Well i think i finally got it....thanks Larry (airhog ) for help.....it is awesome for flightsim ....it makes you think before you go flying and you even get a readout of your flight.... for me it was better than sliced bread....lol. It makes it much more enjoyable, for me anyway. Dont know how you do it John but a nice feature to have.
If you want to add even more realism, once you get some practice using the Econ Mode with regular flights, then try the Cargo Econ flights. Those are the ones ending with "CB". You only get one chance for each flight - and the first results are the results...no do-overs. Mike D. and I have been experimenting with them and you can see our results on the Cargo Econ Page. Mainly it seems to be difficult to get weather settings right so that your plane isn't rocked too much with unreasonable g-forces. Also, I've been having an issue getting my fuel burn rate correct and that puts me into the penalty box now and again. My first flight was a hard landing - and that really cut into my profit margin . Oh well...that's what happens when you land when you know you should have probably made a 'go around'.
Anyway...now that you've got SPAACARS up and running you can do any current and future Econ Mod flights.
Any questions - just ask (especially before flying those Econ Mod flights - because once your up in the air on those you're on your own - flying solo).
