BAe 146-100 Flybe aircraft created by Andreas Much of The Avroliner Project. Andreas develops models for X-Plane 7 through 9 based on the very popular BAe 146 aircraft type. This download includes the Flybe livery to be used with Andreas' base BAe 146. Requires the BAe 146-100/RJ100 aircraft from The Avroliner Project. Andreas has done a very nice job creating the model and graphics. The special, included cockpit has good detail and a 3D version, although the 3D details are lacking comparable models available for Flight Simulator X. The aircraft includes moving parts, including moving gear and flaps, along with rotating jet turbines. Installation of this livery is very easy - unzip the download into the "liveries" folder within the aircraft's directory (create the "liveries" directory if it doesn't exist yet). Flybe Limited is a British airline based at Exeter International Airport, England. It operates over 180 routes between over 55 European airports. The airline's largest base is Southampton Airport and it has other large bases at Manchester Airport, Birmingham Airport and Belfast City Airport and a total of 14 aircraft and crew bases across the United Kingdom, the Channel Islands and Isle of Man. Flybe started operations on November 1, 1979 as Jersey European Airways (JEA), after taking over the operations of Intra Airways. Jersey European Airways was the brainchild of John Habin, a resident of Jersey and the majority investor in JEA. Having sold Aviation Beauport and other business interests, Habin established a few key routes from Jersey to the UK. Jersey European Airways was taken over in 1983 by Jack Walker's Walker Steel Group who were already the parent company of Blackpool based charter airline Spacegrand Aviation. The two airlines were run separately, with partially shared management, until their amalgamation within the Walker Aviation Group in 1985, under the Jersey European name. The airline rebranded as British European in June 2000, shortening this title to Flybe on July 18, 2002 and repositioning itself as a full service, low-fare airline. On November 3, 2006 it was announced that agreement in principle had been reached for Flybe to acquire BA Connect, with the exception of London City Airport services. The acquisition was completed in March 2007. The airline is owned by Rosedale Aviation Holdings (69%), Flybe staff (16%) and British Airways (15%) as a consequence of the acquisition of BA Connect. It has 3,000 employees at January 2008. A version of this aircraft is available for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 (9) here.
