Can I suggest you give us a clue what sort of thing you fancy?i.e. single or twin general aviationtwin turbopropregional airlinerlarge airlinermilitaryhelicopterancient or modernand then most importantly, whether you are willing to pay or want to try something for free.Also, it would help if you gave some details of the PC and video card you are using. Some add-ons need a top rate machine to run them, being far more advanced than the standard FS models.

If you are looking for good payware aircraft http://www.flight1.com/ is a good place to start. You'll find tons of great addons to transform your flying experiance. The options are endless. While you're at it there are 1000's of good freeware sceneries waiting to be downloaded too. This site http://walhalla.mine.nu/fs2004.php lists ALL the freeware scenery available for downloading.Welcome to the community and feel free to come back with any questions you may have. Dave F.

I would follow up on Alchim inquiry: what do you want to fly??? In particular I was thinking that if you like old airliners there are very good freeware available; e.g. old props: calclassic, old jets: HJG. If you narrow things down a bit I'm sure you will get much help from all of us. Mike

Project Opensky offers the best, most realistic jets -- they can be challenging to fly for someone new.<< www.projectopensky.com >>If you want to prep and plan like a real commercial pilot, and learn jetliner procedures inside out, PMDG is the way to go. << http://www.precisionmanuals.com/ >>If your interests lie along that route, there is a free 747 here in the AVSIM library -- Ready for Pushback, or RFP -- that until just recently was payware, so you might want to start with that one before you spend money on at PMDG '47, just until you're sure you want to expend that much effort before you actually get into the air.If you don't mind paying $25 bucks (USD) and you're not really interested in strict, time consuming set up procedures, I just bought the complete Boeing package by Overland/Simmer's Sky. The models are very forgiving (much more so than POSKY's) and their flying characteristics are similar to the default Aircraft, which makes them a lot of fun to fly, you get 6 or 7 models, there are tons of free liveries available.<< http://www.fspilotshop.com/product_info.php?products_id=972 >>Rest assured that this hobby's choices are almost endless.

All good suggetsions.8 years ago when I started to become interested in add ons, the first place I went was flightsim.com. Back then they had the edge on add on files. AVISM is the best site for add ons now and has been for the last several years IMHO.One thing flightsim.com has are very simple tutorials for adding aircraft, sound, scenery and panels. If you are not familiar with the process, check them out. They will save you a lot of time. They helped me a quite a bit by laying out the fs file structure and telling me where things usually go. Of course, if you need additional help, these forums are a wealth of information. Search and you can find almost anything you are looking for.
