NEWS! - Aircraft Release : Legendary Ford Tri-Motor Model 4-AT by Ted Cook


Ford_Tri-Motor_4AT_News_ Header.jpg


One of the true first pioneers of passenger aviation was actually built by a car company, it is the legendary Ford Tri-Motor Model 4-AT. Ford Trimotor (also called the "Tri-Motor", and nicknamed the "Tin Goose") it is an American three-engined transport aircraft. Production started in 1925 by the companies of Henry Ford and ended on June 7, 1933. A total of 199 Ford Trimotors were made. It was designed for the civil aviation market, but also saw service with military units. The 4-AT is the smaller but more powerful of the Tri-Motors as the 5-AT was larger.


This package from Ted Cook contains several (three) versions of the 4-AT. The basic 4-AT model comes in both wheel and float versions and includes 11 liveries (Ford, Stout Aerial Tours, Standard Oil, Ford NC1077, Miss Niagara, United Air Transport (Canada), Northern Airways (Yukon), Maddux, Curtiss-Wright, NYRBA (South America), and the Tri-Ford).
Making headlines became a Trimotor trademark. On November 27th and 28th, 1929, Commander Richard E. Byrd (navigator), chief pilot Bernt Balchen, and two other crewmen, the copilot and the photographer, made the first flight above the geographic South Pole in a Ford Trimotor that Byrd named the Floyd Bennett. This was one of three aircraft taken on this polar expedition, with the other two being named The Stars and Stripes and The Virginian, replacing the Fokker Trimotors that Byrd had previously used.
All models feature:
  • FMOD custom sounds
  • Highly detailed PBR textures
  • A pop-up to control co-pilot functions such as the fuel controls located behind the pilot and
  • for quick readout of engine-mounted gauges
  • The Garmin 430 can be displayed if modern flying is desired
  • POH flight manual










The Tri-Motor was powered by three 220-hp (165-kW) Wright J-5 Whirlwind radial piston engines, accommodation for two pilots and 12 passengers. This classic design is now available from the X-Plane.OrgStore.
