Kudos. Great Aircraft!
I was on vacation for a few weeks, so I was away from MSFS and the JF 146 for a while. We got home a couple of days ago and I installed v.1.5 and have had a few flights and I just wanted to let your team know what a remarkable job you have all done on this bird!
I have a few of the other high quality jetliners that came out recently, and they are excellent as well, but this 146 is where I'm spending all my time. It looks, sounds, and flies like a dream. I love that you guys used the WT FMC to get things going. It is so easy to use. I do look forward to a more prototypical choice for FMC, but this was a great idea to get things going!
Bravo! Excellent product!

Enjoying it as well! Regional jet, cargo options, pre gps avionics... just what I wanted. I really like the autopilot sync feature, now I wish more aircraft had this
@highlander_821 I agree completely. It is addictive
@highlander_821 Same boat here! I gravitate towards shorter legs anyhow in the sim, and the 146 is just perfect for that. I deselected the FMC from my bird and love plotting out a route to cruise below FL180 flying along the V Airways across the US. And I really appreciate how responsive and attentive the development staff are on the forums here. They’re actively listening to things people want/need to improve the airplane, and the latest version is just a dream to fly with my Honeycomb Bravo setup and Saitek Radio panel. Having the key binds for autoflight IAS mode, ALT ARM, and sync push to hold just feels so right. Planning the departure procedure and executing it feels like such an accomplishment every time. I love the other aircraft released recently, too, but this mode of flying just hits differently, and I am also finding that I am spending all my time in the 146 right now.
Yep, it is very satisfying to pull off a nice, smooth flight and good approach and landing with this little bird. I had the JF version of this plane in P3D, but I really preferred the QW version on that platform. This MSFS version from JF compares very favorably to that one. They both really capture the challenge and the quirks of these fun little regionals. They both hand-fly very nicely.

@highlander_821 couldn't agree more. Very nice job JF! I really like flying the BAe 146 in MSFS
