i have found that it gives the 457 kt readout whenever you switch the options to "display true airspeed", but that's not realistic. However I wouldn't think that the indicated airspeed would be half of the true airspeed, or am I wrong?

underpowered aircraft?

The Lear 45's cruise speed is 457 kt. Why does the FSX aircraft start screaming its overspeed warning at about 320?? the service ceiling is also said to be 51,000 ft. this thing struggles to reach 40,000. and the thing is, it seems like most of the aircraft behave like this. what's the deal? :?

I know that someone uploaded the default FS2004 C182 with some compatibility edits for FSX. I saw it somewhere recently.

But if you're wanting a 182, Carenado's model is the way to go, 110%.

Working APAP glide slope indicator!

A first for Flight Sim scenery? The APAP slope indicator! (This particular setup is at Grundy Municipal Airport). This is apparently a really archaic version of VASI and PAPI. The object of the game is to line the three panels up in a row, which then indicates that you are on a proper glide path for...

Haha, no... that would only happen if something was wrong with the localizer antenna, which is at the far end of the runway. It operates just like a normal glide slope, it just looks funny. I did some digging... two other airports that have one of these are Charleston Yeager on runway 23 and Los Ang...

Ever seen one of these before?

"End Fire" Glideslope antenna array, located at Rowan County Airport. It is supposedly only one of like five in the US. It is a special type of antenna that allows for a glideslope at an airport with odd terrain (ie. the large gulley at the end of runway 20) that otherwise couldn't have one. And her...

FSX flatten?!

It seems my problem is not with the AFCAD, but the airport flatten area... I've moved the runway outside of the flatten area for the FSX KMKJ! Thats what is causing parts of the ground to show up through the runway. But for the life of me I cannot find any way that WORKS to create a flatten area for...

OK, I see that some of you have FSX... could one possibly do me a massive favor? Could you post a few screenshots of the default KMKJ from FSX, so I can see what I am going to be working with here? I am doing a made-from-scratch GMAX scenery, so I need a preview of what I need to do. Thanks alot!

I have never even thought of that. Is that very good money? I'm not that talented in my opinion. I might go for a payware quality addon before I start charging.

Maybe some photoreal ground textures or something?
