I'll check it out and see if this is a problem.

PS, how many characters in CAX6 :)

Four. thanks Dave.. Most of the U.S. Seaplane bases are 3 Characters. Another thing, how do i get someone to register in Ground and someone in Tower and someone in Approach at the same Airport?

W33 = Friday harbour.. Add a space to the end to make it four characters and it will find it.

ie. 'W33 '.

However, it's still not recognised as 4 characters long even though it's recognised...

I'm sure I managed it one time, but can't remember how...

Tinkering....

OK, this is a bit messy:

Type: W33[SPACE][DEL][ALT+255]

Will list the ICAO, but not 'Friday Harbour'...

Not in FSX that I know of. You can PM them in FlightStrips if you/they are logged in. TeamSpeak is another option.

I still cannot file a flight plan with an icao of 3 characters, and flight strips will not allow it either. This is a big problem for my server as i am based out of B.C. and most of my main waterdomes have 3 character icao's

Any three letter code in the USA can be changed to a 4 letter ICAO code by adding 'K' to the front. Example a Local airport near me and one I used for my IRA check ride is 48A in order to file with DUATS you must add the K to make it K48A.

If that doesn't work you can try KFBS or FBS for the IATA code.

I try what you suggested Dakoda and that did not work. :(

any other thought..

I am flying from Friday Harbour Seaplane Base W33
i know that if i do a !fp it will take but i want pilot assistant and flight strips to accept it too. And of right now it does not.
