Whew, that was a tough one. Several storms caused some rough moments causing me to sim-barf my sim-cookies. The airport snuck up on me as I was navigating the canyons via GPS images. Had to go around while being careful not to collide with the surrounding mountains which were somewhat hidden in the medium-density clouds. At least there were approach lights on the runway. Anyway, I finally put her down and came to a stop.

Nevermind, I guess the piaggio in fsx that I've been working on all day is still a work in progress. I couldnt get the engines to spool up.

Speed, I could be wrong, but you might need to lean the fuel mixture. I had the same problem on my previous flight in the P-51. It took me a few minutes to realize that the increased elevation of these airports really makes a difference. Not only in the fuel mix, but also the amount of lift you'll get when rolling down the runway. Anyway, try leaning out the fuel mixture a bit and see if it'll start up. Dan
