Flight Log – Quarry Disaster

November 1st, 2013 · 1 Comment · Gaming

So I wasn’t able to fly on Thursday, however since the flight I had planned would take place within a relatively small area I could use REX’s archive weather feature to load up weather for a given time of day and fly with that. So I found some decent yet not-perfect conditions late in the […]

Flight Log – Day Trip

October 29th, 2013 · No Comments · Gaming

So the good news regarding my throttle quadrant issue from the last flight is that it’s not broken. I noticed the same issue when I swapped it for my newer quadrant and that led me to think of other problems, which eventually made me realize that one of the adjustable controls on my X52 HOTAS […]

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 – World Trade Center 2

July 13th, 2012 · No Comments · Gaming

As I mentioned in my last flight log, this morning I hopped into the Dodosim Bell 206B and took off from the Downtown Wall Street Heliport (KJRB) to circle closer around the World Trade Center. No problems there – the wind was calm and conditions were clear around the city so after circling the WTC […]

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 – 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 – 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 – 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 […]
