I'll add the beautifull sceneries of Jim Dhaenens (Pensacola and Meridian are my favorite ones)!!
Taking off from Jim's NAS Pensacola in Dino's T45C, flying East during few minutes just before a 3rd wire trapping on the Javier's Nimitz : what else? I love FSX/Acceleration!!
Milton's Spartan ( FSX-ed by FSNorthwest ), Tim Conrad's OS2U Kingfisher and Dave Garwood's Auster. Grab those three and you've gone a long way to getting all the aircraft you'll ever need.
If, like me, you fly around the UK using the Horizon VFR FSX photo scenery (payware), you can populate pretty much all of England and Wales with super quality airfields all free of charge.
You will need some scenery libraries too, for the full effect, but they are all readily available at FS.Com or Avsim. Once you have the libraries installed, these airfields are less than 1mb each to DL. A great many also have autogen trees for the surounding areas too!
Some great work by several talented freeware developers, all listed here...
This one is fully 'stand alone' with no need to DL other libraries, hence a 20mb DL size!
To see how good these are, click the link below for an example of a fully detailed aerodrome that is just a runway in default FSX...
Dino's Tomcat and T-45
Sylvain's ultra detailed Clemeceau

"ENB Series" HDR plugin (and the night vision mod)
Hi, Massimo Taccoli has uploaded today at Flightsim a fixed cfg for his Canadair CL215 MT215FSX.ZIP. Despite being a port, I love to have her besides that "star" Catalinas, Albatrosses and Gooses. Hey! OZX Redux Goose, also freeware!
...and don't forget Lukasz's Pole Mokotowskie and Suwałki, and Sylvain's Flols trailer.

I found the link to the ENB Series HDR plugin however the page is no longer there. Is there anywhere I can download this to try it out? I had never seen it before. I use an Nvidia GTX 260 video card and the last HDR plugin I tried did not work with that card. Anyone know if the enbseries will work?
This thread is very promising but not very active... Shame... Here's a few ideas...
There is a wonderful freeware Native FSX/DX10 Embraer EMB-120 in the works (by euroastar350 from Eagle Rotorcraft Simulations, based on the Erick Cantu unfinished version). Still lacking a VC. Some 2D panel available at simviation. Screenshot by Altec. Eaglestar repaint by J. Zeitschel.
I like a lot the Posky Embrear ERJ-135. I think it's a FS9 model. It ports over to FSX ok. There is a very nice VC if you replace some gauges (something wrong with some light reflection effect over the glass cockpit I believe). I've reworked the 2D panel to make it look like the VC (in the Posky version, the gauges are in different locations, I hate when VC and 2D are not similar!)

ERJ-135 by Project Open Sky. Midwest Connect repaint by Samy Fay. 2D panel adapted from the one made by Pierre Fasseaux. VC panel fixed for FSX with default FS9 Lear 45 gauges (yes you read right, downgrading to older Lear PFD and EICAS is the trick here!).
IMO This thread should be a permanent Sticky :salute:
If you like Gliders, search David Rowberry at flightsim.com, he has a nice collection of hangliders and sailplanes including the Genesis and the Horten. Michal Puto's Pirat is a winner too.
As everyone says, anything from the Pig master himself is great. With his birds, you can cover just about every genre of FSing except for maybe gliders(see above) and tubeliners (check HJG, Posky..etc).
