Best Ga plane

Recommended Posts

Hi all, what's the best GA plane, 64bits compatible?

 

I know Carenado make planes that I'm looking at, but who else is there with x plane? A good VC is essential as I use track IR.

 

I'm slowly putting this jigsaw together, and it's looking beautiful!

I would agree, the King Air, although in my opinionh the Carenado Baron B58 is still my personal second.

I don't have it but the Saab 340 looks real good.

Well, I wouldn't say that the Saab is bad, but I wouldnt describe the Saab as a GA plane.

From Wikipedia:

General aviation (GA) is all civil aviation operations other than scheduled air services and non-scheduled air transport operations for remuneration or hire.[1] General aviation flights range from gliders and powered parachutes to corporate jet flights. The majority of the world's air traffic falls into this category, and most of the world's airports serve general aviation exclusively.[2]

 

So technically a C90 wouldn't be GA either .. if it's used on a scheduled route for remuneration or hire (and I'll bet most of them are). The way I understand it is that it's not what it is but how is it being used.

 

The SAAB, C90B, JS32, MU2 and the PC-12 are my favourites.

 

While I've listed the SAAB (and it's definitely a favourite), I don't fly it as much as I'd like because of fps issues on my rig. It's either going to be a plane I fly more when I get a rig that can deal with it .. or I'm VERY hopeful that the patch will improve the fps issues that I have with it.

Mu-2 by X-Aviation is my vote. Unique plane and very well done.

Carenado have a sale going right now. I would pick up the B58 for sure, at $14 it's a steal. It's the most smooth-flying X-Plane aircraft I've tried so far, although I haven't tried many.

Yes :) ..

 

I should also add the AN-2 from Red Eyes (X-Plane) and the Aerosoft Extended Twotter (FSX!) .. both very much favourites of mine!

 

I know the Twotter is FSX .. however I live in fervent hope that Aerosoft will soon port this wonderful aircraft to X-Plane!

I second the free PA-18A Cub and thanks for the pointer on ELA07-S, looks amazing.  I regularly use the Carenado F33A. the X-Aviation's Cessna Corvalis TT is also very good.  I have not tried any twin engine yet in X-Plane but I bought the MU-2 when it was on sale and have not flown it yet.  The VC for that is also very good.

The default C90B King Air is a great aircraft and is already in your fleet without buying anything.  Of course, all the others mentioned, especially the MU2, are excellent!

An2 fsx vs X-plane 10 versions...

 

A friend of mine has given me the best references for both. He actually owns both ans says they're on pair

 

I also have the An-24, but it's a complex aircraft and I haven't yet found the time to properly studdy all of it's features...

Does awall86's Baron work with 10.25 64bit?

 

Yes John, it does.

 

JComm! Congratulations on your 'promotion'! :)  I too would like to get to know the AN 24 better.

Thx pryoski!  Unfortunatelly the next couple of days will have me busy at work, and I have to read the documents that make up the rules/norms/guides that a moderator here at AVSIM has to know and adhere to in order to be able to perform as supposed - not an easy task, but the truth is, I spend most ( say 95% ) of my internet time at AVSIM, so, not being able to help in some other way, I have several times thought about how I could help and cooperate with the AVSIM team... Having been kindly invited to join the moderation group here I am trying this way to offer my contribution, although I am counscious of the requirements if one really wants to do moderation the best way, and I know that I sometimes do not have the time to dedicate to the cause... I will also most certainly ask you all for help in getting some threads / subjects covered. A pinned thread with X-Plane 10 install and using guidelines, as suggested a few days ago by one of our members is a great idea, but can't be done without asking for your help, suggestions, contributions. At present I am not specifically assigned to the X-Plane Forums, because I'm still getting acquainted with the rules, the tasks and the tools required :-)

 

Regarding the An-24, it is really a masterpiece. I believe Felis simulated all of the real aircraft systems. While the jet turbine used for takeoff assistance from smaller fields is simulated too, the fact that it is on the right wing doesn't unfortunately give the same results as those in the real aircraft. The real An-24 has it's props turning anti-clock wise ( CCW ) so, on full power takeoffs, the prop effects cause a considerable yaw to the right, and the jet mounted exactly on the right wing helps countering it. Felis was forced to model to two props as CCW and CW because of the "torque bug", but this can change after 10.30 :-)
