This sort of another sappy "What's your favorite add-on aircraft question."
But, when most people answer the question they name 3 or 4 of their favorite
aircraft and the different situations they like to use them.

I suspect this question is much harder to answer:

If I came over to your house, sat down at your computer and told you I was
going to uninstall/delete every aircraft you have on your hard disk except
one, which one would you keep?

Eek! You're an evil Varmit for even asking such an unfair question!
:-)

However, if I were to play along with the question as asked, I'd have
to say that I'd want to keep my RealAir Scout, which offers both
amphibian and taildragger landing gear options.

This fine plane perfect for flying in quasi-Quilling VFR simulated
bush pilot mode, as it offers a great view from the virtual cockpit.
Even if I want to get fancy and use VOR and/or GPS navigation aids,
these are available. The VC is completely "clickable", and when
there's a good VC like this, I'll never bother with the 2D panel. I
also like the tandem seating arrangement and center stick controller.

The Scout isn't the fastest plane, but I'm a "low and slow"
sightseeing simulated bush flyer at heart, so it's perfect for me.

That said, if you ever try to take away my Super Decathlon, SF.260,
Piper Archer II, Cessna 152, Piper Meridian, Cessna 421, Spitfire, or
Cessna 177, you may come up against a bit of resistance as well! :-)

Tough choice indeed. It's either the RealAir SF.260 or the LDS 763. I
guess if you really only let me keep one it would have to be the SF.260.

Dallas,
I like to fly low & slow, so for me it's my APM-20 Lionceau (Lion Cub).
An excellant VFR aircraft.

That's an easy one.. it's the Boeing 727..!! have spent years digging
into the FD and now the engine power and climb / descent performance
are getting awfully close.. and one can `feel' the differences such as
in amount of throttle while descending. Here's a recent test sheet
with engine cruise data compared to references.

and there's some new fixes in store -- where confidence is high.. :) 
for nearly exact duplication or RW. Now which variant was that?

Without being long-winded for a change, I would say my Simmer'sSky MD-11,
which is the only add-on a/c I have. I really enjoy the default Boeings so
if you put your clammy palms on those, I'd turn the Mounties on ya. : )

I should have also added that the Scout is perfect for getting in and
out of small airstrips surrounded by obstacles (trees and terrain)
and also small bodies of water. These are of concern for both
simulated and real bush pilots! :-)

First of all, you would be at my computer for a very long time. I have
almost more than 100 a/c. Probably closer to 150.

Low and slow, actually too slow for me but if I could pick up the power a
little I wouldn't mind. The Dash 7 with all of the cockpit active. The
overhead is probably the best part of this baby. Short runways, nah not a
problemo. If you like fighting with the short take offs this baby is a
great bush plane. Only thing is there is not an amphibious version.

Dash 7 by Milton Schupe also waiting for the new addition which should have
been available by now.

Ok, Ok.... Ray Charles could have seen that coming.


My Ray Charles story:

I went to see him at a small venue in Dallas in the late 70's. I was
pissed that I got a front row, but end seat. They lowered the lights and a
spotlight turned on me. The crowd began to applaud and out of the hallway
in front of me came Ray Charles and his seeing eye man. He took two steps
and stumbled into my lap, spilled my drink and was laying across my knees
like a baby. I was speechless.

Ray gathered himself up and apologized profusely. I told him I would never
wash my lap again.

Later they brought me a new drink. If people ask me if I've ever seen Ray
Charles I say, "Hell yes, he bought a drink."

Default C172. Not very trendy, but it's the one I most enjoy flying. I
did a Trial Introductory Flight in one at a local flying school (never
went further due to cost of PPL), so that may influence my choice,
although for Quilling™ around, it suits me very well.

If you haven't tried it already, I recommend the RealAir version of
the C172. It comes as a "kit" for you to manually create a new C172,
using as a base some of the default C172 files. Flight dynamics,
graphics, and sounds are all enhanced with this version. It's free,
and you can find it here:

http://www.realairsimulations.com/

Go to the "products" page, and scroll down to the "Kangan Batman TAFE
Cessna 172".

Flight1 offers a payware C172. Varmit was kind enough to send me his
own mini-review of this plane, and it was a mixed review. He
mentioned some issues he had with panel size and visibility, but he
still likes the plane. Since I already have so many nice add-on
planes, after reading Varmit's review, I've decided to not purchase
the Flight1 plane at this time. I am, however, happy to have the
RealAir C172, which I do prefer over the default C172 (and you can't
beat the price!). :-)

It's hard to believe that thing can actually fly with those stubby wings.
:-)

In the movie Endless Summer II they ran one of those up on the beach at a
high speed and broke the wing spar. It was tragic to watch.

There was no explanation, but I'd bet they were "hot dogging" for the camera
and the pilot screwed up big time.

Wonder if the pilot was stomping on the toe brakes... ={8-0)))))

LOL...

I'll bet his sphincter could have pressed coal into diamonds... :-)

It was ugly, he had half the distance he needed to make it... he threw it
sideways in the water to slow it down, the right pontoon hit and bounced the
wing back to the left pontoon, then the left pontoon hit etc until he hit
the beach at 60 kts.

If I could figure out how to post a video I'd capture it and post it.

I'd pick the Alphasim F-111 because I'm Australian and well over here for me
the F-111 is like the main image for the RAAF. Plus it's great to fly with
RAAF liveries.

ooh.. you mean the F111 flying computer?? swept wing.. with terrain
following RADAR? speaking of which.. has any Sim included the terrain
avoidance RADAR? could it be made as a gauge? a form of autopilot?

The C4-SST for FS2002 by Nick Pike had a terrain following system,though if
the plane went too fast,it couldn't keep up and instead of crashing,it used
to put the sim into slew and move your plane up out of harms way. I guess
there must have been some issues with FS9 as I cant find the gauge on the
FS2004 version (but this still one cool plane)

A couple people mentioned the RealAir SF.260. I've never heard anything
but good about this, but here's a question: what's their refund policy?
My concern is not with the quality of the plane but whether it will run
decently on my less-than-top-of-the-line hardware.

Though performance depends on many things besides just the planes
(add-on sceneries especially), you might want to write to Rob and/or
Sean and ask about both your fs9 performance and possible refund
concerns. I've written to them in the past with other types of
questions, and they were both very helpful with their replies.

The SF.260 is a fine plane, and I even enjoyed it on my pre-upgraded
machine. Of course, I enjoy it even more now, after the performance
enhancing upgrades (the recent SF.260 update is nice as well).

Hi Dallas,

Well, mate, that adds at least two new perspectives to "being blind".

I haven't yet SEEN his reference to the incident in his Autobiography,
and I fail to SEE why you wouldn't have shouted him a drink back, and strike
me pink, what happened after you and Ray started swapping stories, after he
shouted you that first drink????

Regards,
John Ward
