    I just watched a video about this product, and a competing one of the same plane by Carenado...

    The Carenado looks like a nice super clean newer Arrow that a Doctor might buy for himself, while the Just Flight really does fit the vintage era that fits this thread! It seems it is more like the fight school planes I've flown! Or the cargo dogs flying newspapers and fresh fish to regional communities. Out around Western Canada, at Vancouver BC, there is a small fleet of old GA planes used for commercial cargo flights, C-152's, Piper Navajos, Islanders, Caravans, Dakotas and such, and that's what they did do: newspapers fish and so on.They'd fly the graveyard hours a lot.

    Sadly one morning came to work and discovered a cargo crew had crashed into a mountainside on Saltspring Island in the middle of the night, that's near CYYJ Victoria International Airport, Friday Harbour, and Orcas Islands. I don't recall why they crashed, but a couple people I worked with were very upset because they knew the pilots that died.

    Payware Vintage aircraft inbound! (in less than 24 hrs time):


    Bell 47 from FlyInside

    This is the famous "M.A.S.H. Chopper" from an old movie and TV series of the same name, that revolves around a US military medical field hospital near a battlefield in the Korean war. The Bell 47 is seen in the TV show introduction bringing casualties on mounted stretchers, landing close to the tents of the hospital.

    This is one of the earliest of truly useable helicopters, and while it was too small and lower powered to do some heli tasks, it was plenty great for doing some jobs, notably: helicopter pilot training, crop spraying, traffic observation, TV camera shots, animal tracking. I've seen these doing those types of jobs even in more recent years, so while it may be simple, old and have some size/power limitations, it's definately stood the test of time and airworthy endurance!

    So while officially MSFS won't have helicopters until sometime in 2022... there is the freeware H135 super-modern very sophisticated Airbus super-chopper... and now this payware Bell 47 by FlyInside, complete with fantastic clear bubble canopy viewing!

    The developer apparently has some 20,000 hours in the real Bell 47, so it seems likely this will fly with realism, and the video below has a review by a real heli pilot (though he admits he's not flown this type IRL before):

    Forum Moderators: any chance you could delete post #32 ? It wouldn't let me edit to fix, so I reposted the fixed youtube link into post #33

    So did you finally buy the chopper?
    It's quite appealing to me, though a bit expensive at the moment. Also, I hate to buy from yet another store: I hope it becomes available from MS Marketplace or Simmarket eventually. In addition, I don't know if I would manage to pilot it at all. Flying helis is sort of a controlled accident to me!!

    That aside, guess you've seen the recent news on the home page about the Eagle, the Stearman and the CONCORDE!!

    Ah not yet, the 'puter went down. And I'm not exactly the most competent rotor driver!


    however...


    GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!

    Flight sim developers "Pilots" have announced the Boeing Clipper, the B314 flying boat!

    Now THAT is vintage aviation!

    I would luv to see a B727, B732, B733 or B735... something in that range. Nothing too fancy (not a "study" level), but something fun to fly above the default MSFS level but below a PMDG level in the $30's range. I would think those would be popular.

    Above the default MSFS level is proving to be a hard act to follow for some - even if the graphics match, the functionality doesn't or vice-versa... However I agree, Fifty North where are you now?

    I'm sure many are having that same thought, including probably a few devs.

    Not vintage but maybe classic: Project Mega Pack (the livery guys) have been building a 737-800 from scratch for several months and it's nearing completion now. Check out the progress on their discord channel here: https://discord.com/channels/7464508...22346201727007
    This is freeware and yet the attention to detail is positively OCD. If I were PMDG I'd be worried right now!
