Supermarine Spitfire Mk1a - MSFS

When designer Reginald J Mitchell died of cancer in 1937, although having seen the prototype take to the air the previous year, little could he have known just how much influence his brilliant design for “an all-metal monoplane, eight-gun fighter” would have on the outcome of the Second World War.

Spitfires fought from the earliest days of the War right through to its close in both the European and Pacific theatres and continued to serve with distinction through more conflicts to come all the way to the 1960s.

But it was in the darkest days of 1940, when Britain was on the back foot following a disastrous campaign in France, the following evacuations from Dunkirk and the consequential “Battle of Britain” that Mitchell’s graceful little fighter reAlly proved its mettle.

 

Alongside the venerable Hawker Hurricane, its stablemate in many RAF squadrons of the day, pilots flew the Spitfire into battle all throughout each day of the long hot summer of 1940.

In this simulation you will find examples of Mk1As which fought in the “Battle of Britain” piloted by some of that battle’s “aces”. You'll also find a faithful recreation of N3200 - QV one of "The Dunkirk Spitfires" unearthed from the Normandy beaches where she had lain since 1940 and restored to perfection and flying condition today.

We will take you through all the necessary steps needed to fly a Spitfire, point out some of the design’s unique features and get you as close as possible to feeling what it would have been like to fly this incredible aeroplane.

    We are delighted to bring you an exciting new development and the best bit is, IT'S FREE! During the development phase of our Spitfire Mk1A, we have been working with the guys at AUTHENTIKIT who design amazingly realistic controls for use with flight simulators, that can be 3D printed by you at home or by specialist printers who will do the job for you.

    They have now perfected a set of controls for the Mk1A Spitfire. First up are the throttle quadrant and trim controls set. To follow will be the control column and that famouse ring-grip and firing button!

    These controls are superbly designed with extraordinary authenticity and are "top-drawer" quality. Amazingly, they are inexpesive to produce. So as part of the Spitfire Mk1A release we are providing the STL file for the throttle quadrant and trim controls set for you to download, absolutely free.

    Once you have your files, follow the instructions in the accompanying PDF and more details at Authentikit's website, https://authentikit.org/spitfire-mk1a/ If you've ever wondered how a real Spitfire "feels" to fly, the Aeroplane Heaven Spitfire Mk1A together with a set of controls by Authentikit is the only way to do it!
