If someone can find me a good panel with a flight computer, that would be good At the moment I'm using the default MSFS 04 panel and it's not too great. Didn't make it to Manchester but did get some screenshots up in the screenshot thread.

Only the PMDG MD-11 is really good. Don't remember if there is a FS2004 version, though I'm sure there was one.

I'm currently half way between Sydney and Auckland, at 57,300ft and doing 1400mph!   Should arrive soon.

All the recent Concorde flights inspired me to fire up Concorde and take it out for a run. I should arrive with about 15T of fuel left over, which is adequate. You don't want much less than that or you begin to get quite worried.   Fortunately I still have the old fuel-calculator I programmed in Flash some time ago. Unfortunately, I can't release it because it's part of a commercial product - but it's still useful.

Edit: Argh, Wilco is going faster than me again!   Okay, I need that BAe HOTOL with it's Rolls Royce RB545 engines - that should be fast enough. Smile

Edit 2: Now it's back to business, time to think about slowing down and descending.  Smile Should take 192NM using the 380kias descent profile.

Okay, I'm in Auckland now - after 1 hour and 14 minutes, I've landed on runway 05R, with 17.3T of fuel left over, and the brake temperatures are currently about 410 degrees celsius - so I've turned on the brake fans to keep them cool.

Because I didn't begin descent quite soon enough, I had to use the old faithful "fall off the wall" descent procedure in order to slow down and descend in time.   At one point, I had 14,000ft/min descent.  

I also need to shutdown 2 engines, otherwise it is horrid to taxi a light Concorde with 4 engines - she goes far too quickly, too easily. 2 engines make it easier to taxi Concorde without having to be on the brakes all the time.

I never got those ones, only the B744 and the MD-11. I do have the LD763, but don't fly it much. I prefer the PMDG planes.

Meanwhile, my brakes are still very hot, and the brake fans are still blasting away.

Currently over the Atlantic in the 744 heading towards Lagos. Heading towards the WIGGI intersection then direct to GVAC then over to the African coast line. LNAV and VNAV on at FL320 probably will put her up to 340 then get to bed wake up an hour before landing. (failures have been turned off of course)

You (or anyone else) have any tips on a high elevation T/O from JNB. I am planning on doing JNB-MIA tomorrow night. Winter their so that helps a bit but I tried a t/o from JNB a few days ago in the PMDG 744 and their is plenty of runway to work with but that climb out was so slow, even got the stick shaker come on once or twice. Was afraid to make a turn. Plane will be pretty heavy with at least 330,000lbs of fuel.

Just did JNB-Mauritius-JNB in the 744. Time to head back to the home base MIA. Wont be getting to do much flying soon with grad school starting up so getting in my last good flights until my month long winter break in December which will consist of a lot of PMDG 737NGX flights

JNB-MIA

Well just realized the 744 does not exactly have the best range for JNB-MIA. The flight is exactly 7,000NM the range of the 744 is 7,260NM. With a close alternative of FLL and very low cargo number but pretty much full passenger load the fuel calculators and FMC say I should make it into MIA with 24,000lbs of fuel to spare. This should be interesting with the high elevation t/o good thing this is FSX no worries about ditching in the atlantic or diverting to Barbados   
This is where a good 777LR for FSX would come in handy. Could always make the responsbile stop in CPT but lets see what happens non-stop.

Good luck! Maybe it is possible, but you are flying westbound, which will give you headwinds on the route and then you will be very difficult to make it nonstop. Even with full fuel load it will be a close call.
The take off itself is limiting as well. I doubt you can go full passenger load and fuel out of JNB, elevation is simply too high. 744 is not the best option for such a long flight from the high elevation airport.
I took off from MEX to FRA with a lot of passengers and it was just barely able to make that flight due to the high elevation we couldn't take off with MTOW (395tons), the maximum we could depart with was 335 tons. So you are very limited on high elevation airports.

Did not know they made a stop with the A340s, I knew that when they flew 744s to the US they would stop at CPT.

