#510124 Hello,

I'm fairly new to ES and controlling in general. I was observing this afternoon and asked a controller where he could see the correct pronunciation for each airline. (i know most of them but some are new or fictional).
He said that some people put their callsign in their FP remarks, but some don't. If they haven't put their callsign in their FP, he said that the correct pronunciation will apear in the white line at the bottom of his screen.
When i clicked on several aircraft's tags, this would not show up for me.

Does this have anything to with possible incorrect settings in my EuroScope?

Would appreciate some help

Regards

#510138 For me, i go to Open SCT, click on all of the three Load ICAO Airline Data, Load ICAO Airport Data and Load ICAO aircraft data. Then you will want to go to Documents > EuroScope > DataFiles and load each one to its corresponding file.

#510152 I think I was that controller ;)

Andrew is right. It seems you're missing the ICAO data used to display this data. If you import these correct files, most should work.

What I do:
1. I know the most common callsigns by now
2. If I don't know the callsign, I check the ICAO data Euroscope shows me when I click on the tag
3. If Euroscope doesn't know the callsign, I check their flightplan. Sometimes they put it in their remarks if it's an unknown or different callsign
4. If that fails as well, I can look it up on the internet (small chance it's there, because the ICAO data should contain most of the callsigns the internet knows) or ask the airplane. Otherwise I could just spell it out.

The downside of the ICAO data is that it does not get updated. The TFL isn't ARKEFLY since mid-2015 I believe, it's ORANGE now. Almost all controllers outside EH.. that doesn't know this, use the old ARKEFLY, even if it's in your remarks.

I've loaded all SCT files matching my main sector file, and the callsigns still don't show up. I also tried loading different SCT files which didn't work.

Do this for each coresponding file. This is not your sector file, this is the TXT file containing the information.

Ok, thank you very much. I got an Airlines.txt file from another controller, it seems to be working now.

Cheers
