Okay so I want some payware aircraft. Now I am only class 1 (and until I start landing more often and making sure I put up my wheels and adjust speed so I do not run out of fuel duoght) I will be here for a bit and two aircraft I have really started to love are the b 1900d and the dash 8 q 300 now I couldnt get the 400 to work so not sure if it is better . But basically these have the feel and the look of the bigger guys so I am looking for the best payware addition to these aircraft. and also looking for the best ontario scenery payware or not. I just got some of the orbx for around seattle northwest region but they do not cover ontario thanks I just do not want to waste a bunch of money on crap thanks

Well for Aircraft I just purchased the "B200 KING AIR HD" (FSX) from Carenado, and I'm very impressed. Great plane for a CVA Class 1, and not a big learning curve
PMDG has the "B1900D" (FSX) and the "Jetstream 41" I dont have either but I have 4 other PMDG planes for FSX and they are exceptional..... :P
Class 3 the PMDG 737NGX (FSX) and the iFly 737 (FSX) are great also. (I have both... not sure why...... :roll: )

As for scenery I'm from BC so I have most of the ORBX scenerys, so as for the eastern Canada scenery what do you care......
as long as it's flat, green in the summer, white in the winter...... :lol:

Good fuel planner http://fuel.aerotexas.com

Gear up and down...... maybe a Checklist :lol:

First off oh Wow! and second of I am orginaly for washington state so yeah I know what you mean. But I fly in ontario and a lot in quebec so looking for good scenery there. I will have to 200 king I like that one as well. With the fuel planer how do I adjust fuel does the fuel areo texas do it or do I have to do it manually. and just one more to make these new aircraft cva aircraft do I just copy paste the cva texture file to the new planes folder or is there more than that

Mike,

Be sure your pc's specs can meet power hungry and memory resource intensive payware add on planes and sceneries.

I tried it and failed miserably :( that's why I'm betting my money on you pulling it off. I really do want the twotter in CVA colours.

Mike,

So how many here said holy crap when they bought there first payware plane cause that is what I am saying and I used to work on electrical and avoinics on helicopters so I can only imagine someone who has never fixed or flown a aircraft. Well looks like I will be catching up on some reading this weekend like how a dash 8 q300 really operates. WoW

Well Im no authority on Quebec freeware scenery as I am the CVA Arctic Vampire and rarely venture south to the warm lands of Lower Provencal Canada, unless im passing thru on a smuggling run to Cuba for Vancouver Hub :shock: :mrgreen:

But for Quebec Freeware this group does some excellent work

PMDG is the best right? is that what you mean by get a good one or does it have different levels like pilot pro and training cause that is how the majestic dash 8 300 did it I just got the pilot edition the other editions were pricey as I am sure the md11 will be as well. But I will check it out. never too soon to start learning especially if its going to take me two years hahaha.

Okay couldnt help it hopefully pmdg is the best cause I just got the md11 I feel like a little kid just opened a xmas present. How do I make it so that the aircraft starts up with all power off my majestic dash 8 automatically does it but my md11 starts full on.
