Flight Log – Mountain Roller Coaster Ride

October 17th, 2013 · No Comments · Gaming

This took a few days to happen thanks to the weather, and even still when I climbed into the cockpit it was with the expectation that I would probably be turning around after my first planned leg, but there was a chance things would clear up enough for me to continue on by then. Wind […]

Flight Log – Mountain Hop

October 12th, 2013 · No Comments · Gaming

Time to complete the trip I began on my last flight when I was forced to divert due to weather. The plan was simple – just depart north out of K09, tune into the Glens Falls VOR and gradually head east until I intercepted the 190 radial which would take me in for a direct […]

Flight Log – To the Mountains

October 11th, 2013 · No Comments · Gaming

So my original plan after Buffalo was to continue working my way west and head towards Chicago. But then I up and purchased FS Global ULTIMATE – The Americas as I have mostly flown with nothing but default MSFS mesh (the only exception being a 5m mesh over parts of northern NJ). So with some […]

Flight Log – Niagara Tour

October 10th, 2013 · No Comments · Gaming

Weather was turning crappy at home (Nor’easter that’s here now was on the way back on Monday when this flight took place) but up in Buffalo they were having some nice weather so I hopped into the Bell 206B from last time and took another flight around Niagara and Buffalo but in the daylight this […]

Flight Log – Pattern Practice

September 10th, 2013 · No Comments · Gaming

That horrible landing from my last flight really bothered me (despite the fact that it’s been a year IRL since I landed that aircraft), so I hopped back into the cockpit to do some pattern work this afternoon. At first I was a bit put off by the high-wind advisory I saw on weather.com but […]

Flight Log – VFR Long Haul

September 8th, 2013 · No Comments · Gaming

I can’t believe it’s been an entire year since I last flew the V35B. What the hell. Where has the time gone? This really puts things in perspective and makes me want to try to get back to spending some more time flying in the sim, especially since I recently upgraded my graphics card from […]

Flight Log – NYPD Patrol

August 2nd, 2013 · No Comments · Gaming

I made a day-one purchase of Drzewiecki  Design’s New York City X product, which I had been salivating over for months, and ended up with a scenery add-on that brought my computer to its knees with the dreaded Out Of Memory error, which is what happens when too much is loaded into FSX at once […]

Flight Log – Medical Emergency

May 15th, 2013 · No Comments · Gaming

Having not flown since January, it was high time I got some stick time on something, and I figured the best way to do that would be to role play a bit with a scenario that didn’t require a ton of pre-flight planning (other than designing the small bit of extra scenery needed) and where […]

Flight Log – Hit The Deck

January 12th, 2013 · No Comments · Gaming

Took a new livery of the Bell 222B out from Lincoln Park (N07) this morning. I knew the weather was hanging low and hazy but decided to see how it went and just turn around and cancel the flight if I needed to. Gotta love the price of virtual AVGas – nothing! I started the […]

Flight Log – Turbulence

January 9th, 2013 · No Comments · Gaming

At last, I made time to climb back into the good old 172 and head out from Trenton-Robbinsville (N87) up north to Lincoln Park (N07). I’ve been planning to do this for over a month now, ever since I finally finished off Lincoln Park back at the end of November last year. Today wasn’t the […]
