Best Place To Download Planes For Flight Sim.

Wed Apr 17, 2002 7:38 pm

Does anyone here know of a good site to download planes for FS 2002?

I'm looking for some turboprops especially, but also some BA aircraft.

Can anyone help?

http://www.avsim.com is my number one.

http://www.fsfreeware.com is pretty good too.

Lots more besides, but generally most have the same files uploaded.

Since FlightSim.com turned to crap, I've pretty much resorted to http://www.simviation.com. If you're looking for turbo props, they have a section just on them.

http://www.avsim.com Best place to download stuff! Wide variety of FS stuff. Not only MFS, but others as well!

http://www.simviation.com/menu Nice place, but with no good search feature. Has some nice tutorials.

http://www.fsfreeware.com Great place also. But limited stuff.

http://www.flightsim.com If you can even get logged in, theres a huge variety of stuff. I think it has a ton of BA aircraft, but use of it is limited because it so hard to get logged-in.

http://www.avsim.com/posky THE best place if you love heavies, like me. High Quality airplanes: 747, 767 (New GMAX!), 777, A330 (New GMAX!) and with 737, 757, and A340 coming soon.

http://www.avsim.com/csi Another good place, offering the MD-11 and the 717.

http://www.avsim.com/projectairbus They currently only offer the A300-600 with four liveries, several Russian aircraft, and a POSKY 767 painted in special Gulf Air colors, but their superb A320 (from screenshots) are coming quite soon! (Heard that more than 80 liveries have already been painted)

http://www.avsim.com/hjg Historic Jetliners Group, offering old aircraft such as the 707 and the 727.

http://www.avsim.com/ffg Great site to download L-1011, DC-10, KC-10, and 757!

http://pages.infinit.net/camsim/ A great site with the A330, A340, 777, and A380! It's A380 version 2 is quite nice, with a wingview. But aircraft quality is lower than other sites.

PAYWARE:

Phoenix Simulations Software (PSS) A320 http://www.phoenix-simulations.co.uk

Wilco's PIC 767 (Don't know website)

Dreamflight 737 (Don't know website)

Dreamfleet: http://www.dreamfleet2000.com
Wilco: http://www.wilcopub.com

Be carefull with Wilco. There are currently a lot of people who ordered on their site but haven't gotten their goods weeks or in some cases over a month later. Emails go unanswered or bounce, etc.

I can recommend The PSS Airbus and Dreamfleet 737 for short/medium haul jetliners.
Don't like Camsim jets, POSKY makes great heavies. CSi MD11 is a classic.
FFG DC-10 and MD-90 are the best.
http://www.flightsimnetwork.com/premaircraft for good CRJs and Twin Otters (their Dash 8 is disappointing, sadly).

Here's some more that haven't been mentioned...

http://www.surclaro.com - Good for airliners
http://www.fsjets.com - Purely corporate jets.

I love AVSIM - a lot of high quality airliners. I got a really sweet Delta Connection ERJ, FedEx A300, and FedEx Caravan there.

Also, simviation.com has a lot of files, and most of them are very good. Great prop section.

If you can't get into Flightsim the first time try again and again. I can always get in I don't know what these guys are complaining about becuase if u try it shouldn't take longer then 5 mins to get in. By having limits to who gets in it decreases download time.

Dash8, I've had so much trouble getting into fs.com in the recent past I don't even bother trying anymore.
And if you do get in, 50% of the time you're kicked out again when you click a download link or else the download is slow, very slow.

Other sites offer exactly the same, are faster and friendlier.

Another site to stay away from is fsplanet.com. Something like four pop-ups every time you load a page. Plus, pages load SLOW, download is SLOW, and the search feature SUCKS.

As for Flightsim, I find the search feature quite comparable with avsim. Pages and Downloads are quite fast.
