Flight Log – Weather Wise

February 13th, 2011 · No Comments · Gaming

I made three major changes to my flying on this trip: Logging flight time. I’m not going to actively log hours, as right now that is entirely meaningless for me, but I have started getting into a habit of sticking to a flight schedule. This is because 1) at some point in my virtual aviator […]

Flight Log – Airplanes Aren’t Lawn Darts

February 6th, 2011 · 5 Comments · Gaming

This past week I developed 4 small private turf field airports. What’s notable about them all is I realized that I didn’t need to use an actual runway for them. There’s no AI traffic flying in and out of these airfields so the sim won’t care if there’s no actual hard-surfaced runway on them. And […]

Flight Log – Airport Hopping

October 18th, 2010 · No Comments · Gaming

For this flight I decided I was going to fly in and out of some of the airports I’ve been designing recently to get some use out of them. I also decided I was going to finally start paying attention to check lists. FSX has a “kneeboard” you can call up in flight to see […]

Flight Log – Military Maneuvers 2

September 24th, 2010 · No Comments · Gaming

  It was back in the cockpit of military aircraft today, starting with the AgustaWestland AW101 chopper and then moving back to the MV-22 Osprey. Weather at McGuire AFB (KWRI) wasn’t the best, extremely low ceiling prevented VFR conditions from being in effect, so ATC denied my request to take off without an IFR plan […]

Flight Log – Military Maneuvers

September 23rd, 2010 · No Comments · Gaming

  It was always my plan, once I reached McGuire AFB (KWRI), to hop into the cockpit of the F/A-18 for a joyride, however the other weekend PC Aviator had a 24-hour sale that dropped the price of one of their store items way down – it was the Virtavia MV-22 Osprey, the military version […]

Flight Log – Crashing Around Manhattan

September 16th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Gaming

Today was Jet Ranger vs. Manhattan, and the final score ended up being 8-2, meaning 8 landings and 2 crashes. Let’s go to the play-by-play. The trip began at Morristown Municipal (KMMU) and I flew into the city along Routes 10 and 280 – you can reference the NYC Heli chart here. My first stop […]

Flight Log – Fixed Wing and Rotor Wing

September 14th, 2010 · No Comments · Gaming

So today I decided not to wait for good weather to fly and just go out in whatever conditions presented. Turned out that things were a bit crummy around where I was flying, but not horribly so. I began at Martha’s Vinyard (KMVY), where I last flew this past weekend. Such a beautiful place – […]

Flight Log – Manhattan Heli… Splash!

August 29th, 2010 · No Comments · Gaming

This morning I was up early again and had some time to kill before the day’s planned activities, so I decided to hop into the Cessna 172 to fly up north to an airport that could give me a chopper to take over Manhattan later on in the day. Consulting Sky Vector, I found that […]
