Frewware A/C: List Of The Best Regionals

Fri Aug 25, 2006 2:52 am

I already have all the mainline freeware packages POSKY and IFDG. I now need regional reccomendations. I do have some payware but it's all Abacus and they are naff IMHO.

They've made the EMB-170 as well as the erj-135/140/145/145xr/and the Legacy. They've also done the Dash 8-100/200 and the 400. Great planes, excellent forums.

I agree. The POSKY products are amazing and the ifdg aircraft are superb. Love the CLS ones too but they are payware... had to fork over the cash!

Any other suggestions for a good CRJ out there? POSKY's model looks great, but it can be tricky to fly sometimes, more so on landing.
C'mon Big B, FLY!

As others have said, Dreamwings has excellent models.

Mike Stone's Hangar - www.pmstone.com - also has a number of regional models. His models are catered to users who don't have high-end systems, so they're not incredibly detailed or have fine-tuned FDEs ... but they fly well, look good, and most still have their own panels.

Among others he has a Saab 340, 328JET, Shorts 360, and many others too.
I'd take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day.

The EMB-120 by project erj is excellent, and I just discovered http://htaimodels.com with some great beechcraft and cessna models. Most are freeware, but their latest release is payware (albeit only $15) for the Cessna single engine range. The King Airs, 1900, 99, Twin Otter and Islander are great aircraft to fly and fairly easy to land. Also, the free version of the Cessna Cardinal is excellent. Some of the models (especially the Shorts 330 and 360 need help, but the rest are pretty good. Just keep in mind these are meant to be ai aircraft.
