  1. Hi guys, I have the 777 and am lov'in it. I wondered if the 747 is similar to the 777 (FMS, cockpit layout etc..) Plus is the FPS good on the 747, because the 777 is great! -Many thanks Ollie.
  2. Plus @ckyliu You said I got 18.6 I need 6< to pass I failed by 3 times the legal limit, how would I pass a different test? Are they much easier?
  3. Wow, I stunned how many people there are like me out there with all this advice! It's so hard to try every day in school and know that I might be working for something, which is physically impossible, however after these suggestions and I will not got give up and always look for a different way forward. However, it is still so tough knowing you are working towards something that might never come true. I'm sure you guys know what i'm talking about, like every day you dream about just one definitive answer of 'yes, you can fly commercially!' but it seems to never come to you... Also, why can't they just stick us colour blind people into a full-size sim with a real pilot and see if we can see the runway lights clearly, the different colored buttons etc... why do some weird number test and how on Earth is a different colored square moving across a screen used in aviation (the CAD test). If anyone knows these answers, please inform me :)
  4. Hello I am 13 years old and I'm very interested in becoming a pilot which gets paid, so flying passengers, cargo etc... However, I am colour blind so I do not know If I can become a pilot. I paid for the proper CAD test in the UK and scored 18.6 (6 or less to pass) and sometimes worry It was just a bad day and could of scored nearer to 6. Even though, I failed I am not giving up and am willing to fly anywhere in the world as a "commercial" pilot. The lady who tested me on the CAD said I am allowed to get a PPL (I can fly non-paying passengers in Cessna etc...) which was the only good news from that day. Is there any hope that I can fly or take a different test, hope to get some answers soon and hope I get some positive answers, because so far all I have heard is 'maybe' or 'wait a few years, things might change'. -Many thanks in advance Ollie Seaward.
  5. Hi, I downloaded some very nice tweaks for the E-jets, but the new .cfg's didn't contain any views (expect from VC) so please could someone link the E170, E175, E190 & E195 cfgs so I can copy the view text over into my tweaked cfg. Thank you in advance Ollie S.
  6. Hi I was wondering if anyone has the TFS A380 RR model, I have searched for it on avism but I couldn't find it, if anyone has it in there fleet please drop me the download link :) -Thanks in advance Ollie.
  7. Autobrakes not working

    Thanks guys, I realized on landing I was accidentally hitting the brake button causing auto brakes to turn off, I changed the button and my issue is solved.Thanks for the solution :)
  8. Autobrakes not working

    Ok, good idea I will try this tomorrow and get back to you :) -Ollie Seaward
  9. Autobrakes not working

    I only have the PMDG 777, by other aircraft I mean Aerosoft A320 etc.. And in FSUIPC in "buttons & switches" I have the a key on my joystick set to "brakes" do I need to add an "auto brake" key?
  10. Autobrakes not working

    Hi Romain, Sorry I wasn't clear :) The spoilers work fine, it is just on touch down the auto brake "disengage" warning shows up even though I haven't applied manual braking. Sorry I don't know what this is. I only know my auto brakes work on every other aircraft, accept my PMDG 777.
  11. Autobrakes not working

    Hi I know this has probably been asked before, but please don't re-direct me I just want some help, also please don't say "read the manual!" thanks! I arm the spoilers and arm the auto breaks to 3 on landing but they never deploy, I have to manually break which over heats the tires. I have FSUIPC and am worried that might be the issue, has anyone encountered this issue and can tell me how to fix it? -Thanks in advance Ollie Seaward.
  12. Thanks, I didn't know ATC vector the big airlines into airports, personally I thought it would be the other way around. The small aircraft need vectoring because they are less advance and the airlines can just plug in a STAR and only need to talk to ATC on final for landing clearance. Thanks for clearing this up -Ollie :)
  13. Hi I'm looking for a real pilot or someone who has extensive knowledge of London Gatwick. I fly into EGKK a lot and always do an approach at 2000 for 26L as indicated on the charts, however when I use Flight Radar 24 I see all the real planes turning much later and establishing there approach at 3000/4000 feet. Please could someone tell me why no real aircraft follow the 2000 feet approach? And general info on Gatwick's approach because it is really confusing me! -Thanks Ollie Seaward.
