Ground turn in same sim session

Recommended Posts

When doing a ground turn in the same sim session (ie. without closing/restarting P3D or rebooting windows), will this cause any problems in the next leg of the flight?

I assume for a standard 90 minute freight turn, you'd run the Secure checklist, IRS off, APU off, and establish ground power.  When the pilots come back from lunch (or the bar :) can they then proceed to start things up as if the flight scenario was freshly loaded?  Do you have to clear out the old route and PERF data from the FMC? 

I'm cruising at the moment but given that P3D has been so much more stable I may try the turn without the usual ritual of rebooting windows.

Thanks!

Shouldn't.

Rebooting? Why? At max all you'd need to do is close the sim and re-open it to get the VAS back (prior to V4 anyway).

Thanks, Kyle!  The rebooting is habit from the old and thankfully gone FSX days.

Done it a few times just to test this specific concern.  Same habit from previous sims.  No problems yet in v4.

Sometimes it will work out trying to fly two or more segments in the same session, but once in awhile it goes bad.  Usually the FMS does something weird so I always start a new session.  Just save at the gate and start a new session and load at the gate.  Only takes a couple of minutes at worst.
