    GM for Nickles Bakery. Not much time. Enjoy the time I do have to Fly.
  1. These look great. Unfortunately going through some financial hardships currently and am unable to purchase for a while.

    Camera Monitoring for Real Flight Emergencies

    That is a good example about cargo smoke. How about having one at each gear lock mechanism and add to the emergency checklist to visually check the lock mechanism on the gear in question. You could at least be able to visually be sure that you are not on fire also by looking down the wing at the engines (or the tail). There could be some practical applications but not taken to extremes.

    MS FSX Devs making a Combat Space Simulator

    I was talking with a friend of mine who is involved with this project. It definitely seems to be a revolutionary technology that could be used to create an entire ultra HD earth for Flight Sim. Combine this with some great weather engines and the fantastic developers we have today, we could have ourselves an awesome product.....
  4. You want to introduce me to that woman......
  5. I was stationed at Nellis in Las Vegas as a Crew Chief on F-16's. We parked our AC Nose to nose and tail to tail. I can remember recording ambient temps of 160 F in-between running jets where we would have to work. That is HOT!
  6. It used to be that I could check here every day and pick up some valuable info every day or two. But lately it seems that every time I check back mostly the same topics are still here. Is this just me or are others noticing the same?
  7. I am very interested in the upcoming Bizjet Devs. Not real interested in the Carenado entries more interested in what would be possibly closer to something like PMDG level of development. I own a few Carenado Planes and like them but IMHO I would rather pay a few more dollars and get the jet I want. PMDG said at one point that they would not build a Bizjet because it would take just as much resources as an NGX but the market was not there. Maybe that has changed.

    [13MAY15] Intercontinental breakfast, anyone?

    That is excellent Kyle. The massive difference in the engines are readily apparent. Without looking it up I would imagine that the -8 has a lot better power to weight ratio. Having that reserve power is a very good safety feature. Also the obvious flaps and the wing which looks like it came straight off of a 787.

    [13MAY15] Intercontinental breakfast, anyone?

    Please forgive me if the following has already been asked as I have a migraine and am having issues reading all of it. 1. Since the -8 is such a different AC will it be priced as a different product or as the 6 & 700 on the NGX. 2. Can we see some views of the 400 & -8 side by side to compare. 3. Just a Thanks. Been waiting on this one for a while. Due to financial constraints I passed on the T-7 because I knew the Queen was on the way!!!

    Do you have full voice with each other?

    Who *really* uses the Autoland?

    I use to hand fly the NGX at all times except cruise. But since I now do all of my flying on Vatsim I find it difficult to hand fly, keep a solid altitude and heading, and change the radio. I still always hand fly the landing. Rarely does ASN require an Autoland. Does anyone know of a pop up for the radio panel in the NGX?

    [04APR15] Today we lost a dear friend...

    I like many of you only knew Tom through the forum here at Avsim. But when I heard the initial news and especially when I saw Roberts announcement I felt as if I was hit in the gut. I doubt that Tom ever had any idea of the amount of people he touched or influenced. My prayers are with his family as I am sure Tom is doing fine. Ron

    Words I need to share with our Community

    Tom: I have the upmost respect for you and what you do. When I read your news it hit me like a ton of bricks. Do not worry about Avsim (even though I know you will) it will take care of itself. I am sure you are saved and my prayers are with you and your family. Cancer will not win, God WILL!!
