Just be sure you check those results against an official source if you're wanting accuracy. That site, for a counterexample, would lead one to believe that "B77F" is a valid ICAO type code.

On the other hand, when setting up your model matching rules, it may not be a bad idea to include some common "goof" types, so that if someone on the network should happen to use one, your VPilot will still find a suitable model instead of displaying them as whatever your default is, or something wildly inappropriate for their intended aircraft type.

Cheers,

It sounds like the OP is looking for valid codes to use in the connect window, rather than model matching rules.

 

For the model matching rules, there is a file called SimilarAircraftTypes.txt which is where you would put invalid codes in order to have them match up with their correct code.
