I will answer the questions that I can.

1. No.

2. No, But it would be nice if you did.

4. No.

5. FDX does not fly EGLL non stop to KMEM. The only non stop from Europe that I am aware is from LFPG.

 

Add a couple of more liveries like Aerologic, Southern Air, and Lufthansa (GEC). That will open up a lot more routes with the 777F.

If you have airport charts you can see where freighter should park and thus you can park in the right place, do you have to=No but you will look daft at a gate.

Use flightaware.com to look at all B77L flights, the -200LR and the /F share the same designation, and you'll see the FDX flights.  As pointed out, there are direct KMEMLFPG and also EDDK along with several Asian destinations.

4. GSX can disembark cargo via the regular deboarding function (I've tried on the 77F). However, you will still have the sound effects of disembarking passengers when you are in the VC, so it isn't entirely realistic.

Problem with flightaware is that it will often not give you the routing from Europe to North America. You can either go to http://www.edi-gla.co.uk/fpl/login.php?go=/fpl/index.php and see whether they hava real-world recently flown route that would suit you, or you could do the routing yourself using something like PFPX. Thta program is so great you might come up with a better routing than a real dispatcher!

Hi,

 

The GSX folks have rumored for some time now to bring a cargo specific version out but as yet nothing has transpired. I would check out the GSX Forum and see if there are any updates on this.

You can remove the sounds of passengers in the vc. Use the options menu.

Air Hauler is a nice software. But I would wait for a moment because Air Hauler 2 is under development/beta testing right now. It will bring more fun into flying cargo.
