  1. POLL: VNAV use

    I suspect the trends have shifted slightly since 1997, especially in the US as more and more "Optimized Profile Descent" (OPD) STARs are becoming the norm. These newer procedures have specific block altitude and speed restrictions on multiple successive fixes and can't be flown without at least some sort of advisory VNAV at minimum generating a descent path that complies with the restrictions.
  2. Had someone already claimed the jump seat?!
  3. Liveries request

    Arizona One is on my list. I should have it ready sometime early September once I'm back from vacation.

    I'll get to it!

    This is N352SW, c/n 24888, a 737-3H4 which first flew Oct 17, 1990 and was delivered to SWA Nov 6, 1990. Southwest introduced its second special livery, Lone Star One, in celebration of the airline’s 20th anniversary. This 737-3H4 was painted with the Texas state flag as a tribute to the airline’s home state and the ten Texas cities it serves. Ship 352 wore the carrier's original "Desert Gold" tail until July 2003, when it was repainted with a tail representative of the "Canyon Blue" colors. Lone Star One was retrofitted with winglets in mid-2010, and was retired from service on May 17, 2016. The livery is slated to be repainted onto a 737-700 later this year. To install, unzip into the "Liveries" folder.

    In the US the AIM now recommends a transponders ON/ALT while on all movement areas, ASDE-X or not.

    Welcome to the first in a series of Southwest 737-300 repaints for the excellent IXEG 737 Classic! This is N622SW, c/n 27932, a 737-3H4 which first flew Mar 12, 1996 and was delivered to SWA Mar 20, 1996. Ship 622 was originally painted in the carrier's original "Desert Gold" livery and repainted into "Canyon Blue" colors in early 2006. She received retrofit winglets in early 2008, which are reflected on this repaint. As yet this aircraft has not received Southwest's new "Heart" livery. To install, unzip into the "Liveries" folder.

  11. I may be very interested in this if the dates line up!
  12. Indeed! We see this all too often on VATSIM where pilots will blindly "plug and chug" into their FMCs without correlating the FMS data to the charts. One of the biggest things we do in a crew environment is cross-check the FMS entered flight plan with the planned or cleared route, and then also re-verify any SID/STAR restrictions or approach restrictions with the plate. Here's the EDBC ILS in question, as others have posted, you can see that the altitude at the OM fix is actually 1930'.
  13. Yeah the NG FMS/Avionics stick a 'DECEL' on the route line where it anticipates the VNAV will need to slow for a lower speed planned at a subsequent fix.
  14. That being said, as an 8-year VATSIM ATC veteran, I don't think I've EVER given an unpublished (i.e. Not retrievable via database) hold on VATSIM, event or not, that a pilot didn't specifically request for training purposes. The dirty secret is that for as much as pilots dislike random holding, controllers (both real and virtual), equally hate issuing it since it creates issues with protecting random chunks of sky from penetration by other air traffic.
