Hi ,

How can I change the Units for fuel and payload on FS to Kilograms instead of Pounds?

Thanks

I don't think that you can. The program was written in the US and they made no provision for conversion of units. Try this conversion tool: Arrow http://joshmadison.net/software/convert/

You can do it if you go to Settings/International and in the Units Of Measurement you select Metric. Wink

The fact that my friend CRJCapt -which is one of the most well educated persons i have ever meet in Aviation issues- hadn't notice it makes me think if the US FScopies doesn't include such an option. Dont Know

I stand corrected! Embarassed I normally don't think of using those settings and my good friend GM is correct, Bow Down It is possible to change to Metric units.

CRJCapt, you have made my day. I didn't know Josh Madison was still around with his wonderful programs.
He used to have an entire page of them, some fascinating and all well made.
Thanks for reminding me of good times long past.
