  1. Have been virtual flying since 2007 off and on. The reason for the off and on is because I have never been able to land consistently. Everything is fine until I disengage the AP and have to manually fly the last few thousand feet. Can someone give me some advice to better prepare myself for landing? I mostly fly the PMDG 737 NGX and Feelthere ERJ 145.
  2. Hi, l am new to the forum. I have submitted support requests to PCA on the 2nd Sep, with follow up requests on the 12 & 18th Sep - all unanswered. l have submitted a further two requests on the 19th Sep for new keys to carenado aircraft wihich have also not been answered. Is anybody on the forum having similar problems with PCA? cheers, john
  3. Hello, My name is Greg and I came here for knwolegde and tips. I've been playing for two weeks and I really like it, so I decided to look into the largest treasury of knowledge - the Forum. Nice to meet you, thank you in advance for help :-)

    Hi all!

    Hi there! I'm new here. I hope I'll be able to find the posts and info here handy.
  5. Hello all! I've always wanted to try flight sims, and have tried here and there, but I really want to up the immersion and have been looking at flight controllers, and googling has yielded mixed results, some say stay away from logitech saitek and ch while others say they are great... -I am a complete newcomer so anything would be an upgrade and so far I am liking the price of the Logitech G Saitek PRO Flight Yoke System 945-000023 on eBay for $138 so is this option good? -Rudders aren't included, but I have seen them at low prices however, they are different brands. Is that okay to use? does all the gear have to be the same brand?

    Help a new member

    Hope someone can help me out here, bought My Traffic 2010 Aerosoft off Amazon, installed it on my computer, go to chose aircraft on free flight but they are the existing options and not the additional options from the disc. I go to a flight and find other aircraft are the additional options but I can't select one to fly
  7. Hello all, just renewing my interest in flight sim after a long break from FSX. My using Windows 10 64bit & looking at updating my PC & moving to P3Dv4. But hope to use existing monitors I have (3x Samsung S24A450BW (vision) & 2 x Samsung Syncmaster 940B (panels). I have all Saitek gear - Yoke, Throttles, Multi panel, Switch Panel & Combat pedals.(Logitech G X52 TBA). I am a retired Aircraft Engineer so mostly interested in PMDG airliners, a few militiary jets & classic piston. Game inputs & Monitors (landscape) will be mounted on easily reconfigurable VESA frame (airline / fighter options) I have read what I can, but am confused about which video cards / Tripple Head2Go / video cable specs & limitations. Note all my current monitors have DVI inputs. (I would be happy to replace 2 x S 940Bs with 2 x ASUS 23" VC239H (16 x 9) DVI & VESA mount.) New computer build (cost options) i7-6700K, Z370-A, GTX 1070 OC 8GB, DDR4 3000 C15, 2 x 500G M.2 EVO, 2 x WD HDD 2T 850W PSU. Any comments from those with similar 5 monitor rigs using P3D V4 and settings to achieve 30fps? About to leap into the next generation of flight simming :-) David
  8. hey guys i was just wondering they should add mounted gps in cockpit of a dc 9 skyaviation
  9. Greetings from the Caribbean to ALL. Thanks for the welcome. I have not been very active on Flight sims for a long time and recently jumped back in with the release of the Steam Edition of FSX. I also bought the PMDG 777 last week and have been learning the aircraft ever since. I will say, it was a bit overwhelming at first but with a lot of reading starting to understand a lot of the systems. I don't think I can ever fly a default plane again. Anyways, very nice community you guys have going here. Tons of useful info on here.
  10. Thanks to the system admins who make it easy to sign up for access. I was a big user of this site( on a modem!!) back in the 1980-90's when I lived in Fluvanna County but I drifted away over the years. Now retired, living in Portsmouth and getting back into flight sims - FSX-Steam and X-Plane. Apparently my account had understandably been inactivated/purged so it was great to get re-started so easily. Thanks again
  11. Hi all good to be ther my name is Einir and from Iceland hat some hobby as devlop, bin for meny years arund the Dreambox hobby. I hat start to look on FXS Planes devlop Yours Einir

    Hi guys!

