If I can put in my penny worth in. I really love the FPI software and enjoy flying on it, in fact I do all my JHB assignments there, I have got my nephew into it as well. Logging on is easy now I have got the hang of it, and it is not intrusive on the screen. I do try to log on at least twice a week around 20:00 and am too,disappointed at the lack of UK controllers and pilots (chicken and egg), even the FPI UK site is still half completed and half manned, still cannot get to the training sign up page, would love to be a controller (lousy pilot), but need to be hand held to get the procedures correct. Am also trying to get Vatsim up and running as it seems to be more going on there (is that where all the UK controllers and pilots are?, perhaps they do not know of FPI). My attempt of last night was a disaster, thank goodness for restore, as FS kept crashing out. The initial startup involved a lot of steps, and I must have done something wrong or the software did not like the updated FS9, will try it on FS8.

Maybe a new server will no the trick.
