    Custom Alert Beluga

    I'm trying to set up a custom alert for the "Aircraft Type" Beluga aircraft (both ST and XL).
    Can someone please advise what,specifically, to enter into "Aircraft Type" (eg A300, A330 etc)

    Also, is it possible to set up custom alert on my Desktop PC

    Many thanks

    The A337 is apparently 'tba' since they did a special one for the ST

    Note that alert notifications often have fairly long delays from my own experiences, so you might find it's long gone by the time the alert arrives.

    You can also set an airline alert for "BGA" as that's the callsign they fly with.

    Thank you all so much - I am learning so much already from people who know what thay are talking about.
    hexfan - would it help if I widened my alert area so that I get an alert early enough?

    Many thanks to you all. I just love this aircraft.

    Entered alerts as recommended in this thread and lo and behold at 10:08 this morning received an alert for the Beluga.
    Went outside and two minutes later there it was, right over our house!
    Thanks guys for all your help - brilliant outcome.

    I don't use the area alerts personally so can't comment on their reliability. Glad to see other methods worked out OK though. Seeing as there's only a handful of them, you could set registration alerts for each too, assuming you have a sufficient number of alerts available (the Gold account does, not sure about the basic and silver accounts).
