    Ahhh, the media version, usually applied to groups (at least as far as I ever heard when I was in). OK, I guess I sorta owe an apology, but I'm not sure I ever heard the term applied to an individual...

    There's more than one airman with hand in pocket. And actually, those are officers, not airmen (the USAF designation for enlisted personnel below NCO grades).

    UT is good, though their mapping changes have caused a less desirable appearance to some of the areas where roads change from two to four lane (or back, or other changes), but otherwise it's a great...

    Will,

    For a different problem, it's usually best to start a new thread. However, you might include information on what ORBX products you have. However it sounds as if you at least have Vector...

    In the real world, a pilot with both GPS and NAV/COM can use whatever he wishes, any time he wishes, if he's VFR (rules)*, while for IFR (rules)* he chooses the navaid (VOR or GPS or NDB or...) that...

    That "speed" setting IS the auto throttle, and it generally must be turned off separately from the other autopilot functions, either with the "speed" button on the AP or with CTRL-R.

    I went to P3D. Many, but not all, FSX add-ons work in P3D. I suspect that is not the case for X-Plane. But FS9 and earlier add-ons mostly don't work in P3D.

    At least partly because they make so...

    It means that, using your navigation radio, NAV1 (for VOR/ILS) you set the frequency to 111.10, then the gates will open. If you have trouble figuring out the radios, perhaps the tutorials/lessons...

    It might be simpler for you to use a program designed for the purpose: Gmap, Flightmap or FsMovMap.

    Of the three, Gmap is the most expensive, but it also provides sectional charts (for the U.S.),...

    I'm not sure exactly what you mean by this, but are you indicating that there was no localizer indication? Perhaps you were just a little too far away.
