Hi Farrokh,

thanks for your tip. Well, what I mean then is the "Quick Look" function.

"Quick Look" (video or PDF) randomly resets to starting point after some minutes.

I will change the thread subject from "Preview" to "Quick Look" ...


Cheers,

hi hardy -

i believe pressing the space bar only activates "quick look" and not the Preview app - double clicking on an image, pdf or video file, will open the associated app  (can be set in the info - Cmd+ i ) of course :)

i checked the actiivity monitor and preview app is not running when i press the space bar on a image or pdf - and the QuickLookUIService (Finder) shoots up in cpu %  -

sometimes, i have to clear the quick look cache in case the files don't show up when pressing the space bar, but i dont think that is related to your problem...

perhaps apple has changed the way quick look works, im still on Mojave 10.14.6

I hope i understood your post correctly,

cheers

Hangar 7 / Segmet Related Overcast
« Last post by Bluestar on Fri, 12 Aug 2022 17:55 »
I was flying from KAUS to SBKP.  During the flight at cruise altitude of FL290 and higher I noticed that the flight was in overcast weather.  I had noticed this earlier when the engine/wing de-ice were always on.  After checking I found the aircraft was in a Segmet area that covered a large portion of North and South America.   

I could not find any information on the Segmet the aircraft was flying through.  When I turned the Segmets off the Overcast went away.  Is this a real Segmet or related to the Planet weather?

The situation file is attached.

No disadvantage as they are always the same two files anyway, generated by Navburo.

Hi,

I purchased the NavDataPro - Single dataset today. Same here - the mentioned two files are missing.

After opening a ticket at Aerosofts support center, I got a fast reply (in german) meaning:

Quote
Unfortunately, the automatic integration of the NavDataPro data specifically for the AeroWinx Precision Simulator does not work at the moment. We are currently working on an update that will hopefully be available soon. Until then, we would like to ask you to copy the data manually: https://xxx

I used their download link - a zip file - but still the both files are missing. So the download is not really very helpful at all ...

Just to let you know ...

So, I opened a new ticket ... I'll keep you up to date!

Hardy: of course it works after copying the two files (abb.w & ms.w) ... is there any disadvantage when using this "old" files?

Cheers
Hans

Helicopters with piston engines, like most Robinsons. I know they're pretty reliable, but helicopters with turbine engines feel safer than helicopters with piston engines.

I flew TH-55s and OH-13Ts when in Army flight school back in 1969.  They were fine, both had the same Lycoming engines.  That being said there is no way I would fly on a helicopter with a low inertia rotor system.

Aerosoft NavDataPro data update 2208 is out and it is still missing two files (abb.w and ms.w). When I copied both files from 2206 data set  PSX was able to detect the new version. abb.w contains the list of abbreviations, not sure about ms.w purpose, but in contains string "Made by Aerosoft (with Navburo 12)". So finger trouble in Aerosoft seems to continue.

With piston in particular or engines in general?

Helicopters with piston engines, like most Robinsons. I know they're pretty reliable, but helicopters with turbine engines feel safer than helicopters with piston engines.

However, that said, the leading cause of helicopter crashes seems to be spatial disorientation after flying into clouds, or human error, like the time when the drunk passenger on a sight-seeing flight pulled the fuel shutoff lever and crashed the helicopter into the East River off New York. So maybe the type of engine is less determinative than it feels.

the drift to the right is to avoid the building in front and thereafter he turns to the right to be clear of the powerlines. I think the wind gust is from the downwash of the helicopter.

What's the pilot going to do if he experiences a tail rotor failure or an engine failure, besides roll it up in a ball?
