    Original Sound files by Dan Hopgood

    Dom Henry and I have collaborated on quite a few aircraft projects for X-Plane11, where I created the external model and cockpit shell, and Dom created the cockpit, the sounds and physics. A special thank you to Dom for letting me use his cockpit work, without which it is unlikely the project would have ever been completed

    A special thank you to Bertrand too, for the use of his pilot figures. It’s a difficult thing to create pilot figures that look human without using a lot of polys. He has created a number of these figures, that Dom and I have used in our aircraft and we’re very grateful to him for it.

    Thanks to Dan Hopgood for the use of his Spitfire sound files. The default Corsair sounds just wouldn’t have been as good for this Aircraft Add on, being an In line engine rather than a radial.

    Installation: This assumes you’re familiar with basic file management tasks. If you need more help try asking for help on the IPACS Aerofly forum.

    The Prototype: The Spitfire needs little introduction to aviation enthusiasts. It’s Design was led by Reginald Mitchell, drawing on his experience in the design of his companies Schneider Trophy Racing Seaplanes. The design was a thoroughly modern for its time and the quality of it is shown by the fact that it went through over Twenty Mark/ Variants during World War II and subsequent years, and yet they were all obviously Spitfires. The main changes where structural to accommodate more powerful engines, and larger tail surfaces to cater for the extra torque. The Subject of this release is the Mark 1a… The version most associated with the Battle of Britain in 1940. As a Fighter it was easily a match for its chief protagonist, The Messerschmitt BF109E. Both designs had there strengths and weakness, and good pilots learnt to exploit them. Much has been written about the wartime history of this aircraft and if you’re interested you can find a lot of such information on the net. None of it matters of course for us, flying it in Aerofly FS4, which is not a Combat Simulator but a Flight Simulator.

  • Hi Matt

    Your great Spitfire has just arrived in Switzerland. Thank you very much!

    I am admiring people who are able to create such an aircraft for a flightsimulator. To be honest I have no idea how it is done but I can imagine that this is a very demanding piece of work which needs beisde of the necessary indepth knowhow of 3D programms and scripting a lot of patience, tests and many, many hours of development. In the end you let us fly with it, for free. I think people like you and also the people who build airports or photoscenery are vital for Aerofly FS. Also your presentation here of your masterpeice and the manuals are extraordinary.

    Best regards,
