  1. Ah gotcha! No problem! Thank you a ton for all the info!
  2. Hello! If you happen to know, (I am guessing by your username you might work for Gulfstream?), does that technically mean that Gulfstream Aircraft that have been made for Flight Simulator's that are free or payware are a patent/trademark/etc., infringement and violation under Gulfstream's policies and are illegal to create and or possess? Thanks!
  3. Quick question I don’t know if I have asked on here, I have asked on several other forums but to keep from bothering the same forum about it again I figured I would ask here. I have read a varsity of stories that Gulfstream hasn’t allowed any of their aircraft in any at home flight simulators. Does anyone have a source for this information? Because it seems they let up considering there is a number of Gulfstream’s out there, a few of which are even payware and have been up for what I would guess is a couple of years now. I’m just really confused, have they let up? Cause I’m also in a discord server where they are developing one for MSFS, and they said that the company has eased up. Curious to know! Thanks. Alexandre Trahan.
  4. Hello all, quick question. I know that Cirrus has produced the SF50 Vision Jet, the SF50 G2, and the SF50 G2+. But what is the Special Edition SF50 G2 Arivée? Is it just a regular G2 with a special edition paint and interior? Or does that specific airplane have performance upgrades that the regular non-Arrivée G2 doesnt? I’m curious to know! Thanks, Alexandre Trahan.
  5. Hello all, I have a question about the MD-80 warning systems. The stall sound at least on the test I have noticed from videos, includes 4 jolts of the yoke shaking, followed a high pitched “STALL!,” quickly followed by a slightly more quiet low pitched “stall!,” which sounds like it may come from another area of the cockpit. Why is this? Why not just a singular “STALL!,” warning? I have been a big fan of this old jet since I was a little kid, having flown many flights on it. By the way, is there more technical websites for this aircraft? Thanks and safe flights, Alexandre Trahan.
  6. Edit: In other words is there a way someone could tell me what files need to go where? I am a little confused on texture files and panel files, and the aircraft cfg. Thanks, Alexandre Trahan.
  7. Hello, I am trying to merge the virtual cockpit from https://simviation.com/1/search?submit=1&keywords=737+MAX +Southwest &x=0&y=0, to the aircraft from https://www.fs2000.org/2021/02/21/fsx-fs2004-p3d-tds-boeing-737-max8-v3-base-package/ . You may be scratching you head wondering why. The newer model in the bottom link has the correct engine design, and the wingtip strobes and nav lights are now on the bottom of the AT Winglet. I just want to port the vc from the model in the first link to the model in the second link. Thanks, Alexandre Trahan.
  8. Looking back on it you're right. That was a dumb question! 😂
  9. Hello everyone! So I would like to know how to take the fsx default kneeboard, and turn it into an ipad using the image in the link below. Basically I want to take that image, make it a 2d panel, and have it display what the default FSX kneeboard displays. Is this possible? I would then like to have the ability to add charts to it. Thanks, Alexandre Trahan. Image link: https://37wz5x2r8vbh3om46wmfhy71-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/iPad-Air-2-Space-Grey.png
  10. True! However I do like the look of the smaller windows. Makes the cockpit look and feel more closed in which I love!
  11. Funny you mention that cause I just remembered that the Challenger Jets do not have the side sliding windows for escape!? Then again, that jet is only what 3-4 feet off the ground? Whereas a 767 is like what a good 15-20?
  12. Oh ok! That makes sense! For drag and structure would make sense! Yeah those side windows on the challenger are tiny little guys! It looks cool though! Thanks for the detailed answer!
  13. Hey everyone! So quick question, I have been flying a lot lately on some of the big boys like 737-700, -800, and had an opportunity to sit in one of the smaller boys, a Challenger 350! But something always struck me about these cockpits, it's the windows. They are so slim! They have a lot less viewing area than I have expected! (Then again the seat wasn't adjusted to my height of 5'7) I fly Cessna 150, and 172, and those windshields are very large! But my instructors old 1965 Mooney M20C, also had some tiny little front cockpit windows. Any chance someone can give me the reason as to why they seem so much smaller? Thanks, Alec.
  14. Hello all. I am thinking of making a 2D panel of the iPad to use in your flight sims. Not a very advanced one. In fact the most it would include is the default FSX GPS Screen. But let me know what you think, and if this is a stupid idea, or if I should go through with it just for fun. Thanks, Alexandre Trahan.
  15. I like what you did there! XD. I get it now! All makes perfect sense!
  16. When watching videos of pilots or flight attendants speak about their lives on videos on youtube, they all have one thing in common, except for a select few if it is an advertisement, or a pilot life story, and the video is shot by the company. None say who they work for. For example, instead of saying, "I work for Southwest Airlines and fly 737 aircraft," they will say, I work for a major low cost carrier in the United States, and fly 737 aircraft," and never mention the name of the company they work for. Why is this? Any pilots or flight attendants on here who can tell me why crew members do this? Thanks, Alexandre Trahan.
  17. Yes. Like is there a program out there for flight simulator, that will allow me to bid for my schedule, or create a line for me to fly? Alexandre Trahan.
  18. Hey all! Quick question. Is there a freeware program that is like a preferential bidding system for airline pilots for FSX? Like for instance, I can select the lines I want to fly? I'd prefer the lines to be already created for me and I just choose the one to fly, just like Southwest does. Thanks and fly safe! Alexandre Trahan.
  19. Is there anyone out there that would be willing to make a panel for the 737 MAX? I would like to take this panel and put it in an AI MAX I have to make it flyable. If there happens to already be one out there, please send me the link to it! Fly high and fly safe! Alexandre Trahan.
  20. So on some NG 737 aircraft there are the ones with standard blinking strobes and a standard blinking beacon. Some NG aircraft also may have LED strobes and a standard blinking beacon, this light combo is also the same on the MAX. Is there any reason though that airlines aren't converting the beacon lights on the NG to LED beacons? Also why aren't the MAX aircraft equipped with LED beacons? Thanks, Alec.
  21. I understand that there are many P3D fans and XPlane fans out there that are probably very confused as to why I am not switching and going to the modern sims that have the fancy new MAX airplanes coming out from PMDG, IFLY, and ULTIMATE 737 MAX 8, but hey, it's my money, my sim, my decisions. Just put so much time, effort, and money into this sim that I cannot see myself not continuing to use it.
  22. Considering I won't be moving from FSX anytime soon, I will probably buy it and mod it to use as a UI airplane. Won't release it to the public though.
  23. No I see what you are saying perfectly! It is just that no developers are making MAX models for the 32 bit FSX platform anymore. They have moved up to 64 bit P3D and up. Got to find alternatives to fly this brid! I will admit though, I would hate to fuel the overpricing, greedy, sellers of such awesome software. It's AI too, not all that special for the price. I could find a better payware plane for that price than a crappy AI model. Thanks for your input though!
  24. Eh well for an avgeek it's sad to see another old canyon blue SWA plane go away. Someone else told me it may have offended some people.
  25. Guys N8301J Warrior One from Southwest Airlines apparently has been repainted and had her titles removed from her nose! Why dd they do this!? Can we expect to see her titles on the nose again!? Very sad to see this! Photo of her then: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9098093 Photo of her now 😞: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9214153 Thanks Alec Trahan.
