First FS2004 Flight?

Recommended Posts

>and do a flight from there all the way>to KPWT (Fresno, Ca. to Bremerton, Wa.) and tour Puget Sound.Watch out for the TFR at Bremerton... oh yeah, wait, that's another benefit of simulated flying. No AI F-16s to hunt you down ;-)I'll take the Eaglesoft Beechjet, load up real weather and go from Boeing Field to Bozeman Montana IFR

:-lol *whoop whoop whoop*"We're locked on! Break Right Break Right!!" "What do you think we're in, an F-16??" "I TOLD you to avoid the TFR!!" "How was *I* supposed to know?? The new GPS doesnt show those kind of boundaries!!" *F-16 pilot launches a Sidewinder* "We're being tracked by an air to air! I KNOW we're in a Mooney, just Break RIGHT!!" *Breaks Right, straining and creaking to hold itself together in the tight turn as the scream of the missle gets louder and louder...**FS2004 dumps to desktop, I turn to see my wife standing in the doorway, staring at me like I've completely lost my marbles and then some, and I chuckle nervously....* To Be Continued...

Im going to take the improved Learjet 45, start at my home airport (KISP) fly east over to Montauk Point NY to see what has been added since FS2002, then turn west and head to New York City and see the scenery. Then I will land back at KISP. (with real world weather and all sliders set to max)

As soon as I've purchased FS2004 in early August, then I'll install it on my new Dell 8300 (which I'm driving about 120 miles to collect tomorrow cos I'm not patient enough to wait 24 hours for delivery sometime on Friday!!), and load up the new Lear, at an airport somewhere in the south of England, possibly Southampton or Bournemouth, real world weather (unless of course its wall to wall blue sky outside! GOT to see those clouds!), and go for a spin around the south of England, or maybe over to Dublin in Ireland...sliders set to max to test the ATI 9800 Pro!Can't wait...Regards,Al.

KDFW BABY!!!! got to load up my home airport to see the new and improved DFW. Then I will start up the Cessna 421 and fly over my house and go to the Caribbean for some sun and fun and see how nice the new default mesh looks!!

Thinking that MS would still have Meigs as there default I created a flight plan to fly over the course of time and visit most US big cities and things of interest along with each state capitol. Below is my flight plan:Miegs Field KCGXMidway, IL KMDWO

Capitol of Vermont is Montpelier, FYI... :)But, from Concord, NH to Burlington, VT, you will probably fly right overhead. :) (VOR: MPV)

Very cool idea... can you post or email me a copy of the flight plan? Might be fun to do it in FS2002 then again in fs2004 and be able to compare...Bob S Reno, NV

Kilstorm, could I have a copy of that flight plan? I'd love to give that a shot in all of the default aircraft except the helicopters. If you don't mind... send it to clouddancer79@hotmail.comThanks!Todd

I think I will do a transcon flight from KLAX-KJFK with either Posky's 767-200ER in American or United Airlines. I am not sure which yet. My second I think will be LAX-NRT with the United 777.

I'll start my 3rd world wide tour following the plans provided by microsoft back in Fs2000... Is the first thing I do when I get a new version, but before that I have to fly back (my final Fligth in FS2002) to Meigs... Right now I am stuck in a very small strip deep in the middle of the Andean Mountains practicing with the lago ultraligths... (Only when real Sky Weather provides me with very nice sunny days).I always pick the location where I land to start a new fligth and I think I will keep on doing it until the Tele transporters really work!

As I've said before (but probably on fs.com), my *very first* FS2004 flight will be a traffic pattern at the default airport, with one of the vintage aircraft.My plan is to fly test flights with all the aircraft first, find one I like (or import one of the vintage planes I have in FS2002 if I don't really like any of them enough), and then embark on my second round-the-world trip starting from the default location, ending in my home city of Winnipeg, MB, Canada. After that, I have no idea what I'll do.....Of course, I'll have to fly a few flights for the VA I fly for to keep my account alive, but that's to be expected.... :(

Dang...that's a hard question :). It depends on whether I have to work that night or not. If I do, it'll probably Boeing Field to Portland (Oregon) or Boeing Field to Victoria (BC). If I don't then it'll be Boeing Field to Las Vegas or Los Angeles.

Take-off from Cape Town International (in the Ford Trimotor - just for fun), flying around the Cape Peninsula via the city. A good test of the mesh accuracy!BTW, I believe the default airport is going to be Seattle. Read this on a German website based on an Interview with Darren Williams (MS)See you in the sky! :-)Eric

@ Todd:Oh well, the GPS does show boundaries... But I dunno if TFR.@ Kilstorm:Nope, the default airport is SeaTac, but Meigs is still there (and usable!).@ Ben:Nope, the Sopwith F-1 Camel has been removed.Cheers and have fun,Etienne :-wave
