    The GPS gives you the same info, but the autopilot takes its input from whichever source is selected by the GPS/NAV switch. If you're flying manually it's not as important, except in certain...

    Not only have you resurrected what should be a dead horse, an almost 10 year old post, but the differences between the two sims is much greater now than it was in 2012. So your arguments are pretty...

    That's good -- I bought their package for my wife back in the days when it was on VHS tape -- it was great then, and probably better now.


    Nice - thanks Randy.

    How much are you reducing power to start the descent? You can come all the way back to flight idle. Also, you could deploy spoilers as they sometimes do on real aircraft.

    The initial (Phase 1) phase out of VORs, from 2016 to 2020, eliminates 74 VORs across the U.S., out of 1,000 or so that existed in 2016. Phase 2, from 2021-2025, will phase out an additional 234...

    It helps to understand that, when we talk about "per hour," that's per hour of time that the engine is running. So a four hour flight into New Mexico (and, of course, 4 hours back) might mean you're...

    Real world flying clubs do, indeed, make it cheaper to fly. The L-21 in my avatar was owned by a club with 8 members, organized as a stock-holding corporation. In 1995 it cost me about $6000 to buy...

    That's probably because few airports have a VOR or VORTAC on the field. There may be one within a few miles or there may be one 40 or more miles away. So you'll need to spend some time looking at...

    It just means that you don't need the rudder entries. There should be keyboard keys to slew in yaw. And if all else fails, you can go into the Controls menu choices and set things individually,...

    Yes, but NDBs are no longer real common. They don't give any form of distance information, though, only bearing, and you need an ADF receiver to receive them.

    Actually, it will need to be a VORTAC, which includes DME, or a VOR/DME. A plain VOR does not have DME. Also, the only reason for a high altitude VORTAC is the additional range it gives. But you're...

    I still have Shupe's D-18 and Shrike in P3D V2 -- they work well, though a friend made some changes to accommodate the newer sim, a little handling and a texture or two.
