Saving a flight

Recommended Posts

Last night I was doing a 702 mi. flight between CYHZ and KDCA (Reagen payware) in a PMDG 737. About half way through I heard a dinging noise about every 15 seconds which is an indication that an OOM is about to occur. I heard that if you save a flight you can go back later and continue the flight so I saved it. Today I opened FSX and clicked on the save button and later the load button and I got nothing.

 What's the proper procedure in saving a flight?

Just go into the menu, click save and give it a name - that's it. If you have full fsuipc you can set to autosave every x minutes, which can be useful. Then when you load up just click on load, choose your flight and after the NGX initialises you are going.

 

I use Radar Contact, so I load up a default flight first then the old one through RC. I do find with the NGX you are best saving at cruise alt (which is normally ok, although had a couple of bad loads). If you do it on the descent or worse at low altitude things can go very wrong...
