I have been hesitant to post a link to my website because Peter (Britjet) did such a professional job on his videos that it set the bar very high! These aren't the same quality, but maybe you guys will gain some benefit from watching them.

Just wow... I can't imagine how many hours you invested in this effort. Looks awesome, thanks a lot !
Thanks. By the way, the Engine Failure After Takeoff video may be a bit busy because I was doing the PNF duties as well, so there is no delineation between who is doing what. Sorry, I didn't have an FO to help me. The picture I posted on the page is what some instructors refer to as "The Dance," because it's so scripted in the sim. Actually, from the three-engine approach, you do a missed approach and then they fail a second engine at 1000' and you finish your ride with a two-engine visual approach and landing. I didn't do the missed approach because I wanted to keep it under 15 minutes. Here's the checklist I used for the Engine Severe Damage.
thanks a lot for the videos
What a nice collection of tutorials! :-)
Thank you, Jon!
Can I move this thread to the Tutorial section?
P.S.: I have a question on "VNAV Approach Part 1" ...
As we know, when engaging VNAV -- https://youtu.be/Tiw56Lcu-y8?t=590 -- the SPD bug jumps up, and you quickly reopen the MCP SPD window and turn the bug back down. To prevent this jump, is it allowed to set the A/T ARM switch to OFF before engaging VNAV, and then back to ARM after the bug is reset? Another trick which I learned from Peter is to set the FMC SEL SPD to your desired bug speed before engaging VNAV. Do some airlines not allow these tricks?
Thanks, Hardy. If you think they are worthy to post on the Tutorial page it would be an honor.
As for the VNAV question, I think Peter's technique is the one most used. In fact, I can't remember but I think I might have covered inserting the speed on the LEGS page, or VNAV page, under one of the other VNAV videos. I have never seen anyone disarming the A/T toggle switch for this, but I guess you could. I know when you hand fly in the terminal area, you can disengage the A/T at the yoke but, as you know, every time the PNF sets in a lower altitude and presses FLCH or VNAV (altitude intervenes) the A/T will re-engage. One way to stop this annoyance is to disarm them at the MCP.
Very nice Jon!
Great job Jon thanks very much for your efforts!
I shall study them in depth, and there's enough to keep me busy for quite a while!
Greatly appreciated- Ta!
PS- I've been working through these nuggets- brilliant stuff. The explanations of "why" VNAV does what I know it does has allowed me to understand rather than accept. I shall view these over and over! If you have time to discuss the fuel system in toto from Stab Full to 12T it would be great.... Ta Jon- SIMPLY FANTASTIC!
Thanks for posting, Jon!
Thank you Jon nice work! I just watched the engine out vid and will be watching the rest. I like your setup. Thanks again.
Thanks for the tutorials - they complement other tutorial material very nicely!
I just posted a new video based on a revision Hardy recently made regarding airway intercepts. Here's the video https://youtu.be/RQ1Ymm64AyU
And here's the situ if you want to load it up and give it a go:
Thank you, Jon.
(I hear you now used a lot less off that denoiser tool :-) Your voice sounds very clear now.)
Thanks, Hardy. I don't know what happened to change it. I had to reload Open Broadcaster Software so maybe the default mic settings are better. I think I need a better mic. I'm using a cheap, Radio Shack tie-clip mic.
I think the mic is OK. In the previous videos there is a very intensive "underwater" effect. This comes from the digital denoiser, not from the mic.
thanks for sharing your knowledge!
Well done - I like it! :D
Just added another video. This is for using VNAV/LNAV for a 2-engine approach.
Here's another short video I just did on the engine-out escape maneuver for RW07R at HKG. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYIimrFMTKA
Your HKG video is brilliant- got me thinking of all sorts of uses for Discos and E/o RTEs.... Loved learning how to go PBD off a created (PBD) WP.... excellent!
Jolly golden stuff ..
Thanks. I just added another video on speed intervention during a VNAV descent.
Great stuff, Jon
Question on the VHHH engine out escape tutorial:
When I set up a VHHH take off situ to work with this scenario I got the end result to come out pretty much as in your video, but noticed that the first PBD entry I added got labeled SMT01 on the FMC instead of SMT02 in your demo. Overall route result was the same except for numbering difference. I did start with a different RT1 in the FMC, but everything else was pretty much as in your video. I seem to remember discussions in earlier posts about numbering of PBD waypoints being quirky depending on the FMC programming, but haven't checked the Bulfer notes on this lately.
At any rate, it was very instructive.
in the real FMC and in PSX there is an internal counter for this purpose that is reset on flight completion. Every entry that requires a waypoint sequence number will increase that counter, no matter whether it's RTE 1 or 2, and no matter where in the route the entry is made. Sequence number 00 is used for any PBD or PBPB entry on the PROGRESS 1/3 page in 4L.
Just for reference (not an "RTFM"): Page 385.
Ah - that's the sort of thing I remembered (sort of). I'd hate to get this as a oral question on an exam!
The complete answer is that Jon (in 99.99% probability) created a waypoint named SMT01, deleted it and created a new waypoint and this time it received the next counter (2) and became SMT02.
