The best heavy you can purchase for FS9. Rock solid and a complete full depth simulation.Regards

Thanks for the info. Guess I'll have to start saving up for it!
Good thinking. It's sufficiently different from Boeing to make it a worthwhile purchase. With the addition of the AOA training package, if you can afford that as well, you'll have hours of fun for your money. One of my all time favorite FS9 purchases.

+ Much perhaps! The MCU is unique. Maybe closer to the Airbuses. You dont land @135knts! :( Edited by Barnstormer1

Yep you need to forget your Boeing training as the MD11 is actually a highly automated aircraft. It's fairly easy to get your head around however and after I'd watched a couple of tutorials I was away. It's from PDMG so as you'd expect, the attention to detail is obsessive and all the things that I wish the iFly 737 could do are there in the MD11. The only things I struggle with are the fairly high approach speeds (with a fairly narrow margin between stall speed and overspeeding the flaps, for added excitement) and the fact that the push/pull/rotate MCP click spots are a bit small and fiddly and are easy to miss in turbulence if you're using a bit of a active camera shake. The other thing you notice compared to the iFly 737 is how high up you sit, and how easy it is to taxi!

Out of curiosity: what are the things?

Nothing much to do with the flying experience itself but better functionality on the ground, i.e ability to fuel via the FMC, open doors individually, connect ground services, load different panel states quickly. The iFly's functionality in this respect is much more basic, although it is promised in the upcoming update so fingers crossed.

I would rate it as the second-best commercial add-on for FS9 (the iFly 737 being #1 by far), and the best heavy commercial add-on for FS9.
