  • First, make sure that the base model (c46ga.zip) is installed on your system.
  • Find the Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator 9\Aircraft\GA C46 folder. Or the Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\GA C46 folder.
  • Unzip the texture folder (texture.capitol) contained in this file and copy it to the "GA C46" folder.
  • Using a text editor such as Wordpad copy the 20 lines below into the GA C46 folder's aircraft.cfg after the last listed aircraft.

title=C46A Capitol
atc_id_color = 0x00000000
atc_id_font = Verdana, -11, 1, 600, 0
ui_type=C-46A Commando
description = Curtiss C-46A\n\Capitol circa 1961\n\Repaint by Dave McQueen\n\nThanks to Tom Gibson and the team at California Classic for sharing this wonderful airplane with us.

Then do this:

Using the text editor change The first line of the section above so that the number 12 in [fltsim.12] is changed to a number one number higher than the one that precedes it in the aircraft.cfg file. For example in the Capitol section above if it was placed after the section that read [fltsim.7] in the first line, then the section above would need to be changed from [fltsim.12] to [fltsim.8].
