Thanks for that - downloading now. Though I think the rest of Europe is as well as it's a slow one :-) Still, no panic.

Think I got out of bed on the wrong side this morning. Been feeling a bit grouchy! Sunday syndrome?! But after checking Avsim front page just now, my mood has ascended to much loftier heights!It is indeed a slow download, but in half an hour I should be in heaven!Can't wait!Al.

Well worth the wait.Excellent, fully functional Autoland. One of the best I've seen on FS9.Flares, idles throttles, extends spoilers and lift-dumpers, holds centerline, auto-brakes, then retracts all spoilers, lift-dumpers AND flaps and automatically engages the taxi speed function. Great little aircraft. Love the Tame repaint (I do a lot of flying in Ecuador).A big Thank You to Project Fokker. A very nice addition to your other excellent Fokker models.

More on Autoland. Also found out that if you set yourself up on the approach at about 250 kts and hit the ILS and Land buttons, the Autoland function also looks after your apporach and landing speeds, flap settings and undercarriage. Trying to see if it will make me a coffee while I'm sitting back enjoying the ride!:-)

Hi John,"hit the ILS and Land buttons, the Autoland function also looks after your apporach and landing speeds, flap settings and undercarriage."""No, it won't make you a coffee, neither will it serve you a beer :-).But as the manual says: you only need to activate LND, even if you are flying with Autopilot Off at LND activation; ALL the rest is done for you :-).You can even activate LND long before the ILS is even detected (provided you are at a correct Localiser interception incerception course, and the aircraft has enough time to descend to 3000 Ft AGL).Cheers, Rob

Disappointment. "a feeling of dissatisfaction that results when your expectations are not realized"Project Fokker have never promised a VC.

My god John... With all due respect, but is this also the way you talked to your spouse when she told you she was dissapointed with your sex life..?Rob "Holland&Holland" de Vries http://fool.exler.ru/sm/fly2.gif"To go up, pull the stick back. To go down, pull the stick back harder"

I've only done one short flight and done a quick scan of the manual, but this looks to be a great aircraft. Love the analog panel, the autopilot that does its work but makes the pilot do some of the flying. Not all of us care about a VC, but good framerates are appreciated. Thankyou, Project Fokker!Dale

I rarely use VC, so I was not disappointed in the least. If anything, I was more than pleased. I think it's the best flying plane Project Fokker has done to date; and better than many payware.Thanks, PF for an outstanding aircraft.Bob

so because its free that gives people no right to ask for a VC? do you want me to list the amazing freeware addons with high quality VCs?
