Peter-

Now you've got me scratching my head... you mean there are procedures OTHER than the ones in the BA FCOM? Can't be mate- there's something inherently not quite right with that train of thought ;) Surely BA will suffice for the masses... phuleeeeeezzzzzz!

Ok - the main problem is that there are many different SOPs for these phases, but I will try to do some with basic Boeing procedures.

New video uploaded - Audio Control Panels
(Just a quick "rough" one for those who are a little confused, and a couple of extra tips..)

I forgot to mention SELCAL - sorry..

Peter, your good timing at the end shows you're a good actor too, hehe :-)

:mrgreen: Thanks for the vid Peter nice ending! Sounds like you're getting more than drinks! Glad you take the time to make these I watch them often.

For any of you practising engine out take-offs - a misleading instruction in the video - you don't need to have the rudder in trim to engage the autopilot on the engine-out climb. (I was having a "brain shrink"..)

So the procedure is:-

250 ft MIN - engage an autopilot
Then trim the rudder...
etc

Sorry about that - I will endeavour to amend the video soon..

Cheers,

I think it may be considered unprofessional now but lots of flight crew would answer the cabin call with 'Hello, Staff Travel?"

New video uploaded...

"Single Engine Failure on Take-off DEMO"
(This is using the new 10.0.5 BETA 6...)

On the video, the inference is that the rudder trim should be completed before actioning the memory items. This is me reverting to multi-crew habits, I'm afraid.
In a multi-crew environment the HP would call for the appropriate memory items as soon as possible after 400 feet, and then trim the rudder while they were being done by the other pilot, so in the video I got things slightly in the wrong order from the single-crew perspective.

For single-crew operation it would be better to keep the rudder pressure applied manually while shutting down the engine, and then trimming the rudder..

Sorry about any confusion..

Peter,

thx for the updated video, where the enhancements in sideslip included in the latest version have contributed to an ever better, I guess more realistic response from the aircraft and handling from the pilot.

Your note on the subtleties of it being performed by a single pilot bring an idea, which is not at all new, and exists for other simulators like P3D, FSX and now X-Plane too... a virtual co-pilot adding CRM to the simulated cockpit...

I wonder if such an add-on could be designed / implemented for PSX. The default options for actions from the first officer are already nice to have, but having a robot simulating the 1st officer would be nice, going through the checklists, setting systems, and even cooperating in the decision process when events like significant weather or failures occur....

I confess I never had such a program for FSX, something in the line of "FS2Crew" or "MCE" now also available for X-Plane 10 ( if I'm not wrong... ), but I would probably invest in one for PSX :-)

The sideslip tuning in the latest version does not affect the existing engine-out behaviour. It just affects cross-controlled rudders and ailerons in symmetric thrust conditions.

Ah, Ok Hardy, although I guess it ends up affecting engine out as well, because of the induced yaw and resulting roll moment due to yaw and the resulting momentary sideslip when the engine fails, plus the one that results from the pilot inputs to compensate...

0.5.0013. Slip-induced roll rate increased.

... even if it wasn't started by cross-control inputs under a symmetric thrust state...

Basically, I am now having to use more yoke to counter yaw-induced roll, more yoke to counter an opposite rudder application during sideslip, and that, combined with:

0.5.0014. For cross-controlled rudder/aileron: Yaw rate reduced, drag increased.

results in a different, I believe more plausible overall behavior whenever there is asymmetric thrust...

Tutorial 1 - Changing ILS rwy during approach: Comment on situ set up


I originally had problems with the procedure outlined in Tutorial 1 - I couldn't get the new runway to autotune the new ILS freq. Found that the initial rwy ILS freq in the Nav Radio page was manually tuned and stayed locked to that ILS even with the new rwy ILS set in the DEP ARR page. This was due to my setting up the scenario by using Hardy's transporter on the Position page in the Instructor's Station - I had set up a short final for 27L and then hit the Set FMC/ILS button, which apparently sets the ILS frequ manually.

When I changed my situ to set up some distance out from EGLL and intercepted the 27 L ILS normally the initial runway ILS freq then autotuned and then the shift to the 27R runway worked as shown in the tutorial.

I assume this is correct behavior for the system - i.e. if you have entered the ILS for a runway manually it won't autotune a new freq and you can't change the ILS unless you manually enter a new freq.

Great tutorials - I've finally got some time to go through them systematically and am picking up a lot of new information.

Thanks

Yes, correct, manual tuning inhibits autotuning.

You need to manually delete the freq to enable autotuning again. But this is possible only if loc/gs are not active. Otherwise you need to recycle f/d to leave the approach mode, if I recall the manuals.

Just to say I haven't forgotten my "promise" to do cold and dark videos - we are planning to use Gary Oliver's sim (used for Simfestuk) for that, with in-cockpit cam.
It might take us a week or three to get it done, though. I'll try and do a 2-eng inop in the meantime..

Sounds brilliant!

Your contributions to my understanding (and I am sure most others) of 744 operations is hugely appreciated. Knowing the sequence of standard flows is one thing, understanding the subtleties and foundations of rote procedure, while gaining confidence to handle non-normal operational requirements, is quite something else.

Thank-you Peter, your videos scythe through the drawn curtains of operational knowledge, parting them for all who thirst to know.

By popular demand - two videos uploaded! These are a little different to my previous offerings...

Pre-Flight procedures from Cold and Dark through to Take-Off, Parts 1 and 2

My thanks to Gary (Mavis) Oliver in particular for letting us film in his fantastic 747 sim for these two videos.

Home cockpit builders - watch and weep!

Enjoy..

Thanks to Britjet and Gary!

Once again, the videos are a treasure trove of information. I'm already out of tears though -- that is because I was weeping the whole time during the latest Simfest Event! :D ;)

By the way, it looks like part 1 is not public and part 2 is public. Why not make both public on YouTube?

Weep ? Noooooo.
Oh wait what is this ? Oh crap. It's a tear...
Thanks again for all your efforts Peter. This type of operational knowledge is extremely valuable as it is really hard to find.
And Gary's cockpit is f**king awesome ! My bad, I meant bloody... :roll:
