Hi all. Been flying flight sim for a long time. Really enjoy the work everybody does on all the neat aircrfat you all develop for us. Some of them are quite challenging to fly.I have a small odd problem. Looked around on the forumns, can't find anything on it. Tried all kinds of tricks but nothing seems to work. My "fleet" is several hundred aircraft. The other day, I downloaded a Cheyenne and the Montana Air Chieftan by Fred Choate.The Cheyenne shows up just fine. The Chieftian will not. Aircraft, Select Aircraft, Piper. No Chieftan. J-3 Cub is there, Cheyenee is there, Seneca V is there, but not Chieftan. Any idea why it won't show up? Checked spelling, placement, everything I can possibly think of. *.AIR file is present and spelled right. Model reference is correct. Tried every trick I could think of. Aircraft.CFG file looks like this.[fltsim.0]title=Piper PA-31 Chieftian Montana Airsim=Chieftianmodel=panel=sound=texture=kb_checklists=atc_id_color=0xffffffffffatc_id=I-MACui_manufacturer=Piperui_type="Chieftian"ui_variation="Montana Air Livery"[General]atc_type=Piperatc_model= Chieftaneditable=1And then the rest of the other flight stuff.Any ideas? Kind of stumped on this one.Also, the default Piper Cherokee 180 doesn't show up either. Everything else does.Thanks,Bill

Actually no.The aircraft.cfg is...[fltsim.0]title=Piper PA-31 Chieftian Montana Airsim=Chieftianmodel=...etc.and the air file is...Chieftan.airEither edit the aircraft.cfg to match the .air file or rename the .air file.Or use the patch I linked to, it does the latter.regards,Joe
