Re: Non-British aircraft

I'm certain that EGNX-EGPF was operated by VC8 but lets not be picky.

EGLL-EGPF-EGLL and EGLL-EGPH-EGLL were almost hourly in direct competition to BA Shuttle

Re: Request for route EGPF to XBRO

What sim are you using, Broadford (Isle of Skye) doesn't exist in FSX, so we might have difficulty putting a route into the database.

I remember the airfield, flew in there myself in the late 70s in a PA28.

Re: Non-British aircraft

I was an ATCO at Glasgow when they were introduced on the LHR route. They were a nightmare, climbed so fast off the runway they had to do two frequency changes in about twenty seconds, and if they didn't get further climb clearance (initial clearance 6,000') by the time they were passing 3,500' they...

Re: Newbie help requested for Viscount & HS748

Just wondering if we have identical viscounts, my folder doesn't appear to have anything in ANSETT colours but it is certainly the Rick Piper/Fraser MacKay version. What version of FSX are you running and what basic OS? Not going to go into my assorted RW flights (mainly just jumpseat but including ...

As for the Viscount, start the engines and the stairs dissappear, same as on the Vanguard model.

Not ideal but for an aircraft that was originally designed for FS2002 it works.

Re: Gaining and maintaining Type ratings

I can't start it either in FSX.

Load a different aircraft, start the engines, then load the Andover and hopefully the engines will be running.

Then save that flight with the engines running and next time you load i t they should still be going.

Re: Andovers

I think we should have a route to EDDV for the A780.

Then on the return flight the controllers could say the immortal phrase:-

I have a radar handover on an Andover from Hannover over Dover over !
