Let's see....on 7/7....I flew a Bonanza 35 from PHX to San Diego.... Stopped there for a bit, then flew on up to Oxnard after a short circuit of downtown San Diego.... By then it was getting dark, so I was able to enjoy the LA city lights as I headed east, concluding my flight in Palm Springs. Most memorable part of the flight was passing by LAX @ 4000 ft between San Diego and Oxnard... Looked uncannily real!

No flying yet today for me..... I've been working. But over the holiday I started a trip from the Avsim Bush scenery up to Anchorage in my Seabee. Lovely rugged country up there. The SeaBee isn't the speediest bird, but it can land just about anyplace.I'm taking the trip in easy stages; locating and landing at various bush strips along the way. Hopefully I'll reach Anchorage tonight. If not tonight, then tomorrow for us.-Lindy :-wave (strictly small plane and in-training chopper pilot)

I flew a 737-400 out of Paro, Bhutan (VQPR) to Tribhuvan, Nepal (VNKT) as part of a round the world trip. Paro has a runway length of 6,512, the snag is not only is it at the bottom of a deep valley but for good measure the runway is in a

Great idea for a post. We should have one a week for posting your best flight of the week. I took the FSD Cheyenne out to test my new yoke mounted timer with some instrument proficiency training. I took off from RW 09 at Henry E. Rohlsen in St Croix USVI. Off to the east to fly over the St Croix VOR and then into holding on the 077 radial. I did a teardrop entry and using my new countdown timer I flew 5 laps in holding at 2400ft admiring the view of this tropical island paradise and then returned to the field for an ILS to RW09. The procedure turn was a snap and then I hand flew (as I always do) the glideslope right down to 311ft decision height and set her down a little fast and slightly long but right on centerline. Love this hobby and this plane!http://members.shaw.ca/madamo/Avsim_sig_KP.jpg

I took an easy flight for my VA (http://www.timberwolfair.com)today after flying jets (737-200) for the past week. A charter that involved flying 3 hunters from Fort Nelson (CYYE) to La Biche River (CFP6) and returning to Fort Nelson. The weather was with us as we departed CYYE RWY 3 in the Cessna 208B Grand Caravan.My approach into La Biche was fine, until 350ft off the deck a small herd of deer decide to inhabit the runway!!!:-eek :-eek Ooopppps, flaps up, power on, tell passengers to hold on as it may get bumpy, but all turned out well.I guess the sound of the P&W PT6A winding up scared our friends off the runway so on the next approach all was well.Dropped off my hunting party, and hopped back to Fort Nelson.All in a days bush flying I guess. This isn't the first time this has happened to me, and if it keeps up I am going to put a 'roo bar (bush or push bar if you like) on the Caravan!:-lol :-lolOh by the way did you know that you can land a 737 on gravel runways!!!! Here is the page I got this info from:http://www.boeing.com/commercial/737-200/background.htmlDavid Duffy TWF268 Timberwolf Air: "Anything, Anytime, Anywhere.We Deliver." http://www.timberwolfair.com/

KBMI-KOSH in the Commander 115TC with my personal repaint and Garmin Avionics setup. At first I tried with some friends on multiplayer but MSN Messenger crashed it (I guess microsoft is the only company that could cause their products to crash each other). I eventually restarted it, and it went perfectly.Scott

This morning: Moscow to Athens on Roman Skorykh's Tu-154 :-) . Air traffic controller at LGAT was late in giving me vectors, so I had to go around for safety concerns, but in the end I landed safely.

Flew from KMEM to KTUL and back to KMEM in the Avro Northwest Airlink Livery. I love that plane! Lots of heat and humidity, no wind so it was pretty hazy out there. Flew over my in-laws house in Tulsa before shooting the approach. I wonder if there are any Oklahoma flyers out there besides Dale "the man" Baker?:-kewl

Pitt Meadows, Brittish Columbia (Vancouver area) - Missoula, Montana in the Brittish Airways Lear 45. Route north of Spokane, via COE, INE into KMSO. Used this flight to further test / perfect my FDC performance files for the new Lear.Approach into MSO - same FS problem - of getting redirected to the opposing r/w - after being handed off to Tower on final. Due to traffic, had to fly 18 miles d/w, to fit into the landing order !Scheduled for Pitt Meadows over to Bowerman, Washington on the coast today (King Air 350). It's been a `bit choppy in the air - over Seattle this week - via real weather........RonChuluota, Fl.

All these out of the way airports you guys fly to seems great. I feel like a bus driver saying I flew from DFW-LAX for my VA in a 757. :-(

Eric,You are closer to the mark with your "bus driver" comment than you realise. I was a London Transport bus driver before retirement and drove on the H25 route out of Heathrow to Hanworth for over eight years doing 5 round trips each day. I knew the names and locations of the 218 side roads I passed plus all the schools, churches and most of the public places. Nothing was allowed on my bus, but certain things were permitted.Why not give the RTWest plans available from Avsim, a whirl. They use not only main ILS equipped airports, but also some of the obscure VFR airports that seem to have taken your fancy. They are FS2K2 GPS plans for the default aircraft and scenery so no special downloads are required, all the navigation is handled by the autopilot, you sit back admiring the scenery watching the world go by underneath. Full flight briefing accompanies each plan.The RTWest plans are not recommended for the nervous or timid pilot. Although starting sensibly, the bush pilot lurking within me has cased the series to become distinctly as unreal as it gets. I must be doing something right however because the last time I checked they had achieved a total of over 20,000 downloads from Avsim.Denis. The Ancient Brit.

Today I took Charles Fox's AA 727 from La Guardia to Indianapolis. Took off shortly before sunrise. On landing in Indy there was a solid cloud cover at 200 feet maximum, coupled with strong wind and heavy rain. Had to go around on my first attempt since I did not get the runway in sight, but when I turned around and tried again I got her down. Landing was a bit shaky due to the strong wind - touched down rather late - but at least the plane stayed in one piece.

Sandiego to John Wayne, then on to Lompac, California in my Beech Bonaza. ;-) It was a nice flight except the LA Area had to be marginal VFR at best and most likely was IFR conditions even though I filed VFR on VATSIM ;-))Lance

Denis,You know, I keep seeing your files for this round the world flight your doing. I just may have to get them and start my trip around the world in between flying for my VA. I sometimes wonder what FS2002 really has to offer as all I ever see are major commercial airports and the ground from FL370.

Eric,No wonder you equate your style of flying with bus driving. You have paid the bucks for FS2K2 so why not explore the world and get the bangs! To see what RTWest has to offer navigate to the Noble Air main page and from there to the SIN (Singapore) hub. At the SIN hub you will find a gallery of screenshots that will at least give you a hint of what is out there. Be warned and be advised however, RTWest might change your outlook on virtual flying irrevocably.Denis. The Ancient Brit.
