How about licensing ?

Recommended Posts

Made my first flight yesterday EHAM to KJFK. Not very realistic maybe to take a 737 across the pond, but I had great fun ! :)The plane is great ! Although 1 have 1 remark to make, and got a few questions:- The top of descent (T/O) calculated by the FMC was about 40nm away from the landing rwy. A bit short, I had to hold to lose some altitude :) I can make a screenshot of this, as it happened again on the way back.- How can I manually enter a waypoint on a nat track ? I flew NAT C from MALOT to COLOR, but I was unable to enter a coordinate like 53n020w in the route page. Probably because I have to enter it in a certain syntax or something.- How about licensing ? I reinstalled FS9 and installed SU2. I haven't registered the plane yet because I can't find a menu to enter my keycode.Just my 2 cents :)Timon.

Hi,someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the oceanic waypoint should be entered like this:N60.00 E010.00 = 6010EN60.00 W010.00 = 6010NN60.00 E110.00 = 60E10N60.00 W110.00 = 60N10S60.00 E010.00 = 6010SS60.00 W010.00 = 6010WS60.00 E110.00 = 60S10S60.00 W110.00 = 60W10so 53n020w would be 5320N

Thank you for the quick reply. It could be me but im missing the constant syntax here. Could you explain how this syntax is constructed ?Timon.

Hi,[uL][li]When a waypoint is located in the Northern hemisphere you use either N or E designator,for Southern hemisphere either S or W.[/li][li]In Northern Hemisphere: E is for Eastern Longitudes, and N is for Western longitudes[/li][li]In Southern Hemisphere: S is for Eastern Longitudes, and W is for Western longitudes[/li][li]When E or W smaller then 100 deg, the designator is after the digits (6010E = N60 E010 / 6010N = N60 W010)[/li][li]When E or W greater then 100 deg, the designator is between the digits (60E10 = N60 E110 / 60N10 = N60 W110)[/li][/ul]
