"Yo quiero Taco Bell?"

I see you're still flying that B737 around...

Next time I'm in WF you'll have to show me that thing. (Do I still need to bring my own water?)

I'm starting the B777 transition and have made a couple of easy trips in it. It flies great, but it's really boring because everything is automated. Set the deck angle and trim to speed. Push one button and the fuel control and it starts. The FMC is a more advanced version of the B744. All data needed for the flight is downloaded automatically including the winds aloft.

You need someone to create equipment failures. <g>

Have an equipment failure, a warning light comes on, push the button and it goes away. Engine failure, the aircraft automatically adjusts for an asymmetric thrust condition and will command rudder to offset the yawing.

Well, you need an automation failure. Maybe a Gimli Glider. <BG>

The PMDG B777 has the ability to set random failures of all types.

Wow, no "real world stuff", huh. Sure wish that'd been the way it worked.

Well I doubt if the B-777 sim has random failures like an instant death from a missile -or perhaps a cockpit event and course change and then fly for 8 hours until the fuel runs out.

Regards,

Dux -been many years since I was in the (then) Northwest simulators every 6 months. When we got the first big simulators in January 1970, they had a mini city layout (3D) and a camera that would fly over it at various altitudes and project that into the simulator cockpit. The pieces of that really big mini city have long since been sold to aviation historians. If we had some extra time (not often) we would fly through the IDS building or under bridges on the rivers.

Chuckle, reminds me of the times stealing some 747-400 sim time after soup with Bill Atkins (back when BPs on Saturdays was still at KOs {King Oscars}) and doing that stuff plus power offs, etc. at Kai-Tek!

best, randy
