FDC File for Dash 8-300

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,I was wondering if anyone who uses Flight Deck Companion might have a profile created for Oleksiy's Dash 8-300? If not, where might I find the necessary performance info in order to create the performance file? I don't think that this information is included in the documentation is it? I know that Oleksiy included a pdf checklist, but I can't recall seeing any performance data (ie: v-speeds, flap speeds, etc) Too bad the POH hasn't been released for PSS's Dash. I'm sure all the info I need would be in that!Thanks in advance,Gord NoseworthyNewfoundland, Canada (CYYT)

Hi Gord,I'm am not aware of anyone creating a performance/checklist file for the Dash 8 for use with FDC. You can gather some information for creating a performance/checklist by looking at the aircraft.cfg file. This will often provide performance information that you can use. You might want to also check various websites that contain real aircraft performance information such as www.airliners.net One final thought, I might suggest making a post on the Flight Deck Companion forum and there may be a user there that has created a performance/checklist file but has not uploaded them as of yet.Good luck and let us know how you get along.Have Fun,Jim :-waveFDC Team Member

Hi Gord and Tim!I have created "Beta" FDC files for oleksiys dash8. Have tried to use the default checklist callouts, but still find some essentials missing in FDC (essential to dash8 I mean).Have received performance data from Norwegian Airline company, Wideroe, so its pretty much only the checklist left. When I am happy with theese files, I will upload them to the FDC library here at AVSIM. rgdFreddy WilhelmsenOperator - WIF001Virtual WideroeHttp://www.virtualwideroe.com

Thanks Freddy!Looking forward to your file. I was playing around with the checklists the other night also, and compared to Oleksiy's checklists, I too noticed that there were a few essential items missing from FDC. I wonder is it possible to add items to FDC? Would be a nice option if not. That way we could taylor the lists to match it's real world counterpart.In any event, glad to hear there's an FDC file on the way for the Dash 8!Regards,Gord NoseworthyNewfoundland, Canada (CYYT)
