!! Windows 7 no longer supported !!

As Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 on Jan 20th we will be unable to test any of our
products on that platform. It may work, or it may not, but no guarantees from our side.

  1. Currently, the slats and flaps deploy at the same time. In the real airplane, this is not the case. When increasing flap setting, the slats always move first and lock in before the flaps start to move. When decreasing flap setting, the flaps move first, followed by the slats. Luckily, this gentleman on youtube has a video showing exactly this.
  2. For me too. A320 IAE P3D 4.4 using active sky. When altitude is managed (pressed in), a master caution single "ding" and FCTL Speedbrake still out ECAM memo displayed for a split second. Does not happen on ground, nor during descents. Seems to be isolated to climbs and level flight.
  3. I noticed something was seriously wrong when I tried to shoot the river visual 19 into DCA. In the final turn I was 10 degrees nose up and TOGA LK activated in the final turn just to maintain -700 fpm and Vapp!
  4. This is a nitpick item, but I use pounds (lbs) for my fuel units. However, when the load sheet prints after boarding, and the flight report prints upon gate arrival, the fuel weights are labeled in (lbs) but are really (kgs). For instance, it might say FOB: 3500 lbs when in reality I have 7716 lbs in the tanks, so it should read that. 3500 is pounds converted to kilograms. Not sure if the other weights on those printer sheets are wrong too, have only noticed the fuel so far.
  5. Hopefully these will shed some light. Note the pitch attitude in the first two vs. the 3rd: *Yes, there is a tailwind on approach. I have tested the same parameters with direct headwind, and direct crosswind. Highly similar results* I'm on a stable ILS autopilot ON thrust managed. Here's the loadsheet that's active: Here's the APPR data as calculated by the FMGS: Now I manually add 10 knots to Vapp by pulling the speed knob. Notice the difference in pitch attitude (closer to any other jet. In fact, I would think the pitch would be even lower. The 737-900 approaches at an artificially higher speed to increase tail clearance in the flare):
  6. I've just heard back from my friend who flies the CRJ-200/700/900 for a major U.S. regional carrier. According to him: If you are flying a NextGen CRJ-700 or 900, you can arm APPR from either mode and it should capture. If you are flying a non-NextGen 200 or 700, you have to switch the nav source to LOC1 to arm APPR. I know that Aerosoft has not simulated all NextGen features (no VNAV button on the MCP). However, I used to be able to arm APPR from the FMS flight plan and now I can't. The blue needle (LOC final approach course pops up when I tune the appropriate frequency, but it does not center up, and whenever I try to arm APPR from this mode, ROLL and PITCH arms instead). See this video @ 34:55 - he arms the approach right from FMS1 and everything arms and captures perfectly
  7. @GEK_the_Reaper that's exactly what I did. This problem occurs randomly, at default and payware airports like FT Boston. I've tried in patterns using LOC1 as the nav source and FMS1. This issue doesn't affect every flight. Today it is working fine. But when it doesn't work, when I arm APPR, instead of GS and LOC arming, LOC arms, but does not capture, and PITCH mode arms (instead of GS), so obviously it doesn't follow the glideslope. As I said, I only started experiences this problem after I purchased Active Sky 4. I can't see how these two things are related, but that is what I've found. I am using version, so perhaps the issue has existed since I installed that, but has not surfaced until now. I will continue to try to isolate the problem to figure out under what conditions it happens, but right now, everything seems identical. EDIT: After further testing, I haven't run into any problems arming APPR when 'green needles' are selected, but when the FMS1 is the nav source, the blue localizer needle doesn't react at all. I used to be able to arm the approach without switching NAV sources manually, and when the localizer came alive, it would intercept. Why can't I do this anymore?
  8. I have just started recently experiencing this problem. Cannot get the aircraft to intercept the localizer when APPR selected in FMS1 mode, or if I switch to LOC1 mode, the aircraft bank steeply and nosedives into the ground. I recently installed ActiveSky 4 for the first time; don't know if this is related.
  9. I have just discovered that this is covered in hotfix (did not know this existed until 5 minutes ago).
  10. When I load a custom panel state that has the APU running I am having trouble adjusting PAX and fuel. I begin to take out fuel and start clicking the button to do so, but as soon as the APU burns fuel, Dave registers this change (every 3 seconds or so) and resets the fuel to where it was before I started clicking. This forces me to quickly click subtract, and then press the load payload and fuel button (which freezes it at that new level), then frantically click some more to adjust it before it resets again. On another note related to custom panel states, sometimes when I load mine, the gear selector handle goes up when it finishes loading. Sometimes it doesn't. V running on P3D 4.2
  11. I believe I have found the root the issue: I can get the cabin to climb and keep up with the aircraft if using normal time compression. However, if I use 4x or 8x time compression, the cabin pressure will not keep up with the aircraft. In other words, the cabin is reacting to pressure changes as if time compression is set to 1x, though the aircraft is climbing at 4x or 8x. Doesn't really affect the usability of a product, just more of a nuisance as someone who uses time compression to complete more flights.
  12. One interesting thing to note--I don't know if it helps. When I load any panel state, the pack buttons are not depressed in the on position. They are not illuminated off, and the packs sounds are present, but I manually have to reset both of them so they are in the correct position and on.
  13. With new CRJ update I can't get the plane to properly pressurize. Coming through FL250, I get a "Diff Press" warning. Delta P is 9 and the cabin altitude is 700 feet at FL250. The packs are on, and all of the bleeds are auto/normal. All doors are closed. Running P3D v4.2.
