  1. Hello, I tried to use the "search" function to see if anyone had reported about this already. I know this is not a bug but more of a feature as it's just a result of how Aerosoft has built to CFD. So, if for any reason the connection is lost between the two parties sharing the cockpit it will state "connection error" on the CFD menu and there is no way to bring back the connection so basically the shared cockpit flight is then lost. The reason why I am reporting this is because I would like to Aerosoft know about this and reconsider a possibility to restore the connection after a lost connection if not on the A320 series but on the upcoming A330 which will have CFD introduced as well. On A320 it doesn't become a too big problem as you mainly flew medium to short legs but on A330 where you fly pretty much always long haul the possibility of losing the connection on some point of the flight increases. And the last thing you want to see if a lost connection that is not recoverable after 7-8 hours of flying. So please aerosoft try to make the CFD at least on the A330 (I would not mind it on A320 either) like so you are able to reset the connection without reloading the aircraft. Now it's just a bit dull that you have just one shot to try the connection and if it gives you the error you have to start all over again. If this post doesn't belong here but rather on the A330 preview thread, a moderator can move it there. Best regards, Nicrative
  2. Hello Stephen, thanks for the advice. Did not know that. However I think it doesn't solve the main issue here as I am sure that not everyone who flies off from Helsinki on vatsim/ivao will manually edit the airport via the editor. Would it be possible for PFPX to include a edited profile or whatever it's called on the next PFPX update or something, so it would change the system to correct one for everyone then without manual inputs. That would be excellent.
  3. Hello, I am I1 rated VATSIM controller in Finland and the FIR director of Finland. I have noticed a common mistake that happens with traffic generating their routes with PFPX. The routing out from Helsinki is ALWAYS generated wrong when it comes to automatic generating. The SID system in Helsinki is a bit different from the one we see mostly around the world. In Helsinki each SID is named completely different to prevent misunderstanding (or so does the Finnish traffic authority state out). Therefore the SIDs wont take the aircraft straight to their first waypoint. Instead they fly the SID and when the SID ends they are supposed to make a direct to the first waypoint of the flightplan. Therefore it's vital for the aircraft to file their flightplan via a correct TMA exit points which are stated on AIP Finland. Currently when you auto generate a route with PFPX it pretty much always gives out EVIRO as the first waypoint which is inside the TMA and therefore not a valid TMA exit. It would be very nice to get this issue fixed. If PFPX would automatically generate a correct routing out from Helsinki there would be no need to amend the flight plan by VATSIM controller. The controller software recognizes the first waypoint and issues a corresponding SID for the flight. If the first waypoint is EVIRO it will not issue a SID at all and the flightplan has to be changed accordingly to get it right and realistic. Here is a chart where you can see which SID leads to which TMA exit. And also some additional information included. It would be great to have PFPX planning routes via the waypoints presented on the left column. That way it would give realistic CMFU valid routes out from Helsinki. I will point out here once more. No IRL flight ever has planned their route via EVIRO, and if they have, the Finnish authority would have rejected the flight plan anyways because of incorrect routing. Best regards, Nicrative
  4. Waiting for some news here as well.
  5. I think you can not load a flight plan in the FMC because it does only sync the inputs made there. So when you load a flightplan it get the departure and arrival inputs but since the other pilot doesn't have that plan in his system his FMCU is clueless about the route. So it has to be done manually by checking each input you make. Also it seems like you have to restart the sim each time you want to switch between the master and slave. Aerosoft may have a better answer for that but that's my experience. (Explained on the taxi section of my post. Basically the same but there the situation is that the connection between master and slave is to be switched before takeoff) And I am still looking for an answer from you Aerosoft about these issues. Hopefully you won't just wipe them under the carpet. I expect at least somekind of customer support on the support forums for a paid product. Thanks.
  6. Any info?
  7. I do have the both hotfixes installed on both A318/319 & A320/321. So it's not about that. As far as I know BlueFinn had them for A319 which we flew first but didn't have for A321 which we flew second. Same mistakes occured on both flights (but the A321 flight didn't have the FMCU all messed up)
  8. Hello, I know you've been working hard on this CFD thing and I also know that this is just a test for the CFD anyways until the A330 comes out. Anyways, I would like to point these things out just so you know what there is wrong and could be maybe fixed. And also something you could look into while going forward with the A330 project. And of course it would be really nice to have these fixed for the airbus A320 as well as soon as possible. I know it's not your priority but still. Of course the CFD is already flyable but it's still a bit annoying when you have to double check these few things with extreme care to get them synced. Pre-Departure flows: -RCDR GND CTL - Not synced -Probe heat - Not synced -Nav light - not synced -Been there since release of Airbus X: ALIGN IRS - Starts aligning before ALIGN IRS is selected from FMCU. So whenever you set the three ADIRS buttons to nav it starts aligning. But IRL it starts aligning when you set ALIGN IRS on FMC. Pushback & taxi -Parking brakes - not synced properly (sometimes you have to switch on/off several times to get it on same position) -When first officer acts as PF for the leg, on almost every airline the captain still handles the taxiing as that's one of the most difficult parts of the whole flight. So would be nice to be able to taxi as captain somehow even though the First officer is the master. So some kind of sidestick priority function where you could choose who handles the flight controls by just one click. In-Flight Sometimes the slave pilot loses part of the route and whole FMCU gets unsynced. It's really hard to get the flight plan back there correctly as where-ever you click it may function differently on the other FMCU. But this can be prevented by double checking every move other makes on the FMCU and doing it slowly. Landing Autobrakes not working at all Reverses not showing for slave So there are my observations. Hopefully you can do at least something for some of those things. Best regards, Nicrative
  9. I'm sorry to let you guys down who have been waiting the EasyJet unicef livery. I have been extremely busy with my life lately. So haven't had time for simming that much. :/
  10. Thanks Faust. And yes, that scenery is excellent freeware! DetCord, livery should be now compatible with livery manager as well. I haven't been using that myself that much because the "old fashioned" way is not too hard either. But for those who like to use the livery manager, you're welcome.
  11. If no-one else is already making this I can accept the challenge. I think one reg is enough for you as aircraft in other ways seems to share the same livery. Although I'll be busy the rest of the week so I'll be able to start this livery next week earliest. If anyone else is able to make it faster, or someone is already making it, please let me know
  12. Atlantic Airways livery is now ready for download. Enjoy guys! Download link: Nicrative
  13. Version 1.01
