    Oh to be 63 again. Did you name your daughter Helen? At this point in my life, when years seem to fly by faster and faster, time contracts, and 40 years past is sometimes hard to distinguish from 20....

    OMG! Another place I've been to that I have to revisit in MSFS. In Jan. 1970, a buddy of mine and I flew from Roberts Field in Liberia to Las Palmas on Gran Canaria for the start of a much-need,...

    You are absolutely right. I looked up the date, because I’d forgotten the year. Then I mistakenly deducted 20 years. I’m 76. I think I was subconsciously trying to turn the clock back 55 or 56. My...

    WN-10 to WN-10 (Mt. St. Helens Aero Ranch)

    After flying past Mt. Saint Helens in the Daher TBM on my way to Seattle yesterday, I decided I wanted a closer look at this volcano that blew its stack 21 years ago this past May. The Mt. St. Helens...

    Yeah, the sim’s ATC isn’t to be believed sometimes. Today, I was “in” the Daher, flying an low-altitude IFR, RNAV flight plan from Coos Bay, Ore. to Portland-Hillsboro airport near Portland,...

    What I've been doing is to select a low-altitude IFR flight plan with either an ILS or RNAV approach to an airport/runway. In the modified G3000, I've been inputting the altitudes for each waypoint...

    Thanks. I searched on Google and learned that there's another function called VPATH that evidently uses VNAV data to enable ILS-like final approaches. (Hence, "glide path" in VNAV approaches vs....
  12. How do you use the VNAV function in the Working Title G3000 mod in the Daher TBM?

    I set up an RNAV flight plan in the World Map from Watsonville (KWVI) to Half Moon Bay (KHAF). I made a note of all the waypoints in the flight plan, with their altitudes. Once in the cockpit, I went...

    Working Title G3000 mod VNAV?

    Exploring the features of the Working Title G3000 mod in the Daher TBM, I noted a VNAV input. I assume (hopefully) that this may somehow enable a VNAV final approach, similar to an ILS approach, with...

    Working Title G1000 mod confusion

    I have downloaded and installed the Working Title mods for the G1000 and G3000. They seem to work okay. But I'm confounded by this direction from the readme file that comes with the G1000 mod:

    I realized I had copied the Working Title G1000 mod over to my community folder unzipped. No wonder the AP went nuts. Today I followed the proper procedures, downloading the online file,...
