Yeah dont you just love it. Like you real very own plane. Some may say the Commander is "Long in the Tooth". But it has a timeless beauty and style that defies the critics. The FSD Commander was the first GA Airplane for FS2K2 that set so many standards even today many developers have a hard time keeping up with it. In fact some dont even try!And Guess what! It has so many devoted (myself included) followers that FSD-International is upgrading it to a GMAX version so don't worry you will be able to fly this One of a kind when the next version of Flight Simulator comes out.Dennis

Ok first you should get the Norwegian Airports for FS2002.You'll find it here.http://www.flightsim.no/cgi-bin/file/download.cgi?ID=854And the updatehttp://www.flightsim.no/cgi-bin/file/update1.cgi?ID=854The Airport I use most is ENBR,located on the west coast.So if you go ENCN-ENBR-ENVA you will have a very nice trip up the Norwegian coast with the high mountains and all the fjords :)Johnny"I'LL BE BACK"[div align=center]http://www.avsim.com/hangar/fly/josve/zone.jpg ][/div

Especially with the two Scandinavian meshes (sp?) from Lago. For 5 Euro a piece I find them very worth while.

Have been flying it since the Spring on a trip around the US- departed KMMU,my home base, down to the Florida Keys, up the West coast over to Texas then up into the High Country of the Southwest. Just landed yesterday at LAS VEGAS on my way to LA. Am doing 150 to 200 mile hops at a time. Cross referencing many POH operating parameters with the real thing...per Commander's website.Great performer, especially the Turbo up in the high counrty. Been as high as FL220 with tailwing GS of 202 kts just yesterday!Have enough speed to keep up in the pattern with the jets yet nimble enough to pull into a local strip.Question- On the descents out of altitiude...above 15,000, what is the proper way to manage Temps. The POH from FSD says to just maintain CHT by keeping MP above 15"...very easy...I don't think it is that easy in real life.Logging so much time in this plane I feel the best way to manage Temps out of the FL's is to keep ##### at 1400 on the descent. By doing this, everything seems to take care of itself.Anyway, great plane and love flying it under ATC in FS2002.Next Step is AVSIM...I'm over synthesized voices.

I'm have been thinking about getting the Super Cub 180, but haven't found any review for the updated FS2002 version, only FS2000. Can anybody post some links to reviews, or tell us how good this plane is compared to current standards? I only fly in the virtual cockpit, so this is the most important feature for me ...Bye,VOlker :]

Of course I'm a little biased toward FSD aircraft but when I am in VC mode with the Super Cub sometimes I forget that I am not in 2D and wonder why clicking on the buttons and knobs does not work. :-)I think it has a great VC (I fly VC also).

Put on the Oxygen, slow down the rate to keep the speed up above FL180 and gradually lift your way up to FL220.MP will bleed down to about 31" and you will be leaning like crazy but it's all worth it when your are humping along at 190 kts plus and sipping 15.9 g/ph!And no-pone to bother you but the big boys coming up and down out of the flight levels.Oh yeah, the ride is silky smooth up there too.

The thing I noticed about the FSD Cub is in a crosswind you will learn just how a taildragger can bite you in the rear :-lol. It can be trickyDennis
