Record-breaking Hughes H-1 Racer Released for MSFS

Once a world speed record holder, the Hughes H-1 Racer is now available in Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Developers HCG Digital Arts Ltd announced their release is “our rendition of the original H-1 Racer. We did our best to capture as many of the original H-1’s features and specs as we could, but also added a variety of custom/creative additions as well.”

Having set both a world airspeed record and transcontinental speed record across the USA in the 1930s, the aircraft has truly established itself in the history books of iconic aircraft.

With 4K PBR textures, checklists, computational fluid dynamics and a whole host of features, simmers can have a fun time flying back through the ages (and at record speeds to boot).

You can purchase your copy of the Hughes H-1 Racer at simmarket.com for EUR14.48 (excluding VAT).

Having grown up a stone's throw away from Manchester Airport, Jordan had no choice but to love aviation and all things planes. With the help of flight simulators, namely FSX and more recently Xplane 11, he eventually muddled his way to sitting behind the controls of the real thing on a daily basis.
