  1. Hi there.

    I am trying to get hold of a Ryanair FCOM/QRH/SOP manual. I managed to download the 2005 revision from mycockpit.org but find the ''not for operational use'' (strewn across the whole page) watermark rather annoying.

    I do not mind if it is 10+ years old or a pdf/physical copy. I do not mind if it has ''not for operational use'' written on it. As long as the watermark doesn't cover the whole page that's fine by me.

    I would appreciate it if somebody could point me in the right direction, be it via a reply or via a PM.

     


  2. I have decided that I would like to switch to the  BAW (cirrus) specific OFP format on simbrief to change things up a little. I was hoping that you could help me to decipher everything highlighted in yellow. For some context: LFOT is my C1 alternate for this test flight. When replying, reference the number above the image (not the OFP page number) and then the queried data. I have also attached the standard LIDO equivalent to help. I know what things like ATD are but have highlighted the whole line because the order of presentation is odd. I also suspect that PL is the passenger load (113 PAX * 100kg?)

    As always, any help is appreciated.

    Somebody also responded to my question on another forum and these are the extras that they got:

    1c. The waypoint at which you will have the highest shear value along your route, in this case TNT. SimBrief defines shear as: "Higher values of this number indicate an increased risk of Clear Air Turbulence". It's essentially a representation of how much the wind varies per 1000ft of altitude at a given waypoint.

    2a. CNR = Company Normal Reserves. Essentially FINRES (Final Reserve) + ALTN fuel, i.e. the lowest amount of fuel you should legally have over your destination before diverting. This value is always rounded up, so if FINRES + ALTN = 2801 (as it does in this case), it's still rounded up to 2.9.

    2b. FOD = Fuel over destination. i.e. the planned FOB on landing.

    5a. SR = Shear value over each waypoint (see 1c above).

  4. Thank you for both of your responses. I really appreciate it.

    To help me translate the EZY format, I also published a the flightplan in classic LIDO format at the same time. To @iwebber here are my findings based on what you have suggested:

    FOD is probably fuel on departure and is the minimum you can take off with (i.e. trip fuel and min reserves). Handy info for long taxi delays.

     

    The numbers show that it is likely TRIP + FINRES = (3.332)

     However, to the left of it is a column marked Minima suggesting it's not. RVR/Vis and cloudbase?

     

    This appears to be the more appropriate deduction. I checked the TAFs for all of the aerodromes and the figure on the left appeared to be the lowest possible forecasted cloud base. The number on the right was the worst forecasted visibility for the appropriate arrival times.

    The diff figures just look like the difference from the C1 alternate, i.e. Prestwick is 21 mins and 836Kg fuel less than Manchester.

     

    This would appear to be correct too based on the LIDO plan

     

    Based on these findings I must say that I really like the EZY format. The alternate page and weather page is really nice.

  6. Freeware scenery developer (XPlane):

     

    1. A large library of HQ stock objects so that we can make convincing lego-brick airports. If the XPlane Gateway model is then adopted, lego-brick airports could be submitted to mods and approved/rejected. These could then be shipped with the latest update without the need for users to download additional libraries. This also ensures that default airports are HQ and up to date (with ground markings/taxiway changes...). It would be a shame if such a beautiful sim were to be ruined by poor vanilla airports.

    2. The ability to get information about the terrain mesh in the scenery development programme used to create overlays. In XPlane, it is frustrating to make a custom building, only for it to sink into the ground because you have no information on local elevation fluctuations whilst in the scenery tool.

  7. TL;DR: Can MSFS come with its own scenery gateway like XPlane?

     

    I am a freeware XPlane scenery developer. I have never made an airport for Microsoft ESP before so I have no clue as to how you folk do things on your side.

    In XPlane, we have a scenery gateway (see: https://gateway.x-plane.com/). The logic behind the site is as follows:

    1. Users use Laminar Research's assets to make airports

    2. These are then uploaded to the Gateway and checked by appointed moderators

    3. Moderators give feedback and either approve/reject the user submission

    4. If approved of, the scenery is then shipped with the latest XPlane update. This ensures that the scenerys can be updated and that the default airports are constantly improving.

    As a result, the XPlane ships with some superb default airports. I would like to note that these are independent of freeware airports that can be found on any other websites as the Gateway ones purely use Laminar's assets.
