For pilots of a certain vintage, this classic aircraft was one of the most popular and commonly used of its time. It took to the skies in the first time in 1935, before it was transformed into the PBY-5A amphibian edition.

This add-on looks to capture the rich heart of the PBY Catalina and make sure you can experience it first-hand from the comfort of the cockpit.

With various roles served by the aircraft over time, it quickly became an essential part of the anti-submarine patrols that were needed.

Today, though, we often see the Catalina appearing at air shows and other similar events, showing us just how it left a mark on the aviation world. While it's by no means still active today, it's an aircraft that holds positive memories for a good many pilots.
