Dear PC Pilot
I am a subscriber to PC Pilot, which reminds me I must renew today.
Whilst I am a PPL holder, I am interested in learning the intricacies of flying heavy metal.
One of the most important functions is obviously learning the ins out outs of the FMC (Flight Management Computer).
This started when HARS (Historical Aircraft Restoration Society), based at Wollongong Airport (YWOL), Australia, was gifted ex Qantas 747- 438 VH-OJA on the 8th March 2015.
Being a long-time member of HARS, now an ex Committee member, I was approached to take over as Project Manager to ensure her well-being, so to speak, and to develop tours etc to show her off in all her glory to the public. Qantas decided to remove the aircraft’s FMC software, for propriety reasons… fair enough.
