Well 4 training flights completed. I hope the trouble Joe's gone to won't be in vain :lol:
Not sure if its going to come out of the hangar that often, at this point. I'm using the KBT model as it seems to be the only one with a vc. The aircraft flies ok, but the vc leaves a lot to be desired. Daft things like having to go into the 2d to start the engines. Tried a couple of "upgraded" panels, but found them even less functional :dunno:
To fly the TRs I used the P3 Orion model , which FSA still recognized as an Electra. It comes with a slightly better vc, in so much as all the main bits work, but it's still a bit simplistic. So, we'll have to see *-)
What model are you using Joe?
Dale
Yeah! Already granted full ratings. I am also using the KBT model, made a few patches to the 2D panels, like removing almost all of them and patching in default 737-800 autopilot. It did seam that with the cargo model, when you hit engine start only #1 would start, where with the passenger model it would start normally.

Hello all,

As I'm stuck in a hotel room for a week or so, I've managed to get FSX running in my laptop. Could I have a TR for the 1-11 please?

Thanks!

4 training flights on VC8 completed.

Issues with the client reporting that I am overweight when i am not, and I think Max Land wt is wrong, manual says 2,000Kg contingency fuel needed on landing, Max ZFW is only 2,041 Kg below Max Land Wt.

Some SERIOUSLY accurate fuel planning needed

Adrian, I see on the FSA site you have TR ratings for both the Vickers Viscount 700srs and Vickers Viscount 800srs
