  1. Hello there, I have been having this issue at OLBA airport, Beirut, and it has started bugging me a bit. Basically, in the PMDG 777, upon descent, you select you STAR and approach. For example, at Beirut, they use ILS16 for arriving aircraft. However, in P3D v5, when using the PMDG 777, I only have the options for RNAV, LOC and visual approaches. There is no option to select an ILS approach in the arrival page of the FMC. Weirdly enough, I am able to select ILS approaches at major airports such as OMDB or EGLL. In addition to this, I am, nevertheless, able to select an ILS approach at OLBA on runway 16 in the FSLabs A32X series. Now, I am unsure if this is an error due to PMDG or the scenery or my sim but I would appreciate a response. Details : Location / scenery : OLBA Beirut by MFSG Runway : All runways don't have ILS option Aircraft : PMDG 777-300ER Simulator : P3D v5 Hardware : i7-8700k 32gb ram RTX 2080ti 2TB storage I hope someone can help me fix this issue. Regards.
  2. Hello, I recently loaded the QW787 for the first time in a long time, and I have noticed that the instrument panel that displays engine data seems to have no font/text on it. For example, there are no numbers on the display. I know this might sound really stupid, so I apologize. There might be a mistake I;m making because I haven't flown the 787 in a long time. I cannot upload an image, because I do not have any image URLs, and AVSIM rejects every url I paste. I will describe it as best I can. So basically, there are no numbers on the engine display, the engines are off at the moment, and they should say 0.0, just there is nothing. No gear down, and all of the fuel indicators are completely blank, there are no numbers at all. If anyone doesn't understand what I'm saying, just ask and i'll clarify. Thanks
  3. Hellow guys! I am having an issue with the 737 FMC. I can understand that the terrain on copilot side is inhibited for better performance but I don’t know why the FIX doesn’t either work. For example I am in the Copilot’s CDU FIX page and i am entering the FIX(AB,USA or whatever). As soon as i click on the L1 button,it returns back to the FIX page without any fix. But meanwhile it works normal on the Cap’s CDU. and besides,I can not type anything into the FMC by using my keyboard although I do click on the scratchpad and it shows up the green edge which means I am suppose to type in with my keyboard. But it just doesn’t work... So I click on the TAB key which usually deactivate the co pilots scratchpad but it doesn’t either work,the green edge still remains
  4. 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
  5. A couple of time I do not receive an ILS signal, even when close to an airport. I use the frequency given in the Approach page of the FMS. I have the "nearly" latest version of NavData ( I am waiting for the next version at end of month ). Any ideas ?
  6. Not an issue...mostly the operator but where is the setting to display both FMC's. Somehow or another I got it in single mode. Thanks, Bob M.
  7. Hello folks, I was really consider whether to buy F50 or wait for Saab.... But F50 looks really stunning so I just got it today and it's been only an hour AND Still I could not made a take off since FMC is not turning on... When I run FSX and Load F50 lights and other elec's are ON except FMC. So I tried to Press shift 6 and change the craft to take off mode...still it is dark... So I tried to Re-install F50 still it is dark. So I delete fsx.cfg [Trust] lines check the regedit re-run the FSX and clicked bunch of TRUST? YES OK YES OK YES OK, and still it is dark. Update the Navgraph, still it is dark. Every system is ON except FMC........ any idea what happend to my F50... I hoped to spend my weekend with F50...
  8. Hey guys, when I enter the SID I'm using in the APP/DEP page in the FMC and execute I get a solid line that goes straight off the runway and doesn't turn it just keeps going straight, however once I delete the SID which for instance mine was "SYKES7" the navigation line turns and goes to my next waypoint, any idea of what's going on? I watched a Youtube video explaining why and what to do but I forgot. Any help is much appreciated!!
  9. charliemcewan Hello, Can anyone assist me I only just installed the above but do not know how or where to find manuals /user guide?
  10. Hello, I'm a flight sim enthousiast, I quit don't understand these parts of the auto LNAV and VNAV descent... On the first picture you see the FMC descending numbers you know what I mean... Can I have some explaining please what means the 'A' next to the 3000 and also why is after 3000 a 7000 and a 6500 feat? When I reached the T/D I put my final descend in the MCP which is at Ibiza 3000 and then I descend always with Vertical Speed above 2000 but that is not realistic? What do I have to do when I descend my plane to not use the Vertical Speed? Can the plane auto descend until I reached 3000 and then to put the Autopilot off and land it myself? Or is it normal that I have to use the VS that high always...? I'm sorry I can't explain this what I mean exactly... If someone can help me I'd be grateful, my English is not perfect but I tried to explain it. Please if someone knows the answer tell me ;) Greetings, MIQUEL
  11. So, when loading one of the presaved tutorial flights i.e 'Before Takeoff' or 'Before Top of Decent', for the EHAM-LOWI tutorial, the FMC does not allow any editing. I can copy entries into the scratchpad, I can see all the different pages on the FMC, I just can't actually edit anything. Any ideas?
  12. hi. I have a problem setting up a bearing/distance waipoint in the flight plan approach on LOWI airport. here is what i did: i hit on INN on legs page to copy it in scratchpad . than added 264/+6 so it looks like: INN264/+6, and putted it under the org INN waipoint and becomes INN01. BUT... the bearing is 275 on the legs page and shows also on the ND where it is almort in the path of the runway tried an other bearing like 200 but still keeps setting it on 275 beering ... is this a bug ?? or.... has somebody als this problem ? please help..
