  1. Version 1.14 have just been released, and it can be downloaded from AVSIM using this link: https://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=p3dutil&DLID=215448 I urge to you to watch the video released with version 1.11 (available via the help-menu) as it tells you how you can manage your flightplans. A video explaining most of the changes in version 1.14 have also been uploaded to YouTube and link for this video is also available via the help-menu. Here is a list of the changes in version 1.14: - Flightplan file-format was changed, to accommodate changes to the airline-data. In previous versions the airline ICAO-code had to be unique, hence not allowing old defunct airlines still remaining in the data-file when a new airline would be issued the same ICAO-code (now they can both exists, and many of the defunct have been marked as defunct). On start-up old flightplans in enabled folders will automatically be updated to the new format. If you have sub-folders containing additional flightplans, you should make sure these are enabled, in order to have these updated as well. Once they have been updated you can go ahead and disable these sub-folders again as you please. Its now possible to add user defined airlines, in case you want to add you own fictitious airlines (e.g. VA's) or you want to add airlines missing in the official data-files that I supply with the program (if this is the case, please notify me, so I can add these in the next release of the program). "Favorite aircraft" have been renamed into "Favorite aircraft-types", as it is the "types" of aircraft you mark. You don't mark a particular aircraft/cofiguration (like the PMDG B737-800 NGXu) as your favorite, but rather the "type" (B737-800). The file containing the (active) favorite aircraft-type selection was renamed as well (you don't have to do anything, the file is automatically renamed on start-up). Added a new Unit-Conversion form, letting the user convert units of: Speed, Lenght/Distance, Weight/Volume, Pressure and Temperature. The Weight/Volumne conversions is a bit special as it lets the user convert between weight (kg/lbs) and volume (liter/gal), thanks to a Fuel Density that defaults to 0.785, but can be changed by the user. All search-forms (seaching for airport, aircraft and airline) was changed to ignore whitespeaces (e.g. "airBaltic" vs. "air Baltic"), and ignore diacritics (e.g. "Aerolínea" vs. "Aerolinea"), making it more easy to find what you are searching for in one go. The airline search-form will by default exclude airlines that have been marked as defunct. However a new "Include defunct" check-box have been added to the form, allowing you to include these (who am I to say you can not still use "Air Berlin", "Monarch" or "Thomas Cook" flightplans if you want to). Added 3 new columns to the airline search form showing commence/cease-date, and wheter or not the airline is "in use" (as carrier/operator by any of the active fligthplans). State is now by default excluded when using the airport search form, which make it a lot more convenient to find airports in the city of "New York". State can still be included in the search by choosing a different search-type using the combo-box in the upper/right corner. When Flightplan Visualizer needs for perform potentially lengthy operations it will spread the workload over the available cores of the CPU. However if you want to limit which cores it uses you can now set the affinity-mask in the settings form. The splash-screen shown when the program starts, and when reloading active flightplans was prevoiusly always shown on top (top-most), but if you find this anoying it can now be disabled in settings. Fixed: Warnings/errors regarding loading flightplans were only displayed at start-up. Now they are shown whenever all active flightplans are loaded (e.g. after having enabled a sub-folder). Data: The airline-data got a major update, and a bunch of new airlines were added, and the data for MANY others were updated. It is a manual process to update these, almost as funny to do as to watch paint dry 😉 Data: A few countries had a wrong- or no sub-region code, so these were fixed/updated. As usual, if any of you spot any erros, or missing data, please use the forum to notify me. Data: Additional info added to the aircraft-data (in preparation for some future plans). Flightplans: All flightplans bundled with the installer have been updated to the new file-format. Flightplans: Thanks to Ryan Carson (RCAI) for allowing me to bundle the installer with a few of his flightplans, so the installer comes with the very first winter 2019-2020 flightplan. Flightplans: The good people over at AIG (Alpha India Group) have been VERY busy since the last release, hence the installer comes with +130 new pre-imported flightplans, bringing the total to 629. This update concludes Summer 2019, and AIG already have the first Winter 2019/2020 flight-plans in beta-test.
  2. Contradicting the big Boss ... better start working on your job resume 😉
  3. Or simply never though about it. I have a profile with eye-candy for the very few times I do VFR, and another I use most of the time for Airliners. But I never though about using a profile for accelerated flights, but I will have one now 🙂
  4. After updating to 2.0.0.1 I tried to do a flight from ENGM to ENBR (ENGM/01L ATLAP5A ATLAP N623 PESUR PESUR3N ENBR/17) in the CRJ 900. I used the Navigraph charts many times with out any problem, but after I had landed at ENBR I tried to open the airport chart at which point I had a CTD. Here below are the 5 logged events (in order) all logged within 7 seconds (sorry its in Danish - but ask if you need a translation).

