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: 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 […]

Flight Log – Stay Awake

June 11th, 2012 · No Comments · Gaming

With a couple of early mornings coming up and being on a schedule of falling asleep around 3-4am I needed to reboot my sleep period and the way I do that is to simply stay up through to the next day as long as possible. Since as I start getting more and more tired my […]

Flight Log – Unplanned Excursion

March 26th, 2012 · No Comments · Gaming

Here is the flight plan for this trip. Today I woke up early – way way early. Like, before the sun had risen early. Bleh. So to make up for it I decided to boot up the sim and hop into a plane and fly somewhere. No idea what or where I just loaded things […]

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 – 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 – 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 […]
