RJAA-ZSPD Resources

Here are some resources for our Sept. 27 VATSIM Quarterly event between Tokyo/Narita (RJAA) and Shanghai International (ZSPD). Altitudes: Japan uses Imperial measures (feet) for altitude. Transition level for RJAA is 14000. China uses metric altitudes although my experience is that Imperial is also ...

in P3D/FSx variants, 06L/24R is missing. There are freeware AFCADs on AVSIM to update the airport.

Re: New and Changed Airports

Makassar, Indonesia - WAAA This is part of the Ring of Fire tour...

Runways 03/21 are missing in P3Dv4 and I assume in FS9/FSX/P3Dv1-3; can't vouch for P3Dv5 or MSFS or XPlane.

I did a search in AVSIM and found a group of Indonesian/Salewi airports that includes WAAA.

Re: VATSIM- Vpilot - MSFS2020: Configuration

Not sure if this helps but I've seen a few vPilot upgrades this week. As I write this - 9/13 - the latest version appears to be 2.6.7.

Re: ???AWARD Clarification Questions???

Question #1- "25 consecutive flights same airframe" Does this mean that flying a route on the schedule that has only a B737-900 as an option between 2 city pairs will count in the total if the pilot has only been flying the B737-800 and B737-900? The award description directs pilots to the tracking...

New VATSIM Ratings

VATSIM's new pilot rating system went into effect at the beginning of the month. New VATSIM Pilot Rating awards (P0-P3) were set up and our old VATSIM Rating awards (P1-P5) have been retired. If you had a vUAL VATSIM Pilot Rating award, you received your new VATSIM Pilot Rating award earlier today (...

Re: New and Changed Airports

Quito, Ecuador - SEQM This does not exist in MS/Lockheed based sims; you'll need to download freeware or payware to put an airport where SEQM should be. Freeware option: https://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=216945 The install looks daunting but only because the scenery maker gave you a lot o...