    Hi guys, Just joined here at AVSIM, i'm Ivar from the Netherlands~ How are you guys? The reason why i joined avsim is that i always googled my simulation questions and saw avsim mostly at the top of my results. So i thought i should probably join them Love the PMDG products so far. Like to fly the 737NGX and just bought their 777-200/F (Great plane!) Regards~ Ivar
  13. Hi Anyone with info on turning on or adjusting the lighting on the instruments (EX: airspeed, altimiter) on an F4 Phantom ?
  14. Hi all, I'm a new user so should introduce myself. I'm a PPL pilot and have an FSX sim running win7, decent graphics running over 3 screens with a fair amount of Saitek hardware. It works well and tbh, am happy with it. I'm here to hopefully gain some insights on the future of avsim and how I can possibly build a bigger/better sim for the future with better hardware and software. I'm new to the forum so please be kind. With all respect to those longstanding users on here, I've had many unpleasant experiences in the past on other sites from the "typical" armchair enthusiasts (think comic book guy from the Simpsons) who enjoy ridiculing and belittling people of lesser experiences. I'm really not interested in any of that. I'm not a total ignoramus, but completely accept I am far from as knowledgeable as some. That said, I can and do learn. I know it's a pitfall of forums, but all i ask is "polite - not patronising". I hope that's ok. So I would love to upgrade my home sim and at the moment, I cannot find any reliable information as to which direction I should go in for the software platform. It would be a serious dream come true to involve a small motion platform and with the advent of small "home sized" hardware, this will surely become an affordable reality in the future. I guess the big question (which might not have a perfect answer at this stage) is what do you guys think will be the future software to think about working with? There seems to be some promising developments for the home user but no concrete advice as to which to go for. As a separate question, what software do the professional training SIMS use? Are these bespoke systems developed by the aircraft manufacturers? I can't help but wonder that they must, along the way, use similar graphics and computing technology that is available to us mere mortals - and if so, accepting the astonomical costs, what are the essential differences between a static Boeing flight training sim and a home made equivalent? NIce to be here and i hope I can make some mates interested in building our dream sims!!! All the best Dave Jones
  15. Good Morning all, I have been a long time user of avsim's amazing file library and un-registered lurker of great library of knowledge in the avsim forums. The question that brought me to registering is quite simple, why isn't there a 'Un-official Eaglesoft Support Forum'? Just about every other dev house or provider is covered. I am well aware that Eaglesoft has their own official support forum and at one point in time I had access to it, but my account is pending approval and the email to their support address has been unanswered for weeks. I had honestly assumed the worse, that they had gone out of business. I was relieved to find that Ron and Ed frequently post here on avsim. I'm not expecting that the Eaglesoft team provide the same level of support in the un-official board here, there are plenty of Eaglesoft enthusiasts who will help each other. Anyways, I look forward to buying the Citation X for a 4th time! (v1 FS9, v2 FS9 and FSX, and hopefully v3) Thanks,
  16. Hi Jim, thank you for the welcome. After a hectic weekend at family wedding back to normality. After a flying career on helicopters in the Royal Navy i took up flight sim on Microsoft 2000, flying all scenarios and a box load of add ons. Now having just purchased a Mac OS X El Capitan, those programmes are not for this machine so thought buy X plane 10 Global, after seeing you tube videos with all the attendances of push back cargo loading and flight services great, loaded up all discs but the free add on would not load. Found out faulty disc have returned for replacement. Started up programme and flew cessna, but have no clue how to use rest of set up. Are all the support services on add ons? On Microsoft 2000 could programme all flights, weather Captain speaking, ATC, but looking at x plane everything has moved on, especially graphics, scenery,support services. Any Advice welcome regards Bob

    New from Ireland

    Hey, my name is Paul and I'm from the Galway, on the West Coast of Ireland. I'm a relative newbie to this wonderful hobby ( I tried to play it more like an arcade game many years ago). Now at the ripe old age of forty I've decided to engage fully with it. And boy does it turn from a hobby into an obsession real quick! I don't think this is the place to post hardware questions, so I'll just say hello to everyone and hope to chat and get to know some of you

    New from Bristol UK

    Hi All, I'm Marcus from the UK. I used to Fly FS years ago, but as I wasn't very good I stopped after a short time. I wanted to get back into it about a year ago as I spent a lot of time watching Youtube and found ILS landing which seem to fix my main issue with FS (I.e I could not land a plane if my life depended on it). Problem was I could not find a copy of FS for sale anywhere apart from Ebay and for the age of the game the price seemed a bit steep. Then I spotted that FSX had come to Steam, so I bought it (a week before it went on 80% off special offer LOL). I spent the first 2 months just flying the default planes and learning how to take off and land VFR, IFR and ILS approaches, didn't really fly the big boys mainly the caravan. I did move onto the 737 with an upgraded VC, but felt it was too big for my little flights across Europe. Decided I wanted a Biz Jet so downloaded a free on (Citation X), which I loved. After deciding I really Liked Biz Jets I wanted to upgrade the experience so decided to look for a paware biz jet, which is how I found this site as I was trying to find out which ones were best and which ones would run on my windows 8.1 FS-SE Set up. I had 3 planes on my shortlist, Eaglesoft Citation X, Flight 1 Mustang and Caranedo Pheenom 100. Ended up with the Pheenom as its the only one of the 3 that's seems to work fine with 8.1 and SE as far as I can see. Its a great plane, though I have been having issues with my ILS as so far 50% of the time it does not pick up the glidescope, so I need to work out what I am doing wrong as I could land ILS 100% on non payware planes. I might have cracked it last night, but I need to retest to see if it was luck or something I actually did.
  23. Hey all Another newbie here. I've been simming on and off since the days of MSFS 98. I now use FSX:SE and I have a bought some nice add ons. Thinking of making the switch to P3D but I'm not really sure if I would have to re purchase my addons so I'll need to do a bit more research. Anyway, I received countless help from reading these forums and I could never say thanks as I wasn't registered. So now that I'm registered, thanks to anyone who has helped me out in the past. I just hope I can return the favour some day. Neal.
  24. hello when can new members post in the mainPrepar3d forum ?? theres no start new topic
  25. Hi, I'm new to the forum here, I live just 15 miles from LOWI and enjoy flight simulation since many years, starting with Sublogic already on Amiga 500 back then. I'm looking forward to having a nice time here. Cheers, kaha
