But I do know that most of us are using the updated FSX-gold. That might be a question for someone who is smarter than I am. But wait a while. Someone will see this letter and reply to it for you. Enjoy the new addiction that you’ve just finally discovered. GRIN. Almost forgot, are you in the U.S.? Enjoy flying.

Is it an absolutely Must* that I buy Flight Simulator x? Or will I be able to get buy with Flight Simulator 2004 for flyin' and whatnot. ----- Original Message ----- From: Ron Kolesar To: bvipilots@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Wednesday, January 07, 2015 9:55 PM Subject: [bvipilots] Re: Making your own airline and flight number Hello to you Kevin, from Ron Kolesar and Leader Dog Boz. AKA the Blind Pilot. Once you pay for a unlock code you’ll be able to fly for the online virtual airlines and earn a virtual career via IYP airlines. But when flying offline do the following. Make sure FS 2004 is running and here’s hoping you’ll jump to fs ver 10 gold. Also know by fsx-gold and or by simply FSX. This package has three dvd’s. Two for the fsx gold and the third is for the excellerator. once that is installed. I’m using jaws for windows for my screen reader. If you’re running jaws. Route pc to jaws and find free flight button. Click on that button. Now fs should be blind friendly for you. Do a alt c to change aircraft. tab over to the list of birds. It doesn’t matter which bird you look at for this example. But down arrow through the list of birds and do a alt d on a bird. This will open the details page of that bird for you. the first thing you should see when this opens is the ATC registration number of that bird. If you tab over once to the right you’ll seeATC and the name of that bird. I have the Boeing 737-800 up for this example. You should see boeing since it is a boeing aircraft. But at this time you can down arrow through and you’ll see names of all kinds of airlines. This is how you can fly for a airline of your choice. Now tab over and you should see the flight number. You can also select any number you would like to use. Next, you’ll see apend to heavy. This is for 747-400 and larger birds. It isn’t for 737-800 and smaller birds. Then you will see show tail number. Not really sure what this will do but I always have it checked. Then tab over until you see the ok button and smack enter on that button. This will take you back to the list of birds. Tab over and smack enter one last time on the ok button and this wil take you back to the main menu. Now alt p will take you to the flight plan page. If you have a question or want to brag about something. You’ve found the right place. Let us know if you have a problem and we’ll do our best to help you out. Enjoy FS and IYP. Like our boss keeps telling us to do. Keep The Blue Side Up. Welcome aboard. Ron and current Leader Dog boz who states "that a service dog beats a cane paws down any day of the week."

I will definetly be buying it, as I am on the free trial at the moment. I'm a blind user, using Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004, and I was wondering if there was a way that you could make up your own airline and flight number for the flight that you're flying (I guess this would be your call sign, as I've heard this used before on air traffic control). For example, let's say I wanted to fly from Chicago to Houston (MDW to HOU), and I wanted ATC or my co-pilot to make announcements such as, "Welcome aboard Southwest 1326 to Houston", or perhaps ATC to say, "Southwest 1326, cleared for takeoff", Could I do this? I think this'd make flying really fun. I could probably think of a million more questions, but I'll leave it at this for now. Thank you, Robert and everyone helping you out for all you've done! It'sYourPlane has definetly made me want to fly in real life.