The counter is 01-49 for RTE 1 and 51-99 for RTE 2.
QuoteThe complete answer is that Jon (in 99.99% probability) created a waypoint named SMT01, deleted it and created a new waypoint and this time it received the next counter (2) and became SMT02.
99.99999% probability this is what happened.
[ADDENDUM]: Just added another video. Thanks again, Hardy.
What Speed Will Appear in the Window?
Jon thanks for another excellent video. Btw I like your setup. Nice!
Many thanks for posting your video links very much appreciated. For some reason these had passed me by and I only found and started watching them today.
I personally like the the way you pause the video and explain what is happening. A lot of time and effort must have gone into producing the final material so thank you for your efforts.
All the best.
Thanks, guys. I start off with a script, but it ends up in the trash by the time it's over, so it's teleprompter-free. That's probably why it's not as succinct as it could be. Cheers.
Manual Engine Starts on CF6-80 engine. https://youtu.be/hhM4KcxKxUM
thanks for this interesting video!
I will receive my genuine 747-400 overhead the next few days - my setup has no Autostart switch - good timing ;)
You're not wrong about the speed of the start on the CF6 :) It's easy to lose track of what is going on if you don't practise the this procedure.
Speaking of that, I did a new video, this time on hot starts. I decided to do it in real time instead of half speed. It happens faster than I can talk about it. https://youtu.be/DRDnXm3Y6Jg
I think we discussed the starter duty limits on another forum a while back and came to the conclusion that Boeing's published figures varied a bit based on whether they were for use by mechanics versus pilots.
Thanks, Jon. There probably isn't a chance of a "differences course" for the RR engines, is there? ;-)
That would probably be for the guy on the other side of the Atlantic. Sorry, I don't know anything about the RR, but there are only so many ways to skin a cat.
Very nice work, and setup!
Thanks Jon. Really great videos.
A bit late, but thank you Jon for these nice videos
Thanks. Those were made so long ago that I don't even remember making them. Being on the 767 for three years makes it seem even longer.
I'm still going through all of it cautiously, trying to learn each and every bit, mostly energized by the very didactic way they were created but also the ENERGY brought by the NG FMC update HH brought to live recently.
Probably some of those videos could be updated to the NG logic / features, but that would certainly mean a LOT of work...
Just wanted to say thanks again for making these... with the arrival of the NG FMC has come a mew enthusiasm for VNAV approaches, so your two videos on that topic are especially welcome!
One question, Jon... On your second VNAV approach video, you showed a demo where you extended from the runway threshold fix, and mentioned (at 10:49) that a good time to turn base was when the vertical path deviation scale showed the aircraft being 1000 below the profile. And on your demo, you had the sim paused for a while with the vertical deviation showing 1540 feet below the profile.
I tried that on a downwind leg on a return-to-land circuit, initially with the downwind leg on HDG SEL. The FMC showed me NOT ON INTERCEPT HDG, which I understand, but the vertical deviation scale was missing. So I couldn't use it to determine when to turn base. It wasn't until I was already established on base that LNAV showed me the vertical path scale and pointer. Did I set it up wrong?
When the vertical deviation scale is not displayed, you are in ACT CLB or ACT CRZ. I guess you were at or above your new CRZ ALT.
Aha. Thanks, Hardy, you were right. I flew the circuit again, making sure I was in ACT DES at the right time, and the vertical deviation scale was right where it should have been.
BTW, that 1000' under rule-of-thumb came from an Atlas sim instructor.
Brilliant stuff. Thank you!
Just come back to PSX after a couple of years away. Thanks for these videos; much to digest!
First of all, thank you very much for making and sharing these videos!
While scrolling through your list and watching some videos of yours, I noticed that several are set as "private" by youtube and hence cannot be watched.
Is that on purpose? Is there another way to view them?
Here is the list of the ones I found to be private:
- HKG EO escape
- Airway to exit point (original)
- FLCH trap
- Alt intv
- T/O Stall
- VNAV APP 2
- NAT course reversal
- V1 cut JFK
- North pole
- REF N1
Recently, Youtube turned all unlisted videos into private for some reason. I thought I had changed them back, but I guess some of them weren't changed. I'll see what I can do. Thanks!
Okay, they should all be available now. Please let me know if they're not.
I can see all of your vdos, thanks
Thank you very much, I can also see them all now.
Thank you for producing these videos.
Is there an option for me to buy all these videos strictly for personal use? Sometime ago, the videos created by emerydc8 were in my playlist on Youtube and got wiped out. At that point, I wanted to have these videos for offline viewing reference.
For an enthusiast like me, these videos are very valuable.
I don't know if I even have these video files anymore, other than those I uploaded to Youtube, and those should be available on page 1. Don't they make a software program or app to save them to your computer from Youtube?
N.B.: Britjet's videos are much better if you're going to study anything.
My experience is so long as I am signed into to Chrome, then I get a download option on YouTube. However, download is no more than 720p even is 1080 is available.
Alternatively with the owners permission you could look to see if some screenrecording software would do what you need?
@emerydc8 and CarlBB, I was trying to own a clean copy that the creator would approve off. Thank you both for your responses.
