Why not consider joining a virtual airline?America West Virtual Airlines operations are cordinated by a professional dispatcher...you can't beat the realism. No, you don't have to fly smaller planes and "work up to" the 757. Take a look: [www.awva.net]

Hey Robert!Thanks for the kind words, I think you're pretty ok yourself! :7Sorry I haven't dropped you a line recently but I lost your Email address when our MS Outlook address books at work went Tango-Uniform. :'(Thanks to the efforts of Kurt Kalbfleisch, Tony Cervone, and Bob Lyddy (sorry if I forgot anyone) we're starting to ramp up the support for the crews using the PMDG 757-200. We currently use a fully functional ACARS unit programmed by Keith Lovell for the MSFS sim. This captures the OUT time at brake release during pushback, the OFF time when the wheels come up, the ON time at touchdown, and the IN time when the brakes are set again at the gate. This in turn is transmitted to the America West Virtual Airlines web site where the times are posted in REAL TIME to each pilots online log book. Provided that we can garner some information on some of the inner workings of FLY! we hope to be able to adapt the ACARS unit for use with the PMDG 757 and FLY! This will finally allow the 757 Fly!-ers to be on the same page with the MSFS crews for real time flight times reporting. Fun Stuff! :7Most simulated air carriers on the web tend not to utilize the capability of FLY!, which leaves a lot of people without a structured airline environment in which to enjoy flying their shiny new aircraft!AWVA is working hard to create the tools and the outlets to provide a quality, realistic airline experience for ALL pilots, regardless of which simulator they use. I think we'll get there eventually! :7I hope the weather and ground delay programs out East haven't been beating you up too badly. They've been kicking MY butt! :7Talk to you soon! :-waveMike CollierKPHX[table border=1 bgcolor=#eeeeee][tr][td rowspan=2] http://avsim.com/flightdeck/images/Radar_small.gif[/td][td]http://www.dispatcher.org|Dispatcher' target="_blank"> America West Airlines and proud to be a Beta Tester of[link:www.jdtllc.com]Radar Contact]The premiere ATC adventure add-on for FS
