  1. Hi everyone, my first post, so would greatly appreciate some advice. I’m getting in a knot understanding the relationship between my add-ons in respect of flight planning. I’m lucky enough to have a RW IR and a DA40 with an Aspen and GNS430s so fly the Carenado Bonanza inP3D for the same instrumentation. I want to create lower airways flightplans and fly them in P3D and that can also be understood by VoxATC. Am I correct in assuming I should create the IFR flight plan in something like Plan-G and then import it into ASP4? Or create the flight plan in P3D directly? What is the best given my add-ons? Yes, I have the weather engine turned off in Skyforce leaving weather to ASP4, but I’d appreciate some clarity on how I set all this up to fly an IFR plan and, hopefully, have actual rw weather en-route. I’ve tried to digest the user guides and not rush to ask what I should have read first, but I'm afraid the fog is getting thicker..!
  2. PMDG Team, Will be have access to the tabular data for each airframe and engine configuration you have built this around? Would like to build some aircraft templates for PFPX that I would be happy to share with the community (if that is okay). Ran in to some minor issues with this data from a competitor that just released and airbus for P3D (was already released for FSX. Also need this data for a performance tool that I am in the process of working on for the 737, 777 and soon 744.
  3. New at this...If I want to import a flight plan...i believe it will only accept .pln however I use (PMDG) and their file format is .rte. Is that possible? In case it isn't' is there an updated tool that will convert .rte to.pln succesfully. Thanks, Bob M.
  4. Hello Avsim-Community, I am new to the forums and actually quite new to flight siming aswell. I have some questions regarding scenery addons and two specific addon planes. I guess you get those kind of questions a lot but I wanted to hear specific answers on my questions, because all the research I did confuses me, because there are many many oppinions of course - in the end it'll still be up to me though I know So a few months back I installed my FSX again after probably 3 years and really started to get interested into flight siming. I got the PMDG 737NGX for my birthday and quite liked the depth of it. I did both tutorials, but I am struggling to really learn more about the plane. That biggest hinderance for me is the flight planning, it seams to me that you have to get PFPX and Topcat to really plan your flights properly, those tools are expensive though, and I don't know if it's worth it. Aren't there other ways to plan your flight for free. I know of "rfinder" but that doesn't tell you certain things like takeoff data and so on. To summarize my first "topic" so to say: - How did you learn how to fly the PMDG 737NGX? - How do you plan your flights properly? I also realized that I'd enjoy some GA aircrafts aswell (VFR flying), such as the A2A products: Cessna 172 or the new Cherokee 180. I really like there walk arround and "taking care" system. So the first question is: - Would you get the Cessna or the Cherokee from A2A? Coming to my last question. I thought, I'd like a nice scenery to fly a GA aircraft in. I am thinking of a ORBX scenery. I just wanted to here your oppinion about the different regions they offer and which one you'd recommend the most for GA flying. I had an eye on the PNW scenery, but the Australian, New Zealand and also the Northern California scenery are looking very great! My only concern was that ORBX offers payware airports in those regions, so you'd have to spend even more money, or are the airports in the scenery packs modeled better non the less? Okey enough text for now. I hope I posted that in the right section of the forum. Thank you for your help in advance. Greetings, Tim (Voxelfox)
  5. The NWS Aviation Weather Center (AWC) has begun production of the Traffic Flow Management (TFM) Convective Forecast (TCF). TCF is a high-confidence graphical representation of forecasted convection meeting specific criteria of coverage, intensity, and echo top height. The TCF is used by air traffic management decision makers in support of convective weather mitigation strategies within the National Airspace System. The TCF may be accessed at http://www.AviationWeather.gov/tcf. A training package may be found at http://tfmlearning.fly.faa.gov/. what exactly is this? weather +density of air traffic?
  6. Hi. Is there an option to create flight plans with an external program (FScommander etc.) and save them in what ever format MFD GPS needs, so they can then be loaded from the GPS. Were are the flight plans saved and in what format? Also is there going to be SID STAR updates coming? gps autopilot? Thanks BJR
  7. :smile: Hi All, When creating a flight plan (excluding sids and stars), should one always attempt to get onto the nearest airways, or doesn't that matter? Thanks in advance for your advice! Best, Lucky :smile: //////////////
