    Help with grass on runway

    Hi Again, Just though I would give you an update since you were very kind to help me. This week-end I did some trouble shooting and found that ORBX Vector was the culprit. Uninstalling vector did the trick. To answer a previous comment, my addons scenery are: Global base pack Global Vector Global OpenLC North America Orbx Trees Orbx Buildings HD Global airport pack (freeware) @Mace: I can't find KCOI on the "left list" in the configuraing tool of Vector so I cannot disable AEC for it. I guess I will have to live with airports that have this problem unless I remove Vector. cheers Louis

    Help with grass on runway

    Hi, No I am using the default mesh. I also made a test where I removed KCOI from ORBX and ran with the default KCOI and I have the same problem. @Evros: I tried your suggestion but no success. Thanks for helping. cheers Louis
  3. Hi Everyone, I have ORBX freeware airport pack and at some airport I have grass covering the runway. For example at KCOI https://1drv.ms/u/s!AnIJtsNQ0MJkhACOsKqEEsdkbjzo?e=hmOki7 I have try the ADE->List->Taxi links->Reset All Draw Flags trick then recompile but it does not work. I get the same as the original. I am probably doing something wrong so can anyone point me in the right direction ? many thanks cheers Louis

  5. Hi, KBOS to KORF. Cruise Alt FL280. No SID and no STAR. ILS Approach R23 with CCV IAF. ATC did not give me any descent so I started to descend on my own over KORF and I had to backtrack to CCV and catch the ILS. I'm using Xplane 11.3 RC1. Am I doing something wrong ? I got the "expect ILS R23 with CCV transition" but never got the descent.I am using 2.5.0.6x64_R5. I will send the log to admin@pilot2atc.com many thanks cheers Louis

    ILS vs RNAV

    Hi Dave, I confirm that ILS is favored over RNAV. I tried a few times with success. No clue what I was doing wrong before. Anyway thanks for the support. cheers Louis

    ILS vs RNAV

    Hi, I have a question related to instrument approaches. I fly the Learjet 25D with the GTN 750. It does ILS but the auto pilot does not have WaaS (LPV) capabilities. I have ATC assigns SIDs, STARs and Approaches. I have Force Pilot Runway Selection unchecked. It seems that pilot2ATC favors RNAV approaches to ILS in the few flights I have done. Since I cannot do WaaS approach I'm wondering what are my options. I want to keep it has realistic as possible. So can I just call Approach and ask for the same runway but with the ILS instead ? I assume that this would be how it is done in real life. What about "Force Pilot Runway Selection" ? Should I leave that unchecked or ? many thanks for your help, cheers Louis

    ATC giving Invalid VFR Pattern entry

    Hi Dave, many thanks for your prompt support. cheers Louis
  12. Hi, VFR test flight from KPBG to KBTV. My call sign is Cessna 2SP. When near KBTV: BURLINGTON Tower Cessna Two Sierra Papa and; Cessna Two Sierra Papa This is Tower go ahead. Make or repeat your request. Cessna Two Sierra Papa Tower Cessna Two Sierra Papa Is At Two Thousand Inbound for VFR Pattern entry Runway Three Three; Cessna Two Sierra Papa good afternoon . Squawk Four Three Six Five Enter pattern on a Left downwind for Runway Three Three. call downwind Climb and Maintain Flight Level Three Three Zero Altimeter Three Zero Two Four ~Squawk Four Three Six Five Enter pattern on a Left downwind for Runway Three Three Climb and Maintain Flight Level Three Three Zero Cessna Two Sierra Papa As you can see the ATC gives me a non VFR squawk code and ask me to climb to FL330. Also, another test I did was to request "Cessna 2SPinbound at 2000 for landing on the active" and the ATC gave me a runway that does not exist at KTBV. I made sure I was on the proper frequency. I am am new at pilot2ATC so I am probably doing something wrong. I don't know how to attach a file so I am cut and pasting the log here. thanks for your help cheers Louis Program StartedPilot 2 ATC (P2A) - version 2.5.0.5_x64_R3 09/20/2018 22:29:59 Application frmP2AMain starting 09/20/2018 22:30:42 Loading Form Main form opened: Pilot2ATC 2018 v. 2.5.0.5_x64_R3 Navigraph - AIRAC cycle: 1809 Loading Joystick Devices - 4 devices loaded.

  13. Hi Mike, I never had to run the Flight1 GTN Series ConfigP3D tool. All I did is change the original panel.cfg and it works fine. There are no other files like F1GTN.ini and F1GTNSTACK.ini. Remove these files and see if it works perhaps ? cheers Louis
  14. Hi All, For those like me that have a non-functioning ALT SEL on the autopilot (you turn it, click it, etc. but it does not change the altitude bug) here is a work around: There is a FSX key called "Altitude bug (select)" and it is mapped to Ctrl + Shift + Z by default. To change the altitude bug, first do the Ctrl+Shift+Z (or whatever you mapped it to) then use the plus and minus keys to have the bug go up and down! If you don't touch the plus and minus keys for a few seconds the function will be disable and the plus and minus key will go back to whatever they do by default (mine are mapped to zoom in and out). You just have to do the Ctrl+Shift+Z to change the altitude bug again. Sorry if the explanation is clunky but it is one of those things that is easier to show than to describe. hope it is useful cheers Louis
  15. Hello Everyone, I came across this web site today as I was trying to figure out why KCMH ILS 28L in FSX was so outdated and how I was going to fix it. http://www.aero.sors.fr/index.html The site contains files to update the FSX/P3D nav database (VOR, NDB, ILS, Runway Headings, etc.) to the latest AIRAC 1602. It is free. I have been using these updates for a few hours and all is good so far. This is a major improvement to the really outdated FSX database. I did not know this site existed or that you could update the stock FSX database. I am just sharing the information. If you already knew about this then disregard this post. happy "updated" flying. cheers Louis
