Aeroplane Heaven Releases Grumman F3F-2 for MSFS

The historic Grumman F3F-2 is now available for Microsoft Flight Simulator thanks to Aeroplane Heaven.

Developer Aeroplane Heaven has kick-started the year with the release of their Grumman F3F-2 for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

The Grumman F3F was first produced back in the 1930s as a fighter aircraft that served during World War II. It was retired in 1943 but remained in the hearts of many for long since. The F3F-2 specifically has a single 950 horse powered engine that was built specifically for the US Navy. The aircraft itself can fly at a cruise speed of 150mph for 980nm.

Aeroplane Heaven is known for its detailed aircraft and the Grumman F2F-2 is no exception to that cause. Authentic cockpit details that are designed to feel ‘old’, along with bespoke animations help make this a realistic rendition of the iconic aircraft. In addition, Aeroplane Heaven has made the exterior model just as beautiful that were designed thanks to drawings and plans from the original aircraft.

Users will have a choice between electric and cartridge start options. All of this is accompanied by accurate flight dynamics based on real flight tests. Finally, Aeroplane Heaven has included a custom WWise Hi-Fidelity sound pack.

You can buy Aeroplane Heaven’s Grumman F3F-2 from their store for $28.95. Just note that the Aeroplane Heaven store does not accept UK/EU customers. If you’re in the EU or UK, you will be able to buy the Grumman F3F-2 from simMarket (and other stores soon) for €25.62.
