SibWings SAAB 91 Safir

Compatibility: Flight Simulator X, Flight Simulator 2004

At first glance the name of this unique aircraft may not grab your attention, but once you have sampled the extremely high quality of modelling you will be totally smitten by this outstanding aircraft! The SibWings SAAB Safir (Sapphire) is a truly exquisite diamond of craftsmanship for both Flight Simulator X and FS2004.

The team at SibWings Lab has lovingly re-created this unique Swedish aircraft in exacting detail, all the way from the unique fuselage shape through to the distinctive liveries and the beautifully rendered and detailed Virtual cockpit. The Safir is supplied with a very comprehensive PDF manual.
 
The Safir is supplied in four very different liveries, both military and civilian. The virtual cockpit is a work of art, and the detail and animations throughout the aircraft are amazing. Each of the four models has a dedicated custom virtual cockpit, and pilots will feel so at home in the VC that no 2D panel is included.

If you want to experience a unique aircraft and are a connoisseur of the very highest quality flight sim aircraft, then step in to the Safir!

"Without a doubt this is a superior product. You feel that every aspect has come under close scrutiny and has been modelled as close to perfect as is possible. In this aircraft you effectively get 4 aircraft each with its own characteristics and personality!" Mutley's Hangar

"Brilliant aircraft" Sim-Reviews.co.uk

"Modeling is excellent, along with paint jobs and textures... Animated pilot moves realistically and even looks human!... Beautiful cockpit and interior... An excellent flight model" FarmBoyZimsFlightSims.com

"Simply put, this is one of the best add-ons I have ever flown" Avsim.com (Gold Star award)

"It’s light on the frames and it’s well done, internally and externally. A winner among its peers" FSRunway.it

"Such an amazing virtual cockpit and individual handling demands your attention... If all planes came out with such quality, detail and testing the flight sim world would be an even more satisfying place... This is a classic" FS2004.co.uk

"The attention to detail is simply outstanding. Effectively you are getting four aircraft as each version has its own appearance and flight dynamics modelled in depth... it really is a stunning and exquisitely detailed model... I honestly believe this must be one of the best add-on general aviation or vintage aircraft ever developed for FS 2004" Sim Pilot magazine

"Both variants offer state-of-the-art features, marvellous detail, and are fun to fly... The internal night lighting has been very nicely done indeed... The visual modelling is just top notch... Some clever animations... It will certainly become one of my favourite GA add-ons - be it in FS2004 or FSX!" PC Pilot

"Dripping with eye candy and wondrous aesthetic gloss... The attention to detail is awesome, as is the flight model – in other words an essential add-on... Audio and visual nirvana... The little details have the wow factor... The Safir is a heavyweight add-on with more tricks up its sleeve than Harry Houdini... A Scandinavian beauty whose photorealistic looks and hidden secrets make it an FSX bombshell" Aircraft Illustrated (5/5 - Flight Sim of The Month, May 2009)

"The Safir package offers state-of-the-art features, marvellous detail and whether you want to fly circuits or tour the country, it is simply fun to fly day or night!" PC Pilot Essential Guide to GA Aircraft
