Historic Airlines AI Traffic?

Thu Dec 21, 2006 4:37 am

Hey all. I have Ultimate Traffic and I am looking for historic airlines, ie Eastern, TWA, Braniff, Pan Am, but have been unable to find packages for them as of yet. I would love to be flying around the skies with those old airlines so I was wondering if anyone knew of any packages out there that would add them to fs2k4. Thanks for your help.

there was a site called RetroAI that offered flight plans for eras gone by. You can probably find some still posted on AVSIM/Flightsim.com/Etc... Packages, no, never as far as i know.

However, you can always fudge things and just use the older planes with the flightplans in UT, not that realistic i know but... it is an option.

My own flightplans and repaints for some of the airlines from the 80s can be found here: http://www.simlivery.com/AI/

What i gather is the RetroAI domain lapsed and the owner didnt renew it.

Anyways, yes ill be Adding Air Midwest (inc Ozark Midwest and Eastern Express) soon, and im currently working on the Piedmont Regional/Commuter system airlines, but that is the biggest project ive yet attempted.

I had an awesome Retro AI setup on my old (crappy) computer...I tried getting it up again on my new rig earlier this year, but lost the patience to put together new AI plans. The site went down not long after that. Some of the payware traffic programs offer "retro" options, but they all look terrible compared to what I had with my Retro AI plans/Aardvark models. Simming with skies full of DC-10s, 727s, 732s and DC-8s was pretty sweet.
Picked a hell of a week to quit sniffing glue.
