Add Moving Parts To All of Your Planes
Aircraft Animator is the simplest tool yet for adding moving propellers, landing gear, flaps, spoilers and landing lights to Flight Simulator aircraft. With just a few mouse clicks, you can turn "tired and sleepy" planes into dynamic, exciting aircraft.
You don't have to be a designer to use Aircraft Animator. You'll need neither Aircraft Factory 99 nor Flight Shop except for advanced animation of rudders, elevators, ailerons, and other parts.
Aircraft Animator is able to sniff out those flaps, propellers and landing gear and set them in motion in no time flat!
Yes, he's created a marvelous tool that just about anyone can use. Here's what the these excited users say about Konstantin's Amazing Aircraft Animator

Aircraft with Moving Parts
Moving parts aren't new. However, they aren't widely available yet. The reason is that creating a plane with moving parts has always been one of those black arts. Designers have had to "jump through hoops" in order to animate the control surfaces.
We're hoping to make hoop jumping a thing of the past by introducing you to Aircraft Animator.
Konstantin Kukushkin, affectionately known as Dr. Flight Sim, is a well-known internist of flight sim medicine. In his research and development activities he's uncovered ways to add moving parts to Flight Shop and Aircraft Factory 99 planes. The result is Aircraft Animator, a simple, yet ingenious utility that everyone can use.
After using Aircraft Animator, your "plain jane" aircraft will never be the same.
Retractable Landing Gear
Just 3 Clicks to Moving Parts
When you first start Aircraft Animator, it collects information about all of the aircraft that are in your FS2000, FS98 or CFS folders.
For basic animation, first select your FS2000, FS98 or CFS system. All of your aircraft are displayed in AA's drop down menu. Notice you don't need Aircraft Factory 99 or Flight Shop to add these moving parts.
The example dialog box on the right shows a partial list of this user's Flight Simulator 98 aircraft. Simply scroll through the list and select the aircraft which you'd like to animate and click Next.
The Wizard - Selecting an Aircraft
The Wizard will tell you what types of animation it can perform for the selected aircraft:
In the example to the right, Aircraft Animator has determined that it can add rotating propeller, moving landing gear and moving flaps.
Just check those parts that you'd like to animate and then click Next.
The Wizard - Choosing the Parts
Click on the "Proceed with manual editing" radio button to perform more advanced animation.
Depending on how the original aircraft was designed, these parts may need additional "manual editing". Using the manual mode, you may also be able to animate other control surfaces:
