  1. Thanks for the link Chad, unfortunately no RAF callsigns listed! Oh well, guess I'll just have to log on as RRR or RAF and see where I get with ATC!
  2. Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone could enlighten me on the subject of callsigns. When connecting to VATSIM using SB3, as we all know, an aircraft callsign must be entered.

Controllers have often asked me to alter my plan while airbourne which completely confused me as all I've ever used are FS2002 plans uploaded to the GPS. Now, I have realised that this isn't such a big deal as using an FMC equipped A/c enables me to re plan in flight relatively easily. HOWEVER, on recently filing a plan constructed using FS2002 flight planner I was informed by ATC that it was no good and that FSNAV is a better way of route planning. OK, so planned a rou
