    Automatically sequence from the end of a STAR to the approach?

    the approach is not connected to the STAR which is paticularly annoying in Europe, where the G1000 considers the transition part of the approach and not the STAR. It makes sense from a procedural point of view but overall it's problematic. For example look at LOWW. Arrive via VENEN (VENEN2W arrival), FL170 at MASUR and after NERDU transition

    TBM 900 v1.1.7 Update Released!

    Thanks for the great work! I will hopefully be able to try it tonight!

    World Tour using TBM 900

    "World tour" flies exclusively in Northamerica lol

    Direct on approach doesn't work

    thanks! That's unfortunate

    Direct on approach doesn't work

    Since the new update I was finally able to fly again (thanks again!!!). Since then I flew 3 legs with one going to EDDM and one going to EDDH from LOWW. In both I gave myself a direct onto the final however the airplane started to fly direct to the airport. The directs were part of the approach procedure that I loaded in with the G1000 and AFAIK I didn't activate the app before. Long story short, instead of flying direct to the Fix, the NAV points direct to the destination.

    Little preview

    I'm so looking forward to this!

    Adding G1000 Obstacles

    I've so far only flown in Europe thus was never able to test the obstacle feature in the G1000. It is my understanding, that they only show in the US because they are free of charge. Today Austrocontrol, Austria's (ICAO LOxx / OE-) ANSP, released .kmz files for LOWW, LOWS and LOWG for free via this link: https://bit.ly/2Eto1w3 (sorry, I had to shorten it and it's only in German). It does say in the disclaimer that commercial usage is forbidden but what I'm wondering is, whether it's possible for the individual to add obstacles from a file like .kmz privately and thus not violate the terms and agreements.

    Descent tips

    To use other methods shows awareness for the situation! If there is a long RNAV transition and you follow only your VNAV path, you'll end up flying +40nm more than if you gave ATC the possibility of shortening your route with a direct or vector

    Low FPS on initial loading

    actually I just reinstalled XP and on the first start, the TBM behaved normally. I closed XP again to retry and voila, I was back to 2-4 frames in the cockpit. Other aircraft worked perfectly fine so it can't be the scenery or a plugin (disregarding any possible direct connection: TBM - any plugin)

    Low FPS on initial loading

    It happens to me as well!

    Descent tips

    Normally I combine both. I set myself a reference waypoint to which I would descend with VNAV and after that use FLCH mostly. I love to fly shortcuts so that is important to take into account, as it means that I have to be lower than if I would fly the whole transition from the STAR to the RWY. Example LOWS LOWW RTE: NEMAL NEMAL1W NEMAL1W has a FL170b restriction at BARUG and after that I would continue with a direct onto any of the transitions. If I get a vector, FLCH is a must. DCT FAF (or close) favours VNAV imo.

    Bounces too easily?

    happened to me as well but I feel like I now got a better feeling for it. I'm right now flying a B767 heavy on a 12h trip to FACT and it feels so different tomorrows landing in the TBM won't be nice

    Bounces too easily?

    With a speed of max 85 knots approach speed bouncing doesn’t last long

    Entering Altitude Restrictions

    any or above/below options?

    Hot start and flooded engine [PROCEDURE]

    thanks! Didn't know that
