Re: Navigation rules, what is required at least in the USA?

While it is true, the airlines and some corporate jet operators have dispatchers who handle flight planning the pilot still needs to know/understand his route and make changes to his routing as needed such as weather, favorable winds aloft long after the plan was made, etc. We in FS do not have the ...

Re: Destination of the Week - Nairobi, Kenya

I realize we're talking about Nairobi not Johannesburg, I was just making it a point. BTW great screenshot, another great wallpaper collection to add to my PCs I would take on FSX but I know that means that I will not be able to max it out and that I'd have to buy most of my addons all over again.

Re: A380 flight

well he ASKED if there were any 380 flights, and I mentioned SQ but it is not what SA.net offers and I can't go telling who does. So it IS relevant, stop trying to judge/decide how its irrelevant, YOUR post is irrelevant for the most part anyhow and so is this one.

Re: Navigation rules, what is required at least in the USA?

so if RNav uses a combined ground/gps system... why use RNav at all? Just use the GPS when you can't use ground based nav and then switch back when you can use ground nav again. I hear that older aircraft didn't have RNav and had to use the inertia system tor navigating over the oceans or when groun...

Re: what do you use for taking screenshots?

Not sure I mentioned this, but I have FS Flightkeeper, which has a built in screenshot manager, it records when the screenshot was taken such as time (fs time), altitude, heading, waypoint (if you take the shot as it logs the waypoint), etc. I unfortunately will be reformatting, going back to XP as ...

Re: Dubai and JFK A380 terminal

I'd like to comment briefly on gate numbers as well... there is an airport not comparable in size though that does something similar at least here in the US. KMFR-Rogue Valley International Airport only has 4 gates but several airlines operate from that airport, our only single jetway and the pads f...

Re: Destination of the Week - Nairobi, Kenya

SAA doesn't fly to the USA? I thought they might fly something like JFK-Europe-Kenya, but you can already do that just get on BA then connect with another airline. I'm surprised there are no nonstop flights from the US to Johannesburg even though that is a long flight, but what isn't? SFO-SYD is a l...

Re: A380 flight

Doesn't SQ fly the A380? I know simairline.net doesn't have SQ, but I know another place that does and I won't say as I don't want to create a "this group is better than that group" because it isn't so if it is ok with Aaron then I will mention it (and no its not Singapore VA).

Re: Biofuel

fuel replacement is a great idea, and its needed. How we go about it is probably one of the most deciding factor. Hydrogen, Biofuel, etc. I'll bet airplanes could continue to use fossil fuels if all our ground transportation or at least 60-70% of it could use another form of energy such as hydrogen ...

Re: IC887 BOM-DEL

with the resolution being so high like that, it must be very hard to see those menus without making your DPI bigger. Higest I've seen for a 19" is 128x1024x32, I actualy should see what happens if I use x16 in Vista with FS9 if that makes any difference.

Re: Navigation rules, what is required at least in the USA?

If you are not following airways, you can go VOR to VOR (that is essentially what airways over land do anyway), or you can use GPS or RNAV to follow a series of waypoints that may or may not correspond to any land-based navaids or airways (this is what the daily NATs do). Or a combination of the tw...

Re: what do you use for taking screenshots?

Vista isn't all that bad as you all claim it to be. Sure Vista has its own set of problems, just like XP did when it first came out but I don't remember the issues being that severe in XP. UAC sure is a pita, but I like what UAC has to offer at times. I also found out the black screen when trying to...

If when flight planning you do not use airways, is it then most common to go VOR to VOR?


VORs or NDBs or if you have a GPS you can use intersections/Fixes

Re: Navigation rules, what is required at least in the USA?

So you're saying it is possible for ATC to give you clearance direct to your final destination/landing airport rather than a waypoint/fix? I noticed there are some GPS waypoints on an airway usually in between a set of VORs or NDBs on the airway along the way. When I first started flying in FS98 I h...

Re: what do you use for taking screenshots?

I should reiterate, there are a few of us using FS9, so those who are using FS9 since I use it.

And its true, I probably should just search AVSIM or flightsim.com for some screenie apps.

I get the idea its easier to plan their flights so ATC or whoever needs to know can see where they'll be going and it shortens the flight plan ro...
