Just a note; when I installed the Cessna 152 by Carenado, my FS2002 would crash like crazy. When I removed it, everything went back to normal, just occasional crashes. :-hah

Me too. Crashed every single time. I have not uninstalled it yet, but I am about to.

That's interesting about the Carenado... I have not had a single crash with this aircraft (I have the red one installed). I do believe there is an FS2002 update that you can download, are you sure you have that?

Just my opinion, but...I think the Levigne/Banting/Young Dassault Falcon 50 (fal50c2.zip) is one of the finest bizjets available... and there are plenty of repaints available.

Hehe, I knew folks would start chiming in. :-)There are MANY more fine freeware offerings, no doubt. My list was not even close to being comprehensive. It's an ongoing project... more will be listed in future versions!It just takes a little while to get the filename, exact authorship, etc. etc. But I've been wanting to do this for a while. So many fine freeware offerings, we really need to be reminded of them every once in a while. :-)
