A Good Aircraft.cfg file for learjet
Does anyone know of any good aircraft.cfg file for default Learjet 45 in FS2004. I´m interested in more accurate flightdynamics and improved autopilot performance, and yes "overall performance".
Any help on this topic is appreciated!!

The best person to contact abou that is Mr. Tomlin over at www.flightlevel180.org. He is the man when it comes to Learjet and FS9.
I can assure once you switch over to FSX you will be more please with the over all looks and characteristics, no configuration needed.

Yes I have flown the FSX Lear and I agree with you. The original version is ok.
We will eventually use FSX when hardware catches up. I got a tip from a friend of mine about an aircraft tweak program called AirWrench. It´s said to be good. I bought it earlier today and I´m waiting for my key. I will try to make a decent Lear for FS9 with it.

Very interesting. Please give an update after you have messed with it for awhile I would like to know what you think of the program and if it gives you the changes you are after. Thanks for the linkMike G.

Some examples: there's almost no increased drag at all in the default lear when flaps are extended and landing gear is down.....this is not so realistic I guess. The speed hardly decrease even when I fly with flaps set to 40 and gear down. This is easily adjusted in Airwrench. Another annoying thing in the default lear is that when flaps are extended there is no nose pitch down at all. Not realistic! Compare it with PMDG 737NG for exemple...I have countless of hours in this airplane and its a joy every time flaps are extended and this is followed by a smooth shift of the nose downwards + increased drag.
Another example is what happens when using spoilers in the default lear...which creates "half a loop" with a very sudden and high nose pitch. With airwrench I adjusted it so now when spoilers are extended there is a slight nose pitch and also a soft reduction of altitude.
And so on.......
I´m still working on getting a decent AOA at low speed during final approach, I think it's to high in the default lear.
When using airwrench you also learn a lot about aerodynamics just by looking at the different systems within the program. By looking at the sliders for spoiler you also realize which effect/forces spoilers have on the aircraft.
So although I´m no expert in the field of aerodynamics I can recommend this program to you all.
Any comments or suggestions is appreciated!!

I too was not aware of AIRWRENCH, I downloaded the demo. Quite interesting, will have to put it to the test
