How to use your Janet 737-600 for the Area 51 "Secret Shuttle" mission

Recommended Posts

The original topic was moved to the video forum, so I'm reposting the info required for making the plane load with the mission:Go to your FSX root folder/missions/pilot for hire/secretshuttle, then make a backup of the SecretShuttle.FLT file in case you need it.Then open the file with note pad or other text editor, scroll about 3/4 of the way down to a section called [sim.0], in that section change the entry after "sim=" to the title of the plane you want as it appears in the "title" section of the plane's aircraft.cfg., ( For the PMDG Janet repaint it would read "Sim=Boeing 737-66nngx Janet Airlines (URS Federal Services)" (without quotations.) save the file and you should be good to fly.However, the Area 51 flights are very top secret and the waypoints and airport are not listed in the Navdata, so Barfra1995 made the effort to edit the information into the navdata, making it possible to program the route into the FMC. I will repost his edits below (thank you again, barfra1995!). Please note that formatting has to be correct for the data to show up in the FMC. I found that out the hard way.The Navdata folder is located in the PMDG folder inside your FSX installation. Backup your original files in another location. The names of the individual files to be edited are in bold. airports.datAR51 37.247350-115.814169wpnavapt.txtAREA 51 AR5112 05500123 37.234366-115.810737000.0012304451AREA 51 AR5130 05500303 37.219020-115.794020000.0030304451AREA 51 AR5114R11960143 37.265334-115.816760000.0014304451AREA 51 AR5132L11963323 37.219584-115.792615000.0032304451AREA 51 AR5114L23000143 37.248162-115.800233000.0014304451AREA 51 AR5132R23000323 37.217848-115.784245000.0032304451wpnavfix.txtPYD PYD 37.065666-115.733000wpnavaid.txtMERCURY MCY NDB 36.627461-116.027529326.00NI hope you enjoy it as much as I have, and keep your eyes open for those "fast movers"!

You're welcome, Chris. Always glad to help happy.png BTW, you PM'd me the other day asking if I could add waypoints for flights to AR51 from other airfields listed in that website, didn't you? I completely forgot about that. Sorry. I'll take a look at them as soon as I sort out this issue I'm having with the 6700 Expansion Pack.


Cheers!

Wo thanks, really cool. I do have a question though:What is the route you would put in to the FMC?

A good landing is one you walk away from, a great landing is one when you can re-use the equipment!

KLAS - MCY - PYD (Pyramid waypoint) - AR51. That's all. If you're going to fly the Secret Shuttle misson, then you'd insert this route, selecting runway 1L for takeoff from McCarran Int'l and visual for runway 32 (don't remember if it's R or L) for arrival at Area 51.


Cheers!

Thank you! Just did my first shuttle flight from LAS to Groom. Great for those times when you don't have time for a long flight.

On the (probably very) remote chance there's a real Janet driver reading this thread - I would looooove if you sent us an options ini for these planes...
