  1. Shorts 360 over Illinois, flying from ORD to Springfield... John
  2. Nice views of Mt. Shasta, enroute to San Francisco. Had a chance to fly on the Shorts from O'Hare to Springfield IL. It is a wonderful aircraft with big windows and a low cruising altitude to enjoy the scenery. John
  3. Flying the wonderful route out of Bishop in the wonderful and classic Cessna 421, a nice little airliner that can fly in the flight levels. John
  4. The B200 is always a good choice for this route, I have always loved the way it looks, like a small airliner.... John
  5. If ya want to go to Disneyland, the 850 is a nice relaxing ride..... She flies right on the numbers, 190 KIAS @ 28000 feet. I know, because I watched a Youtube video of a ferry flight across the Atlantic into the states, so I decided to climb to FL280 to see where the airspeed would settle at. She's a fast mover, fits perfectly between jet and piston pressurized aircraft. John
  6. Nice desert scenery, with a couple of shots of Meteor Crater near Winslow Arizona, along the way.... John
  7. There seems to be some confusion at Carenado about airspeed and Mach limits and the way they should be displayed. Many times I have gotten the dreaded overspeed siren only to look at the airspeed display and see my airspeed needle nowhere near the "barber pole" limit. Those limits, for purposes of the FSX/P3D aural warnings and "Overspeed" message, are contained in the aircraft.cfg file in the [Reference Speeds] section. Sometimes they are accurate and sometimes they are not. But either way, they are the limits the simulator uses internally. The problem arises in Carenado's gauge configuration files where those limits are seldom (read never) in agreement with those in the aircraft.cfg file. This is a brief tutorial on how to correct this error and have the airspeed indicator match the actual limits. I will use the Premier IA as the example. Tools required 1. A good Aviation Calculator. I like this one..... 2. The actual limits. For the Premier 1A, Ray has scrounged some good information for us.... Step 1. From Ray's data the limits on the Premier are Vmo = 320 and Mmo = 0.80. Note that these numbers aren't accurately reflected in the aircraft.cfg file. (max_indicated_speed=335 max_mach=0.82). Simply open the aircraft.cfg file and change them. Absent these numbers or if Carenado didn't produce them in their documentation, just use what's in the aircraft.cfg file. In the next step we will see how to get the proper crossover altitude with only the airspeed and Mach limit numbers. Step 2. Notice that in Ray's table the "crossover altitude" is actually given (in most of their airplanes it is not). Let's use the calculator to check it (or to find it if we don't have it). Open the Aviation Calculator from the link in another window. In the "Crossover Altitude" section enter 320 KCAS and 0.80 Mach. Press "Compute." The answer you should get is 27582 feet. From Ray's data this appears to be accurate (27,600 ft.). Step 3. Next, extract the cab file "" into a new folder of the same name (minus the ".cab") and place it in your panel folder. Using "spb2xml.exe" make an .xml copy of the file "Proline_Config_390.spb" and put it in the same folder. (the freeware "spb2xml.exe" can easily be found on the internet). You should now have a file named "Proline_Config_390.xml" in the CARPROLINE21_390IA" folder. Step 4. Open "Proline_Config_390.xml" with notepad. Scroll down to the line that says..... 33730 (>L:Barber_Pole_Altitude) //Limit to use vne or barber pole max speed 337 (>L:Vne, knots) //Never exceed speed 328 (>L:Vno, knots) //Maximum structural cruising speed Change these lines to read... 27582 (>L:Barber_Pole_Altitude) //Limit to use vne or barber pole max speed 320 (>L:Vne, knots) //Never exceed speed 320 (>L:Vno, knots) //Maximum structural cruising speed ......and save the file. Step 5. Rename the file "Proline_Config_390_1.xml" and delete all other files in the folder. Step 6. Open the panel.cfg file and everywhere you see "Proline_Config_390" replace it with "Proline_Config_390_1". Save the panel.cfg file and run the simulator. You should find that the PL21 Barber Pole now matches the actual airplane limitations. Even though the Premier in v4 doesn't seem to have the blaring warning horn, you should see an accurate "Overspeed" warning on your screen should you have that option turned on.
  8. Over Nevada's stark yet beautiful Basin and Range desert, and the Bonneville Salt Flats in the distance.... John
  9. I've tried researching a fix for this but no joy. It would seem that the Hawker radios do not connect with VATSIM using the vPilot client. (Unknown if other clients work). Has anyone found a fix for this issue?
