Ah ok, please let me know when you've fixed that, so I can update the pilot model in Git. Would it be nice if we can do it the upcoming release (else it will take 6 more months before most people will see the fix) ;-)

Any interest in an update for this aircraft - particularly the cockpit?

I will make a start on the animations then - for the instruments/controls in the cockpit. Even if it's only for the two of us 8)

Still a lot to be done but I think I have added enough animations for it to be flyable as a prototype. If anyone wants to try it out, it is available from here:

One workaround I found with an older user/system where the FG installation was upgraded to FG2018.3.5 is similar to what was encountered in this thread:

https://forum.flightgear.org/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=37641

Basically it was invisible to the launcher. If you get something similar, maybe try these command lines . . .

--fg-aircraft=path/to/the/folder/where/your/aircraft/is/located
--aircraft=1977_C-101EB

for example, this worked for me:
--fg-aircraft=/Users/myname/Documents/FlightGear/Aircraft/
--aircraft=1977_C-101EB

Yet the clean user I created to do the development of this doesn't have this problem. Maybe it's a MacOS thing?

Worked in 2020.2.1 on linux, but not in 2020.1.2 or 2018.3.4 on windows

I have a script to check for xml oddities - will run it over it later, might just be a bug in FG thats been fixed recently?

Even if it's only for the two of us


I just downloaded it (and figured out how to launch it). I like what you've done! I took it around the pattern a few times and did an ILS approach. Flies nice, although I think I need to recalibrate my joystick. Keep it up! Count me in - looking forward to where this goes.

Nice to know it's of interest - and even the nav side of it as well! I didn't mention this aspect because I didn't think many people would be using it. It only has one nav radio (NAV1). It's on the lower right hand side panel but not yet functional. I have been setting it via the FG Menu for now. Same for ADF. The central bar on the HSI (set by the KI252 course knob) is a bit cludgy. It only really works properly within about 20 degrees of the LOC. I'll try to do a better animation for that next. Maybe even do the radios.
