  1. Word(s) association game

    It’s tempting landing at flight simmers to say - that’s the end of the thread - but in the spirit of ‘the show must go on’ - AVIATORS.

    Wain. It’s worth the effort. If you like I can screenshot the settings if you’re stuck. It is a bit fiddly but using it afterwards is a doddle.

    Opt in is easy. Gives me no problems. P3DV4. Nice aircraft. I’m flying it a lot before the Maddog lands. I wasn’t an original Maddog fan but I’ll likely be getting that in the near future!

    Hi Wain I've had EFB thre or four years and use it on most of my IFR flights. It is very good. I don't use the checklists section. The nav charts it produces are very good. I have Navigraph Charts Cloud too and sometimes prefer to check SID and STAR details there but not all those offer moving map facility which makes that side of it a little inconsistent. EFB does the lot! More important it has a free trial period period of 30 days (for the full system) - so no reason not to try it out. I did and could not bear to delete it after 30 days. And Froogle uses it on his full strength video flights! Cheers Dean

    Hi Wain I got the 717 at launch and it has been improved and supported very well over the last 12 months. Reminds of the MD11 and has FMC similar to airbus. Systems are good. FMC reliable - but not yet got holds - coming soon I understand. I flew this last night (KLAX to KLAX on Pilotedge) and it is one of my 'go to airliners'. In a way preferable to the NGX - but not quite at that level. Very nice aircraft. No regrets. Cheers Dean
  6. Ultimate Traffic Live Released

    So Guys Seems to be a lot of enthusiasm here. I've still got MyTraffic6 slowing my loading in P3dV4. After that, to be fair it is 'set and forget' (apart from the sliders). Do I take it this new UTlive is a 'buy recommend' from you experts? Thanks Dean

    I've been using it since it became available on v4 beta. Very nice aircraft reminiscent of MD11. Continually being developed no obvious faults though. FMC is good. Recommended by me!
  8. Not seen much on here since P3d 3.3 announced last week. I upgraded and didn't note significant improvements but have now removed and am fortunate to have 3.2 download available as a backup. The problem? Due to a permanent change in the software it no longer recognises many sceneries including all the UK 2000 sceneries and many others. Long thread developing about this in AVSIM - but this is a 'heads up' for those about to upgrade. As as a minimum make sure you have 3.2 in your download archive or consider waiting. Apparently Gary at UK2000 has said he will convert his offerings - but it will not be quick.
  9. Would someone compare AH withe FSE please? I've not tried either yet but on brief reading a) I am concerned about 'monthly commitments' on AH - I can't always take a lot of time to fly long trips. b). I like the FSE idea of flying passengers too. .... And probably many other differences. I prefer to fly Socal area with Pilotedge but note all the FSE FBOs are taken already - whether that affects me? Thanks
  10. Too much flight simming when...

    As I did yesterday - you pull up too quickly before a busy roundabout and say to the wife 'sorry, I'll hold short here'!
  11. Yet another month long sale has just started. https://www.fullterrain.com/
  12. Too much flight simming when...

    As I did this morning - when you find yourself checking the menu for the 'In and Out' burger bar at LAX!
