Default Best solver for trans-sonic flow

mich_K is on a distinguished road
I am to model an airliner and would like to know what solver is recommended for the corresponding flight conditions.

I suppose that two important factors are compressibility, and I am only interested in a steady state answer, so if the solver uses local time-stepping for faster convergence, that will be an advantage.

Any thoughts?
