Back in September I was flying from Venice to Vienna during the weekly Wednesday event from VACC Austria. there were a lot of traffic for runway 29, so I had to initiate a go around due to possible blocked runway and no given landing clearance. enjoy the flight and the interesting approach.
This is a short 5x timelapse video where we encountered severe thunderstorms and turbulence when we departed out of Treviso[LIPH] in Italy. It felt very real in the flightdeck with the Body Shakers doing their work for the turbulence and the visual effects as well.
A long time I have searched how to move the gsx menue away from the curved projection screen for convenience. Now I found a solution hinted in the Prosim forum. A simple lua script from Pete Dowson is the solution. This lua script generates all kind of stuff on another machine via WideFS. You can select between Weather updates, all text, all menus etc. So I tried it and this is the result.
Via the FMC and ProsimUtils you can control the GSX menue and now the menue is displayed as an overlay on the lower EICAS.
The only drawback is the you have to start WideFS on this machine as the last software to allow the overlay. This needed some adoption of my startup routine on this machine. But finally the captain and the first officer can see and interact with the menue. Sadly it’s not touchable, as my lower EICAS is a touchscreen.
This is the 21st and last leg of our Mediterranean Tour 2018. It takes us back north to Venice.
We started the tour back in March 2018 and we have visited a lot of great airports with some challenging approaches and weather conditions.
Our total block time was 22 hours and 06 minutes, we traveled 6459 nm, which are 11.962 km. We burned 53.4 tons of fuel during our tour.
I hope you have enjoyed it as well as I / we did. The next tour is already in planning 😉
