I don't know a lot about airliners,but the 737 from Dreamfleet is the one I prefer :)It got a superb panel,and all liveries are freeware.And for GA aircraft, don't miss the Cessna Cardinal and the Piper, also from Dreamfleet.IMHO the best aircraft out there.For the acrobatic challenge,don't forget to check the SF260 from RealAirSimulations.The Cessna 421 from FlightOne have got a whole lot of stars,I don't own that one myselves,so I can't tell you how it is.But from what I have read about it,it rocks!There is a 310 coming from Dreamfleet in a while :)Johnny"I'LL BE BACK"[div align=center]http://www.avsim.com/hangar/fly/josve/fly2/vas.gif ][/div

Check out the FSD site. http://www.fsd-international.com/Great Piper Cheyenne!Check out Flight1.http://www.flight1.com/downloads.htmI hear that the Cessna 421C is one of the best payware GA planes ever.Check out DreamFleet.http://www.dreamfleet2000.com/I have the Archere II and it's lovely looking and flies like a dream.The Cardinal looks rather good too!Check out Real Air Simulationshttp://www.realairsimulations.com/home.htmlThis on has to be flown to be believed. It's compact, stylish, fast and it has the best FS2002 flight model ever made.That'll probably do for starters? :)Take care with that card though!Cheers,Simon.

It depends on your credit limit. If it is a platinum card, just buy a real 172. A little personal finance suggestion - a debit card will work just like a credit card but it won't let you overspend. Also, there is no interest. Think about it!David

:-lolI'm extremely happy with the Dreamfleet Cardinal and the RealAir Simulations SF.260.Also very nice planes are Bill Lyons' Waco and Tiger Moth. Actually, anything by the Golden Eagle Squadron is pretty impressive.http://windrfters.com/

First of all I must join in the chorus of using a debit card. Rack up a lot of credit card expenses and lose your job and you're screwed. Screw up your credit and forget buying a car or a house.Ok..the planes I own and know are high quality are:1. Siah-Marchetti SF-260 (http://www.realairsimulations.com/home.html)2. 421C Golden Eagle (http://www.flight1.com/esd-products.asp?product=421C-001)3. DF 737-400 (http://www.flight1.com/esd-products.asp?product=ga737)And get these 2 freeware planes:1. Falcon 50 CAEA (here in the AVSIM file library)2. Northrop Talon (http://www.fsd-international.com)Good Luck!

You'd be well advised to NOT use your debit card for ANY online purchases. Unlike a credit card, your bank will not protect you if you debit card number is stolen and your account is drained. If you have $100,000 in a checking account, and you use a debit card that draws from that account on the internet and that account number is somehow stolen, they could drain your account empty and the bank will do NOTHING. That money is gone forever.

True - that is bank-dependant. I work for a local bank and we also afford the depositor with the same fraud protections against their debit card as one would have against a credit card.Originally, debit cards WERE tough to find without such protections, but now the reverse is true (at least in my dealings).But on to the meat of the topic:Before ANY planes, buy FS Navigator. It is useful in pretty much every MSFS situation you could find yourself in. As far as planes, I have mainly heavy airliner experience... And even though it's old, I would whole-heartedly recommend either the 767-PIC or the Dreamfleet 737. The 767 is very complex and considered the standard to which all addons are compared, and the 737 is a great plane for those who prefer shorter flights and a just slightly less complex experience. Both will give you new insights into how airline flights actually operate, from autopilots to maneuvering. Good luck in whatever plane you decide to buy!-GReg

Hi David,"a debit card will work just like a credit card but it won't let you overspend. Also, there is no interest. "True, I can't disagree there!I would add though- since this person is a newbie to charge cards- that in case of charge card fraud, with a debit card it's your money being stolen. With a credit card, it's the bank's. The bank is likely to support you and not go after the fraudulent payments, providing you go through the reporting process. But you'll never get to see your own money again unless you have some sort of insurance.I too have a debit card, just for the reasons you wrote about. But I'd never put it on the 'net, I use a limited credit card for that.Bruce.

If you can wait 2 months (or less) or buy more than one plane .. consider this project that promises to leave all the above in the dust .. Piper Meridian from Flight1/Relaity-XP. Michael J.

I would add some caution to that debit card thing.First, very good to be extremely frugal with use of the credit card. Those things can be dangerous. (I learned that lesson the very hard way when I got out of college about 20 years ago now.) Pay it everymonth in full if you can. Use revolving credit for emergencies where possible.Debit cards directly hit your bank account so you're not playing withsomebody elses money, but they also do not have the credit fraud protection that credit cards have. Credit cards can indemnify youfor loss or theft. Debit card numbers allow the recipient to cleanout your bank account with very little you can do if they get into thehands of the wrong folks. Wise not to use them for internet purchases as a matter of habit, though the merchants so far mentioned here are mostly very trustworthy. Eric

That is absolutely NOT true. A couple of years ago my Visa Debit card was hit. A few hours later I happened to get online and see that my bank balance had dropped by $500.00.I made a phone call to the bank and they immediately cancelled the card number and credited the account the amount lost. I lost nothing!Make sure that what you post is accurate.Rick

That's not just relevant to online purchases, but to ALL use of a debit card.The banks make no difference between use online or offline, and offline the chances of the number being stolen are that much higher.

Sorry... but that simply is not true. Your debit card has the same protection as a credit card.
