https://ibb.co/jvyvwcIf you want a bizjet get the Xtreme Prototypes LJ35.  Awesome detailed cockpit, great systems, 200 page manual plus great support.

The Xtreme Prototypes Lear Jet is a Model 25. However, as mentioned previously, it is a great addon all the way around--model, textures etc.

Another bizjet to consider is the Flysimware Lear Jet 35A. The textures are not up to Carenado standards, however it is a great addon if you're looking for a bizjet with a longer range than the Model 25 LJ. I have both of these aircraft and enjoy them. Hope this helps!

Rtodepart,

Have a look at the Eaglesoft Citation and also the beenfeltupthere, (aka Feelthere) Embraer line up. I have them for FS9 but do not know if they have been upgraded in their P3Dv4 line up. If anyone can comment on this aspect, I for one would appreciate the feedback.

Cheers

The Eaglesoft is not P3DV4 compatible(I still enjoy it greatly in V3)! May be in a close or not so close future. I agree with the previous comment on the Xtreme Prototypes LJ25, it's a blast, however a little bit fps hungry! IMO much better than any Carenado jets.

Sorry yes it’s a 25. I mistyped. LJ25 is a little harsh on framerate but I believe that’s the cost of the beautiful detailed VC. 

I also have the Flysimware but NEVER fly it now the graphics are poor quality compared to LJ25 although systems are, I believe, similar.

If you're on p3d3 then the Flight1 Mustang is a great small jet, the Eaglesoft Citation X is fantastic as midsize. The Mustang will hopefully be available soon on p3d4, Eaglesoft are also bringing out multiple business jets on both platforms (Citation XLS in beta for 32bit at the moment).

The XP Lear 25 is also great and on both platforms if you like older jets, and Milviz are working on a 60XR at the moment.

Some of the Carenado stuff is pretty, but avionics are poor compared to everything else above...

Adding a F1 GTN 750 to your Phenom 300 will totally transform the airplane (for the better).. my favorite small jet in P3DV4.

If you have not done so, please seriously consider adding this mod to your Phenom 300 (if you have F1's GTN 750)--send Bert a "PM" and he can send you that mod. 

Two other biz jets from Carenado to consider are: The Cessna 525 A Citation CJ2 with the GTN 750 mod available for it and the Cessna S 550 Citation II (Carenado's updated version includes the GTN 750 option). I believe all three of these Carenado options are "single pilot" biz jets.

Flysimware has been working on a Falcon 50 for some time now, really like their Learjet 35 as mentioned and their MU-2, just wish they could up their game a bit on the visuals....Probably end up buying both!

My fav is the GLJ Model 25 Special Edition from Xtreme prototype, it's a jewel and their customer service is excellent.

This said, I like also the S550 Citation II from Caranedo

Both are working well with the v. 4.3

Don't forget F1's Mustang. Lovely small jet with great systems and great stuttering to go with it unfortunately.

Hi Folks,

My first choice would be the Flysimware Lear 35A - just can't get enough of it and it includes full 3D models for F1/RXP GTN implementation as well as the REX Wx Radar... It's a very capable aircraft... One of my all time favorites - same shelf as my old DA Cheyenne... You usually can pick it up on sale for around $20.00 and that makes it an absolute steal - I honestly feel guilty for buying it at that price considering the enjoyment it has brought me... I'll be buying the Flysimware Falcon 50 at full price when released...

Second choice would be the Carenado 525 CJ2 with "Novej757" labor of love "mod" incorporating the GTN... It's turned a marginal aircraft into a very realistic and enjoyable model... Jevon - OUSTANDING effort - sir... I have the 550 Citation as well and it just sits gathering dust... The 525 is a hoot...

Scott

My fps are acceptable and stutters are not an issue on my system. But fps do hover in the low 20s in large cities and payware airports.

I get stutters because i have frames locked at 60 which works for everything but the Mustang. Even FSL319/320 loves it. 20fps is unacceptable to me.

I looked at the FSW Falcon - the visuals need major work.  I know that from a systems standpoint it will smoke the Carenado but the C modeling will smoke FSW's

Maybe I'll do a combo

Good find. But I think its the old 25 ?

Looks awesome, takes the GTN 750 and is pretty darn good on FPS due to the steam gauges. Very nice.

Never thought I'd be purchasing a bizjet this weekend, but I'm close ... especially at just 40 bucks U.S. 

Just gonna check out the downloadable manual and watch a few tube vids, and may well be collecting the keys by teatime !
