Both are top quality aircraft. The 421C is the more recent, and has a ton of different liveries. It also has a novel approach to the cockpit gauges. With its Service Pack, it is hugely fun to fly.The Cheyenne flies like a dream, and has a more traditional FS Cockpit. It is also kinder on frame rates.Which to get ? My money is on both - if you can't buy both at once, toss a coin, get one, save up, and get the other one. If this seems like a cop-out - it is ! I wouldn't be without both.Oh, and the Archer is a must-have as well !

As others have said they're both top notch aircraft. I think deciding on what kind of flying you do might help you with the decision. The Cheyenne is more suited for long range flights. It is faster and flies higher than the 421C. Its turbine powered as opposed to the piston powered 421C. As far as FS2002 goes, the add-on GPS system that comes with the 421C is really cool. I think the Cheyenne has the best VC of all the planes that I have, especially the night lighting. The 421C is a dream to fly, I fly it about 80% of the time now. You cant go wrong with either of them honestly. Hmmm, not sure if I helped or rambled.-------------Michael

No, Michael, I think you're echoing the feelings of many of us who own both. I agree with Alistair's recommendation:"Which to get ? My money is on both - if you can't buy both at once, toss a coin, get one, save up, and get the other one. If this seems like a cop-out - it is ! I wouldn't be without both."Regards,
