Re: Can I use this Free GPS addon?

I use it in the T-6 as well. You can add it to any aircraft as a 2d popup by modifying the panel.cfg file if you really want.

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

When you fly the EHAM practice, Trev has you tune the Localizer (you call ILS) for EHAM 36R. It's Identification is ABA, Frequency 111.95 Mhz, beam course 003M (or 004M or wherever depending on year). Remember? When you tune a localizer you actually tune up to 3 different receivers, for up to 3 diff...

Re: Bonanza N276BX CZL-RNT

How do you guys create the Skyvector flight plan link like that? I can't figure it out.
EDIT: I found it, thanks.

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Does anybody know how to use Plan-G to find the localizer frequency? Seems his latest issue is finding that info.

Re: inflight emergency

Rob, Please see the case I made for new trigger values below, TLDR: 5.57% First warning, 3.71% Emergency threshold. based on total fuel quantity for all tanks. I disagree that these numbers are appropriate for the L-49. I don't think you're considering how large these fuel tanks are. The fuel and pa...

FlapMan, I loaded PMDG 737 and with a flight plan SPJC-SCEL and found the plane can go up to FL381 wow! I also found Connie Service ceiling: 24,000 ft.
This was not the point I was trying to make with that statement.

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Tbilisi not hard enough of an airport for you huh? I am planning to set for Connie Altimeter gauge at 8,400 to Takeoff. I need a cruise at 18,000ft altitude but by adding 8,400 will be 26,400ft total for the cruise. Should I have a cruise of 26,400ft altitude or just stay at 18,000ft altitude as rec...

Re: inflight emergency

Long standing issue, at this point I just ignore it.. expect it on almost every flight.

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Pat, UGKO VP 342/[email protected].2nm TBS 113.70/[email protected].4nm UGTB This flight plan does not include an ILS. TBS is a VOR station, not an ILS. You intercepted and tracked inbound the TBS VOR Radial 313 (313-180=133 Omnibearing). Nice job. Thank you guys for the further explanations. The Instrument Landing Syste...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

So, G/S has nothing to do with navaids, correct? Pat From http://navfltsm.addr.com/ils.htm The ILS Components When you fly the ILS, you're really following two signals: a localizer for lateral guidance (VHF); and a glide slope for vertical guidance (UHF). When you tune your Nav. receiver to a local...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Correct, Excellent! He's flying a visual traffic pattern without visual references. A very "flight simulator" procedure. At 1:56:06 he says, "Hi folks and now I'm on my downwind leg... the airport is over off behind me on my left (turns to look at it)" This is a part of a rectangular traffic patter...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

The Glideslope showing unflagged at 3,000ft altitude? I never had such G/S like that. What is the problem with seeing a G/S needle at 3,000ft? Does the problem relate to where he is when he receives it? Or the altitude? You have on many cases received a glideslope at altitudes higher than 3,000ft s...
