November 23rd, 2013 · No Comments · Gaming

I got bored of lounging at the beach so decided to check the FBO over at the airport to see if there were any charter flights available. Turns out a family of three that just arrived in port on a cruise ship were looking to meet up with some friends aboard a private yacht arriving […]

The Cleveland scenery package includes a nuclear power plant that has a heli pad, so for this flight I role played as a charter pilot who was hired to ferry a nuclear inspector to the plant for an unscheduled spot check. The inspector arrived from Washington D.C. on a private jet and then transferred over […]

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 – 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 – 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
