Chasing Windmills: Golden Age Simulations Pitcairn Package for FSX

In 2007 Golden age Simulations first released the Pitcairn PCA-2 for FS 2004 and shortly there after an FSX import. The package was met with good reviews for the FS2004 version but the FSX model was problematic, but by in larger acceptable. This would have been the end of the story for our quixotic adventure into modeling the Windmill Airplane had it not been for a fan of the model to which a promise was made to “eventually” create an FSX native version of the PCA-2. The conversion process began in earnest in August of 2011. This fan of the project played an active role in the process. This package showcases a completely new model of the autogiro, the Pitcairn PA-18 which has been designed from the ground up as a FSX native aircraft. Included in the package as well is the FSX Native version of our previously released PCA-2 for FS 2004 but in this case it was essentially taken apart and put back together to be fully compatible for FSX. The PA-18 has been faithfully modeled to represent the only flying version of this or any fixed rotor autogiro in the world today. It features a fully detailed and animated VC cockpit with 3 liveries. The PCA-2 comes with 5 liveries, two of which have never been released; Amelia Earhart’s Beechnut and the fanciful livery flown by the Howard Hughes character in the movie “The Rocketeer”. Both models take full advantage of FSX enhancements including high resolution textures, dynamic shine and bump mapping. This package has been fully tested in all versions of FSX. None of these models are backward compatible with any previous version of MS Flight Simulator.
