It is something we probably all do, setup for our flight, set the plane up, position, time, weather, panel state then saved that into our flight #xxxx in case we want to fly it again.

I was thinking that it would be a "nice to have" thing if we could download a pre-saved flight file which you just put in your fsx folder and load it.

Just something that would speed things up...

Cheers

I agree, but things get complicated with add-on aircraft (Level-D 767 has a separate file to export/import).

:)

We could start with the non-add-on ones first and then deal with the others afterward.

or we create a directory associated with each flight where each member can upload their saved flight files via CVAcars or a simple upload. Then you are free to download the one that fits your need.

There's also the issue that not everyone uses fsx,some use fs9 and xplane.


Here's what I do:

- start cvacars, servinfo
- freeflight Fsx starts at Montreal with lds767
- i import lds file (cold & dark)
- i load desired airport in fsx if required
- i prep plane, fsinn
- i load flight plan into fmc if i've already flown it, or enter and sav
- pushback, startup, etc

I like several others rarely use default aircraft.

Good luck!

Here's what I do:

- I start up ServInfo to see where Canadian ATC is on
- I decide where I'm going to fly
- I go onto twitter and the web and decide flying is something I don't have time for

:wink:

Thought of something else, what about adding ranking 1-5, difficulty level, being able to sort by departure and arrival time (day/night).

On the flight list, adding the possibility to filter more than 1 field.

What I've done myself was to transfert all the flights to excel and I added those filters and it is very handy.

You use CVACARS, are you aware that the 4th tab over (Schedule) you can get a list of flights like from CYUL and can sort it by flight number, Aircraft, arrival, flight time?

yes but it's not the same, you are always starting with your airport. What if you what to fly your 737 for 1-2hr at night? you can't find it with acars.
