Re: An-148 down

One wonders what might have happened if the airspeed disagreement warning (assuming it's on a video screen or something and thus changeable) had "CHK PITOT HEAT" appended to it. Concur. Also, in the realm of 'outsider advice' why in the hell is there even an off switch? I guess it's a good idea on ...

Re: CFIT & Technology. 2/2015

That crash was 20 years ago, so I'm not really sure what moving map technology was available at the time. Today, however, there's no excuse for a lack of such things in commercial transport aircraft.

Re: Ban All Smart Phones!!!!!

This idiot would have found a different way to crash if he wasn't taking selfies (I hate that term). As I've heard so many times, you just can't fix stupid. Just a shame he had to take someone with him.

Re: Back in the saddle

My yoke, pedals and throttle quad are all in my man cave. My wife rarely ventures in there and with good reason, it's a mess. I got really burned out on FS for a while, but I'm really getting back into it now. I bought ActiveSky Next for FSX and it handles the weather nicely. I still use FS9 as well...

Back in the saddle

Anyone else here still flight simming? I just started getting back into it recently and am finally learning how to fly the PMDG 737 I bought for FS9 so many years ago.

Re: cockpit view of MD11 go around at JFK due to runway traffic

No idea, really, but I thought it was a signal that they had reached, or were within a certain number of feet from reaching their dialed in altitude.

Re: Hackers 'destroy' flight sim site

Looks like they're doing a good job of getting Avsim back online. The main page and forums are back and they're working on the library system. I guess they think they can recover about 90% of the files from the library, which is pretty good I'd say.
