  1. Hi there i got some problems with my fbw a320nx . For example today i tried to fly from epwa (Warsaw) to eddb (Berlin) , i done everything as always and when time came for approach to set in fplan i could not enter any STAR there was no stars to choose only. I had this problems on every german Airport i tried and on some of not german ones too.
  2. For a couple of years now, FS2020 has been behaving inappropriately at touchdown and at takeoff. Occasionally there is an almost uncontrollable skid at the point that the aircraft tires first contact the ground (or depart the ground). This is exacerbated if there is any crosswind - even a mild crosswind can be problematic at times, but add in a stiffer crosswind, say in the teens, then you're talking about tires running on molasses and wings lifting off the ground even with full aileron deflection. I would estimate that this has happened to me about 30% of the time - in other words, it isn't a constant occurrence. Many times touchdown was fairly normal and liftoff was appropriate, even with stiff crosswinds. Then there is the other 30%, where loss of control is severe and there is hardly any response to control inputs. Lately, things have flipped for me - my last 3 flights have lost all semblance of reality at touchdown. Crosswind strength varied from 3 kts to 16 kts. In all 3 cases. the aircraft skidded across the runway with a bank angle of almost 30 degrees - aileron and rudder input did nothing. I was not able to reestablish control until I had braked to about 3 kts. Fortunately, the aircraft was not damaged in any of these touchdowns but it certainly ruined the enjoyment of having made 3 good approaches, Come on ASOBO! This is really basic stuff. If you cannot take off appropriately and land appropriately with proper control response, you do not have a flight simulator.

  4. Name: PMDG 777 Autoland Category: FS Instructional Videos Date Added: 03 November 2016 - 07:16 AM Submitter: davidfein Short Description: Shows the details of how autoland works so you can duplicate solid landings yourself Learning to land the PMDG 777 was a challenge so I recorded a number of views of the PMDG 777 doing an autoland. Seeing the details (speed, decent rate, engine kill, flare details, etc) makes it much easier to learn to land because you have very specific things to model and practice. View Video
  5. Hi guys, as title says. Which is your technique? I have no problem when try to land manually after passed 1000' AGL, disconnect A/P and A/T and land safely enough. But if I want to practice manually all the approach from IAF to FAF I have a lot of difficulties to keep the aircraft on correct glide path. I try to maintain the G/S adjusting the throttle and pitch manually, but most of the times I am to high on final and with an incorrect pitch configuration. The aircrat upon on final regains altitude and I have to make a go-around. How do you perform your manual landing with this great aircraft? Thanks in advance, Ric
  6. Hi sir, I just want to ask a question regarding on my experiences with the ILS for your 777. Im having some problems whenever i go off track of the STAR so that i can take a shorter route but every time i do this, the ILS frequency disappears on my PFD. If i follow the STAR the ILS frequency is still on my PFD and it follows the LOC. One other thing, if i go off track of the STAR and try to line up on the ILS, every time i press the LOC, i can see a HDG on the bottom of LOC. I just want to know on how to do an ILS approach if i go of track of the STAR. I hope to hear from you, sir. Thanks, Francis
  7. Hey everyone, I downloaded Project Opensky's Korean Air 747-8i and completed a flight to Seoul/Incheon Intl. and as I often do, after landing and taxing onto the runway exit I watched the landing in instant replay from the external locked spot view mode, it was only then that I noticed a bizarre smoke trail from underneath the tail-end of the fuselage and also that my auto-spoilers had failed to deploy, because the landing went fine (although I did notice that it seemed to take a while to slow down to a suitable taxi velocity), I did not suspect anything of real concern whilst I was in virtual cockpit view. Can anyone shed any light on what may be causing the smoke trail and failure of spoilers to deploy? I've have uploaded the replay to YouTube (below) for you to watch so you can see what I'm talking about. Thank you in advance for your assistance
  8. Hello everyone, Its been a while since Iv'e posted a topic on AVSIM and this time I'm a little confused on the 'Minimums' callout upon landing. I already know that the Minimums is the lowest altitude you can get before touching down on the runway (correct me if I'm wrong). However, I was watching a video and the guy in it was landing and while doing so, said that he forgot to set the minimums and began to do that. I never knew you had to set minimums. So the question is: How do I know my minimums and how to set them (on the 737 like PMDG)? Please answer clearly so I don't get a headache while reading it Thanks for your answer, JWMuller
  9. Been simming for sometime but, I mainly stick to ILS landings and when I do visual approaches it's usually to airports I'm familiar will. I run into problems on visual approaches and landings at airports I'm less familiar with. Obviously, ATC will guide me to a certain flight level but once the approval is given for landing I'm on my own. Don't really have problems lining up with the runway but, I always have issues with altitude. Question; is there a standard way to use the A/P (VNAV) on visual approaches? Just to help with altitude? I know about the FPM calculations but is that what your guys/gals do? Or, do you really just fly it by hand? If so, do you practice approaches and landings at particular airports you plan to fly to? If you're truly able to "wing it" what helpful advice can you give? Is it just practice, practice and more practice? What works for you?
  10. Name: LPMA CIRCLING VOR DME 05 - Madeira Category: FS Aircraft Date Added: 24 March 2016 - 10:30 PM Submitter: Alpha Floor Short Description: None Provided 2nd video of my "Interesting Approaches" series. Today we fly into rwy 05 of Maderia, also known as, the "Kai Tak" of Europe. A really tricky approach (particularly when there's a crosswind) and I won't pretend like I got it right the first time Chart bundle for LPMA: http://www.ukvirtual.co.uk/dl/charts/lpma.pdf Also check here: http://www.rocketroute.com/airports/europe-eu/portugal-pt/plates-madeira-lpma.html Have a look at View Video
  11. Hi guys Here a short video - landing in Bogota - South America - Colombia Coming soon full video please suscribe and watch thank you https://youtu.be/73z-BRcelnI
  12. Hi I find that when I have the landing lights dim when the panel lights are on. After turning on the panel lights the landing and taxi lights are again bright lights and inside the VC you can still see the landing lights. Darryl
  13. So i did a landing comparison of the FSL320 vs. the FF320. A sidestick camera is included in both videos. Conditions are relatively the same during both landings. Variable winds /w light turbulence. I made more adjustments than needed to show the differences in response and feel. Enjoy P.S. I don't intend starting a war over which is better.

