    Ground Power

    Say, Ed, while you were there did you happen to hop over to St Bart’s for that challenging approach to RWY 10. I did, and it took me three tries. The first time I clipped a tree or something, resulting in a crash. The second time I ran off the runway into the water, again resulting in a crash. The third time I remembered to flip down the reverse lock latch and greased it. 🤪

    POH Avaiable for Shorts 360

    I did not know that. Thank you very much!
  3. Hello, All, I started a new thread on the 360 because I was afraid this bit of news my be missed. For those craving more documentation for this bird there is what appears to be a complete Pilot's Operating Handbook on a Canadian historical aviation preservation site. You can download a PDF after registering, but the catch is you have to donate $35 annually to maintain membership. To some this may appear a bit steep, but consider that there is documentation for a lot of aircraft, civilian and military. Also if you were to go out buy such a manual, assuming you could find one, you'd provably pay several hundred for it, and further, the money for the Canadian site goes for a good cause. Before you run away, let me tell you that you can still get the information in the manual for free!, You can study the whole document online in the form of an HTML file. When you go to the site, click on the aircraft tab at the top of the page. You will then see a listing by country, and then by manufacturer., In this case UK and then Short. Select your plane, and you'll be taken to the page containing access to the manual. You'll see an option to download the PDF. Right next to that you'll see the words "See full screen." Click on those words, and you'll be presented with the whole POH to view online. Notice at the top there are two tabs, Document and Pages. Pages gives you a view of thumbnails of each page. This is very handy to scan through quickly until you find something of interest. The Manual tab lets you view the selected page. You can save this HTML to your computer by right clicking on any page and then selecting "Savs as..." This will cause the whole HTML document to be instantly transferred to your computer as a link. The document itself is not really there. The only advantage to doing this that I can see is that you don't have to creat a bookmark, and you can get to it quickly, if, for instance, you placed it in a folder with your other 360 documents. Out of curiosity I tried to print a page and I got nothing. You can, however, do an image capture and print that. OK, now here is the site: avialogs.com Notice I did not provide an actual link. I'm still not sure whether this is permissible under AVSIM rules. Hope you aviators find this useful. Regards, Tom

    Shorts 360 released!

    Yeah, I noticed. Maybe the original designers figured the built-in headwind was enough to get the beast slowed down.

    Ed, did you find that parking brake control yet? If not, it’s the red t-handle on the left side panel. Good luck! Tom

    Ed, thanks for the encouragement. I had one eye done 2 weeks ago. My vision is already better. Tom

    Ed, Thanks a bunch for the help. Actually you could say I'm close to blind. I'm having cataract surgery tomorrow. 😬 Cheers, Tom

    Shorts 360 released!

    Speaking of documents, where is Carenado hiding them. They are usually to be found in the aircraft folder, but I don't see them, or am I just blind? Regards, Tom

    Your wish is fulfilled. ORBX is having a 50% off sale right now on all products for a very limited time.

    Nils, There is another airport nearby; it's a Gateway airport but pretty nice nevertheless. Try Rigby (U56). Cheers, Tom
  13. I have to say that apparently I don't have the problem solved yet. When I started up XP this evening with the F33, I was required to reactivate again. In addition I also needed to reactivate my X-aviation license. Just for kicks I shut down and restarted XP and started a flight with a default aircraft, and there was no requirement to activate anything. I then switched to the F33 without issue. I'll have to keep experimenting and see if this solves the problem. BTW, I'm really loving this F33 for XP-11 : ) Tom
  14. Hi, yes, I recently ran into this problem after installing the Bonanza F33 for XP-11. There is a discussion about this problem on the org. Apparently it's due to a conflict between two plugins, xJet and SASL. So far, apparently, no one is claiming responsibility, so for the time being there probably won't be a fix. In the mean time there is a simple workaround which worked for me, at least. Simply temporarily remove the xJet plugin, fire up XP-11, go to an airport, activate the license for your plane if asked. Then shut down XP, drop the xJet folder back into your plugins folder, and that should be it. When I did this process I was not asked to re-register my aircraft after removing the plugin. Apparently the xJet plugin had been interfering with the process being completed. Good luck to anyone else having this problem! Regards, Tom

    Orbx & utx

    Wbentel, you would probably find a fuller explanation useful. If you are using an ORBX area, e.g., Pacific Northwest, Northern California, England, etc., then you won't need Ultimate Terrain. ORBX areas combine land class and vector information, just as Ultimate Terrain does. In regions where you only have FTX Global base, then UTX should work with it. If you are using ORBX Open LC, then UTX would be partially redundant. if you are using ORBX Vector in combination with LC, then it would be completely redundant, at least according to my understanding. For the straight poop you should probably pose the question on the official ORBX forum. Hope this was helpful. Regards, Tom
