Aeroplane Heaven releases de Havilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk for MSFS

De Havilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk is now available for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Developer Aeroplane Heaven brings us the de Havilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk for Microsoft Flight Simulator. The Chipmunk is a two-seat, single-engined trainer aircraft developed after the Second World War being initially employed as a replacement for the de Havilland Tiger Moth. 1,284 Chipmunks were produced between 1947 to 1956 with the first prototype taking to the skies in 1946.

Primary users of the Chipmunk were The Royal Canadian Airforce, Royal Air Force and Portuguese Air Force. In the Chipmunks later years, many were sold off to private owners mainly for its aerobatic performance and excellent flying characteristics.

Aeroplane Heaven’s rendition of the Chipmunk features high-fidelity models with excellent attention to detail. It features highly custom flight dynamics and performance and a high-quality WWise sound package. It comes with many special effects and unique code to iron out the default MSFS poor tail dragger performance.

The variant Aeroplane Heaven has depicted is the British-built long canopy and bubble canopy versions (T.10), these were the most common variants in service and still fly in the skies today with many aero clubs and private owners around the world.

The de Havilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk can be purchased from the Aeroplane Heaven website for $28.95. Alternatively, it can also be purchased from third-party vendors such as Orbx and SimMarket.