  15. Name: The Maderia Approach with PMDG 737 NGX Category: FS Instructional Videos Date Added: 27 May 2014 - 03:11 PM Submitter: Martinair50 Short Description: Doing one of the most dangerous approaches in the world on FSX. One of the most dangerous approaches in the world. This is exactly how the Visual 5 VOR to LPMA procedure should be executed. Please watch in HD! The video starts off with me approaching the Missed Approach Point (MAPt), you can see this point on the navigation display as MA05. From this point on I should have the runway in sight and the VOR part of the approach pretty much ends and I am fully visual. At around 6 DME from FUN at around 900 feet I should switch off the autopilot and start my base turn towards the runway, to cross the waypoint GELO at 850 feet. From then on I follow the approach lightning that brings me right in front of runway 05 of Funchal Airport. Thank you for watching please, subscribe rate and comment!

  16. Hello! I have an issues that I never used to have......Once im close to the runway and all straighten up with the run way, the pink diamond starts to move down, When that happens, I press approach hold (app) and it keeps going low and makes me crash before the runway! When do i click approach hold?? When the pink diamond STARTS to move or once its in the middle? Please help! This is for FSX, ILS landing.
  17. I have been trying to improve on some of the landing light textures for the POSKY A330 and the Project Airbus A380 as follows, but whenever I alter one of the lighting textures, they no longer switch on and off with the landing lights (glare from the landing lights remains on the fuselage even when the lights are off). For the feelThere E195 I have also been trying to find any lighting textures at all which will switch on and off with the landing light and tail logo switches in the cockpit. POSKY A330 I am trying to improve the textures on the vertical stabiliser, which are patchy and inconsistent on each side - but lights cease to operate properly whenever I alter a file; Project Airbus A380 I have added a nice glare on the fuselage from the landing lights as there was none before, and have the same result as for the A330! feelThere E195 None of the standard or add-on lighting for landing lights or tail logo is operable by the cockpit switches. Whenever any of the lights are on, the tail logo is lit and the landing light glare on the fuselage is there regardless of the position of the switches or the status of the landing lights. Does anyone have any ideas as to how to resolve these issues? Regards, brianlr
  18. 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

  20. i tried 4 merge, all of them i got 2 erros: 1. Landing Gear don't retract after takeoff 2. Lights don't show up! the last merge i read in an older topic here, i was just using the pss .air file and .cfg file, just replacing contact points and lights section of the .cfg with the posky ones. someone got that error too? how solved it? PS: Using 1.3
  21. Hi, I currently made "the Step" from FS9, to FSX. (yes it took a while). I'm currently setting things up and getting ready to fly. My main aircraft will be the NGX, with CH Yoke and Throttle Quad, FSUIPC. After hours of tweaking, and not getting the reverse thrust to work with the "below detent" position of the throttles, I decided to assign reverse thrust to a separate lever. That works too, -when on the ground. Obviously, the throttle must be idle in order to apply reverse thrust, however, for some reason the throttle of the NGX "creeps" up to about 42% N1, whenever I try to put it in idle before, during, and just after landing. It takes a good deal of braking before the throttles reacts normally, and REALLY goes idle, enabling reverse thrust to be applied. And by the time that occurs, the whole point of reverse thrust is gone, as would the aircraft be on a wet and short runway. In FSUIPC, I have disabled the reverser option in my throttles page, and calibrated them to be "idle" a bit above the physical stop of the lever, just to be sure. But still I get this creeping throttle when airborn and landing. Any help is much appreciated! Regards Johan
  22. I stumbled upon this video earlier. Even though the 777 is such a large aircraft, it is amazing to see how gracefully the landing gear meets the ground. I find it hard to believe that the landing gear can even support such a large bird. Anyways, I thought I'd share this with you guys. Arzaan Khairulla
  23. Hello, Guys! I've made a picture, you can see below. So Question is that if plane lands at these five yellow lines spots ahead of two big blocks then what will happen? Please See image closely.
