  1. Roger that. I'll sit tight in the mean time, then.
  2. On XP11, it appears that ground services aren't always available. As soon as cold-and-dark sim starts, the 737 starts slowly rolling. The location doesn't have external power available, and I don't want to start the APU yet. I turn the battery on, and the electric hyd pumps don't start, so I assume they need AC power? At any rate, I establish AC using standby power ON, and the elec hydro pumps still don't work, so perhaps they don't run off the standby bus? What busses are they powered from and how can I prevent my plane from rolling?
  3. Thank you for the link to the thread with the documents. I guess the problem I had, is it wasn't obvious to me that the short turnaround checklist had to be completed in addition to the long turnaround checklist if, and only if starting from cold & dark. Now that I know the short turnaround list needs to be completed after FMC during cold and dark startups, I won't make that mistake. On a slightly related note, It appears that you're doing engine starts after pushback, before taxi. This obviously requires the use of the APU. Realistically, how often does that really happen? I was under the impression that in real life, the APU is often broken and/or the airline is being cheap and requiring pilots to start one engine at the gate using the ground services, and then taxi on that engine and start the second engine during the pre-takeoff checklist (after taxi, before entering the runway). What is your impressions or others' impressions about the typical flow of events in real life? Did I get a false impression? Finally, Thank you for sharing your checklist!
  4. I'm confused about what order the checklists need to be done in, and how to use the short and long versions of the turnaround lists. When I did a long turnaround from cold and dark, I wound up starting my engines without the hydraulics on, and the plane started rolling.

File Name: KEDC - Austin Executive Airport File Submitter: jagipson File Submitted: 20 Jan 2015 File Category: DSF Scenery Packages X-Plane Version(s): X-Plane 10 Requirements: opensceneryx (Optional, highly recommended) X-Plane 10 ( well maybe >= 9.6 but untested The main hanger, service hanger, covered apron and terminal were all hand-drawn using Google Sketchup and some photos. The remainder of the objects are X-plane 10 standard library and OpenSceneryX library objects.This is the first in a series I will release aptly-named Minor Airports of Central Texas which will also feature KGTU (Georgetown), KHYI (San Marcos Municipal Airport), and T86 (Gillespie County Airport, featuring the hanger hotel, a popular getaway for puddle jumpers).This is the new Austin Executive Airport, located next to the CWK VOR. It is a private endeavor which was opened as a releaver for Austin Bergstrom.I've personally never been there - I've constructed the airport from photos and satellite photography. If any RW pilots have been there, or go there, please send me some photos so I can make improvements.I hope you enjoy it. See you on Vatsim. Click here to download this file

  7. File Name: Circuit of the Americas Heliport File Submitter: jagipson File Submitted: 21 Dec 2013 File Category: DSF Scenery Packages X-Plane Version(s): X-Plane 10 This scenery package adds the 2 concrete and 6 grass helipads in the precise location for the Circuit of the Americas (COTA), the track in Austin, Texas that hosts the Formula1 Grand Prix. Sorry, the race track facility isn't in this package -- it's the heliport only, however this adds a great option for practicing short haul heli flights as you ferry F1 fans from nearby Austin Bergstrom (KAUS) and Austin Executive (KEDC). Be sure to download my KEDC scenery package as it has the necessary helipads. Have fun! Click here to download this file

  9. File Name: LaCrosse Wisconsin - KLSE File Submitter: jagipson File Submitted: 28 Nov 2013 File Category: DSF Scenery Packages X-Plane Version(s): X-Plane 10 HAPPY THANKSGIVING. To celebrate, here's LaCrosse Wisconsin. KLSE. NOTE: There is currently a navaid issue which will be addressed in a future X-plane update. If you do not correct this, then the glidescope transmitter for R18 will appear (almost) on top of a taxiway. Since the data was updated, the taxiway and glidescope transmitter was moved. This airport file places the taxiway in the correct location, but you must (optionally) edit the earth_nav.dat file if you want to move the glide scope transmitter to the correct location. In a future update of X-plane, this will be fixed. Until then, you will need to edit the earth_nav.dat file after every time you update X-plane. Find the line in earth_nav.dat contains "ILSE" and ends with "GS", edit the lat/lng (second and third field) to match this line: 6 43.89033333 -091.25760000 652 11110 10 300179.446 ILSE KLSE 18 GS Click here to download this file

  11. I will say this much. I have never seen an X-plane add-on that was as clear about what arches/platforms/revs it could work with as this page, so congrats on finding a way to present it so clearly. I'll await for an email or some announcement that the new version is ready. I think I'll ignore the website for the time being -- no need to sell the product to me as I bought it ages ago.
  12. Oh. Since the product page is updated to feature v. 1.5 and it doesn't say "Coming Soon", one would assume that it is available. Duh!
  13. How do I download it? My account says 0 downloads remaining... Will X-Aviation customers be downloading via order history download links, or will there be an email going out?
  14. File Name: Gillespie County Airport File Submitter: jagipson File Submitted: 25 May 2013 File Category: DSF Scenery Packages X-Plane Version(s): X-Plane 10 T82 Gillespie County Airport, Gillespie County Texas (Hill Country Region) * OpenSceneryX strongly recommended Original taxiway and apron from satellite images. Featuring these original objects: Hangar Hotel Airport Diner WWII searchlight Vintage Billboard Antique Watertower Dog-run style terminal and administration buildings Also features a modified airport beacon (combining two library objects). Several other objects from OpenScenery and the standard X-plane libraries have also been set. This is a pilots' favorite, drawn from memory (with the help of several photos). This scenery has been developed and tested in X-Plane 10, buy similar scenery that I've created has been reported to work in latter versions of X-Plane 9. NOTE REGARDING THE TERRAIN: The alternative HD Mesh for this area greatly improves the experience, and even makes the Hill Country area look like The Hill Country. It's a distinctly separate add-on from this one, but highly recommended as it fixes other geological issues. Prior to installing this, I had to use GPS to pick out Enchanted Rock. With this add-on, the distinctive volcanic skeleton is visually identifiable. A special thanks to Andras for preparing this. It has made VFR flying in Central Texas worthwhile. http://www.alpilotx.net/downloads/x-plane-10-hd-scenery-mesh/Click here to download this file
