It's part of the Simfest suite of programmes

Bear in mind that these are written for in house use so there is little to no support!

Hi all,

New video uploaded - VNAV Climb and Cruise modes

The one after this will be VNAV Descent and Approach modes, and then I think there will be enough background to look at Non-Precision approaches in some detail..

Cheers,

Thanks again Peter for the additional tutorial videos you have posted.

I have just caught up with the VNAV climb and descent videos and have learnt so much that would have taken me ages to glean from the manuals. In climb and descent I was mainly using FLCH and VS and was not really getting to grips with the complexities of VNAV due to my lack of understanding. I am now also understanding further the power of the FMC in relation to VNAV.

I today followed a link from another forum to some video tutorials (for a different aircraft) but priced at nearly $30. I have in the past seen commercial videos for another 747 product but have to say your style, quality and experience is superior to what I have observed in these products .

I am grateful to you for posting the links to your videos free of charge, it adds so much to the enjoyment of Hardy's exceptional piece of work.

I am truly amazed with the high quality free addons that have become available and developed for PSX. I revisited your early video that made reference to BACARS which is a great addition from Gary. My family take great delight in taking the fun out of me when I watch the simfestuk videos and recently when I purchased a serial receipt printer just for BACARS.

Looking forward to the next video installment whatever it is.

Thanks very much, Graham for those kind words, and I know that Gary and the others enjoy making the Simfest videos which would not be happening if not for Gary's excellent sim.

I have to say that I have been very pleasantly surprised by the feedback - particularly for an "old codger" like me!

More videos very soon..(the Missus is away this week so I might go into a frenzy!)

Thanks again,

Peter

Lucky guy! Thanks again Peter I've been watching the VNAV vids a few times now. The tips were very helpful because VNAV seems to have a mind of its own sometimes. I need to manage my descents better and these vids are excellent. If I lived closer I'd buy you a beer to celebrate your "freedom!" An idea for your next video "tips on how to live the bachelor life." Enjoy!

Nice videos Peter !
Can we download your SITU files somewhere ? So we can practice while watching the videos ?

Hi Stephane

A good idea, and I will look into that - but I actually finish up with quite a few "quick saves" at various points so it quickly becomes a bit of a mess!

The next one will be the Approach phase - I will try and get a suitable starter situ saved and posted..

Hi Britjet

I have just had a look at your VDOs and it is really well done. Good job.
Were you TRE / TRI on British Airways?

You are too kind - but keep it up...
I think they will survive without me somehow (at least, that's what they said LOL)

I am aiming to post the two videos on non-ILS approaches later this week..

Hi Hans

Thanks for the comments..

I have been asked before, and if you don't mind, I would prefer that the access to them stays within the confines of this forum?
If possible I would like to keep them more or less "Property of PSX", so a link to the PSX forum would be fine..
(I know it is easy to just "cut and paste" the links, and I appreciate you asking).

Thanks

Peter
