Do we have any documentation for the recent Lear45 FMS upgrade?

  • I see there are several new pages that seem to be active. The flightplan and fuel pages appear to be active but, active is to be take lightly. I read the change logs and found a few statements but no reference to documentation for use. This is a huge step forward and I would like to explore it to the fullest.

  • Recent?. At least it has been out several months ago (2-3?).

    Yea, I know, but it was in the last big updates for the Lear45 and there haven't been very many big ones. All the updates are appreciated but, this one seems to be something worth exploring more.

  • Not in the Lear45 section, but in the UNS-1 section. Link available from Lear45 section. Very comprehensive coverage of the available pages.

  • You should try enabling “Advanced View Mode” in Settings to have a better view of all the instruments. You can also zoom in or out with the mouse wheel.

  • Jan, Can Altitude to added from the CDU for the Flight Plan?

    I already have "Adv View Mode" selected but, I'm not so sure I see a lot of difference. I am looking for quick look, super close up of the CDU and back to my basic flying view.

    It has helped me a lot, but I guess it's a matter of "taste".

  • Are you flying in VR?

    Not much, only 30% of the time.

  • I made a little IPACS specific chart for Speeds and Landing Distance for the Learjet 45. We only have one weight, no matter how much or how little fuel is assumed. Actually, neither temperature or altitude or conditions affects performance so we really only need a handful of numbers to remember. Maybe I will compute one Landing distance for all altitudes, temperatures, and conditions. 8o


    Without all the factors applied the landing distance for our weight could be calculated as a single number for all conditions. I think a good round number would between 2,300 and 2,400 feet. This is taking some middle of the road numbers, some guess work, a fudge factor and a couple of SWAGs. It is based on a good pilot technique, smooth surface, full flaps, autospoilers deployed and use of thrust reversers to 60 kts then light foot braking.


    Wind direction and speed does seem to affect takeoffs and landings so maybe I can make a performance chart based on wind speeds and directional vectors instead of temperature and altitude. hmmm.

  • Thanks, Jan,


    Yes, I see the ISA temps changing at altitude. So the little IPACS specific Landing distance should be accurate for both temperature and altitude. But, fuel weight, which is significant, does not currently affect performance because it is not really being added or changed.


    I thought it was so cool when the other sims started showing the oleos compressing as fuel was added.
