  1. Under the section in the aircraft.cfg [General] atc_type=BOEING atc_model=B772 This works for me. Regards Matt Williams
  2. Very sad to hear this news. I spent many hours flying his boeing 767. It was my introduction to flying a complex aircraft all those years ago. My sincerest condolences to his family and friends, and thank you to Eric for your contribution to our wonderful hobby, and for sparking my interest in flying. Regards Matt Williams
  3. I for one appreciate the wonderful work that Garry Lewis, Juergen Baumbusch, Philippe Tabatchnik, Johan Clausen and Kyle Meeks give to us freely. It enhances our hobby, gives us a fantastic sense of emersion and makes such a difference to our flight sim world. Regards Matt Williams
  4. I had almost exactly the same experience as the guy in the video about two years ago. Having flight simulation as my main hobby since my early twenties (I'm now in my mid fifties) my kids bought me an introductory flight lesson for my birthday. With thousands of hours sim experience I had never flown a real aircraft before. I did my 30 minute introductory flight and was absolutely blown away. Loved every second of it. Instructor let me take off and we flew a circuit. I kept glancing to my right to check the instructor and his hands were in his lap, I was flying! I was amazed at how familiar everything was and kept having to pinch myself "you're doing this for real". Definitely the biggest difference is the forces you experience at the controls. The bumps and turbulence etc. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Like the video as well the instructor let me line it up for final, told me to keep that picture of the runway/threshold in my head and in we came. To be honest I had my hand on the stick and my eyes glued to that threshold the whole way down so I never glanced across to see if he hand his hands on the controls but we did a nice landing and he commented afterwards that my flight simulation had served me well. I think he was impressed. Sadly I haven't had the chance to go again.
  5. They have updated the schedules just recently. You can update the models. They are yet to introduce Powerpack which enables flightplans to be imported, but are planning to do so in future releases. Regards Matt Williams
  6. Very sad news, condolences to Tom's family and friends. Regards Matt Williams
