their is a lot of info about that here on this board, do a search,, but here's is the answer.. CFS planes can be imported into the game, but most of them seem to have an alias file in panel and texture folders in the new a\c. you need to either alias them, ie make a new document, for each and alias them to something in cfs2, or find gages and textures that will work.. its a start anyway.. good luck

Ok, I encountered this problem, but I figured it out! Go to the airplanes folder and open panel.cfg in wordpad. Look for a line that says something like alias=*****/panel, this is the path for this planes panel. It will be pointing to a non-existant file. Change the directory to some other aircrat panels path. Do the same thing with the sounds.cfg and change it to an existant sound folder. Hope this helps!
