FedEx VA as a replicated airline under Trans Australian Aviation Group

At TAAG, we have replicated the real world FEDEX schedules however, given the significant amount of flights flown daily, these are subject to change which may not be picked up on a timely basis. Please let the FEDEX Hub Director (Justin Thomas) know should you become aware of any changes not currently reflected in our flight database.

Furthermore, whilst we have replicated the real world schedules based, including currently assigned aircraft types, we are aware of the limitations of FS9/FSX and the aircraft that are currently available for virtual pilots to use. Plus, for online flying (which we highly recommend you try), virtual pilots may want to utilise payware aircraft that have fully modelled FMC’s such as the LevelD 767 and the PMDG 747 and MD-11. Therefore, as a guide, below are some suggested aircraft that can be substituted in place of realworld aircraft as replicated:

Cessna Caravan for any prop aircraft (C208, ATR)
757 for any 727, 757, A300
747 for any 777, DC10, MD11
767 for any A300, 727, 757, 777, MD11, DC10
777 for any 777, DC10, MD11

MD11 for any A300, 727, 757, 777, MD11, DC10

Please keep in mind that realworld aircraft scheduled for realworld routes are usually done based on range and runway length (amongst other factors).
