Looking up aircraft IDs
The first time you enter a flight in a particular aircraft, the system will ask you for more information on that aircraft, such as category, class, number of engines, and so on.
Whenever you subsequently enter a flight in that same aircraft, the system will show you the aircraft attributes so you'll know whether you're entering turbine time, complex time, rotorcraft time, etc.
To see which aircraft you've defined, you can look at the aircraft list on the Aircraft menu from the top menu bar. However, when entering flights, it's easy to find previously defined aircraft without leaving the flight entry screen:
- You can view recently used aircraft by clicking the arrow next to the Aircraft ID field to pull up the drop-down.
- You can view defined aircraft of a particular model or ICAO code by typing the code followed by two slashes into the Aircraft ID field. For example, to find your Cessna 172 aircraft, you can type C172// into the Aircraft ID field.
- To find your defined rotorcraft, enter RTR// into the Aircraft ID field.
- To find your complex aircraft, enter COMPLEX// into the Aircraft ID field.
- To find your turbine aircraft, enter TURBINE// into the Aircraft ID field.
- To find your piston aircraft, enter PISTON// into the Aircraft ID field.
- To find your warbirds, enter WARBIRD// into the Aircraft ID field.
