How to create aicraft aliases. Tested with FSEconomy and FSE SimConnect (not sure if this is the best way)

Just want to share how I did fly the Cub as a Super Cub in FSE.
Check for available aircraft aliases in https://server.fseconomy.net/aircraftmodels.jsp
In example:
“Piper PA-18 Super Cub” ----> “Asobo Savage Cub”
Open your aicraft cfg file
MSFS\Official\OneStore\asobo-aircraft-savage-cub\SimObjects\Airplanes\Asobo_Savage_Cub\aircraft.cfg
Duplicate the last part of the file with the new aircraft tile (the alias) like below:

[FLTSIM.0]
title = “Asobo Savage Cub” ; Variation name
model = “” ; model folder
panel = “” ; panel folder
sound = “” ; sound folder
texture = “” ; texture folder
kb_checklists = “” ; Procedures/Checklist sibling file name
kb_reference = “” ; Reference information sibling file name
description = “TT:AIRCRAFT.DESCRIPTION” ; Variation description.
wip_indicator = 0 ; know if the variation is good to go or still WIP : -1=Disabled, 0=Rough, 1=1st Pass, 2=Finished
ui_manufacturer = “TT:AIRCRAFT.UI_MANUFACTURER” ; e.g. Boeing, Cessna
ui_type = “TT:AIRCRAFT.UI_MODEL” ; e.g. 747-400, 172
ui_variation = “TT:AIRCRAFT.LIVERY.DEFAULT” ; e.g. World Air, IFR Panel
ui_typerole = “Single Engine Prop” ; e.g. Single Engine Prop, Twin Engine Prop, Rotorcraft, etc
ui_createdby = “Asobo Studio” ; e.g. Asobo Studio, Microsoft, FSAddonCompany, etc
ui_thumbnailfile = “” ; app relative path to ThumbNail image file
ui_certified_ceiling = 14400 ; service ceiling / max certified operating altitude (ft)
ui_max_range = 377 ; max distance the aircraft can fly between take-off and landing in (NM)
ui_autonomy = 4 ; max duration the aircraft can fly between take-off and landing in (Hrs)
ui_fuel_burn_rate = 22 ; average fuel consumption per hour (lbs/hr) - reminder: fuel density is ~6.7lbs per US gallon
atc_id = “ASXGS” ; tail number
atc_id_enable = 1 ; enable tail number
atc_airline = “” ; airline name
atc_flight_number = “” ; flight number
atc_heavy = 0 ; heavy?
atc_parking_types = “RAMP” ; “ANY” / “RAMP” / “CARGO” / “MIL_CARGO” / “MIL_COMBAT” / “GATE” / “DOCK”
atc_parking_codes = “” ; Comma separated and may be as small as one character each
atc_id_color = “” ; color for the tail number : i.e. “#ffff00ff
atc_id_font = “” ; font for the tail number
