I have just downloaded the SAAB 340 SPA and carefuilly followed the "Read Me" instructions withiout success.
All th files show up in the Main FSX folder as per the instructions but there is no SAAB 340 in the FSX Aircraft folder for instatnce.
Any suggestions please?

Yep...well the instructions are a bit off, probably for fs2009 rather than fsx. Im not at my computer right now but the file structure for fsx is a bit different, so put the 340 folder into the simobjects/airplanes folder and it should work. The ground sound is another change, but it will wok too when the files are in the right place.

Now, if anyone can tell me how to make it stop dropping like a rock during final when I try to get down to landing speed, I'll be happy. Seems like the best I can do is follow ILS glide slope at about 160 with full flaps and drastically reduce power the last few hundred feet when I take manual control. It loses speed fast and sets down nicely on the runway. Otherwise it drops from the glide slope very early in the approach and I have to take it in manually much earlier than I should - and I thought the King Air was bad!

l`ve downloaded the saab 340 for fs9, and i haven`t had any problem. the only difference l find
from spa saab and other fs9 saab is, the spa saab goes twice as far with the same amount of fuel.
I`II download the fsx and let you know.

Where can I find the peformance data to enter into FSCommander for the saab 340?

Silly me. All the data is already included in the generic aircraft of FS Commander.

Ok..I think I figured out my problem(s) as well. After thinking a bit about the similar performance problems I had with the King Air and the Saab, it dawned on me that it sounded more like a system problem (FSX), not an individual aircraft problem. After doing a repair install from my FSX disks (and the acceleration repair - otherwise it got fatal errors if I didn't repair both), I find that all aircraft are performing much better - and as they should. This means that the airspeeds are what they should be during flight without loss of performance.

Prior to correcting this issue, anytime I dropped below 160 knots the king air and the saab wanted to fall out of the sky. No stalling, just lost altitude like a rock while maintaining whatever speed I set below 160 with a very high nose up angle.

What a strange problem! Now I get to relearn to fly using correct approach and landing speeds all over again.
