PMDG 747-400 in TWA Colors
« on: January 01, 2016, 07:25:13 PM »
A pricey and complex piece of payware, but nonetheless a very accurate and nice flying, totally automated airplane. I have learned a lot about using an FMC, VNAV profiles and general appreciation for modern avionics with this airplane.


Sydney to Auckland at 37,000 ft, 0.836 IMN (479 KTAS) at 21,000 pph fuel flow, 568K gross weight, all optimized per the FMC.



VC cockpit is excellent; this is a far back, wide angle view. Pilot can move in much closer to actually have a clear view of all necessary instruments and controls. I have done a considerable amount of refining to the cockpit camera views to achieve smooth panning and useful views for important operations.

Spectacular !  So easy to see how the "Queen of the Skies" tag fits so well. :D

Kudos for tacklin' the FMC .... those things can be intimidating and scary. :o  I swear I had one speak with the voice of HAL from  2001: A Space Odyssey and proclaim, "I can't do that, Dave."
