    Need some help with HGS settings

    Good morning, Thank you Fabo and sorry for the delay due to time zone! So now it is clear. HGS is not a must for autoland. Kind of snake oil!:-) Have a good day. Jean Paul
  2. Good afternoon, I need to understand fully this HGS on the radio panel. In the MODE what means PRI,AIII,IMC,VMC? STBY what means IMC,VMC,AIII ARM RWY and G/S is ok. I want to make fully auto landings using ILS. Thank you for your kind attention, Jean Paul
  3. Thank you for replying.I tried with another phone line at home and it works indeed.Must be something linked to phone line.RakhamToshiba Satellite P4 3.4 Ghz1536 DDR RAM nVidia GeForce FXWinXP Home on the road andPIV 3.4Ghz, 1536 DDR RAM, ATI Radeon 9700 WinXP PROYoke & Pedals CH Products at home
  4. For more than a week I can not access this site. Am I the only one?RegardsRakhamToshiba Satellite P4 3.4 Ghz1536 DDR RAM nVidia GeForce FXWinXP Home on the road andPIV 3.4Ghz, 1536 DDR RAM, ATI Radeon 9700 WinXP PROYoke & Pedals CH Products at home
  5. Hehehe I have heard 8 tons from a Cathay pilot. Although it could be estimated if some 3D programers could evaluate the total surface and get figures for car painting per M2 we could approach a result. 600 lbs seems extremely low compare to over 1000lbs I needed to paint my house only outside.Rakham Toshiba Satellite P4 3.4 Ghz1536 DDR RAM nVidia GeForce FXWinXP Home on the road andPIV 3.4Ghz, 1536 DDR RAM, ATI Radeon 9700 WinXP PROYoke & Pedals CH Products at home
  6. I just wonder if someone knows what is the total weight of paint needed to paint a real 747-400 ready to be delivered.I just guess that any fancy decorations must have a some impact on flight cost, no?RakhamToshiba Satellite P4 3.4 Ghz1536 DDR RAM nVidia GeForce FXWinXP Home on the road andPIV 3.4Ghz, 1536 DDR RAM, ATI Radeon 9700 WinXP PROYoke & Pedals CH Products at home

    SIDS and STARS

    Good morning,Thank you both for your kind attention. I will then continue to use them and perhaps start to seriously learn how to make my own ones based upon tutorial from Terry Yingling.RegardsRakhamToshiba Satellite P4 3.4 Ghz1536 DDR RAM nVidia GeForce FXWinXP Home on the road andPIV 3.4Ghz, 1536 DDR RAM, ATI Radeon 9700 WinXP PROYoke & Pedals CH Products at home

    SIDS and STARS

    Good evening.My question is: are all those sids and stars(ready for the FMC's) we can download on avsim, navdata and some other places exactly the same ones that real ailiners are using on a daily basis like the ones from Jeppesen?Or are they "adapted" for the flight simulator?Thanks and regardsRakham Toshiba Satellite P4 3.4 Ghz1536 DDR RAM nVidia GeForce FXWinXP Home on the road andPIV 3.4Ghz, 1536 DDR RAM, ATI Radeon 9700 WinXP PROYoke & Pedals CH Products at home

    747-400 cruise altitude

    Good evening,And the answer is.....How heavy?RE: Maximum & Optimum Cruise Altitudes table PMDG 2-9.Correct?RakhamToshiba Satellite P4 3.4 Ghz1536 DDR RAM nVidia GeForce FXWinXP Home on the road andPIV 3.4Ghz, 1536 DDR RAM, ATI Radeon 9700 WinXP PROYoke & Pedals CH Products at home
  11. Good morning,I would like to know if there is a kind of mathematical rule to find optimum cruising altitude for any particular flight?In other words, how do I decide with FSBuild what will be my altitude to enter for a specific flight?For instance what would be cruising alt between EBBR and LEMD 730 nm compared to WIII-YSSY 2997 nm?Thanks and regardsRakhamToshiba Satellite P4 3.4 Ghz1536 DDR RAM nVidia GeForce FXWinXP Home on the road andPIV 3.4Ghz, 1536 DDR RAM, ATI Radeon 9700 WinXP PROYoke & Pedals CH Products at home

    FMC/FL/Speed during cruise

    Good morning,Ok Randy thanks for your time and your help. I understand now.RegardsRakhamToshiba Satellite P4 3.4 Ghz1536 DDR RAM nVidia GeForce FXWinXP Home on the road andPIV 3.4Ghz, 1536 DDR RAM, ATI Radeon 9700 WinXP PROYoke & Pedals CH Products at home

    FMC/FL/Speed during cruise

    Yes this is correct. In fact I found this about 30 minutes after posting my message.:-(But now would'nt this be a problem with traffic and ATC since OPT is about 4-5000 feet below MAX ALT?I can already hear the ATC... Sir........:-)RakhamToshiba Satellite P4 3.4 Ghz1536 DDR RAM nVidia GeForce FXWinXP Home on the road andPIV 3.4Ghz, 1536 DDR RAM, ATI Radeon 9700 WinXP PROYoke & Pedals CH Products at home
  14. Good morning,I just wnated to know from pilots if this is realistic to do. In order not to loose so much speed in full A/P mode, I enter FMC with VNAV to ECON CRZ page 2/3.I find OPT FLxxx and MAX FLyyyI disconnect VNAV on MCP and enter OPT FL indicated into FMC.I noticed I keep much higher speed and increase steadily the FL.Is this a correct way to do it?RegardsRakhamToshiba Satellite P4 3.4 Ghz1536 DDR RAM nVidia GeForce FXWinXP Home on the road andPIV 3.4Ghz, 1536 DDR RAM, ATI Radeon 9700 WinXP PROYoke & Pedals CH Products at home

    747-400 Checklists

    Good morning Michael. I have tried your checklist on a cold and dark but on the pre-flight list you write EEC Switches Norm. On my panel the EEC remain dark and will only show NORM after I put Exter power on. How comes?Otherwise I like your presentation, I printed it and laminated it. Very handy.ThanksRakhamToshiba Satellite P4 3.4 Ghz1536 DDR RAM nVidia GeForce FXWinXP Home on the road andPIV 3.4Ghz, 1536 DDR RAM, ATI Radeon 9700 WinXP PROYoke & Pedals CH Products at home
