    Excellent FACT Cape Town scenery for P3Dv4

    Although I have been a relatively happy user of the NMG FACT scenery, times have moved on. I am now looking to switch to the better FSDG FACT scenery😏

    Looking for an AWS application installer guy

    Hi Luke, Message sent. Cheers, Richard
  3. I have an application that I want to run in my Amazon AWS account but I know next to nothing about AWS. The application is to be used to develop a new flight simulator application. Do you have the skills to set up my application so that I can get started using it? Any practical skills using AWS to get me up and running will be much appreciated. Further details on application. Regards, Richard😊

    B748 - setting elevator trim

    Thanks for the replies. I think that I have lost it! I meant that I didn't know how to set the B748 elevator trim. I shall start a separate post so as to not cause confusion.

    B748 - setting elevator trim

    I feel that I might be losing it🤣 How do I set the rudder trim value? I can find no mention in the PMDG manuals.

    PMDG Global flight operations

    I guess that the currently unsupported options on the PMDG 747-8 ACARS page will be implemented.😀

    747-8 Differences Manual?

    I have found that, though I used to be a B744 pilot for many years, understanding the B748 differences has been a lengthy process. Perhaps, eventually, we shall see a document that leads us through the new steps to getting a flight planned and flown that will ease that learning process.😉

    What will be the next project by PMDG?

    Perhaps we shall get an updated B777 with EFB sometime?

    Hi Bryan, Will there be any functions available for the PMDG B748?

    FS Aviation Academy

    The FS Aviation Academy will provide a wide base of aviation learning to the flight simulation community. Starting with the provision of a flying ground school for private pilots, there are already plans to extend this to other aspects of aviation training. Initially, we are looking for a system administrator who will take responsibility for software setup, site design and functions, student administration, file backup and recovery, and integration into a multi-national development community. No programming expertise will be required. An interest in flight simulation and in developing a deeper interest in aviation knowledge in others is key, although prior experience in teaching a technical subject is not required. If you might be interested in being involved in this exciting area of our hobby, then please contact me with details of your flight simulator experience and interests. Looking forward to hearing from you,😃

    777X new boeing plane

    You can see my long haul tutorial and many short haul flights in North America on my YouTube channel.😉 Always happy for feedback, particularly on each video.

    Start ChasePlane without needing it to require focus?

    Hi Keven, I only have the 777-300ER at present.
  14. Hi Keven, Whenever I start my PMDG 777-300ER under Windows 10, ChasePlane starts automatically. But until I give it focus, it remains in the Windows tray blinking orange. This seems to be a nuisance activity. Is there a way to get ChasePlane to start without needing it to receive focus?

    I feel that in the near future, products like PMDG and FS2Crew may significantly change their functions and interfaces. I shall await their delivery before making any further changes to my cockpit. HTH
