I am looking for aircraft addons

 

Jets

Passenger, cargo, executive, military?

 

Props

Passenger, cargo, executive, military?

 

Single, twin, triple, four engined or glider perchance?

 

 Maybe you fancy helicopters?

 

There are many, many choices available out there in payware land.  If you could just be a little bit more specific we would be glad to provide appropriate, and targeted, recommendations.

Thank you for your suggestions so far. I will definitely take them in to consideration. My preference is more modern things so mainly civil jets, however I know there are some good modern GA addons out there so also these too.

The aforementioned iFly Boeing 737 series is probably at the top of the heap right now.  Also warmly recommended is the QualityWings Ultimate 146 Collection (BAe146 and Avro RJ series.)  Both available through Flight 1.

 

Good value is the Feelthere E Jets - Embraer 175 and 195, often on sale from Feelthere themselves and all third party resellers.

 

Can't forget the PMDG MD11 tri-jet.  An excellent wide body aircraft coming with cargo variant as well.

 

Also LH's Fly the Maddog (MD88) if you prefer an older rear-engined commuter.

 

For GA/Executive jets try Eaglesoft, Just Flight, Lionheart, FSD.

 

Plenty of other worthies too if the above don't appeal.

 

Best of luck.

Thank you so much for all the great suggestions guys. I am still thinking but I am probably going to go for the ifly 737!

Just wondering, what are your thoughts on the PMDG 747?

I like it. If you're into the heavy jets and systems programming, go for it.

Would you say there was anything on the same level which is better?(excluding the ifly 737).

Are you asking me in regards to the Boeing 747-400 or just planes in general. Remember, you're the one flying the plane. I could tell you the QualityWings 757 is a great 757 out of all the 757s that are available out there, but if you're heavy into the systems PMDG-style, the QualityWings 757 won't do you any good since that's a mid-range product. In other words, for that one, you do have a working FMC, but some of the things, like zero fuel weight and gross weight, are already entered into the FMC for you.

Planes in general (is there anything better than the pmdg in your opinion, which is also high fidelity)

It was not payware, but the best ever plane for FS9 - Project Tupolev 154M.

Simply stunning, I miss that one in FSX.

In FSX you can stilly fly Tu-154B-2 version, which is significantly older and lacks some of the systems. However, as for FS9 the Project Tupolev Tu-154M along with the Vitamin VC is one of the best planes you can get... Once learned never to regret it.

 

If you're lazy, then Level-767 might be the best one... Also modelled really well.

Don't think real world or sim pilots would appreciate that sentiment.

No insult intented, only what I meant to say automated FMC equipped aircraft are significantly easier to fly/learn than a Tu-154 which always relies on the pilot, not computers. Hence modern airliners are easier for the newbie once they learn the FMC.
