Hello. I've been simming for near enough half my life now, but one thing I've never really been able to get to grips with it Trans-Atlantic flights. I don't know where to find tracks, how to request clearance for it (I fly on Vatsim near enough always), ETOPS planning, I know nothing about it, but I'd really love to do it. So, my request is, can someone write a short dummies guide on how to find the active tracks, how to put them in the FMC or MCDU, expected conversations with ATC, how to calculate ETOPS alternates, etc etc. Thanks in advance, Alexander.
Good Evening Gents, Well I've been waiting for the previously promised in-depth tutorial #2 for the T7 that was promised by PMDG since the launch of the service pack (because they always launched their second tutorials after a SP), but I can't see any plans for one. So does anyone know if there's anything on the horizon for the tutorial? Much appreciated, Mohammed El-Dakamawy
Hello everyone, I'm planning my first ETOPS flight with the -300ER, and I have noticed something unusual. The performance profile on PFPX shows a lower diversion speed for the ETOPS scenario to the -200LR, resulting in a reduced diversion distance. Now this came as a bit of a surprise to me as the two aircraft use nearly identical engines, albeit with different thrust ratings. However, I guess this would make sense, as we are dealing with a higher gross weight and drag. The manuals didn't help much, as they directed me to look at airline specific procedures. Is this difference in diversion speed schedules also the case with IRL dispatching? The scenario I'm after is ONE ENG DECOMP and I'd appreciate if someone could offer some real life insight into ETOPS planning with this aircraft. Best regards.
