I've got an amazing PSS A320 in JMC colours and the equally good flight model of a DC-10 by FFG in JMC colours.I am unable to get ATC to give my the callsign 'J.M.C' though. Anyone have any ideas?Best Regards

I'm a total novice sir, I just put JMC in the 'airline' text file in the aircraft directory. I then selected it for the DC-10 ' JMC ' but ATC failed to use the callsign.Regards,

I'm not sure about this. Just an observation. In the winter months here (KMKE) there is a B757 operated by Apple VacationsRyan Air. It's in the same strange lime green paint scheme that appears on the JMC A330. The ATC call sign is Ryan.Could it be that JMC and Ryan Air are the same? FS2K supports "Ryan."Rick

JMC Airlines, part of JMC Holidays. JMC stands for John Mason Cook, son of the founder of the company (19th century).Whats weird is that I cannot find their real-life callsign. And FS2k2 sure doesn't include that one.__________________________________________________________EricUPDATED: List of all airlines, aircraft manufacturers and aircraft types recognised by ATC:http://www.geocities.com/eric_2203/orhttp://ftp.avsim.com/library/esearch.php?D...atID=fs2002misc

That tells you that they are not a major carrier. I've never heard of them.

I forget the wav file name but its alphanumericcal. Ther was no text line in the PHrase text file that is encoded intop the gvp file. Please no I was not trying to be snotty. Just that MS even said that emphasis is on the most popular aircrafts so it only makes sense that only the most popular airlines would be present.

You've got to spell it the MS way :) - there is an updated list in the Tips and Tricks pages link at the top of this page.

That's not quite true. They didn't forget to code it. Their Southwest wav file is used for other purposes ("N1234 is 3 miles southwest of xxxx, request flight following"). I guess somebody at Microsoft didn't realise it could be used for the airline of the same name as well. You can indeed copy the sound, rename it appropriately and add the "phrase" in order to have it for the airline name.__________________________________________________________EricUPDATED: List of all airlines, aircraft manufacturers and aircraft types recognised by ATC:http://www.geocities.com/eric_2203/orhttp://ftp.avsim.com/library/esearch.php?D...atID=fs2002misc
