Blimps

  • It would be really cool to have an airship on the aerofly FS 4/global, I don't know, on the Hindenburg or the Goodyear GZ-20 or even the Airlander 10, which is still in the certification process and should be authorized to carry out commercial flights in 2026

  • I am happy to help lift the blimp from the FS 2 version to the FS4 version. Unfortunately, I don't have the Boston edition of TrimSoftSim. If someone provides me with the object data of the blimp and the associated TSC file, I will be happy to customise it.

    Tschüss, Michael (🍎🚁)

  • Hello Michael - I have the original zip file, it was a payware release on simmarket. There is a review of the software on flight-sim.org, but nothing else. I explored the zip, but I could not find any reference to blimp, airship, or goodyear. I will have another look tomorrow. There was a readme with a support link for email, but now I can't find it. Time for bed, I think.

    Take a look in your box ;)

    Thank you for your kind offer. I think I have found a way for those who have purchased the software (or are still purchasing it?) to be able to use the airship and perhaps more of the FS 2 software in FS 4.:)


    Tschüss, Michael


    So, for everyone who has this software...

    ... I have a solution to make the Goodyear Zeppelin fly in FS 4:


    (1) Download the attached file, unzip it and paste it into the "airports" directory in the FS 4 user folder:

    • .../Aerofly FS 4/scenery/airports/us/bosten_addon_goodyearblimp_animated

    (2) The blue files from the ZIP file below ...

    ... are empty placeholders that must now be replaced by copying the original files from "TRISOFTSIM - AEROFLY FS2 - BOSTON" from the folder

    • us_boston_ma_v1.1/places/animation.


    Good luck.8)

  • I realized when I tried it that I do not have the sim market 1.1 version and therefore the files were not named the same as your example. (I found a couple of blimp files in the pois1 sub directory). I think mine must be the 1.0 or freeware version that preceded the commercial release. However it still works fine in my FS2 install so thanks again for pointing out where I had seen it before. I also love the Pride of America ship that is there. I have been on that vessel a couple of times around Hawaii.

    In the subdirectory "pois1" there are these two blimp files, but they have nothing to do with the flying Goodyear-Blimp:

    The affected files are located in version 1.1 here:
