  1. Just wanted to note that i was able to download the OC update (from Germany). Dominik Teda
  2. I suffered the same problem not being able to delete an offset. However, using a direct to next waypoint usually helped. Deleting the offset, using 0, 0L or 0R did not eliminate the offset. Dominik Teda
  3. I just want to quickly confirm the findings of Romain and Johann, namely that the 744 - Long panel state was corrupt. I tried it with various liveries and all had the same issue described in my first post. I did as Romain suggested and everything is fine now again. Dominik Teda
  4. I will try it too and see whether it solves my problem, thanks Romain! Dominik Teda
  5. Hello everyone, maybe someone can help me out here a little bit: I have recently flown a route form UTAK to LOWW with a Cargolux B744ER (LX-JCV livery). As usual, i put the panel state to 744-Long. Certain messages appeared on the Upper EICAS, which have not seen before on any other flight: 1. SATVOICE AVAIL (according to QRH, this means that SAT com has been reeastablished but how do i remove it from the EICAS now? It is written in white letters btw.) 2. GND PROX SYS (according to QRH, my TERR warning system has an issue? Again, how do i deal with this?) 3. FUEL LO STAB R & L ( now that's weird, as my 744ER had only fuel in MAIN1, 2, 3 and 4 and fuel panel was properly configured) 4. FLIGHT ENVELOPE (no points in the QRH whatsoever. What is it, how do i deal with it? ) According to the PMDG FMC menu, my aircraft has no active failures, so i guess i must have done something wrong... I would be very thankful if anyone could just briefly explain to me what those messages mean in practise and how i would have to handle them. Best, Dominik Teda
  6. Ah, alright! I will try it the next time i fly in or out of Chinese airspace. Thanks for your help guys, much appreciated! Dominik Teda
  7. Thx for the hint Dan. I inserted FL360 into the legs page for convenience so i don't forget to be on the appropriate FL when leaving Chinese airspace. So i guess simply dialing in a different FL into the MCP will automatically take care in this particular case? Even if i have to decend to a lower altitude? Dominik Tedja
  8. I tried that, however, after inserting FL360 into the CRZ page again and pressing EXEC. the FMC did its calculations but came back to the situation before my input, i.e. again being in the "Decend phase". What i did was the following: I inserted FL360 into the legs page where appropriate (LINSO waypoint). The FMC has added a T/D point shortly before that WP and informed me via the EICAS that i had to put FL360 into the MCP. I did that and pressed the ALT button and the aircraft decended such that it reached FL360 at LINSO. However, it remained in the decend phase for the rest of the flight. Dominik Tedja
  9. Hello everyone, i recently conducted a flight between Hong Kong and New Delhi. I use PFPX for flight planning and at the boundary between China and Myanmar i had to change my flight level from FL361 to FL360. So what i did was to simply put /FL360 at the waypoint LINSO (which is the first waypoint for Myanmar airspace). The FMC accepted it and i thought everything is fine. However, it seems now that my aircraft believes i am already in the decend phase. The VNAV page of the FMC states "ACT LIM SPD DES" instead of the usual CRZ page. What did i do wrong? What was i supposed to do instead of what i have just described above? Thanks for any help! Dominik Teda
  10. what would happen, if you cross the border to china? would you automatically change to metric system and climb to, e.g. FL331 from FL330 and adjust all future step climbs, i.e. instead of FL350 to the next approriate metric counterpart? It's very interesting to hear how different certain airspaces in different countries are operated, thanks Rob! Dominik Teda
  11. Thank you very much guys, it is always amazing that one always learn something new! much appreciated. Dominik Teda
  12. Thanks Kyle, that was very informative. So i guess the FL in the OFP is rather discretionary than obligatory in most cases (except for certain regions like north atlantic). Dominik Teda
  13. hello everyone, i recently watched the justplanes video Air Canada flight from vancouver to sydney and i realized that the flightcrew entered step climbs into the flightplan (in the fmc) manually at certain waypoints via a command (e.g. 350/S). My questions are now the following: When do you "hardcode" the flightlevel change into the flightplan instead of climbing when the fmc wants you to, i.e. when reaching the s/c point? Is it due to some restrictions along an airway or due to the reason they were flying over the pacific? If the second question is not the case, wouldn't it be more fuel efficient to just climb when the aircraft says so instead of climbing at particular waypoints along the route? I'm just curious :ph34r: and would be thankful if somebody could give me an answer (which is understandable for a not-real-life-pilot :unsure: ). Bes regards Dominik
  14. As far as i know, both programs together might cause conflicts but i am not entirely sure about it. If you are happy with ASN, then it would be more reasonable to buy EZCA. However, the opus camera itself is much more superior in terms of realism. While EZCA supplies "random" movement to indicate all the shaking etc. which might happen during all phases of flight, they are entirely unrealistic and do not fit well in order to simulate turbulence effects. If you just want a camera in order to comfortably change your views and move around, EZCA is totally sufficient and will most like work better together with ASN. If i were in your position, i would buy EZCA. Dominik
