Hi there, 

I had a problem where certain aircraft were not showing correctly in VATSIM and AIG support has said it will be a vpilot issue. So this is what I have said to them below:

I will start off with the vatsim issue. I was at Zurich and there was a callsign BAW717T and he has filed as Aircraft type B748 but it was showing him as a 787 and there is an Air Canada who is showing as an A320 but he filed as a 777 ?? The VMR is perfectly fine and when i used the dot aircraft command in Vpilot it was using the VMR but aircraft are showing wrong which is very confusing especially when I have that airline installed on AIG (I don't use the traffic controller as I always fly on VATSIM)

So I am stuck at the moment with what is going on ?

The first thing to note is that it doesn't matter what the other pilot "filed as". The flight plan is not involved in model matching. This is because we have to be able to perform the model matching process even for aircraft that haven't filed a flight plan. Therefore, the important thing is what type of aircraft the user connected as. In other words, in your BAW717T example, they filed as a B748, but what did they choose as an aircraft type when they connected to the network? The .aircraft list should show this.

When I did that command and checked, Indeed it was B748 which was chosen,
