Stanner added a topic in Aircraft GeneralCaptain Sim 767 forum Wants Order Number ?I purchased the 767 captain sim from Aerosoft recently. I am having problem keeping the aircraft stable,
so I tried to register in the Captain Sim forum. However, I am requested to enter my order number.
I tried entering the "installation" code that came with the product from Aerosoft. This did not work.
Can you give me an order number please, so I can register?

Stanner added a topic in Aircraft GeneralManual Flight PlanI am familiar with creating a flight plan by using software such as FS Build or FS Commander and FSX flight planner. I know how to enter these plans into the MCDU.
However, I tried to create a plan manually in the MCDU. I find I can enter way points, vors etc. BUT I am unable to enter the departure or destination airport.
How does one enter the departure and destination airport?

Stanner added a topic in Aircraft GeneralNavigational Display (ND) Runway Fix?Gentlemen.
In the Boeing PMDG products one can make a visual line on the Navigational Display (ND) of the destination runway. This is done using the FMC
"FIX" button. This visual line of the destination runway in the ND is of tremendous help in aligning the aircraft with the runway. The Airbus X
has the LS button, but this acts more like an NDB arrow in that it does not give visual display of the actual runway.
Is there a way to have the destination runway appear on the ND other than by a dot ? Approaching the dot it is difficult to gauge the exact angle of
the runway versus the aircraft.
If the answer is no, then can someone give me a tip on how to align the aircraft as it approaches the destination airport?
PS I find all other aspects of this Airbus to be excellent, even the manula handling is fine once you shut off the IFC switches in the top left of the

I downloaded the patch V1.22. I have AirbusX V1.21.(CD version). Whenever I try to install the update V1.22 I get an error message;
" Use DLL failed "
Can anyone tell me what this means? I have tried twice, being very careful to make certain my registration key number was correct.
I have the CD version.

Stanner added a topic in Aircraft GeneralAirbus X Flying in Manual ModeGentlemen,
I have version 1.2.1 of Airbus X. I was having very difficult problems trying to fly the aircraft in the manual mode after switching off the autopilot.
In my virtual airline forum (FlyUK), someone told me to SHUT OFF the FLT CTL swithes in the Overhead Panel (top left). I turned off ELAC 1, SEC 1, and FAC 1.
The aircraft was not difficult to trim or fly in the manual mode. I landed without any problems. No floating, jerking up or down. It handled very well.
My understanding is that the SEC 1 represents SPOILER + ELEVATOR COMPUTER. I have no idea why shutting down the FLT CTL switches has this impact, but it works!

Stanner added a topic in Aircraft GeneralAirbus XIn backing from the gate I find that the Airbus X will only go straight back (Shift + E).
It does not respond to Shift + E +1 for a left turn, or Shift + E + 2 for a right turn.
Is there another command to back up the AirbusX? Or does it only back up straight?

Stanner added a topic in Aircraft GeneralAirbusxI find it exceedingly difficult locate the ariport and then to properly align the aircraft with the desired runway. I have read Vol 6 of the manual and some of the postings
on this forum. I find conflicting instructions. Aerosoft says to just use the APPR and then AP2 when intercepting the localizer glidescope. Others say to first enable LOC.
If I installed the defautl FSX Garmin GPS it would facilitate locating the airport and aligning the aircraft with the desired runway.
I tried installing the GPS in the A320 CFM Panel cfg. Since the aircraft has no 2D cockpit, I installed it as "[Vcockpit2] followed by the standard
However, I cannot find the GPS listed when I click on View, Instrument Panel.
Has anyone installed the default Garmin GPS? If yes, can you provide details.
I realize this is not in keeping with a pure Airbus, but under the circumstances it is a small solution to what seems to many a difficult problem.
PS I have version 1.2 installed from a CD. It seems that there are still bugs. One major bug noted is the way the aircraft bolts around when the autopilot
