Hi,What would you want to do that for?In real life airlines and aircraft types have their own specific callsigns.Edit voicepack is one of those programs that can update callsigns. But you can also add your own text if you want to.Using that program and editing all aircraft.cfg's you could indeed change plane types. Pardon me for saying but you could you be a little bit more specific as to the reason for doing it as I don't see any sense in it.Roby

I think what DarkKnight means is changing the a/c names in the plane selection menu ?If so, then all you need to do is change each a/c's entry in the aircraft.cfg;eg the default Boeing 747 aircraft.cfg you have ui_manufacturer=Boeing - change that to ui_manufacturer=Big PlaneYou would probably also have to go thru and edit each of the title= as well, since these have to be unique, and would be the only way to identify each aircraft model/mfr/paint.But, I agree with Roby - why would you want to do that? I would have thought a very timeconsuming excercise with no perceived benefit. But each to their own, I guess.Hope that helps,Leo Godalming UKhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/supporter.jpgMSI P6N PlatinumXFX GeForce 512MB 8800 GTSQuad Core E6600 @2.4GHz3GB Corsair PC2-6400WD 250GB for Flight SimHitachi Deskstar 500GB - Dedicated FSXP, Regular XP and Vista

To speed up the process, if you choose to do it, you can open the aircraft.cfg file with Notepad and hit ctrl+H which will open the find and replace dialog box. You can then replace all ui_manufacturer=Boeing with ui_manufacturer=Big Plane.To change all 3 default Boeings should take about 2 minutes.
