  1. I did not know what the italians did to their landscape. Honestly never been there, never looked at it. So when I wanted to go from Lake Garda to Venice I had to cross this region. I fly using landmarks only and Alt+Tab to Bing Maps in browser, no compass, no GPS. Works really well in 99% of the world, not in this mosaic of a landscape. Mental note: never go there in real life. https://imgur.com/2xNOO8o https://imgur.com/5IYSrUs
  2. Dedicated to all FSX enthusiasts in Steel City. A preview video of upcoming release of Pittsburgh VFR for FSX:
  3. 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?
  4. 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>
  5. 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?
  6. Hi, didn't find a hint here or elsewhere: as these sites state Thinkaviation.net , AOPA , swiss government one should close its VFR flight plan shortly before or immediately after landing, on my VFR travel yesterday's evening, I searched for the opportunity to do this. But - maybe I'm a blind dumbass - I didn't find any "close flightplan" or "cancel flightplan" request, neither while connected to center nor to ATC, also I couldn't find such a request in any other "Request" menu. The only request was to cancel flight following, then ATC told me to cancel flight following, radar advisory a.s.o. Could someone shed some light on this topic ? Is cancelling flight following or radar advisories the same as close a flight plan ?
