Geof's Beechcraft Debonair (you can get it here at AVSIM) is a hefty download (24 MBs!) but it's well worth it (requires Pro version of FS2002).At www.flightsim.com , there is a nice scenery set for Tenerife Norte (GCXO) available.There's also a Dassault Falcon 50 out for FS2002 Pro (also available at AVSIM), which is an excellent bizjet, IMO.www.carenado.com also has some nice freeware aircraft, but you'll need to get the FS2002 fixes that are available on the same site.All I can think of for now. :)

I will second the Falcon 50, its a great aircraft and comes with good documentation. Also any of the FS2002 DC8's available from Historic Jetliners Group. They also have a nice KC135. The DeHavilland Beaver is a very good bush plane, available as a package with wheels, floats, or skis.Be sure to get FSUIPC a must have utility for third party aircraft.Finally, although it costs $30, FS Navigator is a great add on for navigating, making flight plans, checking VOR, ILS frequencies, etc. I use it on every flight.

Get anything by POSKY. Hard on lower end systems, but well worth it for the quality. TrafficTools, AFCAD, cloud packs from FSW, etc. If I kept writing, I could probably remember many more.

Also, anything by Brian Gladden or Mikko Maliniemi, the two kings of freeware GA. And, might I suggest Reality XP cloud packs, available here at avsim.com.Scott

I would have to agree with all the post's that you've received so far.But, my favorite is realstars.It adds a tremendous amount of stars to the night sky, which is alot more realistic than what MS had.I really enjoy flying at night now.KJ

My favorites:P51 Mustang. Just for starters, has Steve Small's signature flight dynamics. Pull a few too many Gs and watch the screen go black (very cool)Bill Grabowski's ERJ 145 panel (complete with Embraer aircraft). This is simply jaw dropping (unfortunately, it also drops frame rates which can be a problem on a low end system).

1. Autogenius2. Lennart's textures at least if u r flying europe (will not work good with Lennart's textures unless u put a little work in it).3. Ocean FX4. Falcon 50 as mentioned above5. There are some nice new water reflections too I forgot which file they r though.6. Stearman7. the latest MS Tree Pack (I guess t was MS) if u have a fast system.Regarding payware I would go with Jaco but drop FS maintenance and the scenery enhancer ( I have both and dont like them for several raesons). Instead I would get some serious airports like the GAPs and add the archer and the PSS airbus to my hangar.Alex