  10. Misc shots over California and out of Pueblo Colorado in the Citation 550. The California photoreal is MSE, the Colorado Photoreal is my own scenery, made with FSEarthtiles, and found here at Avsim in our file library (eight downloads in all). John
  11. Love flying out of Bend, I stayed in Bend in 2013 and drove atop a small mountain on a spiral road to a city overlook that overlooks some of the Cascade volcanoes in these screenshots. From Bend I drove across the Cascades to Salem, where I stayed so I could visit Silver Falls State Park with its lovely hidden waterfalls, and I used Salem as a base to drive to Olympic Park in Washington the next day, though I did not quite make it back to my hotel there, I had to rent another room just over the border from Portland, in Washington, because I felt too tired to drive on and I did not want to drive impaired thus. The Cascades are a beautiful piece of America, my lovely ex wife finally told me she got to go there twice, and with my daughter this year for her high school graduation, she drove from Phoenix to Crater Lake, featured in a few of my screenshots. Enjoy my pictures from a former Pacific Northwester! John
  12. Hello everybody, I submitted a ticket to Carenado already but I thought I'll give it a try and ask the community here at AVSIM :-) I recently bought the SR22 from pcaviator. After installation and loading up the first time I noticed during the first test flight, that the PFD always shows the CRS of 000 in magenta, so the GPS course is not taken from the MFD flight plan. When I change the CDI mode to VOR1 or 2 the CRS is usable and adjustable, but in GPS mode it's not working. Also the flight plan from the MFD is not shown in the PFD (FPL menu is empty). If I open the PFD via SHIFT+1 the popup windows shows the correct CRS and GPS needle though?!?! Strangely enough but also on the PFD in the right top corner it shows "NO LIC" - what's that?! I reinstalled now three times after rebooting, but the problem persists. I'm running the C172 G1000 also, there everything works fine, incl. the Synthetic Vision which suddenly is also not working anymore in the SR22 after a reinstall.. it was working for one test flight, but after my reinstalls somewhere the Cirrus has forgotten about the SVS. I already tried running the SVS.exe as described in the SVS documentation, but it didn't help.. Anyone has a clou or idea about that?! I'm running P3D v4.1, win10 home Thanks for supporting in advance! Best regards from Austria, David
  13. Enjoying the route between SFO and Vegas.... John
  14. Flying P3D and Carenado's Citation 550 over my home created scenery of Colorado and Wyoming, made with FSEarthtiles and the P3D SDK. John
  15. Hi, The FMC on the Carenado SAAB 340 refuses to work. After turning on, it says "LOADING DATA BASE" absolutely nothing else. Please Help! I have contacted Carenado about this but they haven't responded yet (Asked yesterday - as of posting this). I had this problem in v1.1 and I am using v1.2. Thanks, TrainNutter
  16. Enjoy a flight over Xplane11's wonderful default scenery, highly accurate landclass, and great mesh. John
  17. Enjoying the Citation 550 on one of the busiest air routes in the world, between SFO and Socal.... John
  18. There's nothing like the city by the Bay! John
  19. Hi all, A new airline is starting out in the Channel Islands operating Caravans, they operate C208B's but with G1000 setup. I have attached a couple of images if the aircraft 2-CREW, the only aircraft they currently have although more will be delivered next year. Please note the aircraft has on the port side but on the starboard. Thanks a lot!
  20. Hello, I recently updated my XE from 1.06 to 1.09. I also just purchased the RealityXP GTN 750 for my Carnado PC-12. With this configuration, I was getting issues with the gauge powering up in the airplane, in addition to some very strange pre-set zoomed in views in the 3D cockpit. I was not even thinking XE but someone suggested I remove all my plugins, then run XP again to see if the issue is resolved. After removing all my plugins except the RealityXP one, the gauge worked in the panel as expected. I went back to investigate the rest of my plugins. Since XE was the last plugin that I updated, I started here. I'm running version 1.09: 1. after removing all plugins, I added ONLY xEnviro version 1.09 to plugins and viola, the same issue appeared. Large, zoomed in screen, no way to click the 750, unit does not power on. 2. I removed xEnviro so there were no other plugins except RealityXP (baseline), started the sim and PC-12 again and back to normal, except the double menu on the bottom left. 3. I added ALL plugins back in EXCEPT xEnviro, and all was still fine 4. Added xEnviro with all other plugins enabled and screen issue came back. 5. I removed xEnviro 1.09 and tried 1.08. Same problem. Tried 1.07 and all WORKS. So for now, I can only upgrade from XE 1.06 to 1.07. I'm not sure the connection here but it seems that something does not agree with versions 1.08 and 1.09 of xEnviro. My specific setup in this scenario is: XP11.21 Carenado PC-12 v1.2 latest RealityXP GTN 750 and Garmin trainer programs Happy to help troubleshoot. Aaron
  21. Having managed to integrate the RXP GTN 750 into the PC-12 cockpit I decided to give the Carenado B200 another try. I had initially tried to add the RXP GTN 750 into the B200's VC, but any attempts to export from AC3D totally corrupted the cockpit interface mechanism. I've managed to find a few workarounds now, and the results so far look promising. Still work in progress, most of the actual GTN 750 integration itself is done though: I still need to figure out how to move the radar display and get rid of the original small transponder and replace it with the original small ADF. Cheers, Jerome
