Flight Log – Windy Days

January 15th, 2012 · No Comments · Gaming

Here is the flight plan for this trip. Leg 1: KVAY – NJ84 It was a blustery day yesterday according to the weather reports, so the first thing I did after finishing my pre-flight checklist on the tarmac of KVAY in the Cessna 172S was taxi on over to the pump to top off the […]

Flight Log – Day to Night. Night to Day

January 8th, 2012 · No Comments · Gaming

Ahhh my first flight of 2012! Also my first flight since the start of November, yikes. Reminded me why the FAA mandates check rides every few months for proficiency, especially considering some of the mistakes I made on this flight. Thankfully I was able to run my computer at 4.5GHz again after accidentally wiping out […]

Flight Log – Fair Weather Flying

November 10th, 2011 · No Comments · Gaming

Yea so it’s been a while since I’ve gone on a planned flight – and even this flight I’m blogging now actually took place back on October 22nd! Besides my airport scenery development I’ve also been busy getting started as an AVSIM staff reviewer – I’ve already written two reviews and will be working on […]

Flight Log – Freeware Flying

July 25th, 2011 · No Comments · Gaming

So since I was on a break from airport development the past few weeks and thus had no new airports to fly to, I decided it was time to go through and check out the many freeware aircraft I had downloaded months ago all at once as I troved various download sites. They had been […]

Flight Log – Crank it up!

June 21st, 2011 · 1 Comment · Gaming

This past Saturday I finally took the time to overclock my i5 2500K CPU to 4.5GHz, which is an extra 1.2GHz past stock speed. I started off by trying the auto-overclock button that’s on my motherboard, but after rebooting the computer and entering Windows, things locked up almost immediately. So I turned to the trusty […]

Flight Log – Dodging Bad Weather

June 12th, 2011 · 2 Comments · Gaming

So the weather was a bit rough today, cloud ceiling as low as 800 feet in some areas and no higher than 1500′ pretty much everywhere. I’m still not ready to bother with IFR procedures so I took the easy way out and climbed into the helicopter so I could stay VFR and be comfortable […]

Flight Log – Down and Around

June 5th, 2011 · 1 Comment · Gaming

I was disappointed that I screwed up my departure time for my last flight and couldn’t take off with the sunrise so I decided to try again for this one. Sort of succeeded – I ended up getting a bit too caught up in playing Dragon Age 2 to get set up in time!! Figures. […]

Flight Log – Memorial Day Fly

May 31st, 2011 · 2 Comments · Gaming, Personal

Wow has it really been just under 2 months since I’ve last flown?? Yikes I’m afraid so! Luckily in that space of time I’ve still been really productive, churning out over a dozen new airports for MSE Airports and also getting nominated for an AVSIM Reader’s Choice Award in freeware scenery. I don’t expect to […]

Flight Log – Back to the country

April 3rd, 2011 · 3 Comments · Gaming

Last weekend didn’t work out so well for a flight. I did fly, but it was just a small flight in the Dodo that I just had to do after spending almost 2.5 hours getting FSX to run again after it randomly corrupted a file on me. I loaded it up all the way into […]

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 […]
