  1. Thank you for the additional infos. I am aware about the function of the cost index. But while the speed changes more than expected (e.g. 290 kts with CI=30 to 340 kts with CI=90), i have no feeling about the fuel usage. Thats why i ask for the CI that is used with the Fuel Planner by Aerosoft. Its still unclear for me, because it contains no information.
  2. Hmm, interesting. Why does SPD Change CI 0 (which would be slower) use 64 KGS, while CI 50 (which would be faster) use only 17 KGS more? *confused* *Edit: Ok, now i understood: "M" 0064 KGS "minor"? And "P" 0017 KGS "more"?? That would be nearly neclectable, seen on the whole trip. Or do i interprete wrong?
  3. Dear Aerosoft Support Team, a fuel question: Is there a thumbrule, how to increase the amount of fuel, when i fly with a higher cost index? (E.g. when i want to fly faster, i fly with an index of 50, 70 or 90). How much more fuel do i need then compared to the results of the fuel planner? What cost index is taken in the background?
  4. I assume you loaded the flightplan (your flightplan created with PFPX and entered in your aircraft) into the P3D Flight Planner? Then you got clearance for your IFR flight? You can ignore the directions given from ATC in the first 1-2 legs of your flight. Just follow your FMC computed plan. You will stay close enough to the planned route that it will not abort the IFR flight. But you should folllow the altitudes given from ATC. There it seems to be more sensitive for deviations. Only in the approach phase, the vectors from ATC can lead far away from the computed FMC route. I fly this then with "selected" settings in the Airbus. I plan my flight, load it with the P3D Flight Planner, program the MCDU and take off. I follow the altitude steps from ATC, but i follow the lateral path from my MCDU. When coming to the arrival ATC area, i follow fully the ATC until touchdown. Works fine.
  5. Kann man Euch (Aerosoft) bei der Übersetzung der Anleitungen behilflich sein? Korrekturlesen? Oder Abschnitte ins Deutsche übersetzen? In der DCS Welt sind es durchaus Leute aus der Community, die bei den Übersetzungen der Anleitungen der einzelnen Maschinen helfen...könnten wir hier ja auch so machen.
  6. Hi Rolf - A320, correct loadsheet generated - in my case there were 136 passengers planned - MCDU3 with LSK1R - ACT was correct (136/136), but the "boarding" stayed orange, even after closing the doors. Jan
  7. Update - Cargo loading worked fine yesterday (A320) -seems to be solved 2nd issue detected - PAX Boarding did not get green after it was finished. Stayed orange all the time. But i could do and finish my flight. Thanks! Jan
  8. A good first question: I was on (i was not aware an update was released until now) I updated to right now and will try soon if that solved my problem. I will give feedback here.
  9. Hello dear Aerosoft Support Team, i have a problem with loading cargo on my A320. Conditions: 1) Loadsheet generated (with the correct Aircraft) 2) GSX not used 3) Aircraft with external power at the gate (chucks set, no engines running) 4) Both cargo doors open. In MCDU3, i load the "loadsheet", then i start all 3 steps: 1) PAX boarding is fine (number increasing) 2) Fuel loading is fine (number increasing) 3) Cargo - nothing happens. The LSK letters are "white" - no blinking, no activity, no increasing cargo visible. When i push the "instant load" button, everything is OK. Only the realistic progressive loading of cargo does not work Do i need to wait much longer? Or is something wrong in my process? Thanks for advices, Jan
  10. Hi mopperle, yes i will try in the next days. I remember there was a message from AC shortly after P3D crashed. I can not remember it so i will post a screenshot asap. Regards, Jan
  11. Hi Wolfgang, can AS load the Airbus .flp? I assumed thats not possible. So, when i planned/entered manually a flightplan in the Airbus MCDU (or loaded a co-route .flp), how do i get exactly this flightplan to be loaded in AS without manually waypoint by waypoint?) Jan
  12. Dear AS Support Team, when i programmed the MCDU for the flight (e.g. the EDDFEGLL01 Tutorial flight), and i try to download the winds from Active Sky for P3D, the simulator crashes to the desktop. Conditions: 1) Current version of Airbus is installed (A318 - A321), as well as Active Sky in the newest version. 2) Company route for the tutorial is loaded and completed with a SID and a STAR (in MCDU) 4) A manual flight plan is calculated in Active Sky (EDDF to EGLL), winds etc all shown in Active Sky. I see the same Waypoints as in the MCDU flightplan. 5) The .wx file is in the correct folder mentioned in the Step-by-Step-Guide. What i dont understand: Can i load the MCDU flight plan directly into Active Sky somehow? Did i miss something in the Tutorial? --> How can i assure that Active Sky has exactly the same flight plan than my Airbus? Do i need to add more than the Waypoints? Are SID and STAR somehow relevant for the import/datalink? Maybe i do something wrong in this combination that leads to the crash. Regards, Jan
  13. Ich möchte mir auch ein solches Buch zulegen, allerdings sind die Amazon-Rezensionen katastrophal: Es scheint extrem viele Fehler (Rechtschreibung, Wiederholungen, falsche Bildbezeichnungen, usw...) zu enthalten. Es gab mal eine Alternative ("Alles im Griff - Aerosoft A320"), aber das ist überall vergriffen...
  14. Ich wäre auch sehr froh drüber. Habe seit dieser Woche die ganze Airbus Family und stosse im Step-by-Step Tutorial immer wieder auf Abweichungen, die mir als Anfänger oftmals Schwierigkeiten bereiten
  15. Hi Bob, 3) what does that mean for the tutorial flight? What would be best practice now to solve this?
