  1. Hey All.


    Just curious. I found the instructions field in the scenario editor. Based on the error it gives me "Line 1 must include a timestamp" and despite a lot of trying, I cannot figure out the format of said timestamp. I was wondering if anyone had any insight on this field and it's usage? Looks like it has the potential to do some really interesting stuff, but I cannot find any docomeentation on it





  2. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to get paid to fly for a corporate charter company??? Well now's your chance!


    Athena Air Services is not a traditional VA. We are a FSEconomy based group flying charter/cargo [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ignments throughout North America with a focus on Canada. We are based in Canada with operating bases in Toronto, Vancouver and Edmunston. We are honored to have just been accepted into VATSIMs VAA program.


    What is FSEconomy?

    FSEconomy is a multi-player "persistent world" add-on for flight simulators, with an economical focus. It is "persistent" because the aspects of the game - aircraft location and fuel levels, etc. - are controlled by the players. Other players see changes in these items within the "game world". FSEconomy works with FSX, P3D, XPlane and it is FREE! It is primarily centered on GA/BizJet/Regional operations vs tubeliners. Flying with us will require an FSEconomy account which can be obtained at the link below. (please read the "Getting Started" section).




    We have no time or activity requirements. We are trying to build a fun and active community of flyers so active flyers are preferred


    We like to fly on VATSIM and encourage everyone to do so. We encourage friendly, fun flying using FSE. We have a discord server. https://discord.gg/jY3Exhs . Please feel free to pop in and say HI!


    Our Current fleet is :


    Challenger 300




    Piper PA-31T2 Cheyenne IIXL

    C208 Caravan

    Cessna 207 Stationair 8

    Cessna 206

    Cessna 404

    Beech Baron 58


    And the fleet will grow with time, but remember, we have to buy these aircraft So as the group grows and the v$$$ rolls in, we can afford to expand our fleet


    We are based out of CYYZ and CYVR and we currently run an FBO out of CYES (Edmunston, NB) and we plan on adding more FBO's over time.


    If you want a friendly, fun group to fly for with a Canadian focus....either join in FSE, pop into Discord and we can help you get signed up or pop over to our website, we'd love to meet you!

    PS...Yes you do earn money!!! But sadly it is only virtual

  3. Thanks Lindsey...much appreciated




    Congratulations Phil. I'm happy to see some horizontality from different divisions, it enables varied perspectives and ideas. I know Europe has a very strong following, so this is very positive for both VatCan and North America.

    Which Pilot client are you using? If it is xsquawkbox I don't believe it supports towerview. I may well be wrong and hope someone can confirm, but I have never discovered anything indicating that xsquawkbox supports this.


    Perhaps swift might? I am unsure.

  5. Hey Guys!


    Hope everyone is well. I have ES running on my laptop and I control etc through that.


    I have P3D on my desktop. All my flying there. I have vPilot host/remote mode working beautifully. So my flights are fantastic.


    However, I would like to use towerview in vPilot on the desktop. And I am struggling to get it to work. Most of the time I just don't see anything or I get connection errors.


    Is there something I am missing? some parameters:


    1. I am connecting to VATSIM using ES on the Laptop and I have the proxy on.

    2. I have tried running vPilot with desktop running host and laptop running remote.


    Is this a possible configuration? Logically it makes sense to me but I am wondering what I am missing.


    Your thoughts are appreciated!



  6. Hey Guys


    My 2 cents. I don't think you need an overriding rule on this. There is already pretty decent guidelines out there.


    Ultimately, first come first served, squeeze them in when you can, if not, take 'em on a road trip
