  1. As a disclaimer, I'm not familiar with the L.A. area, and I'm certainly no expert, just an avid flight sim enthusiast. That said, one thing that I would like to see in the new flight simulator is updated navigational data and all it entails, including waypoints, VOR stations, beacons, ILS, etc. So I took the liberty of comparing one of the screenshots for the upcoming sim and recognized KLAX on the navigation map of the airplane, and compared it to the same area in the Navigraph desktop charts program (current AIRAC): As I said, I'm no expert but you can see a few common waypoints, and it seems to me that the new sim shows quite a few more waypoints compared to the Navigraph map. Now whether they are just old waypoints that are not valid anymore or it is using a renewed navigation database, I have no idea. I should go into P3D and compare, but am away from home and my desktop PC for the next few days. Hopefully, someone can chime in. On the same topic, would you be willing to pay a monthly subscription for MS Flight Simulator if it included up-to-date AIRAC cycles? Any input is welcome, and I apologize if the screenshot just shows waypoints from the old database.
  2. Hello, I've started flying helicopters in X-plane around Lincolnshire, UK and am trying to use RAF Cranwell, Waddington and Coningsby tacan's to navigate my way around. Whenever I enter a frequency into nav 1, and make it an active frequency I pick it up as DME, just not VOR. I personally thought tacan is basically a military version of a VOR, but it seems to me it's more like a DME. My question is am I write or wrong in my theory? Or is X-plane 10 portraying tacans in the wrong way (which I doubt) And also how do the military use tacan to navigate, and how can I start doing this? Thank you very much Conner.
  3. Hi guys, So I want to try to fly using VOR so I used SkyVector to create a flight plan but I realized I have a question or two. My flight plan is: KHQM -> HQM -> V27 -> AST -> KAST How would you guys go about flying this route? Say you have to takeoff from runway 06: do you fly directly over the HQM VOR or would you turn and intercept the V27 airway? Also, on the takeoff minimums page at KHQM for departing procedure it says: TAKEOFF MINIMUMS: Rwy 6, 600-2 or std. with a min. climb of 260' per NM to 600. DEPARTURE PROCEDURE: Rwy 6, climbing right turn heading 110°: Can someone explain to me what "600-2 or std" means? And if you were flying out in real life at what point would you turn right heading 110? Sorry for all of the questions and thanks for any help! I'd post pictures but alas I don't know. I saved a screenshot of my SkyVector but I can't figure out how to post it in the forum. Thank you.
  4. Hi guys, Apologies if I'm posting in the wrong place, but couldn't really find the perfect place to put this question! I'm sure this question applies to every modern aircraft with a typical Navigation display on the MFD. But can anyone tell me: In the top right hand corner of the navigation MFD there's a time which looks like 000.0z which is the time to the waypoint tuned into the NAV radio. Can anyone tell me what unit of time this is?! Many thanks, Dan
  5. Hey guys, I am having some issues learning how to get the VNAV to work with the FMC and the flight director/autopilot. Everything is working perfectly except it is not auto controlling the vertical altitude even though I can see all of the flight levels in the FMC. The only way I can get the plane to climb or defend to the right altitude is to manually set it on the altitude control of the autopilot. I have attached a screenshot so you can see all of my settings. You can see that VNAV, LNAV, and A/T are all enabled on the autopilot and you can see that the speeds/altitudes are set for each leg.. I can't figure out what I am missing...Can someone help me sort out my confusion?
  6. Noticed this is freeware in the AVSIM library. Bought it 5 years ago on SimMarket (where I posted a review) and have had a few conversations with the developer. This is a great program to run on a networked computer with WIDE FS. Google Earth can be presented at any altitude you want and the Google Earth view angle can be changed. It's a lot of fund to watch your aircraft symbol fly over actual terrain, especially mountains. Sometimes I don't run it because I start looking at it more than the terrain in the flight sim. Works with FSX, Steam and all versions of P3. Thanks much to the developer Lennart Vedin.
  7. I'm just about to begin my first ever airliner flight on Vatsim, and one of my friends warned me that ATC may, at some point, give me a direct to order when on a SID; how would I tell the aircraft to miss a waypoint and head direct to? Any YT videos would be mightily appreciated! :wink: Thanks! Jake
  8. First off, even though I'm writing about my experience of the Carenado C208 Grand Caravan EX, I'm posting this here because I suspect it applies to all (payware?) aircraft using this form of the glass cockpit, not just Carenado's offering. (Feel free to move it if you think it only applies to the Carenado aircraft, or if it better belongs in some other forum.) I have my first payware GA aircraft with an implementation of the G1000, in this case combined with the GMC710 autopilot. In flying from one location to another, I'm able to put myself on a pre-created flightplan using NAV on the autopilot using GPS mode. I'm also able to use the PROC key to set up and activate an approach to the destination airport (in this case, a GPS approach, since the runway I'm using doesn't have ILS). The aircraft is flying that approach laterally just fine. Do I need to also invoke APR mode on the autopilot? If so, what is supposed to happen? I ask this because, in my experience, I get "LOC" annunciated in white on the PFD, but it never turns green (not surprising, since -- as I already pointed out -- there is no ILS on this runway). But the aircraft will generally, a couple of miles out on what I seem to have established as a glideslope based on the PAPI lights, suddenly start climbing steeply (no, ALT HOLD mode isn't on; it got switched off when APR was invoked, and, besides, I dialed the altitude down to field level as a precaution), occasionally stalling due to airspeed drop in the process, and I have no choice but to switch off the autopilot and wrestle the aircraft down to the ground in what has suddenly become a short-field landing more appropriate to bush flying. Does this mean that, when I'm doing a GPS (i.e. non-ILS) approach with the G1000/GMC710, I shouldn't invoke APR mode, and that the latter should only be done with ILS approaches? If that's the case, what is the proper procedure for carrying out a GPS approach with the G1000 combo? If, on the other hand, I should invoke APR mode on the GMC710, what is supposed to happen? Unfortunately, the Carenado documentation is basically just a "guide to all the buttons and menus" that doesn't given the big picture, and everything else I've searched on the web seems to leave out that information.
  9. Is it possible to make read Garmin trainer software (G1000 or GNS 430) navigation data from XP11 ? I don't want to buy stuff like RealityXP to make it fit into a cockpit, because I already have G1000 sim (from link above) installed on my laptop. thanks.
  10. EasyFMC, the successful universal FMC, is now available for Prepar3D v2. This add-on lets you plan your flight in a simple and easy way, using the simulator internal database (no need of a specific navigation database). It is fully compliant with the integrated GPS for route display and supports all the VOR, NDB, airports, intersections for route creation. Tested with Prepar3D v2.4 and 2.5.

  11. :smile: Hi All, When creating a flight plan (excluding sids and stars), should one always attempt to get onto the nearest airways, or doesn't that matter? Thanks in advance for your advice! Best, Lucky :smile: //////////////
