Heading is set incorrectly press D to set the heading.

Recommended Posts

Gentlemen / Ladies,I am flying PSS Concorde by way of tutorial 3,I keep getting a flashing message from Fs 2004 that, "the heading is set incorectly press D to set" . Also when setting the radio altimeter to 500 feet for initial climb as mentioned in the tutorial, a message flashes which read "your altimeter is set incorrectly press B to set.Please let me know how to set this tutorial flight so that the above messages don't show up through Fs 2004.Thanking you,Best Regards,Aftab.

Hello John,I have turn the display tips off and there are no more messages comming through fs during tutorial 3,thanks. Can you tell me how to adjust the center of gravity during tutorial 3, as the aircraft nears New York, the center of gravity liights keep flashing on the main panel, also the climb rate is still slow and the altimeter reads 57,000 feet still not near 58,000 feet as described in the tutorial 3.Thanking you,Best regards,Aftab.

Hello John,With VFE engaged I still have to transfer fuel through different tanks?, if at all, and how to verify through the indicator wether the fuel needs to be transfered to the front, rear or center tanks.Thanking You,Best Regards,Aftab.

Hello John, Thank you very much for the detailed insructions on how to transfer fuel through different tank to maintain the center of gravity, and monitoring the same. Earlier I have done two different PSS concorde 3 tutor flights, both with VFE in operation, in one flights the CG lights went off by itself after a short while, in the other flight the light flashed on and off occasionally but never went out completley.I will do another flight sometime and see if the light does not come on as it was with your Concorde 3 tutor flight. Thanking You,Best RegardsAftab.
