We are excited to announce that we have entered into a design collaboration with FlyingIron Simulations. Using our detailed interior design, they will be producing the most accurate simulation of the Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IX for X-Plane to date. For those of you who are unfamiliar with their work, head on over to the X-Plane.org store to check out their magnificent P-47N Thunderbolt.
For their debut project this design house has tackled one of the most complex system WWII aircraft. All systems are functional and the artwork is a thing of beauty.
Hence we can think of no better team to tackle this challenge. This will make available to operators of the Heritage Flight Simulation Spitfire another option besides DCS World. It will allow pilots to experience flying the Spitfire in their own environs, no matter where they are based. For museums who would be operating the simulator the cost of a professional licence for X-Plane runs at a once off payment of $750. This in contrast to the DCS World quoted figure of €250 PER MONTH for professional operators!
Now the DCS World Spitfire is a fine simulation, and very reasonable for private users at just a once off payment of $50. But we are extremely pleased that we will soon have more options available to our customers!
