In the meantime ive been using FSEarthtiles to rip VFR,its a cool little program which has also had a lot of work done to it over the past few months its a little more hands on than TP but its great for those areas you really want to keep that just have been done yet by the major VFR suppliers

Depends on what type you want to fly, but if you do not yet own an aircraft by RealAir simulations thats where I would start.

I happen to like WWII fighters, and the best WWII warbird is the Shockwave P-40 seen above, although when the RealAir Spitfire gets released that will be by far the best aircraft ever, even better than the SF260, as least to me.

With that said the SF260 is probably the best all around and most well liked by many people, especially becuase of its flight model. If you want a small aircraft that is very agile and aerobatic the SF260 is the choice.

The Captain Sim C-130 might actually be the coolest FSX add on I have yet to see, everything about it is amazing, so if you want a bigger aircraft you cant go wrong with this one.

So those are my three picks for THE best aircraft add on, but it you wait a couple more month the new king will be released (RealAir Spitfire).

Generally speaking if you buy from a few key developers you are sure to get a quality products. On my list RealAir is clearly number one and I buy everything they make. Number two is Shockwave productions with all WWII stuff, and number three is Aerosoft.

If you happen to be into airliners the PMDG 747 is about the best out there. Not only is it the most complexe addon you can buy, but its the most expensive, about $75.

There are too many to list here, but my favorites right now are the Flight1 Pilatus PC-12 and the PMDG 747.
This one is also pretty good.
