Hey guys,

For a wile now i've been using the propellor aircraft (mostly the Cessna's) and I think now i would like to move in a jet but im not sure which jet is good.

Any suggestions on a jet that is easy to manovere and easy to land. I think this would be gd for me since in not really an experienced flyer yet

Thanks,

I would say either the Fokker 70/100, Boeing 737, Airbus A319, MD88. If you want a small jet, try the Learjet
Ask if you want downloads of them Wink

Hi Flightcheck

I moved onto the 737 as my first jet.

It takes a little handling after the Cessna, just be careful with the throttle.

Regards

George

an 148 from samdim designs - beautiful aircraft and not too easy to fly like the default 737 is.

i also like openskys crj 200

and the eclipse 500is a great jet to learn in.

A good transitional aircraft from Propellor to Jet is the Embraer "SuperTucano", currently in use by the RAF for just that purpose. It handles much like a small jet but operationally is much cheaper to operate. The RAF aircraft are now all at Linton-on-Ouse (Near York) and make it possible to simulate their training runs over the Penines to Cumbria, including low passes over the Lakes. Landing them is no big deal and they are a joy to handle.

Definately jolegg's suggestion Fokker 70/100. Handles nicely, easier than the default 737 or the Learjet or any of the Airbus family.
No bugs in the package either, you can fly them the easy way or later get more realistic by following the extensive PDF manual included in the download.
Either way you even get a few call-outs from the first officer Very Happy

I got it slightly wrong about this plane - the Supertucano is a militarised version run by the Brazilian Airforce, amongst others whilst the Tucano is the trainer used by the RAF. I have both and they are ok.
