[Simulator News] PMDG Updates DC-6 for Flight Simulator 2020

PMDG has recently issued an update to their Douglas DC-6 for Microsoft Flight Simulator, including the new Working Title GNS 430, flight model and autopilot improvements, and other bug fixes. 

The Douglas DC-6 is a piston-powered airliner and cargo aircraft built by the Douglas Aircraft Company from 1946 to 1958, intended as a military transport near the end of WW2, but was eventually reworked to enter the commercial transport market, a task which was done rather successfully with over 700 units built. With its 2400hp radial engines, the DC-6B could fly nonstop from the eastern United States to Europe but required a fuel stop on the way back because of the winds. 

The new update is currently available on PMDG’s Operations Center, with the marketplace edition still pending approval by Microsoft. As mentioned by Randazzo in the update announcement post, many of the changes are small and focused on details, with the highlights being the implementation of the Working Title GNS 430 for the GPS and autopilot, flight model stability alterations and improvements, autopilot tuning, the increment of resolution and sharpness of some overhead panel placards, and more. 

The complete list follows down below:

  • Utilize the Working Title GNS430 for GPS and autopilot
  • Flight model stability alterations and improvements
  • Autopilot tuning and improvements
  • Increase resolution and sharpness of some overhead panel placards
  • Fix for gyro-pilot dropping out of NAV mode when disabling ALT HOLD
  • GPS now correctly powers on/off/reboots with avionics master
  • Fix to prevent gyro-pilot's 2 minute 'gyro erection timer' interfering with gyro-pilot use when spawning already airborne.
