One reason why I love FSX is the CRJ-700 and its virtual cockpit. After I made some tweaks to FSX, I was finally able to fire up the heavier medal and took the United Express CRJ-700 (operating by SkyWest no less) from Denver (KDEN) to Santa Barbara (KSBA). It was a great flight, with the only hiccup being ATC sending me on a heading of 185 forever! I ended having to change flight plans to get to SBA. (this was an issue with FS9 ATC that MS didn’t fix it) Anyway, I eventually got to SBA, even though it took longer than I thought it would.
The CRJ looked beautiful and handled like a champ. Banking was not too over courageous and climbing to FL340 happened breathlessly. I think the best was landing on runway 7 on a moonlit night.
If you don’t have FSX, get it.
