    PITTSBURGH VFR

    Dedicated to all FSX enthusiasts in Steel City. A preview video of upcoming release of Pittsburgh VFR for FSX:
  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. Recent Photos of a VFR flight from KMTH-KTMH with A2A simulations piper Cherokee Enjoy the shots gentlemen. http://www.vataware....flight/13548817
  4. 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?
  5. I trying to add custom waypoint to FSX/P3D database so we can use in the default GPS and also been able to create a flight plan with them. I have to use the vor because in Italy the vfr point name are much more longer then 5 character and I still have the problem with the ident in 5 character. I am wondering, if it is possible to create custom waypoint with other method but been able to create flightplan. Is it possible to change color of the vor icon or other navaid in the night version as the blu is not so clear on the map. Is the map inside of the gps a bitmap in the gauges or is coming from the 3d mesh of fsx? Thank' s for any input <Vor dme="TRUE" dmeOnly="TRUE" lat="45.7200001180172" lon="7.27000012993813" alt="1.0M" type="HIGH" frequency="108.000" range="12345.0M" magvar="0" region="LI" ident="MWW1" name="AOSTA WEST"> <!-- VFR reporting point --> <Dme lat="0" lon="0" alt="0.0M" range="12345.0M"/> </Vor>

    My First Forays Into IFR

    Greetings, This is not meant to be instructive, by any measure. Instead, I hope to convey some of the ... ahem... pleasure I encountered from a guy that normally flies GA VFR attempting to fly GA IFR. A succinct summary would be: Please expedite your climb.. Please expedite your descent... Hand off to Norcal/Oakland/Auckland/Tralfamador Hand off to Tralfamador/Auckland/Oakland/Norcal Please expedite... And my favorite, after I ignored a go-around (I was tired), "Did you hear my last transmission..." I could have sworn the guy got testy with me... What a nag!!! This is all with the bog-standard ATC in P3Dv3. I may have made an unfortunate choice in aircraft/scenario, in that My first attempt was from Christchurch to Auckland in a Phenom 300. I thought the AI traffic program (free from Orbx) would add to the immersion - it added, alright, but may have been too much of a good thing. I was listening to ATC talk with other aircraft, but I was 14 minutes out at FL310 and nobody was telling me to descend. Is this normal? I manually descended by asking for lower flight levels, and actually successfully landed in Auckland without killing anybody despite a 3,000 fpm descent. Whew! My second attempt was with the Flysimware Lear 35 (a great fun airplane, by the way - a total hot-rod) from San Jose to Portland. Jeezus. I was conservative, I was cautious, but still failed. After the fourth hand-off and climb instruction (is this normal?) I pulled the chute somewhere over the Bay. Maybe I should have tried IFR with the Turbine Duke or a slower aircraft? Certainly, the Learjet can get away from you quickly, and the added AI traffic from the Orbx OZ package can complicate things. The T-Duke is slower, but still can ... expedite ... climbs and descents. IFR flying feels like somebody is beating me with a ball peen hammer compared to VFR. The enjoyment of a leisurely turn to starboard at 1,500 fpm is gone. Instead, I have a Task Master who wants me to expedite. I do love the lady's voices, though. Is this normal?
  7. Hello. I'm looking for a combined ATC and Traffic program for FSX. I fly mostly general aviation aircraft, vfr at the moment; but want something that can grow as my skills and hangar grow. I am looking for non-voice controlled ATC that is semi realistic and traffic that enters and follows patterns. I always fly out of KLND, a small town airport, and with FSX traffic all the way up I think I remember seeing one plane come in and land. I cannot seem to find a direction I want to pursue through my own research and would appreciate any input. Thank you.

    Vfr fs9 problems

    Hi all I'm wondering if I am missing here. If I tune nav 1 to (I have checked 10) random airports in the uk for example eggd, Bristol 110.15 I get the morse code and the CDI moves correctly however when turning the OBS to centre the CDI, it won't centre I can move OBS 360degrees and the CDI remains as it were. If I visually fly to the approach eventually the CDI will centre correctly on its own and glide me down perfectly. If I fly anywhere in the USA all is perfect I can move the OBS to centre the CDI no problems. As I have said am I missing something? Is there a bug in fs9 Any help/pointers would be much appreciated Cheers Stuart

  10. Thanks to Tonywob, VFR flying in the UK has had a huge boost in immersion through a download which shows every building in its right place. Mesh from AlpilotX, weather from the new NOAA plugin, and plane by Vflyte.
