You will be seen as a Cessna 'cos you picked it from the valid VATSIM list.

On the other hand if you created an SMS file for your Lionceau and added it
to the VIP aircraft.cfg file so it popped up in your SB listing then this
would be unique to you and everyone else would see the dart. If you sent the
SMS and repaint to other users they would see you as a Lionceau.

How does an aircraft qualify to become a red paper dart?
If, for instance, I'm flying my usual VFR session Lionceau APM20, which
isn't on the VATSIM list, but specify a Cessna that is on the list, will
I appear on everyone's screen as Cessna or Dart?