  5. Just a guess: can it be a throttle calibration problem where the sim reads positive throttle input while you apply F2?
  6. In the video i show a flight-sheet that I am using to note ATIS and commands from ATC along with some key info I note regarding my flights: I have made this available for those who might like it. The download contains a small readme explaining how I fill the form, the the form is available in two versions, both intended to be printet on A4 paper. One will have a single form, and the other will contain 2 forms. I normally print the latter in duplex so that I will have 4 forms for each sheet of paper. Anyway it can be downloaded using this link: FlightSheet.zip
  7. I've just uploaded an AFCAD with enlarged gates to the download-section. This file will enlarge the gates E9, E12, E15, E17, E21, E23, E31, E33, E35, E41, E43, E45, F21, F23, F26, F31 from 33 meter to 36 meter allowing GSX to handle 747's without complaining.
  8. Version 1.0.0

    9 downloads

    This AFCAD for Aerosoft EDDK 1.0.6 only contains a few changes in form of a few cargo parkings being extended from 33 to 36 meters, as GSX is not happy using 33 meter gates for (PMDG) 747's. Trying to invoke GSX with a 747 at these gates, you would otherwise simply be told the gate is not large enough (extending the gates to 36 meters solves this issue). The cargo parkings on the southern side of the cargo buildings are fairly close, so I have left these unchanged. Hence I've only enlarged the cargo parkings on the northern side of the cargo buildings as theses were spaced further apart, hence would not overlap when enlarged. These are parkings that were enlarged from 33 meter to 36 meter: E9, E12, E15, E17, E21, E23, E31, E33, E35, E41, E43, E45, F21, F23, F26, F31. To install this changed AFCAD file navigate to the folder where you have the Aerosoft EDDK scenery installed (e.g. "C:\Program Files (x86)\aerosoft\Cologne-Bonn Professional\Scenery"). In this folder rename the file "EDDK_ADEP4_ADE.bgl" into "EDDK_ADEP4_ADE.org" so you have a copy of the original AFCAD in case you would want to revert to it. Next copy the "EDDK_ADEP4_ADE.bgl" bundled with this readme into the same folder and you are ready to go. If you run with Flightplan Visulizer, or other software that is using the output of MakeRunways (by Peter Dowson) you should run MakeRunways after having copied the new file, to update its output files so these 3rd party programs will know about the enlarged gates.

