The Realair Scout.
for me there's a few i fly regularly.... Vans RV-4, I.C.P Bingo, CTSW (Real world flight experience with that one, including an engine failure on downwind and having to cut downwind short ), I.C.P Savannah and the FFS Vans RV-7...
"Αίεν Υψικρατείν "
"Between This and Death By Bonga Bonga, You'll Choose Death"
My fave 2 seaters: NOTE: Some are actually modeled with more than two seats, but I use them as two seaters for hauling cargo...I don't move people!
Default Piper Cub
Bill Lyon's Piper Cub package
Brian Gladden's Cessna 140
Brain Gladden's Piper Super Pacer (not really sure if it is a two seater or not....but I use it as a two seater hauling cargo into the Alaskan bush)
FSDB Lockheed L-10 Electra (okay...it has way more than 2 seats, but I pretend the ones in the back are not there and that I am hauling cargo instead of people....never heard boxes of cereal and tater chips scream)
J.E. Narcizo's PA-18 Super Cub
Milton Shupe and Crew's Beech D-18 cargo variants
Joe Binka's G-44A Widgeon (the radial powered one with the VC....not the inline one with no VC....wish that bird had a VC).
Many of the above, but particularly the LIC Aeroncas because of the way it is possible to fly solo from A to B, pick up a visible passenger and return home, giving a bit more point to a flight.
Rats - why won't anything work properly first time?
Can you please satisfy my curiosity - who is & where can one find 'Geds Percivals'?
it's a singular, his Prentice. http://pavaservices.co.uk/cfs/ currently under (re) construction, but before his last retirement he released a beta. Seems unavailable but thank goodness he's back from the brink and back building planes, his are some of my favourite ever CFS2/FS9 planes.
Unless I'm mistaken, his beta is still available on the FS Argentina site. Scroll about halfway down the page of the following link. There are several repaints on Britsim for this model. I hadn't heard he was updating his Prentice...which is a nice surprise! It was excellent just as a beta!...but before his last retirement he released a beta. Seems unavailable
One (two) things I like about threads like this are getting a heads-up about something you missed and a reminder about something that's been collecting dust in the back of the hanger.
Thanks - that now rings a bell in my poor befuddled head!!!!! He is doing an update slowly & actually has asked me to see if I can help improve the FDE!! I just didn't recognise the psedonym! The interim update is on his website (I seem to have lost his web address at the moment!) & I am just waiting for some details of the Pilots notes from Martin!
edit: Just found the link for Jed (Jeff Marsh) - www.pavaservices.co.uk/CFS/Prentice.htm although he says its for CFS it does work in FS9
The ICP Savannah was mentioned here, and that's an interesting plane. ICP used to be the European distributor for Zenair, and the Savannah is a dead ringer for the CH 701. On their website Zenair claims it's an unauthorized copy that ICP is selling, so you could say when you fly the Savannah, you're also flying Chris Heintz's CH 701. Two planes in one!
It's actually a four seater, but I enjoy the STOL performance of Brian Gladden's CH 801. It even has a cargo pod.
I fly mainly low/slow civilian jobs. So many of those mentioned are permanently in my hangar. Two that I fly frequently not mentioned yet (unless I missed them) are the absolutely wonderful Aeronca K and Ryan SC by Steven Myers (and anything else by him) and Lionheart's fabulous payware Wittmann Tailwind. Another that has been in my hangar for years is the strange little Anderson-Greenwood Model 14, by Tim Conrad. It is a beautiful model that can be seen here: http://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/conten...list&fid=88160
Yeah, the A-G's a sweet little ship and by all accounts it's a very nice aircraft to fly in the real world, too. Too bad it didn't go into bigger production. It'd be one of those aircraft I'd like to see revived as an LSA, along with the Ercoupe, using modern, lightweight composite materials and the superb Rotax 912 engine. One of the last remaining A-G Model 14's is up for sale over at Courtesy Aircraft Sales if you've got $64K laying about.Originally Posted by binarkansas;724860Another that has been in my hangar for years is the strange little Anderson-Greenwood Model 14, by Tim Conrad.

As long as we're talking about small aircraft to fly low and slow I'd like to recommend a place to fly them. I've looked at several virtual airlines over the last couple of years and a few months ago I joined St Paul Virtual Airline and it's great. They have a Bush/VFR section and that's where I do almost all of my flying now. You need to do one regular required vfr flight a month and then you can fly any of their flights, vfr bush type, from all over the world. They have about 2000 of them setup in flight tours. The whole thing is free. http://www.stpaulairlines.com/
