Because some people might not like it and would rather turn it off. I'm sorry, but to me this looks rather silly and does not look real whatsoever. 

 

Ofcourse it will be an option. ;)

 

I am still waiting for Mathijs to implement my flightkit, which you can see in the EFB thread, to be present during the take off roll.

I once met a pilot who has reading a huge book on his tray table. First I thought it was a manual. But he said he was doing a law study next to his job :)

In the best case they already read the manuals during the Type Rating and know their stuff when they take place in the flight deck with passengers on board the first time. ;)

 

Unless they have a Simcheck coming up in the next two weeks that is.

So, how about printed checklist to all bus family? I know there was topic about, maybe it's good time to make it real? It would be nice to have laminated checklist specified to every bus. Specially cause there is no real equal to sim - IMO.

Hello,

If i am wrong someone can tell me. I believe Bus testers already using Aerosoft Airbus A330. If it's right, Ecam, Nd and Pfd screens are clickable? Like when you click on them are they zooming? And If documentation .pfd files are ready please share with all of us so we may get ready until you guys release the bus... Ohh and we been waiting enough... So let it go :) Thanks.

the alpha phase hasn't begun really so the only thing that was tested was the A318 RE which has the same software as the A330 just to test on different system configurations.

Will this be manually initialized climb change of set alt on the FCP or will it be PMDG 777 type of Full auto step climb?  It was asked a couple of times in November but I don't think there was any definitive answer to it?

I also want to say thanks for your update and Stefan's update. :D

 

@sk5645 You could always try this if the pills doesn't work. :banghead1_s:;)

No, the RW airbus does not have this feature. Although we see the practical use of it, it is not planned. 

 

Ps, you could ofcouse make constraints and use the CLB mode for that...

Will there be an option to change the default Thrust red/Accel and Engine out Alts?

Hello Aerosoft Team,

Two ideas Regarding the impressive feature list of the MCDU if they are not already included:

- "derated climb" option (D1 D2)

- "pilots routes" page  to check longer routes more quickly.

 

Thanks for setting up a nice plane like this.

 

David
