I haven't seen any posts about this lately, can't find any worthwhile information on the search function and the link I have for it is no longer active.

Anybody know if it is still available?

I have the old AEP version, but its a bit out of date. u can have that if u want

excellent program.

ps. I was briefly in Blairgowrie a few weeks ago- on my way to the wilds of Aberdeenshire and a godforsaken place called Buckie!

Many thanks guys. I now have it downloaded.

And dazza. If you went through Blairgowrie you probably saw me hanging on to the post. This was taken a couple of months ago when I visted the UK after 30 years of banishment to the colonies.

The weather looks far too good! I went through in typical Scottish rain- think we brought the clouds from glasgow.

nevermind though i brightened up my colleague's trip by displaying some exhillarating rally driving over the cairngorms in a company car. Im sure that look of panic was simply enjoyment!

It says it is for PF version 3.03. Most stuff covered...
Downloading it now, thanks guys for reminder, I lost it some time ago during hard disk partitioning (accident delete http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif).

I`ve been using this great tool since it first came out, so thnx Hardball!

One thing strikes me though;
when 2 planes are compared to each other, and you hit " show advantages", you get things like : plane x speed @6200m 675 Km/h vs. plane y @7100m 688 Km/h..
Same for climbrates: x to 5300m, 6.9s vs. y to 6700m, 5.5s..

Why aren`t these factors alike, i mean climb to SAME altitude, speed at SAME altitude?

Anyone know?

Thnx

And what should that altitude be? See?
You can compare them only at sea level. It says 6.9min to 6700m because 6700m is at about its optimal performance and that's where it wants to climb. If it were a Yak there wouldn't be any point measuring how long it will take to climb to 6700m, since it would probably want to stay at something like 4000m, where its performance is better.

OK, thnx for your answer, makes good sense...
Does this however mean that when an advantage is given , say for speed, that at the same altitude, this speed advantage may not be accurate anymore?

Just trying to understand...

why is it you are the one banished, and we have to suffer for it? The colonies are ready for you to go back home! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Oh, you again.

You are just jealous because you have been unable to get a passport.
