The B-17 Flying Fortress
Whilst many amazing aircraft were released at this crucial time, it was very important that the aircraft that did hit the markets were genuinely going to help solidify and improve the entire world of aircraft and flight; with the help of the B-17 this was easily achieved. Today, thanks to the advancements made during the war, aviation is much further ahead than even the most optimistic people would have though.
Known as the “Flying Fortress” this mobile battle station was one of the most impressive models of its time, and its style totally changed the way that aircraft would typically be designed. Its massive size and bulky frame ensure that it carried a lot more firepower than your traditional aircraft, and helped to become a key part of the future moving forward –this remake of the B-17 gives you all of these awesome features in a style and manner that you can easily take advantage of and enjoy for years to come. Alongside the rather comical wartime classic “Memphis Belle” and other various promotional goods, this aircraft was made to give the same rigid power and uncompromising dominance that the B-17 carried into every single flight.
However, unlike many modern creations the B-17 was more than just hype and bluster – this actually brought a huge amount of changes and improvements to the way that aviation would be looked at and improved for years to come. Including the publicity officers, there could be up to 11 members of staff on any B-17, meaning that they required a full squad to manage and prepare effectively – this was one of the main reasons that it rose to prominence – no aircraft had ever attempted this before in the past.
Offering a hugely rugged structure that could take a beating and a large amount of functionality inside in terms of how the aircraft would move and fire, the B-!7 quickly established itself as one of the main vanguard for any attacks that would be carried out by Allied forces. The massive armor and strength of these flying fortresses meant that they had a higher record than any other aircraft during the war of taking damage and being able to make it back in one piece – in short, they were supremely well condition and were equipped for dealing with just about any problem.
However, its real power came from the immense stability of the design – it was responsive and simple to maneuver, providing the pilot with a level of functionality and response they probably weren’t expecting to receive from such a large, powerful piece of machinery.
Designed to absolute perfection – every last detail that has been included has been taken from the actual designs and shapes of the aircraft itself using official specifications and documents to get every last piece of equipment in place. A truly authentic recreation of one of the most powerful WW2 aircraft
Made to fit usual A2A standards – this has all of the right fittings parts included so that any enthusiasts of the aircraft will be able to cover their proverbial checklists – nothing has been left to chance, with every possible inclusion and detail added in there for truly authentic accuracy & precision
Accuracy in the layout and format of the overall makeup of the aircraft – from the span of the wings to the length of the cockpit – which has been designed to absolute perfection, giving you the most representative design and ensuring you have every feature that you could possibly need
Designed by-the-book – A2A Simulations take authenticity very seriously and it’s apparent of this rendition of the B-17. Everything that could be need to help improve your flight experience or make things that little bit more realistic has been added in for the most prominent and dynamic effects possible
All of the small features required to really make the cockpit feel unique and interesting have been added; this is one of the most prominent ways of ensure that your aircraft education is going to be the very best that it can be. For example, if you decide to use the small compass icon on the dashboard then you will receive access to the co-pilots panel, giving you more control than in the past!
Various smaller additions to help you really get to grips with the aircraft and fly it to its full potential – it might be from the Second World War, but this is an aircraft with incredible strength and potential – if you want to see just how hard the pilots had it back in the Second World War, you will want to try this out. Everything from the way that it handles in the air to the difficulty of take-off has been worked on
Many key additions to help the aircraft feel unique and removed from the usual vanilla aircraft in FSX – this helps you fly with your own style and include a unique personality on each and every flight that you carry out
Massively improved flight dynamics for the aircraft to make sure that the aircraft flies appropriate to something of that size – this helps you really get to grips with how the aircraft would have moved in the real world as well as how you can expect the positives and negatives of the aircraft to balance out the experience
Give yourself the kind of balance required as quickly as possible, using an A2A creation that looks and feels like the real thing – unique calculations are made in the background, whilst challenging you to understand the full procedure of flying an aircraft – not just the buttons FSX requires you to press!
Looking for a way to enjoy the world of flight simulation even more? Then you simply need to use the ACCU-SIM addition that comes with this package. ACCU-SIM is an A2A Simulations add-on that helps to completely revolutionize the way that FSX operates. Having been built around the idea that your flight simulation should be as accurate as it possibly can, and after many years of hard work and invention, this is the perfect package for anyone who feels like FSX simply does not challenge them enough – by adding in the power of reality, you can get the best flight simulation experience ever.
It’s been made nice and simple for everyone to be able to enjoy the unique quirks that make an aircraft unique – previously, even totally different aircraft could feel a little bit too similar when using a flight simulator.

It helps to bring the most authentic, exhilarating and enjoyable simulation of any aircraft out there to FSX by revamping what is in effect the entire engine. This allows you to fly the B-17 in a way that the real world could only have hoped for in the past.

This is vitally important as it’s these little additions that really make a flight simulation feel enjoyable – whilst the vanilla FSX software is very well made, it’s nowhere near as effective as it could be.

If you are looking for an easy way to try and get everything put in place, this might be what you’ve been looking for; it adds an element of risk to proceedings and can cause your aircraft to go through various issues during flight.
Engine overheating, extensive structural damage and even permanent flight issues such as hanging to one side can become an issue just through poor flight management – these are the kinds of situations and questions that are asked of pilots in the real world, and ensure that you will need to be at your very best to get the right kind of solution at the end. Improve your flight education and see just how well you are learning as time goes on with the help of ACCU-SIM, adding another layer of authenticity to the FSX engine piece-by-piece.
Designed to make sure that all users are able to get the most enjoyable experience possible from their FSX edition – whilst the vanilla product is impressive, ACCU-SIM adds that extra layer of reality that can make becoming a better pilot so much easier in the long-term
Moving away from the generic B-17 styles that other mods can give you, ACCU-SIM adds a whole new layer of experience into proceedings; you’ll never have taken on a flight like this in the past, not with the incredible realism that characterizes the design and style of any ACCU-SIM release
Massive attention to detail to make sure that ACCU-SIM represents the aircraft properly; with great precision being put in place to make sure that your aircraft performs to the correct standards, you’ll never feel like you are flying anything but the B-17 as every characteristic and feature stands out prominently

I have been wanting to add a quality B-17 to my virtual hanger. I did plenty of research before making my choice. This model is the best! The graphics are superb! It took me a little while to get used to the co-pilot talking in my ear. The effects are the best I have experienced in a payware plane. When the engine overheats and catches fire, you cut the throttle, feather the prop, and engage the fire extinguisher. And when the plane crashes or you bend a prop, you end up in the hanger where your crew chief shows you what you damaged and what needs to be fixed. Cool! The download was very easy, as was the install. I was up and flying about fifteen minutes after the download was completed. And after comparing various websites, you had the best price. Thanks!
