      Proper Problem Reporting for the TFDi Design 717   07/09/2017

      Folks, As the user count is increasing, it is becoming more of a task for us to stay on top of problem reports. We are also receiving an increasing amount of incomplete reports that we are unable to follow up on (which frustrates everyone, us included). On that note, we are going to be enforcing a stricter formal problem reporting system. There are a few main points that need to be addressed. ALL problem reports must be submitted via the Bugs and Suggestions system. Open discussion on the forums is fine, but our team simply cannot respond to every single comment (especially when the majority of doing so is asking for information the Bugs and Suggestions system already asks for). Incomplete reports will be ignored. This means reports like "my FPS is bad" will not be given weight. This isn't because we don't care. It is because a report like that does absolutely nothing for anyone - we can't fix it based on that. Please include EVERYTHING you can possibly think of regarding the problem and take as many steps as you can to isolate it. Prepar3D v4, despite what you have heard, can still be unstable. Yes, it is definitely possible to fly flights without issues. But it is still relatively new, as are most of the addons available for it. Please refrain from attacking us or other developers because of this. We have already had one scenario where a 717 CTD was resolved by an update to Prepar3D itself. This is likely not the only time that will be the case. You are still free to report the crashes, as it may help whoever the developers of the faulting code are solve the issue. Duplicate reports will be deleted/merged. For the sake of sanity for us trying to prioritize and evaluate issues, if we discover multiple reports of the same thing, we may merge/delete the duplicates. We strongly encourage you to search and see if your problem has been reported before. Thank you all in advance. This may seem overbearing, but this is the only way we are going to be able to stay on top and continue heading in the direction we, and the community, want.

717 Operations Manual

Recommended Posts

The documentation that comes with the product is detailed enough to perform a flight but is lacking any detailed info on systems, procedures etc.

I keep searching Google hoping to come across one and this one keeps popping up.

http://www.esscoaircraft.com/p-13538-boeing-717-200-operations-manual.aspx

$100 is a bit steep for me but I don't think I'm the only person who would be interested in owning one.

I was thinking about setting up a crowdfunding page so anyone who would be interested in having a copy could put forward say a couple of dollars and when we reach $100 we could purchase the digital version and everyone (who put forward) gets a copy.

Good idea? Bad idea? Would you be interested?

Thanks for the link. I picked up volume 1-4 of the 717 Manual, the Air Tran AOM, and the 717 MCDU manual.

I found it.  Thank you.  This is a great source.  They have all kind of different manuals.

Here is the most direct link:  http://www.mycockpit.org/forums/downloads.php?do=cat&id=6&page=3

You have to register to see the downloads. I had registered previously and forgot about it.
