Re: Project FMC simplified for Project Airbus

It's a bit confusing since the A319 apparently also uses 40 degrees deflection for "FULL". The SmartCockpit documents are nonspecific regarding the model that the tables apply to and is therefor of little help.

Re: Project FMC simplified for Project Airbus

Is "0 - 0 - 10 - 14 - 21 - 25" the flap configuration for the A321?

The other configs only differ for setting 4 (i.e. 35° or 40°) and only between engines (CFM or IAE), not between models (A318/9/20), correct?

It's not that easy. In order to know what waypoints in the flight plan belong to a SID or STAR, the FMC needs to have a database to match them against.

Gauge bitmaps are not in 32 bit format and therefor do not support alpha channels. If their image properties are set to "Transparent=True" in the gauge (which I think is default), then pure black (RGB 0,0,0) is drawn as transparent.
