FSX / FS2004 Short S.23, S.30 and S.33 Empire 

By Jens B. Kristensen.

These famous aircraft formed the backbone of the British 
national airline, Imperial Airways, it's sucessor B.O.A.C. 
and its partners Qantas Empire Airways and TEAL from the mid ‘thirties 
and through World War Two. The aircraft that survived the war were 
replaced by more modern aircraft in 1946-47.

The C-class also served as the basis of a famous, 
military flying boat, the Short Sunderland.
 
For more details and flying instructions see the 
pdf document installed in the JBK Short S23\Manual folder.

This package includes three variant in six colour schemes:

Normal, short-range S.23: 

Imperial Airways 'Canopus', Qantas 'Coorong'.

Medium-range S.30 and S.33: 

TEAL 'Awarua', BOAC 'Cleopatra'

Extended-range S.30: 

Imperial Airways 'Cabot', and BOAC 'Clare' in war-time camouflage.

----

Version 2.0 for FSX and FS2004. The model now works with FSX as 
well as FS2004. The panel and virtual cockpit are improved, and
the take-off is more realistic with a shorter take-off run.

----

Installation: 

*To install for Flight Simulator X: 

Just run the included setup program. 


*To install for Flight Simulator 2004 - A Century of Flight:

1) Run the included setup program. When you get to the "Destination
Folder" dialog, click the 'Browse' button and locate your
 
     Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator 9\aircraft
 
folder.

2) Continue the setup!

----

Sounds: The stock Douglas DC-3 sounds are used. Replace with 
more interesting propliner sounds if you wish.

----

The Flight Dynamics for this aircraft were originally developed 
with Stuart Greens FS2004 Short Sunderland as a starting point, 
and while the aircraft.cfg file has been completely 
rewritten for the Short Empire some sections of the 
Short Empire.air file are unchanged. 
----

The gauges are to a large extent default gauges of Flight 
Simulator 2004, a few of them modified for four engines. 
Magneto switches, starter buttons, prop feathering buttons 
and engine gauges are based on public domain gauges by 
Mike (MoparMike) Wagner, converted to XML by Jens B. Kristensen. 

----

This plane was originally made in may 2004 with FSDS 2.24, 
this new version with FSDS 3.0; textures with Paint Shop Pro 
and DxtBmp, panel with FS Panel Studio. 

It is freeware and must stay that way.

Good luck flying the Short Empire!
