Ariane 737

Thu Feb 02, 2006 10:09 pm

Hello All,

I have been looking at the Ariane 737 /300/400 but i cannot see any pictures of the analogue cockpit as to see what its like , after the Dreamfleet 737-400 cockpit in FS 2002 which i have always thought was a great cockpit i have not found one to match it , i was wondering if the Ariane cockpit is anywere near it ,

Any help would be appreciated , cheers Roger.

You should look at the WILCO 737, the panel is superb. ( www.wilcopub.com )

Hi Gofly,

Thanks for that ,the Ariane panel looks good going by that picture and yes i have also looked at Wilco,s site , i really do wish though that we could get a panel like we had from Dreamfleet for the 737 but thats only my opinion .

Cheers Roger.

I don't have the Dreamfleet 737, however by looking at a pic ( http://virtual.planepictures.net/show.cgi?108611 ) the WILCO panel is the closest. It is also ahead in terms of functionality.

Here a some of my shots of the WILCO 737: (2D panel + VC)

I think you will find it better than the Dreamfleet! Big grin

Just to throw another into the equation, the PMDG 737 NG is one of/the best payware models out there: http://www.precisionmanuals.com/

Any other questions, just ask!  Smile

The Ariane 737-300/400 series are older products. If you want the latest get the -800/900 or the BBJ.

I made the mistake of buying the BBJ from them and I regret it everytime i see it in my aircraft list. There support is terrible, there anti pirate unlock is junk so you hae to wait for them to email you yet another code. After about a week of back and forth emails I got the plane running but half my instruments still don't work someday ill take another crack at it.

Stop plugging your VA into your signature.

Well, I got the BBJ and it's a favourite when I have time to go through the procedures to get her started (which isn't often).

Support I got was excellent. Sure it takes a while because of timezones and office hours (which happen to coincide between them and me so there's a delay every time) but they got me up and running with a few emails back and forth.
I can only say to RTFM if you can't get all the displays to light up. I had the same and I'd forgotten parts of the startup procedure of the aircraft.
