Hi!  California Classic Propliners is devoted to the Microsoft Flight Simulator simulation of the propliners flying in California, from the DC-3 to the final glory days (before the mid 1970's).   Welcome!

This page will generally be limited to post-WWII propliners that flew in or into California on a scheduled or regular charter basis, and US carriers will have priority.  (I hope others will develop similar pages for other areas and for later /earlier airliners - let me know and I'll set up a link!)  I would like to thank everyone who has built, modified, or helped with the planes and other resources on this page.

FSX Information: I bought it, I installed it. I have determined that my sceneries are not compatible. Therefore, I have decided not to pursue creating addons for FSX at this time; we will still be creating for FS2004. However, see below for compatibility information.

Most of my (i.e. Greg Pepper's) propliners (i.e. the CV-340, etc.) have been tested in FSX and they work OK. You may need to find compatible blurred prop textures if you are using SP2 or later. Newer XML style gauges and panels appear to work best - old FS98 style gauges (developed as late as 2002) will not work in the sim. Thus my v6 panels are NOT compatible - use the latest XML panels. Engine start switches have the most problems when using FS9 panels. Sounds are OK as is. Do not activate the supercharger gauge in FSX/Acceleration - they are not compatible with the new flight model.

FS2004 Information:  The more recent GMAX and FSDS2 aircraft give the best results.  You can tell which planes are GMAX and FSDS2 aircraft on these pages by the fact that the plane's picture is larger than the older, incompatible planes. 

Do you need help with installation?  How do I get my plane listed properly in the Select Aircraft menu?  How do I get ATC to call my plane using the correct airline, manufacturer, and model?  Take a look here first!

Note: Some of these files are located in the AVSIM and flightsim.com file libraries. You need to be logged in to their file systems before the links will work directly.
