Using profiles you can bind specific settings for each aircraft you use. When Spad is running for the first time, only 1 profile is available called “Default”.
Profiles are managed directly from this main window:

Press the button Manage Profiles.
Here you can add the profiles you need and bind your aircraft to the correct profile double clicking the desired aircraft.

Aircraft cannot be added to the list since the list is populated automatically when a new aircraft is used in Flight Simulator.

If the option “When a new aircraft is detected …ask for a profile to bind” is selected, you’ll be prompted every time a new aircraft is loaded for the first time.
In this window you can select an existing profile or type in a brand new profile name.

If a new profile is selected it will be filled with default values. The next time this aircraft is used the profile will be selected automatically. You can set the current profile from the main SPAD window as well.

In the beginning…there is one -default- profile which is shown in the Profiles List. Next to the Profiles tab, you will find the detected aircraft with an overview in the Aircraft List. When you single left click subsequently on the aircraft, you can read the profile that is assigned to this aircraft.

When you double click an aircraft you can change the link to its profile. When there is only the default profile you must make a profile before you can attach an aircraft to it.

So, back to the previous window and select Add new Profile which profile name must be inserted in the pop-up window. Close with OK, the new profile will be listed. Now go back to the Aircraft tab, double click your Cessna and attach it to the profile as required.
Note: no spaces or special characters!


If you want to bind a PMDG NGX to a (new) profile, set the radio bullet to PMDG NGX and press Add new Profile in the SPAD Profile Configuration window. After that action you can address the functions in the Multi Panel Configuration window.
