Log on the PSS's web site at http://www.phoenix-simulation.co.uk. The Panel costs £10, the Sound Set £5, and the various external liveries £5 each. I downloaded them a couple of days ago and they are worth every penny - the detail is increadible! Easily the best aircraft I've seen for FS2000 (add-on or otherwise!)

I am using a British Airways 777-236ER in "Waves of the City" World Tail scheme, and it is amazing for FS98. Real round engines, great interior views ect. The only drawback is the lack of a tail light. Does anybody else have this aircraft?

With the PSS 744, the framerates are extremely low.
Not to mention the poor textures on the PSS744.
I personally don't like their 744. Their 777 was good on framerates because they used a different production method. But the 744 fell short of many's expectations.
Its a nice plane...some love it incredibly, but some vow that they will never buy another PSS product.

The PSS777/747 are the absolute best out there. I don't have the 747, but I have seen the screenshots, and from what I have seen, I can tell it is great. I have the 777. Amazing. The 747 panel looks outrageously real. I wanna get it, but Im waiting for the boxed version to come out. I can't download it, my Internet connection is way to slow.

Mostly i use a 737-700 from MAERSK, i love the route from Kopenhagen to the Faroe Islands. But the only planes i can land perfect are smaller ones like ATR's or Dash-8. And here my fave is my ATR-42 from DANISH AIR TRANSPORT and my Dash-8-400 from SAS.
Anyone her who knows where i can find 767's from JAL or SAS with swedish or danish registration or SKYWAYS planes (the ones from Flightsim.com doesnt work).

I prefer an Boeing 737-200 from in this case (it's the only one i know) Sunair. The reason is that during the landing, you can correct you ILS approach by yourself. When the descent rate is set, you can turn of your a/p and fly by yourself, make corrections (it react almost directly), and land.
Also an DC8 and Boeing 757 (air holland, FFG plane i thought) with the correct panel are easy to land, which is a must!
A B747 is hard to land, but the Meljet.com 747 are beauties!

Has anybody tried the Super Caravelle made by Joel Branchu (at http://jojob.decollage.org/caravelle.htm)
I like to fly older aircrafts (as well as new ones) and Caravelle was the aircraft I took my first flight in in 1966. I have a few freeware Caravelle FS98 models but this FS2000 model is supposed to be absolutely great???
And I certainly would like to Go to Gabon where the last Caravelle is hauling people on scheduled routes (http://www.gabonexpress.com)

The 767 Pilot In Command is simply the best panel out there. PSS744/PSS777 panels won't come even close. You can't even compare them. PSS744 panel is a toy compared to the 767 PIC. Does PSS744 have all those IRU:s you need to align and other stuff...nope. I own both, well, I did own both. I deleted the PSS744 as soon as I got 767 PIC. The level of realism is so much higher in PIC. And this is what all the others say too. PSS744 is a toy compared to the 767 PIC.

Everyone has their own opinions. I personally am not a big fan of the 767 and so I didn't buy PIC. I don't think PSS's work should be considered toys though because I've heard that the PSS visual model is highly superior to the PIC visual model.
