  1. I had a problem that if I added an approach mid-flight, the airplane would do a 180 and go back to the previous waypoint before starting on the approach. I found a video that explain how you can work around this. Thanks to Clumsy for the video.
  2. Hello everyone, I am trying to "simulate" air taxi service between tropical islands. This is short and great way to flight However, i would like to make a proper and well-planned flight, since i am going to do it online on IVAO. My preferred A/C is DHC-6 Twin Otter. My departure is FSIA Mahe Island and arrival is FSPP Praslin. Well dep/arr is vicinity of Seychelles. There are many islands with small airports and airfields. My questions are below (i know there are too many!) 1- Should i go for IFR or VFR? Weather is almost always clear, wind is calm and visibility is good near Seychelles. How to decide? 2- How to select a cruising altitude for VFR? I read AIP/AIS of Seychelles, seems like its provide all information needed. Is that right way to start planning? 3- Is that possible to use ILS approach on VFR flight plan? Is this a VFR -> IFR or VFR -> VFR flight? 4- I am going to do same flight with Cessna 172. It does have all necessary equipment for IFR as far i know, so i can go for IFR, right? 5- I am little bit confused about terms IFR, VFR and Visual. Does Visual approach changes flightplan to VFR? As far i know, Visual Approach is a part of IFR. So flightplan should be stay same, right? Why and when Visual Approach needed? Is this possible to do Visual Approach on ILS runway? (Ignoring ILS and doing whole thing visually) So is this possible to do Visual Approach in VFR flight? What's the equivalent of Visual Approach in VFR? Or am i getting this completely wrong? As i understand, Viisual Approach is the VFR's itself. Because whole thing visual. So how about opposite scenerio? Can i use ILS approach on VFR? And does it changes flightplan to VFR->IFR? Any help and idea would be great. Thank you all.
  3. Hi guys, yesterday I landed my Leonardo MD80 in EDDL via RNAV 05R approach in FSX Stem Edition. This is the approach plate: https://fly.rocketroute.com/plates/adminview/EDDL_3-1-5_GPS___FMS_RNAV_Arrival_Chart_Transition_to_Final_Approach_%28Overlay_to_Radar_Vector_Pattern%29_RWY_05L_05R.pdf?cmd=pdf&docid=400000000096018&icao=EDDL Starting from DOMUX at FL140 down till to FAF NATOS to 3000' The strange thing is this: when I do the final right turn base to align with 05R (always following lateral navigation with FMC NAV TRK) the aircraft was completely misaligned with runway 05R (I arrive parallel to 05R and not aligned to) so I can't capture the LOC and was unable to capture G/S beacause I'm also too high, but I'm correctly at 3000' as indicated in the approach plate and confirmed in the altimeter. In your opinion is there a problem with default scenery EDDL in FSX? I suppose is not an aircraft issue. Has anyone tried this approach? Thank so much for your help, Riccardo
  4. Hi people! I recently made a flight in Alaska Anchorage (AK24 to PAZK). I followed ANC (Anchorage) VOR/DME to get the location of PAZK. Is this IFR? Is this VFR? I (think I ) know what are both, and their differences, but this just seemed to be a hybrid of them both (does it exists?) Weather was 20NM visibility, few clouds at, say, 5000ft. strong crosswinds (~20nm)... so no visibility or icing problems. Any input from a RW pilot or somebody knowledgeable is appreciated. Cheers and happy flying! Nicolás
  5. By 'hard IFR' I mean, maybe 400 ft ceiling, maybe light rain, in the clouds for a couple of hours. I, sometimes, look at my ol' C182 and wonder what the conventional wisdom out there is. Gregg
  6. Okay so I want to fly and IFR flight plan and I go the way points and set them in my GPS. But ATC gives me headings instead of allowing me to fly my route. Are the headings I get corresponding with my flight plan? Should I just use the headings or just use my flight plan? Help!!!
  7. I want to use fsx for ifr procedure training. My computer is rather week so i take all the graphix down to get more fps, but the instruments(ifr cockpit mode) sometimes 'jump', and is there a way to gette better resolution in the cockpit but not use to many recourses on outside graphix? How do i best set up the weather so that i get the wind gradient and the right turning the first 2-3000' ? if i just pick actual weather does it include that? Hope you can help me out making the last ajustments, really nice using it to learn the procedures in instrument approaches
  8. Hello Guys. I am a pilot based out of a Commercial US airport. I have made friends with one of the tower controllers. He is a super nice guy and when I am in town, he texts me when any interesting or high profile flights come through. (USAF F15 Flight of 4: touch and go and approach practices last week!) Anyway, for those of you who are unfamiliar with flight ops, in the US and most other countries, there is something called a Flight Progress Strip. This is sent to a special printer in the tower or enroute facility. There are strips for arrivals, departures, and enroute aircraft that pass through a certain facility. It contains information like AC Type, Routing, ALT, DEP & ARR Airports, etc. On a couple occasions he has given me flight strips for a flight that I was operating. I see no problem with this because the info is publicly available online of you just look on somewhere like flightaware to track an aircraft that I am operating. Well, he gave me a neat gift of an AF1 flight strip. The flight was already completed by the time he gave me the strip so it isn't like a had private information...at least i don't think. I would love to show this off to other pilots or on a forum like this. However, I don't want the controller to get in trouble and I don't want to get in trouble myself, especially since there is no malice intended. It is just very cool. This strip was given to me a couple years ago, at the time, the day after AF1 passed through the airport. What do you think? I might post an edited picture on here so that you can see what it looks like without giving away any information.
  9. How should I make my flight plan accessible to the FSX ATC?I have tried to load my IFR plan from FSX "load flightplan" in addition to loading and activating it in the fmc of my PMDG md-11.But:After I get my departure IFR permissions from FSX ATC I never get any ATC messages that is in accordance with my filed flight plan.Is it possible to file such a plan and actually follow it without "upsetting" the FSX ATC?RegardsKai
  10. Hi all, I am considering purchasing the RealAir SF260 for use in instrument training, primarily because of its smooth gauges. However, there is no POH available. While this is not a deal-breaker, it's certainly nice. Can anyone recommend a spot where I can download a POH that can be used with the Realair SF260? Further, can anyone recommend any other available aircraft (FSX) or add-ons that feature smooth gauges? I am looking into the RealityXP gauges (I currently use their 430) but am not quite sure how I'd get them into other aircraft I'm using. Any help is greatly appreciated!Thanks,Andrew
  11. So here it is: my first ever flight sim tutorial released on Youtube. Let me know what you think. I tried to make it as professional as possible, both piloting and video wise.
  12. So I am having a problem. FSX ATC is trying to take me to vectors to ILS at a runway, but I want to use the one I have on my FMC instead. Is there a way to make the ATC follow my route, or can I figure out which STAR it is trying to take me to so that way I can put it in my FMC?
  13. de belles images et un vol avec des explications (pour débutant ou autres 😉 )Bon visionnage.CLIQUEZ ICIBons vols à tous.Eric
