MadDog MD 80 Get Reading, get Prepar-ed!

Recommended Posts

I've gone through all the youtube video tutorials and made a crib PDF That should get us all started.

Think of it as a beta, taxi in > it's not finished but all the info from the tutorials is all here. I will do a full polished version when out.

Its a page on my work web if you wonder why link looks odd

Your welcome, I do them for myself for every aircraft I fly but after spending 4 hours doing this I thought it would help others. It's painful taking notes of videos. Then writing it all.

I can imagine, it will be a great resource when we’re all trying to relearn how to fly her:biggrin:

Thank You for this.  Looking forward to see this bird being finally released on P3D.

Nice document indeed, a lot to do :-).

Bit too much for one pilot alone. Much recommended to get FS2Crew as well. Just great to do your preparation part, and during that hear all the bells and whistles while your Copilot does his/her part.

Thanks David. I hope we get it this week or the next. We haven't got any update for release and it hurts to wait...

Cheers, Rob.

Haven't checked it out yet as I'm away but does it have a checklist for cold/dark to arrival and shutdown?

I just went through the checklist and see several things which aren't technically correct - but let me say how much I love the enthusiasm - I REALLY DO!  This aircraft deserves it!

We presently have two people on the team making videos that will be released with the product, and I'm going to do a Quick Start Up and Quick Turn Around video for those who just want to get the bird up.  I haven't checked those existing videos in the past week or so, but when I first checked the first video I found important errors (I stopped there) but I haven't checked to see if they have been fixed. The videos coming out with the aircraft should be spot on.

Best wishes.

Do you plan to make another uSimPit video to reflect the changes? On your last pit video I ordered the mini USB keyboards you use.

If you have any detailed information on SOP could you please send it to me.

If anyone have anything as a reference please PM it so I can get to work on getting this right ASAP 

I used what has been given to us so far.

Thanks.

Some News,

I've done a lot of digging around and now have a full set of manuals.  QRH alone is 460 pagers.

So will get to work.

EDIT: I can't write a fully correct one until I get the aircraft as I have no idear how much is modeled and not. Also what we need to do and what is not needed.

So here you are,

Normal procedures start page 86 http://www.limegallery.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/MD-88-and-90-Operations-Manual-Vol-1.pdf

QRH http://www.limegallery.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/MD-88-and-90-QRH.pdf

Normal Checklist http://www.limegallery.co.uk/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/MD-88-and-90-Normal-Checklist.pdf

Excellent resource.

Is it possible on P.15, after 'Speed', to put a range or some indication of what the approach speed should be [Granted it varies with weight & other factors], but its something  I sometimes have difficulty finding.

My version will no doubt change a lot, it’s just a first draft from all the videos.

You have have the full manual with everything in it.

I will put it altogether for myself and then share it. But I now need the release.

Too bad it has taken so long all the airlines have retired or cut their fleets. I like to fly real routes in real time so I'll have to put this on a wish list for some time later next year. too many airplanes to fly not enough time or money.

Like you I like to fly in real time. Luckily I like flying for Delta so I have until the end of 2020 before they phase out all the MD’s.

hi everyone, I would like to share a handsheet I'v done back in the days for the (soon legacy) Leonardo MD80 : https://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?DLID=175788

the idea was to create something  something visual so you can quickly find the area of the cockpit where the next action is.

It is based on several FCOM, LSH documentations and several tutorials and real world cockpit videos founded on the web at the time.

here is a link to a bunch of real world videos where you can see a lot of SAS SOP's : https://www.youtube.com/user/mmmpetersen/videos?query=md80

Did you ever finish this checklist. It has helped me a lot since the MadDog has been released.

I forgot it’s still there,

lts been redone about 5 times, and am doing another version today, every time I fly the maddog I see its mistakes. 

Thats was like an alpha build am now starting to beta test lol.

I will up date it fully when am happy, that could be a few weeks.

Or I could do a PMDG and say “soon”

I would like to add the TO Warning procedure. :)

"This check is mandatory and must be carried out before the first engine start before every flight. Before engine start, and with power on the aircraft: - Move both throttles toward full forward position and observe takeoff warning  sound"  (SAS Flight Ops Manual)

Also check OUTFLOW VALVE moving to CLOSE position, and again to OPEN when throttles are retarded to IDLE. It's the yellow/black wheel on the pedestal.


Keep it up, nicely done :)
