  1. I do own the E170&E190 package since yesterday (however only using the E190 - on P3D V4.5) and this issue is similar to me: Well, my cockpit is not this dark, however I can confirm the issue of the dome light not acting in daylight (including twilight). More over, the EMER LT doesn't seem to be modelled at all 😞
  2. Hey, even though I‘m not part of the feelThere-Team, I can assure you that the E-Jet Autothrottle is not always a real help on the real aircraft as well. The real A/T is a little bit slow on the compensation of changes (keep in mind, that even the 737 is not quite perfect there), but especially it has a tendency to rather go a little bit under the selected speed than above it - so for your calculations be rather pessimistic und choose speeds a little higher than you‘d usually choose. Therefore in our operations we stand to use our hand as a backward limit to the throttle, manually overriding it regularly. Especially in gusty conditions I would not trust the real A/T doing its business alone and by the calculated values. We do always override, but still keep it on as a safety net. By the way, what is your weight in the scenario? I do fly the E190 myself and know the E170 only from the Simulator, but 115knts - especially in a turn - sound really low to me. Best Regards Björn
  3. Wow, that is tremendously fast 🙂 Thank you very much again 🙂
  4. Having those ones in mind, I wanted to ask whether someone has the chance to paint the full flygbra.se colours on one of the WDL Aviation E190s? Presently D-AJHW and D-AWSI are carrying those colours as seen in the link below https://www.planespotters.net/photo/1056166/d-ajhw-bra-braathens-regional-airlines-embraer-erj-190lr-erj-190-100-lr [D-ACJJ still has this hybrid scheme and D-AZFA is all-white/grey belly/red winglets (just like the 5th one which had not received its registration yet)] This would be highly appreciated. Best Regards Björn
  5. Hey there, I just came to this report here on the Known Issue List and made my way through the E190 AOM, where I found this: So from my point of view the actual solution until now is handbook-wise correct and should therefore not be changed in the Service Pack. To the question on why this behavior is not visible in the posted video above, I can just say that I have to give it a pass - luckily until now I was not able to reflect that myself.
  6. Hey, If the aircraft is getting into GA/TRACK mode during the approach itself, it seems that you have by whatever reason hit the TO/GA button or somehow similar. A reactivation of the APP mode, so ILS/VOR/NDB/RNAV, in this situation of GA thrust application and initiation of the Go Around Procedure is actually deemed unsafe and should actually be prevented. If it happens, fly the Missed Approach, line up once again and have a look if it happens again. In case you cannot explain yourself how you could activate the TO/GA Mode and that the situation is replicable, could you give us a short insight on what the situation was, so which height AGL, config, actions from your side? Regards
  7. Goedenavond, Holá and Hej, To explain the RNAV/RNP/GPS (or whatever it gets called in the next week 😀 ) I would like to make an actual overview on how the Embraer is structured concerning the various types of approaches: [Advise: This is not tested on the Feelthere E-Jets V.3 yet, but sourced of the Embraer Procedures] Lateral & Vertical Guidance vs. Lateral Navigation only Lateral & Vertical Guidance is given in almost every kind of approach (ILS [glideslope signal] as well as VOR, NDB, RNAV [calculated vertical glidepath - confirm with chart values!]) Lateral Guidance only is given in a Localizer only Approach (LOC) Magenta Needles vs. Green Needles The Embraer shows the source of the announciations and indications in different colours: Magenta Needles are reflecting to FMS data Green Needles are using radio-navigation source In detail: The ILS Approach is flown (as mentioned in the linked post of mine above) in Green Needles, so on V/L mode (with previous PREV selection if needed) with APP Mode selected The VOR/NDB/RNAV/RNP/GPS Approach is flown on Magenta Needles, so in FMS Mode, but also with APP Mode selected (basically all are GPS overlay approaches) The LOC Approach is flown on Green Needles, so on V/L mode (with previous PREV selection if needed) with NAV Mode selected Don't forget to Press Activate Vectors on the FMS when on vectors-to-final during approach. It clears up the Navigation Display and is especially essential for VOR/NDB/GPS Approaches, so the aircraft knows that the final track and glidepath are the only inputs it needs [Magenta needles = FMS data]! But just get yourself familiar with it for all kinds of approaches, then you wont forget about it in the rather rare case of VOR/NDB/GPS (compared to ILS) Just a little advise for ILS/LOC approaches (as in V/L mode) - In case of a Go-Around you have to re-select FMS at about 400ft otherwise you can press NAV as often as you like but the aircraft wont follow the planned missed approach I hope i did not forget anything important, did not mix anything up and it would be even better if this could be a help to anyone 🙈
  8. Oh that's interesting and indeed should be changed. But still, the use of the TO/GA button - to answer your question Matty - should always be taken. Even though the add-on is not fully in-line with the aircraft for the time being, the Embraer idea behind it makes sense and should (from my outside point of view) not interfere with the situation of the modes in the sim.
