    Perhaps it has something to do with all the extra time, money and effort involved in including those extra capabilities. Perhaps combined with the fact that most of their potential customers still...

    It's amazing to me how high some people are setting their expectations for this sim that's still in Alpha, given that they're extrapolating their desires into expecting it all to happen soon with...

    The airspeed indicator color arcs are pretty simple. The white arc is the flap operating range, with the bottom of that arc being the calibrated airspeed (not indicated) for full flap stall speed...

    You missed a third option to choose -- go to whichever one suits YOU. MY opinion of what YOU should do is irrelevant. And perhaps you missed another possible choice, which is my current outlook:...

    Hmmm... That will make it a VERY interesting experience in running the sim offline on your PC which the developers say will be one of the operating choices. Perhaps you should recheck your...

    Welcome, Dave. You might mention something about where you are and what you'll be flying as time goes on, and perhaps which sim(s) you've chosen.

    This site is great for asking questions about...

    I believe you are overthinking it -- the operations the program tries to do are actually very complex at times, and the programmers didn't have the time/money given them by MS to do any better, so...

    You're expecting real life perfection (or nearly so) of ATC from an inexpensive program that some call a game and some call a simulator (ALL programs have bugs). And it IS a simulator of flight (not...

    The + and - keys can be associated with a number of different gauges/functions in the sim (OBS, freq change, many more), and are intended to be "adjustment keys" for all those various functions, so...

    Each NAV receiver has a switch or button that can turn the code on or off. The location varies by radio type, but some are on the NAV volume control. Or perhaps you turned off the NAV audio on the...

    Notorious? You make it sound criminal.

    Certainly what you show in the picture is correct, and will normally be where you will hear that, but on those (perhaps rare) occasions when they give you...

    Those points just control what AI (and ATC) will do for choosing runways for takeoff and landing. I've not messed with them, but I think you can use them to, for instance, let takeoffs be on 35R and...
