Restart after Save Flight?

Recommended Posts

Guest Armstrang

Being new to the FMC scene, I have a lot of questions. Today's question concerns long range flights. Presently, I use the Simmers Sky (no FMC) MD-11 for the real long ones, but sometimes I task my smaller planes (no FMC) with routes that I cannot complete in one sitting, so I save a lot of flights. When I fire up a flight after saving it, I have to reprogram the RXP GNS machines and restart FSNav. No big deal.I have tested the PSS Dash-8 by saving it and then restarting it, and I found that I had to reprogram the FMC upon restarting the flight. The Dash-8 is no problem, since I will be using it on routes that I complete in one sitting. But, I also have the A340, which I will be using soon, and will be using some or all of the PMDG B747 and MD-11, and the PSS B777 and B757, which I will use on the long "Rhoid Routes". So: With FMC airplanes, is there a way to save flights and restart them without having to reprogram everything? If not, does reprogramming in the air degrade nav or other system performance?Thanks - Steve

the older products such as 777,747 airbus, dash 8 do not provide the ability to fully save a flightthe Airbus series does have a pause at top of descent which allows for continuation of flightsthe Concorde and future products will allow for this featureJohnPSS SUPPORTsupport@phoenix-simulation.co.ukhttp://www.avsim.com/pss/phoenix.jpg
