    747-8 Old Toga sounds in Cockpit

    Full hard drive? Not enough space to create file? Just spitballing there though

    747-8 ETOPS procedures

    It is an interesting one - the BA 747 that lost an engine on departure from LAX a few years back, continued on to LHR, then due to a fuel mismanagement issue diverted and I believe the FAA got in a huff about it all. Half way across the Pacific, it may well be best to continue on, but in the BA case, hindsight and all, it may have been better to land, even if not at LAX but at JFK or something like that.

    747-8 When?

    Totally not what I was expecting from a "When will we get X aircraft!" thread. But I get where you are coming from, there is something to be said for escaping for a few hours into a world where the difficulties of our lives can be paused for even but a small moment.. and I hear you on the sound aspect - my partner has no issues falling asleep to the lull from a pair of GE90's crossing the Pacific or some RB211's doing an Atlantic run... Francois, my thoughts are with you and your family and wish you well and hope to see you back in the community soon. Wes

    Legal to share my installer?

    The FSX key wont activate the P3D version and vice versa. What you are trying to do is EULA busting, if not downright piracy. Why would PMDG help you achieve this in their official forum? If it was my friend, I would tell them a credit card and the PMDG website is a good starting point to get the PMDG products in P3D.

    NG3? MAX?

    ESET is not a bad one when it comes to AV programs. We run it at work but I don't bother on my home computer. I just use defender.

    Cockpit shaking modeling for 737NG?

    No. Neither does the 777. Yet... PS check the forum rules

    [13JUL17] Quick update from us...

    Thanks PMDG team. I just did a flight in the 77F and have / had the autobrake clicky problem, was going to raise a ticket but checked here first. Good to see it is on the fix list. Well done everyone on the team for what you have brought us!
  8. 1. If you only want PMDG to respond, reply to your support ticket in their system. Not on the forum... 2. If they have not yet fixed it, then, ergo, they must still be working on it, ergo, they have nothing to report.... but perhaps Kyle will be along shortly to indulge you.

    Blurry PFD text

    I hate to say this, but have you tried rebooting it? I had a similar issue after updating my nvidia drivers, didn't even think of a reboot at first as it was hours later that I tried to go flying.
  10. Oh not again.... come on James, they are working on it and it is not a high-priority fix. Hell, it is probably within the allowable margin of sensor error on the real aircraft.
  11. https://www.ivao.aero/training/documentation/books/APC_Aircraft_perf.pdf Page 5. Poor 767 is not even listed. I expect it would fall into the "heavy liner" block. I wonder what Concorde was?
  12. Yes I forgot about ye olde MD11. I don't think we would see an A300, A330, B767, B787 or even A380 need to go above 250 clean though; seems to be more of an issue on the really highly loaded wings. I may be wrong. All off topic of course!
  13. Yes, I meant Vatsim. And yes, I agree on what you say, a lot of controllers don't seem to know that rule, although some sneaky pilots try to pull it off in a 737. Really only the 747 and 777-300ER should need to. Perhaps the A340 as well?
  14. Thats good to know; unfortunately my last few trips on Avsim out of EGLL this was not the case (not vectored off the SID) but that was a while back IIRC. I figured in the real world they probably didn't keep a flight a 6K all that long much like the ?OP's 16K example.
