Cessna C208
« on: September 07, 2018, 01:41:17 PM »
Now that the bot is gone, I'll ask my question. Didn't we have the subject airplane in our drop down list for flights? If not, don't you think it might be a good add? Thanks.

All the RTMM designated aircraft/repaints that appear on the RTMM pages:(Enhancement page or BWEP page), plus a few others, were added as MFC fleet from the onset but no C208. But a Cessna 208 Caravan kind of  should be in the bush fleet up here. (Carenade has now made their C208B compatible with FSX through P3Dv4x). Gimme a few minutes to get all it's specs and will get it defined in the fleet.(Once done will show as an aircraft in Cigar Box)

Thanks Norm. Don't mean to be greedy, but how about the Kodiak Quest too.

Sure will going forward will make it an option on the tours but you can use any aircraft in the fleet for any tour leg that you want as follows:

1) Selecting an aircraft from the tour when you sign on to the tour. If you want to fly that aircraft and select it for that tour it will be loaded in cigar box when you load each bid. 

or

2) You can also change it up as you want on any leg via Cigar Box - the Aircraft Information box.
a) load the leg
b) assign any different aircraft that is in the fleet - for any leg. (you can change it up for every leg if you want: As follows:

Load your flight. Click the scroll box in cigar box in the Aircraft Information section and you will see the various fleet aircraft. Select one that you want for that leg then LOAD and you'll see the Registration in the reg box and the aircraft ICAO change in Cigar Box to your selected aircraft.   Done. 

So in reality you can change it up on every leg of a tour if you want to.. or not and fly with the aircraft selected when you registered for the tour. All up to you.

So

D18 is Beechcraft Model 18 > ICAO BE18. In Cigar Box it is Reg# NB018MM - BE18 - BEECH 18.
This would include all of the Beech D18/E18/G18/H18 Series.

Ah! Thank ye!

Can't respond to comments in the PIREP, but my 208 has no spoilers, must be how Cigar Box sees flaps on it. Could use them sometime though.
