What Plane/ Addon Do You Think Is Best Ever Made For Home Flight Simulaton ?

Recommended Posts

I just thought Id see what everyone thinks.

 

My Personal Opinion is the PMDG 737 NGX For Aircraft  And  ORBX for Scenery

RealAir Legacy, gorgeous and well made, but oh those flight dynamics...  I've done an awful lot of real-world spins/stalls whilst instructing, this is the first (and so far only, and I've got a few A2A GA) add on that could get from spin departure, through a couple of turns and through a recovery without exposing any obvious "sim-isms".  To manage that within the constraints of FSX is nothing short of a miracle.

 

Honorable nod to FSIPanel and PilotEdge for being an awesome training aids, they've probably made the biggest difference to my level of ability of any add on/service.

Even though I've got so many wonderful aircraft and scenery, I cant imagine using my sim without FSUIPC, therefor +1 for FSUIPC

Agree.  I've also done many real world spins.

FSUIPC + PMDG MD-11 + FSGRW or ASN

FSUIPC for add-ons. As for aircraft, the Majestic Dash 8 Q400 is my favorite. Just got it. I'm sorry PMDG NGX, but it is time for us... to part

Plane = PMDG NGX. 
Addon in general = FSUIPC.

Although the PMDG NGX is awesome, the Level D 767 has stood the test of time.  Concerning the addon, I can't imagine flying a flight without Multi Crew Experience (MCE).  

 

Aircraft = Level D 767

General = MCE

What I've seem in the last 12+ years that's stood the test of time:

 

Leonardo Maddog

iFly 737

PMDB 744

Level-D 767

Feelthere's Regional Jet series (E-Jets, ERJ, etc).

Thats a tough one, there have been so many.  Maybe the greatest FS development for me is Accusim.   For all the real life flight training I've had, Accusim makes me rely on that training and learned instincts more than anything.  If you think of all the 'stuff' that a real pilot has to do and know for a successful flight, accusim covers as much that is possible within FS so far.  

 

If you look at the operational technique and mechanical/systems discussions on the A2A forums, they resemble the real world operational technique and mechanical/systems discussions found on real aviation forums...ie AOPA....that says something about what Accusim does.

 

I would have to say my over all favorite airplane is the A2A P-40.  It is a fast, powerful taildragger that requires seat of the pants flying, while also rugged enough to get into some semi bush airstrips, with system depth to keep me busy, yet not so much that I can't enjoy the Orbx scenery.  The P-40 lets my enjoy my inner 'Capt. Wild Bill Kelso' 

 

However all the different airplanes are different kinds of tools for different kinds of jobs.

 

For GA, I would have to go with the A2A Cherokee.  The Comanche is absolutely fantastic, but there is something about the little mundane Cherokee that really draws me to it for those short hops, local sight seeing, practice IFR approaches..etc.  The Cherokee's VC is one of the best in the business IMHO, a real work of art.

 

For magenta line long distance flying, the Turbine Duke with GTN is tough to beat, tho if/when the A2A Civil P-51 gets a GTN650 upgrade, the T Duke will get some competition.   PT6s are nice, but nothing beats the sound of a Packard Merlin V-12....except perhaps the Allison V1710.  B)

That is the combination that got me back into FSX and loving every minute of flying the Duke.

 

Little movie I made showing off all three!   https://youtu.be/Ka_YyQkrKFo

Airsimmer A320? Only kidding.

 

REX, I'd say for changing the look of the sim. Aircraft wise the LDS 767 was a real game changer.

I'd agree with that, but qualify it and say just the RealAir Turbine Duke.

Can I say the set of Ray Smith's free airport scenery? IDK what my flying experience would be like without them. Outdated ILS frequencies. Missing runways. Updated terminals and taxiways. No more because of Ray!
