  1. Hello Fly!ers! I still use Fly!II more than any of my other sims. In fact, due to my schedule, I'm just getting around to flying the PMDG 777 & 757 for the first time! I know that seems strange, but I always knew I'd get around to them when the time was right. I'm semi-retired, but as I've started a new business, my flying time is still limited. I've run into some anomalies with both aircraft. I figured some of you might still be flying them. I know that they became very popular - I can't recall that there were a high number of issues, so I'm hoping that my questions might be easily answered. Before I spend time listing the items, I'll wait and see if those of you who put a good deal of time into these aircraft would be willing to respond (or are still around). :smile: With the unbelievable power of our modern computers, especially the one I use, it runs Fly!II and the other aircraft like a hot knife thru butter. Warm regards to all,
  2. I've created a flight plan from VHHH to ZGGG, and I've setup the fmc using the data as shown in the screenshot. However, why in the LEGS page, the speed isn't activated and in the PROG page, the econ page is set to 215? I didn't enter this number. FMC settings As you see in the LEGS, waypoint PORPA will be using 215/6000 instead of 250/6000

    FMC Freezes when i try to enter Cost Index

    Well,I use PMDG 777-300ER and everything was fine yesterday. I made a flight from LTBA to KJFK without any issues. Today, when i try to enter the cost index to FMC for another flight, FMC just freezed. I closed and restarted the game and tried to request that informations instead of entering manually. This time, when i clicked accept button, all entries became invisible. They just turned to blanks. I couldn't see any indent for any attribute. I even tried my last flight which i flied yesterday and all that FMC things were operating as normal, i get the freezing problem. Btw, all VC works without a problem, only FMC freezes. I also tried to delete the aircraft and reinstalled it. Nothing has changed. I amthinking of deleting the whole game and reinstall it again tho. If it wont help, then i will be done and not waste any more time on this.
  4. Good day! I recently bought the NGX 737 and I love it! I have 2 questions regarding it. 1 - Auto Pilot. I Came from using the stock 737 in FSX so I dont know what the LNAV AND VNAV do...I see everyone uses it in ILS landings but Im using to using VLOC and APP. Somotimes I click LNAV AND VNAV and i dont get a green light saying its been activated...so, how do I use auto pilot for ILS landings (NOT AUTO LAND) in the NGX 737? On a side note...where is the NAV/GPS switch so i can pick which one to use? 2 - FMC.....All i know is to set fuel, ground connections and a few other things like putting in the air port but i dont know the waypoint part since I never have any....I need to know how to use the FMC so it can tell me when to put my flaps and speed and all that.... Please send a link of a video or anything useful that teaches this. Its almost impossible to have a real flight without it. PLEASE give me a good starter flight plan for this so I can learn and last thing, SIDS, I dont even know where to find mine or what it is. Thank you In advance Mirakledba

    FMC Route Planning

    I'm running the PMDG 737NGX with P3D V4, Active Sky, and Navigraph Data. Just wondering what is the best way to create flight plan routes and load the route into the FMC? I know there are several software programs out there that do this, just wondering what others are using and what would work best with the PMDG FMC. Thanks John Swanson
  6. Happy Holidays everyone, I am enjoying my holiday today as I bought 2 new airports for my sim. I am traveling a real world route with FSCaptain from KMSP to KSFO. I can not figure out why FMC is not calculating altitude so that I can engage it. My Airac is 1712 Here is route KMSP/30L SCHEP9 ONL DCT NUXRO DCT VOAXA Q136 OAL DCT INYOE DYAMD3 KSFO/10L (or try 28L) I am reading the FCOM2 11.30.X-11.42.X (going up and down the pdf, Just can't figure out on what is happening). Any suggestions on what is happening (I have searched the avsim forums for this but can not find an answer that I am looking for). Can someone point me in a direction on how to solve this. Thanks Update: Around DYAMD - FMC calculates T/D and right about here I am able to activate VNAV for descent. Quite confused why it isn't working before and then it works
  7. Hello guys I'm having trouble programming PACOTS into the FMC when I program them it says the waypoint is like 4000nm away from me

    Funny 777 ZFW?

    when i manually enter fuel my ZFW changes and flips about. For example the correct one will be 209.1 kgs which then changes to 180kgs or something like that. I get around this by entering another random fuel level so the corrcect ZFW comes back then I re enter the desired fuel from my flight plan. Has anyone noticed this behaviour? (P3D 3.1). If it helps I use a 777 startup panel state of '777 short' but with zero payload and 17% fuel saved

    Super MD80 FMC Problem!

