I agree. I haven't said correctly the bug.

The issue is that speed constraint is never cancelled even after passing waypoint. Aircraft stays at 185 until cruise !

I think I also had the same problem when manually entering a speed restriction in the FMC.

When flying out of SKBO, I fly with managed speed and vertical speed (I switch to selected mode if the plane is not climbing as fast as the SID says it should) and I have never had a problem. The plane will accelerate normally to cruise speed after finishing the turn. Can you tell how does the bug appear to see if I can recreate it in my simulator?

Hi Carlos,

I had the bug with the SID ROLUS9B. And I discovered where come from error.

In this SID, (I haven't checked others), you have set a trust reduction altitude at 800 ft (AAL) and an acceleration altitude at 2640 ft (AAL).

The bug comes that aircraft pass the speed constraint's waypoint while it is in SRS mode. So, when aircraft quit the SRS mode, it has passed also the next waypoint after the speed constraint.
So, FMC cannot detect waypoint linked to speed or altitude constraint while it is in SRS mode.

You couldn't no this phenomenon.

So, about SKBO, I haven't the charts, but I think that it is not necessary to have an acceleration altitude above thrust reduction altitude.

I give more explanation :

In standard case, Trust reduction altitude must be equal to acceleration altitude.

Acceleration altitude must be different only in one case : Noise abatement procedure.

Why ?

what's happens if Thrust reduction altitude = acceleration altitude (standard configuration) :
- aircraft take off with take off power and climb with 15° of gradient until thrust reduction altitude. (SRS mode : speed = V2 + 15 kts)
- when thrust reduction altitude reached, aircraft pitch decreases to 10°, engines decreases a little in Climb power, and aircraft can accelerate to climb speed (250) except if there is a speed constraint.

What's happens if acceleration altitude is different (higher) than thrust reduction altitude (noise abatement procedure only) :
- aircraft take off with take off power and climb with 15° of gradient until thrust reduction altitude. (SRS mode : speed = V2 + 15 kts)
- when thrust reduction altitude reached, aircraft pitch decreases to 10°, engines decreases many to keep SRS speed, with a pitch of 10°, to avoid NOISE, until aircraft reaches acceleration altitude: so that's means that between these 2 altitude value, aircraft go slower, with low engine power.



So, my FMC XML code, flight is "cut" in phase. Take off phase has 7 stages.
Take off phase = -1 ---> FMC is not ready
Take off phase = 0 --> FMC setup completed
Take off phase = 1 ---> aircraft take off (roll on ground)
take off phase = 2 ---> Aircraft has take off (wheel quit the ground)
take off phase = 3 ----> Thrust reduction altitude reached
Take off phase = 4 ---> acceleration altitude reached, aircraft accelerate to 250 kts
Take off phase = 5 ---> aircraft is above 10000ft : initial climb procedure is completed, FMC swith in "climb" phase


So, currently, waypoint constraint name can be detected only when FMC is in take off phase 4 or 5.

And only the name of the waypoint is used to detection. So, if you are in SRS mode (phase 2 & 3), no detection.
And if when FMC switch in phase 4, but waypoint constraint is not the previous waypoint, then detection cannot work.

I can try to add a detection by flight plan number order waypoint. But in SKBO case, I think that there is no noise abatement procedure necessary.

The restrictions could be a lot better and easier if you could just click on the flight plan on the right and type in 220/A8000 for example. You could then be able to do multiple restrictions at any point in the flight plan.
The first part is speed, then A for above, B for below and no letter for at the selected altitude. It would allow star approaches to any airport and you wouldnt need to maintain a database if you get your flight plan from a source that has stars.

I think that's a great idea.

That's true. The A320 Family are Stage 4 certified and they don't need to comply with noise abatement procedures in SKBO. I will make thrust reduction and acceleration altitudes the same, although the speed restriction will remain.

I don't want write a new panel or change too many things. I don't know if they are many SID with multiple speed constraints. In the most case, speed constraint is for an initial turn. And you can switches in selected mode in this case.

So, I found the bug and fixed it (I am doing some test to validate). Now, speed constraint is checked by the waypoint name AND its position # in the flight plan, so even if you are 2 or 3 legs after the speed waypoint when aircraft reaches acceleration altitude, constraint will be cancelled as expected.

So the issue is solved.


There is the same bug for an altitude constraint according a waypoint. Fixed also.

Let me one week to be sure that all is ok and I will publish panel update, with this bug fixed and others so (No STAR arrival altitude setup and ehanced TOD with the last Wulf's formula).

I think that is a good thing to remove Noise abatement procedure for SKBO, because, as airport is at very high altitude, it is better that aircraft has full power available just after take off :)

If you update SKBO, it will be a good idea to group SID by runways for a better look.... and last CSV SID file has 2 missing commas on a SID line, that occurs issue for all next SID.

