The latest aircraft in the Local Legends series for Microsoft Flight Simulator is the Dornier Do X Flying Boat.
Designed by Claudius Dornier, the Do X performed its maiden flight in July 1929 on Lake Constance. It was powered by 12 610hp V-12 piston engines, making it the largest and most powerful hydroplane ever to take to the sky.
Known as the "flugschiff," or flying ship, the Do X was a symbol of luxury and innovation. With a capacity to accommodate up to 100 passengers on the main deck, complete with a lounge, bar, and dining area, it offered an opulent airborne experience. The upper deck provided accommodation for a crew of up to 14, along with the aircraft's control systems, including the cockpit, engine room and radio station.
The Dornier Do X in Microsoft Flight Simulator is meticulously modelled using data from historical sources. It sports a detailed external model with three liveries and an interior, including the cockpit with authentic instruments and a period cabin. The Dornier X is available on the Microsoft Flight Simulator Marketplace for $14.99.
