Flight1 releases DC-9 Classic for Flight Simulator X: Leave computers at the gate!

Flight1 is pleased to announce the release of a new product that makes flying simple and lets you optimise your flying skills in radio navigation!

Fly using pilot skill and radio navigation. The DC-9 Classic frees you from computer control to and from any location in Flight Simulator X!

The DC-9, built by the Douglas Aircraft Company, is a twin-engine, single-aisle, short to medium range jet airliner. The DC-9-30 is capable of carrying over 100 passengers, cruises at around 570 mph/910 km/h and has a range of about 1600 nautical miles (3000km). This ‘modern Classic’ is now brought to life for Flight Simulator X.

The DC-9 Classic is the third product released by Coolsky with Flight1, following the huge success of the Super 80 and Super 80 Professional releases.

The DC-9 Classic is a state of the art simulation of the Douglas DC-9-30 aircraft for Flight Simulator X and represents a new level of realism, simulation accuracy, graphics quality and included features.

The DC-9 Classic enables you to fly computer-free - its Integrated Cockpit Training System and Radio Navigation Simulator systems will get you up and running in no time.

Fly in a fully operational virtual cockpit, and take your pilot skills to the max. Each flight is supported by the DC-9 Classic Flight Center, with its super-detailed Failure System.

The DC-9 Classic’s integrated Cockpit Training system takes you step-by-step through your training to fly this stunning aircraft.
