2008 RTW Practice #1

Recommended Posts

This thread is for posting race practice legs. For practice you should assume rules are the same as last year (2007):http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...g_id=4341&page=I propose that we try a different team routing than we used last year and attempt to use the North Pacific Corridor (Pacific-N-01).Plan route of flight to the entry point of the corridor:GCRRLERTLFHQEDCDULOOUUYYUSHHZ25PUIII (Start Corridor)UHMMUHMA

I am not making very good time in the Cheyenne. Looks like I will exceed 2hr limit. Expect some time penalty for this first practice leg.

Happy New Year to you too Bry. On the overspeed. I went into my first overspeed at top of climb at FL250. I pulled the throttle back to idle but the fuel flow did not diminish and my speed kept increasing. I had to chop the condition levers to get my speed back under the barber pole. I then used speed hold on the autopilot and it resulted in a slow roller coaster climb to 26,500 with numberous small excursions above the barber pole. I watched the overspeed time increase as the flight progressed and expected a crash at any moment. The crash did not come. I got lucky. I will not use the Cheyenne IIXL in the race.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/182739.jpg

I reflew the leg and this time I made it okay. It may have been a one off glitch. I disconected the RSS news feed I was getting and I lowered the temperature in my computer room. I guess we'll see if it is going to be a persistent problem!Mike.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/182744.jpg

Strange glitch at the end of the flight, i thought i was about 10 miles west of the airport then suddenly i was 20 miles north of it. Whether this was a gps problem or an FSX problem i don't know, but i don't seem to have a Duenna problem.Nice flight anyway and the wingman ran out of fuel. Says it all reallyhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/182759.jpg