  9. In the video above I show how to use the "Search Legs" feature to find flights, and how you can transfer the data to SimBrief, but I forgot to mention there is a way for those of you using other tools to extract info regrading a flight, in case you use other software e.g. PFPX. There is not a specific export for these tools, but the data can be extracted into a text file. First you start by using the "Search Legs" feature as outlined in the video. Here (marked in red) I have selected the 3 CRJ's for which the AI flightplans contains data. Also I have selected that both departure- and destination- airport must be airports I have marked as favorites, and last I have marked that either airport must be one I have ranked as a "3rd party quality" airport (which I do for the 3rd party airports I have bought). This way I am sure the flight that are found during the search will either begin- or end at one of my 3rd party airports (actually both could be 3rd party, but in this search I did not demand it): Once I have performed the search I open the "Generic Randomizer" form. Here I simply press the "Pick random flight" button at the bottom, and it will automatically pick one of the searched flights and show it in a "Leg info" form. If I am unhappy with the flight, I simply hit ESC to return to the "Generic Randomizer" form, and hit the "Pick random flight" until I find a flight I want to fly. The lower half of the "Leg info" form shows all flights (legs) in the AI schedule for this particular aircraft, and if you click another flight, the info for that flight will be displayed in the top half (this is another way to pick the flight you want to fly): Once I have found the flight I want to fly I can hit the "Copy to clipboard" button in the lower/left corner of the form, to copy the info on the screen (and some more) to the clipboard. You can then paste this text info a text editor, from where you can then copy various elements you need and paste them into your flight-planning software, self-made flight briefing packages are what else you might need: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Flightplan name...........: American Eagle - Su18 Flightplan filename.......: American Eagle - Su18.BFP Flightplan org. filename..: AIG_AmericanEagle_Summer_2018v2.zip Author....................: Ben Macdougall (AIG) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Flight No.................: 5672 (KCLT/CLT - KIAD/IAD) Flight level..............: FL310 Cruise speed..............: 445 / 445 Distance..................: 279,4 Nm Flight-time...............: 01:17 / 01:20 ----Flightplan---- ----Calculated---- UTC Local UTC Local Out: MO/19:50 MO/14:50 MO/19:50 MO/14:50 Off: MO/20:09 MO/15:09 MO/20:09 MO/15:09 On.: MO/21:00 MO/16:00 MO/21:03 MO/16:03 In.: MO/21:07 MO/16:07 MO/21:10 MO/16:10 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Carrier...................: American Airlines (AAL/AA) Operator..................: PSA Airlines (JIA/OH) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Aircraft IATA/ICAO........: CR9/CRJ9 Aircraft Name.............: Bombardier CRJ900/Challenger 890 Aircraft Registration.....: N566NN Range.....................: 1596 Nm Min. gate radius..........: 19 meters Min.

  10. Nice 🙂 The EFB looks amazing ... like the rest of the aircraft
  11. Mathijs please don't "get a life" ... we want to see these addons comming in the future also 🙂
  12. Having just been playing around with my (warthog) throttle in the CRJ they are butter-smooth, not jumping around or anything. For the best result I have to disable them in FSUIPC and only have them configured in P3D, and set the "Throttle Axis Value Range" in the EFB to "Default". This way the CRJ is reacting to the full range of my throttle and there is some "spacing" between the "CLIMB", "TOGA" and "MAX POWER". Disabling them in P3D and configure them in FSUIPC in stead (and set the CRJ EFB to "FSUIPC without Reverser Range"), they are still butter smooth but now it seems the CRJ is only reacting to half of my throttle range (the CRJ goes to "MAX POWER" when I feed in about 1/2 of the throttle movement), and since it only reacts to half of the movement "CLIMB", "TOGA" and "MAX POWER" are very close to each other (harder to dial in). EDIT: Just a quick follow up. If I run them through FSUIPC and configure the CRJ EFB to "default" (even though I use FSUIPC) they run just as fine as if running them in P3D. The CRJ is reacting to the full range, and at no time I have seen any spikes or jitter.
  13. I run with FSUIPC also and have never had any problem with it, but are using digital throttle (Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS).
  14. Some aircraft are not happy with the throttle being fed via FSUIPC, but could it perhaps help with noisy pots, as it can handle spikes, and smooth the signals? ... just an idea
  15. I have just uploaded a new video where I show how I use Flightplan Visualizer myself before buying new airports and aircraft, and how I use it to find inspiration of flights to fly (based on AI flights). Perhaps it can offer some inspiration to you also?
