Both of those are top notch.The largest seller and who carries just about anything is Simmarket.Just be aware that they sell ANYTHING.That means read the reviews,do a search and find out what you can before you buy as they do not have a return policy.But its a great place to find alot of addons nobody carries and all in one place.Or be more specific in what you are looking for and people will offer their suggestions.

Thanks. I only want to look at GA planes to see what I might want to buy. Not interested in the heavies. Don

I'm a GA flyer myself Don.I highly recommend the Eaglesoft Twin Comanche and Columbia, the Dreamfleet Dakota, the Aerosoft Beaver or Twin Otter, and the Carenado Mooney.The Comanche, Dakota, and Mooney are three of my favorites.

A beautiful aircraft with great frame rates (true FSX model), but one that has so many bugs (especially with the Trimble) I've stuffed it in the hanger indefinitely.Sorry to say.But....many folks do like it...perhaps they don't use the Trimble to it's fullest as I like to. And even after I yanked it, and replaced it, I still had an FS crash with it after a two hour flight. That was enough for me.

I've actually put the Default GPS in my Cheyenne, but I'm not a "by the numbers" virtual pilot either, I just enjoy beautiful renditions of Aircraft, and that Cheyenne is definately that. It has, in my opinion, the nicest Virtual Cockpit out at the moment, and the night lighting is to die for. If you're looking for a good GA aircraft, the Real Air SF260, the Eaglesoft Twin Commanche, the Aerosoft Beaver, and the Digital Aviation Piper Cheyenne are my choices. I don't have the Dreamfleet Dakota, but all I've read on it has been very positive.

I was going to buy the mooney and tried several times, but each time I get to click on proceed to checkout it ends and that's it, so I guess that is out. Don

I got the mooney now. How can I get rid of that microsoft security warning. I check yes to accept it and load and it just keeps popping back in my face. Mighty aggravating!!!!! Don

Have no idea what you might be speaking of Don. Are you using Vista?

No I use xp. This security warning has been coming up ever since I bought my first plane. It asks me if I want to trust this software and load every time. I check yes and it just pops right back up agsin over and over. I have never seen it before and I have d/l'd stuff, but this time it is relentless. It is a pain in the a@#$$.Don

I know what you mean but this one does not have that feature. It says click yes if you want to load this software every time the sim is brought up, or, click cancel to load this one time only. I clicked yes and it bounces right back with the same thing. It will go away eventually after about 6 clicks but in th meantime I want to smash my monitor!!!!!! Kind of makes me sorry I bought the a/cAlso, in the original description, it stated there are chocks for the wheels. I have reaad the manual and can find no mention of chocks.The link won't let me contact carenado SO THAT IS ANOTHER THING!!!!!! They want your money and then won't let you contact them with a question. Pretty poor business conduct. Don
