Selecting aircraft?

Postby licondam » Mon Apr 01, 2019 1:57 am


I have just downloaded the new 757-200 file including the latest 300 version. When i start FG with the aircraft option screen open when i press the right arrow to cycle through all other 757-200 rolls royce, 757-200 pratt W, and 757-300 rolls royce i can only run the programme with the original 757-200RR selected, all other versions the "run button is greyed out? on further checking this is with all aircraft ie the 777ER is also greyed out to run the programme.

thanks for any help.

you have to click on the one you want to select... just seeing it on the screen doesn't select it...
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."
