  1. Simple solutipn for you, if you cant meet the requirements of the STAR or SID, notify ATC who will accommodate you in other ways. Example, 747s departing Sydney for the USA cant meet the climb requirements of the SID, and are therefore given a radar departure as an alternative.

  2. Your basic arrival procedures might be good for you in your Boeing and airbus air frames. It's NOT good for me flying the Concorde. I'm flying faster than you are, and the turns required for your basic arrival, are drastic, for me, and I have to bleed off quite a bit of speed. Departure isn't really an issue because of the work I have to do in order to get to cruise alt. Eastern Russia, or starting at UKBB @ Kiev, and heading east, is the best area for what I fly. Otherwise, I would beat you, in the Euro sector via transocean routes, or to going to JFK & Miami from Heathrow and LFPG.

  3. I don't think he's very concerned with that, it seems to me he mainly wants to swing his Concorde around a little if you get my meaning. Not sure what that's accomplishing since there wouldn't be much incentive for anyone to measure their abilities against those of a complete, rambling stranger, but I think we've all read way too much into this whole thread initially.

  4. OK, BL. My Concorde goes 240 kts., and less by the time I reach that point, BL. And I'll outmaneuver you or any buddy you have in the process as well. That is, of course, unless you're flying the highly responsive Dassault Rafale. Not that the highly responsive Dassault Rafale would be the right aircraft for you. Or your buddies. ๐Ÿ™ƒ It is for me though. You, and anybody else, can count on that fact. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. You're right. Besides the Concorde SSC, the Dash8B is my favorite aircraft. ๐Ÿ„โ€โ™€๏ธ Always will be.

  8. When I made my jabs and insults at your airbus' 380, I meant it. Don't presume to dance around the subject with your ambiguous caveats. Your airbus' 380 is simply the disaster, not only in design and concept, but in plain economics. I don't see how they can possibly recover from such a monumental blunder.. You people had better do a bunch of hauling to try and make up for that disaster.. As the Tom Berenger character says, in the movie, when playing the Paul Bryant role: "you're gonna work now.." Airbus' 380 is the absolute epitome of the white elephant of aviation. Period. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

  10. I couldn't care less what "home base" never was, or is, for the "real" Concorde. I will tell you, and anybody else on VATSIM, or anywhere else for that matter, that Kyiv is a perfect location for the one-of-a-kind beautiful Concorde. Period. It's excellent approach chart to Rwy. 36R is perfect. So is the taxi follow cart to the ramp. The other obvious dream come true, for the Concord would be, of course, the excellent, and famous, KDFW facility. Period.

  11. There are a lot of outdated posts that haven't been updated for a decade... I will do a sweep and update everything I find as soon as possible! ๐Ÿ™‚ And yes, 30nm is the effective range of voice UNICOM; 15nm radius from both planes. Edit: I see that the link is pointing to the Pilot Resource Center. We are rebuilding our website, but have relocated the Pilot learning platform to our new user platform: https://my.vatsim.net/learn

  12. Hi Jim, are you the one who insists to fly super-sonic over Central Europe? Our "virtual citizens" don't mind the sonic boom but if you are talking about "reality" etc. maybe also consider that super-sonic is generally only allowed over water and the routes flown by Concorde always had deceleration points defined to allow the aircraft to reduce the speed below M1.0 prior reaching landfall. Other than that it was already written that Concorde can perfectly fine fly with "normal" speeds - it's more a question of fuel consumption why it got priority in it's days as it was nearly always low on fuel. Cheers Michael

  13. Have you read my previous post? Your flightplan route was not correct. And the "drastic turn" that you mention is NOT part of any STAR, it is part of your enroute section. With a smart turn this should be no issue, even at 500 KTAS. And: Kyiv was never a homebase of the real Concorde. Finally I fear that you are here to troll us.

  14. Finally found some time to dive into this. Time was very precious lately. Would you be able to test it for me @Owen Kane? My plan is to share my plugin on Gitlabs, or maybe @Nestor Perez has a place to share it? As we made some early decisions during our migration from Joomla to WP, we where able to start with SSO from the beginning. If you already have some users in your WP database, things might get nasty. Edit: if someone else wants to join in, feel free to do so. I expect you to have some knowledge of PHP. My plugin is very basic on the Admin side. The config and setup takes place inside the code, which is btw very small and readable. With enough PHP knowledge you would be able to extend it to your needs. That is why we haven't shared it to the community yet. Our goal was to switch to oAuth2, not to build a shiny fancy plugin ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Disregard - I'm an idiot and forgot to enter in my IP into the VATSIM dashboard to access the API.

  16. Who exactly are you yelling at? Eurocontrol, for publishing procedures that are challenging to fly in an aircraft type that last flew 17 years ago, and that was a special snowflake even back then? VATSIM for using official real-life procedures? People who fly normal airliners for being insufficiently compassionate about your self-inflicted problems? I don't understand what your problem is, what you want changed, and who you expect to make those changes.

  17. Of course, EGLL is one of my all time favorites, but that's a given. So it doesn't really matter. ๐Ÿ˜‰