  9. Hey, Ok so from your narrative it seems the Feelthere E-Jets are the Pre-Mod Load but that is actually more familiar to me than the upgraded vastly changed and improved FMS Loads. [Btw. I dont have the add-on myself yet, waiting for the SP] The TO/GA Button only gives you T/O Pitch and Roll Mode, you can pre-select NAV for Lateral Navigation on Ground and it will come to effect at (I believe) 400ft AGL You select VNAV after Take-Off - a bit dependend on the operating airline - but if I remember correctly Embraer recommends 1000ft AGL The A/T is usually selected when lined up on the departure runway, so that you do not accidentally run into an acting ATTCS and a activation of T/O thrust prior a real need directly prior T/O Run. Hope that solves a bit of it 👨‍✈️
  10. Awesome! Never expected something to come up that fast and then with all the present variants. Thank you very much! (by the way: The 4th aircraft (D-AZFA) just arrived in Cologne this night, presently in basic colours - will see how that will look in the future 😉 And another 5th one is in preparation in SJO)
  11. Hey Matty, It indeed has to be pressed as part of the Before Start Procedures. You have to set your FMS completely, choose the relevant speeds for you and afterwards you press the TO/GA button on ground. In that way the Autothrottle is armed for the performances entered in the FMS. You shall also compare your pitch indication on the flight director to the value displayed in your MCDU at that. However I'm not sure which Epic Load is installed on the feelthere E190 (so basically which software update of the FMS), but for the newer versions (Post-Mod LOAD 27.1) Embraer says the following: "Verify LNAV and VNAV armed on ground. Pressing TO/GA Button on ground arms LNAV and VNAV. VNAV is planned to engage according to the DEPARTURE LIMIT page settings" Regards Björn
  12. Hey everyone, Would there be anyone to create the E190 of WDL Aviation or even better German Airways (as they are all going to be repainted at some point)? WDL Aviation: https://www.planepictures.net/v3/show.php?id=1568867 German Airways: https://www.planepictures.net/v3/show.php?id=1578948 Would be highly appreaciated!

    APP in HDG mode

    Hey everyone, As far as I understand the issue in here, this is not a bug- it's a feature or better-said the way Embraer designed it: If you come along your flightplanned route on LNAV/NAV or on Radar Vectors in HDG, the aircraft will not simply follow an instrument approach (ILS/VOR/RNAV/NDB). As long as your compass rose on the lower PFD is only set to FMS1 respective FMS2, the aircraft will ignore any Navaid information! In order to fly an ILS you have to select either V/L or the PREV mode: 1. V/L Mode: Pure mode of radio navigation (works great when on heading / does NOT work on an FMS magenta routing) 2. PREV Mode: Select that when in a regular approach, it basically arms the V/L mode as long you are not yet intercepted to the Localizer. - So you set your approach, enter it in the FMS, brief it, confirm the freq being set and then arm the PREV mode - A second indication will appear on lower PFD besides the magenta FMS needle - Indication will switch automatically to green needle V/L when intercepted Hope that this answers the questions and is not totally far off. Best Regards Björn
