  1. Hi, i know is not an A333 but an A332, but would it be possible to have a fictitious livery similar to the Alitalia I-EJGA of the following photo? SELCAL KQFL. Thank you! A330-202 I-EJGA General Electric CF6-80E1A4 engines
  2. Yep! In any case, with a couple of months of little fixes here and there, will be a very pleasable bird to fly. Hope Aerosoft will give as the 200 series also (with the GE engines please :D)! Another beautiful, beautiful dream... the 60 version of the DC-8... It's just a dream, but.. who knows, Aerosoft?
  3. Was loading passengers with GSX, and meanwhile i started refueling with the built-in system. It never stopped: i've just made the fuel-less airplane today.
  4. I'll deal with it for the moment, maybe'll try PFPX... I'll see BUT! Guyz... I think i broke it.... Was going all ok, than at FL200 circa it started again refueling, and GWCG gone red 😕
  5. Yes I know that but, not owning PFPX, I plan my flights with SkyVector, setting precisely my route and adding also SIDs and STARs when it's able to add it (in flights from major airports they're often available), so whenever I open the FuelPlanner, after inserting departing and arrival airports, it gives me the shortest circle route obviously, but than I go to change the distance it sets to the one that SkyVectors gives to me... (for example, the LIRF-KIAD i performed was 3900nm for the Planner, but with the route I arrived to 4000nm); adding also the average wind that Active Sky gives in the briefring for every selected level, I thought to have a "nearly good" fuel calculation, but was actually very very poor: it said 44 tons, but I used nearly 60! But i'm also starting to think, if I'm the the only one, or one of the few experiencing this issue, that's a problem caused by some bad data inserted by me... This was the FuelPlanner loadsheet of yesterday: Cargo value is very high, because I ever try to simulate to the nearly MTOW I can reach (considering also the Max Landing Weight, there for example I didn't go further with the load, because I would have had a too heavy aircraft at landing).
  6. I completed a Rome to Washington DC today, but again the FuelPlanner gave me too low fuel... So I calculated it myself, with an average consumption of 6 tons per hour... And arrived safely with 5 tones still on the wings... The PERF calculations doesn't work actually, it just says -0.6 everytime...
  7. I'm having some issues with the FuelPlanner also... with the 320s works great, but the first flight I made with the 330, from KMIA to LIMC, using the wind data of Active Sky once inserted the route, it gaved to me like 41 tons, but i just arrived over Nantes when the engines died... And I noticed also that the ECAM doesn't give you any warning message about running low on fuel... anybody in the same situation?
  8. Hi! I just brought and downloaded the a320/a321 professional, and installed at version I have a little issue: during a climb at a selected speed, for example 310kts, when i need to switch to the mach speed and i press the button, it select the mach speed for just a micro-second to re-switch it immediatly to knots... i just noticed that this happen during climbs and not during descents... am i doing something wrong, or it could be some kind of issue? Thank you!
  9. It's impossible to update the INS during the Atlantic Crossing, there is no VOR/DME to use, the better you can do is to update it (and keeping it updating) at the last VOR you pass nearby before starting the Atlantic Crossing, and to re-update it once again when you're arriving in the other side of the Atlantic, with the first nearest VOR. You're welcome
  10. Ho acquistato questo fantastico aereo, e ora le long haul le volo praticamente solo con lui... Essendo fortemente legato alla storia di Alitalia, mi pesa un pò che la livrea non sia fornita, ma è anche comprensibile visto che Alitalia non ha mai avuto in flotta i DC-8 serie 50, solo i 40 ed i 60... A questo punto ho una domanda: E' possibile che Aerosoft sviluppi, considerando che è già presente la consistente base del 50, anche la versione 60? Un saluto, e buon volo a tutti!
  11. These are the steps that i follow to update my INSs systems: 1: i Set the knob in the WAYPOINT position 2: i set the Waypoint little wheel in 1 position 3: i press simultaneously 7 and 9 keys (clicking first on 7 with right mouse button and than 9 ever with right mouse button) <-- At this point the Display shows 0es in latitude and longitude 4: i instert latitude pressing before the north (2) or south (8) buttons, according to my latitude, and insert. 5: i insert the longitude pressing before the west (4) or east (6) buttons, according to my longitude, and insert. 6: inserted latitude and longitude, i press simultaneously keys 3 and 9 <-- Again, 0es appears in the Display --> 7: I press 2 or 8 button, both are useful for the same thing, and than i insert the altitude of the VOR rounding to 5 (if the VOR is 1200fts high, i simply press 1 to indicate 1000fts, if is 1700fts high, i press 2 to indicate 2000fts, if is 12500 high, i press 12 to indicate 12000fts), and i press insert. 8:I press 4 or 6 button, both useful again for the same thing, and i insert the frequency of the VOR (if it's 113.00, i press 1, 1, 3, 0, 0), then insert <-------------------> At this point all informations are inserted in the INS to update<----------------> 9: i Turn the Knob to the DISTANCE position 10: I Set the VOR frequency in the NAV radio corrisponding the INS that i'm updating (if INS1, i set the frequency in NAV1, if INS2, i set in NAV2), assuring the radio capture the frequency and shoes in the DME indicator the distance from/to the VOR. 11: i check if the distances in the DME indicator and in the INS are similar (for example, 44nm in the DME indicator and 46 in the INS, they're near each others) 12: I turn the knob again in the WAYPOINT position, than i press WAYPOINT CHANGE key in the middle of the INS, and than i press 1 (that is the waypoint corrisponding the DME station i inserted, concerning the waypoint wheel at step 2) 13: i turn the Knob in DSRTK/STS position, and than i press the 4 Key <-------------At this point on the right display appears 000004--------------> 14: Finally i press insert button Now my INS is starting to update, and i will see the progress in the decimal decreasing gradually to 1 Hope i wrote all correctly and i've been exhaustive, good luck!
  12. Ok, i just tested the reverse thrust of engines 2 and 3 during flight, it works! they gave you a very poor deceleration, but at least it works and help a bit... I understood thanks to your comments guys, and some internet researches, that the plane has only ground spoilers that can assume 2 positions, full up, and full down, and can only be engaged with the landing gear deployed... so the reverser takes the taks of the modern speed brakes. Regarding the post of @PMSoares, thank you for the advice! I'm just flying a leg from Dubai International to Rome Fiumicino on IVAO, and i will test this calculation to help me in my descent. Thank you all again guys!
  13. So the only way to reduce speed during descents is to use the reverser of the engines? I never thought that was a possible to do that! But i will have to do it, i'm tyred of program my descents 50/70nm prior of the TOD, either with low vertical speed such -1500fpm and the throttles in idle the speed increases so fastly! Thank you guys, i will test it tomorrow...
  14. I quote Gerbilsk for the Classic Alitalia Livery also, and yes, Alitalia had also the 50 version of the DC-8; it would be great, thanks!
  15. Hi, i'm having issues with my spoilers on the DC-8: i can't extend its during flight, for example, during the descent to the destination airport... i opened the operational manual and i saw that the hydraulic system that manage the spoilers is shared with the one of the landing gear, so when the landing gear is retracted, the spoilers doesn't recive any hydraulic pressure, but i also saw that they've a switch that can override this situation, so during a test flight i tried to set the switch in override mode, hydraulic pressure increased till 3000psi as the operational manual says, and then i tryed to deploy its (i were at 185 knots stable at 4000 feet), but nothing appened, when pressing the "ù key" used in FSX to deploy spoilers, they don't move, i can just arm them... There is something i'm missing or forgotting? Thank you in advance
