    Only place I can think of is in the CLB page of FMC? Not familiar with 737 very well though.

    Thanks for understanding. What's more strange is this guy wasn't a check airman or in training department. He was a regular line pilot. Later on, I learned from a FA that he has always been...

    Sticky: How do you keep FSX interesting?

    I find fly arcs with an RMI a whole lot easier. Just keep the bearing pointer at your 3 or 9 o'clock when on the arc (depending on direction of turn) and monitor the DME read out. If you start...

    Any visibility expert?

    On a clear day meaning less smog and moisture in the air, number 1.

    I've been able to see large cities over 100 miles away at that altitude.

    Not familiar with this aircraft so I'm just guessing.

    1. Any simulated control lock needs to be unlocked.

    2. Check control surfaces outside for correct movement when moving controls on device...

    Coming from someone who flies airliners in RW, I endorse PMDG. I have CS products from 707-777 and PMDG gets a better rating from me than CS. Mainly because it runs much smoother and they implement...

    Hand fllying jets

    To be honest, I find hand flying FSX to be incredibly hard. I guess it's because I'm used to the real thing. However, your thing during turns sounds correct. Most large aircraft I have flown for...

    ILS question (turbin duke)

    I'm not familiar with the Duke, but wouldn't just pressing the APP button work before localizer intercept? Most autopilots work that way. The only times you would press NAV or LOC would be if ATC...

    Optional prototype landing gear would be cool. Wasn't it originally fitted with single, dual main wheels? Those tires where definitely monster truck size.

    Newcomer - help with STARs

    Well sometimes if the flight is so short you could not get a transition at all. I'm not familiar with STARs in the UK. In the US, you can't FILE to fly to a fix after a transition fix. You could...

    Newcomer - help with STARs

    Sounds like the route is joining the STAR on a transition past the first transition fix. Best thing to do is input the correct transition for the STAR and just delete the previous fixes so it...

    As far as Lowell goes, he plays as the "ding bat", aircraft/airport mechanic. I'd say he's probably most of the comic relief in the show. Although I do like Brian's humor as well.

    Glad to see it corrected itself, but it isn't uncommon to have a GS not coincide with a VASI or PAPI or any other visual system in use. There are airports out there that have instrument approaches...

    I agree. Not only ATP but the instrument rating stuff as well. That is not a standard intercept for any instrument flying. The rule of thumb is 20-30 degree intercept angle for approaches. The...

    You can to get a rough estimate. Problem is you can't figure the fuel needed for climb and descent unless it specifies. Cruise charts are just for that. Cruise.

    Could be that the HS points for intersections of runway are located closer to the parallel taxiway. Therefore while taxiing to the end you get prompts to ask for takeoff clearance.

  24. Gross Weight used for Fuel Consumption Calculations

    Here's basically all weight limits you should plan by for large transport category aircraft.

    Max takeoff weight or MTOW which is the most limiting weight for takeoff.

    Max landing weight or MLW....

    Also you should always plan for the unsuccessful landing. I.e. Go around, missed approach. If you do get to land, you just did better.
