    I'm not. What I do is arm the auto throttles by clicking the switch, then when lined up I press EPR button while my physical throttles at idle. I know that is not the proper procedure, but the...

    Hmm, okay so it does sound like there is an error then with the flight plans for Traffic 360. Either Just Flight didn't take the time to input correct altitudes or there is a problem elsewhere...
  3. Ahhh, okay. So that's why I'm getting 737s on my...

    Ahhh, okay. So that's why I'm getting 737s on my nose. The altitude in the AI flight plan altitude is for the flight going in the opposite direction. In other words, this is probably not fixable. ...
  4. Okay, I think I understand the problem. When you...

    Okay, I think I understand the problem. When you create flight plans, they do not include altitudes with these plans, so FSX decides which altitude the flight will be flown based solely on the CFG...

    I realize that the AI from FSX isn't great. I mean the ATC is junk as well. My question was since I installed Traffic 360, I have been having this issue a lot. Is it because the routes that were...
  6. Traffic 360, AI cruising at wrong altitude

    I'm not sure if this has been addressed before, but I have Traffic 360 and it seems like every flight I do I have a near mid air collision because the AI is cruising at the wrong altitude. For...

    PMDG responded below:

    The CH device potentiometers are well known to have issues like this. If the drivers have any option for setting deadzones at the upper and lower ranges of the throttle's...

    I did more tweaking with the axes. I added a bigger null zone for the top end of reverse so that way there isn't a conflict of reverse trying to deploy, but I think the MaxThrottleForReverse line in...

    I submitted a ticket to PMDG, no response yet. I didn't get on their support forums because they use one that is a hit or miss when you want to, unlike this one. Haven't seeked support from FSUIPC...

    I was testing it out during taxi to see if it would function.

    What I'm attempting to do is not use the combined throttle detent and reverse on the same axis. They are separate, one axis for...

    Thanks for the reply. I did a complete recal. Meaning calibrated using CH software, and checked the FSX calibrations. Still did the same thing. I then deleted the axis assignments to FSX and then...
  12. Need some direction regarding FSUIPC and PMDG

    I'm experiencing a phenomenon that I can't seem to solve nor don't know which direction to seek support.

    I've noticed that when my physical throttle is idle both PMDG sim (737/777) throttles hover...

    No. The STARs purpose is to reduce controller workload to sequence and space inbound aircraft into the airport from the Enroute system. Some STARs do have transitions that do link up to...

    In addition, airlines are looking into going paperless releases via EFBs to download the release at the gate via Wifi and electronically sign the release. Also possibly doing the same for the...

    You are correct. It's roughly the same. Not much has changed except that the flight planning and performance numbers are highly calculated by computer and printed on the release at the airport. ...
  16. Racking my brains....still doesnt make sense....

    This is pretty important in regards to ATC in FSX. It is not an accurate representation of ATC in real life. For example, I've had ATC in FSX start vectors (known as headings) to an approach 50-60...

    It all depends on runway length versus what is the required on the landing roll. Most of the time I don't use reverse thrust because the brakes are carbon and work better at higher temps. Also you...

    I have the same software. Have you tried to troubleshoot doing a log? Run the configuration software for the superbug. In the settings window or tab you can check and see if there isn't any errors...

    For those who have iPads, I recommend FltPlan Go app. I use it real world and for sims. Don't provide Jeppesen charts but they use the government ones. They provide consistent update for real...

    I think it MAY have to do with video card settings or something on that line. Way over my pay grade to help you there, but I had the same problem before. I haven't had the sim do that for a while...

    Another option is to keep the ATC window open and change the frequency. That may cause the prompts to return. From there select 1- to return to previous frequency then 1- again to read back...

    Absolutely. I've heard of guys who do their private in a Seminole. It's expensive, but doable. Difference is you'll learn multi engine stuff as well as private pilot curriculum. The only draw...

    Hmm.... Could be a corrupt download or bad install. Also check and see if the hard drive needs a defrag. Very strange behaviors result from problems like these. Did you change or install anything...

    Sounds more like autopilot problem to me. Are you flying a heading (HDG) to intercept the FMS flight plan course? If so, does it fly right through it? Also, may want to check the FMS has the...

    The FMS, yes should know it depending if it is VNAV capable. Some are, some are not. Some have the VNAV capable but can't be coupled to the autopilot. Now, as far as the sim goes (Airbus) I have...
