Fri Aug 13, 2004 11:34 pm

Any good 717 for FS2004? I've been scouring all over avsim and Flightsim with no luck.

If you wait patiently, there is a 717 in the works by the good people at SGA.

If you can't wait for the SGA 717 and if you are willing to spend $29, you can download the 717 from the Vans Aircraft Co:

DOWNLOAD THE VANS 717! The $29 is well worth it. It comes with every livery there is for the 717, and the ground service trucks effect is fantastic. The visual model is perfect, but the fde could use some adjustments. Otherwise, that was the best $29 I ever spent on FS addons.

If you had no luck, then how come I found so many 717's on avsim that have virtual cabins, cockpits, etc. Go here=http://library.avsim.net/search.php?SearchTerm=717&CatID=root&Sort=Name&ScanMode=0&Page=1 I did your searching.

I'm sorry but the Nathan Tenney 717 is crap. It is not visually correct and is basically sub-standard even for freeware...

I used to use the Natha Tenney 717 when I had FS2002. It didn't appeal to me too much. It didn't even look like a 717. The Vans 717 is far more superior in the visuals department not to mention the virtual cockpit is one of best that I have ever seen IMHO. My favorite color scheme for the 717 is HA's colors and Vans has done an excellent job in those colors (as compared to the Tenney 717 and the POSKY 767s) as well as every other 717 color scheme. It is a great addon despite the price that you have to pay for. The Nathan Tenney 717 had some potential going if only it was updated and revised. Hopefully the SGA 717 will be just as good as the Vans one.

That's just one out of other 717's there. There's an AirTran one that I also have.
