Re: Book or article

Yes, I have "Flying the Big Jets" by BA 747 captain Stanley Stewart. I have the 3rd edition, published in 1992. You can find new and used copies on Amazon, but I can't find any edition newer than that 3rd there. The book has 10 chapters on all aspects of flying, and one large chapter that details a ...

Re: .avi to .wmv conversion failure

H'm, to me it looks like you don't have the right codec to read the sound from the raw camera AVI. Can you play it with media player? I suggest that you browse http://www.videohelp.com/ for more help on this subject. You can also download tools like GSpot to figure out which codecs are needed, and w...

Re: FS9 regulary shuts down pc

Hi Nick,

Could it be something like overheating? The word damage sounds like such a thing, but I need some more text from that blue screen to be sure.

FS9 never shut down my PC, but it did cause a reboot when I had some old nVidia driver. Is yours up to date?

cheers,

Enno

Re: favicon

The icon you are referring to is actually coded into the webpage that is being viewed. Having an official one for SimAirline isn't a bad idea at all. The only problem I can see is deciding what to use as the icon since the SimAirline logo would not scale down to that size very easily. I know. KLM i...

favicon

Until recently every link in my browser toolbar had an icon next to it, except SimAirline.net. I now use a Firefox add-on named Favicon Picker 3 to put a KLM icon next to it, but I'd love to see an official icon there. Is it possible to put these icons on the site? I chose KLM for my link, because I...

Re: Another new pilot

Yes, that´s me, a small world isn´t? :D Where have you been Enno?? Well, when Rainer retired, I started looking for another VA, and found SimAirline.net, and another airline group, which is slightly bigger. I joined both, and flew 2 years for the latter, until I realized that they got a bit too muc...

Re: ICAO code confusion

Sorry about the confusion. I was indeed talking about Bali/Denpasar, and wondered whether it would be useful to put a note about those different ICAO codes in the timetable. FS 9 knows WRRR only, but I have no idea about FS X.

Are there any other airports with ICAO codes that changed since FS 9?

ICAO code confusion

When I tried to create a flight from Jakarta to Denpasar in FS 9, I found that the ICAO code listed in the timetable can not be found in the sim itself, due to the latter being outdated. As far as I can check on the web, the code listed in the timetable is OK, and both codes do refer to the same air...

Re: Turkish airlines crashes near Amsterdam Schiphol airport.

Here's the latest from the press conference that was given today at 2 PM:

I checked the news on other English speaking sites, like BBC and CNN, but they don't mention that the fault was in the RADIO altimeter.

Re: Procedures Manual - Feedback Wanted

Where possible, I use the author's manual as a first reference. Most Posky downloads have one, and if it's not included there, you can also find manuals on their web site, where they are often included with the FDE updates. Another source for manuals is this one: http://www.smartcockpit.com/ And a f...

Re: Thoughts so Far?

What's wrong with downloading Microsoft Excel Viewer, that's freeware isn't it? The filtering doesn't work there either, as that program won't allow edits. Edit: I have just discovered that the IATA/ICAO filter works in OO, maybe change the main filters to use that method? For OO it helps to select...

Re: HJG aircraft

I don't think word wrap would affect the cfg file, since that is a purely visual effect to make reading easier (I think). It shouldn't insert any actual line breaks into the document which would interfere with the way FS9 reads it. My roommate's a computer whizz, and confirmed that. Hi Tim, Your ro...
