For additional information please read the "BC Coastal Beaver Repaints.pdf" document included with this package.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Introduction
de Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver MK. I
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Produced from 1948 to 1967, the Beaver is widely regarded as one of the top bush planes ever produced. Still used by many of the smaller BC airline operators, this aircraft is such a common sight here on the coast that I sometimes think that BC stands for Beaver Country instead of British
Columbia. This collection of repaints contains eleven real world Beavers that are still on the job, flying the BC coast.

Please be warned that the information about the aircraft included in this package, as well as the airlines that fly them is subject to change! Beaver aircraft are constantly being bought/sold, repainted and sometimes (unfortunately) destroyed. The airlines that operate them are generally quite
small and have a nasty habit of going out of business or being taken over and/or merged with a competitor. The information presented here is current, to the best of my knowledge, as of January 29, 2011.

Be aware also that the Beaver can have many modifications performed on it and it seems like no two are exactly alike. If an airline has more than one Beaver in its fleet, I tried to pick the one that matched the default FSX Beaver as closely as possible. Unfortunately, such as the real world
Beaver C-FDSG from Pacific Coastal Airlines (which has amphibious floats), I couldn't always find the perfect match. With the default FSX Beaver it is a case of one size fits all.

Regards, Mike Mann

1. After unzipping the BCCoastalBeavers.zip file, copy the eleven folders found in the Repaints folder to the default FSX Beaver folder:

\\Program Files\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\DeHavilland_Beaver_DHC2

2. Open the aircraft.cfg file of the FSX de Havilland Canada DHC-2 Beaver (found in the above mentioned folder of FSX) with Windows Notepad.

3. Copy the information below "Copy everything after this line:" and paste into the aircraft.cfg file after the last numbered entry.

4. Change the XX in each [fltsim.XX] section with the next number in the sequence.

5. Save the aircraft.cfg file after the changes in step 4 are made.

6. Start FSX and on the Select Aircraft page tick the Show all variations box.

7. Select the Beaver you want to fly and go for a flight; water runways/docks highly recommended!!
