Update U01 for x05 only

If you downloaded before 2012, November 15 you can download this update U01.

 

This Update x05-u01 is ONLY FOR X05 VERSION and corrects the following:

WARNING: this update includes a aircraft.cfg. Please MAKE A BACKUP COPY of your own before installing.

PROGRESS VNAV PAGE IN FMC: the time "z" has been deleted to display local time.

CRUISE SPEED: the speeds have been adjusted. The maximum speed is 493 knots.
This is the equivalent to Mach 0.84 at 35000 feet (Ref; Doc Boeing: speed depends on aircraft type, temperature, pressure).

MAXIMUM SPEED (Red Line): is set to Mach 0.882 equivalent to 519 knots at 35000 feet. Speeds are modified in aircraft.cfg and FMC.

LANDING LIGHTS SWITCHES: when using Voice Command the landing lights where correctly set ON/OFF but the switches were not. Now, when landing lights are commanded by voice the switches are correcly positionned.

GROUND SPEED: now displayed in the MFD.

TAT TEMPERATURE: better displayed in the captain EICAS UPPER. Display problems remain with flat screens only.

HUD: the speed and altitude tapes are correctly displayed.
The HUD is better centered in the axis of the runway.

DESCENT: descent is triggered by 2 events. The first event happenning triggers descent:
1 - WAYPOINT TOD (Top Of Descent) is reached,
2 - Rule of the 1/3: for example when flying at FL300 you must start descent at 300/3=100 nm to the destination airport.
In this case a warning message "Descent xx nm" is displayed from 120 to 100 nm, then at 100 nm a message "Descent ?" is displayed.
Then click on the corresponding right switch to start descent. A new click restore the flight plan descent.
Descent starts with a V/S of 1500 and a target ALTITUDE = Airport Destination Altitude + 2500 feet which allows to reach ILS beam.
This process avoid to descent at a very high Vertical Speed programmed by the FSX flight planner.
DESCENT SPEED: the ECON SPEED is normally 300 for descent and 280 for TRANSIT SPEED. You can modify these speeds as follows:
- ECON SPEED: type in a speed and click on the corresponding left switch. In this case this speed will also be entered in the TRANSIT SPEED.
Click on the ECON switch to restore the standard 280 speed.
- TRANSIT SPEED: type in a speed and click on the corresponding left switch. A new click restore the original speed at 280.
IMPORTANT REMARK: the instructions given by ATC for descent and approach are often different from those in the flight plan.
Either flight without ATC or obey to the ATC instructions.

ENHANCEMENTS IN TCAS: some more detailed information in FMC. A false alert in MFD has been corrected.

Some more little corrections in MFD and EICAS UPPER.

REMARK: if you copied the JSG7378x05 in several aircraft you must re-copy the panel to include this update. We apologize for these problems.
