    Current status of this plane?

    Much has been written over the last couple of years in the forums about the model, so my experience is too narrow to give you a good feel for it. I suggest that you read or search the forums for specifics. As for the VNAV issues, changing the FMC in flight to recalculate top of descent, for example if you are given an unexpected approach by ATC, I find often forces me to disconnect the AP and descend manually, probably not an issue for real pilots, but awkward for me. I tend to avoid changing anything on the FMC in flight, which is quite unrealistic I would think.

    Current status of this plane?

    It works well in the current version of XP. As with all aircraft there are things that can be done to make them look and work better, but if you just want to enjoy a high quality flying experience with XP, then this is the model in my opinion. I would like to see the FMC fully functional as I find it can cause problems if adjusted in flight, particularly VNAV, but I usually work around those problems. Progress on updates is agonisingly slow unfortunately, but the developers are working on it and have advised that they will keep it going as XP is developed further. I know it is expensive, but you get what you pay for. I would recommend that you buy it sooner rather than later. Cheers

    Update progress

    OK, thanks for the reply Cameron. If future releases of XP break something in the B733, will you be fixing that so we can still fly?

    Hi Test1234. If you are talking about transparency, and it sounds like you are, I am not sure how IXEG could be more transparent. They acknowledge problems that they are working on and answer most enquiries very quickly in the forums. If you are talking about the slow progress, then you need to understand that this aircraft is a VERY complex machine in terms of coding. They seem determined to get it 100% right, and for that I am grateful. I can wait. Just check out the comments that confirm that the IXEG B737 is a "work of art", despite the current status of low priority work such as cabin textures for example. This is by far my best XP aircraft even though it has developmental requirements. But, it will get even better. Patience.

    ixeg-737v1.2 flight idle

    Just wondering whether you inadvertently mapped TOGA to a button also mapped to A/T OFF or FD OFF. Perhaps try landing manually from 200 feet without turning off A/T or FD, just the A/P. I think (not sure) that A/T should switch off automatically just after nose wheel down, and FD can be turned off after leaving runway. Just a thought.

    Looking great
  10. All seems good on Mac. Successful Flight YBBN to YSSY. FPS no improvement on my machine, perhaps even a bit worse. No complaints though. Thanks

    Auto speed bug ?

    I wish someone would turn off autobrakes, wing lights, strobe, window heat, pitot heat, weather radar, engine start switches and flight directors whilst I am enjoying taxiing to the terminal. But alas, I too am alone in the cockpit.

    AIRARC update with navigraph

    You need to manually map the B737 folder in the Navigraph FMS Data Manager application. Of course, you also need a subscription to Navigraph.

    How to get an solid overcast for IFR?

    Thanks for raising this Amirello. This is not a high priority for me, but it has bugged me for some time. Lots of settings experiments and I cannot seem to get the conditions I am looking for. Probably my ignorance, but can anyone help Amirello and I get a solid overcast for an instrument landing?

    Terrific news, even though I will have to wait a bit. This is a great app. Well done
