Non-Normal Ecl Is Amazing!

Recommended Posts

Guys, hats off to PMDG for sure on this one!  Suffered a R engine fire at 3500ft on takeoff, as I was scrambling to find the QRH on my tablet, I remembered the non-normal ECL...

 

As soon as I clicked CHKL, I was on the right page, with everything that got automatically checked as I performed the actions, and before I knew it, I was leveled at 6000ft with the fire out.  My single Saitek quadrant brought only the R lever to idle, and it handled extremely well when I hand flew the approach back to the airport.

 

I just want to say how much I am in awe with this aircraft.  PMDG sure got a new customer - I'll buy the NGX as soon as the new features are ported over, and even if I wouldn't have considered the 747, I will definitely buy it now.

 

Another 77W is being prepped, still have 350 people to cross the pond with, back to the skies!
