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 […]

FSX Heli Traffic

October 17th, 2012 · 1 Comment · Gaming

Manhattan Heli Traffic Information Page I spent a week learning how to utilize the payware FSX add-on Heli Traffic 2009, which I felt was a bit pricey at first but now feel it was money well spent. Beyond figuring out how to use the add-on itself was the challenge of creating my own schedules for […]

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 – Ferry Services

January 22nd, 2011 · No Comments · Gaming

So the conundrum with today’s flight was – how do I get my Cessna back? I left it up at 4N1 when I took the helicopter down to Manhattan. I suppose I could just chopper it back up there and grab it, but that’s not really exciting. Instead I decided to do a good deed […]

Flight Log – H43 to KFRG

October 16th, 2010 · No Comments · Gaming

Although the winds were pretty rough today, I decided it was otherwise to beautiful to past up a chance to get some flight time in. Thanks to a Nor’easter that just passed through the previous day, winds were pretty wicked – we’re receiving gusts of up to 40mph – sometimes even 50! I’m looking out […]

Flight Log – Down and Up the Hudson

October 13th, 2010 · No Comments · Gaming

  So I’ve been spending the majority of my free time these past few weeks designing scenery rather than flying. Although the satellite scenery I’m using for the NJ/NY/MA/RI area is awesome, it’s a bit of a double-edged sword when it comes to airports. See, the default FSX airports are not designed to match the […]

Flight Log – Long Island Loop

September 19th, 2010 · No Comments · Gaming

Wow, awesome flight today! It happened in two parts. First part was lifting off from KMMU to fly into the city. I got lost leaving the airport and couldn’t find Route 10 to take me to Route 280 (Heli chart for reference) so I had to turn around, go back to the airport and upon […]

Flight Log – Crashing Around Manhattan

September 16th, 2010 · 1 Comment · Gaming

Today was Jet Ranger vs. Manhattan, and the final score ended up being 8-2, meaning 8 landings and 2 crashes. Let’s go to the play-by-play. The trip began at Morristown Municipal (KMMU) and I flew into the city along Routes 10 and 280 – you can reference the NYC Heli chart here. My first stop […]

Flight Log – Midnight Manhattan Shenanigans

September 11th, 2010 · No Comments · Gaming

I decided to take one more flight around Manhattan (for now) – the only problem was that my plans to do so during sunset were ruined when I got called in to coach at the gym, and by the time I was able to fly it was just past midnight. Obviously there are sound abatement […]

Flight Log – Manhattan Heli – Success!

September 6th, 2010 · No Comments · Gaming

After my last attempt to pilot a helicopter around Manhattan ended with me in the Hudson due to an engine failure, I decided it was time to try again. That, and it was a beautiful day out and I had some time where I knew I (probably, most likely) wouldn’t be interrupted. So I got […]
