Default Cessna 172 N3608L Repaint. A repaint of the FSX default Cessna 172 based on a real-world aircraft out of KGIF in Florida. By George V. Trovato.

INFORMATION:
------------
This is a repaint based on a real-world aircraft that I had the pleasure to fly in on 11/21/09.

INSTALLATION:
-------------
Copy the "texture.N3608L" folder into your "\SimObjects\Airplanes\C172" folder.

To activate this aircraft in FSX, you will need to copy the fltsim.XX section below into the aircraft.cfg file found in the folder listed above, as the next aircraft entry. Remember to change the XX (from the fltsim.XX section below) to the next number in sequence, based on the highest numbered aircraft entry that already exists in your aircraft.cfg file.

For example, if the last aircraft entry in your aircraft.cfg is [fltsim.39], the XX for the [fltsim.XX] section below would need to be replaced with 40 so that it would read [fltsim.40].

TO ACTIVATE THIS PAINT:
--------------------------------------------
Browse to your 'C172' folder (found in "\SimObjects\Airplanes\C172") and edit your aircraft.cfg file, using a text editor such as Notepad (Do NOT use Wordpad).

description="A stable and trustworthy plane, most pilots have logged at least a few hours in a Cessna 172, since it's the most widely available aircraft in the rental fleet, and is used by most flight schools. Since the first prototype was completed in 1955, more than 35,000 C172s have been produced, making it the world's most popular single-engine plane. One of Cessna's first tricycle-gear airplanes, the 172 quickly became the favorite of a growing class of business pilots. Its reliability and easy handling (along with thoughtful engineering and structural updates) have ensured its continued popularity for decades."

Does anyone know how I can change the call sign on this plane so it changes the N3608L on the plane?
