ZSE Hosts FNO Friday Oct. 24


Recommended Posts

Reminder to pilots: The FSX/FS9/X-plane default 16R/34L has been renamed 16C/34C. Seattle controllers will be using 16C/34C in all radio communications.

 

Owen, can you recommend a good FS9 scenery package for Seattle that has the new runway config?

Ross, FlyTampa has a fix out which renames 34L/16R to 34C/16C. It's a sticky in the FlyTampa - Seattle forum.

Having the runway in sight just at TDZE + 100 is like Mom, Warm cookies and milk, and Christmas morning, all wrapped into one.

Thanks ... but I was looking more for something that adds the new runway in addition to renaming the center runway.

 

Will the vZSE controllers be using the new runway for pilots that have it? Or are they sticking to the original two, but with the left one renamed?

As per the real world, we will not be using the new runway until the November 28 TPP cycle outside of certain tests. I am working on scenery for FSX, but someone with FS9 will need to do a back-port of the FSX scenery or generate their own, using my approach code (which works in both versions of the sim)

The runway is NOTAM'd closed excluding flight check aircraft.

 

Yeah, I [Mod - Happy Thoughts]umed it would be in the NOTAMs and probably the ATIS ... I just figured they'd show it on the APD as well. Guess not.

 

By the way ... I [Mod - Happy Thoughts]ume the FlyTampa AFCAD update only works with their payware scenery product ... is that true, or can it be installed over the default FS9 scenery?
