Well, I've grabbed two of them. I have my eye on the 350i for after payday, hopefully the deal will still be on... :smile:

Thanks for the original heads-up, by the way.

They usually have a full sale on their site from sometime in early December for about 10 days.  I have my eye on at least one.

Last year the sale started on the 7th.  Well, since it is the 7th in AUS right now it makes sense that Flight Sim Store would be first to offer the sale.

I bet all the other sites start offering the Carenado sale as their business day enters the 7th.  Tomorrow should be a good day.

Yep, me too! A little disappointed on that point, and it doesn't support the GTN 750, but for the price asked im going to take it, dam i love that plane!

It'd be great to have a really good one, fully decked.  The 208 flies in all the interesting places.  A husky, heavy-duty, plane.  Caribbean, Alaska, Hawaii...hauling people and cargo.

True! Such an important plane in GA all over the world deserved more love in simulation, maybe one day ;)

Also, the Malibu Mirage at $13.95 is a really, really good deal.  High-flyer, great views.  The synchro-soft soundset for it really gives it punch.

Any recommendations from people on a business jet? Would like navigation, etc, as I’m a wide body kinda guy (be kind 😃).

Hi Jason,

I think you would want the S550 as that's the only one with a full 3D model of the F1 GTN for navigation... I'll hit you with my standard disclaimer - Carenado's navigation equipment (Glass Panels, GPS, FMC) is incapable of performing even the most basic navigation functions such as a "Direct To" which is probably one of the most widely used real world ATC instructions issued... So - even if you pay extra for one of their fancy FMC's including Navigraph updates - this restriction still applies... Now the "mod squad" has worked hard to improve these glass panels by inserting the F1 GTN into a portion of the glass panel as a kludge to allow for real world navigation - they do excellent work given the restrictions they are shackled with - but most recently Carenado chose to add the stand alone GTN themselves which buys your the full 3D GTN model in the VC... Since the S550 is not a glass panel - this implementation is the one I prefer... Your mileage may vary... 

If you just fly canned routes from A to B without deviation - the aforementioned issues shouldn't affect you - if you fly with improved ATC - then the issue will affect you - all depends on how you fly...

Regards,
Scott

Currently the S550 is the best out of the box as long as you have the GTN750.  The Phenom 300, CJ2, and H850XP are good with Mr. Pieke's mods (again with the GTN750).

For any X-planers, my understanding is that Carenado will be redoing all of their XP-10 models for full XP-11 compatibility as new models with no discount to XP-10 purchasers.
Only the 500S and PA34V will get free updates. They made a facebook post about it

Most of the XP10 models mostly work...but perhaps best to save the budget for the updated versions...

Cheers
Keith

Thanks Scott, Greg, very useful info. Most of my flying pre-planned short-leg stuff with the 737 and or A3??. I don't have the GTN750 unfortunately and it's not an insignificant investment. I'm waiting on Aerosoft to update the A319/320, etc for P3Dv4 and this was going to be nice to tie me over, but perhaps I should just be more patient and hold off.

Nothing here for me. I was looking for the DO-228, but again - it's not on sale this time. :sad:
