    Steep landing

    This reminds me of the jet landings now allowed at London Business Airport. I have been a passenger for a number of flights and can say they are steep approaches, and is now open to jet planes (including Airbus a318 to New York and a number of Embrears'). I have just bought the Madrid Airport and it also seems to have a steep hill before the approaches. Therefore, the only thing I can think of is to configure my a318 for landing, turn the autopilot off long after I see 4 white lights (keeping the aircraft level), otherwise I'm going to hit a hill on approach. The problem for me is that I don't know when to start the nose-down between the hilltop and managing to get to the start of the runway without a heavy landing?? Thanks

    Active Sky for P3Dv4

    Thanks Dave. I've been going slow on this because of the Chemo. I have a vacation for 2 weeks to Phuket in a week (on premier class of a 7878!) so whatever I learn here I'll need to remember here, lol. Having said that, I'm getting on with the P3D... I'm getting some good advice here.

    Active Sky for P3Dv4

    Ah yes, thanks. I generally fly close to the current date, so I don't think either options is important. Gaz

    Active Sky for P3Dv4

    I have been using this app for some time and always ignored it (run in the background) once I've set the flight up, but I've just tried a flight and it P3D brought me down (and other AI aircraft down) to what is the wrong runway - the built-in ATC end up sending me and the AI aircraft to the runway with 24 knots tailwind at the time! On the setup, I simply start the Active Sky app, go the the Flight Plan tab, click load, and load the flight plan I created using SimBrief. To be honest, I'm not bothered about the weather, I just want P3D's ATC to use the correct runway when I'm about to runway to takeoff or land. Same with time, I may change the time in P3D to some time in the past, but I have assumed it is using the current weather, not the weather in the past. Does anyone know how to fix it up so that the system is using the time I've told it to use, but the current weather. Either way I'd want to it to use the weather it was on the date I set it to. Anything to stop it setting the weather up. Thanks, Gaz

    Getting rid of AI on taxiway

    Yes, I have it set up with separate runways. It's simply an issue I will try to deal with now.

    I've posted in the simmarket forum - thanks for that. The airports I get the problem from is EGLL, but it's really the same with all of them. At the moment it's EGLL because it's the busiest I suppose. I find it weird that FSUIPC simply doesn't remember the setting. Sometimes it does, but after using the setting a few times it forgets it...

    I was doing that - and it looks like I'm going to have to continue it. Just a shame.

    I have to admit, using the map is difficult. Shame I can't get FSUIPC to work.

    Looking at this map, I assume the top aircraft is mine, but I don't know how to click on the aircraft (or select it somehow) in order to delete it. How do I identify an aircraft in the list to delete it? Gaz

    Getting rid of AI on taxiway

    Now I'm frustrated! My settings in P3D are here. Every so often, the FSUIPC option doesn't work - I have it set out as here... The problem is that I have to reset the key in FSUIPC every time I go into P3D, and even then it doesn't always work... I press the DEL key, and after the first aircraft has gone, the others don't work from then on. If I use the XML option to change the Traffic Toolbox, then I get a list of aircraft, and I can't identify the one that is closest to me - the list looks like this... It would seem to that the FSUIPC option would be best, and it works for the first time, but then forgets that setting! Any help would be appreciated. Gaz

    That's brilliant! It works for me and I really appreciate it... Gaz

    This is brilliant stuff. When I get a chance I'll try both the SDK and fsuipc solutions. Thanks for showing me solutions! Gaz

    That's fantastic, I really appreciate it. Gaz

    Using an SDK is beyond me now, despite the fact that I used to be a programmer! If there is a quick setting in FSUIPC, I'd rather use that.

    I can't find a command in the list of key presses. When you get a chance at your PC, can you let me know what it should be? I'd appreciate it. Gaz
