  1. Hiya I was looking for a skilled pilot who is willing to do a shared cockpit with me. I have been doing simulation flying for 7 years now and I have P3D Please contact me on aryan.khanna2002@gmail.com aryanthegamer5@gmail.com or aryanvatsimva@gmail.com Kind Regards Aryan
  2. Updated October 7, 2017 Updated Shared Cockpit Airliner List Below There are many terrific aircraft in flight sim, but as far as many experienced flight simmers are concerned the two best aircraft (fidelity, realism, performance) ever developed for desktop flight simulation are the Majestic Dash 8 Q400 Professional and the Leonardo Fly the Maddog MD-80 Professional. The guys at Leonardo did things with the MD-80 back with FS2004 that nobody else did until Majestic released the Dash 8, but even the Dash was developed under FSX (and then P3D) and Leonardo did these things under FS2004! Of course both these aircraft are Shared Cockpit capable! The Maddog was ported over to FSX, meaning that there was no way it could be ported again into P3DV1/2/3, and certainly not into P3DV4. I'd communicated with Davide (owner of Leonardo Software) several times over the years about updating the Maddog, and even tried to get other developers including Aerosoft interested in purchasing the rights or working with Leonardo to re-develope the Maddog for FSX and P3D, but nobody was interested. I then opened talks with Davide about purchasing the rights to the Maddog software, but that too didn't work out. This aircraft is so terrific that several friends and I have kept FSX installed for the sole purpose of flying her and one other aircraft (MD-11), but overall it seemed that the flight sim community would loose this amazing aircraft. UPDATE: Last week it was announced that Leonardo has already begin work on re-writing the Maddog software for P3DV4! I've spoken with Davide and my primary Shared Cockpit test partner (Grant) from the Dash 8 Q400 Professional project will be helping with the new Maddog. Regarding the Dash 8 Q400... if you're not aware, Majestic changed their mind about the development timeline for making the Dash 8 compatible with P3DV4, so we'll have this, the other of the two best aircraft ever developed for desktop flight sim, back in our hanger as well! For those who haven't experienced flying either of these two STELLAR aircraft - especially in Shared Cockpit, you'll be in for a MAGNIFICENT EXPERIENCE. With that, I'm EXCITED to update the Airliner Shared Cockpit list. It's going to be a GREAT 2017/2018 for shared cockpit flying!!! Best wishes to everyone.
  3. I know the basics, have everything setup, and can fly solo on VATSIM (FSX). However, I am still making mistakes and I believe that flying with someone and just watching them will help me a lot. If you wouldn't mind flying with me, please add me on skype : awesomedude7128 Thanks
  4. On Saturday, November 25th I hosted the Annual Flight Simulation Web Conference (2017). For those of who you who were not able to attend you may watch an unedited recording of the broadcast below. I'm mentioning this because the focus of this year's conference was Shared Cockpit, and there are some big things happening in the Shared Cockpit genre of our hobby. Subscribe to either the OVPA Facebook Page (see my signature below) or Youtube channel for notice of Part 2 of the conference. Best wishes.
  5. This is a breakaway post from a Shared Cockpit discussion taking place in a thread in the PMDG Forums. I created this thread to prevent deraining the other thread, which was about Virtual Cabins. DISCUSSION CONTINUED Going back years ago I had several private message sessions with Ryan about this. First it was something he said they were planning (his words Rob) but then things changed. Then later it was something they wanted to do, but things changed again. Then he posted openly that the programming for shared cockpit was too much work, their wasn't any documentation in the SDK, etc., etc., etc.. It's just that (at least then) the folks at PMDG (or at least Ryan) didn't understand the difference between the code that Microsoft gave us for shared cockpit is not what was being used by other developers (because it wouldn't work for for all the functions that a third party aircraft has). At least up to the point when Ryan posted this, it wasn't their thing and they weren't interested enough in shared cockpit to research it (well actually, I did tell him that one couldn't use the Microsoft Shared Cockpit functions and all that, but he must have forgotten). Leonardo created fully functional Shared Cockpit for their incredible Fly the Maddog MD-80 in both FS9 and FSX, and systems wise that aircraft still revivals any aircraft in flight sim today, and Digital Design also did this for their Fokker and were supposed to add Shared Cockpit to the Concorde but sadly that never materialized. I've been meaning to talk with Hans about this, but he's been really busy with CRJ - which I can promise you is a terrific aircraft! I sincerely hope PMDG will change their minds about Shared Cockpit at some point, as I agree that a Shared Cockpit capable PMDG 737, 747 or 777 would be incredible! I think what is needed is for a lot of people to start asking them about it again, and point to the successes other developers have had with it. I'm immensely grateful that Oleksiy at Majestic and Collin at TFDi Design for being far more open minded and implementing Shared Cockpit, and for Mathijs at Aerosoft for having the foresight to do so! My huge thanks to them all, but especially to Oleksiy at Majestic for being open to listening. He created the first shared cockpit capable airliner since the Leonardo/Digital Aviation days. Also, what Collin and Joshua did with the Shared Cockpit interface was absolutely terrific! What Aerosoft is planning for the upgraded Connected Flight Deck is going to be completely different than what anyone else has done before and I'm looking forward to seeing it.
