Have you noticed something?

Hi everyone! Have you guys realized many people don’t fly the C-130 as much as in the past?

I still see people flying it but I think some of the hype has died down.

This happens with every plane.

Not with the 787. You see how many 787s are?

Not with the 787. Military aircraft aren’t that popular in IF.

@Mobin_A That’s debatable. If we’re comparing to when it first came out then its usage has dropped dramatically.

I didn’t ask for a C130 so I’m not going to use it as much as I would a fighter. The C130 is way too slow for me.

When the update first came out, literally everyone was flying the 787. Now it’s at a normal rate of use. It’s major hype expired, much like the C-130 and all other aircraft as @Chad_Garnett said.

The C-130 wasn’t really hyped by the community as much as the 787.

I won’t be able to say anything as I was not a part of the community when the 787 update came out… And I’ve seen more people flying the 787 compared to the C130… When I’m ATC and also when I fly!

A ton of people prefer commercial aircraft over military

It flies bad, and it simply doesnt feel like your everyday aircraft.

When I saw the title to this post, the first thought that went through my head was “No?”

Papa Albert is a plane you fly on occasions. I fly it if ATC is at smaller airport with cargo ramps or LAX’s USCG ramp. But I don’t fly it all the time. But it’s a plane that has opening doors and I like that.

What about the C-17? When did that come out?

It’s been out for a while. It was there when I initially bought the app I think.

Oh. I guess it’s been for a long time

Haven’t seen anyone flying one for ages , to be honest there where so many different aircraft that FDS could of made that might of had more of a “appeal” in the long run…

I would of rather seen a DC10 , MD11 or even a A350 first.

I still seen people fly C-17 occasionally.

Yeah it’s really old hence the moving parts not being animated
