Thank you for a great aircraft

Post by RobdeVries » 02 Sep 2006, 12:41

In real life I'm a Saab 900 Classic driver, so an aircraft from Saab finds a soft spot :)

I had no hesitation to buy this outstanding quality aircraft for a very nice price. I got 3 different planes! And everything is just in the right place, textures are crisp but no frame rate killers, every sound is there, every movement and functionality is portrayed and does actually something :)

I just pulled the normal checklist out and fired her up (the Swiss one) and did a few patterns and ooh man, I just had a few real life flight lessons, but this feels and looks very convincing to me.

From my heart a big thank you because I have a good procedure trainer and a very nice aircraft to 'fly' with.

No back to flying...the Saab

all the best,

Hello Folks,

It's been said by Rob above. That bird is impressive!
It is probably the first FS aircraft that is flying not straight ahead if you let the stick go. Sad that my butt is not feeling the motion of the aircraft flying in not so smooth air. Take care in crosswind landings as this bird is exactly doing what a plane is for: Flying! Whith all the physics that FS can give it, it seems to me that the SAAB has more than correct aerodynamics.
Finally i can learn flying the hard way (i broke the gear in my first attempt).

Ladies and Gent's of the SibWings team: You did a darned great job!

Thanks very much

Well it took me 2hrs 45 mins to download, but it would be have been worth a ten hour wait!

This aircraft is something else, only thing missing is the smell.

A huge thankyou to all the team.
