All HJG supplied B737-300, -400, and -500 aircraft base packs (models and FDE) are both "FS2004" and "FSX" compatible/portable.

All HJG supplied B737-300, -400, and -500 sound packs are "FS2004" and "FSX" compatible/portable .... separate audio files for each aircraft type and FS version.

Thanks for sharing Mark. Looks like a decent skin. :thumbup:

So wish there was a P3D compatible Classic 737, there's only so much fun you can have w a freebie 2D panel and for the life of me haven't been able to get the Feelthere/Wilco to work.
Such a shame the QWings guys cancelled that project.

Yes, you need very deep pockets to take on BA, QANTAS or AirNZ. Here in Oz, there were many attempts to become the third domestic carrier after TAA (=QANTAS) and Ansett. Virgin eventually succeeded because in their business model, each flight had to support around 60 non-flying employees. Ansett went broke because each flight of theirs had to feed about 160 non-flying employees. QANTAS had slightly better numbers, but for years they appeared to be cross-subsidising their domestic operation from their international operation, and I very much doubt that that was legal.

'Propliner' is actually short for 'Proper airliner, with big rumbly radials'

I think NZ´s "small size" population base (one needs consistently high loadings to make a frill-free services work) had a lot to do with it too after KIWI opted to become a SKED carrier .... especially operating out of our provincial rather than principle centres, but, "YES" .... it was a great idea and I, too, was one of those whom was saddened by KIWI´s demise.

Sadly also .... I never got the chance to fly with them :( .... althogh I did know, and have some drealings with, Ewan WILSON at HLZ.

Had he/Ewan stuck to charter flights concept (per KIWI INTERNATIOBAL TRAVEL AIRLINES .... which KIWI international was founded as) then "maybe" he might have lasted .... or at least lasted longer.


So wish there was a P3D compatible Classic 737, there's only so much fun you can have we a freebie 2D panel


"IF" .... you have an FS2004 base (or even an FSX one), then try ours (HJG´s) out.

We spent almost a years fine tuning the FDE´s "prior to" releasing our B737-300/400/500 flightline last December .... supported also by Benoit´s highly aurthentic CFM56 soundpacks (sepatate versions for FS2004 and FSX) as well .... in ordre to try´n give everyone the very best B733/4/5 experience we could offer.

Unfortunately we/HJG can´t offer FSX users a panel option .... but as I mentioned above .... there are non-HJG offered panel options available at FS.COM and which are based on the very same panel we opted to use .... just search "Targan UNUTMAZ" ;)


Here in Oz, there were many attempts to become the third domestic carrier


Don´t forget COMPASS .... and COMPASS 2 as well ;) :(

Hey Mark. Thanks I will do. I still have an FSX install and the Wilco 733 works fine there, I just find myself on P3D more these days. Always love to fly other models too so will grab a copy of the HJG for sure :thumbup:

Memorys...
A Boeing 737-400 was my first commercial aircraft in FS 2002... and over the years it was a Boeing 737-300 or -500 from Air Baltic, that brought me back to Riga.... Time ist running out for these Versions. The from Air Baltic are as far as i know more or less the last in regular service in the EU. In Russia UTair have the remaining ex Delta-Aircraft. 6 x -400, 32 x -500 ...

I am thankful for this coupy after Qualitywings has stopped his project.
