    JC Air Charters

    Hey everyone! I've been dormant for a long, long time (travel, school, etc.) but I'm back with one shot of my charter plane en route from Cold Bay, AK to Hakodate Prefecture, Japan. Enjoy!

    Works just fine for me, they're nice shots!

    Phoenix, Arizona + SWA

    Bluesky - I've downloaded the scenery surrounding major airports for UT, NV, AZ, CA, and ID - it makes approaches and takeoffs A LOT more interesting. Thank you!

    Well Done PMDG! 100% Convinced?

    Oh my gosh! This is one of the funniest things I've seen all day! I doubt they would post that if they knew it was from a simulator. However, to me, at least, that photo is certainly and without a doubt from a simulator, so how somebody who is being paid to run the social media aspect of their airline couldn't figure that one out is beyond me. I'm interested to see how many of the comments will be from people who also believe it is a real-world photo. EDIT: I just looked at some of the comments, a few of them absolutely believe it is real. This is how you know PMDG is the best of the best.
  5. Hello all, I was departing out of Phoenix (also where I live), and as we were banking right after takeoff, I found this STUNNING shot. I hope you like it!

    Introducing... The Boeing 777 Route Database!

    All discussion of the 777 Route Database shall now be moved to its official support thread located here.
  7. It's out! Go pick up a copy! http://library.avsim.net/search.php?SearchTerm=Boeing+777+route+database&CatID=root&Go=Search
  8. Alright folks, The Boeing 777 Route Database will be uploaded shortly (my apologies for the delay). Any requests, additions, criticism, help, or compliments should go in this official thread. In case you missed my post this morning concerning this product, please read a brief rundown below: This database was created by hand, through Excel, encompassing hundreds of flights carried out by the major alliance carriers (unfortunately, EK was excluded due to the sheer number of flights they offer). The 777-200, 777-200ER, 777-300, and 777-300ER are included in this file with very simple information listed clearly. This flight database has many uses: Simple use for the 777 enthusiast (thus its presence here in Hangar Chat, as anyone can use it for any purpose). Use to find flights that meet certain airline and/or time restrictions. Use to find flights of certain aircraft type. Use to find flights that depart from a certain location. Use to find flights that arrive at a certain location. In this database, you can find: The airline that carries the flight out, sorted alphabetically. Departure airports, with both IATA and ICAO codes, sorted alphabetically, per airline. Arrival airports, with both IATA and ICAO codes, sorted alphabetically, per airline. Flight number(s) for each flight. Flight time for each flight, rounded to the nearest quarter hour. In the event of the flight connecting before reaching its final destination (such as SQ16), both flights will be listed. All OUTBOUND flights are listed (who would want to fly INTO a hub anyways). TWO .pdf files, one for the 777-200/ER and one for the 777-300/ER. The best part... it's all completely free, right here on the AVSIM library. Thanks folks, and enjoy! I will post again later once the product has been accepted to the AVSIM library.
  9. Good morning / evening everyone, Lately, I have been spending countless hours searching for flights on flightaware, failing to find one that suits my time constraints before I miss out on my "slot." That certainly won't be an issue anymore, as we now have The Boeing 777 Route Database. This database was created by hand, through Excel, encompassing hundreds of flights carried out by the major alliance carriers (unfortunately, EK was excluded due to the sheer number of flights they offer). The 777-200, 777-200ER, 777-300, and 777-300ER are included in this file with very simple information listed clearly. This flight database has many uses: Simple use for the 777 enthusiast (thus its presence here in Hangar Chat, as anyone can use it for any purpose). Use to find flights that meet certain airline and/or time restrictions. Use to find flights of certain aircraft type. Use to find flights that depart from a certain location. Use to find flights that arrive at a certain location. In this database, you can find: The airline that carries the flight out, sorted alphabetically. Departure airports, with both IATA and ICAO codes, sorted alphabetically, per airline. Arrival airports, with both IATA and ICAO codes, sorted alphabetically, per airline. Flight number(s) for each flight. Flight time for each flight, rounded to the nearest quarter hour. In the event of the flight connecting before reaching its final destination (such as SQ16), both flights will be listed. All OUTBOUND flights are listed (who would want to fly INTO a hub anyways). TWO .pdf files, one for the 777-200/ER and one for the 777-300/ER. The best part... it's all completely free, right here on the AVSIM library. At this moment, approximately 12:00PM EST, the database is complete, but I am just making some final changes and double checking to ensure completeness. This database will be released at 12:00AM EST 1 JUNE 2015 (in slightly about twelve hours from now). I plan to update this on a monthly basis (the next release being on 1 July 2015). It would obviously be impossible for me to get every single flight, without error, into this first release. That is why, at 12:00AM EST, I will be creating an official support thread (separate from this one) for the users to notify me of spelling errors, missing flights, flights that shouldn't be listed, new airlines, new flights that have started, or anything else they would be interested in seeing. If the mods have a particular place in mind for said support thread (such as a separate support forum perhaps), please let me know. In the future, I may look to create these for other aircraft and airlines, and that support thread would be the place to make requests. Thanks for reading this lengthy post, and if you have any questions before the release, please let me know below. I really hope that many of you will use this file, it is free, after all!

    Parlez-vous Perpignan?

    Absolutely love the pre-landing shot!

    Which Izmir is this? The sanalpilot version or a payware version?
  13. Hello, all. Before I begin, thank you Corina Meyer for this fantastic paint. I took a flight on Panalpina (flight #4005) on a trip from Hunstville, AL to Liege, Belgium. The flight took about eight hours and thirty minutes. We had some miserable weather on departure, lots of fog (visibility was only .5SM, horrible). Here are shots from the sunny approach into Liege. Turning onto the approach (easily my favorite of this set): Parked, ready to unload after a long flight: Thanks for looking!
  14. Hello all, Today I took out a Polar Air Cargo bird and set it to work on Yuma to Amarillo, a run of only about an hour and a half, but nonetheless a dense route that warranted the triple seven. Before the photos, I would love to give a special thanks to Shez Ansari, who created this amazing Yuma scenery (not to mention the many others he has also done). Thanks also to Brian Navy, who made the Amarillo Rick Husband scenery which was stunning, far better than the default and even better than most freeware I would say! Finally, thanks to Steve Dra, one of our painters who has painted this Polar Air Cargo bird as well as many other cargo airline liveries. Now, onto the photos. Unfortunately an unexpected rain storm occurred while approaching, definitely making these a bit more dramatic! Here are three I liked (all are from the flying and approach/landing in Amarillo, Yuma is just a desert, after all!): Rolling left, spoilers deployed as we approach through less than satisfactory weather: About eight nautical miles out, gear down (and my favorite picture in this set): Finally parked, getting ready to pull out all of the sand from the cargo hold:

    Just one shot...

    Hello, I've been trying to decide lately what to be flying around for the next while, and I found my private jet that was painted by one of the members here who has since gone inactive. Here's a shot that I really like, I just took it this evening. I think this aircraft is a prime candidate to fly between my 100+ high quality freeware airports that I've downloaded!
