Where to fly first when you get your copy of FS2004

Recommended Posts

Hi All,I was just curious where folks would go on their first trip out of the FS2004 Box.As for me I believe I will be heading to Alaska to check out the "New and Improved" version of the 49th state.Dave

You have to start out at Meigs and buzz the city then head over to O'hare in a Cessna 172. It is just a flight sim tradition.

Amen to that! I can't possibly imagine any other possiblity. Now, (crossing fingers) let's just hope that MS wasn't so on top of things that they've already got the big X trenches carved into Meigs already - the way that it is in real life. Oh man, I hope not. I haven't asked a single "beta" question yet, but if I did, it would have been, "Is Meigs still in one piece?"Joe Miller

Amen amen!Default plane with default radio settings - hopefully that'll be 9R at O'Hare, so it's up to altitude and down the 'slope to O'Hare.Upon touchdown, it's over to the hometown airports to see what they are like...-Greg

When I get my copy of FS2004 I will go to my home airport (KISP/ISP) on long Island and get in that beautiful looking Learjet 45, head west over New York City area and then land back at KISP/ISP.

Well, I think I should take a trip around Meigs, or maybe the default airport if it isn't Meigs. I don't think I would be possible experience the first fly in FS2004 since I'm gonna swoon right after I have started the first trip :-lol

Gotta do the mountains 1st - always judge new FS (1st impression)with clouds, mesh relief, landclass realism, and a nice familiar IFR flight.... I'll hop in my trusty KingAir, depart Missoula, head over to Jackson Hole, Salt Lake, or maybe, San Jose. Really holding my breath for ATC improvements - just hope they've added all I've read about...... can't wait !RonKORLP-IV - 2.8GHz(2) 512 Kingston PC2700 DDR SDAsus P4PEATI 9700 Pro 128 meg OEMWD 80GB HDD 7200rpm 2MB cacheLite-On 52X CD-RW / NeroXP Home

Well, I think ill start from my home field of KMGC and go exploring all over Northern Indiana in either the DH88 Comet or another old plane :) . And depending on how long I fly, I might head down south to Indy and maybe as far as Louisville, KY.

Meigs, absolutely! Then after that it's off to Stanton (SYN) & Airlake (LNV) to check out the AI traffic at non-towered airports! I shall be alone no more!

First, I am going to LAX to taxi around with all sliders maxed, at which point I will hit shift Z twice and either go "hooray" or "arrhgggg, here we go again...the cycle begins again for another series of hardware upgrades."

Maybe I'll do a Torrance/Santa Monica-LAX flight at dusk. Nothing like a LA sunset. Maybe this time I'll be able to see my school if the scenery is photorealistic.

First thing I will do is install it. :DOnce running, I plan on flying traffic patterns at Meigs, starting with whatever plane it defaults to (172 most likely), and doing a pattern or two with each plane out of the box. (Heading over to O'Hare to test the bigger planes, of course!)Once I've tested everything, I'll fly the first leg in a FS2004 Round-The-World trip, touring as many cities as I can. Undecided which plane, my testing might help make that decision. :)

I will be starting at my hometown airport of KRSW and fly the COMPLETE outer states clockwise around the US stopping 1 time in each state back to KRSW with HOPEFULLY the PSS Airbus 320 and if not then the default 777 to experience the clickable virtual cockpits. :-jumpyAfter that whenvever that may be, I am off to the islands especially Princess Julianna and Micronesia in the default 172. :-sun1Then I will head down under and do a tour of Europe in the Lear then back to KDXR where I got my ticket for some Helicopter Training in the R22. :-rotorAfter that I will recreate the Wright Brothers glorious day as well as Charles Lindbergh's flight across the Atlantic.Finally I will salute Pearl Harbor with A few passes of the DC-3 and land by jumping out because I don't think it will be easy to land! :-)After that I should be ready for FS2K6 :-lol
