Heh, I think I FINALLY just flew for real.

Recommended Posts

I only mastered flying props and what not a few days ago, along with GPS approaches, but I thought, ####, I'll give an IFR flight a shot.Jumped in a Fokker-100, and set off to do KSEA -> KPHX. I didn't know if I'd be able to do it, but I listened to the ATC the whole way through, followed my high altitude airways, and finished with a perfect landing! It's a great feeling, lol.

Congratulations!!!! I remember my first perfect IFR from KJAX to KMCI. Now try doing it with FS Passengers so that it adds a little more purpose and excitement.-Mike

I do IFR w/ autopilot, autothrottles, GPS navigation and autoland. Sometimes I nap during the cruise mode. When will someone make a program so I can input my slowdown and descent points ?Sorry, couldn't resist.. Congratulations ! It does feel good when you learn more about this and find that it works. That what keeps us all hooked. Been here since FS98.Have fun..Bob

Well done! :-beerchugYeah it's great! - but like Mike Miraglia says - do it with FS Passengers - say - from Portland KPDX to LAX or LAX to San Diego. The stage you want to aim for is to be able to do the same thing, but using ONLY a printed IFR Flight Plan, printed approach plates, VOR, ADF and ILS (NO LOOKING AT THE MAP!!!), SIDS and STARS, and with as much cloud as FS9 will give you, and see what your passenger approval score is once they've de-planed and the excitement's over! THIS is a fun challenge!http://www.myairplane.com/databases/approach/:-wave

Well done.IMHO building new skills like IFR is so much more fun that just flying around VFR. There's nothing quite so delicious as flying IFR and coming down out of rough weather to find the runway is just where you'd like it to be!All the best -
