Product information "Wings of Silver B377 Stratocruiser"
The A2A Wings of Silver Stratocruiser is unlike any aircraft you have flown in Microsoft Flight Simulator X.
The Boeing Stratocruiser is a double-deck, pressurised, four-engine, medium to long range, high altitude, high speed, commercial transport plane. The aircraft is designed for a normal gross weight of 147,000 pounds, a high speed of approximately 350 mph, a service ceiling of 34,000 feet, and a maximum range of approximately 4,000 miles. To its passengers, it flew them in first class comfort higher, faster, and farther than anything before.
What is Captain of the Ship? Real pilots will tell you that no two aircraft are the same. Even taking the same aircraft up from the same airport to the same location will result in a different experience. For example, you may notice one day an engine is running a bit hotter than usual and you might just open your cowl flaps a bit more and be on your way, or maybe this is a sign of something more serious developing under the hood. Regardless, you expect these things to occur in a simulation just as they do in real life. This is Accu-sim – it puts the gauge back in the game.
Realism does not mean having a difficult time with your flying. While Captain of the Ship is created by pilots, it is built for everyone. This means everything from having a professional crew there to help you manage the systems, to an intuitive layout, or just the ability to turn the system on or off with a single switch. However, if damage is enabled and the needles are in the red, there will be consequences. It is no longer just an aircraft, it’s a simulation.
