Announced on Xbox Wire just moments ago, Microsoft has released the new Ford 4-AT Trimotor for Microsoft Flight Simulator.
The Ford 4-AT Trimotor is an aviator’s dream machine: an all-metal, high-wing, three-engine passenger, and cargo aircraft. Built ruggedly, it can operate out of some of the world’s most austere airfields, and due to its renowned forgivingness in the air, the Trimotor elevates pilot confidence to new heights.
The Trimotor is powered by three 300-horsepower, 9-cylinder Wright J-6-9 Whirlwind radial piston engines, each turning a 2-blade, fixed-pitch propeller. What is unique is that one of the engines is mounted right under the nose of the aeroplane. With a range of 570 miles, it will offer some cool short flights at a maximum speed of 132 miles per hour.
The Ford 4-AT Trimotor is available today for one week FREE to simmers; starting on June 30 at 11:59 PM PDT, it will be available for $14.99.
