Jets in the game

Recommended Posts

Do we know if the 747-8 and the A320 will be the only jets in the game? At the moment they have been the only ones advertised. I have been looking around for this information. I would love to see a stock Embraer regional jet in this game.

I believe the Cessna Citation comes standard in the sim but it hasn't been previewed much if at all. I think I only saw it in one of the previews.

Game?  GAME!?  Saints preserve us!  You be unaware that referring to our beloved simulator as a "game" is a Cardinal Sin for 90% of better of users in the community!  Father Bill (@n4gix)?  He needs you!   LOL! Maybe you were referring to the Xbotched version?  Then I suppose using the term "game" is alright.

All in good fun @flightsimfan912!

Sorry, I must be getting old. I need common sense in my head.

Sim, not Game!

If you ain't simming, you ain't winning! 🙂

The Citation may have been published in some screen shot, but I have not seen them - however, the default aircraft in the alpha version of the sim at present only include those two jets.

Yes citation 4 will be default in the sim but hasn't be included in alpha as yet.

Isn't there a model of a 787 in the background (behind the narrator) in the newest episode (IFR)?

And I still hope for some military fighters. Boeing F 18 would be cool plus a good model of an aircraft carrier (Top Gun 2 is coming later this year 😉)!

yes FS historically has been more a civilian sim. We use to have Combat Flightsim to fill in the gap but nowadays DCS is more or less the sim of preference for the military taste...

Don't forget Falcom (BMS 4.34) which is mostly freeware (you have to spend $6.99 to get Falcon but all the updates are freeware) and it's getting a massive graphics update in the next year that will make it very competitive.

The problem I have with DCS (and I'm sure Matt Wagner, who I knew many, many years ago, isn't happy about) is that they pump out an addon and leave it unfinished. For instance,  the F/A-18C, which should have been the Super Hornet by the way, still doesn't have a Ground Radar after a few years of being released yet Eagle Dynamics puts time and effort into other addons to sell.  Seeing things in this light makes me understand why many people migrate over to Falcon.

Well, I guess if you are going to use an Xbox controller, it will be a game. The rest of us using Flight Sim Controllers will be Flight Simming.
