The best freeware aircraft that I have is the AFG Pilatus PC-12. 😀 😀

For reasons I can't fully explain, the Tupolev TU-334 has turned into my favorite. I don't usually like commerical jets, but this one is so damned pleasant. 😀

BTW, everything I've added is freeware.

Tu144...that's the Supersonic one right?

I tried it. But man, you cant see squat with the visor up. I mean, I guess there's not a lot to see at FL530, but still 😛.

Freeware scenery: LaGuardia (don't know who made it, but t here's only one upgrade)

Payware scenery: Even though I don't fly there often, the FlyTampa SFO airport. Way better than my simflyers stuff.

Freeware aircraft: Maule 6-pack

Payware aircraft: Do I have to pick just one? Well, another one I don't fly as often but think deserves a good rating is the ERJ-145 by feelthere.

Freeware utility: FSAutoStart

Payware utility: FSBuild!

In response to Michael_H's question about the 800/900 series, it enhances the plane as a whole. I pretty much never fly the 900 series, and almost never fly the 800 series, but even the basic 600/700 models got just a little sweeter. They upgraded the panels with a more realistic look (which previously i was against, but now I REALLY appreciate), they added a working TCAS system (very handy), a few different display options for the gauges, and I think a few other things. There's nothing so major that you'll go "wow, that was an upgrade," but you'll certainly be very glad if you upgraded it, especially since you've probably been flying the original for a while.

The PMDG 737 and the F1 Cessna skyhawk 172R. Once the PMDG 747 comes out it will definantly be the best EVER.
