Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Did you have login issues the last 2 days? No. But my web browser saves my login for A2A so maybe that is why I didn't have a problem. Seems you understand my analysis very well, yes your understanding of Omnibearing use is correct. Just remember that the changes are made to VOR2, VOR1 stays at 233...

Re: B377 not found in May 11 2020 update

Does it find any of your A2A aircraft? I asked about COTS because I didn't know if you had it installed. If it was true it was installed, then you would see the installer declare the Stratocruiser was "not found" but the COTS would be declared "found" because that upgrade changes the identity of the...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Okay, long post ahead. Have coffee or tea ready... rwy 35L ( I don't have 36L) Runway names change over years, even though the piece of concrete may be the same. It has to do with location of magnetic north pole. In real world the new number is painted on, the procedures, planning software, and FMC ...

Re: Carburettor Icing

the standard temperature "lapse rate" is 2°C decrease for every 1,000ft increase in altitude. So if I take your altitude of 2.5 and double it, I get 5. I subtract 5 from the reported OAT on the ground of 4, and I get -1. You report you entered sea mist, which is a form of visible moisture. So you ar...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

I'm glad I waited to comment until after watching the 2nd attempt. Pat the 2nd attempt was much much better than the 1st, and probably one of the best approaches you have ever flown! Your biggest issue still relates to basic aircraft control. You do not change MP enough during the approach. Connie f...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Thank you for flight reports Pat.

I have watched first attempt, but would like to watch 2nd before I comment. I also am going to bed. Can probably give detailed response late tomorrow night.

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

FlapMan, first I want to deal with the same flight plan I do have Take-off from LTBQ. I know is a bit longer time. It is okay. I began the approach, switched VOR2 to VOR1 and immediately descending up to 1,425 ft following the Localizer but I never saw DME 3.9nm it was 0.4nm I can think of two reas...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

===> I was at 5,000 over BKZ beacon and turned to heading 052 for one minute. Good, you did this correct. Then, turned to the left and started descending so at BKZ back again I was at 4,000 and lost. Should have turned to right not left, otherwise correct. ===> Way before reaching BKZ I heard an al...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Look's like a decent attempt. You did a good job finding BKZ the first time. Were you at 4,000 here? You also did a good job of knowing when you were over BKZ, and starting the correct turn to HDG 052. You did not turn too early or too late. After HDG 052 you should have made a turn to the right, no...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

I am ready for your new flight plan for LTBA Okay, lets try it. This is the LOC-Y 23 LTBA. First some explanation and context. Ignore the G/S needle. It will swing on the display on this approach. Ignore it. Pretend it is broken. Pretend that last week a Greek DC-3 struck the antenna and bent it. W...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Hi Flapman. Happy New Year 2021. Thank you! I am trying to fly near to 1000 ft ALT to intercept Glideslope and looking at PAPI lights. You had error of 500ft on this goal. 50% This is all I think I need to know because I don't see how to follow g/s 3.2 I guess g/s 3.2 means -320 feet from Vertical ...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Hi Pat, hope all is well! I wonder how to handle G/S 3.2 degrees? I want to learn/refresh .....etc. Patricio It is the same pilot error you make in EHAM ILS 36R. You are much better now you follow localizer beam. You can find runway no problem now.. even with other errors. Isn't that nice? Remember ...

Re: Lack of peristence

once again its not very clear. Ookay...I try again. I dont seem to be getting that. If you have same fluid levels on the next simulator session then you most likely are getting that. Another good way to tell is to check the hours in the maintenance hangar. Your airplane and engines accumulate hours...
