PMDG, a well-known Prepar3D aircraft developer responsible for a wide range of Boeing aircraft, mainly their 737, 777 and 747, has released their very first rendition for Microsoft Flight Simulator – DC-6.

The information about this release has been announced a few days ago, when the CEO of PMDG, Robert Randazzo, has announced that DC-6 has left the development stage. Today, the aircraft has been released and is even on sale right now.

The Douglas DC-6 is a four-engine turboprop aircraft, developed and constructed by Douglas Aircraft back in 1946 to 1958. It was mainly used as civil aircraft and was first used by United Airlines in April 1947.

The aircraft features a wide range of functions, and it is the first study-level aircraft for Microsoft Flight Simulator. In the rendition, we can find features such as fully interactive dynamic cockpit, ramp manager, fuel and loadout manager, Artificial Flight Engineer or AFE, realistic fuel system, immersive soundset and much more.

There are also a wide range of liveries available through the well-known PMDG Operations Center, which is included with the purchase. The package also includes documentation of the aircraft and various manuals, to make your work easier and more enjoyable.

My aviation enthusiasm started back in March 2016 and since then I fly almost every day when I have time. I always like to discover new places or new things. The vehicles or any kind of technical things always fascinated me. As I was younger, I was also a journalist in a school magazine, so when I got an opportunity to write articles about my favorite hobby, I immediately jumped in.
