    FUEL TEMP PRED message

    I haven't seen it yet, but you can find it on page 12.54 of the 747-8 QRH: Fuel temperature is predicted to be low after reserve transfer occurs.

    Cryptic CDU alert

    My guess would be that it’s an issue related to the panel state file.
  3. I am not near my computer right now, but I’m pretty sure I found the 747-8 FCOM and the QRH in a folder, I believe it was “Prepar3D\PMDG\747\Documentation” or something like that.

    748 EFB

    PMDG Setup -> Aircraft -> Equipment --> Page 16/19 Third option on that page is EFB Installed. Switch No to Yes.
  5. You’ll probably have to cool the brakes first. FS Actions -> Ground Maintenance.
  6. I am pretty sure that you can paste the password using the right mouse button (Ctrl + V didn’t work).

    747-8 parking

    Navigraph has some parking stand charts for the 748 or type F aircraft in general (for example EGLL 10-9C2, EDDF 10-9C3). In some cases the 748 taxi map will show the available stands (for example KMIA and KLAX). If those charts aren't available, I'd probably use Flightstats or Flightradar24 to lookup the real world gate used. Of course, you can always change the maximum allowed wingspan for a stand in GSX (page 30 and 34 of the manual).

    North America waypoint?

    That plan definitely came from Flightaware. I’ve seen numerous flight routes that started with such PBD-waypoint on Flightaware. I’m not sure why, but my guess is that it might be related to aircraft being vectored on departure instead of following a published departure procedure.

    GSX not matching up to gate positions

    The MyTraffic 6 scenery files could be the cause of the issue. See for example http://www.fsdreamteam.com/forum/index.php?topic=16177.0
  10. My guess is that you didn't switch the fuel crossfeed valves 1 and 4 to on (the unguarded fuel crossfeed switches) before the flight. As a result, Main Tank 1 was supplying engine 1, Main Tanks 2 and 3 (and the Center and Stab Tanks if they contained any fuel) supplying engines 2 and 3, and Main Tank 4 supplying engine 4. However, Main Tanks 2 and 3 can hold much more fuel than Main Tanks 1 and 4. Therefore, you have to switch the crossfeeds valves to on to use Main Tanks 2 and 3 (and Center and Stab Tanks) to supply engines 1 and 4 with fuel if you depart with more than 54.400 kgs / 120.000 lbs of fuel.
  11. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that the Scandinavian countries and some other European countries have switched to Free Route Airspace: http://www.eurocontrol.int/articles/free-route-airspace Btw, a good source for real world European flightplans is www.edi-gla.co.uk/fpl Registration is required but it's free.

    The long panel state is faulty!

    I had the exact same issue on my first flight after installing the update. After completing the flight I started the OC and got the option to install the update (again). Tried to install it, but same result upon restarting the OC. Before another attempt I deleted the short and long panel states (which still had the same datestamp as the default and Cold & Dark panel states). I tried to install the update again, and this time it was succesful.

    Any Over The Hump Adventurers?

    There’s a number of maps of routes on http://www.cbi-theater.com/ under ATC Air Routes, in particular http://www.cbi-theater.com/maps/map1118.html Also: http://www.cbi-history.com/cbi_air_routes.html
  14. Interesting issue that I noticed today in the 737-700: Before takeoff I entered a flight level for a step climb on the CRZ page. After takeoff I noticed that the 250/10000 wasn't followed by the AP and the CLB page showed a dotted line below SPD REST. Solved the issue with speed intervention. During the flight I performed the step climb, but I did not clear the field on the CRZ page. While doing the descent preparation, I noticed ---/----- below SPEED REST on the DES page. Entering 240/10000 and pressing Execute resulted in the same dotted line. However, clearing the STEP field on the CRZ page resulted in 240/10000 showing up on the DES page below SPEED REST. Just to be sure that I didn't make this up, I tried to replicate the issue and it did occur every time I entered a flight level for a step climb on the CRZ page.
