View Full Version : Hats off to Project Fokker

LAST EDITED ON Dec-08-02 AT 03:15PM (EST)[p]These guys have produced on heck of an aircraft. The panel is superb, and the sound pack it great.
The aircraft flies like a dream and is one of the better handling freeware packages I have downloaded in a long time.
You can get the aircraft, panel, sound pack and a whole slew of liveriers at http://fokker.avsim.net

http://fokker.avsim.net might work a little better. :)

:-hmmm Not quite sure why that same url would work better...
Anyway, this thing rocks! It just looks awesome and sounds awesome. Unfortunately no VC, but I'll forgive that... :-)
And, the install just couldn't be any easier. All files come with an installer, so no way you could screw it up.
Love this one. Thumbs up!

And she installs nice to. To bad the FMC doesnt work.

I've got to say, it's probably one of the most complete and beautifully presented bits of freeware I've seen.
Just taken mine for a short spin on a BMI Baby route from EGFF to EGJJ (I've been on the real thing on this route recently) and it behaved perfectly, except I couldn't locate the TOGA switch when I came across the enevitable badly timed AI on runway at Jersey (perhaps I should RTFM first)!!
It even shows the pitch adjustment in the tail (like the Simubuild A340-600, but not as overdone).
Dix points, ProjectFokker!!

I agree. One of the best Gmax aircraft I have ever flown. Looks, handling, realism, moving parts - the package. Terrific job.
BTW, I never liked to fly these planes in real life (as a passenger) on AA. Its an especially bad sardine can (at least that's how AA configures the seating).

GMAX? Is that why i dont see taxi or landing lights on the ground while in or out of a/c?
oh and love the Captians side window open on E+2

Well the aircraft is quite dinky but the panel stays far behind of todays freeware standards. Compare it to the outstanding Espen Oijordsbakken's Fokker 50 panel or the excellent Falcon 50 or Stellan Hilmerby's DC-9 and you know what I mean.
TMHO even the standard FS2002 King Air panel is better...

I think the URL in post 1 was edited, while message 2 was posted.

The King Air panel is better? HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA....Stop it! You're killing me.

Do you really believe that Fokker jet aircrafts don't have taxi lights?
12-10-2002, 09:00 AM
Never said they didnt. I noticed that they cannot be seen from the cockpit, unless you raise the seat. But that doesnt take away from the aircraft itself.
This argument can go on and on, you dont like the "dinky aircraft and panel" I happen to like the aircraft.

Are you talking about the taxi lights or are you talking about the landing lights? Assuming we're talking about the taxi lights - tell me - how do you switch them on or off?

Hold it, hold it! I always said that I really like those new Fokker jets. Great work, really! They are very nice to look at also they're a bit too easy to fly compared to the real thing but: The panel has to be improved intensely! Ever tried the Fokker 50?

The model is almost perfect in my eyes. The flight characteristics I can't say. But the panel and sound didn't impress me at all. Except for the high wind noise sound coming up after around 100 knots. But I'm not gonna complain no more. It is freeware and I certainly respect Project Fokkers 70/100 series, it's a good start.

***Bump****.....is there gonna be a fix for the landing and taxi lights?
