PMDG Forum Rules

1) SIGN YOUR POSTS. Since 1997, we have asked users to sign their real name, first and last, to all posts in the PMDG forum. We do this in order to keep conversations personal and familiar. You took the time to be here, we want to get to know you. This is one of the few rigid rules that we enforce regularly. We do so because we feel that forums in which users must engage one another personally are generally warmer, more collegial and friendly. Posts that are unsigned will be quietly removed without comment by the moderators, so to make your life easy- we recommend enabling your forum signature so that you never need to remember. Do this by clicking the username pull-down at the top right, then selecting "User Settings." You will find the signature editor on the ACCOUNT tab, about half way down the page. Look for "Edit Post Signature." Be sure to click the "Show Signatures" box.

2) BE NICE. We are all simmers here and no matter our differences of opinion, we share a common love of aviation, computing and simulation. Treat everyone else in the forum with respect even when you disagree. If someone frustrates you, walk away from the conversation or ask for a moderator to get involved. Speaking of Moderators, they prefer not to be treated as "The Thought Police" but if any behavior infringes on the enjoyment of another user or is otherwise considered to be unacceptable in the moderator's judgment, it will be addressed in keeping with our view of ensuring that this forum remains a healthy environment for all simmers.

3) BE LAWFUL: Any behavior that infringes upon the law, such as discussion or solicitation of piracy, threats, intimidation or abuse will be handled unsympathetically by the moderators. Threats and intimidation may, at the moderator's discretion, be provided to law enforcement for handling.

4) BE FACTUAL: When you post, always be factual. Moderators will remove posts that are determined not to be factually accurate.

5) RESPECT COPYRIGHTS: Posting of copyrighted material such as flight manuals owned by Boeing or various airlines is not allowed in this forum. If you have questions related to copyrighted material, please contact a forum moderator for clarification.

6) RESPECT PMDG: We love to hear what you like about our products. We also like to hear what you think can be improved, or what isn't working. Please do tell us and we will always treat your feedback with value. Just be sure to treat the team respectfully, as they do put a significant amount of effort into building and maintaining these great simulation products for you.

7) RESPECT PMDG DEVELOPERS: All of the developers will spend some time here. Given the ratio of developers-to-users, it simply isn't possible for us to answer every post and private message individually. Please know that we do try to read everything, but developer workload is simply too high to manage personal contact with tens-of-thousands of users simultaneously. In most cases, members of the development team will stick to conversations in the forum and will not answer private messages.

8) RESPECT OTHER DEVELOPERS: PMDG has always advocated for a strong development community and we have many friends within this community. Every developer offers something unique that helps to make the simming community larger and more vibrant. We insist that you treat our friends respectfully.

9) RESPECT MODERATORS: Moderators have a tough job, and none of them enjoy having to stomp out negativity. If a moderator has to weigh in to keep a thread peaceful, please respect that effort and refrain from giving the moderator any grief.

10) If you require official support for any of our products please open a support ticket through the support portal, https://support.precisionmanuals.com

11) This forum is designed primarily as a vehicle for the PMDG development team to interact with our customers, and for customers to interact with one another in a manner that is positive, supportive and assists in the general advancement of understanding the simulation and helping to make this and future simulations better. Any other use of this forum is not permitted, including but not limited to discussion of pricing policies, business practices, forum moderating policies, advertising of non-PMDG products, promotion of events, services or products that are not approved in advance by PMDG or any other topic deemed unacceptable by any forum administrator

12) HAVE FUN: This is the whole point of it all.

        When you took off out of HKG I actually noticed your flight and thought to myself that it would be a close one. I popped your flightplan into SimBrief with zero passengers and SimBrief spit out that you needed an extra 5000 pounds of fuel more than what the BBJ can hold. Needless to say I’m surprised you made it, was getting ready to see another forum post about a lost BBJ.

            Nice to see it work out lol. Don't own PFPX. I do have ForeFlight but I never thought to use it for the simulator. I've only used ForeFlight for my IRL flights puttering around in a 172. This is mainly because I have a variety of things programmed and saved pertaining to what I do IRL and I don't want to throw a bunch of sim stuff into the mix.

          Currently KSBA (BBJ base) to Duluth. You would never do that in an airliner and the KingAir ist just to slow for that mission.

              Guys, what about a callsign? I really struggle to choose one. Should it be a registration or other associated with lease company? How do You do it?

                You can use your registration as a callsign.

                Would you mind a short positioning flight to Haneda? I was eyeing a flight from Haneda to Trenton-Mercer (where I fly out of IRL, lot's of business jets).

                Currently I fly the Boeing demonstrator which normally operates with the "Red Barn" Callsign. Once I have a final livery I will use for the future then I will use the registration because most likely I will be simulating Part 91 ops.

                                I've done most of my flights in the beta from EDDF and back to EDDF. Destinations, amongst others were:
                                SEQM, TJSJ, KEGE, KJAC, CYUL, KBOS, KIAD, VRMM, VOBL, FIMP, FMEE, HKJK, FACT, VTBS, VTSP, NZCH, YPPH, RJAA and surely some more which I forgot. It's an excellent longhauler!

                                  Trying and testing it here and there (took off great from SLLP at 13,300 ft ASL), but I'll "seriously" fly it in VATSIM's Cross the Pond, between CYYZ to LEMD.

                                  As at the moment I don't have another twin with the range.

                                  Like, say, a 777. Right?

                                    Just did a flight from RJAA to KTTN. It was 6056.8 nautical miles with an air time of 12.8 hours.

                                      So far I only flew LOWW to LDDU. I like the RNAV approach to rwy29, with nice ORBX scenery.

                                        So far I've done:
                                        VHHH to RCTP
                                        CYWG to KORD
                                        VHHH to ZSAM
                                        and VNKT to VQPR.

                                        Going into Paro in the BBJ1 was a lot of fun 😊

                                          I just flew LGAV-MDLR (after real-life LXJ94). My longest yet at 10+50 enroute. Climb wasn't terrible, even with the 24k engines.

                                            I think the 24K performance has been thoroughly discussed. Keep in mind that 24K will perform as well as 27K as long as everything is normal, the extra thrust is important only when you have an inoperative engine.

                                            You're definitely right, Dan, it has. But what a cool city pair - Athens to La Romana. Only possible in the BBJ! Almost 11 hours. And 24 minutes to cruise at 166,300 lbs - that's right in the ballpark and certainly nothing to sneeze at. I understand some private jets can be nearly double that.
