A2A Releases Accu-Sim for the Wings of Power II B-17

 

The philosophy behind Accu-Sim was born many years ago. This has all been a dream for us, until now. After many years of hard work, we are proud to present our dream to you, our customer.
A2A Simulations has made it possible for all of us to have the opportunity to enjoy the unique, challenging and fascinating experience of flying the most authentic, complete and accurate simulation of the legendary B-17 ever created. The creation and application of the unique, proprietary A2A Accu-Sim system enables us to truly put you in the B-17’s cockpit in a way that only flying the real thing could match. You can almost smell the leather seats, the hot oil, and the pungent exhaust from those four Wright R-1820-97 "Cyclone" turbo-supercharged, 1,200 horsepower radial engines.

7S3 Stark's Twin Oaks

Nestled in the rolling farmland of the fertile Willamette Valley near Portland, Oregon, Stark's Twin Oaks Airpark is ideally located for sightseeing in the Pacific Northwest. The rural location makes for less traffic and a relaxed atmosphere, while providing an easy jumping-off point for flights to either the coast to the west, or the rugged peaks of the Cascade range to the east. The scenery includes a large area of 30cm/pixel aerial photoreal terrain, featuring the various orchards, Alpaca ranches, and small farms in the area. One special point of interest in the area is the massive Glacier rock quarry, located a few miles to the southeast of the field. And what is possibly a first for an FS airport: multiple elevations.


Twin Oaks is carved from the side of a gentle slope, and as a result, the Starks' house, garage, and two of the hangars are on a hill overlooking the rest of the field. Lead developer Bill Womack has obsessively researched and photographed the airport over the last few years, with the enthusiastic support of owners Bob and Betty Stark. We're proud to offer the definitive sim rendition of one of Oregon's aviation jewels.

  • Ground imagery at 30cm per pixel
  • Crafted by master developer Bill Womack
  • Full of 'little details' that make it charming
  • Superb HD 5m terrain mesh for super clarity
  • Includes a large coverage of photoreal area
