Aircraft developer FlyingIron has experience developing aircraft for multiple flight simulators with Spitfire IX, P-38L, P-47N and Grob G109B for X-Plane 11, an in-development A-7 for DCS World, and now a Spitfire IX for Microsoft Flight Simulator. As of today, their Spitfire IX for MSFS has been released. Here are the details!
FlyingIron already has built a detailed Spitfire IX for X-Plane and turning around and doing a Microsoft Flight Simulator model seems to have been a slam dunk for the small developer. Here are some key features:
- Highly detailed 3D model with cockpit interior modeled using CAD information
- Sound package developed with Wwise and were professionally recorded from a real Spitfire
- Detailed flight model and realistic start-up and systems procedures including failures
- Standard and clipped wing variants
