  • Use a text editor such as Notepad to add the following section to your DC-6B CB-17 aircraft.cfg file following the "fltsim" sections already present and replace the xx by the next number in sequence:

ui_type=DC-6B (motor CB-17)
ui_variation=SPANTAX (intercontinental)
description=The DC-6B was generally considered to possess the best operating economics of any piston airliner built. Passengers also appreciated their smooth, quiet ride. Pan American had 45 DC-6B's, and used them throughout their system.

  • Save and close the aircraft.cfg file.
