Lockheed Martin Prepared P3D v4+ & Microsoft Flight Simulator FSX

These downloads have been made compatible with the latest 64bit version of Prepared and remain compatible with FSX and FSX:SE. For earlier sims please look further down the page.

  • A320 Family
    CDA Airbus A321

    There are nine repaints in this package. You can select the model you want or combine them all into one package. The last file marked as Sound is required for any or all of them (it includes gauges and effects as well as sounds).

    For FSX & Steam Edition & P3D v1 v2 v3 v4
    DirectX10+    Compatible +3D Virtual Cockpit

    This pack contains all the members of the Airbus A320 family(A318,A319,A320,A321) with custom sounds for both engine types - CFM56 and International Aero Engines V2500.

    Each plane features a virtual cockpit (VC) with the special edition V3 (3.05) by François Doré, which greatly improves the realism (it's essential to read the manual in English or French).
    Models also feature BLUE LED lighting that illuminates your virtual cockpit with blue LEDs, GPWS, AUTOFLARE, etc and dozens of custom views with jetway and cargo codes for each repaint. Textures of the VC modified in HD.

    IMPORTANT : The airbus starts in Cold & Dark mode (engines and instruments switched off). Read the complete user manual of François Doré, which is included to follow the startup procedure with correct use of bleed air, however the CTRL + E keys will automatically start the engines with Fly By Wire mode in "NORMAL LAW".

    KNOWN BUGS : If the Overhead panel does not show, then you need FSX-SP2. All panels require at least FSX-SP2 or FSX-Acceleration or FSX Steam Edition or Prepar3D

fsx cover

Microsoft Flight Simulator FSX
FSX Steam Edition and Lockheed Martin P3Dv1-3

FSX (Also known as FS10).Many of the aircraft models from FS2004 can be used in FSX but you may find some features wont work.
FSX was the latest incarnation (the 10th) in the franchise but it is now fostered by Dovetail Games who sell it via Steam.
P3D started off as FSX ESP, an FSX development which was bought by Lockheed Martin who fixed many bugs and continued it’s development with the original FSX creators, naming it Prepared. Since then there have been many updates and improvements. There has been a step-change in development when the simulation moved from 32bit to 64bit programming. Generally any plane made for FSX (and earlier in some cases) will work in P3D upto version P3D v3.4. Prepared v4 is the start of 64 bit coding and many models will need updates to make them work - a process which is now underway at UKD and will be mentioned in the text.

  • Bell 206
    UKDirect Bell 206

    FSX Default Bell 206

    G-DSIM repainted by Andrew Ellinor UKD579

    Uses FSX default model, sounds and panel.

    Fun Fact: On July 22, 1994, Ron Bower landed his 206B-3 (N206AJ) at Hurst, Texas, setting a new record for around-the-world flight by a helicopter. Bower had departed on June 24 and returned 24 days, 4 hours, 36 minutes and 24 seconds later, averaging 35.62 knots (40.99 mph, 65.97 km/h). Bower had added a 91-gallon auxiliary fuel tank, which doubled the JetRanger III's range.

    The Bell 206 is a family of two-bladed, single- and twin-engined helicopters, manufactured by Bell Helicopter at its Mirabel, Quebec plant.


    The first Bell 206A flew on January 10, 1966. The basic shape and design of the JetRanger remained unchanged since 1967, but Bell introduced the 206B JetRanger II in 1971. In 1977, the 206B-3 JetRanger III was introduced with its modified tail rotor and more powerful engine. The JetRanger is popular with news media for traffic and news reporting. The LongRanger is commonly used as an air ambulance and as a corporate transport.

fs2004 cover

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004

Also known as FS9, FS2004 and A Century of Flight (ACOF).
 
FS2004 remains very popular with many users because they have invested a lot of money into addon software and because todays PCs can cope with it extremely well. Due to its large fan base many developers still produce software for this sim despite being released in 2003 when many PCs still ran on Windows 98!
Many of these aircraft can be used in FSX but you may find some features dont work. Models designed for FSX usually wont work with FS2004 but a lot of models from FS2002 will.

  • FS9 Default Baron 58
    beech58_Baron

    FS2004 Default Beechcraft Baron 58
    G-UKDT
     
     Uses default sounds and panel.
     
     Will work with FS2002 &FS2004

    The Beechcraft Baron is a light, twin-engined piston aircraft originally developed by Beech Aircraft Corporation and currently manufactured by the Hawker Beechcraft Corporation. The Baron is a variant of the Beechcraft Bonanza, more specifically the Travel Air, and was introduced in 1961.

    Barons come in three basic types: the Baron 55 (short body), Baron 56  (short body) and Baron 58 (long body), with several sub-variants each.

    the larger, more powerful Baron 58 was developed from the Baron 55, introducing club seating, double aft baggage doors, and new gross weight of 5,400lbs. Depending on the variant, the Baron 58 is fitted with either the Continental IO-520 or IO-550 300-hp engine.

    The Baron 58 can cruise at 200 knots (370 km/h) at 7000 ft (2100 m). The lengthening of the fuselage increased rear baggage space, as well as accommodating for more comfortable six-place seating over the Baron 55 and 56TC.


    Max speed 386km/h (208kt), cruising speed 367km/h (198kt).
    Initial rate of climb 1735ft/min
    Range with reserves 2920km (1575nm).

    UKDirect AirTaxi operates a small fleet of these planes. Visit the AirTaxi webpage for more details.

fs2002 cover

Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002

Some of these aircraft can be used in FSX but you may find they wont fly correctly. FS2002 still has its fans but unless you have a really old PC users should think about upgrading to FS2004 at least.

As better models become available these are being repainted and made available for FSX.

    The Bombardier Dash 8 or Q-Series, previously known as the de Havilland Canada Dash 8 or DHC-8, is a series of twin-engined, medium range, turboprop airliners. Introduced by de Havilland Canada (DHC) in 1984, they are now produced by Bombardier Aerospace. Over 1,000 Dash 8’s of all models have been built, the 300 is a 50–56 passenger version that entered service in 1989.

    The Dash 8 competes against the likes of Saab’s 340, ATR 42 and Embraer Brasilia and was successful due in part to its early entry into the market when there was little competition and the fact the aircraft breaks even with about 1/3 of its seats filled. All models produced after 1996 include the Active Noise and Vibration Suppression (ANVS) system designed to reduce cabin noise and vibration levels to nearly those of jet airliners. These were marketed as the Q series (Q200, Q300, and Q400).

    In April 2008, Bombardier announced that production of the Classic versions (Series 100, 200, 300) would be ended, leaving the Series 400 as the only Dash 8 still in production. 671 Dash 8 Classics were produced, the last one delivered to Air Nelson in May 2008.

    Cruise speed: 328 mph (528 km/h) 285 knots
    Range: 968 miles (1,558 km)
    Service ceiling: 25,000 ft (7,620 m)

    UK Direct has a small Dash 8 fleet of 300’s and 400’s based at Southend EGMC and can often be found around the UK.
