RE: Ambergris cay airport in the Caicos

Looks Great and I'm puttering around down there now and can't find this one in "The Caicos" ???

There is an "Ambergris Caye" over by Belize ?

As an 'Old Dinosaur' from the days of the original "Misty Moorings", I just wanted to take a minute to say "Thanks" for the countless hours of enjoyment M.M. and R.T.M.M  has provided for me over the years.

However, I do have one suggestion. 

Please move the "Donation" link from the bottom, to the TOP of the Homepage so I'll remember to offer some 'Payback' once in a while for all the amazing content here that I use and for what must go into maintaining a site like this.

You Folks ARE 'The Best'

Thanks !

Not a problem Norm.  Don't worry about it.  Just thought I'd let you know how it went FYI.

I did BID on the next leg #12, I needed to fly, but it never showed as 'Completed' after I flew it, so I just went and BID on the next legs individually. 

I figured it maybe had something to do with it changing the aircraft I had originally started the tour with.

For some reason Cigar Box picked up the last (Non-Tour) aircraft I flew (my new Otter) and assumed I would be using it on the Tour now.

I think your 'Program' may have developed A.I. and is starting to 'Think' for itself.  LMAO

Tour completed: MFC0022 on 20/05/09
re: Rick L. MFC0008

Finally went back to complete this Tour. However, my 'Aircraft' somehow changed to a DHC Otter from my original C-47/DC3 ??? I think C.B. likes my new Otter.

None of the flights showed up as "completed" in the Tour Reg. ??
Cigar Box shut down on one leg so I had to re-fly it and lost an hour.

All that having been said... finally got 'er DONE ! LOL

What "Towers" ?   ;)    Nice Video !

Was kinda disappointed with the Milviz Otter straight out of the 'Box', but I resolved some of the issues by adding a few Pop-ups. ( PDF, autopilot and GPS. )

Now, if I could figure out how to get it to work properly with my GF-TQ6, it would be a 9/10.

Kudos to Gregory Goodwin and all the guys who contributed to The Bahamas Airports Scenery package. 

Great work !  Really looking forward to the next part.   

P.S.  Used my brand new "Carenado Turbo Commander" to get there and back (today).  The Otter is TOOOO slow for the 'Long-Haul' ;) 

FYI... Airport 61FD "Chalk's Key West" is at the most westerly point in the Florida Keys. 

Stay 'Safe' and 'Healthy'

Help and Troubleshooting / Milviz Otter Issue
« on: March 31, 2020, 09:53:35 AM »
Got the Milviz Otter loaded and painted in "Misty" colors. but having an issue with my GoFlight TQ6 throttle levers not 'mapping. (only lever working properly is "mixture")

Checked a bunch of other forums and found that it's apparently a problem with the XMLTools64.DLL.
but haven't found a way to fix it.

Hoping that maybe someone here that's encountered it has found a fix.


P.S.  Re-loaded the XMLTools64.DLL, (Milviz forum)  but it did not fix the issue. Research continues.

Nice shots !

Reminds me of how much 'Fun' it was loading and unloading drums of Avgas.  LOL

Not surprised to hear that there's maybe only 1 Otter left with the old R1340 power plant. 

Like their Little Brother, The Beaver, They're AMAZING when converted to turbine power and No more 'Blown Jugs'!

Thanks for Sharing that !

I'm an 'Old' retired guy that lives 30 minutes from Selkirk Manitoba, the home of Northway Aviation.

I spent many years and too many hours flying all over northern Manitoba in Beavers, turbo Beavers, The Otter and finally, the turbo Otter. 

Now I fly them on a computer with a cup of coffee and NO Blackflies or Mosquitos. 

Life WAS and IS GOOD !  8)

AMAZING work !   

Can these be logged as "Charters" in the M.F.Club ?

Thanks Norm

I thought that was going to be the 'Answer'.

So, unfortunately, if you're doing a Charter Flight like I was yesterday and Cigar Box 'Freezes' during the flight; there is no way to log that time.   :(

Well, Ce La Vie + hopefully Cigar Box will not fail me again.   8)
