747 FMC Not Saving Flight Plan


Recommended Posts

Loaded up a saved 747 flight from Tenerife to Gatwick. As expected the autopilot and autothrottle were off. After a bit of a wrestle to re-engage I then noticed no track on the CDU and called up the map which also showed nothing. Popped down to the FMC and as suspected the flight plan created on starting the flight has gone - not even the arrival and departure airports listed.

 

This is a major bug as it effectively means you can't fly a long haul IFR flight in several sessions.

 

Surely this must have been picked up in testing?

 

About to log a bug report to Zendesk, unless anyone else has already done so?

Well the XP11 747 is not without its faults, but at least it keeps the flight plan loaded.

 

And the gushing reports from all the testers prior to release and the "Oooo", "Ahhh" videos on YT were telling us the default aircraft were so much better than what we had in previous FS iterations.

you ppl forget something, the ga planes are better, not the tubeliners, i guess these were hurried.

 

Some of the GA planes are okay but still have issues with autopilot and flight dynamics. The tubes were also featured quite prominently in some of the YT promotional material that was rammed down our throats.

 

Becoming apparent this (at present) is a sightseeing game - load up and fly for 40 mins looking at the scenery, exit then next time go somewhere else, rather than a full on procedural sim.
