Creating Simple Mission

Recommended Posts

I have begun to get the knack for cold starting, taxiing, takeoffs, open flying around with some base navigation to waypoints, and then still working out landings:)

 

I have gone in and created a simple mission with one aircraft group and one plane. I added 4 points; 0 - 3, with 0 being takeoff and 3 being the Entry Point from the VAD chart. I set some waypoint altitudes and made them all turning points.

 

Am I doing this right to just make a free flight, no combat, no other aircraft mission? Not sure where the best place to start is for this.

 

Thanks.

OK, I must be dense. I save the mission, and then start it up. the plane starts on its own in a hangar and starts taxiing out. I hit F1 to go inside and nothing.... How do I get to fly the thing? Sorry, must be very obvious.

Got it, thanks.

 

When I create the waypoints, I drag them around and it displays the Lat/Lon coordinates. If I want to tweak those (so I can be precise with the Entry/Exit point as an example), I don't see a way to actually type in the coordinates. I can alter them in the CDU once the jet is up and running, but that seems to be the hard way. Ideas?

 

Thanks again for your help.

Zoom in? I think that's the best you could do with the ME. I'm only ever in the general vicinity of waypoints, anyway, so that sort of precision is beyond me.
