    Beware of gauges calibrated in "units" - the manufacturer will happily lie to you if you'd never know the difference (see: 737 flap detents).

    Is that kind of like a VIN number? There's a special place in grammar hell for people who use that term.

    I don't think they ever tried flying a Trident onto a carrier - I don't think it would end well (at the very least, you'd have 180-odd very sick passengers)!

    I'd wager there was a good chance that he flew the real 9001U, then - it's a very special airplane, the -200 prototype. Sadly cut up into beer cans... I suppose everything has its time.

    American used to, but that was Pete Tishma's doing. Anyone remember how he tried to patent the term "flight simulation?" I think he thought he was Gene Simmons.

    I wouldn't, the TFE731 and CJ805 sound nothing alike. The default sounds are excellent TFE731 clips that suffer from being put together poorly.

    I realize that this is early in development, but the 737 needs some major work - it looks like an early pre-Advanced -200 with a fin extension and new engines thrown on. Look at the wingtips, slats,...

    Funny thing - the tax issue is probably one of the biggest reasons I don't do commercial work in the first place - my taxes are screwy enough as-is! ;)

    To each their own, but their business is to sell units. That concept didn't work so well for Fly! or Flight Unlimited in the end.
