About the sim

The goal with this project, is to build a fairly realistic replica of an advanced airliner, with the inspiration of a great jet-airliner, like the Boeing 737NG. The timeline for this project is, approximately 10 years or maybe more...

Test Flight!

ProgressPosted by Jesper Fuglsang Nielsen 10 Sep, 2008 15:56:49

Sunday the 6th of september, we took the DAXSim for a spin, after the major maintenance in form of a total reinstall of the simulator PC!

It took quite a while, to get all the stuff reinstalled and set up. We spend almost the whole saturday doing this.. But we finally got it all fixed up, and ready to fly before sunday!!'

Then the next day, sunday, we took it for a spin!
It was a 4:40 hr. trip, from EKCH (Kastrup, Denmark) to BGSF (Kangalusuaq, Greenland) And we used approx. 11 tonnes of fuel. We also tested the FMC/CDU from Engravity, and we were supprised to see how well it worked! No probs. at all!!


We also took some pretty great pics!! smiley

Here's the beautiful Engravity FMC/CDU in action:
