Some aircraft like the SF50 I’d like to be able to remove the first officer. Is there a way to do that when setting up a new fleet aircraft?
simBrief has no concept of whether an aircraft is single-pilot or not, just an OEW (operating empty weight, in kilograms or pounds). In single-pilot certified aircraft like the SF50, the OEW does not typically include the first officer (unless I am mistaken), and to include the first officer you would add it as a “passenger”.
Either way, with custom airframes you can do things however you want:
- OEW includes neither pilot nor copilot
- OEW includes pilot but not copilot
- OEW includes both pilots
…and you can have multiple airframes (e.g. one airframe set up for single-pilot operation, and another set up for dual-pilot, etc.)
That information is perfect! It all makes sense now. Thank you.
