Escorting AI Traffic
« on: January 23, 2018, 11:06:45 AM »
Hi!

Firstly, I am a new user, thanks to WOAI and all its contributors - great piece of freeware!

I have (on occassion) attempted to take off with an AI aircraft to follow/ escort it (in my PMDG 737 NGX) however on every occasion the AI aircraft speeds away from me on its climb away from the airport. It seems to reach speeds that are not possible for me to keep up with. I'd love to fly along side an AI aircraft (I know real world would not allow this) and follow it along its route but cannot do so due to the speed at which it disappears into the distance!

Does anyone have any tips to keep up with the AI aircraft or adjust the file parameters to ensure it does accelerate away from the airport so quickly?

Thanks so much!

Hi,
Do not know which FS you got but in FS9 you can use TTools to decompile AI flights and in aircraft section you can adjust the speed and then compile the plan back. Most aircraft have 200knots but I am suspecting that the one you want to follow has higher speed. See below the sample of the aircraft section of the decompiled flight plan. I am sure that equivalent of TTools also exists for FSX.
Good luck
