Aerosoft is currently developing a CRJ with Digital Aviation. Not sure when it will be released though. Best Regards,

I like the FeelThere ERJ 2.0 quite a bit for regional jet stuff...

+1. Wish there were a CRJ to those standards, too... For FSX.

Did FeelThere step it up with the 2.0 version? I just remember the original being very disappointing in terms of system/AP/FMC simulation

Hence the "V2.0". :( But seriously, yes. It's exterior model/systems/VC are much better. It's my in my top 5 favorite FS9 aircraft and one of my regulars in FSX.

Hey all I have 2 years of flying and teaching the ERJ-145 at a regional airline and I can tell you the Wilco V 2 is very accurate. The flight model is very representative of the real airplane. I was impressed that they got the nose drop after main gear touchdown right. You have to use the real technique to land well without banging down the nose gear. The performance numbers are very accurate as well. The time to climbs were right on as well as the takeoff and landing distances. They only reason I stopped using it was because my old computer got terrible FPS in the VC. The external model is great as are the McPhat liveries that you can buy.Hiram Hunt

Oh hardy har har. But seriously, thanks for the input zach and blackheart. Might have to pick this baby up as I live by dfw and can do tons of routes. So wilco/feelthere actually made an accurate plane. I had up till now written them off...

If you want something a bit more unusual, Aerosim's NAMC YS-11 is good fun. The VC is a bit spartan by fancier payware standards, but it is nevertheless a worthwhile add-on if you want a biggish twin turboprop, although there can be little doubt that PMDG's J41 is a lot more bang for your bucks.Al

The ERJ v2.0 looks nice. But it looks like it only supports 32 bit systems. I got burned with the Wilco 737PIC that I paid for and never worked on my 64 bit system, so I've been real wary of that since.

Works like a charm on my 64b Windows 7. If you read carefully, you'll notice that Feelthere doesn't officially support 64b. What the site doesn't say is that the products won't work on 64b systems. Furthermore, Feelthere has a friendly support forum and helped me once regardless of my 64b OS. I'm sure you tried that over there with your product, right?!I love their 737PIC (though it's antiquated) and got in on CD years ago.

I wonder if there's a Piedmont Airlines paint scheme. You've piqued my interest... Those RR Darts sound wonderful in person.

I never said it didn't "run" on 64-bit. I said I was "wary" because I got burned before by the same scenario. Think about it. Stating "we don't say it won't work" and then "we don't officially support it" doesn't exactly instill a lot of confidence. Just because it works on your system, doesn't mean it'll work on mine, and if it doesn't, then what? No support. And yes, I tried the forums and direct support only to be told "sorry, don't know what to tell you, but we don't support 64 bit". Catch my drift? <_<Back on topic...I have both variations of the RealAir Beech Duke and both are phenomenal!

I wholeheartedly apologize. :(

No Piedmont paint scheme by default, mostly it is Japanese domestic airlines that are little known outside of the land of the Rising Sun that come with the thing by default, although there is a paint kit, so it is not beyond the realms of possibility to get any paint job you like on the thing. A few US and South American airlines operated them in addition to Piedmont, so they did make it out of Japan even though it wasn't a massive commercial success, what with less than 200 ever built, but still, that's a lot more than the number of J-41s ever built.Al

The Majestic Dash-8 Q-400 looks promising. Their Q300 is looking a bit tired now, but it was a hard-core realistic.Jeff
To keep me busy and since I dont have time for long haul right now, with the 744X I am looking for a regional plane. I love the Dash-8 but the majestic Dash-8 panels look horrible. Their Q400 does look much better but looking for something now before the NGX. Thinking of Flight-1 ATR as I am not a fan of only VC flying if not the J-41 would be a easy choice. Any other choices? I will have to look at the ERJ. Steven Herzberg

Just Flight have a Vickers Viscount on the way for FSX apparently, although it'll be a while before it is out since I don't think they've even announced it officially yet, so if it is a secret, well then, it isn't any more LOL. Probably being made by Aeroplane Heaven I would think, although that's just a guess.Al

They only write that because none of their developers use 64-bit machines (no idea why, it's fast becoming the standard). There's no problems with it on 64-bit Win7 though, I fly it all the time.

Hehe, so if I go out and buy it and it doesn't work, it's your fault! :( Just kidding. Glad to hear it. May just go pick up a copy. A small regional jet would nice to add to the inventory.
