  1. true. I like to sit in brandnew cockpits. I had the pleasure quite often with Easyjet during my time in Gatwick. But in these you still find dirt in every place. Pilots can't leave their workroom tidy
  2. Speaking for myself: I like failures alot. But that more because its my usual work. seeing a fault, relating to it and having in mind what my point of introduction to troubleshooting would be. for that its very important to have an accurate model and a 100% accurate simulation of the systems. Unfortunatley I have not seen this in any sim so far. And when Developers try to promise 100% -failure system adaption I cannot smile anymore because its bugs me even more as a "specialist". Even not with the very beautiful Service Based Failures by PMDG. If I would replace HPSOV's and other Bleed related components as often THEY say I would need to solely work on the engines. And believe me: it's not that fun under the head-bumping little (and still often hot) cowls. (Bet Engines are the places where I hurt my self most often. Thank god im doing Widebodies mostly!) But I dont even think this is bad to NOT having this. A good immersion and accurate flight model (and besides Stefan's new cockpit looks amazing in-sim) is in my eyes more important. AS has a very reasonable and especially fair pricing model and delivers one of the best models out there. And we the testers, the devs and EVEN MATHIJS! try to bring you a very good product for a very good price. AND: with every new release, now with a big new development on 64-bit, the Scarebus gets better and better "Gut Ding will Weile haben!" LG Wackenopfer
  3. Köln/Bonn airport preview

    Its officially Köln/Bonn Airport. @Mathijs Kok Glad to help. I work there everyday
  4. I love how everybody starts mocking Frank. But in our group they also say I'm breaking his aircraft IRL
  5. Best point would be to take the base PN and search within system description of the CMM autocorrects can be ignored
  6. Be careful with motors or generally components of aircraft. Part numbers change more often than most people tend to change their underwear! Limits are shortened and extended whenever the possibility is given via SBs ADs and ISIs ( service bulletins, airworthiness directives and in service informations. Right now we have replaced several resolvers of Airbus side sticks which have been affected. And that's a lot of work. autocorrects can be ignored
  7. Hello together, I keep having Crashes under P3Dv4 since I installed 29 Palms Samos. Sorted out that the scenery.dll is responsible as faulty module. When I de-install Samos everything works fine again. Everything is updated so far. Eventlog shows: Specs: i7-4790 GTX1060 6GB 8GB RAM P3Dv4 Installed Addons: PMDG 747v3 FTX Global FTX EuropeLC Malpensa X FlyTampa Dubai Flytampa Corfu
  8. you're correct in what you say but in some instances companies use the aircraft following maintenance inputs such as A checks etc to re-certify the aircraft as ETOPS To gain ETOPS certified there is no a-check needed. Simply a ETOPS verification flight and a previous ETOPS pre departure service check every second turn around (means at home base)by a certified ETOPS engineer. For working on twin engine aircraft which are basically allowed to perform ETOPS this qualification is mandatory for every engineer. Additionally the engineer must own basic and customer ETOPS trading on the applicable type. It must not inherit current ETOPS as we are allowed to reject ETOPS anytime. A checks are like on every type due acc. MPD and have nothing to do with ETOPS status. autocorrects can be ignored
  9. Hi twix! Surprisingly in the a320 Family on both engines you barely feel a N1 increase. You could say that Its unnoticeable. In the trent 700 Its nearly the same because the Engine produces more bleed than it actually needs. The cf6 and pw4000 turn into real high performer and increasing the Power really much when turning in the WAI and EAI. Greets Wackenopfer autocorrects can be ignored
  10. Keep calm. Has anybody said, that the sound is not modelled or similar? Stefan is a professional. His Job is to model the aircraft, Not the sound or performance. Here are many people involved as modelling, writing Code which you can already See in the 320 RE. And all the pilots with flight Data and handling Input und ground Personal such as ground Crew and maintenance personal. In what extent the door ist modelled is mainly in Stefans Hand. And i guess every future customer and every from the development Crew wants a perfect model besides a adequate flight model. You are after all Not forced to buy the Product if the APU sound is a reason to buy the craft. Yours and open for Diskussion Wackenopfer
  11. Inside the flight deck the APU is not audible with flight deck door and door 1 closed. But the APU cleaning howl is. Be aware that the APU in the -300 is roughly 75m behind and few meters above you
  12. Hi! the ACMS Reports are totally optionable. For example EW A332 prints a long as hell vibration report on landing. The ACMS Reports deliver a variety of reports in many kinds but are not very interesting. (and me as a technician says this...) They are only a total waste of printer paper. <----- ATTENTION: OPINION!
  13. And additionally the A330-300 does not have a center tank. You "only" can carry ca. 70to of fuel with you.
  14. As a guy who works on 737/320/330 everyday. From the outside you can be happy to see a Pax' head tingeling around. But thats the most you'll get. Especially on the A330. From the outside you have too many reflections as the windows structure already consists of 3 panes. So at least >> I << dont care if we do not have a cabin if i get more FPS and just now we are on a very good way with Stefans model in regards to the current status. Greets from HAM
