UK/Europe tutorials

Recommended Posts

Can anyone suggest any UK/Europe tutorials for PMDG 737NGX?

 

I've done the two tutorials that come with the software, and also found the Fred Clausen and Timothy Metzinger tutorials (which are US-based).  I'd like to find some more UK and Europe tutorials too - although flying the aircraft is unrelated to location, I'd like to use the tutorials to become more familiar with airways, waypoints, airports, etc in the Europe and I'm not quite ready to just experiment myself yet!

You can use the same tutorials, you've already got. Just create a new flightplan and swap the weights, take-off data and route specific data from the exsisting tutorial route, with the data from the new route. The procedures will stay the same, only the waypoints, weights and take-off data will change and you can find those on the flightplan.

I recommend some Justplanes videos for purchase if you desire a European ops might be best to see them operate in real life. Norwegian have great dvd's one I think is in high def.

Thanks both.

 

Maarten - by flightplan do you mean the plan as entered in the FMC, or is there some additional software I can use to help with planning e.g. to work out what waypoints to use?

 

777200lrf - could you send more details of the Norwegian DVDs, if that is allowed on the forum?  They sound quite useful.

If you need flight planning software to help you identify valid routes, you might want to give 

 

http://www.simbrief.com/home/?page=home

 

It's free of charge and will identify realistic routes for many airport pairs. For example, I just input the flight EGKK to EDDM and it identified the following route:

 

DVR8M DVR UL9 KONAN UL607 REMBA LIRSU UZ210 NOSPA UL984 RUDUS T109 HAREM T104 ANORA ANOR2A

 

simBrief all provides for a real world route checking option through euroFPL. simBrief will also provide you with a full-fledged airline specific (according to the author) flight briefing, a link to a SkyVector map, and even a PMDG compatible company route that you can load into the MCDU.

 

There is also a payware product, PFPX, that does similar things and probably more. You can take your pick.

If you want routes within the uk and routes as far as exit points - then just take a look at the NATS SRD document over HERE

 

PFPX is a great piece of software for planning - and it can import the nats SRD to help it get routes right.

 

With regards to some other good european tutorials of using the PMDG sim, then a guy called sky surfer did some youtube videos using the sim, he hasn't posted for some time, but he's a real world NG driver, so some quite interesting information from him on his videos and various airports he did flights in and out of on his videos.
