|12/12/2014||Flights added to the Northwest Historical Flight Schedule Database||Andrew Vane|
|We’ve added a bunch of additional Northwest historical fights to/from Memphis from a NW 2001 timetable I acquired with Jim Daigneau’s assistance. Most are real flights Northwest flew using A319, A320, DC-9-40, DC-9-50 and Boeing 727-200 aircraft. You can find them via the Pilot Center. More to be added in the future.|
|12/08/2014||Boeing 377 added to the DVA fleet!||Andrew Vane|
|As if two new propliners added in one week wasn’t enough, we are adding a third which also happens to be the third double decker aircraft available in the DVA hangar: The Boeing 377. Both Northwest Airlines and Pan Am flew this double-bubble propliner in the post WWII era. Originally developed in 1947 and capable of carrying 100 passengers over 4100 miles, the B377 is added as part of DVA’s DC6 program.
California Classic Propliners (Calclassic.com) has an FS2002/FS2004 model. We hope you’ll enjoy this new addition to the fleet!
|12/05/2014||DC-7C and L1049 Super Constellation added to the Fleet||Andrew Vane|
|Two fierce competitors in the history of Delta’s fleet development were Lockheed and Douglas Commercial. These two manufacturers competed against each other to re-engineer their aircraft to fly longer ranges and carry more passengers. We have added to our fleet the culmination of the DC-7 and Constellation battle: L1049 Super Constellation and the Douglas DC-7C Seven Seas. Both have over 4,000nm ranges. Ratings for these aircraft can be obtained via the DC-6 program.
We will be adding more historic routes in the future that feature these aircraft of yesteryear. Models can be obtained from Calclassic Propliners (www.calclassic.com) among other flight sim web sites.
Much thanks to DVA pilot Jim Daigneau and to Mr. Tom Gibson of Calclassic Propliners for their assistance.
|12/04/2014||Alaska White-Out: More Pacific Northern Airlines Historical Flights Added||Andrew Vane|
|Pacific Northern Airlines (PNA) was acquired by Western Airlines in 1967 and subsequently by Delta Airlines. We have updated the schedule database (DVH) to include some of the regional PNA flights within Alaska. These include flights to Kodiak, Yakutat, Nome, Barrow and points in between. Most legs originate at Fairbanks (PAFA) or Anchorage (PANC). Many of these were flown by the Constellation with some by jetliners later on.
Pilots should be informed that most of these regional airfields have short runways and larger aircraft in the DVA fleet will not be able to land or take off. Check the capabilities of your aircraft and the runway lengths prior to choosing an aircraft to fly.
We hope you'll enjoy these historical destinations! Be sure to bring your dogsleds and tobaggans!
|11/21/2014||DC-7 and Constellation Historical Schedule Database Update||Andrew Vane|
|The DC-7 and Constellation were long range stalwarts of Delta Airlines prior to the introduction of jets (and for a period thereafter). We’ve added additional historical flights to the schedule which were actually flown by these aircraft in the past. They may be accessed in the Pilot Center under Find A Flight as Delta Historic (DVH) airline. Approximately 60 entries have been added so far with more to come.
Much thanks goes out to Captain Jim Daigneau (DVA5643), a real world Delta 767 pilot and instructor who volunteered his time to research timetables for these great propliner historical flights! May the piston props fly on!
