    LNAV STAR issue

    Hi everybody, I am experiencing LNAV issue since a few days. I was using a Flightsim yoke with autocoordination ON and read that the PMDG 777 was not designed to be flown with autocoordination ON so I decided to switch to a joystick with rudder controlled by rotating the stick. I have to say that I rediscover my 777 and enjoy it a lot. But I also experience an over-anticipation of LNAV turns when following STARs. For example, I recently flew from KJFK to SBGR and followed the ANSUG1B arrival for ILS09R. At some point, the STAR commands you to turn right almost 90° to downwind track. 5 NM before the turn, the plane starts turning and very soon I find myself way inside the turn by more than 1 NM. The plane levels off, turn left to join the magenta line, then turn right again and overshoots the flightpath. (Am I clear? Hope so... ). I must precise that: - I have the latest version installed - this problem happened AFTER I changed my flight controller. - I have FSUIPC not registered Thank you for any insight! Cheers, Alex

    FMC freeze

    Hello all, Currently flying LFMN-LICJ on the NG. Standard route, SODRI6A dep and GIANO2B arr with VOR-Z 07 approach. There is a discontinuity in the missed approach route (Navigraph AIRAC 1605). I canceled it and was on my way to Sicily. During cruise the FMC froze and I was unable to modify the route (directs). Apparently, what happened was that canceling that discontinuity made the FMC freeze. To unfreeze it, I simply uploaded my route again and made sure to not touch the missed app segment. Thats it! I don't know if it is a Navigraph bug or a NGX bug, but thought it would be useful to report it here. Mods, please feel free to delete if already discussed. Happy flying, Alex
  4. Greetings, When I updated the Navgraph data for Carenado (all products), the runway, SID, and STAR data for many airports are not showing anymore on the FMC DEP/ARR page. Any ideas why? Thank you for the help in advance. Faisal.
  5. 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.

    "Program PIN error" on CDU?

    Yesterday I was doing approaches and practicing go-around maneuvers at ESSA, I repeatedly set up my approach on rwy 01L and repeatedly (maybe 3 times) also re-entered the ILS approach on the CDU "app" page. Then the CDU gave a "program pin error" and I could no more enter any approaches on the fmc/cdu. The simulator did not crash and I landed normally but I could no longer enter any stars and approaches on the computer. If I tried it gave me a blank screen with only "FMC ACT" on it. Has this happened to you guys? I purchased my PMDG 737NGX in 2012 so I should have automatically all the updates sp:s etc? Thanks!
  7. hello to all i don t like complain but here twice flight and twice problem during arrival this morning, arrival at eham from west, pass over spl for an arrival R36C, just before spl plane turn right and follow a south path, not programmed path into the fmc, i had to correct the heading via hdg mode until i was align with LOC arrival this afternoon, another flight and another arrival problem at moscou, i had programm the arrival into the fmc, the plane follow it until it lost the path, need to correct by hdg mode, and finish on manual mode for landing So the Vnav mode seems to have a problem with approach in my case, i don't have any problem with 737 or 777 just with the 747, maybe someone can help me?

