  1. Yes, but built slowly over time. While lurking... 😎
  2. I’m thinking KDCA-KBOS - a route I’ve flown a few times as pax on Jet Blue Embraers. Not too long, but long enough for a little downtime during cruise. Trip two will be the reverse - I want to wind up at home. And with luck, the wind will be out of the south so I can finish by hand-flying the River Visual to 19. That would be the way to cap it off.
  3. As a professional mentor of mine liked to say: corporate crises start in the marketing department. We had a nice community gathered around the developers, all keeping track of progress, exchanging information, getting to know and respect one another. Then the word came down: enough of that, communications needs to happen the old way, top-down, strictly managed, no more substance allowed here. So for want of food, the members started feeding on one another. Completely predictable. If your taste doesn’t run to street riots - as mine doesn’t - mig
  4. Very sorry to hear this. Clearly it's out of your hands... and if I had to guess, the new directive comes from Microsoft and Asobo... but it's a bad move. Undercuts a proven way of generating enthusiasm and creating a sense of community. Typical corporate over-control. As you might remember... only because I've pointed it out from time to time... ... I've made my living in corporate communications and PR for the past 30 years. So... take this as a professional opinion and feel free to pass it up the line. Probably won't help, but you never know. Maybe somebody can be persuaded to open
  5. Have you guys checked the FMA? He’s in TOGA LK. To the original poster - somewhere along the line you’ve climbed too steeply or gotten too slow, or both. The airplane is trying to keep you from stalling by going to full thrust and keeping the nose up. What you’ll need to do is lower the nose to gain speed. You want to get your airspeed above the yellow band. Then, when you have enough speed, you have to unlock your throttles by turning off autothrust, pulling the thrust levers back, then returning them to the climb setting and turning the autothrust back on. The air
  6. Well, I work from home, so I've gotten a head start. Happy to do my part to repopulate the forum...
  7. No problem - I'm having that kind of day myself. I'm sure this forum will get more current as posts about the Pro version pile up - at minimum it might make sense to relocate some of the stickies, though - some of them are a couple of years old.
  8. Speaking of which... @DaveCT2003, your reply to this user links back to the forum he already posted in - which is this one. If there is already a separate forum for the CRJ Pro, can you let us know where it is?
  9. Wondering if at some point, the CRJ Pro could get its own forum, similar to the Airbus Pro series. Have been trying to gather information about the new version and it's a little challenging to navigate through discussions of the earlier CRJ. This isn't essential and I'm sure you guys are busy with other launch-day stuff, but it'd be nice if you could consider such a move in future. Thanks! The Pro looks great, BTW - eager to learn more about it.
  10. Am coming late to this thread, and I'm also just getting back to the Twin Otter the way I usually do after a bout of too much complexity. I'd love to see an update and I'd be glad to pay for it. Third-party GPS integration (Flight1 GTN series in particular) is my number-one request. Anything else would be gravy. Looking forward to hearing where Aerosoft comes out on this project.
  11. Understand completely about the complexity of the Katana and the difficulty of porting it over to X-Plane. But unless the Katana and some of the other complex aircraft (like A2A's) move over, I won't be abandoning FSX anytime soon. Happy to look at X-Plane, and in fact I've been exploring X-Plane 9 to get the feel for it, but right now I'd expect to use it in addition to, not instead of, FSX.
  12. Apologies - my post wasn't nearly as clear as it should have been. I wasn't reacting to the OP at all - more to Mathijs' post. Though in fairness, now that I read what he wrote more carefully, I don't think he was drawing as sharp a contrast as I thought. And he did say it was his personal opinion, which is of course fine. All I really meant to say is that it's great to simulate things that customers could actually do... but there's also a place for simulating things that they could never do... and simulating them to a very high standard. That's the NGX, for me at least. I'll say this
  13. Speaking as someone who's flown a lot of FS GA... loves the Katana... is also a longtime airline buff and is currently learning airliner simming via the PMDG 737... I have to ask, why set up a conflict between the two of them? The choice between them isn't an either/or. Why not learn (slowly) to fly the NGX like a professional... and enjoy the Katana as though you own one and fly it on days when you're not flying the line? You could even branch out and spend some time in a restored warbird or propliner thanks to A2A, or borrow their Cub as though they were a friend of yours that had one to
