Constantly getting Cs and nothing higher.
I saw online that if we installed the Working Title Garmin 1000 NXi we should delete it. I tried that using the Content Manager and even though I deleted it and restarted MSFS, then deleted it again and restarted it was still there. I finally deleted all Working Title folders from the Community folder.
Here’s where people talk about deleting it and others confirming it in the contents: YT watch v equals GOVNDP-NiLo
After deleting the Working Title Folders from the Community folder I restarted MSFS and they were no longer in the content.
I flew IFR Lesson Four again and got a C!
FlightCap9642 mentioned he got all As on the first three IFR lessons.I did too. Lesson four introduction, tasks, and instruction are poorly designed. It acts like a test but it is supposed to be training–you know,with clear guidance and step-by-step notes.
On literally every other flight training and test of all other activities before I got to IFR the instructors genuinely seemed to be reacting to my actions. And they were very close. In IFR Lesson Four it begins right away complaining about my altitude control. Yet, THAT is where it put me–at c. 3800. So the next time I ran L4 --the moment it began, while the instructor was narrating-- I immediately climbed to 4k and got there before he was done. I was at 4k and as soon as he was done narrating he once again complained about my altitude control! LOL
So, because this element is so tightly controlled, and not reactive to my flying like the other lessons were, I think the rest of the L4 IFR “training” [cough] is like that too. I think It has a very specific envelope you must fly within to get more than a C. So, I’m certain one of the cornerstones to an A on this is the rate at which you make the left turn and perfectly intercept the CDI. Then, of course a major factor is maintaining a perfect 170 heading.
One trick I’ve got working on these is using the elevator trim to keep me at 4k so I can focus on the 170. Aileron trim works but I’ve not been successful with rudder trim.
I’m on about my eight or ninth run and each time I try different things.
I’ve tried the slow turn to 170. I’ve tried the fast turn to 170. I’ve tried an early turn and a late turn. I’ve tried to turn and intercept the CDI without going past it.
On my most recent run I did a moderate turn and intercepted the CDI as I crossed 170, then gently went back and forth between 169 and 171. During that time I got the green and a compliment from the “instructor” who had been hiding in the baggage area instead of training me with, you know… instructions. Even after we passed the VOR and he told me to keep flying 170 I held the CDI almost exactly on 170 until the end when he snuck out of the baggage area again and told me I was a very bad pilot. Just before the simulation ended I thought he climbed back into the baggage area but saw I was alone and his co-pilot door was open (at 4020feet).
I’m going to keep trying until I get a B and then keep trying until I guess correctly what the instructions are supposed to be for this one! LOL
I wish this training lesson had training rather than testing.
All IFR VOR Cs and no As make Jack a dull boy.
