    SAAB 340A - Air Canada Express

    Very nice, thanks!
  2. File Name: Saab 340A - Calm Air File Submitter: canox File Submitted: 22 May 2014 File Category: Heavy Metal X-Plane Version(s): X-Plane 10 Livery For: Click Here For Aircraft Hi! Here is my first custom livery for X-Plane. Calm Air International for the X-Aviation Saab 340A. I chose to paint this livery because its an airline close to home, and a fairly simple design to test my capabilities. (Painters note: I love the logo, hate the 'CalmAir' font) Presently, "All of Calmair's Saab 340s have been sold to other operators and are in the process of being replaced by ATR-42s and Dornier 328 Jets on scheduled passenger service routes." Fortunately we can still fly this simple/clean livery with our virtual Saab 340s. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calm_Air "Calm Air International LP is an airline based in Thompson, Manitoba, Canada. It operates services in northern Manitoba and the Kivalliq Region of Nunavut. Charter and freight services are also undertaken. Its main base is Thompson Airport" Calm Air operates services to the following communities: ManitobaChurchill (Churchill Airport) Flin Flon (Flin Flon Airport) Gillam (Gillam Airport) The Pas (The Pas Airport) Thompson (Thompson Airport) Winnipeg (Winnipeg James Armstrong Richardson International Airport) NunavutArviat (Arviat Airport) Baker Lake (Baker Lake Airport) Chesterfield Inlet (Chesterfield Inlet Airport) Coral Harbour, (Coral Harbour Airport) Rankin Inlet (Rankin Inlet Airport) Repulse Bay (Repulse Bay Airport) Whale Cove (Whale Cove Airport) Click here to download this file

    Unbelievable
  5. Hey man. I guess its all about setting up the FMS before you take off. Id still love to learn a big modern airliner. My cousin who got me into Xplane let me try the B777 on his setup, ended up in a nose dive.. those passenger screams will never leave me. For VoiceAttack.. it works exactly like a first officer. Im surprised at how easy this is to setup and how responsive the voice commands are. For the SAAB I have commands for air conditioning, auto coarsen, CTOT (I put the voice command as 'sea tow' lol.. you could try 'see toe'), prop sync, gears, flaps and AP disengage. I havnt even experimented with the macros.. Im sure theres a way I could say 'heading 320 degrees' and make the autopilot do it. Ill make a video for you to show how well it works. Edit: Ah Fraps keep crashing, dont know what is going on.
  6. Hey AJ glad to see youre still around. B772 is a big plane! Hows the switch to FMS flight planning? Ive been looking into using a program called VoiceAttack.. I wonder if it could work in X-Plane. From their site 'VoiceAttack will take commands you speak into your microphone and turn them into a series of keyboard key presses and mouse actions' For flying the SAAB with so many toggle switches.. just saying stuff like prop sync off or air condition on could decrease the workflow. About tweaking.. I dont think so man lol. Maybe if X-Plane had a 1000 man team like a Call of Duty game or something.. it could work out of the box without tweaking. Were in a niche minority of people who like to do interesting things. All the PC games I play are the same.. ArmA, X-Plane, Assetto Corsa. So much flexibility but lots of tweaking. Edit: I downloaded the trial (3 weeks free, 20 voice commands) and it works flawless. Just set up some basic commands like gears, flaps.. but its great. http://www.voiceattack.com/ Coming in on approach I just hit a toggle on my joystick.. say gears.. and my gears drop instantly. Its a co-pilot for $8 full version.. Ill see if I end up using it in the long run.
  7. Still flying the SAAB.. Been a few weeks but took her out for a spin around Lausanne..dicey approach but pulled a go around and 2nd try was on point Assetto Corsa racing simulator has been taking my time recently. Too much speed.. gotta hit the clear skies for some gentle flying. Roads? Where we're going.. we don't need roads.
  8. Hey Im still here too.. just busy as well. What kind of car did you buy? Thanks for the takeoff videos. I noticed your elevator trims are really high in the heavy weight takeoff (well compared to what I use). Im usually at the first white line at the bottom of the green arc. I found lower elevator trim helped me get more speed on the runway and a gentler rotation was required to keep speed on liftoff. I try not to pull back more than 10 degrees. I wonder what a 'normal' everyday weight setup in a SAAB 340 would be? How many passengers on avg. and how much fuel loaded per flight. Baggage weight limit. I like how this plane keeps you a rookie.. really need to set it up properly for different conditions. Help you learn a lot though.

    Yep, some good framerates for me in city areas too. Flying over Zurich with OSM and HD mesh.. no artifacts everything looks nice and running smooth. Andy10r which plane was giving you the problems?
  10. Bad experience today.. succumbed to hypoxia at 14,000 feet in the SAAB. Completely forgot how to set up the cabin pressure.. I had my landing alt set. AC was working fine. I thought it was supposed to take care of pressure automatically? My differential pressure was at 0.1 when I passed out... On a positive note I think I got my 'heavy' takeoffs on point. More flaps and a long runway is necessary it seems. When landing with heavy weight I find its also much easier to get a stable approach for landing set up. Any tips on anti-ice systems? I know I should put them on in colder weather and when in clouds.. what about very cold and dry weather? I was experimenting with the different anti-ice systems (prop, engine, surface de-icing) and was having a hard time figuring which was the best way to go about it. I was flying in -30C to- 40C weather in clear skies.

    No issues for me!
  13. Heh it was a graceful landing. SAAB swooped in, flapped its wings a bit then plopped right down
  14. Lol your first NZWN video it looks like youre landing a helicopter!
  15. Haha nice I like the gradient. The colour is just bleeding off because of the blistering speed of the SAAB 340 Alright post your experiences!
