Current Issues with our simulations

As with all professional  flight simulations, the last 10% of the work  takes 90% of effort. We have developed our simulations to be as accurate as they can be based upon publicly available data, however, there are a few areas that the simulation still requires further work and they are identified here. We thank our pilots for their continued feed back.

VS-PR-419

CHECKING

Engine fire warning test ,should receive another aural alert

Effects A330 and A320 PC simulations

VS-PR-565

IMPROVE

Cockpit prep pushing FD buttons, you must get the white dot and dashed values on SPD, HDG, V/S

First powered up FCU results in F/Ds on and dashes in the windows

VS-PR-580

MISSING

Cant save routes entered by flight crew on Data page

To write out to the routes directory. Future addition

VS-PR-599

IMPROVE

Incorrect In bound radial on FMGS  for Direct To

Acquiring DIR TO data for this discrepancy

VS-PR-608

MISSING

Test button missing of non functional Cargo Smoke

A320

VS-PR-609

MISSING

fwd and aft cargo fire buttons should have a fire red light

A320

VS-PR-617

IMPROVE

Abeam points not always made.

Need to increase the range for DIR ABEAM

VS-PR-623

DESIRABLE

Real world Weather

 

VS-PR-636

IMPROVE

Able to fly at FL350 / 240 knts on one engine

Engine/Aero model needs improvement

VS-PR-681

IMPROVE

lateral revision/airways, set up 5 lines,

 

VS-PR-692

CHECKING

More accurate mouse positioning over the FCU

Allow FCU panel to updated if only partially seen

VS-PR-694

IMPROVE

Improve thrust/drag performance at heavier A/C weights

 

VS-PR-697

IMPROVE

Improve the re-fueling. If dialog closed too soon, FOB is not correct

 

VS-PR-701

IMPROVE

No warning GPWS of BANK ANGLE which should came over 33 degrees

Airline Option to do + acquire voice sound

VS-PR-704

FIXED

Airline option/Build/Fit : SD Fuel page can show fuel rate

This is fuel rate from fuel Sys not Engines , thus shows leaks

VS-PR-720

MISSING

Amber MCDU Flight Plan page EFOB warning missing

 

VS-PR-724

DESIRABLE

NFP call  out for  Rotation

 

VS-PR-731

DESIRABLE

Add Transponder and Weather Radar panels

make possible to do a complete flow during cockpit preparation

VS-PR-735

DESIRABLE

Allow more cockpit  controls to be moved in PAUSED

 

VS-PR-737

DESIRABLE

Auto zero rudder at touchdown option

Options for NFP procedures required

VS-PR-740

DESIRABLE

More sounds, for cvr test audio sound, cabin crew chime

, emergency call chime and evac horn chime

VS-PR-742

DESIRABLE

Require A/THR equalization between thrust levers

 

VS-PR-753

MISSING

no TOO STEEP PATH message

 

VS-PR-764

IMPROVE

VOR auto tuning, still disregards close VORs

 

VS-PR-765

MISSING

ALTN route cant enter Departure or Arrival

Need to make ALTN a separate flt plan

Simulation is not as aircraft, and this could lead to negative training. This takes priority over all others

WRONG

This aircraft feature is not simulated

MISSING

This feature would be desirable on our simulations

DESIRABLE

This aircraft feature is being investigated for its relevance to the simulation

CHECKING

This aircraft feature is not always correctly simulated, or simulated poorly

IMPROVE

Defect has now been addressed and is in  the latest version, or is due to be in the nest version of software
