When I file my PIREP and get to the entry for acft.Code I can't find the aircraft listed that I'm flying, i.e. Cessna 152, Cessna 172, etc. So I always end up selecting "ANY".  Am I doing something wrong or is there a way to add the aircraft to the list of choices? NOTE: Am not trying to make any more work for anyone just wondering if there is something I'm missing when I file the PIREP.  Any info would be appreciated.

You're correct by selecting "ANY" when you file your PIREP. Sometimes for my own records I will put the type of aircraft I'm flying in the remarks section of ACARS or in the notes section when manually filing a PIREP.

Eric is correct. SPAACARS will put the aircraft type in the pirep but manual pirep will not. Those types that are available were hard coded in and must be updated the same way. Not high on my priority list, as SPAACARS is the preferred method for of pirep filing.

Manual pirep entry is legacy pirep entry for pilots who couldn’t use FSACARS and the later SPAACARS. It remains available for that same reason, but it is more limited than FSACARS and our current version of SPAACARS.

Happy flying,

John
