      Description

      Manufacturer's Description

      The Constellation, with its beautiful curving lines and triple tails was a product of 1930s America and the headlong dash for superiority in wartime aviation technology. The aircraft embodies the power and the romance of the large piston-engined airliners of this period.

      With 11 aircraft supplied in three model types and a complete Flight Engineer's station, radio station and Co-pilot's station, Constellation Professional is the ultimate Constellation package. Models inlcuded are the C-69 Military Transport Prototype, the C-69/L-049A, and the L-049A first production type.

      A complete Virtual Cockpit is modelled and the flight model has been tested by real-world Constellation pilots. A replica of a typical cabin is included to provide a taste of what life was like aboard these great airliners.

      Constellation Professional has been developed by Aeroplane Heaven exclusively for FSX (SP2 & DX10 Preview compatible) and makes use of the all-new FSX graphics features to amazing effect.
