  1. You made the right choice. ForeFlight has grown leaps and bounds over the past 5 years. I've also used WingX, Garmin Pilot (for Jeppesen Charts). Now that ForeFlight has Jeppesen Charts, and you can install it on two ipads and an iphone, it's all one stop shopping for me. Outside of the sim, when linked with a Stratus for GPS/AHRS and ADS-B, it's perfect. Only shortcoming is inability to link with Garmin flight decks. Since you went with ForeFlight, don't forget to check out the ForeFlight Web Based flightplanning site: Use your FF account credentials and any planning you do on the web will show up in the app.
  2. Not sure exactly what you're referring to. If you're talking about the sim navigation aids, then: If you're talking about RXP or GTN, then you just have to be smart about the procedures you accept. You obviously can't shoot an RNAV approach if it's not in your database.
  3. And the best news has been left out... No more Couatl Addon Manager required.
  4. This is precisely the problem.
  5. Echo this request. Just installed ChasePlane and after spending some time getting used to it, it's definitely a game changer! I'll give it another week of using it exclusively, then will likely get rid of TrackIR. Thanks for a phenomenal utility!
  6. For simply passing the test: Shepard Air.. hands down. For actually learning the material: It comes down to your personal learning style. I've had students have success with King, Sporty's, Gleim and Jepp. Have also had students who weren't self-learners and needed the traditional "ground school". I'd recommend sampling some of the bigger name products out there before going all in with one of their packages (they're quite an investment).
  7. Looks nice. But if you're going to dump $600k on this, and not go 6 DoF?
  8. Have you checked in Foreflight: Settings -> Traffic -> Hide Distant Traffic (make sure that's not enabled) ?
  9. Does anyone have any insight on the networked broadcast of the FSXFlight? When I run it in broadcast mode, I can't see it in FF. However if I run it in direct connect (with my iPad's IP address entered) it shows up. Win10Pro, and two different routers (ASUS AC3100 and Google Wifi mesh). Both with same results.

  11. Excellent post overall! With respect to what’s quoted: I heard a story that the last Concorde which went to the Museum of Flight in Seattle, the FE inserted his uniform hat into that gap, and let it get stuck in that space when Concorde slowed and cooled. Unfortunately someone yanked/ripped it out and was stolen.
  12. With the virtual FE turned on, it’s not really any different than an older steam gauge/non-FMS airliner. However, once your proficient/comfortable, then you can start playing the fuel balance game. That ability to turn on/off the FE was one of the many things I liked about it.
  13. Excellent! Hopefully there is enough interest. E-mail sent.
  14. Coming back from a trip in two weeks and going to do a new computer/P3D build. Will be going Win10. The question I have is seeing how smoothly FCU rolled out, I'm wondering about going the LTSB route (until MS fixes the Home/Pro version). Anyone using LTSB and P3DV4? Of course I'll see how Patch Bluesday goes this week, but if it breaks things even further, I'll be trying to decide on an older version ISO of Win10 Pro, or LTSB. Comments/Advice?
  15. I fly (real world) out of Renton and Boeing Field. I'd love to have accurate renditions of those airports.
