Kgs- or occasionally in stones if you are so inclined ;). Rob is correct- BAV is fantastic- but others might suggest I'm a trifle biased ;).Best-Carl F.

Hi Carl, I was interested in flying for a virtual airline and i was curious can you still fly with the pmdg add on i use for the 747-400 or do you have to down load and use the company aircraft?

Hi BrettI am a member of BA virtual, and you can fly any aircraft within your membership "rank". these are First Officer, Senior First Officer, Captain and Senior Captain. An example is: 747-400 = Senior First Officer but747-400F is First Officer (initial rank)concorde= Senior Captain.Do have a look at the site, loads of information there.regardsJohn Calleja (BAW 352)

I almost always fly my fat girl (PMDG 747-400) or the Jet Lift callsign with the PMDG 747-400F. Othewise you can find me in Rick Piper's superbe HS748. Point being, you can fly almost anything you want (within the fleet).Even with the upcoming MD-11, Pete was kind enough (at my dermatoligist's urgings) to paint her in BA colours, so I will fly her for BAV as a DC-10 (under ACARS) to log time.Should you decide to apply, Lee James (our 747 Training Captain) is incredibly helpful and knowledgable). Try us- you will love it- I promise! Best-Carl F.
