    Runways on water

    I'm not an expert on X-Plane 7 - I was a Microsoft simmer for eons. When I returned to simming, it was to X-Plane because it seemed there was a lesser level of complexity

    I see you got an answer...

    A "standard" VOR is tuned via the NAV radio. The standard C172 has a radio (and dial) for VOR1 and VOR2. You can tune these VORs with the published frequency. When you are close enough to the VOR for...

    Landing Woes

    I've kind of lost track of how long I've been fight simming. Back about 1987 I was flying with the keyboard. Prior to that,
    I flew several "stick-figure" flight sims, including one on the Apple and...

    What the Heck Time Is It?

    Well, I haven't received any responses, but I've started talking to myself, so I guess we're
    making some kind of progress. LOL

    I tend to start my Pilatus with the engines running - when I need to...

    I'm not aware of any "real life" audio-warning-coupling of the PAPI lights and an airplane cockpit. I suspect you're using some kind of add-on and it's not functioning properly. It doesn't truly...

    I think maybe you're trying to read a bit too much in this! You don't have to tune a separate frequency
    to get both the localizer and the glideslope. As you fly more and more, you'll discover many,...

    When you tune the appropriate ILS frequency, you will be tuned to both the localizer ( indicating you're on the correct path to get you to the runway) and the glideslope. This ensures your vertical...

    What the Heck Time Is It?

    Tried to research a bit, but "time" is not too good on narrowing down what I'm looking for.

    At what actual clock rate is X-Plane running? Comparing the time on a clock in an X-Plane aircraft -...

    Downloading Planes Should Be Easier

    Raven - thanks for your feedback. Between what you wrote and a couple of other
    items on YouTube got me in the right direction.

    Downloading New Planes should be easier!

    Found a "complete" plane in the X-Plane aircraft library.

    The download file: dhc63_ln_2dv2_9-3dv2_4_v1051.zip

    Downloaded file and unzipped. Copied to the extra aircraft folder.

    King Air Autopilot Riddle solved

    The default King Air autopilot poses quite a problem for most of us. In real life, the location
    of the autopilot makes perfectly good sense. However, in the X-Plane sim, it's virtually (no pun...

    Truly Cold and Dark

    I've had an attack of the stupids. At my age, they're coming more often!

    No matter how, what mode, whatever, I can't get the default C172 to start a flight with the
    ignition set - key all the way...

    Confused about video for FSX.

    I have FSX, WIN 7 and a reasonable graphics card. I typically average around 30 fps (except directly over/around New York City!). A mediocre system, but adequate.

    Since I use my 737 more as a "busines" jet, I *did* make some adjustments, but it still doesn't bring me that close. But at least it's a more reasonable expectation.

    Practical Range on 737-800

    If you "select" the B737-800, the printed "detail" info shows the range as being 3,060 nm. I'm not sure what my actual range is, but it certainly doesn't seem anything near that number.
