I think it depends on what type of flying you want to do. Do you prefer high and fast, or low and slow? I prefer high and fast, but I do have about three low and slow planes.My favorite low and slow GA's:DreamFleet's Archer IIIRealAir Scout Package 2006Carenado Cessna U206G Stationair 6 II (Full Pack)My favoite high and fast GA's:Digital Aviation/Aerosoft Piper Cheyenne PA31TFlight 1 Piper MeridianAeroworx B200 King Air

>What would you guys recommend? Pay or Freeware. >Thanks ahead.>KennethHmmm, the question is meaningless as stated. What type of flying do you want to do? That answer will determine any answers we could give. Do you want to do aerobatics? A plane for that will be much different than a plane for Alaska bush flying. That's why there's such a stable of planes available for DL or for buying. Some models do quite nicely as freeware but for others only the pay group makes a good one.:D

>I always go back to the carenado cessna 206 cargo. love it!Yea, it's a good one. But I'll yell'ya the 182Q may be coming close to becoming my favorite Carenado aircraft yet.....and I didn't think I would ever buy it.Another mentioned above that I'm really enjoying right now is the Dornier Do-27 by Digital Aviation.....and RealAir's stuff is simply incredible...as is Eaglssoft ::)

Love the Carenado 182Q, but the SAAB Safir is my favorite GA ride - incredibly smooth gauges, and you can roll it! John G.

AeroWorx KingAir B200http://www.aeroworx.com/ Purchase here. If you decide to buy flight one is good at protecting what you have purchased and keep into consideration that the cpu world has it's up's and down's and at points and times we upgrade and change things and have to format a hard drive etc... And as long as you backup your purchase key's and keep receipts you can always bring your investment back to life. Experience is the most rewarding education out there as long as it is not learned the hard way. Happy Landings, JoshP.S. FlightOne Purchase link for B200 You will love it. Very detailed for 1 example going into fog landing lights on. You may have to shut the landing lights down and use taxi because lighting will glare off of the fog.http://www.flight1.com/products.asp?product=b200

Kenneth:I tried answering before and for some reason my reply got lost.I said that if you want an aircraft that is good up to FL290 at speeds of 250+ kts and can land at 90 kts on a dirt runway of less than 2000 ft you should try the Flight 1 Pilatus PC-12. It has a great VC and is well worth the price.RichardS

Hi,I have the PC-12 and I regret I bought it. I want to have panels with functional buttons, but the PC12 have several which are not simulated.Because of that you can't follow the checklist included with the AC (start-up). Maybe that's not important for some, but I don't like it.Markku

Let's not forget Milton Shupe and his team's wonderful freeware GA aircrafts. The Beech 18, the Spartan, the Howard 500 and the wonderful Aero Comander. All available here.Nick
