MSFS is limited in the aircraft available, So that pilots with MSFS can fly many of our schedules, and until aircraft in the Buffalo fleet become available in the sim, the following are permitted substitutes. This list will be amended as other aircraft become available.

IMPORTANT: As smartCARS doesn't indicate which sim has been used, and to avoid any confusion for HUB manqagers when reviewing Pireps, pilots using a substitute aircraft in MSFS MUST add a comment to that effect in the pirep before submitting.

Savage Cub for the AC7

Cessna 172 for the C185

DA62 for the B55/58 (if member only has MSFS standard)

Bell 407 for the Bell 206

King Air 350 for the A90

Current Known Payware (7/1/22):
MilViz Cessna 310
Roland Laborie CL-215
Aerosoft DHC6-300 Twin Otter
PMDG DC-6 is available to pilots of Captain rank and above



BAV is aware of aircraft being ported from FSX to the new simulator.

Of particular concern to us is the M Jahn C-47, which has been (poorly) ported over without the developers permission, and with no reference to him.  In essence this is software piracy, and he has asked various hosting sites to remove the download of this version - this has been complied with by all except for a site called, where the download is still available.

Whilst we have no control over people downloading and using this aircraft, we will not countenance it's use on Buffalo AIrways Virtual operations. Any pirep filed using this aircraft will be rejected.
