  1. Just a quick question, Stock out of the box xplane 11 airport KPVD. flew here with pilot2ATC and it worked great. Got the to airport, selected "Info" and saw that the realworld cargo ramps was called 'Park15'. There are a series of this type at the airport. I requested to taxi to 'park15' and got no response. Requested '15' and got issued instructions to the small gate. Can it only be a number? or a single letter with a number? Question: what is the logic used for P2A to recognize a gate/ramp? Thanks

    PMDG Speculated Future Releases ?

    I wish they would work on the Dash8 product, at any level. There are simply no large commercial prop planes since the ATR by Dreamworks 6 years ago.

    757, soon?

    What I have seen on the PMDG forum I think is excellent. A great company interacting with the general public on a general forum in a direct an concise way. What I see here is a closed forum (unless you purchase their product) with only rare minor comments on a product that was announced 6 years ago. I have to agree with the above, 6 years is not a software development cycle for a product of this scope. This software should have simply never been stated by the company as 'coming soon' or even coming at all, but simply a 'not in production' comment and put to sleep. That way when they actually do get within 12 months of release - only then could a statement be made.Personally, I feel this will not see the light of day for FSX as the team once again 're-tools' for MS Flight and another 5 years. Lets just agree and simply say from this point forward...'not in development'

    great, count me in as I have abandoned FSX
  6. Now that gentlemen is what is called a REVIEW!!!I have read many of them here and this one hits not only all the major points but is clear, very well organized and in depth. I cant tell you how many reveiws of photoscenery I have seen, yet I always have the same question -'what's it look like at the edge??' plus many others. Again, this one has all of them.Congratulations, an excellent jobp.s. I dont have FSX but I cant believe that Lake Mead (the larges man made lake in the world) can not be seen. That must be a glitch in the reviews default install.

    PMDG 747 cost indexes

    interestingwhat are the units for the x y axis? (minutes? hours? tons?)also, after years of using the 747 I am still unsure as to what the max CI you can place in the PGDM FMC. different max numbers are located at different locations in the manualthanks for posting though
  8. you have on your front page an article speaking of Pro Flight Emulator with the suggestion of visiting this forum. However there is no link nor is there a Pro Flight Emulator forum (at least I could not find it)did I miss it? I assume this is a payware product

    Questions for Helicopter Pilots

    1. go to hoover control and download the Bell 412 that they produced2. place your realism slider setting (FS pulldown menu) to the far left3. make sure you have some type of throttle hardware, toggle the throttle function in the settings menu to 'reverse' - this will act as the helios collectivehave fun

    FSNavigator Closing

    true it is sad...What I find more intersting is that you, Ernie - a developer of a compeating product, expresses a disapointment also. My respect for you just went up a few notches (pretty high to begin with), well done Ernie.happy holidays.

    Sale on - Captainsim 24hours

    yep, that is the tutorial that I mentioned in my original post.however, that only deals with use of external power. I have followed that to the best of my ablility for non-external power starting, but when I get to where I press the start button - nothing happens.are you able to start without the use of external power?if so I would love to start a dialog with you on exactly what steps you take to acheive this
