  1. If no speed is annotated on the chart it is assumed you will accelerate to 250 KIAS in a turbojet aircraft upon complete of your initial climb segment based on the Manufacturers guidance. This can be found in the FCOM Normal Procedures. You program this in Page two of Takeoff on the CDU. You'll see three entry points. EO Accel, Accel and Thru Red. A normal takeoff would be NADP 2. Based on the 747 this is Accel height of 1000 Thr Reduction at Flaps 5. This should work for the 787 also. However if that is not an option for you, Try Accel height of 3000 and Thr Reduction 1500 this is NADP One. These climb profiles can be subject to airport Noise Abatement procedures as well which can also be found in the Airport Reference pages of the charts.
  2. Whats with the recent trend I've seen of aircraft developers making military aircraft and they put 'reflective' paint on the aircraft? Even Lockheed has this messed up in P3D. I'm kinda surprised.
  3. Ain't nobody wanna see that. I seriously doubt my wife wants to most of the time haha
  4. Feeling a bit jealous now. I thought I was the only commercial pilot you followed 😂
  5. I'm married remember. I'm used to ignoring heckles and being ignored.
  6. Thanks you clown. Not a Captain until my checkride in a month. No next step would be Line Check Airman if I want to apply in a year or so. @Treetops45 enjoy the Everts livery!
  7. Wimps. Looks like a good weather day for Dutch. You ain’t been to Dutch if you don’t pop out at minimums with foam covered water below you and barely able to make out Hog Island feeling your way to the runway. That or the winds are so bad you actually have to go thru the back door and land to the north in bad visibility.
  8. Nice shots. How you liking PBR? I thought you’d jump to v5 over V4 honestly.
  9. It’s always gonna be a DC-9. The FAA designated it so 🙂 If you end up getting P3Dv5 let me know and we can fly the 717 together sometime!
  10. If it happens at breaking. Check your break temps. The brakes heat up real fast on the Maddog. Also make sure you turn off all realism settings for the aircraft. You might just be blowing a tire on rollout given you don’t actually have a brake axis it sounds like. Does it do it during an auto brake landing?
  11. Yea remember reading about it quite a few years ago. Missing a finger on his hand and they went to some pretty decent lengths to hide it cause I never noticed it.
  12. Kapersky is fricking horrid. I’d take a virus over that program. Make sure you exempt P3Ds directory even with Windows Defender. Was having sim freeze issues with the PMDG 747 and someone pointed out this might have been the issue. Seemed to resolve it.
  13. I think you need to reread what he said. Active sky is saying he’s only running v5. He has v5HF1 installed. Maybe adjust the tone in which you said it as well. Just shoves that foot further down your mouth.
  14. Most definitely a big deal. I was doing upset recoveries from what the automation kept doing. But yea turning off the Wx radar seemed to fix it.
  15. Nevermind. I answered my own question when I tried an install of the software. Licensing server offline. How awesome of him to sell this software barely support it and run with everyones money.
