None of the jets I have imported into CFS2 are showing up. I downloaded the lear45 pack, but it only contained sound files. Can anyone tell me how to make them show up. All the prop aircraft I've imported work just fine. I'm new at all this flight sim stuff and have a limited understanding, so I could be doing something simple wrong. smiley

The Lear45 is a dummy "converter" folder for 3rd party aircraft & used for aliasing to. Install it to CFS2\AIRCRAFT in the same way as you would an aircraft. Then those jets aliased to the Lear45 sound should show on the menu. This is a quick & convenient way to check out jets posted without their own sound files. You can find & install more suitable sound for them later if you wish. Alternatively, you could replace the Sound folder of all problem jets with the one in the Lear45 folder.

I had a similar problem but I have fs 2k, and I imported all the guages and aircraft into cfs 2 and now everything I try shows up, although there is still the oddball that shows up now and then. My problem is with some attitude guages that tilt to the right when flying straight and level, and even though I make sure the batt/alt/gen switches are on, I loose power and can't use flaps or the landing gear -- so it is into the drink when that happens!

It should not be necessary to import all FS2000 default aircraft & gauges for jets to work in CFS2. You should bear in mind that CFS2 has no default jet & was not really intended for them. It's possible that some 3rd party aircraft (including jets) intended for FS98/FS2000 will not be fully compatible but I have yet to find one. It might depend on the type of jet you're using & I have not tried too many airliners or civil types. Most people use miltary jets in CFS2.

PS. Some 3rd party gauges designed for the earlier sims are not compatible with CFS2 & either don't display properly or will not function correctly. In this case, replace the gauge(s) or find a more suitable panel.
