    Burn fuel by flying with the engines, hopefully, running. As you fly, fuel gets turned into various gases expelled to the atmosphere. The engineer just moves fuel from tank to tank to move the...
  2. Flying more like real-world pilots do....

    Prerecorded isn't that real for cockpit crew PAs. When I do RW PAs I don't hold a tape player up next to the boom mic. I'm thinking of more of an enhancement to flying the sim instead of flipping...

    I didn't but I found a temp fix. By turning on the flight director it provides a "gun cross" right on the horizon of the ADI. So I can use that for non automated flight however once the Autopilot...

    It is payware. I was at KPHX. It is powered up. That's why I'm puzzled, the standby shows level, but the primary ADI shows nose down.



    I've done a test on this and I'm inclined to disagree. ...

    VMC or IMC? During visual approaches, company wants autopilot off at 1,500AGL. During instrument approaches, the charted lowest altitude for that approach being flown, ie. ILS=DA; LOC VOR GPS...

    I've been wondering when and if someone would devise a way to select PA on the audio panel and allow you to make PAs to your virtual pax in the cabin. I know, it seems pointless, but it could enable...

    ...Is this normal? Why on earth would this be correct? Is there a fix, besides not flying it? :confused:

    That is one unique bomber. So cool to see it in person at the museum. Also the Hustler is something else too. Really admire the Cold War designs.
  9. VFR Flight Following and non-IFR ATC assistance

    From what I remember the VFR plan enables you to have waypoints set up in the default GPS. You could ask for flight following without a flight plan. The only benefit is besides talking to tower all...

    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...

    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. ...

    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...

    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...
  21. 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...

    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. ...
  25. 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...
