NGX Option request for future SP

Recommended Posts

Dear PMDG!

 

I know there is a ton of options available on the real NG. I Just thought that these two would be great to have! At least they are on my wishlist for future sp's :)

 

1. The first:

CDU "pre-flight Complete" message on take-off page after CDU preflight is complete.

This option would be very handy especially for users not used to programming the FMC. It would be great to have this line showing that CDU preflight is completed.

 

2. The second:

The ability to show the GPS and IRS positions on the ND. This would be fun to see how the IRS and GPS positions differ from the computed FMC position. Again it would be fun to see after a longer flight how much the IRS's have driftet compaired to the GPS and again compared to the actual FMC position!

 

 

Well just a few options I would like to see!

 

 

Ps. Both options are shown in the video below. The preflight message at. 3:30, and the Position option at around 7:20

Number 2 is already included, number 1 is not neede if I recall correctly. There's an other way to see at a glance your preflight is completed for the FMS... Not sure how though. I believe it has to do with INDEX being at LSK 6L, instead of the page you haven't completed yet.

IIRC PREFLIGHT COMPLETED message has been gotten rid of in some FMC software update. It simply is not there in 10.8A anymore.

 

You can show position indication on the NGX ND. Look at IRS pos after 3 hours flight, they will show a nice distance between them.

A discrepancy (very minor) -

 

1. on the DES page of the CDU/FMC, the target speed reads in this order on the ngx - SPEED/ .MACH ....... and on our real 738's, it reads .MACH/SPEED .

 

Feel free to confirm or dismiss my nit picking.
