  1. I just chose to skip that one level and enjoyed the rest of the game immensely. I agree that the airport level was very tasteless and unnecessary to get the story across and they could have mentioned the massacre during one of the mission briefings or in a newscast cut scene instead. Playing the level where Russian paratroopers were landing in a US suburb had a bigger impact on me than watching clips on youtube about the airport level.

    No more OOM's!

    A friend of mine who had issues said that his VAS load is now on par with the NGX which is a good improvement in his book.

    Malaysian 777 down in Ukraine

    Exatly and A-10's are also designed to destroy targets from the FL300 region

    Can you fly without coffee?

    I hate coffee so yes but I would love to have a nice glass of cold orange juice.

    What if a passenger asks to see the flight papers?

    In the US you can ask to visit the cockpit on the ground no problem, plane can't go anywhere while it's chocked and hooked up to all sorts of equipment and papers like dispatch sheets and whatnot are not secret in fact they are often tossed in a bag on the galley floor for the cleaners to throw away. Look up PFPX, close as you can get.

    Will we be able to use the EFB?

    Probably because it would be a neat gadget to play with, a E170 series would keep the gadget folks occupied for a long while.

    PMDG 777/ Taxiing The Beast

    The PMDG manuals are the Boeing manuals but with different logos.

    Captains, who are you and how do you fly the 777?

    For takeoff performance I use the V speeds calculated by the FMC.

    The 737 MAX Flight Deck

    Was never a fan of brown though, preferred Airbus blue or Douglas grey.

    Anybody have a update on Robert ?

    I can tell you one thing from experience that showering after surgery really sucks until the wounds have a week or two to heal.

    How many times...

    I'm rarely on the avsim forum now that the FB page has been created.

    When should I handfly the T7?

    It depends on workload and company SOP's, some guys I know start hand flying about 15-20 miles out and as for takeoff there are a few pilots within my airline who like to handfly all the way into the FL200 range and the company encourages that.

    What is your favorite PMDG plane?

    777 since the 737 was never really my type of plane, its been pretty much replaced by the DC-9 although I still love to do short hops in the JS41.

    A sad day for Malev

    LOT's Tupolev's were safe because LOT has some of the best maintenance crews in Eastern Europe.

    Regional Jets

    1. Disagreed, they looks more sleek and modern than the garbage CRJ's. 2. Not here with Delta at ORD, they usually use the same gates for Shuttles, Endeavor, and Skywest. 3. I hate the CRJ fold up stairs, those things are kinda heavy for small people to lift and very slippery if wet. 4. No comment. 5. One of the most comfortable yokes I handled and this is coming from someone who dislikes yokes in general. 6. Avionics are the most advanced for an RJ and even make the 777 look antique. 7. I guess that's an issue for those with large hands. 8. Vacuum system lav beats the snot out of the CRJ's old system, as a lav tech I wonder why Bombardier stuck with the old school blue juice lavs and that's a pain on the CM9 where you have not one but TWO service panels to do.
