British Airways ERJ-170

Post by Garyck » 12 Sep 2009, 09:09

Flightsim have one up to download. You do need to change the Panels and sounds as they are for the cessna :rolling: , Luckily for me I had sounds and ERJ170 Panel already, but I can't remember where I got them from.

Download - http://www.flightsim.com/kdl.php?fid=138916

Does anyone have any idea what routes they'll fly?

Here's a few screen shots I took this morning at LCY (Londo City), at dawn, just to see how it handled before coming to work.

Forgot to mention, with a few more tweaks it may be one to be added to British Airways Fleet page as it says ON ORDER for the ERJ170

Nice shots!

Since I feel this topic is more suited to the Screenshot Forum, I'll move it.

Just a little reminder to make sure you have the correct AFCAD for LCY if flying from there. In my first screen shot the Aircraft are parked facing the terminal, It didn't click untill this morning, that they should face the runway.

I've updated mine now so it looks more realistic.

For FS9/2004 users only here's the latest afcad for default scenary

That is a very sorry excuse for an AFCAD.
I'd hate to think anyone would enjoy flying to LCY with that file installed.

Although not as recent, and is not A318 capable, here is a much nicer (and more accurate) AFCAD for EGLC:

Sorry you think its so bad. I'm new to finding correct AFCAD's and never actually heard about them untill last week when trying to get better scenary for FS2004. I don't even know what should or shouldn't be one one.

Perhaps I should've kept my views to myself on this and the Aircraft, I realised that the default gates were wrong and was only trying to help other members should they consider flying out of LCY.

It's alright, Gary. There's nothing wrong with making suggestions, and I have used some fairly poor quality AFCAD's in my time. As you use them more frequently, you'll come to pick up which ones are better than others (and perhaps make a few of your own).

A great place to start your hunt for AFCADs.
