    I just sampled some of the lectures, and it looks as if there's a lot of good info there, pretty well done, as you might expect from an MIT class. These are recorded lectures done in front of an...

    Not having that sim, it's not clear to me whether the standard C-172 is glass or round dial, because if it's round dial then there's likely a needle rather than a white or green diamond.

    A point of terminology, Neil: The ILS has a localizer and it has a glide slope (vertical guidance, of course), but the localizer is strictly for horizontal guidance and has no glide slope. Also, were...

    I don't know about MSFS 2020, since I don't have it, and I don't have Australian charts, but a real world chart should not show a VOR if one doesn't exist. But it still would have to have you tune...

    Actually, they should -- here's why:

    A TACAN doesn't use 110.7 or any of the other freqs on which you find VORs. Being a military device it operates at much higher frequencies. However civilians...

    A friend and I had a problem like that with some FSX aircraft some years ago. He spent quite a while experimenting with the engine/prop parameters in the .air and .cfg files and finally cured it. I...

    Yes, you're right Neil. You have to have the nav receiver selected on the audio panel AND you must have the button on the radio itself pressed.

    You also didn't mention the state of the TO/FROM flag. You can very quickly check whether the VOR is receiving a signal by rotating the OBS and noting the needle...

    Yes, except on many older (probably pre-1980) aircraft, where it used to almost always be MPH (in the U.S. at least). There was a period when MPH was the outside and larger scale on the ASI and knots...

    Under those conditions there certainly would be a huge difference. At 1,000 MSL and 60º F the figures would be MUCH closer; Thanks for getting actual numbers. Not having FS2020 I couldn't check those.

    Multiply knots by 1.15 to get mph, or divide mph by 1.15 to get knots. For me it's easy to recall that 100 kts is 115 mph, or mph is 15 more per 100. And yes, the measurement system came from the...

    Being a trim WHEEL, I suspect it's an axis, rather than a button or keyboard control, just as a stick/yoke and a rudder are axes.
