PILOT’S Bringing Clipper to MSFS, Coming Soon


Those of you who use Prepar3D may have spent the past few months flying the Boeing Clipper. However, PILOT’S has confirmed and previewed that the Boeing B314 Clipper will be coming to Microsoft Flight Simulator. The classic aircraft has a rich and unique history that makes it a true icon of the skies. The first commercial flight took place in 1939 flying from San Francisco to Hong Kong on the Foreign Air Mail Route.

Following the airframe’s initial success, PanAm would take delivery of 9 airframes in total, initially running them on other lucrative long-haul mail and passenger services. Sadly, after WWII and a relatively short military career, the Boeing B314 Clipper would go on to find itself having become obsolete. The final scheduled PanAm Clipper service was operated in 1946, with BOAC, the only other airline to use them, following suit in 1948.

The previews shared by PILOT’S on Facebook show the aircraft over the Statue of Liberty of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco with the sun glowing in the background. Alongside that, the team confirmed that the aircraft will be “coming soon” to the simulator. No further details were shared at this time. This means we don’t know if it will feature the complexities of the original version released earlier this year or if PILOT’S will opt for the “Basic” version they released just a few weeks ago. The “Basic” version removed some of the complexities, whilst retaining the highly detailed modelling and accurate flight dynamics.

Is this an aircraft you’re interested in flying in Microsoft Flight Simulator? Will you replicate some of those historic routes?
