  1. Rafal and the other posters sums it up pretty well...I'd like to add TBPB by Max Kraus, RPLB by Ron Santiago and LIPQ 2009 by Alberto Pastorutti...I'm sure there are others though... :(
  2. Vroute is great for detailed flight plans and routefinder is very practical when you're in a hurry.
  3. Jason,Afcad files go into the FS9/AddonScenery/Scenery folder or into the Scenery folder of your airport scenery with the rest of the .BGL files. Placed in either folder this will replace the stock afcad. I don't know about that particulier scenery you mention so I can't say whether it already has an afcad file or not.Give it a little test, for instance, close a runway for takeoff and landing (Top menu, Lists, Runways then double click on one of them to open it's properties) and observe AI behaviour. Be sure to close the runway at both ends or else it won't work. If they follow your modification then it's O.KBTW, AF2 comes with an excellent help file, don't hesitate to consult it, it's very clear and user-friendly (unlike most help files!)
  4. I bet this is Manchester. :( I tried to do exactly the same thing with LFBO (Toulouse) 2 days ago, 15-33 > 14-32, as a matter of fact there is thread on the same subject further down. I was very naive to think that I could do it easily with AF2...I found out the grim reality that I had to do everything Scott described above. Not simple at all.Very simple to change the comm freq. though, just modify it with the afcad program. You can even create ATIS for an airport that doesn't have one.
  5. >The only thing that i wish is that my AI did the same as well!>:-madYeah, I guess FS ATC and AI beat us all in illegal flying esp. with the way ATC handles approaches. I'm sure you've all experienced close counters with AI trying to "grab" your approach slot.Anyway, sticking to the subject, flying between skyscrapers is also pretty popular (try it with the Extra 300). Also I must add taking off from taxiways.BTW has anyone tried to be an AI wingman , I mean closely like wingtip stuff?
  6. Definitely, I flew several times under the two Bosphorous bridges in my city of Istanbul(about 200FT high). A few times upside down with GA aircraft. I couldn't manage that with heavy Boeings and Airbuses though, they didn't get through :D All in all I believe I've flown under them with everything in my hangar.Same here Nick, nowadays I find it much more amusing to stick to the regulations. (That sounds stupid but hardcore simmers will understand my point)happy landings

    Yeah, it does seem complicated! thanks anyway Mats

    Thank you very much Mats,While you're around can you give any advice on the callout issue by any chance:-) thanks in advance

    Ok Ross, here's what I found:http://library.avsim.net/search.php?CatID=...=0&Page=1&Go=Gohope this helps

    737 GPWS

    Ross, we should be able to get all the callouts from 2500 (twenty-five hundred only when gear down, down to 10. The same as in the original but with the correct voice.(I think it's a Honeywell product). I've also heard female voices too in a couple of videos but the aircrafts were classics not NG's. As far as I know we have EGPWS because we do get terrain warnings and so forth.I know that in the library there are callouts, old and new for Airbus, but I'll check for Boeing and MD since they're the same.Let you know if I find anything.

    737 GPWS

    HelloRoss, I'm glad you brought this up, the real world 737 GPWS voice esp. the altitude callouts is different than the PMDG one. There is a slight difference, I'd say that the real world one calls out "1000" in a more matter of factly manner and the dude sounds much more relaxed. Concerning the other callouts such as "terrain terrain", "pull up" they sound pretty much the same.I'd really like to get that very casual "1000" though.:DBTW, correct me if I'm wrong but I believe we have EGPWS on our PMDG 737.regards
  12. Hello all,I'm no expert but instead of blaming the Airbus technology (which has I believe fully proven itself over the years) shouldn't we debate about why the airport was not closed.Isn't 48KTS gustling crosswind above landing limitations?Regards
  13. >When going to manual (disengaging A/P), recycle the F/D's,>yes.Hello Bert, Is this SOP or does it depend on the type of approach? (ILS or non precision) What is the reason of this? I've seen quite a few cockpit videos of 737NG's, usually on the glideslope they disengage A/P at around 500FT, but I'm sure they don't recycle the FD's, maybe I'm missing something.Thank you in advance for your replyRegards
  14. >It's the word "try" that worries you isn't it?I agree, knowledge is the remedy to anxiety. On a Lufthansa flight just before take-off the pilot announced that there was a problem with the flaps and that they were going to "try" to figure it out. After 15 minutes we were airborne, my friend next to me was very uncomfortable during the entire 1 hour 30 minute flight. I however was sure that everything was o.k since our flight wasn't cancelled in the first place.The point is, I knew back then what I know now, these pilots esp. in major airlines undergo serious training. The dude in command in this video knows exactly what he's doing, he must have done it before not to mention harsher simulation tests. However mother nature can be full of suprises, here as a last minute gust.Hats off to all the pilots to whom I have enormous respect after simming and trying to land in similar conditions. I would also like to "rendre hommage" to the folks who avoided a catastrophy by landing without engines at Heathrow.BTW, concerning the latest news Mike has given to us, does anybody know the condition of the cushions, I bet Lufthansa will want them back:-lol Thanks for the link and humour.regards
  15. Hello SluggyI totally agree when you say that once you've tasted hardcore procedural simming it's impossible to fly a "lite". It's so dull to sit there selecting from NAV to GPS mode if you see what I mean. Working through the manuals, checklists and all that stuff just makes our hobby better and better, you realise that there's so much to learn!Now, 737, 767 and 747 being all Boeing may have similar FMC's but there will be a lot to learn mainly because they have different procedures. If you can wait for a while there's PMDG's MD-11 which will be a completely different platform.I, myself am looking forward to getting into heavies and I was thinking of the LD 767. I've done some research and well, it appears to be excellent.Alternatively, if you want something totally different you could go for Wilco's Airbus series. People have had trouble with it in the past from what I've read in the forums but maybe improvement has been done with service packs.Regards
