According to the flight plan the Captain didn't use NDB navaids but VOR to VOR. Is it normal the Glideslope becomes un-flagged from the Omnibearing ILS gauge?
Pat
Can you explain what you mean by this? I found the video. Perhaps give me a time in the video that this happens?

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Let me ask if you don't mind, are you a real Pilot, former or student with airplanes. I will always be a student with airplanes. They really should tell you that when you start! And yes, I do have some piece of plastic somewhere that says I am a pilot on it. :mrgreen: I don't qualify to be a Pilot ...

Re: Trapped fuel

This could be related to not using a default flight. There could be a fuel selector somewhere in the simulation code that A2A isn't controlling, that keeps you from moving that fuel.
How do you start the simulator Cliff?

Re: flight planning: wind, flight level, route , fuel, time optimum

But in the 40s and 50s did they really calculate that things down to the last numbers or where there some rules of thumb to fly high or low etc.? They calculated to the "last numbers" with the best data they could reasonably get hold of. The rule of thumb is to choose the altitude that makes those ...

I don't want to use Cessna just to learn G/S should I?
No, you don't have to if you don't want to. Using MP to correct GS will work just fine in the Lockheed as it will the Cessna.

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

FlapMan, How do you handle the G/S? Smoothly. By thinking ahead. By making a change before I need it, watching to make sure the change I wanted is happening. And making any further corrections as needed. Nick sent me a link http://www.navfltsm.addr.com/ and I found tracking the glide slope is ident...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

OK, if NDB is not ILS why a Captain will use a navaids that never will give DME? Captain want's to find ILS beams, not mountains at night or in fog. DME reads the same at both places. Distance RJTT to Mihara VHF Omni Range (OSE 109.85) = 50nm. DME reads 50nm and it is time to turn. Distance RJTT to...

Is this something telling me which NDB can be used as ILS?
There are 0 NDB which can be used for ILS Pat. NDB=/=ILS. They are not the same. The green arrow is the ILS.

OK, how can we see the differences between NV and CL radios beacon if both are green circled from Plan-G...... here to watch on it ....
What is the large green symbol between NV and EHAM?
What is the large green symbol between CL and RJTT?

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

I tuned NDB navaids in RJTT: CL 200 KHz RJTT HME 112.20/337 I tuned NDB navaids in EHAM: NV 332 KHz EHAM ILS 36C - 111.95/004 Both were NDB so both should be used as ILS correct? If not, I don't understand. Pat You don't understand. They are separate systems. NDB's are the green circles in Plan-G. ...

Now confused, from Plan-G I can see no differences between CL navaids from RJTT and the NV navaids from EHAM. Both looks exactly icons so NV is an ILS and the CL is not?
There is another radio you tune in EHAM. Do you remember it?

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

Long post ahead, DME counter was increasing right after passed CL radio beacon. This is not a problem. It was probably increasing long before that (after you pass OSE my guess). I said DME was counting in backward I mean not counting the remaining distance of 11.2nm left to continue. It was counting...

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

At 28:30 you show with mouse you know the course is to the right. The airplane is left of course.
Why do you not turn right?

I mean do you use the ILS (Range) needle when flying between RJBE and OSE? Between OSE and CL?
No I don't.

Why not?

Re: Learning to fly the Connie

DME counter was increasing right after passed CL radio beacon. That doesn't make sense. CL does not use DME. What frequency was the DME tuned to? Was it DME1 or DME2? I will repeat the flight after adding VOR, HME 112.2/[email protected].2nm at the end of the plan. ( the added RJTT ---- [email protected].2nm makes confu...
