HGS combiner

Recommended Posts

 Hi all,

I am new to PMDG NGX.

 

I notice that on the default PMDG NGX 737-800 NGX aircraft there is a HGS combiner facility,

which is not present on the re paint down loads (Ryanair and KLM) Why is this? And is it possible

to insert that facility into re-paints? I had a quick look at the various aircraft Cfg.s, but don't want

to do anything until some advice is forthcoming.

 

 Thanks in advance,  Jaap. 


With regards, Jaap Moot

You can select the HGS option in the aircraft equipment options menu selectable from the FMC CDU. No need to edit anything.

 

You can customise all kinds of equipment options in that way.

And that information is in the Introduction manual which you should really, really read. Otherwise you are missing out on very valuable information about this fantastic simulation you've purchased.

In general, if a PMDG livery doesn't have certain equipment in it's cfg, such as the HGS, that

usually means the airline doesn't use it in the real world. Of course, things like that can change

at the particular airline after the paint was done. And there is nothing to stop one from adding it

for their own sim use.

Kevin, I looked your suggestion up and found it, done it, thanks again.

 

Dave, I'm still going through the manuals, I count eight of them.

I do read the manuals as a rule. But thanks for your response.

 

Mark, I was not aware that some airlines use them and others don't.

However, I now have the choice.

Yeah, lots of info... but, focus on the Intro and Tutorials. I use the boring space between TOC and TOD to lookup stuff in the FCOMs and FCTM and extensive use of Adobe Search feature when ever I have a question.

Yes I'm only referring to the Introduction and the two tutorials when I say you should read/do them. The rest should be considered more for reference, to be used when needed.
