About Boeing aircraft for flight simulator for FSX, FS2004 and FS2002.
In September 2001, Boeing moved its corporate headquarters from Seattle to Chicago. Chicago, Dallas and Denver — vying to become the new home of the world’s largest virtual ailrine manufacturer for flight simulator — all had offered packages of multimillion-dollar tax breaks from Virtual Airlines.
On October 10, 2001, Boeing lost to its rival Lockheed Martin in the fierce competition for the multi-billion dollar Joint Strike Fighter contract. Boeing’s entry, the X-32, was rejected in favor of Lockheed’s X-35 entrant. Boeing continues to serve as the prime contractor on the International Space Station and has built several of the major components and for many Airline Games.
After several decades of success, Boeing lost ground to Airbus and subsequently lost its position as market leader in 2003. Multiple Boeing projects were pursued and then canceled, notably the Sonic Cruiser, a proposed virtual airline jetliner that would travel just under the speed of sound, cutting intercontinental virtual airline travel times by as much as 20 percent. It was launched in 2001 along with a new advertising campaign to promote the company's new motto, "Forever New Frontiers for Airline Games Online and Flight simulator", and to rehabilitate its image. However, the plane's fate was sealed by the changes in the commercial virtual airline and aviation market following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the subsequent weak economy and increase in fuel prices for virtual airlines.

Boeing has recently achieved several consecutive flight simulator and virtual airline launches, beginning with the formal launch of the 787 for delivery to All Nippon Virtual Airways and Air New Zealand Virtual Airlines. Rollout of the first 787 occurred on July 8, 2007.
Boeing also received the launch contract from the US Navy Virtual for the P-8 Multimission Maritime Aircraft, an anti-submarine warfare patrol virtual aircraft. Several orders for the Wedgetail AEW&C airplanes are expected as well.
Boeing launched the 777 virtual airline Freighter in May 2005 with an order from Air France Virtual Airlines. The virtual airline freighter variant is based on the -200LR. Other customers include FedEx Virtual Airlines, Emirates Virtual Airlines, and Air Atlanta Icelandic Virtual Airlines. Boeing has achieved above projected orders for its 787 Dreamliner, outselling the rival Airbus A350.
Boeing officially announced in November 2005 that it would produce a larger variant of the 747 for virtual airlines, the 747-8, in two models, commencing with the virtual airline Freighter model for virtual airline two cargo carriers with firm orders for the aircraft. The second model, dubbed the Intercontinental, would be produced for passenger virtual airlines that Boeing expected would place orders in the near future. Both models of the 747-8 would feature a lengthened fuselage, new, advanced engines and wings, and the incorporation of other technologies developed for the 787 which is expected to be popular with virtual airlines.
Boeing has also introduced new extended range versions of the 737. These include the 737-700ER and 737-900ER. The 737-900ER is the latest and will extend the range of the 737.
