    I've been reading with interest the many threads on problems getting the 'bus to achieve the descent profile optimisation. I had this problem initially, and couldn't work out why - I think I have an idea of what was going wrong (at least for me). When I was a student pilot the FI used to make me do as much metal math as my poor brain could take - we used whizz wheels in those days, before apps on phones but the training was so important to press home the point that it is the PIC who makes the decisions not the computer. So a sudden instruction to make a diversion to the nearest airport required some simple arithmetic, which taught me to always be calculating what should happen, even if there was an automated system available. My approach to descent (if you'll pardon the pun) has always been to take the 3x the difference in altitude in FL (from cruise level to desired level) divided by 10, x3 +10nm in calculating the TOD. For example say you want to descend from FL300 to FL100, that is (200 /10) x3 +10nm or 20x3+10 =70nm. There are lots of subtle variations on this based on aircraft weight and winds aloft, but for our purposes, this seems a good guesstimate, and means I know what should happen, and can be vigilant if the TOD on the FMGS is incorrect. Given that many people have problems with the 'bus not responding to v profiles at least this gives the pilot a good idea of what should happen if you plan to follow a 3 degree descent path. Next check your flight plan and set up for a descent to the beginning of the approach. Why this - well you could set up a descent to the localiser intercept at the FAF, say 2500', but often you still have that disco in the flight plan because ATC may just assign you another runway. If you keep the disco in the flight plan the airbus will miscalculate the profile, and almost always descend too rapidly at first, then shallow out leaving you with the impossible task of being too high too fast at the start of the approach. So either take the disco out (OK you'll have to commit to the runway without ATC clearance), and select the FAF altitude, OR disregard the disco and set the altitude of the transition which should be before the disco in the flight plan. Either way the FMC now has all the information in need to set the correct descent path. Even so, go back to your mental maths and ask is the TOD where it should be, and if not, then command the descent in vs yourself. You will have to manage speed as well, and there is a whole lot of options with the airbus here. However, remember that when you reach FL100 you will need to decelerate to 250kts, so allow for this by allowing the speed to increase in the descent to FL250, shortening the distance over the ground, and then lifting the nose to achieve the target speed of 250kt at FL100 with enough distance to achieve the descent to the FAF without overspeeding. That's why we add 10nm to the arithmetic. In reality you may need to let the speed increase below FL250, up to the last 10nm or so before FL100 in order to achieve the descent, as the Airbus has low drag at low speed. It may be from what I read that SP1 will tighten the optimisation within the FMGS so that this is automated, but until then, as a good pilot we will want to be in front of the plane, and there is really no excuse to be using the lever of shame, unless ATC give you a profile the aircraft is unable to achieve without - (yes it does happen!). For me this is part of the fun of flying this aircraft - even if the FMGS needs a little tweak by the devs, its up to us to fly safely meanwhile!!

    I'd happily pay for PBR updates on older aircraft as I know there is lots of work involved in updating the textures and making them look just right and last I checked most people like to get paid to work ... hopefully I'm not alone in wanting to support P3D V4.4 development efforts with my wallet, I suspect there are many other customers willing to pay for PBR updates. Big thank you for taking PBR into consideration for your new product releases also ... very much appreciated. Cheers, Rob.

    Of course, you would like that free of charge, but it is at least 2 months of work and that has to be paid somehow. At this moment our plans are to make sure to have all new products using all options and then see if we can work backward.

    Mr. Kok, Saying it is 'better' is , IMHO, a gross understatement. Using a 4k monitor at 30Hz and I cannot believe the difference. Great planning on your part and the team. Bring on the 330!!! Thank you. Jack

    Actually, there is no "freedom which I am entitled by law" on this commercial site owned by Aerosoft. The site is for support of products sold or developed by Aerosoft and is not a public venue for your private opinions in this matter. Edit: Emi, I see you helped him through his misconception before I finished my post.

    Kiesel, freedom of speech does not apply to privat company forums like ours. This forum is part of our marketing and while everyone is welcome to post here everyone will have to respect our rules in here. Your lawyer will (for quite a fee) tell you the same.

    This livery has been designed with the utmost attention to detail and all decals have been placed as accurately as possible. Some of you may notice that the luminous tips on the wing have not been added to this aircraft, this is due to Aerosoft's paint kit mirroring them onto the other wing. On this specific model the luminous tips only exist on the right wing, if this is a feature you can't live without please let me know and I will push an update. I’ve painted on light traces of weathering and dirt especially towards the belly and tail area as SWISS generally keep their aircraft in good shape. Also, do be aware that these textures have been created using a heavily modified version of Aerosoft's 2K paintkit, meaning that this texture is over 100MB larger compared to other repaints when decompressed as It's in 4K. Thank you to @John Glanville for his assistance in creating this livery and his alpha layers. *for the Aerosoft A319 Professional for Prepar3D v4.3 - Not compatible with previous versions of Prepar3D or FSX *This is not a representation of what your aircraft model will most likely look like in your sim with this livery, I am using my own unique TomatoShade preset and reflection profile.

    This OFP template is basically the standard one, but with edits to suit my personal preferences. I thought I'd share it for those who want the same information but didn't want to edit files. The default PFPX template is good but there was 2 things I didn't like doing: 1. Calculating the baggage weight for the Majestic Q400 load manager; and 2. Having to use Active Sky to get some data required for Boeing FMC PERF INIT entry. I think the OFP should be the single source of truth from our fictional dispatch and didn't like that information missing. How to install: 1. Copy PFPX+.txt into the folder C:\Users\Public\Documents\PFPX Data\FlightplanTemplates\ 2. Select PFPX+ from the OFP dropdown list next time you create an OFP. It will remember your selection. Changes in this from the default PFPX OFP Template: -Added baggage to weights section for aircraft that need this in load manager (like the Majestic Q400) -Removed config from weights section (to fit baggage as most templates only have 1 config). -Wind component and temps now placed at bottom of OFP near the Climb, Descent, Cruise wind/temp information so that all wind is in the one place. Ensure you are ticking "wind information" when selecting the OFP from the dropdown or you won't get the climb/descent winds. -Added average wind direction and velocity (for Boeing CDU Perf Init page) -Added TOC OAT (for Boeing CDU Perf Init page). -Added average OAT. Note: ISA DEV is not added because the FMC calculates TOC ISA DEV from the TOC Temp. Note: Departure and Destination surface weather/winds are not included as they are already in the METAR output.
