  2. Hi, I was running Pilot2ATC without problem until I moved my machine to another domain and migrated my user account accordingly. Since then, I get the following error when starting P2ATC: Unable to initialize Database. An exception has been raised that is likely due to a transient failure... The underlying provider failed on open. After this error, P2ATC starts, but no airports are shown. I already uninstalled and reinstalled P2ATC but no change. When I login with another account, I can start P2ATC with no error, but restricted as trial license. I suspect, that there is some old connection string / credentials stored somewhere which is no longer valid. But I don't know how to get rid of it. Can someone help? Thanks Ulrich

  4. FSWidgets is pleased to release a new X-Plane-exclusive product! XTaws for Windows is an advanced simulated TAWS (Terrain Awareness Warning System) and PFD (Primary Flight Display) avionics app, designed exclusively for X-Plane 11 or 10 (64 bit only). It displays a synthetic colour-coded 2D/3D image of approaching terrain with visual and aural warnings of imminent collision, as determined by continual FLTA (Forward Looking Terrain Avoidance). Unlike a traditional panel gauge, XTaws is a standalone app which runs as a separate process and can be used with any aircraft model. The terrain data is read directly from X-Plane, so no need for a separate local or online terrain database! It can also be run on one platform with the simulator on a different platform (e.g. X-Plane running on Mac, XTaws running on Windows, etc.), offloading the work and screen space to a spare desktop or laptop. Check out full details, screenshots and grab the free demo here: XTaws for Windows

  6. The Duchess is a four-seater, twin-engine T-tail aircraft equipped with a retractable tricycle landing gear and two 180hp four-cylinder engines fitted with constant-speed propellers. Its IFR-capable avionics suite, excellent handling characteristics and counter-rotating propellers make it an ideal aircraft for multi-engine flight training and the perfect step up from single-engine aircraft such as the PA-28. A cruise speed of 155 knots, a range of 780 nautical miles and a service ceiling of 20,000ft also make it a very capable touring aircraft. Detailed Description MODEL • Accurately modelled Duchess, built using real-world aircraft plans and comprehensive photography of the real aircraft • Numerous animations including passenger and baggage doors, storm window, sun visors and engine exhausts • HD textures are used to produce the highest possible texture clarity • Bump and specular mapping used throughout the aircraft to produce a truly 3D feel • Authentic labelling and placards based on those found in the real aircraft COCKPIT • A truly 3D virtual cockpit right down to accurately modelled seat belts and screw heads - every instrument is constructed fully in 3D with smooth animations • Authentic RPM gauge needle ‘wobble’ • Cockpit textures feature wear and tear based on reference photos taken in the real aircraft to produce an authentic environment • A procedurally correct aircraft with cold & dark starts • Fully functional and comprehensive IFR-capable avionics fit including: - KX 165 COM/NAV 2 radio - KR 87 ADF receiver - KT 76A transponder unit - Century IV autopilot - HSI and ADF gauges - KDI DME indicator with HOLD functionality CUSTOM-CODED AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS • Engine management • Electrical system (battery, alternators, functional circuit breakers) • Fuel system (fuel pumps, selectors, crossfeed) • Hydraulic/landing gear system (including emergency extension) • Century IV autopilot • Environmental (cabin heating/ventilation controls) PAINT SCHEMES The Duchess is supplied in nine paint schemes: • G-BZRT (UK) • G-GCCL (UK) • G-BNYO (UK) • G-WACJ (UK) • N671R (USA) • D-GIGY (Germany) • F-GCLJ (France) • C-GTYG (Canada) • EC-INC (Spain) SOUNDS Authentic sound set from Turbine Sound Studios.

  7. Autopilot could be better Throttle detent noises are annoying Very sensitive to controls when taxiing Could do with a proper tutorial flight rather than a long checklist A better paint kit!

    Yes, I guess it would be a bit too much to ask for if they had finally pulled the rabbit out of the hat with a more outstanding contribution. They may not be dedicated to the longer development cycle that we have come to expect from e.g. PMDG, but with that said I can think of at least one product which seems to have dragged on for a long while with no significant change in its status

    New Release expected Today!

    Carenado makes an arcade product. They do not make a simulator quality one. Every plane I've bought from them has something(s) integral omitted, as if it's done on purpose. They've been enabled so long by people who do product reviews, that obviously, they don't care (if they ever did), and they'll crank out the new toy with all it's short-comings, then move on to the next one. As for fixing or updating the short-comings, in their own words: "It's not a priority." The negative feedback of Carenado can be summed up: They could be great, but choose to be mediocre.

    Few quirks, but she looks and sounds good!

    Very nice external appearances, but are there any significant problems?

    Do they ever fix the ones they have already released and support them my first and only purchase not good and will be my last.
  18. Hello jabloomf1230, first of all: thank you for your help! I just started as suggested from you VoxATC Kansas City to Minneapolis St Paul Intl IFR. until now, my intalled voxatx is doing pretty much the same as described in the tutorial documentation. I am now mid fligh, before mason city transition (mcw) I will confirm the rest of the flight plan as soon as land at KMSP. benams1

    New Release expected Today!

    I have heard negative feedback about Carenado products which has put me off even thinking about purchasing, but this one catches my eye. I have heard that the FMS on some Carenado products is not a very complete product (this one boasts a UNS-1 FMS - is this the same that is used in other Carenado products?). Also, does anyone know if it has weather radar?

    FPS in V4.5 (waiting for a fix)

    Yea, it depends of the areas, but keeping the autogen in mid low levels helps a lot, specially with sttuters. Not sure where FSELITE got my comment, I think I was helping someone in one of the Facebook groups and my advise helped one of the users, as you know I give advice to each person based on their current needs and system. For example if someone tells me is using ORBX TE GB with 4.5, there is very little chance keeping the autogen in the middle will help given the amount of objects this addon has. But there you go, now that became apparently the official work around 🤔 Regards Simbol

    FPS in V4.5 (waiting for a fix)

    Agree with simbol Pete, very well said. I too started with Bruce's original and the distance now from FSX is huge. 64 bit alone makes it a new sim IMHO.

    Well said Pete 🙂
  23. This has nothing to do with PTA. It has always been that way with a low standing sun and cloud shadows enabled. Only workaround is to turn off the cloud shadows during dawn and dusk.

    New Release expected Today!

    Hi. Happy Easter everyone. Please, can someone advise me why even Carenado refer to an ATR 42-500 as an AR 42-500 ? At first I was confused as I'm very familiar with the real aircraft and shape but I've worked in aviation, hands on with aircraft now for 55 years, owned a Sea Vampire ex RAN FAA so I'm knowledgeable to an extent and I was not aware of an AR anything. Looking forward to mystery being resolved for me. Google and Wiki let me down too re an aircraft type referred to as an AR ....
