I'm still saving up $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

The PMDG MD-11 is the only add-on that I'll consider buying, in which it's real world counterpart doesn't have too many operators (really two on scheduled passenger flights). I'll definitely be getting it though!

The FS9 Standalone isn't available yet, but it looks like the combo version is. Why else would there be add-on liveries ready for download on the downloads page?

The only reason I would be getting this would be to fly Fedex flights, but I'm assuming that its going to cost a bunch so I don't think I'll even bother.

I'm not questioning PMDG's quality at all! They are totally awesome!

Thanks!

I bought her the second I got home from school last night and it's.... there really are no words.
It's amazingly complex, it makes Concorde look and feel very easy. It will take DAYS of manual reading before even I can fly her.

Wish I had the time to get to her this week!

That's the way it is for PMDG. When you look at it in perspective, PMDG is the Flytampa of aircraft makers, top notch and 100% realistic. I'm considering this as my first payware aircraft (that I will buy, my best friend gives me all of his PMDGs for free)!

Decided to put off homework tonight to do a little MD-11 homework.

After an hour and a half of intense studying and programming, switches, etc.... I think I have it down well enough to try (with manuals open of course) flying her on a real trip. When I get the chance I need to take her on KL606 SFO-AMS!

For those still considering: It's absolutely AMAZING, by FAR the best aircraft I've ever flown in FS.

When I do indeed buy it, I think I'll try a full Amsterdam-St. Maarten-Curacao-Amsterdam routing.

Hey Nick, will we see any screens from that AMS-SFO flight?

you said it. Thats too much money for me to be chucking away for a plane that has barely no operators anymore. Who flies the MD-11 anymore anyways??
