    The real McCoy

    Here is the grand old lady who the DC6 was modelled on. V5-NCG sitting on the tarmac at Eros (FYWE) Windkoek Namibia. I have the pleasure of working with one of the original crew who flew this ship, Capt Alwyn Bierman, know to all in the Namibian aviation industry as Kappi. I named a waypoint after him on one of the FYWE RNP APCH procedures I did in 2016. We have been trying to get the covers removed and get a few more shots internally. If we manage that I will post.

    Gear Pins (Q400)!!

    Print out the checklists that come with the Q400 on A5 sheets on both sides; laminate and then put them where you want them. Thats what we all do

    Gear Pins (Q400)!!

    Hi Ryan. Great choice - great bird!. I flew it in FSX and P3D then had to wait for the P3d v4 version and I am once again a happy camper! Re checklists: print out the ones in the docs directory - they work very well and cover all essential items.eg NWS is switched on after start and left on until shut down. Its a bit late turning it on once you have touched down. Engines shutdown: the condition levers need to come to start feather for at least 30secs before fuel shutoff. This is why I would suggest you print the Majestic checklists and use them. Hope this helps
  5. Ask anyone from Honeywell about opening the 744 FMS to look at it for an upgrade and they blanch visibly then run away screaming. (taht was my experience at a Honeywell conference many years ago :-) ) The 744 box is a very old box - so to emulate RL I imagine thats why PMDG did not give it that capability. Bear in mind the 744 can fly an RNP APCH (LNAV or LNAV/VNAV) but not RNP AR APCH. If the terminology is confusing its because it is changing: RNAV (GNSS) or RNAV (GPS) = RNP APCH (LNAV or LNAV/VNAV) RNAV (RNP) = RNP AR APCH Its just not up to it.

    PMDG and Dynamic Lights

    easy fix: turn your sliders down. Sounds logical really!

    AI traffic for V4

    Gents (and Ladies ) VPilotai has been updated as of last Saturday . Works very well. What I know want to know is can I add more ai aircraft to the standard database - should be possible? Any thoughts?

    Missing part of HUD

    Using the P3D v4 NGX with latest updates through the OC. When I activate the HUD the lower right area of the display seems to be missing as if it is hidden "behind" the glare shield: see attached pic. https://www.dropbox.com/s/jgxu79g50sil3u9/IMG_1506.jpg This is probably not correct. Anyone else having this issue?

    Any plan for MD11 P3D Version?

    yes of course you are correct But it does work in P3D Apparently

    Hi all. Ive searched the forums but found nothing regarding the SUPP NAV DATA and storing created waypoints. I know the FCOM is a Boeing doc however has this feature been activated in the P3D version of the NGX? Regards Rob
  12. Chas I thought this might cause you guys "up there" an issue What I mean by that is - great , fantastic, the best thing since sliced bread, or as smart as paint. In short RNP AR is one the most interesting things I have ever dealt with. Hope this clears that point up? BTW how are the English lessons coming along for all you "up there"
  13. Actually it was Steve Fulton and Hal Anderson who did the pioneering work for Alaskan in Juneau for RNP AR. I had the pleasure of meeting Hal and working with Steve for a number of years when I introduced RNP AR procedures at 15 airports throughout Australia i 2006 when Steve and Hal still owned Naverus before GE got their hands on it. Fantastic times. This AR stuff is mickey mouse and fun to work with and fly.
  14. Vic a quick question you say you run capped fps at 20. Is that thru NI and leave unlimited in P3d or capped at 20 in P3d. Just used these settings and yes, 50% load share across my 2x780s as well.

    Level-D 767 in p3d v2

    Are you installing using the migrator tool? Are you running in legacy or native p3d mode? Do you have registered copy of FSUIPC? Do you re install FSUIPC after loading the aircraft? Do you reboot after installation of LDS? Not sure why you need to get a fresh key for each reinstall. What version LDS are you using (2a?) Try downloading a fresh file from wherever you purchased the LDS7667 and then when you get to the payment go for reinstall. Thats what I did and no problems. BTW I think its a requirement to sign your name to your posts..just in case you get pinged by an admin..
