Convair 580 (Frontier Airlines)

Matsumoto Airport
Taking off from Matsumoto Airport

I found the plane a pleasure to fly. You cruise along at about 200 knots and there's not too much high tech nav gear to worry about. The included pilot's notes are helpful - especially on landing !

An excellent vcp with the main gauges working and readable.


From the readme.txt :

" This is an all-new simulation model created from scratch using AutoCAD and gMAX. All textures are original and were created in PhotoShop. All gauges are stock FS2002 gauges and should not cause any display problems. Default Beech Kingair sound files were also used. I recommend down loading Lockheed C-130 or P-3 Orion sound files.

They all use the same engine. These should be available where you downloaded this file. The 2D and 3D panels are also original and use photos from real Convair 580's. The model includes many working parts as well as a working "airstair"."
