747 tcas

Recommended Posts

Im reading the aircraft manual, specifically aircraft systems page 11-69 and it says that the tcas system must be set to either ta or ta/ra to show traffic, but when i turn the knob i still dont see any traffic where there should be some. Any ideas as to what im missing or doing wrong.ThanksGerry

Gerry:If set realistically in the PMDG options menu- TCAS will show ONLY conflicts- not all traffic- perhaps that is the issue? Should you want the more cluttered/unrealistic version, that can be selected as well.Best-Carl F.

"Should you want the more cluttered/unrealistic version, that can be selected as well."Cluttered, but not unrealistic. Qantas has TCAS version 7, but still shows non-threatening traffic. On the other hand, Qantas doesn't show any targets outside +/- 2700 feet.Cheers.Q>

What we have now is absolutely UNREALISTIC - the threatening traffic will show up far too close with no realistic ability to follow the advisories - the QF version is the realistic version showing all traffic +/- 2700ft.One of our pilots in my old company once said that TCAS is the best invention in aviation - our new version ( after update ) is useless...Karl-Heinz - EDDI/THF " Tempelhof "" The mother of all airports " - Sir Norman Fosterhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/747400.jpg

Sorry - this was misunderstandable....The PMDG version ( after update ) is not practicable ( a more friendly way to say it ... ) Yesterday I had a T/A : same level , head on ( 45 degrees ) and with a notice of about 10 seconds !!!Karl-Heinz - EDDI/THF " Tempelhof "" The mother of all airports " - Sir Norman Fosterhttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/747400.jpg
