Favourite Plane Right Now

Recommended Posts

What's everyone's favourite FSX plane right now or even your all time favourite one that you can't stop flying? Mine are the latter carenado releases (esp the Caravan EX) and the PMDG 737/Aerosoft Airbus.

Well I am realtivley new to the scene and only have 2 addons (Scout,Decathlon, Citberra and the Lancair Legacy; both RealAir).  I use the Scout etc planes hardly never and mostly fly the lancair.  Love that plane.  Still contemplating my next airplane and this topic may help with that.  But leaning towards a longer distance high flying turbo prop.  Not ready for the big jets yet, still learning navigation etc.

First place tie to both the A2A P-51 Mustang and to the Lionheart Lear 24.

 

Both are outstanding aircraft that are a pure pleasure to fly.

Toss-up:

 

A2A C172 and A2A Cherokee. 

 

They fly SPOT ON and the pre-flight procedures really feel like a real plane. Different birds... I like the RW 172 better but the Cherokee seems more raw and real. 

 

By far the most realistic GA planes available in the sim.

Airplanes I can't stop flying...

  • Flight1 Mustang
  • Carenado PA46 Malibu Mirage

I also fly the Carenado CT210 for getting in and out of small Orbx airports.

Most of you virtual pilots are mostly doing GA nowadays. That's awesome though because me too lol. Props to carenado for releasing fast and modern GA planes on a regular basis. I like the a2a Cessna  along with the maintenance feature but the 172 is too slow. Hopefully, they release faster GA planes. I need to be doing at least 180 lol.

Bonanza F33 is my all time favorite (avionics recently upgraded with a GTN650), but the RealAir planes are all first class!  Scout in particular.

 

At the moment, I am actually having a lot of fun with the new Carenado PC12  B)

If I had to choose one from my dozens of payware and freeware favorite addons? Tie between Carenado 182Q and PMDG MD11!

I can't decide but I've lately been flying the Realair Duke piston in FSX and the Carenado PC12 in P3D.

I'm probably the only one on the forum that will say this...

 

 

 

The Captain Sim 707  :ph34r:  *hides in fear*

I surprisingly like it more than the NGX (mostly because there's more stuff to do when in the air) and it runs better on my PC. It's an AWESOME plane.

...the Aerosoft Beaver merged with the default Beaver VC.

The RealAir B60 (piston) Duke V2 is hands down my favorite.

Honorable mention to my longtime standby the Carenado 337.

And a shout out to one other plane in heavy rotation as of late, the Carenado Malibu Mirage.  The addition of an Arezone soundset and some tweaks from the community have taken a good plane and made it even better.

 

Note that each of these feature solid RXP integration.  I currently use dual 530's in the Duke (yes, I finally broke down and bought the unlimited pack and yes, I should've done it long ago), a single 530 in the 337 and 530/430 combo in the Malibu.

Not too many picks for the PMDG 777.  But that is all I fly now (until the 787 comes out.)

Aerosoft DHC-6 Twin Otter Extended

 

The Default Caravan

 

SA-315B Lama in the mountains.

 

ND's AS-350B3 when Im sick of the Lama.

 

Or Dodosims Jet Box dose fine but what a challenge when mountain flying..... Such a gutless slug.

Hmm, haven't had a good bit of sim time in a while but

 

The A2A Cherokee. Recently soloed in a Cherokee, albeit lesser-powered than the 180, but it's uncanny how accurate they got it.

 

The Concorde X. How do you not enjoy flying the Concorde? There is almost too much going on and it's tiring to stay on top of the airplane but wow is it satisfying to complete a flight in the thing.

 

The Q400. Do I even need to go on?

 

Getting back into the RealAir stuff since it can be used in P3D now, and the Airbus Extended is always a good time. That Lear 24 is looking sweet and I need to get back into Boeings and maybe do some TriStar flights when I can. So many airplanes, so little time!

Man I gotta stop reading these topics, makes me want to just buy them all.  Torn between the Twin Otter, PMDG J41, or the Q400. But I also want an A2A realism aircraft.  This "game" is getting expensive.
