisenhower.

The Aviator (2004))

Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Howard Hughes, the billionaire, the filmmaker, the recluse and The Aviator.

After inheriting his father’s machine tool company, the young Howard Hughes discovers he can combine his passions–flying, moviemaking and women–by coming to Hollywood. In 1930, while building one of the world’s largest aviation companies, Hughes produces Hell’s Angels, a perfectionist’s homage to World War I flyers. The man who eventually produces almost 30 films shocks society with The Outlaw, starring buxom Jane Russell, builds the world’s largest airplane, sets the world speed record and invents the half-cup bra.

Flight of the Phoenix (2004)

On it’s own this is a great action film about survival in the desert. If you’re not familiar with the original one don’t fret. This one is almost as good. A team of oil workers are flying across the desert when they encounter a violent sandstorm that sends them hurtling down into the desert. Next is the fight for survival. How they do it is one for the books. The female actress in not a romantic interest and instead is just one of the guys, which I appreciated. Great story and cast.
Highly recommend this one. If you enjoyed the first one, don’t compare this one. If you enjoyed this one, don’t compare the original. Watch each on its own merit and you’ll find them both enjoyable. Audio and video quality are consisstent throughout.

Amelia (2009)

An extraordinary life of adventure, celebrity and continuing mystery comes to light in “Amelia,” a vast, thrilling account of legendary aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart. After becoming the first woman to fly across the Atlantic, Amelia was thrust into a new role as America’s sweetheart — the legendary “goddess of light,” known for her bold, larger-than-life charisma. Yet, even with her global fame solidified, her belief in flirting with danger and standing up as her own, outspoken woman never changed. She was an inspiration to people everywhere, from First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt to the men closest to her heart: her husband, promoter and publishing magnate George P. Putnam, and her long time friend and lover, pilot Gene Vidal. In the summer of 1937, Amelia set off on her most daunting mission yet: a solo flight around the world that she and George both anxiously foresaw as destined, whatever the outcome, to become one of the most talked-about journeys in history.
