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...

Re: Lack of peristence

Here is the relevant statement from the manual: PERSISTENT AIRCRAFT Every time you load up your L-049 Constellation, you will be flying the continuation of the last aircraft which includes fuel and oil, along with all of your system conditions. So be aware, no longer will your aircraft load with ful...

Re: Making the FE do stuff

Hi G, congrats on buying the Connie. She can be a handful but she's fun to fly! A lot of your questions will be obvious as you get experience, but here's a reply to help. Does this mean that to make the FE start the engines you just turn the master ignition on then hit ctr-E (or 4 variations of it t...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Pat I think you did an excellent job flying the Connie here. You used both DRMI and VOR needle to find Tenerife. That was very good progress on those skills. Your landing of course needs work but that will come with time.
I think it went much better than even 747 flight, don't you think?

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

distance between them is 0.5nm, for the type of flying you're doing that's basically the same location

Re: Where does the TO shake come from?

CRJ-200 CJR-700/900 EMB-135/140/145 ERJ-170/190 All use an automatic brake application to stop rotation of MLG during the retraction sequence. None, by design, retract rotating main wheels into the aircraft. All have scrubbers for NLG tires. If that helps... ... I'm actually surprised the T-38 didn'...

Re: Cabin Heat

So did A2A code this as a "land immediately" type of emergency? Or, can I try to continue if I can descend into warm enough air to regulate the cabin temp?

I thought that was the Flight Engineer's job.
My presumption is this is the Flight Attendant's job. The engineer provides the appropriate supply of hot (body heaters) or cold (cooling compressors) air to the cabin, and the attendant meters that supply to regulate the actual cabin temperature.

I think in less than 2nm Connie will not be able to climb 8,000 ft. Is it possible?
I didn't choose the airports, you did.

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

I did find an IFR departure for UDSG. To vastly simplify it for Pat, you need to already be at 13,000ft by the time you reach GRM. The Minimum Safe Altitude for your flight plan is 14,500ft.

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Applied flaps down and Connie started pitching up too high. I can't duplicate this. I followed your procedure exactly. I made no correction with the autopilot pitch knob, and the Connie only climbed 150ft before descending again. Pitch up was only a couple degrees before the autopilot was able to c...

Re: Cabin Pressurization

Yes it's quite entertaining juggling turbosupercharger bleed output vs carburetor temperature vs descent rate vs maximum mach vs maximum airspeed in the descent :D
Woohoo!