    ATC cut short STAR

    I was trying a short flight from EGFF to EGLC. The screenshot shows the assigned STAR (in blue). Everything was fine until I reached the BIG VOR when ATC directed me to heading 045 and descend to 6000ft for ILS on rwy 27 (this is the yellow line). At BIG I was 16000ft and couldn't descend in time to land. Why did the ATC cut the STAR like this? Can I stop it happening again?
  9. Hello everybody I started this tread to be able to follow any question/suggestion/issue you have with the tool I've developed. The tools is called SIDSTAR Converter. It will convert all the files you want in PMDG format using a special version of AiConv.exe (thanks Roland!!) It has a friendly and straight forward user interface. And it will create a folder structure with the names of countries and states with all the converted files inside. It will also create a txt file with the lines that you should copy to the AISIDSTAR.ini to be ready for use. Please, read the readme that explains everything in a more detailed way. Here is the link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/pp354gzq35c68fx/SIDSTAR%20Converter.rar Regards,
  10. This is the checklist that I created for the Airbus A320. This is a free file, do not sell it to anyone. I created it to help anyone that wants it. Contact me if you wish for me to create the same one but with another airline logo, or if I have made a mistake. Download it here:
  11. I flew the SEEVR1 RNAV Arrival into KDFW tonight with no traffic anywhere to justify the speed restrictions on the arrival. I did still want to comply with the altitude restrictions. But... I couldn't figure out how to either A) Delete just the speed restriction on the pre-populated VNAC restrictions. B) Enter altitude restrictions as between two altitudes - or - What is the correct way to do either of these? E.g. FEWWW.SEEVR1 has a restriction at NECKK to cross Below FL280 and Above FL240 at 290KIAS. In the FMC legs page this was represented as 290/240 280. http://flightaware.com/resources/airport/KDFW/STAR/SEEVR+ONE+%28RNAV%29 As a work around, I created an along track waypoint a tenth of a mile before NECKK and assigned it altitude "280B" and then assigned NECKK 240A, with no speed on either one. It was a good amount of button pushing for what I think should be pretty straight forward.
  12. Hi. Is there an option to create flight plans with an external program (FScommander etc.) and save them in what ever format MFD GPS needs, so they can then be loaded from the GPS. Were are the flight plans saved and in what format? Also is there going to be SID STAR updates coming? gps autopilot? Thanks BJR
  13. Hi, still learning the FMC.. I have Navigraph and PFPX. If I plan a route, I add the SID and STAR for the the runways in the FMC. However, I have no idea which one to choose for my particular route. I know that if you pick an runway, it shows the appropriate, possible SIDS and STARS, still a lot to choose from.... I try to find these somewhere in programs and documentation, but no luck until now. I pick one that seems kinda ok, stepping through the legs, sometimes end up with spaghetti Where/how can I find the options available in the FMC on charts? (Would save me some fuel too ;-) ) thanks, Tony
  14. Diving really deep into the PMDG 777 simulation. Flew a VATSIM flight from ORD to EGLL today and the controller as me to change the STAR. Easy enough, however is there a procedure that will assist in cleaning up the previous start and still using the same transition fix? Thank you.

    Photoreal Night Project

    Hi! feel free to try : https://www.dropbox.com/s/akwkuuvv59f2cx4/photoreal_night_project_p3d.rar?dl=0 I created night sky textures and a milkyway texture based on real life pictures.
  17. I have looked through several forums where some guys have the same question, but have not found an answer yet. Let’s assume the following scenario: I am at a X airportand have programed my flight. I used a saved company route that already includes SID, route, STAR and approach runway at my destination. (I use vroute to generate my flight plans, and of course I’ll have SID, route, STAR and approach already pre-programmed since it saves a lot of time during preflight of the B737 NGX). I have taken of, climbed and I am en route to my destination. Everything is fine. Before descent or during descent I either get instructions from ATC (for example on VATSIM) to change my STAR and approach runway, or if not on-line I decide based on ATIS at the arrival airport to change my STAR and approach runway. Now comes my question / worry: - How can I change the STAR and the approach in the CDU, if I have another, active one in it? - I have tried lots of things, but the active STAR and approach cannot be erased, and a new STAR and approach put into the CDU. I know that in real world flying pilots will not input the approach runway (maybe even the STAR) into the CDU at the departure airport due to unknown circumstances at the destination airport (traffic, wind changes and so on). But we FS pilots might do it as per point 1. above. I am a SE / ME – IFR rated pilot, but I don’t fly anything bigger than a SENECA V, which of course does not have a FMC. I would appreciate if anyone could let me know how to do the task in question 4. Thank you and have a great weekend. Andy Andreas Ziegler Niederuzwil, Switzerland
