Flight Log – Flying Home

March 14th, 2011 · No Comments · Gaming

It was nice to stretch my virtual wings again for the first time in two weeks and also finally make a trip back to Monmouth-Executive Airport (KBLM) which is the airfield nearest to my house and thus my “home field”. Since KBLM is only 13.3nm away from my last destination (3N6 Old Bridge) and my […]

Flight Log – Crisscrossing The Delaware

February 20th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Gaming

Today’s flight log is available here. Saturday saw winds gusting upwards of 50mph, so there was no chance I was taking up a little Cessna in that, especially when trying to land at small rural fields. Today was forecasted to be better, but winds wouldn’t start dying down until later in the day and then […]

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 – KBLM to KMMU

September 15th, 2010 · No Comments · Gaming

Such beautiful weather this evening, couldn’t resist seeing the sun setting from the air. I also wanted to take the Jet Ranger into Manhattan tomorrow, so I had to get back to an airport that gave me access to helicopter services. I originally planned to head back to Teterboro (KTEB) but I realized that another […]

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 […]

Flight Log – Sunrise jaunt

August 28th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Gaming

It’s been quite a while since I’ve logged any time flying. Mainly because I’ve been playing other games, also because after upgrading from XP to W7 late last year I never got around to fully getting FSX set back up and running. But now everything is back in working order again, finally – so I […]

Flight Log – 4N1 to KBLM

October 16th, 2009 · No Comments · Gaming

Today’s flight was completing the loop I started two weeks ago when I took off from KBLM and traveled south down the New Jersey coast to Cape May for an arrival at KWWD. Now that I’m way up in north Jersey right by the New York border, I needed to get back to KBLM but […]

Flight Log – KPHL to 4N1

October 10th, 2009 · 1 Comment · Gaming

This time out I hopped into a Mooney Bravo because I had a lot of ground to cover, and the Mooney cruises at 160 kts while the Cessna 172 cruises at only 100 kts. The flight plan called for a departure from KPHL (where I arrived yesterday), then I would follow the Delaware River Northeast […]

Flight Log – KBLM to KWWD

October 3rd, 2009 · 2 Comments · Gaming

It was cloudy, dreary and rainy outside today, but the best thing about a flight simulator is that you can choose to ignore the real weather if you want to. Certainly you can set FSX to pull down and then update current meteorological conditions, but then who wants to fly in rainy weather when they […]
