Well that was weird. Granted been very busy the last five months but not getting update announcements and my iPad no longer displays new topics, new postings so I was wondering if the DM42s postings had stopped, until I checked the dates of postings.
Anyhow, it is here and I have some updating to do on my production version as well as my prototype. After all this time the prototype has functioned perfectly and gets apporoving looks on the flight deck.
Will get a picture op set up on the 787 along with my Apollo DSKY.
Thanks for the review
All the programs and more are on the DM42s as my primary go to calculator. Unfortunately the 787 cockpit windows as well as the carbon composite airframe provide a much more efficient shield to outside EM such as GPS signals so the HP25 IR-GPS no longer receives on the flight deck as it did on the 777.
The nice thing about the DM is the integrated time functions which caused me to modify the 42 programs that required manual time inputs. That is now automated.
Glad you liked the talk. However we now have iPads for al” mapping and plotting. Had to purchase a blue tooth GPS due to the shielding on the cockpit and the fact that our GPS unit built into the iPads for use do not work on the 787 flight deck. My small blue tooth unit fits in a gap in the overhead emergency escape hatch. The hatch fuselage/interface does not have whatever is shielding the external EM on the rest of the carbon composite fuselage and new heated windows. So I now have the gps functionality back on the company iPads. Makes real-time plotting and aircraft positioning graphical. The on board ship system doesn’t overlay maps as the iPad does.

Question, what is the difference between a non stop flight and a direct flight?
