  1. If you are restricted to 180 then that would be correct. You would plan a route to remain EDTO 180. Last nights aircraft was 330 certified but planned at 290. A UPR route but close to GC.
  2. Last flight was EDTO 290. EDTO EN-ROUTE ALTS PLANNED: IAH - KIAH - HOUSTON PVR - MMPR - PUERTO VALLARTA PPT - NTAA - PAPEETE RAR - NCRG - RAROTONGA NAN - NFFN - NADI OHA - NZOH - OHAKEA
  3. Yes I am aware of the location of the country I have spent most of my life in. I grew up in the south of the South Island and the 45th parallel ran right through our farm. That being the case the bulk of the country is closer to the equator than the South Pole. NZAA is in fact only S37. I certainly hope that it is still where I think it is when we drop out of the clouds on our way home from ZSPD on Saturday morning!
  4. The last one used NZAA-NZCH-SCIP-SCEL-SAEZ.
  5. KLAX-NZAA are not really southern pacific flights, more sort of trans pacific. Of note, we try to stay out of Tahiti airspace as the user charges are very high. The main one is NZAA-SAEZ (NZ30/31) EDTO 330 with the 777-200LR. Rumour has it the 787-900 will take over this route eventually. NZAA DCT AA H372 TULMI GOKAG 45W70 48W60 51W50 53W40 55W30 56W20 56W10 55W00 5290W 4680W MON UM658 BAR UW34 BCA UW22 EZE DCT SEAZ 11:26 flight time. (UPR)
  6. My advice is to ask during the flight if you can visit after landing. Pre flight is busy and there is enough distractions already. Post flight you have a excellent chance of visiting the flight deck and sitting in one of the front seats. You may miss out if the crew are busy dealing with defects or other post arrival issues that can come up. You may also miss out if the crew is tired and or grumpy. If you don't ask you don't get. Good luck

    ZSPD Runways

    Thanks Guys I tried the ARPT_RNWY.DAT thing and it worked. I was having the problem before and after I put in a new AFCAD to get all eight runways that are now in service as P3D only shows four runways. Yet to fly in to see how it all lines up. Cheers David Cook

    ZSPD Runways

    Hi Can anyone explain why the ZSPD (Shanghai) runways and SID's and STAR's won't display in the FMC DEP/ARR page? The navdata file appears to have all the runways etc Using 777-200LR P3Dv3. Cheers David Cook
  9. Hi I have recently switched to P3D v3 which is going well so far. My only issue is that the interior of my 777 particularly the LCD screens are blurry. They are readable but not as clear as they were in FSX. If I undock them they are crystal clear, but not when docked. The rest of the flight deck is a bit fuzzy as well Does anyone have any ideas to help? Cheers David

    777

    Can someone tell me which is the best 777 add-on? particularly looking for good FMC.David
  11. SteveYou are right it does not work, might have to change that to 4000 SPEED 220.I am having trouble with speed at other places to, like NOKAM SPEED 210 and BERMA SPEED 210.Any advice?David
  12. Have just looked at another companies soon to be released A320 simulation and was a little shocked to see the old Flight Deck layout, with CRT screens and the old standard EWD/SD layout.Here's praying PMDG are not behind the times!!!David

  14. Hi AllMats, I included the link to NZQN as an example of the future of RNAV/RNP. Your example is of course a normal DME arc centred on a navaid, which is easily made up using P/B/D but is actually not realistic, compared with the arc selected in the FMC/FMGC. The NZQN RNAV/RNP is vertually impossible to model correctly, made worse by the poor VNAV of the 737.Steve, my NZAA is on Navdata, or is attached if I got it right (again)CheersDavid
