The A2A Wings of Silver Stratocruiser is unlike any aircraft you have
flown in Microsoft Flight Simulator.
Stratocruiser is a double-deck, pressurized, four-engine, medium to long
range, high altitude, high speed, commercial transport plane. The airplaph,
a service ceiling of 34,000 feet, and a maximum range of approximately 4,000
miles. To its passengers, if flne
is designed for a normal gross weight of 147,000 pounds, a high speed of
approximately 350 mew them in first class
comfort higher, faster, and farther than anything before.
The 377 paved Boeing’s entry into the
airline business, and you can still see this technology in use today. The Stratocruiser
and its massive Pratt & Whitney R4360 engines, represents the highest step in the evolution
of aircraft piston-engine technology. These engines were so
powerful, that this huge Stratocruiser set the transcontinental speed record from Seattle to
D.C.; beating both the Lockheed Constellation and the North American P51 Mustang.
Even by today's standards this aircraft has amazing performance. There is also a Pregnant Guppy variant that was custom-made to transport
rocket components for the Saturn V to NASA. You have to see it fly to believe it.
A2A Simulations has crafted and pioneered many new technologies for this aircraft
which has become the flagship of the Wings of Silver line for Microsoft Flight Simulator X. Never before has the
team worked so diligently to produce what we feel, and you may agree, is the most
accurate representation of a true “classic” airliner.
Designed and created by Boeing, the world’s premier large 4-engined
Four crew positions – pilot, co-pilot, flight engineer, and navigator.
Fully modeled and functioning positions constructed with down to the rivet
The 3,500 horsepower Pratt & Whitney R4360, the world’s most powerful
piston aircraft engine ever produced.
See the world like you have never seen it before through 19 cockpit
windows for unprecedented visibility.
Fly high and fast. Fly above the bad weather
and cover the ground at 350 mph.
Double-decker airliner carries almost 100 passengers in first
class comfort on a level never seen before or since.
As with every A2A aircraft, it is gorgeously constructed, inside and out,
down to the last rivet.
Built to be flown "By The Book."
Fully clickable cockpits with authentically working systems and gauges.

performs as intended. Now you can set for “auto-rich”
or "auto-lean" and the
aircraft fuel to air ratio will be automatically determined and set by the carburetor
based upon various factors such as altitude.
Extinguisher system with fully functioning overheard panel
On-board Auxiliary Power Unit (APU)
to power systems with engines off and not drain

You control the target altitude and the rate of
pressure change and the system authentically
displays and manages cabin pressure.
