  1. There's absolutely nothing wrong with conducting "Orbits" if IFR. So long as you have a clearance (if in CTA) and/or are aware of any conflicting traffic, it's fine. Just because it can't be programmed into the FMS, doesn't mean it can't be done. Nothing wrong with aviating in HDG mode or hand flying it. Then just pick up what ever track is required (or vectors, and you're on your way 🙂
  2. I’d just settle for a new car....
  3. Do you mean the "monitor vertical speed" RA call? This will often happen when your current altitude/vertical speed will keep you clear.
  4. Looks like Ryan's screenshots of the various setting are missing from the 1st post.
  5. Agreed. In which case we can comply with ATC. But I have to make it a note of it so when they come asking questions, I can say exactly that.
  6. M0.85 in a NG? Bit behind schedule were we?
  7. It actually is realistic. Tail wind/ Head wind will effect the ground speed, not airspeed. Ie, so long as your IAS is <250, your GS can be 400 for all they care. ATC may have a problem with that though ;) Most airlines (mine included) now have sensors all over the Aircraft. One of them is 250IAS below 10000'. If we "bust" that limit, we can expect a phone call from the bosses. These limits vary depending on where you are, and also depend on Airframe limitations.
  8. Stumbled across this thread by luck. I've actually noticed a sound issue with my setup. I completed a flight in both the 737 and the 777 (different occasions) and I kept on losing the engine sounds. When I changed views, I wouldn't get the expected change of sounds (switching to external view, I would think I'm locked away in the baggage bay). I found that turning the sound off/on (pressing Q) solved the issue, but only for a short time. Half thinking it's a memory issue? But that's a completely uneducated guess. I can list my specs if need be.
  9. Some of us, errr.. I mean them, see the light and become pilots!
  10. That would depend on if the Auto Throttle is being used? I know in my Airline, some pilots take their time advancing the thrust, while others almost fire wall the damn things.
  11. I've been receiving emails advertising this for months.

  13. It could mean a number of things. Most of the time it turns out to be spoilers or flaps.
  14. Most if not all APU's can be started in the air for reasons much like this. So they could in fact be used as a backup. But Im guessing in the 747 the AC GEN would be connected the the damaged racks so wouldnt have been much help in this case. Im not a 747 LAME but I have experiance on other Boeing aircraft.Its situations like this that I find it bizzare that a RAT (Ram Air Turbine) wasnt built into the 747! But on the other hand the chances of loosing PWR from all 4 GENs in flight is very remote.
  15. G'Day KurtThanks for the reply! :)The Kingair as you say is available, and its the only 1 Im not concerned about. I hoping I did make a copy of my keys on CD somewhere for the Dynon EFIS, RV-7 and S340!