If you want to test the speed/altitude constraint bug fixed before, I can send to you the Take Off gauge fixed.

IN the last airport database, I have forgotten to announce one airport, that is include in the last update :

- LBSF - Sofia Bulgaria by Martien Van Rooten.

Excuse me, Martien, for my mistake !

I tried to group the SID once but somehow I couldn't make that work properly so I dismissed that.

The missing commas have been added. I'll send you everything next week.

Francesco report to me some mistake in Aircrafts CFG files detected by the P3D bug detection system.
These mistake have no consequence, but it is better to fix them.



A319 CFM & IAE :
- in the [Flaps.0] section, key system_type=1 is duplicated : delete one of them


A320 IAE only :
- in weight & balance section, there are 2 lines "--------------------------------" : add "//" a the begining of these 2 lines


A321 CFM & IAE :
- in the [Flaps.0] section, key system_type=1 is duplicated : delete one of them
- IAE only : in weight & balance section, there are 2 lines "--------------------------------" : add "//" a the begining of these 2 lines
- CFM only : in [Electrical] section : Pitot_heat key duplicated : delete the last one.



CFM sound cfg file for A319, A320 and A321 : CFM only and not A318 !

open the A319 CFM "sound.cfg" file located in the "Sound.CFM" folder and replace ALL THE TEXT by the following text; save the file and copy the file in A320 Sound.CFM and A321 sound.CFM folders.
///Skyhigh Audio Simulations CFM56 turbofan sound pack for PA A320!

Francois, I have noticed that when I turn both the VC day lighting and strobe lights on, the VC lights blink (something as if they were linked to the strobes somehow). That didn't happen with the 1.52 version.

Guys can you tell me what is current project and which VC it will use.
If it is a330 with thomas ruth VC I have time now to do HD VC textures.
It's long project and I want to do it slowly.

Hello,

CokiBH, this will be the Tom Ruth VC. But you have time, because I begin to work on A330 gauge, but I think that I will ending beta panel in 2 or 3 months ! Many code to change for descent and climb gauge ;(

Take your time ;)


About blinking lights, this is FSX bug I think that occurs when all/too many light system (wings, strobe, land, dome,etc....) are activated.

For me, this is the dome light that flashes (from external view) if I use all lights.

No solution for the moment.....

It's interesting that the blinking lights appear on the A320 but not on the A318 or A319.

maybe linked to the model light system....

Some PA models have wings lights hard coded (because wing flex) in the model (A320 and A321 CFM ....) and other not (all IAE models)

I don't know if A318 has wing lights hardcoded or not...

Im pretty sure it was on the A318 and A319 IAE for me, I didnt check the A320 or A321 because I thought it would happen with those too.

Hello folks,

I am working hard on the A330-300 (Tom Ruth model) since several weeks. After many test and change, it flies. But many things must be improved yet...


The most difficult part is to set the AIR file parameters.

So, if you want to test a beta, I can upload it...

I recognized this effect too. One thing helped on my end to avoid artificial strobe light blinking inside the VC at night: Any external light to be switched on demand at first and the landing and/or nose lights should be switched on (if necessary) at last.

Re: Project FMC simplified for Project Airbus

Post by fdd_fr »

the most difficult part is to adjust N1 trhust setting according weight during climb.....requires to adjust engine thrust parameter in the AIR file and I have to smoothering the pitch control gauge because A330 is an heavy aircraft with more inertia that A32x.....

I will publish a beta next weekend.


So, I have upload a general panel update for A318-A319-A320-A321.version 1.57

You can download here : http://freenavdbgroup.com/download/Pane ... update.zip

What's new with this update:
- In rare case, unexpected MFD blinking TOD readings appeared in the bottom left of the MFD. Bug fixed
- Improved ECAM checklist.
- TOD error when no STAR used : gauge fixed
- new TOD v2.2 calculation by Wulf (arrival speed information used for a more accurate TOD) : A318 - A319 - A320 - A321 ok
- TOD error when a STAR was deleted and reloaded : fixed
- Save game file fixed about wrong engine version record : bug fixed
- at takeoff, a wrong speed appears on PFD during few seconds, when aircraft switch from SRS speed to initial climb speed or SID speed constraint : fixed
- Some minor ND reading issue fixed
- Fix a bug about optimal flight level reading after take off : bug fixed

- Now, you can enter a "No STAR Target altitude" value before take off.
- TOD was not updated when user changed "No STAR target altitude" value : bug fixed.
- Now, in lower ECAM status, TOD is always displayed with decimal
- In FMC page, TOD decimal is displayed now only if it remain 20Nm to TOD
- SID speed or altitude constraint linked to waypoint was not cancelled if aircraft was in SRS mode (noise abatement procedure) when passing waypoint constraint. Bug fixed.


