I only recently spotted this, when using AFCAD to put in FS9 rwys, before scrappimg that route. It's very easy to put the runway in and not spot the fault, unless you do a few practice circuits. It seems odd, when doing a runway, to look at the screen's slew heading, then reverse it for AFCAD entry.

It was a good session, thanks to all concerned.  Has anyone else noticed
that the add-on scenery at EGPO has the runway heading markings on 18/36

Considering we only had two controllers on tonight instead of the usual four or five it was still a very good evening - even if the traffic was heavily biased towards JHB.. <vbg> Our regular foreign visitors were absent tonight but I saw them sailing down towards the Med so maybe there was another session going on.

Alternatively they may have decided to go elsewhere because
no notification
of the sessions is possible with the forum being down. I
wonder if the UKI
pages could get their own?

Temporary or not it was very nice to see you pop in. I was
looking forward
to my first radar approach on FPI but your visual call
terminated it after
just 1.5nm so I guess it doesn't count. It would have been
better if the FPI
screen had a centreline for EGPO but these only appear on ILS
runways - a
pity as directional guidance becomes a bit of a guess without them.

Many thanks to everyone else who took part - and I pass this
on from Dave at
Prestwick too. As he rightly said, it would have been a dull
evening without
the Diamond crews. Dave also asked me a question that may put
a smile on
your faces. He said "How many of your Diamond pilots are real life
aircrew?". It's nice to know you are all good enough to merit such a
question.. <g>

Good session this evening on FPI. Great to be back in the

only temporarily.
