#523453 I've just posted version 2.1.13 of vPilot in the Beta channel. This version changes the Connect window so that the TypeCode is a "combo box", meaning it has a text box where you can type in your aircraft Type Code, or select it from a dropdown list. As you type, any matching codes are shown in the list so you can use the arrow keys to select one.

Also, if you enter a code that is not in the known code list, you will get a warning. This should help cut down on the number of invalid type codes we see on the network.

Again, 2.1.13 is currently in the Beta channel, so you'll only be prompted to upgrade if you have selected the Beta channel in your vPilot update settings.

oh Hallelujah! :D This weekend was particularly rough in the South West US for "poor code choices" :roll: . I hope the BETA goes well.
