The basic fighter for most NATO countries for several decades, this aircraft deserved a place in FSX. For the last year Aerosoft has been working on a high detail model of this aircraft and now you will see the Fighting Falcon fly into the virtual world of FSX.

The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a multirole jet fighter build by General Dynamics for the US Air Force. The lightweight fighter became the ubiquities fighter as it was exported to 25 nations and a record breaking production of over 4,400 aircraft. Updated every decade it remains the basic fighter for nations worldwide. Apart from being a very serious fighter it remains about the most enjoyable aircraft to fly with the superb maneuverability and power that allows vertical climbs. Visibility is unparalleled in the frameless bubble canopy. This enjoyment remains fully intact in FSX.

The Aerosoft version includes the most used versions in the highest possible detail. With close to half a million vertices it most likely is the most detailed aircraft ever designed for FSX. The realism of this product is great that parts of the product are sold to professional users and is used in the first stages of training of pilots in 3 countries. Where other internally developed aircraft try to merge all existing models into one 'universal' model, the F-16 was designed with pure realism in mind, down to the smallest detail each of the 21 models is as the real aircraft patrols the skies. In FSX the F-16 is a joy to fly, with the controllability of a light aircraft and capable of altitudes of 50.000 feet and speeds exceeding Mach1. It is extremely agile yet easy to control (it will fly where you point the nose) it allows you to explore the environment of FSX like never before.

Question: What is the best F-16 addon for FSX? Answer: Aerosoft’s F-16. Its that simple. Fighter jets in FSX are a touchy subject since FSX was never designed to be a combat sim platform. So developers of warplanes have to strike a delicate balance between functionality, appearance, and features to be simulated. Aerosoft’s implementation of the Lockheed Martin F-16 strikes that perfect balance.

It doesn’t take much to learn how to get airborne. The fly by wire system is perfectly implemented and has been verified by many real F-16 pilots. There are many “liveries” displaying all sorts of stores and stuff you can carry on the Falcon’s wings and underbelly.

The virtual cockpit is not HD, and most of the F-16 systems are not simulated. If you’re looking for a complex F-16 sim, check out Falcon 4.0 Allied Force, or Falcon BMS. Aerosoft’s F-16 is designed to look good, and be easy to fly. You can’t fire the gun, and you can’t bomb anything. It does have a primitive radar that you can use to find and track AI or Multiplayer Aircraft. It also has basic VOR navigation capabilities. You can also load an FSX flight plan and I will show on the right MFD that you can use to fly to your destination.

Also, a fun feature of this addon – if you need to top off your tanks, just find any commercial jumbo jet in flight (AI or multiplayer), fly into refueling position and voila, your tanks are topped off.
Flying the Aerosoft F-16 is loads of fun and is a must have if you plan to do any virtual airshows. The F-16 is also a blast to fly through the grand canyon, barnstorming the canyon walls and what not.

Landing, however, is a different story. From an aviation design perspective, the F-16’s design is an abomination. Without the Flight Control Computer, and the fly by wire technology, the F-16 is unflyable. So most of what you’ve learned over the years re: aviation and how to fly planes, largely doesn’t apply to the F-16. However, you can adapt. Landing the F-16, you’ll probably crash your first time, unless you’ve done the research, and know what it takes to safely land this bird.

In Summary, the Aerosoft F-16 is a bundle of fun. Learning to land safely is a bit tricky, but definitely worth the effort. 5 stars.

Diese F-16 ist eifach cool!
Das V-Cockpit gefällt mir sehr gut und auch sonst haben die bei Aerosoft bei diesem Fighter alles richtig gemacht, ich finde hier bekommt man was für sein Geld.

This is an exceptional product and the screenshots show the highly detailed exteriors and interiors of the aircraft.

But dont expect anything else. There are no drag chutes to deploy, no dust covers when cold.

The great news is that it is almost bug free but do check the aerosoft forum first to see if any issues would hit your frame rates.

Well done aerosoft - a 5/5 is a deserved score!

RICHER SIMULATIONS - CARIBSKY: TBPB 2020 FSX P3D
Graham
Brilliant scenery, and excellant after sales service from Richer Simulations. I had problems installing in P3D v5.3, but after an exchange of two messages with RS, it was all sorted out. Extremely fast response on their part. Turns out I had a problem with my SODE installation which prevented the tarmac and aprons showing. Uninstalled and reinstalled SODE and hey presto! All good. Very pleased. This scenery is compatible with P3D v5.3.
FRANCE VFR - AIRPORT FRANCE PACK 2 MSFS
damon
Acceptable quality. mainly use of photo textures, low res in places. good pricing and cost effective way to build up some airports in the sim. not at quality level of some of the better well known developers but to be fair, not marketed that way either and priced well. 3 star quality but extra star for price
FRANCE VFR - AIRPORT FRANCE PACK 1 MSFS

FRANCE VFR - LFRK - CAEN CARPIQUET MSFS
damon
One of the best France VFR airports so far, texture quality appears better than some of the earlier airports from the packs. I think the earlier airports are 'ok' quality but priced accordingly, but I was surprised how much better Caen was. still not completely on par with the big name developers but not at that price point either, I think for the price represents very good value and great addon with the France VFR NW pack. 4 star quality but 5 overall due to price
TROPICALSIM - BUENOS AIRES EZEIZA SAEZ MSFS
Peter
This is a decent Tropicalsim airport. It's basic, but does the job.
PAULO RICARDO - SANTOS DUMONT AIRPORT (SDU) RIO DE JANEIRO CITY LANDMARKS (INCLUDE) MSFS
Peter
Really well modelled. Currently this is my favourite South American airport in MSFS. Great attention to detail and makes full use of the textures, PBR and night lighting MSFS has to offer. It also has some scenic and challenging approaches!
JUSTSIM - LARNACA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Peter
Overall disappointing. Textures are not great. Night lighting is poor, except for the car park! Hopefully it gets an update.
MARIO NORIEGA DESIGNS - CAPRONI-VIZZOLA C-22J VENTURA MSFS
Kenny
Phenomenal bang for your buck with this one. This little jet is tons of fun to fly around. I enjoyed the cockpit modeling a lot, as it really does give off that strong 1980's aesthetic vibe. Fuel consumption feels about where it should be for a jet like this. Systems functionality is decent, though as with the vast majority of MSFS modules, don't expect 100% fidelity. Everything that really counts is there though, and more than just the bare bones. The flight model is fairly forgiving, though that's pretty much true for basically all MSFS aircraft. You will want to ere towards the longer options of municipal airport runways, as you're not going to have the same stopping distance as something like a 172, but that makes sense given the type of aircraft it is and the amount of energy you'll have on touchdown. All in all, would recommend. I kind of wish the civilian variant had actually entered into full production and had been a bit more popular. (Though it did see service with the Italian military as a trainer.) This must have been a joy to fly.
ONET VALLEY - PHNOM PENH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX
Adam
Scenery is incorrect, lighting doesnt exist, taxiways appear to be dirt. Dont waste your money. Default is better.
FLYTAMPA - KAITAK FS2004 FSX P3D
Christopher
If your considering the purchase of this don't wait. By far my favorite airport to fly into. The level of detail, the vehicles, the static aircraft with equipment there at the aircraft, the surrounding area around the airport--Awesom-
e. To top it off with that level of detail framerates not even noticeable. You wont find a more detailed airport anywhere.
