  1. Hi,No one here seems to have an updated Navigraph database. I searched the Feelthere support forum and I realize that the database was originally developed for other Feelthere aircrafts and the procedures (SIDs/STARs) do not seem to work for the Airbus series.I also noticed that Navigraph has now withdrawn their FMS Data service for the Wilco/Feelthere Airbus series.However, if you like me need the SIDs and STARs for online flying there is a workaround. If you use a flight-planning program, which has procedures and an export facility to FS9 (like FS Navigator or FlightSim Commander), you can then import the FS flightplan to the Airbus via the MCDU data page. Cheers,Bert
  2. Hi Bryan,I know that the nav database is not your responsibility. I thought that you should confirm that this scenario should work with the original nav database, and that the reason for this problem must be something else.I just could not believe that Wilco/Feelthere released the Airbus with a nav database that did not work.I realise that I can bye updated databases from Navigraph, but will that cure this problem? Perhaps someone who uses their latest database can confirm.Cheers,Bert
  3. Bryan,I just bought the CD version of the Airbus Series and your FS2Crew add-on.When following your tutorial I seem to have a problem when I program the KSFO Porte Three departure in the MCDU.I expected of course to see the departure according to the route description, but the first fix (after the runway heading fix) is WAGES!Do you have any ideas what is causing this? Do I need an updated version of the FMC database for this to work?Cheers,Bert
  4. In RC version 3.10 for holding to occur the final checkpoint has to be a VOR or VORTAC that is within 5 miles from the arrival airfield.Is that restriction still valid in version 4?Cheers,Bert
  5. Hi Bryan,For route planning purposes it would be nice to have more details about the SIDs, STARs and IAPs that are included in the Departure and Approach Briefing Pages.For example that EHAM-06 means ARNEM 1R departure from runway6, etc.FS2Crew for 737 did include a section in the manual on briefing codes, so may we ask for the same thing for the ATR?Cheers,Bert

  7. Two questions about this FO call.- Why does the FO need to inform the Flight Attendant that they are passing 10000 feet?- This PA is activated at 10000 feet for a Transition Altitude of 18000 as in US, but if you got say a Transition Altitude of 5000 feet and a QNH of 980 hPa, this PA is activated at an indicated height of about 11000 feet on the FO
  8. May I jump in on this thread because I tried what you said, but when I arm the autothrottle I got the PA telling the FA to be seated for departure. I also got

  10. Hi Nick,I think you found a workaround for something that has been a problem also for me when resetting a flight after takeoff.I did what you suggested, to briefly pulling the disconnect A/P switch before takeoff, and now I don

  13. >Nice one!>>That depends on the software in the FMC. Prior to U10.3 it>would be number 1. But as we have U10.3 or later in our FMC it>will be answer 4. :-)>The software lesson I referred to was from 1996, so I suppose it was prior to U-10.3 and the answer for that version was indeed number 1, i.e. FMC stays on the VNAV path, FMC command increased thrust and level flight after crossing a waypoint with an altitude constraint. The idle thrust descent starts again at the next idle thrust descent path.Can you tell me where I can find information about the changes in the different versions? Is that included in the FMC Users Guide by Bulfer?I read from another document (dated Nov. 2002) that Intermediate T/D points exist when path segments between altitude restricted waypoints produce a level path segment, and that an intermediate T/D point is shown on the map as green open circles with the label T/D-XXXXX(altitude). Is that also a change included in U-10.3?Cheers,Bert
  14. Hi folks,I think you all love to discuss the FMC VNAV Descent modes. I picked up the following question from a 737NG computer based training lesson for pilots.You are on a VNAV Path Descent and you shall cross XXX at 8000 and YYY at 6000. Which statement below is correct?1) The FMC will command an idle thrust descent to cross XXX at 8000. After XXX, the FMC will command increased thrust and level flight until the idle thrust descent path to YYY.2) The FMC will command an idle thrust command to cross XXX at 8000. After XXX, the FMC will continue the idle thrust descent to 6000. Then FMC will command increased thrust and level flight until YYY.3) The FMC will command an idle thrust descent past XXX and YYY. The FMC will not make sure the altitude constraints are met.4) The FMC will command an idle thrust descent to cross XXX at 8000. After XXX, the FMC will command increased thrust and a descent to cross YYY at 6000.Cheers,Bert
