Thread: Best FSX Freeware Aircraft

  1. #1

    Default Best FSX Freeware Aircraft

    Hey guys!

    What would you say is the best (most realistic) Freeware aircraft made for FSX? I personally enjoy the TDS 737-8 MAX however it does use the default 737-800 Cockpit. Likewise, Thomas Ruth does make some very high quality Airbus Aircraft.

    What notable addons are there for you guys? Cheers!

    I mostly fly in external spot view so that I can drool over how beautiful the planes look, so my top priority is good textures and I'm not too choosy about whether the cockpit and panel look good. But whatever your preference, simply download a freeware plane and if you don't like it, delete it and try another, I do it all the time..
    Below: my current FSX planes, nearly all are stock and freeware, and many are FS2004 machines which work fine in FSX -

    I'm liking the Dino Cattaneo aircraft! Milton Shupe also had a nice selection!

    If you're looking for a great F/A-18C, go to the FS Dream Team forums and DL the latest from "Jimi" Hendricks and his development team. According to the real-world (where ever that is!) Hornet drivers on their forums, and there are many, some of whom helped develop the plane, , both active and retired, it is THE most realistic plane, and FCS system, anywhere in the Sim universe, bar none. Payware, freeware, it's the very best.
    You want v16.1. It just keeps getting better with every release of a new version too.
    I can provide a link to the DL forum post should you desire.
    Jimi and his team were heavily involved in the development of the original FSX Acceleration's Hornet, and this latest version is a HUGE improvement over that!

    Had a thought...then there was the smell of something burning, and sparks, and then a big fire, and then the lights went out! I guess I better not do that again!

    I went to the forum and I think I found the right link, but it appears to be broken. Maybe the link you have is good. Thanks, Eddie.

    Here you go

    Greatest Hornet EVAR!!

    THIS IS THE THREAD ENTRY TOU NEED!

    There should be a few updates to the v16.X comming out later this year, but for now, this is awesome as-is!!

    Make sure you install the C++ Redistributable from THIS POST, or the FCS won't work. And it's an amazingly incredible FCS too.
