aircraft, and then play the cabin announcement when they have finished embarking. Should you wish to let FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 start the cabin announcements automatically, the Welcome Aboard announcement will be played immediately after the connection to Flight Simulator is established. FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 also offers a third choice, where you can have FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 start the cabin announcement automatically when you are flying a jet airliner, while you start them manually for other aircraft. This option allows you to have cabin announcements with large airliners, and start them if you wish to when flying smaller aircraft.
Note! If you use the hotkey to start the announcements, no announcements will be played at all until you have hit the hotkey (this is an easy way of making flights without cabin crew and without having to adjust the settings in FDC Live Cockpit! 2011).
To change the way cabin announcements are started:
In the FDC Live Cockpit! 2011 main window, click Options.
In the Main Options panel, click Cabin Info.
Select the start-up method by checking the appropriate check
box. Options are Auto for all aircraft, Manual (use Ctrl-Shift-A), and Auto only on for jets.
Click Save Changes and Close to save your changes and exit
