  1. 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
  2. I am in the process of learning the nuances of Prep3DV4 but still have and use FSX. I want to find the answer to a riddle of Prep3D. I refer to the apparent gap between ATC comms and FMS operations. It appears that one can have either an up to date whizz bang FMC or one can have ATC comms but not both. The options for the two technologies to work together in Prep3D are just about none existent as far as I can tell. The only popular exception to this rule (that I know of) is the QW 757 in FSX which has the ability to load an FSX flight plan into the FMS and use that for the flight giving both FMS navigation and ATC comms facilities. Whilst this is not perfectly accurate and one cannot plan departures and arrivals in the native flight planner, but it has to be preferable to a complete flight with no ATC comms or interaction whatever especially if the user has AI aircraft flying all over the place. However, using an aircraft FMC and ATC using the same flight plan appears to be “A bridge too far”. For example, I purchased both the Aerosoft CRJ and the Captain Sim B757 for use in Pep3D4. But at this stage they are both in a locked hanger because of the communications ATC/FMS black hole. I also purchased FSBUILD only to find that it doesn’t output flight plans in formats suitable for the above products it will however produce a native flight plan. It would be possible, though hardly practicable, to make a standard Flightsim/Prep3D flight plan using the inbuilt sim planner or another product, print it out and then use the printout to load the FMS manually, (what a drag that would be) so much for the computer age! It is interesting to note that simple GPS equipped aircraft do use the inbuilt flight planner for the GPS plan. So how do others manage or circumvent this issue or is it just ignored and the choice between ATC or FMS planning made. Perhaps there is a flight planning program that can be used to produce both native and special format FMC flight plans I would pay good money for such a product.. I look forward to hearing other members views and solutions on this issue.
  3. I am working my through the Introduction for my new QOTSII. When I opened the FMC for the first time I noticed that the rego number, N747RR is not the same as the livery rego, N744PM. The Introduction makes the point that the FMC rego and the livery rego should always be the same. ?? Can I correct this? Rob Stevenson
  4. Hellow guys! I am having an issue with the 737 FMC. I can understand that the terrain on copilot side is inhibited for better performance but I don’t know why the FIX doesn’t either work. For example I am in the Copilot’s CDU FIX page and i am entering the FIX(AB,USA or whatever). As soon as i click on the L1 button,it returns back to the FIX page without any fix. But meanwhile it works normal on the Cap’s CDU. and besides,I can not type anything into the FMC by using my keyboard although I do click on the scratchpad and it shows up the green edge which means I am suppose to type in with my keyboard. But it just doesn’t work... So I click on the TAB key which usually deactivate the co pilots scratchpad but it doesn’t either work,the green edge still remains
  5. 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
  6. hi, i am flying the Do228, AC690 and (Alabeo) DA-42. At least the Do228 has a basic FMC, the DA-42 has a G1000. I installed the latest Navigraph update for Carenado (filename "carenado_1712.exe"). I did that for the first time. However, the FMC and the Garmin does still show old data. Navigraph data has been installed into the following folder: "F:\Prepar3D v4\CarenadoNavigraph" How to get it working, that FMC/GPS shows the new airac data? thanks, regards
  7. Hey guys, when I enter the SID I'm using in the APP/DEP page in the FMC and execute I get a solid line that goes straight off the runway and doesn't turn it just keeps going straight, however once I delete the SID which for instance mine was "SYKES7" the navigation line turns and goes to my next waypoint, any idea of what's going on? I watched a Youtube video explaining why and what to do but I forgot. Any help is much appreciated!!
  8. Hi folks, not sure whether both is linked, but I think it is likely: 1. I updated to AIRAC 1712 today. 2. My flight preps from Penang to Lahore (WMPK-GEC8991-OPLA) struggled due the FMC notiication 'LN: 276 ERR at GATES'. No runways, SIDs, nor STARs were visible on the DEP/ARR page. 3. I fell back to the previous AIRAC and everything is fine again. Is AIRAC cycle 1712 corrupted or was it a mere coincidence? LN: 276 ERR at GATES
  9. Hi, I am trying to get my PMDG 747 Queen of the Skies running. I seem to be having trouble with the FMC, and have been following youtube tutorials to see what the problem is. I have noticed that my Nav Data: AIRAC-0802 (Active Feb14Mar12/08, and wonder if that might be a problem. Do I need to get an update for that? I did load an update from the website v1.2, but don't know if there is another update I need to do for the nav data? I am getting "not in database" error messages. Also, at one point when I got to the activate and then pushed "exec", and it took me back to activate instead of moving forward to the next step. Not sure enough to know how to proceed?? Any help would be apreciated. Thanks, Kent.
