Flight plan filed before connecting, or after?!


Recommended Posts

I'm just trying to get vPilot set up for FS2020 and I'm having trouble getting connected. It says it needs a flight plan "loaded" before it will connect me to the sim, but I read that I cannot load a flight plan until I'm connected. I seem to be stuck.

I think you may be confusing flight plan with flight. Make sure that the simulator is fully loaded and you are at the gate before you connect. Not at any of the menus.

It says you have to have a "flight" loaded... that is a little misleading as you don't really "load" a flight into the flight sim. What it means is that you have started the flight and are at the gate.

Just a small reminder... once you have connected, don't forget to take a peek outside the aircraft to make sure you haven't spawned on top of another aircraft already at the gate. If you have, just disconnect and move to another gate either by slew or relocate via the sim menu to start a new flight.

Hope that helps 🙂
