  1. Right, I've got it now. Turning on "Display PDF in browser" allows ECR to show the chart within the ECR window.

     

    I'll throw the feedback out there and I may be the only one. It's not as nice to use as LEROY although it is more visually pleasing. The chart size limitation is too small. It would be nice to have the option to open the chart directly into adobe reader or acrobat. I understand that the website allows me to download each chart individually and open them as I desire.

     

    The reason I say that it's handy to have that functionality is that we generally work more airports simultaneously than RW facilities. Switching back and forth between 2 or more airports within the same app can get comebersome. I still appreciate the work on the product.

  2. Yeah, probably. I really disliked the pdf's opening in browser windows and have them open directly into separate Adobe windows. It allows me to have as many windows open at once as I want. It helps when I'm flying as I can have an Airport Diagram open with a SID I've been cleared for and even a STAR open all at once in separate windows and close them when I'm done. I loved that with LEROY. Select a chart, it opens in Adobe and stays there while I search a different airport.

     

    I'll try to figure out how I did that in adobe and turn it off. I'll [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ume I'll only be able to view one chart at a time, then?

  3. My IE version is 11.01 something. IATA codes still work on Aircharts.org and worked in LEROY so I [Mod - Happy Thoughts]umed they worked with ECR. However, ECR isn't reporting any charts either way and doesn't give me an error when I put one in. It returns a blank page that looks exactly like the opening page.

     

    I'm using Windows 10 with the new creators update already automatically installed.

     

    Are you interested and able to help me get it working? All I have done is uninstall LEROY. Unpack the ECR.zip. Run the exe file.

  4. I think that is for additional blip drivers to connect to the simulation isn't it? I don't think it is necessary otherwise. Students will still connect in the normal way using their preferred client.

    Right. As a lone instructor, I understand that I have to click every aircraft and select "Get Simulation" in order to manipulate the aircraft. Like I said, it's not too big of a deal, just another step when conducting the session.

  5. Is this in response to what Ernesto and I posted in the previous two replies? (It's hard to tell because you didn't quote anyone.)

    It couldn't have really been said to you as I am basically reinforcing your post from above.

    I will say, however, that I think pilots should always be able to give their approximate position relative to a VOR or airport, and thus there is no reason why a pilot shouldn't be able to respond with a proper position report if a controller sends a "contact me."

    It should be easy for any pilot to tell you where they are, no matter the navigation equipment. Whether a "contact me" is received or not, know where you are and tell the controller where you are on the initial contact from uncontrolled airspace. The pilot should really be pretending they didn't receive the "contact me" in my opinion.

     

    Here's a big bonus to knowing your position. Likely, if you know where you are, you'll have a pretty darn good idea as to when to contact a controller and won't rely on having to receive the "contact me" message! I think a lot of pilots do forget that the message is a courtesy. I too often get disappointed receiving a PM from a pilot who just transitioned from one side of my ARTCC to the other asking why I didn't send the message. I usually point them to the Code of Conduct B3 and they don't reply after that.
