Don't know what caused that.  Updated my settings and re-uploaded my signature image thingy.  Should be fixed.

 

Are you ready for another NGX tutorial yet?  I will not be satisfied till we get you through a CAT III approach and autoland.  It can be done:smile:

Er..because it is. I only do real aircraft. Google it.

Unless that is a self deprecating joke. I'm not used to hearing that kind of thing from non Englishmen. :biggrin:

Hi Ron,

I just looked it up "M" actually belongs to the Isle of Man - home of the greatest show on earth...

Portugal = "CR" or "CS"...

I think that was what Marques was referring to...

Regards,
Scott

Ahah! Silly old me. How on Earth did I come up with Portugal? Maybe it was a photo of it in Portugal and I got the wrong end of the stick. :blush:

During my research of it (now looking a tad wanting) I did wonder what game they were playing. :rolleyes:

My sincere apologies to Marques and to the rest of the flight simming community.

Don't need to apologize my friend :) i google it just for curiosity, and there are a big relationship between the PC12 and Portugal.

First, the registration that you have there i also found one photo of it in Portugal(LPFR) here :)...

And... According to this article on a Brazilizan site, some parts of the PC12 are made in Portugal, namely the wings and the fuselage, it seems that Embraer works with a well know company in Portugal called OGMA

So your post only enriched my until now poor knowledge about the PC12, so thank you ;)
