The F-86E/F Sabre 'slatted wing' version, is our first of an ongoing series of highly detailed F-86 Sabre models for FS9 (and eventually for FSX) developed by SECTION F8, a new Microsoft Flight Simulator add-on development team dedicated to the venerable North American F-86 Sabre.
Because flight characteristics and systems have been so accurately reproduced, a pilot's flight manual and check list are provided. For a more rewarding and realistic F-86 experience, we strongly recommend that you read the manual and other important reference materials before taking your first flight.
If you have not already done so, you can download our freeware F-86 Sabre Base Pack, a recent Service Pack, or a Skins Package here. For questions, comments, or support, please visit our Forums.
Scheduled for future development will be the F-86A version and hard wing variants of the E and F models and the CAC CA-26/27 Sabres. We also hope to produce the all weather 'radar' variant F-86D 'Sabre Dog' and its K and L derivatives, as well as the F-86H. We love the sea, and aircraft carriers too. So we wont forget the ole FJ-2 Fury either.
The Section F8 team is pleased to be the recipient of the Avsim Freeware Gold Award. You can read the full review on our first F-86 Sabre here.
