Re: A question about the Lockheed Constellation

Cannot say the time for the Atlantic, but the Pacific is a tale of the two winds . Going west (to the Far East) you are fighting head winds the whole way. From Travis AFB in California, we flew (USAF C-121 Connie) to Honolulu, refueled, flew to Midway Island, refueled, flew to Wake Island, refueled ...

Re: Flying Via A2A Video

Although you cannot fly an A2A aircraft during this, many of the questions you ask are answered in the FSX (box version) Learning Center , under the Lessons tab. They use a generic FSX C172 for the training classes, but there is nothing stopping you from doing further training in an A2A aircraft aft...

Re: FS2020

Two attempted flights since the install today of update 1.9.3.......Both resulted in CTD about 7 minutes after takeoff. Two different aircraft, KARR to KPIA, clear sky, no real wind, nothing funny. Did notice that the mouse changed 'habits'. I went to zoom in on the altitude knob and the mouse acted...

Good to hear. Recover can be lengthy from what I hear. Be careful.

Re: sick

Greg. That wouldn't have happened if you wore a mask when you were kissing those trees on your last flight. Or was that for the bird flu? :lol: Seriously..... Take care of yourself Bud. Get yourself to the hospital on the first signs of anything you even suspect or cannot explain off easily. Frequen...

Re: Cherokee Paint request

Hey Ron,

OP must really be interested. I sent him a PM that day and haven't heard a peep back. 3CK is only a couple miles away but maybe the internet between there and here is worse than between you and I.

Hi Dudley,

Welcome 'Home'. Just remember, this is your primary hobby, finding Doctor's offices is secondary. Been there, done that.

Re: Has anyone done a pre-purchase on the new Microsoft FS 2020?

Hi Dudley, Pre-purchased mine a couple weeks back. Yes, as others have said, you must have a Microsoft account. I have had mine since Windows 10 also. The biggest issue is that you need to pay up front. They will want your email address as well. I have PayPal so that was not a big issue. Here is a l...

Re: MSFS 2020 Paint Kits

It would appear that you are correct. He entered '18' at the 10 minute mark and when the plane is on the runway at 14:53 in the video, the registration is '18'. However, the question still stands as there are too many interesting paint configurations for these aircraft to be stuck with what M$ issue...

MSFS 2020 Paint Kits

Has anyone heard or read anything about repaint kits for the new fleet of birds? From the M$ ads, all the birds have the same tail number and none start with an 'N' or other countries.

Re: Preventative maintenance on flaps

Be sure to watch for missing nuts (including the one in the FBO hangar) when the flaps get loose.

Re: Preventative maintenance on flaps

If/when I notice that (slow and quieter on pre-flight), I roll over to the hangar and have my friendly A&E take a look. If he throws a caution, they get changed out there. Haven't had one fail in flight since starting that practice. Like you, I try to be gentle on them, especially full flap on short...

Re: Yet another topic about MSFS2020

Throwing some mud into the game....What makes you (anyone) think that the current FSX birds won't fly in MSFS2020? Remembering back to the switch between FS9 and FSX and even further back, we were for the most part, able to convert the then 'purchased' birds into the new sim. As an A2A flyer, the on...

Re: Please disregard this request for help. :D

Yep ! And you have a choice of two. Flight 1 makes a 750, actually they make a 650 and a 750, that will work very well and Reality XP does the same. I have them both and have less problems with the Flight 1 and use it more often. One word of caution. Be SURE to do the updates if and when you purcha...
