Since the early 1960's, Fournier aircraft have been known under the RF logo throughout all the places in the world where passion for aviation is at stake.

With the RF series, René Fournier created a new family of aircraft, a new way to fly. Far away from the race for power that was all the rage at the time, he imagined a thin plane, requiring little power. Everyone now recognizes the visionary flash he caught : a few decades later, he would be considered a promoter of green aviation.

Lack of capital, René Fournier did not have the commercial success he deserved. Yet the market that he opened with this new type of machine was there. Other manufacturers with real financial resources took the unscrupulous opportunity to plagiarize this aircraft with long wings that European administration has named, 40 years later, TMG (Touring motor gliders) to distinguish them from true motorized gliders.

And even though the Civil Aviation of the time did not understand the real interest of its formula, imposing inappropriate standards, the flying characteristics of his planes, their low operating maintenance cost and their long life cycle are now universally recognized and are the basis for a well deserved reputation confirmed by very high resale prices on the second hand market.

The RF5B Sperber (Sparrow) is a redesign of the Fournier RF5, a tandem two-seater aircraft designed in 1968 and manufactured under licence by Sportavia.

About 200 aircraft of this type were produced until 1975.

MP DESIGN STUDIO - GUIMBAL CABRI G2 FSX P3D
Kelvin Perez
I give this helicopter 5 stars for many reasons. Is a must buy if you are a helicopter enthusiast, has great flight dynamics, despite the FSX/P3D limitations they managed to simulate many of the different aspects of the helicopter flying characteristics-
. Is very well modeled, could use a bit of attention to the texturing like adding some Ambient Occlusion baked into the textures to add more detail, but let's not get too technical. it is a great add-on and i highly recommend it.

Excellent scenery, highly recommended! From its perfectly detailed terminals to the addition of SODE jetways, this airport is a treat to fly in and out of regardless the time of day or weather.
REX4 WEATHER ARCHITECT FSX FSXSE P3D
Ákos Bohus
A BIT DISAPPOINTED! -
(I'will tell you my reasons below to understand why) (1) First of all, there is no draw smoothing options in this utility. No map zooms allowed, which could be annoying in country sized maps. No draw size can be modified, you will have to adjust the settings of the clouds inside to get better result. (2) -
Not so accurate. The drawn clouds will be smudged away in unwanted areas. In country sized maps the weather somtimes decreased to local. (3) -
HEAVY ISSUE REVEALED TO ME: No injection could be succeeded only with this method using FSX:SE! 1. DO NOT launch Weather Architect first! 2. Launch FSX and set all the options you want 'ready to go': including the aircraft selection, time and date, and airport. 3. Now launch WA and create your desired weather or select them from the saved WEATHER THEMES. 4. DO NOT modify anything in FSX! 5. HIT FLY NOW! (this is probably a simconnect related issue) However-
, nice but must be much better!
PKSIM - ALFONSO BONILLA ARAGÓN SKCL FSX P3D
Axel Grau
This is a very nicely done product. Very detailed and complete. Corresponds to the actual state of the airport, including the new international terminal and runway ID
JUSTFLIGHT - L35 BIG BEAR CITY FSX P3D
Sam Britner
Really cant think of anything more they could have added, beutiful high resolution textures, realistic markings and taxiways and 10/10 static aircraft (optional). The one thing that i dont like is that you have to install the turbulent terminal (turbulent's version of FTXcentral) which i dont like as i only use one of their products. Apart from that the scenery is stunning, would reccomend.
