The USB drive I am using claims up to 480Mb/s. I've run quite a few programs
directly from it plus videos, music and huge AVI files - all with no
problem. I've not tried running FS2004 but it wouldn't be a true test
because the cfg files will still point to the original locations for scenery
and aircraft etc.

Looking at the Aria Web site:

USB drive, typically:-

Read 4.3 Mb/sec  : Write  900 Kb/sec.

Hard Drive (typical): Read/write : 300 Mb/sec

Based on the above figures, I would say NO.
