You should definitely have a look at Hauke Keitel's freeware Piper Arrow III. It's available on the FlightSim library as pa28r201.zip. While the VC is very good for a freeware aircraft, the packaged 2D view isn't so great. There are however a few good replacements that have since been made available on the FlightSim site as well (see fppa28bl.zip or fppa28ei.zip). I think it is one of the best freeware GA aircraft that has been made for FSX at present.Hope you like it.David

Thank you very much...I never flew the Cheyenne, but it IS certainly a great ship. Just as a side... has anyone ever seen freeware or payware on the little Piper trainer, Tomahawk?Take care, Steve

Hi Steve,Bill Lyon's outstanding Tri-Pacers work well in FSX, although some of the external textures do not display properly. I'm sure there is a fix, but have not had time to delve into it.Search for cc13p22f.zip in the avsim library.John

Thanks so much, guys. I'm surprised anyone took time with the Tomahawk. Just found out my wife and I are rushing off to Oshkosh for the fly-in. I will try these out when I get back.Take care all, and God bless!Steve
