747-400x Lesson 1 - Aircraft Orientation

Recommended Posts

When I load Type Certificate Lesson 1 for the 744x the aircraft appears on the Boeing ramp at right angles to the other parked aircraft. I am also using MyTrafficX. The AI aircraft are parked with their noses facing the runway whereas the PMDG 744 is sitting in among them parallel to the runway. Looks a bit untidy, especially when another aircraft comes and parks itself through my nose!Am I correctly oriented on the ramp? What is the number of the parking bay I should be in if I want to enter my location to see if that changes things?Cheers,Duncan Woodhouse

I wouldn't worry about it. The AFCAD for that airport determins how parking spots are orientated, and I think (guessing) the saved flight refers simply to a parking spot. The IRS will be set to GPS coordinates so this isn't an issue either. Move on the learning the aircraft and enjoy.
