Thank you for purchasing our simulation of Saab 35
Draken, the legendary cold war jet
fighter/interceptor that served in four national air forces during five decades.
This manual only covers installation and use of the latest Bookmark Draken simulations for Lockheed Martin Prepar3D. The Microsoft Flight Simulator versions have their own documentation.
For technical support and feedback, please refer to the Bookmark Simulations website.
The 3D model for Draken was modeled in Autodesk Gmax with the help of original Saab drawings and technical manuals, countless photos, and many hours spent in real Draken cockpits.
The textures were mostly hand drawn in Adobe Photoshop. Photos were not used directly for texturing, with the exception of some minor parts of the panel bitmaps and some of the decals on the wings and tail fin. All photos used in this way are either the property of Bookmark or in the public domain.
Bookmark has not knowingly put anything into Draken that is not owned by Bookmark or unrestricted for commercial use. If you see anything in the installation package or in the documentation that you belive is a copyright violation on our part, please contact Bookmark.
The Flight Manual describes all the simulated systems, gauges and controls in the aircraft and how to use them. At the end of the document is an appendix with technical data, radio frequency tables, procedure check lists and a short glossary.
This is a complex simulation of an old military jet. Most of the instruments and switches in the cockpit are not labeled in English, and they may sometimes not be very intuitive regarding their function. We strongly recommend that you read through the Installation and Normal operating procedures chapters before continuing.
All components of the current version that are present in the simulations are described in the Flight Manual. Some systems and functions that are not simulated are described anyway, either because they are visible in the cockpit or because they are related to one of the simulated functions.
Font styles and colors that are used in this documentation to indicate special content:
Key sequence or mouse action
Label in the cockpit
Warning light or indicator on the instrument panel
Cross-reference link to another section of this manual
Link to a website or other external resource
This is additional non-critical information that may enhance your experience of Draken.
This indicates important information. Ignoring it may result in degraded performance, system malfunctions or losing control of the aircraft.

Although I am presently the only one left on the development team, this has never been a one-man effort. Credit is due to all those who have contributed to this project over the years, but especially to:
The many former Draken pilots and mechanics who generously provided me with obscure details about Draken and invaluable help with testing and fine-tuning the simulation.
The dedicated people at F10 Kamratförening and the Air Museum in Ängelholm for help and encouragement, and for providing unlimited access to the real Draken aircraft and to the original flight manuals and technical documentation.
Our faithful (and patient) customers and friends in the flightsimming community for technical and moral support, testing, and general know-how.
Family members, significant others and assorted pets. You know who you are.