  13. Haven't flown in a few days, not sure if there was some kind of update or not, but when loading in my fuel I keep getting an "invalid entry" (trying to load 20k lbs). I selected "set full" and this is what I got... https://imgur.com/CZAwALX It shows correctly on the main display, but FMC is wacky. I went through the setup options and didn't see anything popping out at me. Any suggestions?
  14. I am in the process of learning the nuances of Prep3DV4 but still have and use FSX. I want to find the answer to a riddle of Prep3D. I refer to the apparent gap between ATC comms and FMS operations. It appears that one can have either an up to date whizz bang FMC or one can have ATC comms but not both. The options for the two technologies to work together in Prep3D are just about none existent as far as I can tell. The only popular exception to this rule (that I know of) is the QW 757 in FSX which has the ability to load an FSX flight plan into the FMS and use that for the flight giving both FMS navigation and ATC comms facilities. Whilst this is not perfectly accurate and one cannot plan departures and arrivals in the native flight planner, but it has to be preferable to a complete flight with no ATC comms or interaction whatever especially if the user has AI aircraft flying all over the place. However, using an aircraft FMC and ATC using the same flight plan appears to be “A bridge too far”. For example, I purchased both the Aerosoft CRJ and the Captain Sim B757 for use in Pep3D4. But at this stage they are both in a locked hanger because of the communications ATC/FMS black hole. I also purchased FSBUILD only to find that it doesn’t output flight plans in formats suitable for the above products it will however produce a native flight plan. It would be possible, though hardly practicable, to make a standard Flightsim/Prep3D flight plan using the inbuilt sim planner or another product, print it out and then use the printout to load the FMS manually, (what a drag that would be) so much for the computer age! It is interesting to note that simple GPS equipped aircraft do use the inbuilt flight planner for the GPS plan. So how do others manage or circumvent this issue or is it just ignored and the choice between ATC or FMS planning made. Perhaps there is a flight planning program that can be used to produce both native and special format FMC flight plans I would pay good money for such a product.. I look forward to hearing other members views and solutions on this issue.
  15. I am working my through the Introduction for my new QOTSII. When I opened the FMC for the first time I noticed that the rego number, N747RR is not the same as the livery rego, N744PM. The Introduction makes the point that the FMC rego and the livery rego should always be the same. ?? Can I correct this? Rob Stevenson
  16. Hi, I am trying to get my PMDG 747 Queen of the Skies running. I seem to be having trouble with the FMC, and have been following youtube tutorials to see what the problem is. I have noticed that my Nav Data: AIRAC-0802 (Active Feb14Mar12/08, and wonder if that might be a problem. Do I need to get an update for that? I did load an update from the website v1.2, but don't know if there is another update I need to do for the nav data? I am getting "not in database" error messages. Also, at one point when I got to the activate and then pushed "exec", and it took me back to activate instead of moving forward to the next step. Not sure enough to know how to proceed?? Any help would be apreciated. Thanks, Kent.
  17. Hello, Is it possible to control FMC inputs from the central CDU? I've searched for an answer but can't find a reference. Best wishes, Luke
  18. Hi, I tried to insert an offset to get around a storm, but as the weather changed, I erased the offset and since then only the pilot's and isle fmc show "MSG" and do not react to any imput e.g. selecting waypoints or typing in a new speed. all the other keys and the copilots fmc do work well. when I go to menu in the pilots FMC "MSG" is not showing anymore. Anybody ever had the same issue? or maybe an idea whats wrong? Thanks in Advance guys and many happy landings!
  19. Good evening, I was told that You Tube has instructional videos pertaining to programming/operating the flight management computer on the Boeing 737. Can someone recommend me specific videos to watch or at least point me to a forum that addresses these issues? Thank you all so much. Bruce H. Solov Boynton Beach, FL
  20. Hey guy ! I have a problem with fmc. My fmc show me "The data base is out of date" But, I just update now!!!! Please Help me !
  21. I am having trouble with the Boeing 737NGX. I am trying to program the route for my check flight. When I try to select a SID, I can either select the SID, then not be able to select the transition. Or I can select the Runway to filter the SIDs, then be unable to select a SID. Can someone help me please?
  22. Hi there guys. Discovered a bit of an issue with latest NGX version. I managed to replicate this issue twice. When you double click on the FMC 2D panel it causes the sim (P3DV4) to freeze up and hang, resulting in a crash. As far as my research shows I have found no other post about this. No error message or log is created either. My Specs: i7 6770K, GTX 970, P3DV4, PMDG NGX 737, ASP4, Aivlasoft EFB, REX Soft Clouds, Orbx Global, Fly Tampa Schipol. Cheers, Voumani Madonko
  23. Hi folks, not sure whether both is linked, but I think it is likely: 1. I updated to AIRAC 1712 today. 2. My flight preps from Penang to Lahore (WMPK-GEC8991-OPLA) struggled due the FMC notiication 'LN: 276 ERR at GATES'. No runways, SIDs, nor STARs were visible on the DEP/ARR page. 3. I fell back to the previous AIRAC and everything is fine again. Is AIRAC cycle 1712 corrupted or was it a mere coincidence? LN: 276 ERR at GATES
