The short answer is yes you can. However, since ProFlight is based on adventures, you will not see AI aircraft. If you can live with this and the other quirks inherent in adventures, then check out this link for instructions on how to make Proflight 2000 work:http://www.microwings.com/ti/topic.asp?for...,49772#mid49772Also, there is a batch file to simplify the transfer of files to the appropriate folders in FS2002. You can find the batch code here:http://www.microwings.com/ti/topic.asp?for...887,49890,49891Hope this helps,Bruce

I have PF2000 as well, and enjoyed it for a while back in FS2000 days... I've been tempted to go through the motions to get it to work with 2002, but I am really tired of the limitations of the Adventure-based world that it lives in. I have a lot of hope for the upcoming Radar Contact v3, which will hopefully be out by the end of the year. I got a demo of it as a work in progress at the Avsim conference on Saturday, and the cool thing about it is that it is a completely separate program from FS, communicating with the sim via FSUIPC. (As such, it could be run on another networked PC, although the programmer said he has not seen any slowdowns attributable to RC3.) It "knows" about the AI traffic, and will vector you around it (although it cannot control or vector the other traffic due to FS limitations).Another thing I like is that you can save your flight at any time and come back to it later. The basic advantage of this is obvious but for me (an instrument student) it is great since I can save out a specific approach and then practice it repeatedly without having to re-fly the entire flight up to that point.Yet another thing - the way RC3 is crafted, you can fly just about any approach in existence. It doesn't "know" about any given approach - you have to program the waypoints into your flight plan - but it will vector you such that you can practice most any type - not just ILS but VOR, NDB, RNAV, etc.I am going to reserve final "review judgement" on RC3 until I can actually go through an entire flight myself, but what I saw inclines me to continue to wait for its release rather than try to hook up the electrodes to PF2000 and try to resurrect it.There is a forum here at Avsim on RC, and specifically a thread on how version 3 is shaping up: http://ftp.avsim.com/cgi-bin/dcforum/dcboa...rum=DCForumID31although that thread hasn't been updated in a while.cheers,Dave BlevinsKRHV
