Thread: B787 Dreamliner

  1. Default B787 Dreamliner

    Hello

    When using the radio and asking for Class D airspace transition, how does one get the aircraft type "B787 Dreamliner" included in the transmission. All I get is aircraft type "Boeing" ?
    I am guessing the I have to place some sort of line/reference in the aircraft.cfg file ?

    In your aircraft.cfg what do you have under [General]? That will be the first thing to look at.

    Yes: look at the [GENERAL] section, there should be a line for atc_model=. It should say B787.

    Now; when FS9 was released, the 787 wasn't even an idea (the project was called 7E7 back then). Maybe you have to add this model via EditVoicepack.

    I just did a quick download of a FS2004 787-9 and the [General] section looks like this

    [General]
    atc_type=BOEING
    atc_model=B787

    I'm fairly sure that ATC, even with EditVoicepack installed, will give you just Boeing. I would try something like:

    [General]
    atc_type=BOEING
    atc_model=B789 or 7E7

    What 787 are you using? Is it freeware? link or file name?

    I'll give it a try tomorrow morning. I'm starting to think that a 787 is new enough that FS2004 and even FSX may fail to recognize it.

    There's an EditVoicePack callsign for the 787 by Lars Moellebjerg over at AVSIM, but I'm not sure that it will recognise the "atc_model=B787" entry in the aircraft.cfg.
