    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

    VNAV

    couldn't have been active because otherwise BOD and not TOD would have been shown
  11. jakobeng1303

    VNAV

    it was armed
  12. jakobeng1303

    VNAV

    so I take it, any kind of TOD/BOD indicator is missing

    Hot start and flooded engine [PROCEDURE]

    thanks! Will try the next time my sim crashes and I end up with a flooded engine
  14. Does anybody know the procedures for a hot start and a flooded engine?

    VNAV

    As you can see form those pictures, I have an active VNAV path that is less than 5 minutes from being activated, yet I don't see any TOD indication. VNAV intercept worked fine
