Sorry if this has been covered, I didn't find it in a search.Ok, so - anyway, that's how it's spelled on the standard VFR 172 panel.That is all.
Actually, its spelled correctly. The FSX C172 is equipped with small Mangos called Mangetos (spanish for small mango) that are installed inside a special compartment in the right wing. The Mangetos are actually provided through a third party contract with the Chiquita Corporation and can provide the pilot or passenger a refreshing snack while in flight. Furthermore, due to their smaller size they save precious weight as opposed to having full sized Mangos installed. It is an expensive option on most modern 172s but if you can afford to have Mangetos installed they are a real life saver when you're in a lengthy holding pattern and you get hungry.

Gosh, the last time I saw someone handling the Mangetos was with Commander Geordie La Forge. He did a hell of a job there!

The closest I can get for a translation is for the word "mangeto" which is Esperanto for "small meal" or "snack". So I guess your pseudo-Spanish translation is close enough.

Correct. The Esparanto Air Force flew C172s equipped with Mangetos during WW II. Many an Esparanto airman's life was saved when they were shot down by the Luftwaffe and they were able to survive on the very nutritious Mangetos for weeks until they were rescued by Allied forces.
