What are the most popular aircraft for Flight Gear? It might make more sense to focus improvement and development efforts on these. What are the download statistics for these?

Commercial jets

Well, IDG is working on extremely advanced and realistic airliners almost full time. In order for realism to exist, this is what must be done. Scattering across many models will just end up with a bunch of basic to decent aircraft with nothing "good" or "excellent".

Kind Regards,

People develop and maintain aircraft for one reason - they're interested in that aircraft.

Why? For their own reason. I like spaceflight, so I focus on the Shuttle. If no one would download it, I'd still focus on it, because I want to fly it. Others like airliners, so they do airliners, yet others helicopters, so they do helicopters.

Making a high-quality aircraft is several hundred hours of work (at least) - people do this only out of passion for that aircraft. You can't simply focus that passion elsewhere.

Sorry, think I may have been misunderstood, I meant that it makes more sense for ME to try to improve these models! :lol:

Related thread here where I will continue.
