    Fuel Management

    Hi, Adrian. You can set fuel management to auto in the FMC. I think it was in the auto cruise page under FS actions. If not, it's in the settings somewhere. Cheers

    No more Voice Control

    Hi, Bryan. Please don't remove the pause function. Real life happens sometimes during pre-flight, so the pause function is useful from time to time. Thanks

    Sound quality

    Looking forward to it. Especially the AU set, my favorite from the NGX Reboot. Thanks

    Sound quality

    I have to agree with some of the critics here. I'm using the US set and it sounds great in my opinion, but the others not so much. Like someone said they sound like they were recorded in a bathroom. Very little sound absorption.

    SOP2 - No Autopilot

    I do it myself, but I've switched off the FO preflight in the config.

    SOP2 - No Autopilot

    Yes, but I don't think they check that on the checklist. I've missed it at least once and was puzzled for a moment that I couldn't engage VNAV or LNAV prior to take-off. I'm still very "green" when it comes to the 747, but I like watching flight videos so if you'll end up uploading it... :D

    SOP2 - No Autopilot

    Hi. I'm using SOP 2 and have no issues with autopilot engaging. I use the autoland quite a lot. I'm just shooting in the dark here, but one thing that's not on the checklists are the flight directors. You need to put both of them on. The FO doesn't engage his/hers. Just in case if you missed that.
  8. I'm using autopilot in SOP 2. No issues what so ever
  9. +1 on all things mentioned. I also noticed that the FO doesn't reply when I say "FL XXX set"

    More information please

    Yes thanks, I saw it in the useful commands section at the bottom of the main ops manual. It was just a different voice command. "Nacelle" instead of "engine"
  11. Greatly appreciated. All thought I am enjoying myself some lady company in the cockpit
  12. " the FO did not perform the "after touchdown items" for the touch and go (the same problem I reported in my other thread)." Happened to me once on my first flight with the FS2crew 747. It failed to trigger when I lowered my speed brake after clearing the runway. Since I've disabled that config option and now on I've used the voice command "okay to clean up"
  13. I tried it once, but the views didn't really work. The view changed, but the point of views were off. Not a problem for me tho, since I use EZDOK and TIR.
  14. Flew once with SOP 1 (the first flight). Then switched to SOP 2 for the next 4 flights and haven't switched back since. I got used to the "to the line" and "below the line" checklists with the 737 SOP 3. That being said, I too miss my Aussie FO. I've also set it up that I do all the power up and preflight flows. Just so that I have more things to do to kill the 60 minute setup time. Also using the automated ground ops for short turnaround included in the 747. I'm starting to memorize all the correct responses to checklists and precedures.

    More information please

    Just a few examples of commands you can give to your FO. You can tell the FO to operate the autopilot commands ex.flight level, speed, heading.. It can do passenger signs, flaps, anti-ice (at least in the NGX reboot)
