PF3 already supports 'Request direct to...' a waypoint in your flight plan
Roger, but I don't think that will help if I want to temporarily divert from the filed plan to fly around bad weather.

But on that subject: I would be cool if PF3 were to issue directs by itself, maybe when traffic is thin. Just a suggestion, for when the really important stuff is done ;)

i have noticed that some times ATC descent command is lot later than what FMC requires you to start descent. I know in real life it does happen depending on weather and traffic. In real life usually pilot informs ATC that they are ready for descent and then ATC either ask them to do that or keep them in cruise for little longer. Currently in PF3 we can ask for lower altitude but not request descent. Is it possible to add that feature in future?
Best wishes
Ash

I just spend a week flying with PF3 what a charm, very good ATC software. I am glad I tried it. The only new feature I would like to see is an option to deviate due to weather. The 'direct to' option doesn't always do the trick, you are still having to fly in the storm. If we could have a parallel flight option from the flight plan, say we could follow the fly plan on a 30 nm on the right or the left to avoid a storm. That would be very nice.

Hi

Would it be possible to get the runway assignment when contacting clearance?
Would help deciding which way to face the jet after push back.

Thanks

The general procedure is for ATC to clear you to push back tail left/right, nose left/right or facing North/South etc. You will only get the active runway when you report ready to taxi. Which is what already happens in PF3.The option of advising the crew which way to face at pushback has already been brought up. The problem is though that the voice set doesn't cover it very well. And, being an extra feature it's not something that can be done very quickly.
I would suggest that you look carefully at the airport chart to determine which way to face. I know that it can be a problem at complex airports. In which case if I get it wrong I plan an "escape" route if the taxi feature doesn't work. Also you don't have to taxi to the very last holding point either. I quite often jump the queue and press hotkey 6 at the holding point I arrive at.

Dave,
How easy would it be to allow the user to choose the output playback device that PF3 uses. If one has say Speakers as the default playback device, but also has USB headphones as a separate device
Yeah, I second that one.
This feature already is on the wishlist in the Beta Forum and I bumped that up again.

It will be looked at.

Until then you can try the freeware "Audiorouter" (you will find it via google). That program is quite buggy though and it may or may not work for you but you can give it a try.

Hi
And sorry for my english again
Please let me introduce two feature request:
1. i wonder if it's possible to add feature to request ATC to go on alternate airports eg in ETOPS operation (or enroute alternate)
Yesterday I flown in ETOPS rule flight and I have engine failure just behind iceland and I need divert to ETOPS alternate (BIKF). But it's not possible to request ATC to direct to airport
2. Second request is add abbility to request ATC divert left or right from current track due the weather or traffic

Best regards
Grzegorz
