Hi. I'm new to the Concorde. The Concorde works perfect. Only thing is, I don't know how to use it correctly, do flights etc.

Does anyone know of anywhere I can learn the Concorde X?

Could be anything from websites to videos.

Regards,

Charlie.

In the Concorde documentation folder, you'll find a comprehensive tutorial covering all segments of a normal flight. It follows a LHR-JFK leg, and takes you through everything you need to know and do on the flight deck. It takes a lot of reading and studying, but the feeling of reward you get from mastering Pointy is like no other! You can both complete the entire flight, and create save-points along the route in order to repeat certain segments of flight in order to practice things.

Hello Charlie,

Apart from the advice given by Meece I would recommend the excellent ITVV Concorde double DVD. It covers the whole aspect of a flight from Heathrow to JFK and the return. It's probably the best educational video ever made for Concorde.

You can buy it here. http://www.itvv.com/product/Concorde

PS. I see you were born 15 months before Concorde last flew so it's unlikely you've seen her in the skies. That's a real shame. :(

Yeah have to agree with Meese and Ray. The tutorial is fantastic and the video is great. I've only had about 100 hrs or so flying time so like you I am new to conc. What you'll find is that unlike any other sim this one requires lots of reading and time, I think I'm just about holding my own now. Anyway you may find this thread interesting: Concorde , it's long but from start to finish there just so much info there I think it rates as 'a not to be missed'

All the best

Steve

Ps @Ray I have seen her in the sky yeah I'm that old :(

My abiding memory of her is the penultimate landing into Manchester back in Oct 2003 and its final take-off from that airport. The pilot stopped opposite the park and drooped and raised the nose in a salute to the 10,000 people who had turned up.

I stood in the Aviation Viewing Park for over 7 hours. But it was worth it. I guess you have similar memories.

I watched the final EVER landing, when AF returned to Filton, I was allowed to video it air to air on the approach and landing, to my eternal regret I have lost the footage.

Arrgghh! That must have been heart-breaking. :(
