Too much of a question for me to answer here.Go to http://www.wilcopub.com/nonfls/intro.htm- go to the downloads page- download the FMC manual (item 3)- open the PDF version to page 18 for your airway question- open the PDF version to pages 45-46 for your FIX (SMO01) questionThen, for a great illustration of the FIX page and alternative ways of entering FIX data:Go to www.flightsimnetwork.com/efpanels/update/767PIC11Update.pdf- go to page 18-21 -->GREAT STUFF here

That's the most polite "RTFM" I have ever seen. You should be sainted for your patience ;-)I can learn from you Mike, maybe there is hope for me yet.Rob.

Steve,If you are getting ready for exams...DO NOT...I repeat...DO NOT take Mike's advice and read how to program the FMC!You will be sucked into a 767PIC vortex that will not release you until exams are over and you failed every one because you said "Just let me program this ONE jet route and test it before I study for exams!" :)Take MY ADVICE....wait until your exams are over before you go down the FMC programming road!Regards,Steve Dra

But sir, it's only a "wafer thin" FMC challenge....it'll only take a few minutes...heheheThe PIC FMC is like a Lays potato chip - one time will not be enough.The FMC is what started my chronic and completely incurable PIC addiction. I am now a poster child for PIC's-anonymous 12 step program.Rob.

You know what's a shame Rob?That some of the people here do not know what movie the "wafer thin" line came from! :) Its been a looooong time since I've seen that one...I'll have to see if I can rent it.Yeah, the FMC is a dangerous addiction...once you start pressing the LSKs and RSKs to input data, you're hooked!What hooked me was watching the autopilot execute a CAT III landing...quite a remarkable panel I dare say. ;)Regards,Steve Dra

... As the post begins to stear off topic ;-)Is it the PIC767 combination that is addictive? Or is it the fact that the package is so close to the real thing, therefore making flying in general addictive.

I think "wafer thin", aka the exploding fat guy, was from The Meaning of Life - a commentary on decadent over-consumption and belittlement of the proletarian by the petit-bourgeois...with the fat guy puking on the people who clean up his puke....sounds like my typical work day ;-)Some of my favourite lines..."And now for something completely different, a man with thre buttocks....""It's a Mr. Death, one of the local villagers, something about the reaping....""It's a nice army base you got 'ere mate, you wouldn't want anything to 'appen to it now would ya?""...bleedin' Watney's Red Barrel and German businessmen scaring the children..."Back to work now.Rob.

I agree....PIC is a very bad thing...it will take over all of your sim time! LOL!!! You will not want to fly anything else. Its like getting married...sure other planes and panels are out there, and you may look...but when it comes down to flying...it'll be PIC! Get those exams out of the way, then hit the manuals, and go fly!Best of luck with the exams...And to Steve Dra, my wife thanks you!!! LOL!!!

Somehow "Yes, we're all individuals" seems apt for the PIC-addicts forum!Geoff

This addiction has cost me about 2 hours of sleep a night for the last 400 days for a whopping 800 hours total. It seems I have traded one set of dreams for another. My family calls it my "flight simulator thingy."

Hey Jay,The next time we get together, we need to introduce our wives to each other so they can trade stories about our simming addiction...they could even start their own support group! :)Regards,Steve Dra

"He spends all day at work on the computer, and when he gets home the first thing he does is turn the computer on!"Get that one all the time. The motor on the garage door opener has not stopped running and I already have FS2002 loading. Hah! The jacket and shoes come off later, along with the "hello, I home." And some think I don't have my priorities in line! Huff Huff! They just don't get it, over their heads me thinks.

I usually get worried about the time when it's..."If you don't turn off that F'ing game right now -I hate it when she calls it a game- ,you will have all the time you can handle to play". This usually occurs about dinner time and again around bed time. In other words...it's power off time or kiss her ##### goodbye. That's when I have to cave to the pressure. So I cave, I am a catch let me tell ya!She just does not understand my needs. I also don't understand why she does not find light foreplay appealing while parked at the threshold for runway 23....something about a heavy flying over my car while having a bit of fun....Perhaps I disclose too much ;-)

I am glad I can bring smiles to faces....reality is usually the funniest thing / truth is stranger than fiction and all that...my reality being no exception.Luckily, the girlfreind unit is usually very understanding of my chronic addiction...but she is not very compatible with long range flights on VATSIM and she comes with a pop-up mother-in-law feature that I can not disable.....In 15 minutes I'll be home....V2....up up and away...Rob.
