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.

The Prototype: The Spitfire needs little introduction to aviation enthusiasts. The Subject of this release is the Mark 1a (Rotol). A few Squadrons (notably 54 Squadron) received Spitfire Mk1a’s fitted with Rotol Variable Speed Propellers which unlike the De Havilland 2 Speed unit, fitted to many Mk1a’s was designed to allow a range of changes to the Prop RPM’s. The new unit gave a rather blunt appearance to the front end. Many of the MKII Spits had them also. This is a separate and self contained Add On. See Included USER GUIDE for more details.
