FCOM in NG3

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello,

The FCOM provided with NGX is getting increasingly out of date.

Stall and overspeed warnings are checked nowadays (I've seen newer FCOMs and all of them feature this) This used to be done before they completely remade the procedures 2005 but was removed and later was added again.

The WLAN switch is not documented in the FCOM. Yes, it might be a dummy switch but still, for the sake of simulation it would be nice if this would be covered somewhere.

A new supplementary procedure has been added for checking the fuel shutoff valves.

There's more I think but I can't remember it right now.

Will NG3 feature a new FCOM? I realise this is completely up to Boeing but if possible, I think a new FCOM is warranted.

Best regards

Johan Nordqvist

Are you talking about checking the spar valve on engine start?

Correct, the spar valves. But this is just one example.

My point is simply that the included FCOM is old and things are missing. By the time NG3 is available it will be close to 10 years old.

Johan, 

this is not related to PMDG, but a little hint if you want a more or less up-to-date FCOM and FCTM: Google finds everything 😄 😇
