  1. I thought I would write a little post about my very first experience with shared cockpit in p3d v3.2.3. I don't have any friends in real life that enjoy flight simulation (well I do have one, but he hasn't gotten himself a pc yet, and is "fresh meat" in the flight sim miljeu). I made a couple of posts both here and on twitter requesting people to fly with. I got a few replies, and one of us hooked up this afternoon for a test. He was a nice Italian man who spoke English quite well, and we met up on Teamspeak which was his preferred medium. If it was up to me, we would have used Skype or some other desktop-sharing-capable medium. We talked abit about ourselves and our passion for aviation and experience with simming, and decided upon the technical side on how we were going to do the shared cockpit connection. There are basically two ways: You either do the port forwarding method in your router, or you use a VPN program like Hamachi. He had done his research, and recommended that we tried the port forwarding first since it's concidered the safer of the two options. After about an hour and several router and pc reboots I finally got it to work. We logged into Prepar3d, selected a cute little airbus a320 in Airbus standard colors, and loaded the cold and dark state. After turning on the battery we connected to eachother sucessfully on the very first try He as a master, and I as the "slave" hihi. We had talked earlier in the session that we would only do the technical stuff today, and we wouldn't have time to fly. After 30 minutes of oh'ing and ah'ing and confirming that when I flick this switch, it works on your side, we couldn't resist a short flight after all. We planned a flight from LIRQ to LIMC in Italy. Even though I was "just" the co-pilot, and had a BLAST! Of course, we stumbled upon eachothers flows and routines etc because neither of us had really studied the multi crew cockpit resource management flows beforehand. In addition to this, neither of us were all that well versed in the airbus - both of us being Boeing men We had a stall warning on take off, and fiddling with the CDU on cruise we were at FL260 at 15 nm from the destination airport. After entering a holding to loose some altitude, we went for the FAF, but since we hadn't found the correct STAR for the approach, we were both behind the aircraft. It was such a funny moment when I called "Go around!" when discovering that the gear wasn't down a few hundred feet above minimums I had been too busy trying to lower the flaps and monitoring our descent (we had flaps up when crossing the FAF and were high and fast). After a switft go around we made another try, and this time we were at flaps 3 when turning base, and did the landing checklist at around 2000 feet - confirming gear was down, three greens. You wouldn't think both of us had many years of experience with flight simming by the way we handled that flight, but oh my God was it fun I feel like a new door in flight simming has openened up to me, and the discovery of it is as major as when I first discovered Vatsim! Maybe even more so. I can't wait to do this again. We made an appointment again on wednesday, and I'm still trying to find more people to fly with to share this increadible realistic (or not) experience with
