I notice there are several varients of the 80. the 82, 83... The one on which I flew has an engine right next to my window seat. Thank the gods for my noise cancelling headphones. I will check out this package when I get some money. Flat broke at the moment. Was hoping for a freeware version.

TimothyThe Coolsky Super 80 published by Flight 1 is a great payware plane and there is a AA repaint available on Avsim. I've had it for a couple of months and its easily one of my favourites. Works with FS9 and FSX.Brent

I recently flew in an American MD80 from Florida to San Francisco with a short stop in Dallas.I really want to recreate that flight, but can't find a flyable American Airlines MD80, freeware, or payware. Any suggestions?Thanx,Timothy

I had grabbed an SAS MD81 for FSX from the library here back in october but can't seem to find it in the library listings now.Get back to me if you want to give that one a spin.DaveESSB

I'll vouch for that too. It's the second most absorbing simulation to the PMDG Queen.

If you have FS9, I heartily recommend the Samuli freeware MD80 found here http://efis.altervis...Samuli MD80.htmIf not, I'll add my recommendation that the Coolsky Super 80 is a great payware plane.BlairCYOW

rhett:correct, the coolsky MD80 has no FMC. the ONS system is well modeled. there is no 'fancy' navigation display. you need to program waypoints using lat/lon, no waypoints and names (you can import FS9 and FSX .pln files). there is no AIRAC database. you have a climb, descent and engine performance computers. think of this setup as being DOS, where a modern aircraft runs windows. lots of fun to program and fly - NOT an aircraft that you push buttons and let the computers do all the work. the pilot is flying this aircraft ... which makes the sim a lot of fun!!some MD80 facts -* the '80' name comes from the proposed in-service date (ie, 1980).* the first MD80 is the MD81 (what coolsky has modeled). the MD81 is really a DC-9-81.* program launched aug. 1977.* first flight MD81 18 oct. 1979.* first delievery (swissair) 13 sept. 1980.source: the vital guide to commerical aircraft and airliners (2nd ed.), 2000, hewson r.

It is my understanding that the Flight1/Coolsky Super 80 represents an MD-80 from about 1979. As such it has no FMC. Is this correct, that it has no FMC?RhettAMD 3700+ (@2585 mhz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (Guru3D 93.71), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2gb Corsair XMS 3-3-3-8 (1T), WD 150 gig 10000rpm Raptor, WD 250gig 7200rpm SATA2, Seagate 120gb 5400 rpm external HD, CoolerMaster Praetorian

Both of those repaints are for fs9. Is there an FSX version or do I need to convert them by hand? I'm not very good at that as seen in my version of the virgin 737-800, albeit I did that from scratch.I also am having trouble downloading from AVsim for some reason. I'm not sure why.
