is it possible to create several profiles for the same aircraft type? We have 3 T67M aircraft that have completely different weights, fuel loads etc but I don't seem to be able to open a second profile to create one for each.  Thanks, John

Most definitely.

I‌ have 7 or 8 aircraft defined in SkyDemon, the majority of them differing variants of PA28.

Exactly what happens when you try to create a second profile?

Selected T67 from aircraft drop down list.  Pop up window says The selected aircraft could not be added to your library.  Check there is not already an aircraft with the same name.

Each aircraft profile has to have a unique filename.  In the dropdown box edit the filename (eg add the registration) to uniquely identify your new profile.

This is a good point, and something we need to fix. In the meantime you can use the registration trick as posted above (not desirable really) or change the filename on disk by physically copying the aircraft profile (only easy on PC).
