    J41 Liveries - unable to download

    Hi Scott, Are you using the PMDG Operations Center to download liveries? The Operations Center is a free and separate program that allows control over liveries, documentation, updates...well, everything. Oh, and if you are using FSX as your platform, all should be there. Patrick

    What do you do if you lose speed indication?

    Dang - I bet it was!! 😳

    What do you do if you lose speed indication?

    Being a continuous, life-long, student (i.e., you never graduate) of the "What If? School of Flight", a 10 year-old Garmin eTrex handheld tossed in your bag can provide a surprising amount of useful information in this situation. These are the types of things that paranoid pilots play with (recall: "Paranoia is Perfect Awareness!" ) while 6 hours out over the Pacific. 😉

    Activation issue

    Activation issue - solved. A router/firewall issue on my end. What an aircraft! 😎

    [23SEP18] FSX 747 Users: URGENT READ THIS

    Hi Robert, Yes - it turned out to be a port access issue with my router. I just dropped any blocks for 1 minute, and then I was able to Activate. It now loads with no with no issues. I've just downloaded all the liveries and I'm going flying! 😎 Thanks for checking, Captain Randazzo! Best, Patrick

    So, this won't help my P3d Activation problem? Please advise. Thx

    Activation issue

    Yep - I am using the correct key. I just started a ticket as advised.

    Not dumb at all - lemme check...

    Activation issue

    Well, I uninstalled 747 QOTSII and installed from a new download. Flew it, everything good. Then installed 747-8. Everything looks good until Activation: I enter the newly purchased code when asked, it gets to "Entering context" (or something like that), hangs for 30 seconds or so, then coughs up "Error. You are not licensed". Thoughts? Thx!

    Exciting times?

    That's right! Capt. Randazzo did mention a slew of updates prior to release...

    Hot and High variants

    He's talking about Hot/High airport operations. At high altitude airports, B757's are a common type for Bolivia, Peru, etc. for example. To my knowledge, more of a paperwork thing but, some models (like the 757) are inherently more capable at altitude. "Hot" - really hot (45C) operations are are common in the Mideast. Carriers there purchase aircraft with that as a prime criteria. For a number of good reasons, Boeing (and those other guys in Europe 😉) certify all of their planes to work well in hot environments, often causing other carriers around the world (especially in the USA) to complain that they are paying extra for capabilities they do not need. In the old days, we'd just use 747-200B's and takeoff from Riyadh at 2 AM.

    I want a PMDG 787 Dreamliner

    I agree - and the 'I want my MTV' I thought particularly clever, lighthearted and funny. 🙂

    I want a PMDG 787 Dreamliner

    If one is tired of the subject, why bothering opening the thread and reading it? Why go even further and post? (These are rhetorical questions - honestly). 😉 I'd argue this thread is just a group of aircraft fans, sharing their joy, and wish, for another great PMDG product. Seems like harmless fun...and kinda the purpose of an open 'forum', IMHO.

    I want a PMDG 787 Dreamliner

    I want a PMDG Concorde! Seriously - if they can pull-off all the analog goodness of the DC-6 and combine it with the only commercially-scheduled, series-produced, supersonic airliner...well, from PMDG it would be magnificent!
