    Is it just me or have the "Club" forums been removed?

    Electronic Flight Bag (EFB)

    I've used the trial of EFB and I have to say, I really liked it. However, it's quite pricey. I'd love to buy it, but there's always something more important that needs to be bought . I've never seen it go on sale either, which is a pity, because if it did, that would sway me into buying it. Although maybe I'm better off waiting for version 2 at this stage.
  3. I believe it depends on what part of the world you are flying in. From what I have read in the past, in the US, flight crews are required to enter their most likely approach before departure. If conditions change mid-flight, then they will amend the approach. In Europe most flight crews wait until later in the flight to enter the approach info. Probably somewhere in the cruise phase, or early descent when the workload is low. Like I said, I'm not sure if this is the case. It may be the other way around, and also it may depend on company SOPs.
  4. Once you have programmed your approach into the MCDU, the correct ILS frequency should be automatically set for you.
  5. Hi Jon, I'm not seeing a profile for the DC-10 on your site. Are you sure you uploaded it?

    Final leg, to London Gatwick. I'm sure Rupert will be pleased. Pushing back from gate 107 at Dublin Taxiing out to runway 28 Take off to the west Making a left turn at 3,000 feet At our cruise altitude of 33,000 feet along the north coast of wales Beginning our descent, just passing Birmingham Turning onto our downwind leg at 3,000 feet Fully configured for runway 08R at Gatwick Landing ....and parked up for the last time. No idea what gate number we're at but it doesn't matter. We've finally completed the trip. Really enjoyed taking part in this tour. Unfortunately a lot of personal issues got in the way and I wasn't able to stick to the schedule, but very enjoyable all the same. A big thank you to Mathijs for organising it.

    Navigation Display

    The knob for the ND has 2 parts to it. one for adjusting the brightness of the main ND display, and one for adjusting the brightness of the weather/terrain radar, (I can't remember which is which off-hand). Are you sure you are adjusting the correct knob?

    Just (a big) suggestion

    Well considering P3Dv4.2 already has all of the above features you mentioned (plus a lot more), I think it would be catastrophic move for anyone to take over that project. FSW was always doomed to fail. It was bad all round management on their part, coupled with the fact they had a lot of competition. I feel sorry for the guys that worked for them, particularly Chris and Aimee who used to deal with support issues on the Avsim forums, because they genuinely seemed like good people, very helpful to their customers, and very passionate about their job.

    On our second last leg now, off to my local airport, Dublin. Ready to push back from gate 5 Take off from runway 19 Cruising along the south coast of Iceland at 23,000 feet. This is the altitude PFPX assigned me. Is this not very low for a 2 hour 30 minute flight? Just starting our descent as we pass over Belfast International Airport Lined up on final for runway 28 at Dublin Landing Back home for Ryanair. Parked at gate 107. Would have liked to have had my Aer Lingus A320 back for this leg but hopefully it will be released soon. Also would like to have had Mega Airport Dublin upgraded. Ah well. 1 more leg to go and we'll be back at London Gatwick.

    I'm currently in Iceland, with 2 more legs to fly. But the burning question is, why do you care Rupert? I'm not holding up proceedings. The event actually IS officially finished. It's finished for you, and anyone else that has completed it. I'm well aware of that. I'm also well aware that I missed the deadline. I'm not looking to lay claim to any prizes. I'm just continuing it on. We are not "still hanging out". No one is forcing you to post here. This is 2 or 3 times you've made such comments. Is it an insecurity thing with you? Do you somehow feel threatened that late-comers will bask in the same glory as the people who finished on time?
  12. I'm open to correction on this Tom, but I was under the impression that FSiPanel isn't compatible with P3Dv4? I was thinking of buying this product in the past, but it seems that it's only compatible with versions of P3D up to version 3.x.

    Malaga Pro - floating UTLive aircraft at gates?

    To be fair, it's Ryanair. And yhey always think they're above everyone else

    Airbus Cockpit Instruments

    The current Airbus doesn't have pop out panels. However I'm pretty sure I read that the new version currently in development WILL have pop out panels. I'm not sure if it will be compatible with P3Dv3 though.

    Front Wheel Issue

    Do you use EzDok? If so, you need to update it to the latest version.
