Perhaps we can set up a category to have aircraft requests in the same way we have airport requests. Give me a chance to set it up over this weekend.

You forgot McDonnell Douglas

Many of those aren’t in regular commercial service anymore. I definitely think the aircraft thread is important, though.

Yeah, a lot of them aren’t, but I guess if the plane still exists an airline could buy it anyway.

1 Like

Not really. You’re not able to buy aircraft such as a DC-2 and operate them as there’s no legal way to do that. The aircraft no longer have a type rating and aren’t allowed to be flown commercially in some cases, or flown at all in others.

Private jets such as the Citation and Gulfstream have no place in the game. Same goes for the P.180, and the Rapide, etc…

That makes sense, although I took the Gulfstream out already.
I presume the Taylor Aerocar is fine, though.

Some of these I see a point in adding. However, I don’t see why we should add things like the Il-18, as it’s in service with one airline and isn’t really a good addition to the game. Additionally, future aircraft, such as the C919 aren’t allowed until they’re in regular commercial service with airlines. However, I totally understand adding stuff like the Let 410 and the short aircraft.

@dkdd There’s no way the MD-83 holds 140,000 gallons of fuel

And this is why I disabled the aircraft addition page :sweat_smile:

Yeah, I definitely agree. Some of these aircraft are technically in service and have been produced, but there really isn’t a use for them. However, I think for a lot of them it would be useful to add more aircraft variety to the game.

Should we add CRJ550 and A319NEO?
CRJ550 is operational and NEO is certified.
Oh and E195-E2

CRJ550 and E195E2 I agree, but the A319neo isn’t yet in service. Provided that those first two are in service which I think they are but not 100% haha.

The A319neo though has received certification for both the CFM and the P&W engines…
