Captains,
There's always room for improvement so feel free to report any issues but:

0. Please make sure you have read the Manual. 740+ handmade pages describing thousands of hard-coded features. Great reading.

1. Please report an issue if you are 100% sure it is a bug. Not sure? Please use General Discussion

2. Please use proper threads. E.g. do not post MCP issues in the FMC thread.

3. One issue ONE post, please.

4. Please provide a reference to the Manual page #.
CS Manual is based on the original Boeing's FCOM. For obvious reasons we cannot do all operators optional equipment variants.
It's not a bug if it's not in the Manual.

In some cases we can consider a reference to an operator's official Manual or CBT.
But any info from a third party software or from personal experience IS NOT a reference material. 

Also the Manual reference page # is absolutely required for all flight related and performance comments as we cannot work with the "slower-faster" kind of data. Official Boeings' numbers are absolutely required.

5. Please provide screenshots and/or screen capture videos for each issue.
Easy to use free services:
- For the screenshots: https://onpaste.com/
- For the videos:  https://screencast-o-matic.com/
Also you can attach an image to your forum post.

6. For all flight related floating issues (FMC, MCP, VNAL/LNAV etc) please SAVE the flight right on the issue, zip all 3 files of the flight (.fxml  .wx  .config) located ....\Users\you\Documents\Prepar3D v4 Files\ , upload the zip to any free hosting service (e.g. Google disc) and include the URL into your report.

COMPLETE AND CORRECT REPORTS WILL BE FORWARDED TO THE DEVELOPMENT TEAM.

CS developers will make marks and comments right in your post as follows:

- The red AIIR# mark in your post means: sounds like a bug but Additional Information Is Required indicating the numbers as per the list above.

- The blue SW means: Should work. So we need more users to confirm the issue.

- Highlight means the items is on the list.

Developers comments are in magenta.

Please DO NOT use any text color/effect other than plain black.

Thank you all for your input!

Hi Guys

The default screen in of the flight deck(Virtual Cockpit).
When moving to Captain and trying to move to forward view you end up at a Flight deck view not the captain view.

Regards , David

Pls use 'A' to cycle the views or the sim views menu to select a view.

The engine start-up spool is very unrealistic. It shoots to 35% N1 before stabilizing at 20%.

Engine start is also unrealistic for me. Sounds suddenly change when fuel is added instead of it being dynamic too.

Engine spool on start up needs to be changed to a more realistic response, The current sudden spool is unacceptable.

The spool is on the list.

As for the engine start procedure, it should work as described in the Manual.
Please use this topic to share your experience/findings on the engine start procedure.

Anyone know why the 757 start procedure is different to the other Boeings?

The spooling of the engines is not realistic. The engines should not go 100% on startup...

The spool is on the list already.

Not sure if it's exactly a bug but the little Flaps indicator when going through flaps quickly skips from Up - 1 then rest is smooth animation. Vice versa when going from 1-up. This only seems to happen when quickly going through your flap settings.


Please report an issue if you are 100% sure it is a bug. Not sure? Please use General Discussion
