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 – 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 – 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 […]

Flight Log – NYC Chopperin 3

January 5th, 2013 · No Comments · Gaming

Finally got around to finishing the flight I started last time I took to the air with the Bell 222B. That flight was interrupted after I landed at KJRA and the program crashed out on me. Because I had to reload back at KJRB, I decided to swing around the city and just head straight […]

Flight Log – NYC Chopperin 2

December 22nd, 2012 · 1 Comment · Gaming

I recently decided to take advantage of a windfall in income to snap up some FSX add-ons, both scenery and aircraft. We’ll get to the scenery some other time as well as other aircraft because right now I’m just focusing on one, the CeraSim Bell 222B. I’ve had my eye out for a good-quality Bell […]

Flight Log: A Jaunt

November 21st, 2012 · No Comments · Gaming

Plan-G flight plan (right-click Save As) Today I finally managed to get everything together for a flight. It’s been hard lately with so much work I’ve been doing between coaching, GameDev.net, MSE Airports and most recently airport design for FranceVFR. Not to mention occasional stunt jobs and pyrotechnical work. Another thing keeping me back was […]
