The Boeing 777 holds the distinction as being the largest twin engine airliner in operation.
The 777 aircraft has a range of up to nine thousand miles carrying up to 500 passengers plus crew.
The development of the airliner for the first time in history involved collaboration by eight major airlines
All Nippon Airways, American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways, Delta Air Lines, Japan Airlines,
Qantas and United Airlines. Powered by Pratt & Whitney PW4084 engines, the largest turbofan engines on any such airframe,
gives the aircraft superb handling and performance. The flight deck cokpit is fully integrated fly-by-wire computerized
system giving pilots greater command and control. This Flight Simulator 777-200 mod package includes model, panels, sounds and custom gauges.

The Mirage 2000 manufactured by Dassault Aviation began operational service as a multi-role fighter bomber in October 1980.
The Mirage 2000 is a delta-wing design with canards and features a elongated tail fin for greater control in turns and dives. The aircraft is fitted in certain variation with tail hook for carrier landing and mid-air refueling arm
giving it longer mission duration and flight time. The first production model took flight in November 1982, and the aircraft went into service in November 1982. Later model aircraft were to be fitted with SARH missiles and the 'Super Atar' M-53-2 engine giving the aircraft the element of fast air-to-ground close support.

The Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules is an STOL military cargo transport aircraft capable of operating on rough or undeveloped
runways. Many variants of the C130 followed the intial design and prototype YC-130 which first flew in August 1954. After successfully entering military service
C-130s fufilled roles such as air refuleling tanker, tactical and command, gunship, search and rescue, vehicle and troop transport. After 50 years
of service this workhorse earns its place among the classic and still operational airplanes like the B-52 bomber.

The Vought A-7 Corsair add-on is an military attack aircraft designed to deliver payloads precisely
from aircraft carriers and land bases alike. The aircraft was the first
to feature a HUD (heads up display) and INS(inertial navigational system).
Powered by a Pratt & Whitney turbofan engine the A-7 took its maiden flight
on 27 September 1965. Download this superlative addon model and add weapons from

The Concorde manufactured by Aerospatiale-BAC in Toulouse was one of a few commercial passenger aircraft capable of achieving and sustaining
supersonic flight. The Concorde entered the history books on October 1st 1969 and debuted at the Paris Airshow later that year. The aircraft is a delta wing design
streamlined and thin bodied powered by twin spool Rolls-Royce/Snecma Olympus 593 engines. The Turbo-jets used after-burners during takeoffs
and transitioning past the sound barrier. As its design called for the Concorde trimmed the trans-atlantic flight time to roughly 3 1/2 hours flying well above normal
airways at 50,000+ ft. The distinctive "droop" nose allowed the pilot to increase stremlining and drag depending on the flights requirements
during takeoff, landing and cruise. This aircraft runs smoothly in FS2002 and FS2004 but has been modified for Flight Simulator X as well.

The de Havilland Canada Otter is an STOL aircraft (short takeoff and Landing) capable of enduring harsh conditions and
weather often flying into areas that very few aircraft can handle. The DHC-6 can be equipped with
skis, floats and tundra tires making it a truly versatile aircraft. The Otter took its maiden
flight in May of 1965 and its potential was immediately apparent. The subsequent Twin Otter utilizing Pratt & Whitney
turbine engines improved the durability and safety of the aircraft while retaining its STOL capabilities. The Otter is one a few aircraft
with the required combined strength and durabilty to fly in the Antartic.

The Embraer ERJ 145 is a regional jet designed to carry upwards of 50 passengers, other models include the ERJ-135, ERJ-140
and the military aircraft R-99.
The Brazilian company began intial designs in the early 1980s and with that began moving away from the design of the successful
EMB 120. The new design included a swept wing with winglets and Rolls Royce Allison engines mounted rear and underwing.
The ERJ 145 first took to the air on August 1995 with ExpressJet Airlines taking the first delivery in December 1996.
Embraer entered a partnership in 2003 with the Harbin Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation of Harbin, China.
