Messerschmitt Bf 108 B 'TAIFUN'

The Messerschmitt Bf 108 Taifun is arguably one of the most influential touring aircraft designs of the 1930s that set the benchmark back then and has not been bypassed in performance by most contemporary aircraft in it's class up until today. This iconic piece of aviation history is now avaliable for Microsoft Flight Simulator X as a faithful reproduction of German period aviation technology. All systems and instruments have been recreated based on the oldest flying Messerschmitt aircraft world-wide, the Bf 108 B D-EBFW with it's historically restored VFR panel. Additionally there are seven more paint schemes of historical and currently operable Bf 108 included as well as an alternative panel instrumentation based on the historical blind flying equipment with the addition of some modern Navigation Radios. The Aerodynamics, Stability and Control have been developed based on current real world flight data using the next gereration of AvHistory's Flight Model V 5.00.1 what makes possible a not yet in PC-Simulation experienced organic depth in depicting the fundamental principles of flying through air.
New in Service Pack 1: A new Manager Interface allows real-time control over fuel and visible passengers, enables quick access to commonly used simulation commands and to a external new heating aggregate that facilitiates engine start in cold climates.

" A sporty little Oldtimer that fully convinces both aeronautically and in it's detail richness. Predicate: precious!"
