    What will be the next project by PMDG?

    Kyle, You do realize that real pilots fly/flew "Bird Dogs". 🙂 I've got a couple of buddies that own Cirrus' and they swear by them (not at). 🙂 Grace and Peace,

    capturing glideslope before localiser

    Simon, For me it's RNAV to the LOC. This new magic makes my life much easier. 🤣 Grace and Peace,

    What will be the next project by PMDG?

    Most likely the next aircraft is the B737 and then bring the B777 to the B744 standards. Hopefully the next new aircraft will be the B767. It's a great aircraft that is still in production with Boeing and there is lots of good data available. For personal reasons I would like to see the B707. 🙂 Grace and Peace,

    Is there a Pilot's Logbook in P3D?

    Dan. You did a great job on LogEdit. In my opinion it rates up there with the free version of FSUIPC when it comes to useful and necessary tools for P3d. 🙂 Grace and Peace,

    What do you do if you lose speed indication?

    Or downtown Dallas. 🙂 Grace and Peace,

    What do you do if you lose speed indication?

    Dan, Bigger cojones than I have. 🤣 Wasn't there an accident in Bristol, TN (maybe Martinsville) where the pilot was relying on a non-certified GPS and flew it into the mountain? Grace and Peace,
  8. I'm not sure it's related, but I just make a couple of laps around the globe (old habits are hard to break) with the BCF and didn't have any problems. According to Dan's logbook editor I've got about 130 hours and 20 landing on the BCF and haven't had any problems. Grace and Peace,

    How to get the correct Departure Runway ?

    A bit of trivia. At KDFW the landing direction is actually determined by the landing direction at KDAL. At PANC the landing direction is almost always on the "7s" and departing on "33". What I have done to get realism with my AI traffic is use Real Traffic along with PSXseecon (see AVSIG forums). Grace and Peace,
  10. I tried to update Real Traffic today, but got a virus warning from Windows Defender when I attempted to download the update. I was going to notify the Real Traffic folks, but didn't know how to contact. Grace and Peace,

    How to get the correct Departure Runway ?

    Live ATC and Real Traffic are good for this. Used Real Traffic this morning departing ENGM. 🙂 Grace and Peace,

    What do you do if you lose speed indication?

    No, but I have had to deal with spatial disorientation from time to time through the years. I participated in an FAA/Military study on spatial disorientation back when every one was wearing "brown shoes" and it screwed me up for a month. 🤣 Grace and Peace,

    What do you do if you lose speed indication?

    ATC radar speed is an estimate based on time and distance across the ground updated with every sweep of the radar. The aircraft can be climbing straight up indicating 300 knots and the radar will show zero ground speed. The farther away the radar target is from the radar the less accurate the radar is. Radar speed of the aircraft is only useful to the controller for separating aircraft. "cute" 🤣 Grace and Peace,

    Assumed Temp. B747-8 GE nx-2867

    I can think of a couple runways down in SA where get'n in wasn't the problem, it was getting out. If the runway had any moisture on it, the T/O was a no go. 🙂 Grace and Peace,
