There is a new addon coming out. It is called 'Airliner pilot' for FS9. It allows you to 'hire on' as a first officer and make your way up to captain flying various routes and aircraft.
I saw it in PC Pilot magazine last week. That is all I know about it, so all of you that are interisted in this kind of thing, keep an eye out for it. I AM!!!
Here's the link with screenshots and other information
Yeah, I been reading about it a lot- it's pretty much an alternative to joining a Virtual Airline.... ie.. ranks, ratings, salaries, etc but it does seem to have some other interesting bits to it...
Its based on the default planes but they were looing for you to be able to use add-ons with it.
