  1. With growing confidence after my return from the USA my next route is planned with the 390 Premier from EGGP Liverpool to YPDN Darwin, Australia. About 9,500 miles (I had the exact figures but changed the route slightly) and 16 airports. So far I did EGGP Liverpool to LMFN Nice and then on to LIRN Naples, Italy. 14 more stops to go for fuel. I found a nice little VFR program and made a PDF of the route with Flight Plan and Map. Look for VfrFlight below if interested, it is free to use. Thanks once again for all your help, Bert. http://serwer1998768.home.pl/vfr/en/index.html I found VfrFlight invaluable in planning my route. The world and his dog states they flew it in real but nobody gives details of the route itself. This one gives hops with NM distances and allows you to pop one in the middle of two of them if it's too far for the Premier. It builds up the route and displays it on a map, using the P3D Database so you know the airports and airfields exist. It does work in FSX and XPlane too. Steve
  2. Just for anyone eIse who finds this post and/or thinks about getting the GTN 750, JUST DO IT! Tested with a short hop from Liverpool EGGP to Birmham EGBB. Then began my reconstruction loosely based on an old WW2 Route to ferry spare parts to the USA from England, in a light plane. OK so the Premier is a jet but has a short range with a full tank. I also tested with the Dual Engine Beech B60 V2 using the GTN 750 too. EGGP Liverpool (home area so my chosen start) to EGPC Wick (Scotland) 325.7 nm EGPC Wick to BIKF (Keflavik) Iceland 702.2 nm BIKF to BGBW (NARSARSUAQ) Greenland 652.0 nm BGBW to CYYR (Goose Bay) Canada 710.8 nm CYYR to KRME (Griffiss AF) USA 849.5 nm The GTN 750 was superb and showed all the details I knew little about, being poor on geography. The route was shown clearly and I had no hesitation at all, even though I had not previously flown there. BIKF to BGBW Greenland I flew direct as there were no suitable airways shown in the planner or GTN 750. The approach to Greenland was fantastic with a flight down a valley to land. Canada was a good approach and the GTN 750 was superb, far better than any unit I'd used before and much more detail and simplicity. The Premier stuck to the GTN 750 route like glue. By far the best part was the approach into Griffiss AF as the GTN 750 had full approach plates and details with heights at each marker. I now intend flying back again and know I will do this route more than once. The route is also still used these days to ferry new and repaired light planes to America at a fraction of the normal delivery costs. Whilst this can cost $13,000 the lower price of the plane when purchased can more than make up for it. Thanks again to Bert, this implementation was 10 times better than I had hoped for
  3. Many many thanks Bert, quick too. This should help me no end using the GTN 750 I got today. thanks again Steve
  4. Sent an email to Bert for his Premier Integration Mod. Many thanks to Bert and all helping out with this stuff. I struggle more than ever with health problems so this help is invaluable and well appreciated folks. Thank you, especially Bert who I know has been helping people a long time now. Steve
  5. Many many thank to Sean. Realair=RealPeople. People who make a difference!
  6. I fancy having a go at the Easi Jet when the paint kit is out.
  7. I would like to see the traditional PMDG textures please (I usually use them for testing and real world variants for routes). Easijet for definate and any British jets possible. I`ll be getting the base pack so anything British + Easijet for the 800/900 would be cool. By the time the other variants come out I think a few home brewed ones will be available.Steve Brooks
  8. Probably the dll.xml is corrupted, SimConnect has always been a weak area. One of your 3rd party add ons may have corrupted it. This is how mine looks.....<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252" ?>Launchdll.xmlFalseFalseTraffic ToolboxFalseFalse..Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDKSDKEnvironment KitTraffic Toolbox SDKtraffictoolbox.dllVisual Effects ToolFalseFalse..Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDKSDKEnvironment KitSpecial Effects SDKvisualfxtool.dllLevel-D SimulationsFalseFalseModulesLVLD.dllFSUIPC 4FalseModulesFSUIPC4.dllPMDG OptionsFalsePMDGDLLsPMDGOptions.dllPMDG EventsFalsePMDGDLLsPMDGEvents.dllPMDG SoundsFalsePMDGDLLsPMDGSounds.dllObject Placement ToolFalseFalse..Microsoft Flight Simulator X SDKSDKMission Creation Kitobject_placement.dllThis affects the file menu in FSX and if its corrupted then either stuff does not appear in the menu or in severe cases FSX fails to start. Only a guess, but thats my take on it anyway. Start by uninstalling 3rd party add ons and reintroduce them one at a time until you find the offending item.I had no problems, but then I clean installed in this order....FSX Deluxe, Acceleration (includes SP1 and SP2), SDK, SDK SP1a, SDK Acceleration Version. I tried the SDK SP2 version and prefer the Acceleration one as some items were missing from the file menu with the SDK SP2. Best to start FSX before applying SP1 and the same with SP2, so it at least builds the FSX.cfg Likewise if you take the FSX/Acceleration route instead. Then, one by one under test conditions reintroduce 3rd part aircraft/programs and check for problems.Reider
  9. The major flaw is not having fresh food on board for the flight. Never see the food truck there ;-) Reider
  10. The RC is not recommended to install. Best to wait for the official release, their are still changes between the two and its not far off now anyway. I am a beta tester and still would not attempt to use this software, until the official public release. It was somebody from Microsoft who told us not to install it.....Reider
  11. Glad it helped along with Lefteris. We all have a mutual hobby and interest, so we try to pool ideas. Its often a combination of these ideas that works. Have fun and enjoy.....Reider
  12. Haven`t got FS9 on now but I have had it on in Vista 32 bit in the past wit no problems..... No intention of putting it back on either ;-) Reider
  13. Yes, I have both and read the message. It was said more matter of fact than anything, whilst it may have come across as a serious message I don`t think that was the intention. Daryl has to make it an official announcement so it just sounds that way. I`ve seen him 'having a go' and I definitely do not think this is one of them.I must say, hats off to PMDG on this subject. They were already dealing with it and have acknowledged it. These overlaps can and do happen with all the best good will and intention in the world.Go get it Graham, you will not regret buying her. Both PMDG and Level D represent a quality and service level for others to look up to. You`ll get a lot of enjoyment and total back up too.Reider
  14. Got to admit, this would be a nice feature..... When I land, I open the doors, its like you`ve really arrived somewhere. Seeing the steps would be the icing on this visual cake.Reider