Quoting wilco737 (Reply 168):

Yea, I am thinking maybe a stop will be the right thing to do. Not sure if it will be somewhere in Africa or take the quick flight to CPT. This is where I need a 777LR for FSX!

edit: Just made the decision to make this a flight that stops in the Caribbean somewhere, not sure where but it makes sense and will pick up some cargo and pax there too and head over to MIA. Make it about a 6,200 mile journey instead non-stop from JNB to SDQ.

[Edited 2011-08-04 14:02:08] T/O still wont be easy thats for sure.

I just took off from Panama City-Tocumen airport on a DHL 757F, bound for San Pedro Sula, Honduras. I'm doing a round-the-world project where I use real flights and land at every country that took part in WC2010. Had to use fictional flights somewhere, like Ljubljana-Bratislava-Copenhagen, where I'll use a 757 in Boeing livery. Started in Santiago, Chiles and will end in SCL too.
Nothing compares to taking off in an empty 757 with full thrust!

I am on the return leg of my first ‘passenger’ carrying flight using the wonderful PMDG Boeing 737 NGX.

I am flying from my home town (BOH) to Rhodes (RHO) and back on the PMDG Boeing 737-800WL (NGX) – the aircraft is amazing far better than anything else I have ever bought on FS – even beating other PMDG products.

Tried to keep the simulation as ‘real’ as possible so the load is Y class and for the time of year I have a full load of PAX. Only thing that is not so ‘real’ is the livery I am flying is one of British Airways, who of course does not fly the B73NG in real life – but hey!

Simply amazed with the PMDG B73NGX – well worth the price! Bye Bye PMDG MD11, hello PMDG B73NGX

You’re lucky – while I enjoyed a very healthy tail wind on my way to Rhodes (RHO) an average of 68kts. To maximize the winds aloft I stayed at FL350 and knocked over 25 minutes off my planned flight time of 3 hours and 30 minutes.

Unfortunately what helped me on the outbound flight was a massive hinder on the return sector!

HiFi’s ActiveSky weather programme predicted head winds of over 70kts at both FL340 and FL360. To make matters worse due to a full load of PAX and their associated baggage (and a small amount of cargo) I would be unable to climb (even stepping) to anything over FL360.

The result of the above = a bumpy flight from Rhodes (RHO) to Bournemouth (BOH) burning a lot of fuel and while I departed on time I arrived late – those head winds really did batter the poor B738WL-NGX!

I got a ‘Buffet Alert’ quite a few times just for good measure – nice to be warned though...

Next – Bournemouth to Larnica (Cyprus)

I was successfully able to land in HNL from FRA by a Boeing 747-400. I had enough time for my plane to land but stopped in the taxiway (near the runway) because there was no fuel left - the engines stopped. Then use "slew" as a tractor to the terminal. That was the longest route I've ever had. I don't remember how long it was.

I also use ActiveSkyX! It almost always give me headwinds, I don't know why! Once I was flying HKG-LAX on the PMDG 744 and I landed with a very light load of fuel left, same goes for LAX-HKG. All in real time. Fighting headwinds from HKG-LAX and v.v. doesn't sound too good either, thankfully I made it.

It was tough to decide with what aircraft I wanted to do the RTW trip. So I finally decided on the ATR as I can land at airports I would have never flown into on FS.

My route is wacky.   Hope you are ready for it. The longest routes are full of fuel with no cargo and usually just make it to the airport with fumes to run out of fuel while final for landing. So i just glide in and land.

Nice route, but damn i wouldn't do that route in the ATR, you must be a very patient man, KUDOS!

Next flight will be RRG-NKW, I hope i make it.

Only 75 miles longer than DZA-MRU! I don't hope you glided into MRU

My landing gear is at Maho beach, and the rest of the fuselage scattered across SXM

That is GOLD!


Right now my private 757 is parked at my secret compound that I built in ADEX at Atlantic City (used one of the empty ramps out on the edge of the field).

That's nothing compared to the flight around the world along the equator I did in a Cessna 172 together with fellow a.netter jamesbuk... took about a week nonstop (with unlimited fuel enabled).
I am glad I didn't pay the electricity bill myself at that time  Wow!

Had a bit of a tail wind which has helped, now decending into Kos, flight time so far 3 hours, with another 25 mins left to go.

Now down, total flight time 3hr 41m, almost perfect touchdown after a visual approach  Smile
