  1. Thanks for your supportive message James. Yes I am a relative newcomer to this whole business, plus being almost 86 I'm afraid my short term memory is not as good as it was when I was an active software developer. The good news is that I have now successfully completed the tutorial flight and also managed Matt Davies' EGLL/OMDB including parking at building. Did get a "NO AUTOLAND" message but it didn't seem to make any difference. I landed right down the middle and taxied on and shut down. Very satisfying, now "onward and upward" Regards Richard Myers
  2. Thanks guys, all sorted now. Regds Richard Myers
  3. I regulalrly update my Navigraph Airac files. The latest (1709) makes a total nonsense of the stars for the 777 Tutorial. Is there a way of reverting to the airac that was installed with the 777 so that the STAR is the same as the tutorial? Tried reinstalling 777, no change. Regards Richard Myers
  4. I think my problem is a matter of timing. If I arm LOC too soon the tendency is for the aircraft to slew onto the runway heading immediately. and then leave the path altogether. If I get the arming timing correct, ie leave it until we are on the correct heading it then seems too late to arm the G/S. I am of course checking the FMA all the time and understand the meanings of the various messages. Just made the approach again and this time apart from "Too Low - Terrain" warnings (which I ignored) I did manage to land, Mind you I almost ran out of runway! BTW I have of course run the Tutorial several times but it is too specific to that route to give me any general guidance as to the approach/landing sequence. I have been flying the A/S A319 for some months now and of course that bird does all the correct settings for you, so I guess I've got to learn how to fly PROPERLY ! Regards from Canada - Richard
  5. The last few entries on my FMC Legs page are as follows... CI26L 240/2000 FI26L 170/2000 RW26L 170/253 Having armed the LOC it is captured but I can't then capture the G/S. Plane just overflies airport or goes into a series of circles at 2000feet What am I doing wrong or not doing? Richard Myers 85 yr old Noob !
  6. Thanks Romain, that works. Sorry about the lack of name, didn't realize it wouldn't be automatically displayed. Duly corrected.
  7. Since updating my Navigraph to the 12/16 version it is no longer possible to follow the flight plan outlined in the 777 tutorial 1. Specifically BUBI6A star no longer appears, the possible substitution previously suggested no longer appears either. There is no way to progress with the route setup without a substantial number of "discos" . Is there any way to set the navigation data back to the September 2013 version (for which the tutorial was written) OR can someone suggest another work around. Perhaps Kyle has some suggestions Eh?
  8. Thanks for the prompt response. Seems to work OK..Now to try and get this bird in the air BG.
  9. The heading says it all! Updated Navigraph to November series and now Stars do not appear as per Tutorial 1 for 777. Just loaded this sim today , was working before Navigraph update. What now?
