Thanks for the update. I guess we can also use the Aerosoft update tool which came with the CRJ. I think it's in one of the folders that is installed with the aircraft and is likely the easiest way to update.

Edit: Just checked the Aerosoft forums and can't find the patch notes. Any idea where they are?

No you can't use the updater, you need to download the new version.

Thanks for the info.

It mentions about PA and FD announcements for low cost carriers such as "no coffee" etc. Maybe a stupid question but how do you get any of these PA/FD announcements to play during a flight. I have only ever heard the 'please remain seated' after landing announcement. I have flight attendent announcements turned on in the options but never heard any of these in flight announcements.

Is there something I must press or do to trigger these during a flight?

Hi All.

Do you have to uninstall previous version or can you install the new version over it.

Thanks in advance.

I haven‘t yet found out when/why exactly all the announcements are triggered. I think you get the drinks and snacks announcement when climbing through 14.000ft. It‘d be great if we could select them manually. It would reduce the stress level of my passengers immensely as they wouldn‘t have to hear „the captain has aborted the landing“ that often😅.

Interesting, I have never once heard such an announcement triggered when climbing (or indeed at any other point). Would be great if others could weigh in on their experience with this feature.

I‘ve heard that on every flight. Weird.
