GPWS "60" Callout

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have recently set up P3Dv4 and in turn purchased the 747 QOTS 2 to go with it.

As a fan of somewhat difficult approaches one of my must-haves for Flight Simming has always been the old Hong Kong Kai Tak airport, and as an extra step to try and add realism to it I am looking to add the old "60" callout that Cathay Pacific aircraft used to have on their GPWS back when Kai Tak was still operational.

From looking at the option .inis I can find the options for the callouts, however "60" does not appear to be one that is available.

Has anyone here looked into a potential work around for this with regards to potentially adding the callout in? I would be happy to hear if anybody has found a solution.

You'd be better off submitting a support ticket for this to see what they say since this is something they would have to add into the plane in order for it to be functional. That said, they're going to want a source for this.

The 60' callout is a famous option requested by Cathay Pacific (when they flew into Kai Tak). You can hear it just after 4:00 in this YouTube video:

Ok, will have a look at submitting it at some point.

As per the source there are a number of videos of it including the one above.

Thanks,

Yes, tell them that. I can't do anything about it, so telling me won't solve anything.
