I got my copy yesterday!4 printed books are included in the package! One for general information and for the included airport and their Jeppesen maps, one for the FMC (which is the original FMC of Flight1/Dreamfleet), and 2 for the included aircrafts (A319, ATR42/72, BAe146).I just installed the software yesterday and made a quick check. The package looks fantastic! Maybe someone checked it out more as i did yet...Looks very, very promising!Cheers,Michael

Hello all,I do not post often in here.. but I was wondering about this package. The screenshots looks terrific. Can anyone tell us how much "systems" are simulated ? For example, what us included with the airbus ? pneumatics ? electrical , etc... Regardless , seems like a very good deal.. nice airplanes/panels and airports !Thank you in advanceBruno.

No offense but IMO all it looks like is the IADG Airbus, IADG RJ, and that one guys(can't remember his name, sorry) ATR put together with a few other things and sold.I think I'll pass.Shane

They definitely don't look like some "other".If you can show me better looking panels - I am listening.http://www.ew-projekt.de/report-atr/03.jpghttp://www.fsfd.de/pictures/ATR_OVHD.jpgMichael J.

Im sure the panels are great, but look at all the aircraft models. They look exactly like the freeware models from IADG and the other gentleman who created the ATR.IMO freeware aircraft plus good panels doesn't equal a "great" package. But to each his own :)Shane

One things I care little when I buy a product like this - exterior looks. I happen to sit 99.99% inside the plane. ;-)Michael J.

I do most flying from the outside and actually spend more time painting then flying, lol.The panels do look nice but being an exterior guy I would naturally have less interest in it :)Shane

I don't have the product - just recall what they said on their forum.Yes, there is a fully programmable FMC but it is the DreamFleet's 737 FMC which was adopted to work with all Eurowings aircraft (accounting for obvious perf. differences between all 3 types). If you expect Airbus-style FMC then, no, you won't get it. You can figure you are getting here 3 aircraft plus 6 airports for what other charge for a single airplane so no wonder some compromises were neeeded. For the money I think it is going to be a terrifc value considering absolutely real sounds, flight modelling and time they put into those panels.Michael J.

From the screenshots and product info, I get the impression that the A319 included in the package is not as detailed as the PSS A320. I may be wrong, but it seems to be that because the package includes more than just one aircraft, the level of detail in each individual aircraft panel is compromised for variety. The FMCs for example, uses the stock FMC of the DF737.Thomas

This may be true but from what I heard you can still enjoy going through the full checklists. So all the upper/lower panels are not just dummy bitmaps. Don't know anything about the Airbus, don't plan on using one anyway. But even if there was not a single airplane in the box it still gives me 6 great airports for roughly $7 per airport. Considering that some have audacity to charge $20 for a single airport these days I would think creators of this Eurowings package deserve round of applause.Michael J.

I've bought this because I wanted the sceneries - most notably the Paris CDG. That's because they're designed by Stefan Breuer - who created a fantastic Amsterdam Schipol and Paris CDG for FS98. Plus it is the IADG Avro RJ - which has been remade in GMAX - because the old FSDS model was a frame-rate hog. Add to that there are paintkits included for all the aircraft, and repaints can be posted via their website.http://www.btinternet.com/~rob.corp/images/sig.jpg

I don't understand this.If you look at all that is included in this package, I can't see how one doesn't see this is a good value for the money.Any one part of it doesn't have to be the best. If it were they'd be right to charge a higher price for the overall package.Ernie.

I'm pretty sure there was a thread on this in the old Eurowings Professional forum that mentioned that the RJ is a completely new dsign by a different designer not related to IADG. Anyhow, my copy just arrived in the mail, so I'm happy. Too bad I won't have a computer to use it with until mid October when all my stuff arrives here in Germany. :'(Misha

Hi,I've been playing around with Eurowings for the past few days, so here are some first impressions - pros and cons - for what it's worth.First, you get quite a lot for what sells in Europe for

I don't have the product yet (waiting for the English edition) but I suspect your review is spot on. Like you said the Airbus is probably the weakest link here but ATR & BAe are likely very good. For those who adore hand-flying and short-hops (and I belong to this category) it may be a "must" indeed.Michael J.
