[FSX P3D P3D2] Boeing 737-200c - Milviz SP3



Boeing 737-200c




The Boeing 737-200c is a combination cargo-passenger plane that was developed from the original Boeing 737-100 and -200 models. The 737-200c has a larger cargo door and a strengthened cabin floor that allows for different configurations to accommodate any combination of both passengers and cargo. The 737-200c can seat up to 112 passengers or carry up to 31,500 pounds of cargo. The aircraft has a range of approximately 1,500 nautical miles (2,778 km) and a cruising speed of Mach 0.74 (485 mph, 780 km/h). The aircraft is powered by two Pratt & Whitney JT8D-17A engines that produce 16,000 pounds of thrust each.


One of the unique features of the 737-200c is its ability to operate from unimproved or gravel runways with the "gravel kit" modification. This modification includes a vortex dissipater system that prevents gravel from being ingested by the engines, and a nose gear ski that protects the landing gear from damage. The gravel kit enables the 737-200c to serve many remote and far-flung corners of the globe, especially in Canada, Alaska, and other countries where paved runways are scarce.


The Boeing 737-200c entered service in April 1968 and was continuously manufactured until August 1988. A total of 1010 units were built, including 104 convertible versions. Although the last regular 737-200 left scheduled passenger service in 2008, the versatile and adaptable 737-200c continues to fill a role as a dependable and uniquely capable aircraft for carrying passengers and freight to the world's most remote communities.


Milviz SP3




Milviz SP3 is an add-on for FSX, P3D and P3D2 that simulates the Boeing 737-200c with high fidelity and realism. The add-on is a highly detailed replica of its real-life counterpart, using high quality digital photos, plans sourced directly from Boeing, professionally recorded sounds, realistic flight dynamics, custom lighting effects, and more.


The add-on includes a Universal FMS that is fully functional (given FSX's limitations) and is updateable via Navigraph support. The FMS is operable only with the SP177 autopilot system. A more "steam" based version is included with a SP77 autopilot system and no FMS for those who like it "old school".


One of the outstanding features of this add-on is its extensive customizability through the Milviz Aircraft Management System (MVAMS). The MVAMS allows you to select either a Cargo or Passenger equipped convertible, or a Combi or Passenger only 737-200c, with the ability to choose your preference of avionics options, including SP-77, SP-177, or Universal FMS. You can also choose between a variety of liveries and engine types, including the Pratt & Whitney JT8D-9A, JT8D-15A, or JT8D-17A. Additionally, you can enable or disable the gravel kit option depending on the type of runway you plan to land on.


The add-on also features a realistic and functional cockpit that includes a fully modeled and clickable flight engineer's station, a complete TCAS simulation with audio and visual TA and RA system, a fully simulated oxygen system, a fully functioning weather radar with tilt and angle controls for the Collins WXR-300, and a custom coded electrical system with functional circuit breakers.


The add-on also offers a high level of immersion and interactivity with the aircraft systems and environment. You can experience realistic start-up procedures with ground power and air supply, realistic fuel management with crossfeed and jettison functionality, realistic pressurization and de-pressurization effects, realistic icing effects on the airframe and windows, realistic engine wear and failures based on maintenance settings, and more.


Installation and Compatibility




To install the Milviz SP3 add-on, you need to have either FSX (with SP2), FSX: Steam Edition, Prepar3D v2.5/v3.0/v3.4, or Prepar3D v4 installed on your computer.

The Milviz SP3 add-on is compatible with most third-party scenery and weather add-ons, as well as other aircraft add-ons that do not conflict with its systems or models. However, some users have reported issues with certain add-ons such as Active Sky Next, FTX Global Vector, Orbx FTX regions, REX Texture Direct, and others. These issues may include incorrect runway textures, inaccurate terrain elevation data, missing airport features, or performance degradation. To avoid these issues, it is recommended that you check the compatibility list on the Milviz website or forum before installing any other add-ons.
