For me, finding aircraft that are FPS friendly has been hit-and-miss. I find that it helps to delete (so to speak) the mitmaps. I enjoy the Project Open Sky Boeings. The MELJETS are about the same and have great features. I also found that any aircraft that is photoreal is a killer for me!

I recently read a post here about how sound hits the frame rates. I experimented and found that addon sounds hit hard, whereas the default sound packages are fine. The next time your in a mission/flight, turn off the sound (Q) and watch your FPS.

Any Kittyhawk aircraft with Eric Cantu associated are excellent quality and relatively small in size(to download) also the SGA range!

Dont get me wrong the POSKY stuff is great but for those who havent, I recpmend the 'iFly 747-400'

For free I find this AC outstanding!

It has a 90% functional cockpit and a working FMC!!
The flight model is not great but there is a big differance betwen the price of Ifly and PMDG 🙂

If you are thinking of getting somthing like the PMDG 747-400 try the Ifly 747-400.

1)Ifly 747-400
2)POSKY 747
3)POSKY 767
4)POSKY 757
5)POSKY 737
