I'd try a small business jet next like a Citation, Learjet or Dassault Falcon:

Citation (its payware):

Dassault Falcon ( its freeware):

Filename over at www.avsim.com : fc7x-moz.zip

Both are of very high quality and are easy to fly for beginners 😉

im looking more for a turboprop maybe like a Beech 1900D... even better if the airline is based, flie within or flies to california. i might try a EMB120...

Rather than go straight to a turbine engine aircraft I would suggest something like the default Mooney Bravo or the Dreamfleet Bonanza A36. Both introduce some of the attributes of complex aircraft like landing gear, constant speed propellers, cowl flaps, air brakes for the Mooney, and engine power management using EGT and manifold pressure. Both are much faster and also have nice IFR cabable nav suites. In the case of the A36 it has an extremely capable instrument set. Read the manuals and fly these planes like they are supposed to be flown. When controlling all the components of the single engine complex aircraft is second nature, move on to the Baron 58 and start learning about twin engine flying. Then I would move into turbine aircraft with maybe the King Air. If you do become a commercial pilot this is likely how your actual training will progress.

Yes, it was like $26.95 and I think worth it. Take a look:
