Big Radials, the acclaimed aircraft developer for Microsoft Flight Simulator, has announced the release of its latest addition to the simulator: the Noorduyn Norseman. This aircraft follows the developer’s previous launches of the Grumman JRF-6B Goose, Nieuport 17, and P-40B, and marks Big Radials’ return to MSFS one year after the previous release.
The Norseman, designed and built by Canadian aircraft manufacturer Noorduyn Aircraft Ltd., has a celebrated history. The company, founded by Dutch-Canadian aircraft designer Robert B.C. Noorduyn in 1928, produced over 900 Norseman aircraft between 1935 and 1959. The aircraft’s rugged construction and ability to operate on rough, unimproved airstrips made it an instant success, serving in both civilian and military capacities, including extensive use during World War II.
Big Radials says its virtual Norseman offers a highly-detailed and accurate representation of the real-world aircraft, complete with realistic flight dynamics and performance. The aircraft is well-suited for simmers seeking a versatile and reliable airplane to explore remote and challenging environments, such as the Canadian North and Alaska.
The Noorduyn Norseman add-on for MSFS includes three variants: Standard, Bush Wheel, and Floats, allowing virtual pilots to adapt to different terrains and conditions. Additionally, the package features six authentic liveries, offering a diverse range of options for customization.