I wait your feedback about this new version before to include an official link on the website, because I want to be sure that the famous "descent bug" (pitch freeze) during the descent is not come back.

Thanks. That's a great fix list, is the pitch freeze bug where you reach he TOD and it will only go to 1000fpm and would then stall if you left it?

If so, I suffered from that a lot. I suspect it had to do with the centre of gravity hence why it happened for some people and not others.

Edit, but on testing the A320, it kept the speed perfectly on climb and descent with full fuel and no cargo. It seems you sped up the autopilot pitch control and it worked great on the test flight.

I never got the flashing in the cockpit this time either.

The only thing that didn't go as expected was I entered 4000 in the box for the descent level but the AP still had 3000 when I pushed it at the TOD.

Also I got no call outs.

I used the old textures to record a video because the area on top of the FCU looked blurry with the new ones, and I've forgotten to reinstall the new textures.

The file unzipped perfectly for me. It maybe a cache problem somehwere.

About the callouts, it worked perfectly before but didn't after the update but I didn't think it did anything with the sound folder, I will check it again over several flights. I have 4.1 installed with every file you highlighted.

Strange, I downloaded with Firefox 52 no problem, did you have any download manager active?

The step climb seems to be broken, I tried it in an a318 and it just went into overspeed instead of climbing. I have to manually start the climb and then it was ok.

Just to confirm the target altitude does not work, I entered 6000 and it defaulted to 3000 as soon as the descent was initialised. The airport was at 2200 feet which meant ILS use was impossible. The second try it defaulted to 5100 which was the initial number, it would be good if the ILS could be pressed at any time to initiate approach mode as on the real aircraft.

FPA seems to be broken too, a -3.0 sent me into a -3500fpm dive as I was trying to land at the airport without ILS. No call outs again but on the plus side, I got the vref on the display for the first time.

I just discovered why there were no callouts, I got them in my latest flight but was still 2300ft AGL when the aircraft tried to flare.

There seems to be a serious bug with this release.

Probably a airport approach data issue or a FSX airport altitude bug, not from aircraft or panel.....

Flare is calculated with airport altitude data, provided by the FSX database.

can you tell me the name of your airport ?

Exemple for track A, BALIX is the entry waypoint and SAVRY he exit waypoint. end of line is flight levels.

Solution 1 :
I define recorded track. Gauge displays a list of tracks : you click on a track to load it in the flight plan
All waypoint for these tracks can be edited/changed with the FMC keyboard.

Solution 2 :
The gauge displays ;
- A list of entry/Departure waypoint
- A list of exit/arrival waypoint.

You click on the departure waypoint and arrival waypoint to load in the flight plan and you enter manually with the keyboard all intermediate waypoints that are named for exemple "5320N" for 53 N 20' 0.00"

What is your choice ?

Probably a airport approach data issue or a FSX airport altitude bug, not from aircraft or panel.....

Flare is calculated with airport altitude data, provided by the FSX database.

can you tell me the name of your airport ?
It happened at every airport I tried, ZLLL (6388), ZWSH (4528), ZWWW (2126) and one other I cant remember. I think it has to do with the descent altitude being wrong as it goes downhill from that moment onwards. The older version never had any problems with high airports.

Solution 1 looks the easiest to me for the above post.

SEATRACKS page of the FMC: Solution 1 seems to be more comfortable and easy to use. Solution 2 makes only sense if real weather functions in the sim FSX and P3D will work properly (Never checked or used this for FSX in the North Atlantic area).

To Flyer10: Please confirm, that you have no prob on a FD_FMC provided airport with an usual Flightplan, SID, STAR & approach loaded and here the callouts do work ok.

I don't use SIDS or STARS from the FMC, pro atc does it itself and injects it into the flight plan on the fly. Can you try a 4000 + feet high airport with no star?
Maybe that's where the FMC is getting confused. Everything worked ok previously as long as I remembered to set the target altitude before descent on the old version.

Hi I found that in A321 v1.57 my destination airport is always at 0 ft. If I switch into A320 (still at v1.55) the airport elevation is ok. So maybe there is a problem in v1.57 by which all destinations are 0ft!

I think using the star covers this problem up, did you not use a star and then had trouble with the FMC? It looks like non star use is impossible in 1.57.

ONly in A321 1.57 or all A32x 1.57 ? I just did a flight test and I haven't the bug.

So, the best way to understand what's happens is to save your flight and post here the content of the FMC ".csv" backup file.

Use a STAR or not has no relation to destination airport altitude. This information is collected when aircraft is loaded and can be checked in the FMC arrival page.



About seatrack, ok for solution 1
