THESE ARE A SERIES OF PLANES I HAVE CREATED WITH FLIGHT SIM DESIGN STUDIO 2 (FSDS2). MANY OF THESE
HAVE BEEN UPLOADED TO SIGHTS SUCH AS WWW.SIMVIATION.COM AS WELL AS WWW.FLIGHTSIM.COM
THIS IS CALLED THE PILATUS VISAGE, MEANING VISION. THIS PLANE
DOES OVER 300 KIAS AND FLIES QUITE SMOOTHLY, FEATURING ALL
WORKING CONTROL SURFACES, DOOR, RETRACTABLE GEAR, VIRTUAL
COCKPIT, ANIMATED DOOR WITH RETRACTING RAMP, INTERIOR
DETAILS, AND OPENING COWLING WITH DETAILED VISIBLE TURBINE.
THIS IS A VERTICAL TAKEOFF COMMUTER I AM WORKING ON that can
be flown in FS2004. It features ducted thrusters that are variable in angle
for enhanced manuvering and would enable a pilot to attain high airspeeds
and yet allow helo landings in extremely small areas with safe prop/rotor
Note the forward swept main
wings, the odd 'hammer head
shark' forward canards, and
the ducted 5 blade maximum
area composite prop.
Messenger Hawk Air Racer
This is an airplane that stemmed off of my VTOL Commuter
concept vehicle. Where the Commuter has swiveling ducted
fans for vertical take off, I replaced them with wings and
created a mini air racer for competition against Lancair
classes at the Reno air races.
Unfortunately this plane was lost before it could be uploaded to my
favorite Sim sites due to a computer virus. I plan to remake it in Gmax
Chance Voight V-173 Flying Flapjack Naval Prototype
THIS IS THE V-173 FLYING FLAPJACK ORIGINALLY
MADE BY CHANCE VOIGHT. THIS WAS UPLOADED
TO THE WEBSITES IN 2003. THIS IS ONE OF MY
FAVORITE CONCEPT PLANES THAT FEATURES A
DISC LIKE LIFTING BODY.
Fairchild 24R with the Ranger Inline Engine
This is the Fairchild 24 series I did. I ended up with 6 variants of the
24 model which included the inline engine, radial engine version,
bubble cowl model, and each in float plane versions. I would like to
thank Bill Lyons who helped me earlier in my sim model learning.
My dad had originally owned a Fairchild 24R and this was a tribute.
A Fairchild 24 Collection CD is now available
which has all the models on it (6), Click here.
Fairchild 24W with the Wasp Radial Engine
This is the Fairchild 24W with the Wasp radial engine. This was a
superb flying model with a cool rugged look to it. The sound file was
borrowed from the Corsair, thus she had a very awesome feel to
her when flying. I made float versions of this model and found
myself doing alot of flying about Alaska in the flight sim looking for
nice lakes and checking out the cool scenery with live weather.
Jabiru Series 2 Seaters with Panel Ugrade Packages
Falcon Twin Turbine Biz Helicopter
This is the Jabiru aircraft from Australia and sold world wide.
It is a very aerodynamic little plane that comes in several styles
and versions including varying powerplants. I created the
original Jabi models of the mini, and the Jabiru 2 with wider
wingspan and longer tail. They feature moving control
surfaces, its own panel and I later created a multiview panel
update package that gives you a nice realistic feeling when in
the flight sim. This model was done in Gmax.
This is a prototype helicopter concept I have been
working on that features new rotor anti vibration
chassis mounting concepts as well as a new
composite outer fuselage, aerodynamic styling,
and a NOTAR exhast tail section. This helo is not
This is the Sport Blimp. It is a single, possibly two
passenger vehicle designed for vertical take-offs,
(VTOL) as well as smooth dynamic flights up to 70
knots. The design features swiveling ducted fans that
allow for incredible manuvering as well as a moderately
sized rudder in which the entire surface pivots allowing
for good control at very low airspeeds. The downloads
of this model were higher then expected and a
panel/cockpit was introduced as an update. This
vehicle was done in Gmax. The actual design is several
years old in which I incorporated such concepts as
lifting gas catallytic heaters which increase lift, a lifting
body envelope for increased payload capacities, as well
as three other versions that include an extremely aero
dynamic speed version, a 5 passenger sky camper,
and a sky yacht.
Seruphum Delta Wing Concept Planes
This is a delta wing concept that I have
been working on for several years. It
features revolutionary vehicle and boat
construction methods using composite and
Formula 1 technologies. This is a multi use
platform vehicle designed for executive
aviation, commuter use, air frieght, quick
response ambulance vehicle, and higher
level lowcost corporate aero market entry.

Boeing Concept Fighter; Actual Plane that was made by Boeing
This is a rare Boeing prototype which I am
informed is now already decommissioned. Its use
was for studying compression lift via inverted
rudders on mini winglets. I made this model in
FSDS2 and it is not finished to date.
Disco Vollante' Disc Shaped STOL Lifting Body Concept Craft
Born from the most imaginative concepts in lifting
body technologies comes a flying body shaped like a
saucer with enclosed dual ducted fans, a turbo
charged 4 rotor fuel injected Wankel rotary engine
with a carbon fibre block, a large gyro that enduces
yaw and roll control which enables flying sideways
like a helicopter without flight control surfaces.
This is a STOL vehicle designed to take-off as well
as land in sectored streets that allow flying vehicle
flight interfacing. The dynamic body which
produces lift also sports pop-out wings when added
control surfaces are required. The most latest
and compact state of the art avionics are installed
on this 'craft'. If you find yourself being followed by
an F16 or guys dressed in black are waiting for you
in the driveway, tell them its just a sim model.
Super VTOL Ultimate Landing Ship and VTOL Cargo Vessel
This is the Super VTOL Principality class lander. This is a ship born
of American enginuity and brute strength. Her engines, like giant
versions of the 747 fan jets, equipped with unique ring/thrust
ventricals, sport a power such as like the days of the Atlas
engines that would take men to the moon. This is the VTOL of
tomorrow. This ship can take off like a helo and a 747. She has a
large rear loading ramp that lowers for vehicles to drive up into,
and an extremely wide inner deck that can carry 3 military tanks
shoulder to shoulder. On the tarmac, she is a bit ominous, with
her amazingly large fanjets hoisted into the air on her shoulders,
she is moving just sitting there.
Her body is a wing foil, so that when she is flying straight and true,
she is a wing unto herself, a lifting body if you would. Her
predecessors with big blades all about have born fourth a new lady
that encloses her blades within sleek ducted nacelles, increasing
their thrust, as well as her lift and capabilities.
