Best small business jet class a/c for FSX

Recommended Posts

Hi,Today I have two a/c in my FSX hangar, the Level-D 767 for longhaul flights and Digital Aviation's Piper Cheyenne for short trips but now I would also like to find a third good a/c that would fit in between these two like a small business yet or similar with the same kind of realistic and high-quality touch as you get with the other a/c I already have.Any good suggestions guys...?

Eaglesoft makes very nice buzjets.I own their Citation II (albeit the FS9 version) and I'm very pleased with it.

Thanks for the tips guys!I went over to eaglesoft and their a/c sure looks nice! I really liked the Citation X but noticed that is still not available for FSX...wonder if it would be worth to wait for...?Also checked the Beechjet 400A out that is already available for FSX, anyone with any comments/experience with that a/c compared to the Citation II for example - pro's and con's?TIA,

What do you want it for? The C-X is more something for very long trips, the kind your 767 is also good for (though the C-X is a bit faster).The C-II is another way of flying entirely. No computers to do it all for you, steam and brainpower all the way.It's like comparing a 1980 BMW 520 with a 2005 BMW 530.The 530 is more modern, faster, but lacks (IMO) what makes a BMW a BMW, that character.

No computers to do>it all for you, steam and brainpower all the way.Guess I kind of like to have an a/c that holds the latest technology with a more automated flight but still realistic in the way where you need to learn the different automated systems like programming the FMC etc so maybe I should wait for the C-X if these kind of systems are not in a C-II and as far as I can tell they don't seem to be in the Beechjet 400A either...at least not modelled in the Beechjet from eaglesoft?

The CJ1 may fit your needs. The CJ1 Expansion Pack is nearing Beta Test which will turn the base CJ1 into a CJ1+ and include FMS along with many other features that we cannot discuss at this time.Not a sales pitch, just information on expanding the capabilities:-)

Man Mcrash you are a slave driver :-lol Considering we've spent over a year rebuilding and building FSX aircraft, and have quite a few in the pipeline as we speak, we would have to say that we do have FSX aircraft as a priority along with certain FS9 projects.We're peddaling as fast as we can...we promise :-lol
