When to declare an emergency, and avoid false emergencies?
Declaring an emergency when there is one during your FsPassengers flight is a necessity to receive a bonus. If you do not declare the emergency, you will receive a penalty. You'll also be penalized if you declare a false emergency.

You must not use FS9's own failure system, as they are not detected by FsPassengers.
Some advanced aircrafts such as PMDG have their own failure systems which are impossible for FsPassengers to detect, so be sure to DISABLE the failures in such aircrafts. FsPassengers has enough of them to please you. If you are not sure if a failure comes from the aircraft or from FsPassengers see below:

Firstly, if you hear the co-pilot saying something about a failure then you can be sure it's an FsPassengers failure, so declare an emergency. If you are unsure if it's an FsPassengers failure, a good way to be 100% sure is to right click on the mini display, select 'display option' and check 'display failure warning icon'. It will show a green 'ok' or a warning icon on the mini display. Notice using this feature will reduce your failure bonus slightly (as you're supposed to detect them yourself) but at least it will avoid a lot of penalties if you declare a false emergency.

The co-pilot doesn’t give any warning for the following failure: slow increase of oil temperature on engine and fuel leak. You are supposed to watch your instruments to detect them. If you don't want to be surprised by such failure see above the 'mini display failure icon'
