  1. The HondaJet looks like the real deal for MSFS and is dirt cheap at $25. Available in a week - 5/31/22. I hope the files lend themselves to some speed and performance mods. Nothing beats Higher, Faster, and double the range. Honda Aircraft Company Unveils HondaJet 2600 Concept at NBAA 2021 LAS VEGAS, NV – October 12, 2021 – Honda Aircraft Company today unveiled the "HondaJet 2600 Concept”, at a special event hosted by Honda Aircraft Company at the 2021 NBAA Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (NBAA-BACE). Presented as the next generation of business jet, Honda Aircraft displayed a mockup of the HondaJet 2600 Concept to collect customer feedback and validate market demand. The HondaJet 2600 Concept inherits Honda Aircraft’s aeronautical breakthroughs, including the Over-The-Wing Engine Mount (OTWEM) configuration, Natural Laminar Flow (NLF) technology on wings and fuselage nose, and carbon composite fuselage. Through the further refinement of these foundational HondaJet technologies, the HondaJet 2600 Concept will be the world’s first light jet capable of nonstop transcontinental flight across the United States. The aircraft has a quiet and spacious cabin suited for long range travel, can seat for up to 11 occupants, and aims to deliver unparalleled fuel efficiency. <Specifications> • A range of 2,625 nautical miles, being the world’s first light jet capable of nonstop transcontinental flight across the United States, and also features a high speed cruise of 450 knots and a class-leading ceiling of 47,000 feet. • Significantly more passenger space as well as a class-leading cabin tranquility with greatly reduced vibration compared to conventional light jets, due to the OTWEM configuration. The aircraft also has the tallest cabin height, and offers class-leading pressurization with a cabin altitude of 6,363 feet at its max operating altitude of 47,000 feet. Finally, the aircraft will also offer 3 types of modular and highly customizable cabin configurations. <Advanced Technology> • The first transcontinental jet designed for single-pilot operation, with an advanced cockpit incorporating innovative technologies such as electrification and automated systems, including autothrottle and autobrake, among others. It will offer the utmost operational safety by reducing pilot workload through an intuitive, high-tech interface. <Fuel efficiency> • Dramatically reduces carbon emissions with up to 20% better fuel efficiency than typical light jets, and is over 40% more fuel efficient than a mid-size jet during a typical mission. When introducing the HondaJet 2600 Concept mock-up at the 2021 NBAA, Honda Aircraft Company President and CEO Michimasa Fujino stated, “Over the past five years, we introduced the HondaJet Elite, then the Elite S, to further enhance the original HondaJet design. Now, we are validating market demand as we unveil a new aircraft concept in a different segment from the original HondaJet. With the HondaJet 2600 Concept, which enables efficient transcontinental flight, offers new level of cabin comfort and capacity, and dramatically reduces CO2 emssions, we are introducing a new generation of business jets.”
  2. I think the HJet is our best shot for a new corporate jet in the near future. Provided the avionics package is upgraded and tweaked by the WT team it could be a real winner. No way around it being a "small" jet with short range (1437 nm), but, otherwise FL430 and 422 kts is nothing to sneeze at. Regards, Ray
  3. Does a similar link exist for B737/b737-normal-procedures.pdf ??? at the same web site. Regards, Ray
  4. The PMDG 737 700 for MSFS comes with a written Basic Flight Tutorial that is found in the documentation. This a short one-hour flight from KPDX to KSFO starting on the runway. The tutorial was apparently adapted from one written for the PMDG 900 because it still has several references to the 900, rather than the 700. The FMC returns some errors in the flight plan, but, one of our forum friends can probably suggest the fix. I have not seen any other traditional written flight tutorials for the 700, but, just about any similar aircraft tutorial could be adapted with the FMC setup being the difference. Regards, Ray
  5. Oh, I don't think so. I would rate Orbx and PMDG as my two favorite goto devs. Both are highly recommended. Regard, Ray
  6. I bought KRNT on the Orbx Central sale then noticed it was cheaper when buying direct from DD. Very detailed scenery pack but it has so many static aircraft it is almost impossible to find an empty spot to start the PMDG 737. The coverage area is much larger than just the airport proper. Tour of the Boeing production area for 737s is worth the price of the package. I wish someone would publish an airport diagram showing which model plane is located at the specific numbered spaces. My pc setup is too slow to go to each spot and capture the image then figure out what model plane is there. It is fun just to taxi around and view all the animations though. Highly recommend the KRNT scenery by DD. There are several Youtube reviews of the scenery that are entertaining. Regards, Ray
  7. Thanks for sticking with it. I searched every place I could imagine. No such file. Just another reason to think twice about buying from Orbx. The user manuals used to come in an easy to find location. Of course, that was FSX days. I may have to chase down the Orbx Forum and post a question there. RayM
  8. I searched again - no joy. I don't think I have any docs from DD for KRNT. I also did a global search for pdf by date and found zilch. Regards, Ray
  9. Thanks Greggy_D. I looked there but maybe I overlooked the manual. I will dig a little deeper. RayM
  10. I purchased KRNT at the Orbx Central site a few hours ago and am disappointed that I can't find the User Manual. Heck, I am still looking for an empty aircraft parking spot. It would be nice to have a diagram or list of statics at the airport. Any ideas on where to look for a KRNT user guide? Regards, Ray
  11. I seem to remember the fix is fairly simple, something about the mouse binding, but not being able to use the mouse to move around to select airports is a real pain. Regards, Ray
  12. Feelthere is not normally known for high quality. More medium level stuff. Maybe this is an exception. Ray
  13. I installed the mod for the VL-3 915 today and I have blank Garmin screens. Any ideas? Ray
  14. I guess we will find out today. Update is scheduled 1 PM Pacific Time USA Ray
