We are able to cater for both
the standard FS2004 autopilot and an authentic VC10 autopilot in one unit maintaining the look and
functionality of the real VC10 autopilot. The real VC10 has two
autopilot computers AP-1 and AP-2 and now our VC10 does too! AP-1
works as the FS2004 style default autopilot with autothrottle and AP-2 gives authentic feeling IAS and MACH Climb Modes, ALT hold and manual throttles just like the
real thing! Unlike the real thing though we are able to offer some
assistance in the form of secret switches and panel Icons.
It is your choice which method you use at the flick of a switch! Click on
the picture to the right for a large pop-up.
There is smoke from the engines (lots of
it!) and a jet-wash effect.
There are also smooth wing-tip vortices
at high angles of attack.
The gear has suspension arms and
these and the pistons have photographic textures.
The RAF K4 model also
has deployable refuelling hoses which in the AI version included in the
package automatically deploy at altitudes between 10,000 and 25,000 feet.
You can, with the help of third party utilities, create AI flights using our refuellers and see how hard it is for the real pilots who do this every day!
Alternatively link up with your friends on a LAN or Internet.
More detail has been added to
both the 2D panel and the virtual cockpit and all gauges with working knobs
can now be adjusted using the mouse wheel as well as the traditional
The aircraft comes with the BOAC gold
Speedbird livery, British Airways Red Tail East African Airways and the RAF
tactical grey plus a representation of what the VC10 would look like in the
current British Airways "Union Flag" livery, and a virtual airline "Trans
Global Aviation" with stunning glossy metallic effects. There is also a
plain white "paint kit" which you can use to create your own liveries which
is available by separate download. The Standard VC10 available after Easter
adds another 15 liveries to that model.
The model features all the moving control surfaces, opening main doors and opening
windows in the Virtual Cockpit. Deployable refuelling hoses in the K3/K4 model. A realistic sound
set. Engine Smoke and Jet wash effects plus Wing Tip Vortices, Great
flight dynamics and Autoland.

Andrew Herd's review
Nigel Martin's original review
"I have been using your VC10 in FS2004 for several months and despite having many aircraft in my "stable" I am drawn to the VC10
time after time. It is such a beautiful aircraft to fly, to listen to and to look at. Somehow it seems to bring FS2004 alive every time I fly it.
Anyway I just wanted to let you know how much pleasure you have given me"
"The polish and attention to detail on your aircraft is the best I've seen on any aircraft. This alone adds more realism than anything else available. The VC is hardly distinguishable from the 2D cockpit view such is the quality of your work."
"I am truly amazed at the quality of your project. It is all you told me and more! It fly's so smoothly that I am going to be spending many hours flying it"
"it's a wonderful plane and the flight/ground dynamics are among the best in my collection, no doubt about it! I love the predictability and weighty feeling when taxiing.... makes you feel like your in a real heavy as would be expected in a plane of this size... I also love the heavy yet predictable nature when on final approach... I was able to get it onto the centreline with no bounce on the first flight... and that is a very rewarding feeling when you have carefully monitored the controls. This plane will be one of my regulars for sure."
"The download went smoothly, as did the install. What an awesome old airplane! It flies like an eagle, and looks just as majestic. I sincerely thank You"
"Congratulations, what an incredible virtual cockpit and model!"
"As the old saying goes 'if it looks right it'll fly right', and she does."
"An excellent looking model and VC. I like virtual cockpits, I had a VC-10 already but not with the VC, the other one has now been deleted."
...and they just keep on coming!
"I cut my aircraft engineering teeth on these beauties in the late 60's and this sim model is the best I have seen. It flies like a dream."
"I flew big jets for 33 years with BOAC and Swissair, ..... Your VC10 is the most realistic and satisfying model that I have flown "
"First class it was. I'm referring to the product not the postage. . . Fantastic. Love the smoke trails from the engines and the vapour trails from the wing tips just before a stall if I tilt the vc10 up. I have many airliners from e.g. Just Flight including A340 Professional, A320 Professional. DC-9 -30, Boeing 727, Boeing 747-400, 777-200, 737 NG and this really is up with all of them. "
"I am writing to congratulate you [on it.] I was lucky enough to be the British United Airways VC 10 Fleet Navigator from September 1964 to January 1975. B.U.A. had Standard VC 10's, but from April 1975 to April 1976 I was "on loan" to East African Airways navigating their Super VC 10's.
"I really like your VC10. nice textures, good look in general .... you have done a great job. The panel looks good and the new sounds are a feast for my musicboxes"
"Congratulations ! You made a great product ! I am very happy with the purchase !"
"the reproduction of the VC 10 is great.......I haven't stopped flying the 'damn thing'....."
"I must congratulate you on your VC10 simulation, it is absolutely brilliant."
"This aircraft has the best and most polished finish and detail refinement of any other. I can't thank you enough, fantastic."
"It's a beautiful ship."
"I must congratulate you on your VC10 simulation, it is absolutely brilliant.
I have been flying flight simulators since the days of the commodore 64 and this just has to be one of the best, if not the best simulation I have flown. Well Done"
"Snuck out for a quick circuit over Moreton Bay in G-ASGI just now. Speechless. Could have kept going. Made a Virgin go-around and get off my approach. All the sedate handling I could have anticipated ... and more. THOSE SOUND FILES! I'm in love all over again. WELL DONE M8. Congratulations, and thank-you."
"it's virtual heaven flying a VC10. The graphics are brilliant and so is the realism, I would recommend this add-on to everyone who loves the VC10.
Once again many thanks and keep up the good work."
"I flew the VC10 with BA for 12 years. From First Officer, to Captain, and Training Captain. I am 72 now, and really enjoy FS9. I get a real kick with your lovely VC10, especially flying it coupled to the Auto Pilot, and carrying out Autolands at LHR."
"What incredible detail you have managed to have reproduced. The engine sounds are a delight to hear."

Flight Simulator 2002
If your computer will run Microsoft
Flight Simulator 2004 then you should have no trouble running our
simulation. The settings can be altered within Flight Simulator to
obtain acceptable results on many computers. This simulation includes
very many analogue instruments which require an absolute minimum
resolution of 1024x768 pixels.
We recommend the
following in order to gain the best experience:
- Intel Pentium 4 or AMD equivalent
CPU with a speed of 3 Ghz or faster (Minimum 2Ghz)
- A monitor capable of displaying at
least a 1280x1024 pixel resolution.
- Windows 2000 or Windows XP recommended
- Windows XP runs generally much
better with 1Gb of RAM - not just for Flight Simulator
- nVidia or ATI Radeon based 3D accelerated
card with full antialiasing and Transform & Lighting and a
minimum of 64 MB onboard RAM
- SoundBlaster Live or equivalent
128-bit DirectX sound device
- Up-to-date DirectX video and sound drivers
