    Two Pilots, One Plane, Two Locations?

    Greetings Captains, I am once again attempting to tap into the hive mind that is known as Mycockpit.org. My son and I are separated by divorce and 1800 miles. He is now turning 5. I have been setting up a nice computer with video conferencing capabilities to bring down with me the next time I see him, and thought last night, how neat it would be if we could co-pilot the same aircraft over a network while video conferencing. Does anyone know if this is possible, and how to do it? I visualize using the exact same aircraft and both of us being able to operate the controls, switches and other items in the 2D view.I thought I had read a post on it some time ago but can not locate that post at any of the various forums.

    If I am not mistaken. I heard FSX Multiplayer has this capability. But I use FS9 so I don't know..

    Maybe someone else knows.

    With FSX you can do it.

    It can be done with an add-on in FS9. Cockpit Buddy, or Flight Crew, or something similar. Delta VA uses it for the Flight Academy quite succesfully.

    Sorry I can't remember the name of the program, but if you seek, you shall find.

    Fs net is a pretty good program that will do everything you ask .

    I tried it a couple of years ago,, seemed pretty good. You can hand off control to the person flying as co pilot and back again whenever you want.

    Here is a link to their website http://www.gates.to/

    Hi,

    networked multicrew operation is working very good with the maddog - from what I've read.
