    Try disabling in the scenery library all scenery you won't be using for the particular flight and see how it loads.

    bleeding off vapp speed to vref +5 - PFPX

    According to 737 FCTM for landing without autothrottle, you maintain any gust correction to touchdown, but bleed off the headwind correction approaching touchdown (pg 1.18)

    Calculations For Vapp

    The FCTM method calls for adding to Vref one half of the headwind component, plus the total gust differential. Rule of thumb from the FCTM... "One half of the reported steady headwind component can be estimated by using 50% for a direct headwind, 35% for a 45° crosswind, zero for a direct crosswind and interpolation in between." (pg 1.17) Referring to your example, with the wind offset by 60 degrees, one-half of the headwind component could be estimated with the rule of thumb at around 25% of the total wind...25% of 24 knots is 6 knots, so that is the additive they use.

    Missing Recirculation Fan Sounds In The Ngx?

    It's just the sound of rushing air...I don't see why it would sound differently coming through the recirc fan versus straight from the packs. Of course the volume varies with the flow BTW I had CAB/UTIL off in a panel state which is why I wasn't hearing them in the -800.

    IIRC someone else fixed this by installing/reinstalling their FSUIPC...

    Looking at YUL in doesn't appear a J596 crosses YUL. There is a J566 at YUL however...could it be a typo? If it really says J596 YUL then it could be your FSBuild navdata is out of date.

    Have You Ever Had The 737 Lift Off Before V1 Speed?

    Check your controls for calibration or spiking... maybe its sending some erroneous pitch up input Are you sure you're calculating your V speeds properly? Depending on the variant, the TOW and other factors, 120 KIAS is a perfectly valid Vr...

    777 Procedures Checklist

    FCOM Vol.1 provides all the flows under the Normal Procedures chapter, and is of course 100% real-world.

    Missing Recirculation Fan Sounds In The Ngx?

    I can hear it distinctly in the -700, but not the -800. Maybe since the -700 only has one recirc fan, the load on it is greater and thus it's more audible from the flight deck?

    Nav Data Out Of Date

    You could ignore it, just keep in mind if you fly online through VATSIM/IVAO, or even if you use current charts, you will need current data.

    I had this problem when I tried the disablepreload=1 "tweak". It would often hang at 6% and then continue loading several minutes later. Check your fsx.cfg.

    Nav Data Out Of Date

    Yes, Navigraph and Aerosoft NavDataPro are the two choices.

    Long 737Ngx And A320 Flights?

    737 deliveries out of KBFI. For example, Norwegian flies their new birds nonstop BFI-Oslo...9 hours.
