Aerosoft Douglas DC-8 Released

Douglas Dc8 (9)

Aerosoft has released their latest aircraft for Prepar3D; the Douglas DC-8. This is an aircraft that is credited with bringing long-distance air travel to the average Joe Public, and so it holds firmly a place in the history books.

The DC-8 takes our modern flight simming back to the days of pure piloting skill, and as such you won’t find an FMC or Navigation Display in this cockpit, nor is there the existence of an auto-throttle. This aircraft gives the flight crew plenty to occupy themselves with.

Aerosoft’s DC-8 simulates the DC-8-50 model, with an accurate 3D modelling of the cockpit, exterior, and all control surfaces. Said cockpit includes highly detailed instrumentation and equipment in the Captain, First Officer, as well as Flight Engineer positions.

Rain effects on the windshield are provided by TFDi’s TrueGlass technology, and the sounds throughout the aircraft are provided by Turbine Sound Studios who have a proven track record of providing an immersive experience through audio.

For a full feature list, click through to the Aerosoft store where this aircraft is available for $42.99.
