  1. Here's a workaround solution that I've used: 1.Start at the runway, and taxi to the gate *offline* 2.Once at the gate, shut down engines (if you prefer) 3.

  2. Here you go Wayne: http://www.x-scenery.com/ I highly recommend it. Not only is it a dream to fly, but it has the most accurate systems modeling of any aircraft on X-Plane right now.

  6. Although I've been a "member" of this site for quite a while, it wasn't until today that I finally worked up enough courage to test the waters (and, despite the outcome, I'm so glad I finally bit the bullet!) After yours truly spent hours reading and re-reading the materials listed in the PRC, I decided that no amount of preparation would make me sound like a 'pro' from the get go; ATC services would spot this noob from a nautical mile away, so I figured that a mistake here and there wouldn't hurt (mistakes are what we learn from afterall). My first venture into simulated air was a small
