Adding your own Aircraft
 

This is where you can add your own aircraft into the Neofly database.

NF Settings adding aircraft.png

Name:  This name must be the same as the MSFS name for the aircraft.

Type: The engine type, see below.

Engines: The number of engines.

Qualification: The qualification required to fly this aircraft.

Range: Maximum range in nautical miles.

Payload: Maximum payload in lbs.

Pax: The number of spare seats available.  

Cruise Speed: The cruise speed in ktas.

Fuel Capacity: Fuel capacity in lbs.

Take Off lbs: Maximum take off weight in lbs

Empty wght: Empty weight in lbs

 

Prop with 1 engine = Qualification A.   

Prop with 2 engines = Qualification B.

Turbo Prop with 1 engine = Qualification C.

Turbo Prop with 2 engines = Qualification D.

Jet / Airliner with 2 engines = Qualification E.

Airliner with 4 engines = Qualification F.

 

When all the details are entered correctly click save.  (If you would like to remove an aircraft, select it in the menu and click Del.

 

When you click add, Neofly will place the new aircraft into the database and it will start to show in the aircraft market.  Neofly will set the cost of the aircraft for you. Remember if you want to fly it, you have to buy it.  The plane will start to appear in new searches.

Liveries & Mods - Unknown Aircraft
 

You can use custom liveries & mods with Neofly as long as  the aircraft title from MSFS matches with Neofly.

If you try to use an aircraft with a different title you may be given the option for Neofly to rename it for you. 

Be careful, this can not be undone easily.  Make sure you have selected the correct aircraft in Neofly if you have more than 1 at this location.

NF Settings unknown aircraft.png

If the name is completely wrong its likely you have selected the wrong aircraft.  In this instance select No and check the aircraft.

If you wish, you can manually change the title.  You'll have to find the 'aircraft.cfg' of the livery/mod that you want to use with Neofly, and rename the title line to match with the default plane.  The aircraft.cfg is where your mod is installed, in your community folder.

NF Settings livery.png

In this example, the C208, on the left is the default 'aircraft.cfg', on the right is the custom livery 'aircraft.cfg'. The right title must be renamed to match the left one, with the livery name AFTER the aircraft name. In this case, I could rename it 'Cessna 208B Grand Caravan EX Aviators club'.

Updating Airports
 

If you would like to update the airports in Neofly you can do so with NavDataReader.  This will add all airports from MSFS and your community folder.
