  1. Congratulations to the team. Looks excellent and much improved from the P3D version. Great to finally see the first payware higher fidelity aircraft for MSFS. Will be an instant buy for many. @The Dude Excellent tutorials, and all explained very well. Thanks for putting the videos together. I have no issue flying Boeings and Busses efficiently, but the CRJ has quite some uniqueness to it, kind of like a MD-11 that has hybrid characteristics so will be nice to be more proficient in flying this aircraft. Couple questions I havnt seen posted. If it is, my apologies. 1) Is there no wind page for descent? Since a fairly stiff nose on head wind, or direct tail wind, would change the TOD calculation and meeting any constraints. Or how can you account for this in manual calculation? 2) Your taxiing is so smooth, and wondering if you have nosewheel steering setup. I have tried using the 'set steering' in the controls on an axis but it does not work for any aircraft and always have to use the rudder which behaves weird on the ground except for maybe the GAs. Thank you
  2. It appears its a no go as theres been no comment from 2 weeks ago. Guess we have to switch to Navigraph to get it updated.
  3. Sorry to bring back this old topic. Even though the thread advises "This thread is quite old. Please consider starting a new thread rather than reviving this one." I decided against it to keep the history. Dont want to be nagging, but would like to know what is happening if anything with simbrief updating. I really dont understand why this is not supported when other countless addons are. If you run through the different threads of late, simbrief is mentioned quite a bit. I used to use PFPX but found updating to accurate aircraft profiles quite cumbersome. Simbrief is my goto flight planner yet the only way to update its AIRAC for some reason is thru Navigraph. As mentioned earlier, I have the full combo subscription of charts and navdata pro as im sure many others do, yet we are stuck in this predicament of non synced AIRAC data from the flight planner and current FMS data. Please push this thru to make it happen, otherwise a statement that says we will not pursue and support simbrief would be appreciated. Then I will have to make a switch when able. Ive sent a similar plea to simbrief for cooperation and support from Aerosoft. Seems like they are at odds for whatever reason.
  4. There is quite a few who use simbrief. Live streamers often use it. Many others who dont wish to use the complexity of PFPX. Its rather good, and gets the job done. When I want more comprehensive and detailed flightplan I will use PFPX, but for a shorter run I will use simbrief.
  5. Thats great to hear Mathijs. Would be nice to see some open dialogue happen to resolve this. Thank you!
  6. I just had a talk with Simbrief. According to him, it seems Aerosoft has not expressed any interest in Simbrief. Not even any discussions. On the flip side, Navigraph has been eager to always facilitate what is needed to support them. In this case a simple access code to unlock it. Seems to me that it would equate to a good number of potential customers for navdata pro deciding Navigraph instead for that reason. I can tell you for sure that if I had been a little more astute in checking what navdata pro supports or lack thereof, I would have definitly gone to Navigraph again. I use PFPX too, but simbrief is a nice alternative and its quicker. Whoever at AS makes these decisions, I hope its reconsidered.
  7. Navdatapro is the AIRAC data. Whats not to understand? I just mentioned that I got the whole package of AIRAC data and the charts bundle. Simbrief only supports Navigraph AIRAC updating.
  8. I just bought a years subscription of navdatapro and the charts and it seems I made a mistake because it doesnt support simbrief to my surprise and dismay. Previous threads ask the question and then suddenly locked to further replies with no answer. Is there any particular reason why simbrief is excluded from providing airac data?
