The problem is that many simulation devices don't do the aircraft justice, but there are solutions to this - namely in the form of the Just Flight Boeing 737 Professional package. Giving you unprecedented and professional access to one of the most revered aircraft of its era, you can really see just what the entire clamor is about.
First produced more than 40 years ago, the Boeing 737 is an aircraft that could still be used today to find effect. With this Just Flight package, you get access to the Boeing 737 in all of it's stunning detail, with every single little feature and mark that can be included added in for full exposure. One of the most impressive factors about the 737 was the sheer power that it brought to the table - and you can feel this in abundance within a few minutes of taking off.
Every single little detail has been accounted for to help make the most professional and realistic representation of a Boeing classic. If you are looking for something new to fly within an aircraft simulator, then the Boeing 737 Professional guide is just what you are looking for.
Bringing every little facet and feature to the fore, from the sound of the engines starting up to the incredible roar of the aircraft as it finally hit's top speed, right through to the realistic design features on the inside and outside, you get a truly spectacular rendition of the Boeing 737-200. The cockpit has been reworked completely from scratch to leave something that allows any pilot to step in, take off and really just enjoy themselves.
Every little feature has been included to give you the fullest, most enjoyable experience possible when you are in the skies. 2D instruments have been added to give you full control, as well as a completely bespoke Performance system that allows you to track everything you would want to know about the flight with ease.

This makes putting together an amazing flight experience using the Boeing 737-200 and all of its assorted features will never be easier, or more enjoyable.
The design is in-depth enough to give you maximum control, as well as making it easy to just let the flight take care of itself while you admire the world around you. Everything that was in the original Boeing 737 aircraft can be found here, giving you maximum realism as well as maximum professionalism in terms of design and also features.
Whether you have taken to the skies in a Boeing 737 in the past or you have always wanted to, this is the best way to enjoy it. The visuals of the aircraft have been modified to the very highest standards, using much higher native resolution and creating models that challenge the software the game runs on, making sure that you have the most realistic re-creation possible in front of you.
When you add in the huge amount of work that went into including genuine, authentic lighting systems just as you would see on the real thing those pitch black flights can become a lot more enjoyable with a clearly visible aircraft, rather than trying and failing to see one hundred yards in front!
Taking into account the hugely popular narrow framework of the Boeing 77, this faithful remake takes all of the main characteristics of the aircraft and makes them realistically apparent. With everything designed from scratch to make sure that the aircraft looks just as good as it can, even the smallest spoilers have been created using many hours of footage and research to give the look just right
The aircraft flies with the distinctive sound and feel of the JT-8D engines, which were some of the most unique at the time of their first inception into the aircraft. This gives you a far more unique sound than any other aircraft within the typical game itself - giving you an even greater sense of realism when you take to the skies as the sounds will becoming distinctive as the aircraft gets going
A specular map has been included to make sure that there is a realistic light style coming from the aircraft.

Different liveries included so that you can fly a Boeing 737-200 in the way that you want it to look. We give you all of the typically popular designs which have been made using various pieces of detail and innovation over the years to come up with the right design
Bump maps provided to get even more realistic feelings to the various liveries included, which makes sure that regardless of what company you fly under that you will have a truly authentic design right across the aircraft - with many different photos and angles used to create the liveries they look every bit as good as they would have in real life!
Vortex generators have been included to make sure that the aircraft is making the same style of trail as it wound in real life - this is incredibly powerful, and adds another sense of realism if you fly from a third-person camera
Full passenger seating is easily viewable from the cabin windows, allowing the aircraft to feel even more alive and detailed than it may have at first
One of the most impressive parts of the design process has been the hard work that has went into the long-term design of the cockpit features. This gives you maximum control over where the aircraft is going, how it's operating and a massive list of other variable that make flying an aircraft in a flight simulator as enjoyable as it can be - you get to manage everything, regardless of how in-depth you want to get

Just Flight have brought us the 737 Professional, a fantastic add-on for Microsoft Flight Simulator X and a great addition to anyone's virtual hangar. This package features a remarkably detailed model of the advanced 737-200 variant introduced in 1971, showcasing the powerful JT-8D engines and utilizing true Pratt & Whitney JT-8D engine sounds. It also includes a fully flyable virtual cockpit, with 2D instrument panel, mouse-clickable operations and custom-coded Performance Data Computer System. In fact, all of the systems, from the engine start to the pressurization system, use custom-coded routines to overcome most of the limitations within FSX. Pair all that with authentic flight dynamics, and the 737 Professional becomes a completely unique flying experience.
Admire the models realistic highlights while fitted with one of ten liveries including Air France, British Airways and Canadian Airlines. All of which have a nice set of bump maps, so they have a great 3D feeling, improving your visuals with no extra strain on your computer. A layered paint kit is also included for those who want to create their own repaints and liveries to, perhaps share with the Flight Sim community.
A full range of lighting, with things like passenger window lighting and landing lights that illuminate the runway, combined with impressive custom reflection maps and night maps, make those long night flights through the darkness something to look forward to. Whilst airborne, you can see the hard work that has gone into some of the special effects like custom vortex trails from flaps.
A host of animations matching the level of quality one would expect from a Just Flight release, all come together nicely to help bring the aircraft to life, in a realistic and inviting atmosphere that will have you longing to take it back in the air. All flight surfaces are accounted for, and the amount of animations visible on the exterior of the plane will have you weighing up the decision to spend your time in the exterior view or in the virtual cockpit.
If your new to this type of aircraft you need not worry, because Just Flight have also supplied a comprehensive manual, incorporating a flight tutorial, to get you on your way to becoming a veteran pilot of the 727 Professional.

I went into this addon with extremely low exceptions with it being my first payware aircraft and not knowing what else was out there.
This is a good addon, but it is far from great. But for someone coming from default aircraft this is fantastic. You are not buying a PMDG or Majestic aircraft so you should expect a lower quality if that is what you are used to. There are a lot of things in this that are just not modeled BUT it is a still a lot more than a default aircraft. When I bought this I had just about no knowledge in it and it was a while until I actually managed to fly it. A word of warning to the inexperienced... This is an old aircraft so expect the systems inside to be from that time period. In my opinion older aircraft are much harder to fly so I would recommend having at least some knowledge in aircraft from that time period before buying or be prepared to read a REALLY long manual.
Concluding, I think this aircraft is great for people new to the flight sim community and those with a smaller budget. You can get much better aircraft (although not from this time period) but it is great to start on.

The plane is ok. But, the only problem I have with this plane is the lack of repaints.
