  1. Help me with a question about flight planning and cruise altitudes between Hong Kong and Singapore. Based on the following flight plan: PECAN V12 EPDOS L642 CN L644 MABLI N892 MABAL, controllers have told me that FL360 and FL390 are available for that westbound magnetic course. Am I correct in [Mod - Happy Thoughts]uming that FL370 and FL380 are [Mod - Happy Thoughts]igned to eastbound flights?
  2. With all this legal and political wrangling, has CPA Virtual shut down? The registration page on the site won't accept a new application. Nevermind. Found the Tiger Group.
  3. The AIP in Pakistan's Civil Aviation Authority website doesn't have any high and low enroute charts. Does anyone have a source?
  4. Interesting. I can talk with other controllers around the world without a registered FSUIPC.
  5. Just flew to/from SBGR when all the Centers were staffed. The controllers didn't appear in Squawkbox's ATC list, but I could text with them using the Chat function. Do Brazilian controllers use a private channel for all ATC services?
  6. What's wrong with this site? http://www.aisweb.aer.mil.br/aisweb/ It's very slow to download, and the links to the pages (Cartas) don't work.
  7. Four files? I see only one! Extract them with what application? Problem solved. I couldn't see the four files inside the .rar file when using WinZip. I used 7-Zip File Manager. Everything's installed!
  8. Edmonton Center has the same problem.
  9. The link (vatmex.org/sat_charts.htm) posted in VATSIM's Chart Room takes me to a search page. Can you change the link?
  10. The site to VATMEX's chart room is confusing. Where are the approach and departure plates and airport diagrams located?
  11. Google Earth shows Cancun with parallel runways. When was the second runway finished? Any scenery available after 2008's addition of Terminal 3?
  12. Can you correct this situation on VATSIM?
  13. I'm flying the TBM 700. Thanks for the info on FSUIPC and SB3.
  14. I purchased both the Flight Pro yoke and pedals. Overall, they're great; I've been pleased. The yoke is spring loaded to the neutral position. It rotates only about 45 degrees in both directions. No button or rocker switch can be programmed as a push-to-talk button in Squawkbox (bummer!). Programming within Flight Sim is a challenge. You must refer to both the included instruction manual and from the Saitek website. They could've been written better for easier installation and setup. The driver CD is included; both yoke and pedals are PnP. The prop pitch control won't work intially; the
  15. Flight Pro is its name. Also, Saitek is coming out with rudder pedals that look great. Check out the Pilot Shop link on flightsim.com.
  16. the Saitek Flight Pro yoke and throttle quadrant. Latest price is $149.95. Does it work as well as it looks?
  17. I noticed that VRoute utilizes .NET Framework 2.0. In Microsoft's update site, .NET Framework 3.0 is an optional download, not to mention a huge one. Any advantages or conflicts working with version 3.0 instead of 2.0?
