You weren't on VATSIM trying to fly out of IAD earlier, were you?

 

And I'm not sure if this affects anything in the sim, but did you have the pitot covers still on (selected via the GROUND CONNECTIONS menus)? That would definitely do it.

Gotcha - I was the UAL 738 taxiing out on Delta as you were returning. Just heard it still isn't working for you. Do you have FSUIPC installed? That might by the issue. I can't think of anything else at the moment. Try moving the FSUIPC.ini to the desktop (out of the FSX folder) to have it rebuild another one just to see if that fixes it.

Glad it worked.

 

I actually quit the flight in order to log back in as a controller to support the WorldFlight group's fly-in at RDU.

 

do you guys get alot of controllers over in the USA on vatsim?

 

Depends on the area. NY, Washington, Miami and Southern California are usually pretty well staffed. Seattle is also usually on.
