  1. Cruise bank angle

    Thank you, not that it matters that much, still a beauty to fly!
  2. Cruise bank angle

    Hi there. At cruising altitude, does the real plane use 30 degrees bank during turns (using LNAV)? I feel that the turns are maybe a bit too tight? But then again, I haven't been in the real cockpit during flight, but from the "wing view" it seems that the real plane use less bank. Anyone have any thoughts/answers regarding this? Thank you.
  3. Approach/Landing Procedures

    Thanks guys. Will do some reading and watching.
  4. Hi everybody! I was wondering, how do you guys fly your approach? Do you follow the STARs all the time (Every approach)? When do you lower the gear and flaps? I'm still trying to figure out a "standard", as my approach procedures are a bit random from time to time. Usually I lower the flaps to 15 and gear out at approximately 2500 ft above the field (Or at the radio altimeter call out). After that I just slowly slow down to a speed I feel flaps 30(40) should be lowered, then slow to landing speed. But the same goes to flaps 1 and 5. When do you lower them? Towards the Final Approach Fix / Downwind & Base? I'm still learning and hope to get some good replies.
  5. Hi Just wondering, at what N2% is it normal to turn the anti collision lights off after shutdown? (Read somewhere around 15%, correct?) Also, is there still a chance that ground personnel could get sucked in moments after shutdown? Reason I'm asking is because, I've seen personnel walk only a few feet away from the engine after shutdown, and for me it doesn't seem that safe since it's still rotating quite fast. Don't know how much "suction" it creates once no fuel is powering it. Thanks
  6. Bleed air

    Well, I would guess. An easier way to explain it, is that; if the 5th stage can't deliver enough bleed air, then the 9th stage opens, to help.
  7. Hi "On ground, or in flight with the flaps not up, the ram door will move to the full open position for maximum cooling. The RAM DOOR FULL OPEN Light illuminates whenever the ram door is fully open". So that light is nothing to worry about And the sound (which I guess is a ding (like from when switching the Seat belt sign on or off)) is probably just from the plane "switching" it self on, but don't know why.
  8. Custom Waypoint

    Ahh, sorry, forgot to check the most obvious place! But thanks!
  9. Hi. Will we be able to add custom waypoints in the FMC sometime? Or is this not featured in the real 737 CL Example: ROKIM360/05 (Where ROKIM is the waypoint, 360 is bearing, and 05 is distance)? Or: RW06L/+2 Thanks!
  10. Hi Does anyone know where I could get a hold of the FCOMs for the 737 classic? Trying to do some failures (Unreliable Airspeed and such) and it would really help to know pitch and N1 at different altitudes/weights, and so on. Also good reading material for when I'm bored. Thanks in advance!
