As long as only one is using the client. This is explained in our Wiki and on the forum in several places. Just search "shared cockpit".

As far as I'm aware, no support for shared cockpit was in the plans. It's too much trouble to setup coding to allow a "captain" and "co-pilot" where they both get paid but only a single flight is recorded. There has to be coding rules put in to ensure that it's done right and then we have to set it up to try and not have too many "fights" over who's who that would then have to be dealt with.

In the end - if you want to use shared cockpit - one guy gets credit with FSAirlines, the other just buys a ticket to the destination and is reimbursed by the company.

i didn't mean to share a cockpit.what i meant was to be able to fly the same flight at the same time with someone else in our company.for example two pilots from the same company fly the same route-flight plan from deferent cpus.

You would have to insert duplicate flight-plans for the same route.

The system would detect the, as duplicate flights and flag them as possible cheats. If your doing a shared cockpit only one pilot can take credit for it. There can be only one captain.
