Hi Gents,

If it is not too much trouble, could I please get a training rating to get the B757 back please, would love to try the Flightfactor X-Plane 757 for the airline.

Hope all is well with everybody,
Cheers

Andy

There's not many routes for the 757, one of the reasons I let it lapse. Maybe we should have a few more. I'm sure the aircraft flew more routes that we have. I know I flew 757, Birmingham to Toronto via JFK in the 90s

I updated the 757 routes recently based on some research on 747 routes, there are a lot more destinations now.

Edit: These do include Birmingham to Toronto via JFK

Wow. That's great Joe. I never thought of looking. Hmm I still have the Just flight "freemium" 🙄 and QW 757 I wasn't overstruck on either. Don't know if they work in V5. I have enough on with the getting to grips with the Queen of the sky, and which version of Dash to get

During the holiday sales I picked up the Captain Sim 757 which does work in both V4 and V5, although the installer is not yet updated for V5, and I did manage to get it setup in an external folder that both can share.

Only real issue I have with the Captain Sim version is that the autothrottle does not seem to work, so until I either figure it out or they fix it I am not planning in using it in the VA.

Thanks for that Joe,
I shall look forward to flying her for the VA again.
I remember the first time that I had the rating I was using the CS 757 in FSX and it was not without it's issues which is why i flew all of the routes once and then let it lapse. Shame really as the 757 is one of my favourite airliners, luckily the Flight Factor model in X-Plane is top notch.

Yes all good here thanks mate, just trying to get through the lack of work and wonderng whether I will have a business att he end of it all.
Cheers
