Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

* c172p Skyhawk, pilot and copilot (<tt>c172p-pilot</tt> and <tt>c172p-copilot</tt>). Based on David Megginson's [[Cessna C172|c172p]] single control aircraft. Available from [http://www.gidenstam.org/FlightGear/DualControl/Aircraft the dual-control aircraft hangar]. The tar.gz archive for the aircraft should be extracted in $FG_ROOT/Aircraft/.
To connect the pilot and copilot selects each other in the Copilot dialog (FlightGear/CVSGit) or set properties as explained in the usage instructions below.
Dual control enables a pilot and copilot to jointly fly the aircraft over the FlightGear multiplayer network. Depending on the aircraft the pilot and copilot have shared control over primary flight controls, throttle, mixture and so on. Exactly which controls are shared varies between the aircraft but usually include elevator trim, flaps, brakes, cockpit switches, the radio stack and some instrument settings. The copilot usually has a subset of the full instrumentation (also depending on the aircraft), usually including airspeed, altimeter, VSI, HSI, turn coordinator, engine RPM and the radio stack. Typically Nav/Comm 1 and the first VOR indicator is best controlled by the pilot, while Nav/Comm 2 and the corresponding VOR indicator is faster for the copilot.
