    The selector will automatically switch at a predetermined time, regardless if the fuel cap is on or off. You might be surprised at how many people forget to replace the fuel caps after fueling. If it isn't the fuel cap, then check the integrity of the airfame through the maintenance manager. We've modelled wear and tear on the wing seams/joins, and fuel could be streaming out of the open/worn join (near the flap tracks).

    After owning the TBM since the release date, I finally found the time to do the ferry flight from Tarbes. Lots of pictures, with fair weather and lots of water to stare at for 18 hours of flight. A rundown of the flight in N910GE below, enjoy. Leg 1: The TBM factory in Tarbes, France (LFBT) to Prestwick, Scottsdale (EGPK) 30,000 feet above England/Scotland 30,000 feet above England/Scotland Descent into Prestwick, Scotland (EGPK) Descent into Prestwick, Scotland (EGPK) Turning final approach into Prestick On the ground in Prestwick Quick turnaround in Prestwick, only landed for fuel Leg 2: Prestwick, England (EGPK) to Reykjavik, Iceland (BIRK) Rocketing out of Prestwick, headed for Reykjavik, Iceland.

    Hello again. I'd like to give another update. During our investigation into updating our NavData to the XP1100 format, it became apparent that this must be the way to go for long-term future compatibility and more reliable route calculations, including holds, but would require a significant rewrite of the FMS base architecture to do so. So over the last 4 weeks, we have done exactly that. We now have the beginnings of a 2nd FMS running in parallel with... but independently of.... our original FMS. We are running 'newFMS' on CDU1 and 'oldFMS' on CDU2. We will NOT be simulating dual FMCs though. This old/new arrangement only exists so we can compare the new with the old while developing the new. It is much like building a new bridge alongside an old bridge...and when the new one is ready, we will remove the old. Much of the challenges we have faced with regards to drawing routes / vnav have been related to the limited nature of the navData format we have used since we began the project. Moving to a format which have been designed expressly for "navigation processing" will go a long way towards easing our algorithm development. The image below shows the two CDUs, both on the "IDENT" page, but clearly displaying differing data as they use differing algorithms/databases....and for those curious, the pilot CDU displays 'odd' formatting simply because we were testing our new display drawing code. We are very excited moving to this new XP1100 format. We have, in 4 weeks, accomplished what took us over 24 months to accomplish originally. Of course we have the benefit of experience, but the elegance and efficiency of the new navData format and architecture allow us to focus on the FMS functionality by orders of magnitude more than before. With the new infrastructure complete, we will begin working on the route editing. The current navData set only supports about 8 different waypoint types. Arcs are not supported, as is common in today's RNAV procedures, but the new format contains all path/terminator types typical in today's procedures. As usual, we thank you for any patience you have managed to muster as we work to improve the IXEG 733. P.S. Jan and myself will be at Flight Sim Expo in Orlando, FL/USA in a few weeks if anyone wants to talk shop. -Tom Kyler

    Wondering if Hot Start was working on another update for this beaut? is there a dev blog/forum anywhere to follow along with development?

    There is an update in progress. We don't really have a blog, but we have a discord group. https://discord.gg/YUJ4MU

    @Cameron I think you took my question a little too literally there. I wasn't asking "Is there news you had on this that you forgot to post?", I was asking "It's been a while since we've heard anything about these fairly large remaining bugs, is a fix forthcoming?". @Goran_M Ok, thanks. Glad it's still being worked on.

    No worries. Actually this a close to what is happening to the real aircraft when you starting it up.

    JGregory I did file a ticket on the 1st of August with X-Aviation as a matter of fact that is where I started with this process. I've included their response below. Cameron S. Thu, 08/01/19 3:17 pm Hello Charles, Thanks for writing in! All technical questions and bug reports related to the Saab 340 should be posted in the Leading Edge Simulation forums located here: http://forums.x-pilot.com/forums/forum/158-saab-340a/ This is the best way to get our developers' attention. They read and log each and every report and if necessary may contact you in private message to further diagnose and test builds on your machine. Best Regards, Cameron It actually appears that they believe this is the formal support channel for on sending me this reply they immediately closed the ticket as 'solved'. Consider this thread closed for I've uninstalled the aircraft. I certainly wouldn't want to waste anymore of my time engaged in conversation with anyone other than the formal support channel and it is clear you don't want to waste your time doing what mustn't be your job.

    Yeah, in most all SAAB 340 operations, the aircraft is rarely at a gate where it needs to be pushed back. When they flew regularly as commuter aircraft in the United States, most large airports had one or more terminals that were set up for boarding from ground level. In other words, the aircraft was parked sideways usually, and you, as a passenger, would just walk out a door on to the ramp, walk to the aircraft, and board. Take note of the 5m20s mark in the vido.....LOL. We need this modeled in V2. Also, take note of the white gloves in the cockpit, for increased visibility to the ground crew.

    Delta_Who Liveries | HotStart TBM900 - Blue Spring v1.0 | N900EH To Install -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. Simply place the folder "Delta Liveries - Blue Spring v1.0" into the liveries folder of your TBM900 Liveries folder 2. That's it...easy right? (Optional) I've included a fuselage option containing Grau Adler's FSE group logo. To apply, just replace the from the "Fuselage_Front.dds" texture from the "(Optional)" folder into your "objects" folder. NOTE : The registration is already pre-made, but you can use the existing registration editor to tailor the livery to your liking!

    Hi Mirlo, I"m doing a bit of "multi-threading" at the moment, bouncing around between the Moo, the IXEG and NASA work. That being said, I need some access to an MU2 to move forward with some more 3D and a owner about 1.5 hrs away have invited me to come see his, but I've been a bit busy preparing for SpX16 launch, which is in 2 weeks. Things get VERY hectic in the 6-8 weeks preceding a launch. BUT.....the good part.....I have NO more space missions on the calendar for 2019....and will be making arrnagments to meet this MU2 owner asap and get what I need and will then continue on with this guy. It hasn't all been on pause though, duing my coding efforts for the IXEG, I have written a great deal of code that will also go in to the MU2, to bring it to a point of "serious systems simulation" like the IXEG. I have been working on that nearly every day in the evenings....so we're moving right along and I am definitely ready for this SpaceX mission to end so I can really dig into this thing. TomK

    Thanks for your answer and it's nice to hear that the project is not dead! I wish you the best luck to finish this stunning work. It would be a shame if this project would not be completed! So this scenery would be a great enrichment for the whole XP11 add-on library. You have my full support and a day one purchase if it is availabe! cheers

    In the real aircraft there is no nosewheel steering at all without A hydraulics. I think the rudderpedals still working is a X-Plane limitation we did not code around. The rudder pedals still work the rudder, which will also steer, dependent on airspeed. You can still taxi without the nosewheel steering, just use differential braking - but it´s a PITA and I would not do it in real life, well maybe to vacate the runway on a high-speed turnoff. Jan
