SP1 Beta Polar Flight (Photos)

Recommended Posts

Some photos I took today during my OMDB>KDFW flight across the North Pole. Can see some features, fixes SP1 brings in the photos too! My first time ever going across the Pole - was fun! We're still enroute as I post this, tiring...  :lol: Enjoy!

Thanks Luke. Hope to see more. Atleast 1 pic everyday or some text regarding how fixes are solved in sp1. Like tell about 1 problem faced previously and after fixes in sp1 how it is like for example clock in Pfd.

Definitely not about new features as you said earlier like it should come from pmdg.

Cheers man.

Really nice pictures. 

Watch your fuel temperature over there, it is -60C today over ABERI  :rolleyes:

I was thinking there for awhile that the betas were under a rule not to post pics since I haven't seen new ones in awhile.  Very nice.  I love the new stuff I'm seeing!  I'm not sure if that stuff was always there in our version, or if these are new features, but seeing your photos always reminds me to slow down and read the manual during long hauls (scandi will approve), and enjoy the systems of what you paid for instead of just "doing the flight".  

 

I'm taking my PPL/CPL and it's funny that by watching how others fly their simulated dream aircraft to fly in the RW you can see just how deep certain pilots on here will go. For instance, you.  You love this type so very much, and in your screenies we get to see you utilizing every single tool at your disposal during a flight, where some might just export route, import, set an alternate (if that) and press TOGA (if that) and call it a day.  You take this bird to the extent of simulation, and I'm pretty sure that's why you're a beta.  FS9/FSX and all the time I've spent (and money) on it over the many years I think actually DOES help with RW PPL/CPL training.  You just need to do it by the book and to the full extent of what the sim will allow every single time though.  You can't half-&@($* it or those crutches will follow you to the RW.  That's what I like about your images.  They're all pretty damn consistent, and all pretty damn realistic.

 

Mind you, flying the T7 around for hours won't really help you pass your exams (MAYBE it could help with your type rating), but I think you know what I mean.  

 

What I'm really trying to say though is...GIVE US MORE SCREENIES!!!  Good job!

If you find any bad weather enroute, could you post some more pics with the radar in action?

Thanks!

Which things are new? I can see this grid thing I don't know what is, but why can't you say what to look for?!

Grid heading is in the RTM. Not new, It shows up after a certain high latitude.

 

The chronometer is built into the pfd

 

The heading bug looks different

 

Wxr is in operation

 

Circular thing in the top right of the N.D. in the second screenshot.

Hi,

 

Great shots, and some interesting looking new features!

 

I did a Polar flight last week, crossing N90, and after it passed the waypoint, it proceeded to fly in circles around the north pole until I took over with heading. Has this issue been addressed with Pole transit logic?

 

Best regards,

Robin.

It's kind of a curse with FSX and polar flying. Hate to use this dreaded term... FSX limitation.

Hmm - this issue is not an FSX limitation - it is firmly in the realm of the aircraft and how it is programmed.

 

Best regards,

It definitely can.  I had a first thought to hit the B key when I was on my PPL long solo XC years back...and then I realized I wasn't in the sim.

If cruise bores you enough to tears such that you start studying, it just might help.

 

When I was in college, the original PMDG 744 did that for me.  My computer had only about enough juice to run FS9, so running the sim forced me to hit the books instead of messing around online.

amazing pics.Some questions!!  :lol: 

-How easy is to fly polar routes in fsx?Are there any limitations??

 

-Does the ASNext cover the polar?

 

-Does the PFPX have polar routes,flex etc?

If anyone has a tutorial flight for polar routes in fsx send me  B)  :rolleyes:

1. Don't know about Sp1, but the plane starts to S-turn near the pole in LNAV. You'll have to fly over the pole in heading select. Not the whole polar ice cap, just when you're within 100nm from NPOLE 

 

2. Yes

 

3. PFPX  does polar routes just fine.

Hello David.Thank you very much.So when i am going to fly a polar route, my flight plan should be near the North Pole

like Luke gave us here  ^_^  (3 and 4 image)
