F-16 Fighting Falcon Takes Flight

The SC Designs fighter collection for Microsoft Flight Simulator features the C, D and I models the General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon in 11 paint schemes.

According to the developer, the package is highly detailed yet less demanding than complex procedural simulators. It is designed to be accessible to all users without the need for intense study.

The aircraft is coded using the Microsoft Flight Simulator native flight model with custom manoeuvring flaps/slats and aerodynamics capable of producing departure spins.

Animations include control surfaces, a tail hook and afterburner effects along with static objects such as an operational canopy, crew ladder, wheel chocks and engine covers.

The cockpit is designed to emulate the appearance of the real F-16. It comes with animated 3D instruments coded in HTML for high performance.

It comes with an auto-trim system, Forward-Looking Infra-Red display (FLIR), Terrain Following Radar mode and a full autopilot and navigation system.

The front and rear cockpit positions are modelled in the D and I variants along with pilots with customisable crew helmets, names, flight suit patches and even faces.
