I have done some research on Google and I have not been able to locate an FSX PMDG Boeing 737-300 livery for Southwest Airlines with Winglets.

PMDG does not make a 733

Additionally, I have not been able to find the new livery for the PMDG Boeing 737-800...

With a simple avsim search for "Heart One" the new livery for the NGX

Your welcome

Figured I might as well take a swing at it....I voted for the current logo, but if this could be considered it is my vote (style 1). I can send over the PSD to the logo and star if needed.

Style 1:
[img]\\\" border=\\\"0\\\" class=\\\"linked-image\\\" /]

Style 2:
[img]\\\" border=\\\"0\\\" class=\\\"linked-image\\\" /]

the star, but larger...could be used as an icon/favicon stuff like that.

[img]\\\" border=\\\"0\\\" class=\\\"linked-image\\\" /]

That's awesome... I'm changing my vote to Ryan's

I hope the changes don't include bootstrap.... Bootstrap is becoming the norm and it's not different

Alright Brandon


I have over 5 years experience in training for flight schools. If you look at AIM 3-4-6. The airspace is just west of KFLL is an Alert Area.

Again, training is very difficult from the virtual aspect for pilots. When your in the left seat of a real airplane, you have control from the situation. With the virtual side, you have other factors that have to be achieve in order to get the exact conditions and movements you want the student to learn. Like the flare. Another difficult subject for example is energy management. The lowest landing rates is not a win for virtual aviation. In fact, this may result in approach-and-landing accidents, such as: loss of control, landing short, hard landing, tail strike, runway excursion; and/or, runway overrun. Which is what we see in VATSIM and VAs daily.

Also, (no offense to ZMA and ZJX) but when it's sunny and 75 with light winds for over 300 days a year in Florida, then yes it's easy and fun. Try different parts of the USA for the experience.

As a side note, if something doesn't work the first time, don't try it again. Basic business principles.

Hello Alex,

Training is a delicate process, for both the pilot and the controller. Using bigger airports for training can easily overwhelm the student and discourage him/her from continuing training. You should use smaller airports in smaller ARTCC (i.e Guam). Also, the so called "Flight Training Areas" are actually called Practice areas and can not be found on any chart. Just by this post, I can easily tell that this is your first time at providing flight training. Why don't you gain experience at a proper ATO and then maybe try giving instruction when your a little more knowledgeable. OR be like most kids on here and try to act like you have multiple licenses to teach. Oh wait, you have to be 18 to get a FAA CFI. I guess that might throw a little curve ball in your plans. Something that might also throw a little curve ball in your plan is the mere fact that having no experience in teaching flying to anyone is a huge lost to your cause. Again, gain the experience before you jump off this bridge again.

I also have most of your former instructors and staff. Sorry

Rant over...
