VE

Hi Pilots as well as my VE Day stand to attention on the street this 11am, I've just flown Supermarine 308 and landed (well!!, maybe a bit of "wing-wobble") at Sywell EGBK (Northants, England) from Wolverhampton EGBO. Low cloud with variable visibility till 2000ft. Newly installed Orbx TerraFlora v2...

just cant get over this bird

Hi Pilots Weather fair and 29P arrived Belfast City (EGAC) next to famous docks across from Glasgow (EGPF). This has been a sublime experience; so realistic and immersive in the plane's detail. Always, always excited by this fantastic Comanche. Could still make further improvement on smoothness of l...

good sunny morning

Top o' the morn' to you all; pilots from all parts of our magic planet! xxBonanza'sxx, I mean Sandra, has just told me that the Welsh police have caught and fined English sneaking down B roads at night to get to their holiday homes in beautiful Wales. Good on the cops! Stunning! I've got no time for...

Re: Aerostar

"WOW! WOW! WOW!" Thank you Arturo for this link. Though not recently, I've seen this video a few times; well OVER AND OVER, if the truth be told. (I think the Youtube 'Flying Doodles' is great). This is no bird. It's a race horse! Carol tells us "it's as fast as a King Air, early model". I like the ...

it's a name-changer

Hi Pilots I confess I've been with (just) a few in my younger days but this "beaut" (N41G) is really something! A real mover with great looks; and a complex character, "to boot". Thick cloud and the occasional thunder-crack, 6000ft IFR, Durham-Tees EGNV to wonderful Orbx Edinburgh EGPH. I'm thinking...

just "where do you stick it?"

Hi Pilots no insult intended! And, respectfully of course, "where do you tell ATC to go?" Across misty and murky Irish Sea, IFR, just flown updated Cherokee N5673S Dublin (EIDW) to Ronaldsway, Isle of Man (EGNS). Super realism and immersion, like you're really flying it! On my monitor, the default '...

Time for a cup of Yorkshire tea

Hi Pilots just supping my Yorkshire tea after flight with perfect TG-KAT (recently updated and no mipmaps version); East Midlands EGNX to brand new and impressive Orbx Leeds-Bradford EGNM (full of detail, very satisfying). 4000 ft and autopilot, 155 kts 7deg C so Alt Air ON. Swaying and wriggling on...

Belfast Docks

Hi Pilots after departure from Scots island of Islay (wot no malt Whiskey?!), just smooth-landed wonderful N822JH at Glasgow City in scenic, tragic northern Ireland. Super Orbx scenery; clearish skies, sunset, 5degC so 'Carb Heat' ON, iconic Belfast docks, street lighting during landing (carb heat O...

T-6 and a swift half

Hi Pilots just landed Harvard at RAF Marham from Duxford (autopilot mid-phase, briefly) ; Orbx mist and wintry storm theme, P3D 4.5. Would've popped in for a "swift half" before flight at Duxford, Lewis, but dodgy experiences have taught me not to mix T-6 and alcohol. You really have to stay on the ...

Hi Pilots great New Year's flight D-EHVD Orbx Elstree Studios EGTR (London) to coastal Shoreham EGKA (Brighton) at 150kts and armed autopilot for scenic 4000ft; fair sky, frosty ground and landing from sea. This is just wonderful to have the chance to fly this terrific looking airplane; and so inter...

200+mph tonk

Hi Pilots just been for very satisfying escape to the skies and a 200+mph tonk in IIA Cardiff to Newquay EGHQ, Cornwall. Had the gun sight ON which helped me keep better level altitude than my usual yo-yo. Grand, classic and awesome. Nice smooth landing, let it land itself around 70 mph and less. Fa...

This afternoon/evening, Cherokee's off from EGAC Belfast City across Ireland to Donegal; in mist and clouds of course. Keep up this good maintenance and innovative work. Rod EGBB (non-s...

Re: DMMS - Defined Minimum Maneuvering Speed

Many thanks for sending us this valuable and charismatic link on DMMS. Sorry for slow but well deserved reply. I can imagine the tendency to rescue the yolk towards the body or at least to hesitate before the bolder life-saving push of yolk away to recover/increase much needed pre-stall speed. Not f...
