If I’ve bought one add-on this year (2008) that has enhanced the cockpit experience more than anything else, my vote goes to Aerosoft’s Airport Enhancement Services (AES).

LEMD Madrid Services (Love the Toilet Truck)

We’ve all been to the airport and seen the flotilla of vehicles attending to all the requirements of an aircraft before it leaves. The Caterers, the Toilet Truck, the Cleaners, Baggage Handling, The Fuel Bowser etc.   Well Aerosoft bring all that to you in this neat little package.
Not only that but there’s the Pushback Tug which is going to put you exactly in position on the taxi line, uncouple and then a friendly little marshaller is going to send you off with a wave.

And, for arriving Traffic, you can request the ‘Follow Me’ Car to your designated Gate where, if there is no automated or signed Docking System, he is going to marshall you onto the stop position.
Everything is accompanied by Radio Messages from the Ground to the Cockpit of course.

Airport Gates without an Airbridge have the added feature of De-Boarding and Boarding via the Busses (both operations accompanied by Passenger Noise) and even the doors on the Busses open - how's that.

The 737-600 was launched by Scandinavian Airlines System in 1995 (EC-ING was actually leased to AIR EUROPA from SAS) , being most profitable for airlines focusing on long and thin routes. The 737-600 is the direct replacement of the 737-500 and competes with the A318/9. This is the only Boeing 737 still in production that does not include winglets.

Our Aircraft is powered by the CFM56-7 family, one of the most reliable jet engines ever produced with over 4400 in service on 2100 NG aircraft worldwide. At year end 2006, this engine series had accumulated almost 60 million flight hours over 29 million flight cycles - now that's flying :o)
And to get you thinking, a CFM56 powered aircraft takes off somewhere in the world every three seconds !!!

The CFM56 - Isn't it beautiful :o)

Built by CFM, a joint venture between SNECMA and the GENERAL ELECTRIC Co.

seatplan on our Boeing B737-600EC-ING is configured with 121 One Class Seats for either Economy or Charter work.  There are 4 main doors, two at the front of the cabin and two at the rear.  Green indicates normal cabin entry doors, blue indicates the service entry's and the red arrows are the two over-wing emergency exits.

SCENERY:  So you've 'kicked the tyres and lit the fires', so where do you fly from/to.  Here's some recommended free scenery you may like to check out for FS2004.

ISD  LIPZ - Very Nice Scenery

All these sceneries are 'frame rate friendly', graphically appealing and a good representation of the actual airport itself.
There are some very good free sceneries out there. I paticularly like the work done by the Italian ISD Guys, but they are not alone.
