Flysimware has modeled this vintage aircraft using every feature the new sim offers giving you the user the best experience for a realistic simulation. From a interactive copilot, highly accurate gauges to realistic flight dynamics.
The G-44 is an American high-wing, twin-engine, amphibious light aircraft produced by the Grumman Aerospace Corporation. The production aircraft entered service for the militaries of the United States and Britain in the 1940’s which 200 were built. The G-44A is a postwar version with a modified hull which 76 were built. The Widgeon is driven by two wing-mounted Ranger 6-440-C5 six-cylinder engines that each produce 200 horsepower. The airplane has a maximum speed of 160 miles per hour, a climb rate of 1,750 feet per minute, and a ceiling of 18,000 feet. A classic gem in the history of aviation, the Grumman G-44A Widgeon allows pilots to access the sky from either land or water. A go-anywhere craft, the Widgeon provides one of the rarest opportunities to be found in the world of aviation, one that combines piloting with exploration.