  10. Hello, I'm a flight sim enthousiast, I quit don't understand these parts of the auto LNAV and VNAV descent... On the first picture you see the FMC descending numbers you know what I mean... Can I have some explaining please what means the 'A' next to the 3000 and also why is after 3000 a 7000 and a 6500 feat? When I reached the T/D I put my final descend in the MCP which is at Ibiza 3000 and then I descend always with Vertical Speed above 2000 but that is not realistic? What do I have to do when I descend my plane to not use the Vertical Speed? Can the plane auto descend until I reached 3000 and then to put the Autopilot off and land it myself? Or is it normal that I have to use the VS that high always...? I'm sorry I can't explain this what I mean exactly... If someone can help me I'd be grateful, my English is not perfect but I tried to explain it. Please if someone knows the answer tell me ;) Greetings, MIQUEL
  11. Hi, I tried to insert an offset to get around a storm, but as the weather changed, I erased the offset and since then only the pilot's and isle fmc show "MSG" and do not react to any imput e.g. selecting waypoints or typing in a new speed. all the other keys and the copilots fmc do work well. when I go to menu in the pilots FMC "MSG" is not showing anymore. Anybody ever had the same issue? or maybe an idea whats wrong? Thanks in Advance guys and many happy landings!
  12. Hi there guys. Discovered a bit of an issue with latest NGX version. I managed to replicate this issue twice. When you double click on the FMC 2D panel it causes the sim (P3DV4) to freeze up and hang, resulting in a crash. As far as my research shows I have found no other post about this. No error message or log is created either. My Specs: i7 6770K, GTX 970, P3DV4, PMDG NGX 737, ASP4, Aivlasoft EFB, REX Soft Clouds, Orbx Global, Fly Tampa Schipol. Cheers, Voumani Madonko
  13. So, when loading one of the presaved tutorial flights i.e 'Before Takeoff' or 'Before Top of Decent', for the EHAM-LOWI tutorial, the FMC does not allow any editing. I can copy entries into the scratchpad, I can see all the different pages on the FMC, I just can't actually edit anything. Any ideas?
  14. 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,
  15. I am having trouble with the Boeing 737NGX. I am trying to program the route for my check flight. When I try to select a SID, I can either select the SID, then not be able to select the transition. Or I can select the Runway to filter the SIDs, then be unable to select a SID. Can someone help me please?
  16. charliemcewan Hello, Can anyone assist me I only just installed the above but do not know how or where to find manuals /user guide?
  17. Hello, Is it possible to control FMC inputs from the central CDU? I've searched for an answer but can't find a reference. Best wishes, Luke
  18. Not an issue...mostly the operator but where is the setting to display both FMC's. Somehow or another I got it in single mode. Thanks, Bob M.
  19. hi. I have a problem setting up a bearing/distance waipoint in the flight plan approach on LOWI airport. here is what i did: i hit on INN on legs page to copy it in scratchpad . than added 264/+6 so it looks like: INN264/+6, and putted it under the org INN waipoint and becomes INN01. BUT... the bearing is 275 on the legs page and shows also on the ND where it is almort in the path of the runway tried an other bearing like 200 but still keeps setting it on 275 beering ... is this a bug ?? or.... has somebody als this problem ? please help..
  20. A brief FMC setup tutorial for the queen
  21. Hi Kyle or Ryan, I noticed that the Cost Index gives different ECON speeds depending on engine variant. PW CI90 equals GE/RR CI180, more or less. I thought it was more an FMC variant problematic (if any) than an engine one... Curious about that. By the way, I would guess giving the real world data you may find around that the correct data is the PW one. Cheers, Alex
  22. hi , Before all THE PMDG 747-V3 is amazing !!!. Now the problem : Why does not heve any sid or star in the fmc for LLBG AIRPORT Please your help. Thanks.
  23. Hi all, I don't know what is the problem, I cannot load the data from my FMC, when I input the departure airport like VHHH, it said there is not in data base I have the updated AIRAC1701, and I can't even load all my saved flight as well Can somebody help me solve this problem? Thanks Anthony Yuen
  24. CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHY WHEN I CREATE A FLIGHT PLAN IN PFPX I CAN SAVE IT I CAN LOAD IT INTO MY PMDG 737 777 AND MD11 BUT I CAN NOT LOAD IT IN MY PMDG 747 IT WILL NOT SEE IT ANY HELP APPRECIATED. THERE MUST BE A SIMPLE REASON.
  25. Can someone advise me how to bring up the FMC INIT screen in X-Plane 11? All the FMC tutorials start out with hitting that button to initialize new settings. X-Plane has an official video showing the new layout. In the video there are apparently clicks to get there, but no narrative of what was clicked. This is the video from XPlaneOfficial: https://youtu.be/YfX6R4V3V_c?t=160 As you can see in the video he goes to a screen that looks like the first image below. I try to follow the steps exact, but I get a different screen. The video goes to a screen where that has "<ROUTE MENU PERF INIT>" in the menu. That is the screen that I can't get to. The closest I can get it the screen that has "<ROUTE MENU VNAV>" in the menu. The FMC in the Video: The FMC in my screen: All the tutorial and videos on the FMC starts out by telling the user to click on the INIT button to start the programming. So, at present, I'm having the same problem with all the references to using the FMC that I'm having with this, which would most likely be resolved by being able to get to the screen that is in the Official Video. Thanks in advance for any suggestions or comments! -- L. James -- L. D. James ljames@apollo3.com www.apollo3.com/~ljames
