Taking advantage of SimConnect, available with FSX SP2, we have modeled true fuel dumping of the auxiliary tanks, just as the original aircraft did. Each control is faithfully modeled from actual drawings and using custom XML animations, operates as they would in the actual aircraft. Two versions of the Model 12 are offered, the 12A and the C-40A.
The Model 12A represents the aircraft as it might have been in the late 1950’s or 60’s owned perhaps by a wealthy business man or a small commercial venture. With a full IFR cockpit the simulator pilot will be able to experience all aspects of flight from shooting ILS approaches at a major airport to back woods dusty strips. The VC cabin is fully modeled as well. Step on in and grab a seat and appreciate the view that one might have had as a passenger in the Golden Age of Flight.
