Aircraft for Acceleration Carrier

Recommended Posts

Are there any good freeware aircraft out there that work on FSX's Acceleration Package carriers? The F-18 that it comes with is fun but there must be some good freeware aircraft out there too.Thanks,Brandon

Thanks for the replies.I realize that the Acceleration carriers have a schedule. Like the one based at KNZY sails up to San Francisco Bay on Wednesdays. Is there any way to know where a carrier is when it is en-route? Or do you just have to fly between its' departure port and arrival port to find it?Thanks,Brandon
