    Hi, dorianr. I fly almost exclusively online and have found that the jetways at various airports that work in Free Flight also work in multiplayer. There have been times when a gate's jetway that...

    A great ride!

    Ian, I absolutely loved your chronicle! After reading your narrative for a while I found myself so immersed that for a few seconds I'd forgotten that you were talking about simming ;) . A week...

    1st payware airplane.

    EmeraldEagle442, I agree with the guys (Hi, there,mrzippy!) that are saying that it's better to fly the default airplanes in FSX before moving onto a payware airplane. Since you're just starting out,...

    Agreed, rfresh737. A 747-400 can fly near 190 kts without flaps in level flight. In fact, on a typical apph here to my hometown airport KSAN the British Airways 747 that lands here every day doesn't...

    When do you switch over from knots to Mach?

    Typically airline pilots don't switch over to Mach until reaching "crossover" altitude, where CAS and the desired Mach value represent the same TAS value. For example, if you're climbing at 280 kts...

    FSX Forever.

    I'll keep using FSX for as long as computers'll run it. I also have X-Plane 11, P3D v2.5, & FlightGear, and out of the three FSX gets the most use. I've logged close to 6,000 hours on FSX:SE since...

    Bombardier-Lear45

    It's a great idea to learn basic procedures about the airplane that you're going to fly, before you decide to fly it (refer to the Learning Center within FSX).

    The Bombardier-Lear 45 was a handful...

    Lol! :D Wow. I'm assuming from your fervent reply that you're an ATP?

    I'll clarify: We (the OP and I) were not talking about real life, therefore I find your detailed reply irrelevant because it...

    X-Plane, or...

    peugot309style, for me X-Plane 11 is far more realistic than both FSX/FSX:SE and P3D (I own P3D v2.5), despite the minor annoyances of the AI and ATC, and with it I actually "feel" like I'm flying an...

    Don't "brake" my heart ;-)

    We're not talking about IRL, bbrz, and yes, while 747s use autobrakes at touchdown coupled with the T/Rs on rollout, the T/Rs are sufficient enough to bring the airplane to a stop without applying...

    I'm really sorry about the news of your flight status. I do know what flying can mean to a man....

    Well, (at least in my case) the updater popups were the root cause of my freezes; Malwarebytes and for a while Avast (which I got rid of in favor of a less invasive antivirus app) were the usual...

    Hi. Are you running any software in the background while flying FSX:SE that has automatic updates or prompts you that an update is available?

    747 et al.

    Why, thank you, Mr. Zippy! Great to see you! It has been a while since I've posted here, but I do come by and read the posts!

    I've been doing quite a bit of online flying (FSX:SE, XP10/11) on...

    B747-400 Basic performance information that works for me.

    Hi, joshleedsfan.

    I spend a lot of time in both the default (modified) 747-400 and the PMDG 747-400/8i and I found that despite their differences realism-wise there is a basic performance table...
