  1. Has the PFD been fixed and now includes the Flight Path Vector? I don't have MSFS2020 but as real world pilot flying a G1000 Cirrus this was the first glaring omission that I could see from some videos and/or pics. Also are the missed approaches programmed in (part of the database)? Can you fly them as with the real unit? If a leg calls for fixed HDG is it going to hold this heading? If a leg calls for certain altitude to be reached before a turn, does it work?
  2. I suspect quite a few items are wrong about this simulation (I don't have FS2020 yet), first thing which is very obvious that is wong is the lack of the Flight Path Vector on the PFD. Pilots use it very frequently, I use it during turns or for landing, great tool but clearly it is missing from this implementation.
  3. Pilots are taught to use VS only for descents. FLC is used for climbs.
  4. Absolutely correct, let someone else come up with an equivalent product and sell if for 1/2 of PMDG price and he/she will be a hero of this forum. Any volunteers? Any other arguments about 'fair' pricing are nonsensical.
  5. Sorry, I was talking about a real G1000 unit, whether this simulation is complete or correct, have no idea.
  6. It is actually very refreshing that 2.7 billion USD was spent on this rover, all the social programs in the US (not counting the social security benefits) cost roughy as much as 1500 of those rovers. Thank you NASA for at least giving us something that is worth the money.
  7. Absolutely true, I actually once got lost over LA at night, the visibility was perfect and I was navigating VFR (no GPS yet) and failed to see lights of my destination airport - Burbank. The surrounding city lights simply overpowered any airport lighting, could not see runway or airport beacon. Had to land at wrong airport (El Monte) and this time with the help of controllers I was able to find my destination. Even though the controller told me Burbank should be 3 miles at 12 o'clock I still could not be 100% sure I actually had airport in sight. Did not have problems finding other (even small) airports at night which were far from major towns.
  8. For a change nice someone is looking forward to a GA aircraft rather than a million pound behemoth. 😉
  9. Spot on. I think the original post is totally useless, whipping up some unnecessary hysteria. This is what happens when you have too much time sitting behind your computer.
  10. But we have been over this many times, it is done for the benefit of those who either have no internet at all or have a very slow one. Yes, there are such people even in otherwise highly developed countries, some of them were even vocal on this forum.
  11. Are you a real A320 pilot? Pardon me but I have some doubts reading your post. Every pilot knows that consumer based simulation products do not count for currency. There is no way you could log it. I am a lowly Cirrus pilot and I could possibly turn it into a BATD and got approval from FAA but that would cost me dearly and would have to purchase thousands of $$ worth of hardware controls. But I fly Part 91 and you are Part 121 (per FAA) so for you the threshold of what is loggable is much higher.
  12. What kind of "trainer"?? Do you know what kind of trainers real pilots use? They certainly do not rely on updated satellite imagery, in fact the scenery (if any) they offer is not even close to what this MSFS offers. There is no such thing as "fully VFR capable" trainer regardless what kind of pilot you are. Please learn about real life pilot's training, make a trip to your local GA airport. My FBO has a couple expensive flight trainers but I am afraid you would be very disappointed...
  13. But you get Shock Ultra aircraft with ridiculously low speed of like 18 mph, high wing, ideal platform to view the scenery low and super slow. it is actually almost better than a helicopter.
  14. Yeah, I think you are onto something, no failures, no abnormal conditions, etc. It should simplify development a lot.