    Hi all! This has been talked about before but none of them have really had am answer! Recently picked up the MD80 as for I am adding MD80 routes for my virtual airline and I bought the Flight 1/Cool Sky Super 80 Pro when I configure the waypoints into my FMC and activate them like I do in the PMDG NGX however when I hit the NAV button it goes to heading hold. And when I push it again it goes to NAV CAP and instantly goes back to HDG HOLD please help! When I hit the FMS overide it does nothing! I dont like configuring the whole FMC i just tune in the VS and speed hold which I do in the NGX and it works fine! Please help I need to fly this this week! What dsoes the FMS overide thing do? -Collin Shea Thank You http://www.expressregional.com (Still working on fleet page...)

    Tried input FAJS into FMC it says not in the database

    No SIDS or STARS in FMC

    I have had the 777 installed in my Boxed version of FSX for a while. I recently switched to FSX Steam edition. I uninstalled the 777 and the expansion and reinstalled using the new installers in both the Boxed version as well as the Steam Edition. Trouble is that when Ioad a flight up in the steam edition I have no SIIDs or STARs listed for any airport. I have updated the AIRACs to make sure that was not the issue. The FMS shows that I have the lates AIRAC cycle loaded but no airport has SIDs or STARs. I have tried at KORD, ZSPD and EBBR. So far. Anyone had this problem?
  13. Hi all, I've recently started flying the J41 again and did the tutorial flight to get back into things which went smoothly. I have made my own flows based on the tutorial but after I have started the engines and turned the avionics switches back on, the FMC remains off. When I turn it on, the route I have entered AND the cruise altitude figure entered on the VNAV Data page have disappeared. I can't work out what i'm doing wrong to cause this to happen? I am loading the tutorial saved flight and then re positioning the aircraft so that it is in a cold and dark state - is that something to do with it maybe? Thanks

    FMC freeze

    Hello all, Currently flying LFMN-LICJ on the NG. Standard route, SODRI6A dep and GIANO2B arr with VOR-Z 07 approach. There is a discontinuity in the missed approach route (Navigraph AIRAC 1605). I canceled it and was on my way to Sicily. During cruise the FMC froze and I was unable to modify the route (directs). Apparently, what happened was that canceling that discontinuity made the FMC freeze. To unfreeze it, I simply uploaded my route again and made sure to not touch the missed app segment. Thats it! I don't know if it is a Navigraph bug or a NGX bug, but thought it would be useful to report it here. Mods, please feel free to delete if already discussed. Happy flying, Alex

    Airport Gate Database

    Is it possible to determine which gates at which airports are in the database? I sure spend a lot of time trying to init pos places that aren't in the database on the FMC.

    FMC Freezes on RTE DATA page

    Good Day, PMDG Team I've been experiencing FMC freezing when entering the cruise winds in the LEGS/RTE DATA page. I've noticed that happens on long trips with many waypoints. In shorts trips with no too many waypoints doesn't happen this. Only the FMC freezes, i can switch from one page to another, but i cannot tape or erase anything. The FSX and the aircraft keep running normally. Any way to solve this issue? Thank you for your time.

    Any FMC guide?

    Hi everyone, I looked over the internet for a full detailed 777 FMC guide or tutorial, found nothing but 737 FMC guide (pdf). As we all know, the FMC is the brain of the airplane and when you understand it, you understand almost 70% of your bird. Yes we can fly the 777 anywhere by knowing the basics of the FMC. But still. Thanks a lot.
  19. I've been away from simming for a while and just came back. Nothing has changed in my computer. I loaded Fs9 and then selected a PMDG 737-600. I downloaded a flight plan from simroutes. I was able to get the FMC to recognize the FP and then proceeded to program the FMC. WRONG! It took about 1-2 minutes for every transaction to be loaded. Constant hangs. After 30 minutes, I gave up. I reinstalled the PMDG 737 package to see if that would help. Nope. I can fly the plane without the FMC but thats no fun. What the heck is going on?
  20. Hi, on my last two flights i´ve had an issue. The FMC freezes, but this ONLY happens during the cruize phase. It freezes showing the legs page, and no matter how many times i press a button on the FMC, it doesn´t respond. Thanks in advance for your help!
  21. I am using the Wilco Embraer 175 & 195 on FS9. I am having problems entering the origin and the destination into the MCDU. Firstly, the origin does not automatically appear after aligning the IRS as the manual and online tutorials seem to show, rather Im left with some orange underspaces. If I try to manually enter the origin or destination ICAO code, the scratchpad displays 'invalid entry'. If I try and load a flight plan from the flight sim, the scratchpad reads out 'can not import plan'. Anybody have any ideas how to rectify this? Help is much appreciated because this looks like its going to be a fun plane to fly! Thanks Adam
  22. Hi, I didn't find answer on my question. In FMC (TAKEOFF REF page 2/2) you have 3 heights to set - ACCEL, EO ACCEL and REDUCTION. I have charts (screenshot is included lower in this topic) with noise abatement procedures on LKPR and I need your help, please - which height will be ACCEL, which EO ACCEL and which one REDUCTION? Thanks.

  25. 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
