Pilot's Releases B314 For Prepar3D


Calling all Vintage Aircraft Aviators!

Today marks a major milestone for PILOT'S and the B314 Development Team!

PILOT'S, the well-known Austrian flightsim add-on developer andpublisher, is pleased to announce that the long awaited aircraftadd-on for P3Dv4.x and P3Dv5.x - "Boeing B314 - The Clipper" - has nowbeen released and is immediately available at the PILOT'S OnlineStore.

Known as the absolute quintessential flying boat, the majesticBoeing B314 Clipper is an unmistakable icon of the flying boatera. Foynes, Ireland, well-known for its claim to fame for being thebirthplace of Irish coffee during this time, served as an aviation hubbetween North America and Europe, and with the highly anticipated B314from PILOT'S, virtual pilots too can now recreate the many Atlanticcrossings that made the fleet of Pan Am Clippers famous.


Although none of the original 12 Clipper aircraft were preserved,the inspiration to create this PILOT'S study level representation ofthe B314 is to allow this majestic flying machine to yet again take tothe skies, even if just to the virtual skies!

I would like to thank all of you that have been eagerly awaitingthe B314 for so very long for your unfaltering patience. To all of ourloyal customers that took advantage of our internal release offer,thank you kindly for your invaluable feedback in these past weeks. Thecomplexity of simulating the various B314 stations, and at the sametime making them manageable by one virtual pilot, was no easy task. Ithink we have managed to find a great balance between simulation andworkload, especially when it comes to accomplishing a complex exerciselike starting the engines, which in the real B314 required at leastthree aviators working in close synchronicity.


Please continue to keep your feedback flowing! We are alsocurrently evaluating whether there is sufficient demand for having aB314 paint-kit made available, please let us know if this is of anyinterest to you.

Keep flying and stay healthy in these very difficult times.

Wishing you a great B314 experience,

Stefan Schaefer
