  1. I purchased the lionheart learjet and am happy with it but am having issues with the autopilot. I ensure the inverters are on I click the switch to GPS I then set the altitude say to 5000 feet I set a gps route (using the direct to option) I then engage the Autopilot and the green light is on and GPS mode is on I hit the ALT key to maintain altitude but then it starts losing altitude rapidly?? What am I doing wrong?
  2. Hello Bryan I'm loving your product so far. I have just one question. The FO it is not responding to my transition altitude and level calls. In both cases I think it is because neither the after takeoff checklist nor the approach checklist are completed. I don't know if this is intended, but as you may know, in some places the transition altitudes and levels are quite low and in some cases I need to do the transition call before the takeoff checklist and after the approach checklist. For example: I did a flight from SAEZ (TA 3000) to SBGL (TL090). In this flight the TA came before I could call the after takeoff checklist; and on my way down is the same. Could this be changed? In your other products I know that we can make this call when is needed. Thanks so much.
  3. Hey so I recently got the Feelthere Embraer series Aircraft (E-170, 175, 190, 195, 135, etc.) and did the tutorial flights and a couple of other flights in them. I think they are great I just have been having a bit of difficulty with the VNAV and FMC in terms of getting the aircraft to descend at the T/D. I follow the instructions on programming the FMC and I put in all of the altitude restrictions and set the AP to VNAV. The aircraft climbs, cruises and does everything fine but when the T/D comes up it doesnt descend. It does lower the speed though at each Speed restriction. Any Ideas? I thought it might be the altitude selection in the guidance panel because I set that to the cruise altitude but I tried lowering it and it still wouldnt descend. I followed the instructions very carefully for everything. I ended up just disconnecting the FMC and just flying the aircraft manually with the AP from T/D to landing. Thanks! ~Remy

    Cabin Altitude, Pass Oxygen

    Hi, My PMDG 777 is saying Cabin altitude and suddenly goes off-route and passes oxygen. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks, Jake
  5. Hi always when im flying the PMDG 777 i always seem to run into a problem. im taking off and i turn the auto pilot on, as soon as i get to 5000FT the airspeed the altitude heading and the artificial horizon just start moving up down side to side. i cant seem to fix this. there are no errors turned on or anything. please help i need this fixed asap!
  6. Ok, so say I have been designated a SID to follow after takeoff, the SID has strict rules for climbing for example at 4000ft at a certain waypoint, then 5000ft next one and so on. Then after takeoff atc instructs me let say for example "climb FL 150". Should I just forget the published restrictions and shoot up or obey the restrictions until past the last restriction point and then just climb to assigned FL? And if I follow the restrictions, say the ATC directs starts all of a sudden giving me vectors (which take me off my published SID lateral route) out of the terminal area, can I at that point forget about the alt restrictions since I am not even flying the published SID anymore? Thanks!
  7. Beech 1900D end-users, Is anyone else having problems with the altitude pre-select window (main panel, to the left of the transponder) locking up and not "scrolling" when enabling an altitude mode (hold or alt select) when the autopilot is on? It functions appropriately if the autopilot is off, or when the autopilot is not in any vertical speed mode, but refuses to budge when any altitude-based mode is engaged. Not sure how else to describe it... Additionally, I've encountered other bugs outlined below: 1. Intermittent failure of the top half of the digital VSI. This has only happened once so far after cycling through multiple 2D pop-up windows, but the top half the the VSI seemed to intermittendtly go blank, thus cutting off the info on the gauge. 2. Parking brake action (knob) is reversed. 3. No vertical speed mode available on autopilot. 4. No 1/2 bank angle mode on autopilot. Can anyone verify the veracity of the above. I am obviously still new to the aircraft, but I suspect the issues I've outlined are legitimate. Thank you, Sean K.

    Semicircular Rule and Turns

    Hello all, I'm in the process of planning an IFR flight from KATL to KFLL. In the route that I obtained from FlightAware (shown below), there is a short section where, according to the semicircular rule, I should be cruising at a different altitude. I'm wondering how this situation might be handled in the real world. Would a plane be asked to change their altitude after a turn in order to remain in constant compliance with the semicircular rule? Or, if there is no presence of traffic, would the plane simply stay at their original altitude? Route:
  9. Hope someone can help .I'm flying the default Learjet 45. I set my altitude for example at 5000ft using the ASEL key I engage the autopilot pressing the AP key then I Press the ALT key? But after a while it just loses altitude and crashes? What am I doing wrong? Also if I was to use the GPS , I select the GPS button next to the NAV Button do i also need to switch the dial to FMS? The dial which has FMS, ADF1, NAV1 and off ? What does the BNK button do? Is it for bank limits?
  10. Hi guys, I bought the Wilco A380 and I am finding some problems regarding the autopilot. Once I set the FMC with all the data and I take off, the plane does not even reach the altitude I insert in the main panel (let's say 12000 feet), but stops at 10000 about and then it starts descending (very slow, 500 feet/min), despite having both the autopilot and the autothrottle correctly inserted. Does anyone of you guys know why it doesn't reach the set altitude or maybe have you had the same problem? Thank you very much in advance to all of you guys, keep enjoying FSX! Mirko
  11. Hello all, I am kind of new to X-Plane (recently converted from FSX), so please forgive me if the question is silly. Well, I love the option to Randomly-Generated Weather in X-Plane 10.25, but I have two problems using it: - the visibility generated is always maximal, even if it is cloudy and rainy - the clouds are always very very very high (it never generates clouds below ~18.000 ft or so) Am I using it incorrectly? Is there a way to avoid these two issues? Any answers or comments would be very appreciated! Thanks a lot, Gilberto
  12. Hey guys, bit of a daft question but I'm coming back to the skies again on my channel and recording a flight from Birmingham (EGBB) to Dubai (OMDB) Can anyone tell me what the correct altitude is for Glideslope Intercept for Runway 12L for an ILS approach? I have the charts but not sure if it's just me being stupid I cannot see the altitude for glideslope capture on there? Thanks in advance! Yorkie
  13. I didn't think this would be the forum to post a question about a Feel There product (from what I understand Wilco didn't have anything to do with the V2 version) but I did notice some posts about these a/c here (which I love, great job FeelThere!!!!). I seem to be having trouble with the VNAV. I was fumbling quite a while the other day with getting the FMS to manage the altitude. By this I mean flying the altitude that is inputted into the FMS. The altitude will show MAGENTA on the PFD but the aircraft was only flying the altitude that is set by the ALT knob (the MAGENTA altitude was shown in smaller case numbers near the ALT knob altitude on the PFD). I pushed FMS button and then VNAV but could not get the system to start flying the FMS altitude. I am SURE I am doing something stupid. I looked through the manual and just could not resolve it. Any ideas?

    200LR Approach Help

    Good Morning fellow pilots, I am here this morning in seeking advice on decelerating in the PMDG 777-200LR. I am currently aware that you need to use speed intervention in order to get the plane to slow to final approach speed. However, I am unsure about what altitude to do this at, or what distance from the runway I should be at and be configured for landing. I have read a chapter in the FCTM about decelerating but it did not answer my question. Thank you in advance for your insightful answers.
