Flight Log – Tropic Thunder

November 26th, 2013 · No Comments · Gaming

For my last flight of the year I wanted to make it to the Bahamas so that next year I could launch on a grand tour of the islands as I continued to move south in the Caribbean. My chosen destination for this was Nassau, given that it hosts the largest airport and that airport […]

Flight Log – Slow Going

October 27th, 2013 · No Comments · Gaming

I realized two things when planning for my next flight. First was that down in the Bahamas I saw fall-colored trees on the islands. These went away at the start of November and were replaced with proper green foliage. The second was remembering that the scenery that comes with Buffalo, Cleveland, Detroit, and Chicago is […]

Flight Log – FedEx Delivery

October 24th, 2013 · No Comments · Gaming

Was looking for more things to do around the Buffalo/Niagara areas and realized that one of the airports that was done for the photoscenery was actually owned by the Eurocopter company (CNJ3). I had the Nemeth Designs Eurocopter AS-355 Ecureuil II in my library from a sale on PCAviator that I had only used for […]

Flight Log – Mountain Roller Coaster Ride

October 17th, 2013 · No Comments · Gaming

This took a few days to happen thanks to the weather, and even still when I climbed into the cockpit it was with the expectation that I would probably be turning around after my first planned leg, but there was a chance things would clear up enough for me to continue on by then. Wind […]

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 – Medical Emergency

May 15th, 2013 · No Comments · Gaming

Having not flown since January, it was high time I got some stick time on something, and I figured the best way to do that would be to role play a bit with a scenario that didn’t require a ton of pre-flight planning (other than designing the small bit of extra scenery needed) and where […]

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 – Diversion

September 10th, 2012 · No Comments · Gaming

I recently took a second look at Plan-G, which is a freeware VFR flight planning tool built for FSX. I had checked it out originally a year or so ago but felt it was too much extra trouble to learn and use when I really didn’t need any complex flight planning tools – I mean […]

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 […]
