Where has the T7 taken you?

Recommended Posts

I fly for two virtual airlines and luckily I've had the time off to fly this gorgeous bird all around. Having gotten it since release day I've put in some great hours for both VA's.

 

For American Airlines - KPAE-KDFW-OMDB-EGLL-LEMD-LSZH and tomorrow to KJFK

 

And for United Airlines - KPAE-KORD-KIAD-OMDB-VHHX-PANC and later on to KSFO

 

Be sure to say hello if your around on VATSIM, I only use my assigned callsigns which are AAL711 or UAL705!!

Yeah I really think not only is the airport really well done but the city all around it.  Plus the sandstorms!  Someone posted the other day a real world weather picture within FSX with a sandstrom, yet to have one of those.  Its become a top airport for me since the T7 dropped.  Hardly used it up unitl then but I knew I'd use it a lot once PMDG graced us with their simulation artwork!

 

Here's a shot leave DBX for DFW the other day, http://i448.photobucket.com/albums/qq210/StickMan2385/2013-9-9_23-1-18-403.png~original

I was lucky that I had scheduled a week off earlier in the year and it just so happened that I would be off that week after the T7 was released which has given me plenty of time to fly it.

 

So far I have done the following:

 

KDFW to KJFK

KJFK to OMDB

OMDB to LSZZ

LSZZ to KJFK

KJFK to KLAX

KLAX to KDFW

KDFW to EDDP

EDDP to OMDB

OMDB to EGKK

EGKK to KORD

KORD to KDFW

KDFW to SBGL

SBGL to SBGR <- reposition flight

SBGR to KDFW

KDFW to PANC

PANC to KDFW

KDFW to KMIA

KMIA to EDDF

EDDF back to KDFW

 

Can't decide where I am going to go this evening though, but it will probably be a shorter route than the ones I have done so far.

LOL, yeah and its only Weds night. I still have 4 more days off before I have to go back to work. Plenty of time for more flights.

 

Only problem is I was just flying some circuits to practice my manual landings and all of the sudden the blue LEDs on my X52 joystick started flashing and I lost use of my hat switches for panning. Rebooted and gained those back but now one of the buttons on my throttle I use to reset my eye point in the VC isn't working and its assigned in Ezdok.

 

Maybe my X52 is bad. Hard to say, its almost 5 years old and for some reason all the buttons seem to register when I try them in the Win7 device manager, but when I am in FSX some of the buttons dont pick up. I read that since I have an older X52 it might be from older firmware that isn't up to date with the new X52's and it cant be flashed or updated in older units.

Anyway, until I get this new problem sorted I am grounded for now.

On day one I took the British Airways livery out for a familiarization circuit at EGLL, with a test of the Lambourne hold.  Where other addons choke on the hold procedure, the T7 passed with flying colors.  Then it was time to load up the Delta LR for a "quick" flight from KATL to KLAX.

 

I just completed the 2nd longest route in my FSX career, KATL to OMDB.   That trip was 13 hours 39 minutes, missing the PFPX predicted time by 1 minute!

Going to fly the return route soon.  Love getting my hands dirty crunching numbers with PFPX, keeping tabs of fuel burn with a printed OFP, and the ability to copy paste winds aloft by waypoint into the FMC from AS2012 is a real time saver, and very realistic.  I wonder how much longer my return trip to Atlanta will be with headwinds?

So far I've done

 

1. Auckland (NZAA) - Brisbane (YBBN) Air New Zealand colours

2. Everett (KPAE) - Los Angeles (KLAX) Virgin Australia colours

3. Los Angeles (KLAX) - Alice Springs (YBAS) Virgin Australia colours

4. London/Gatwick (EGKK) - St Maarten (TNCM) British Airways colours.

 

After that I started a round the world trip using PMDG products exclusively. I've only done the first sector (YBAS-YPAD in the NGX). I planning on using the 747 for the pacific crossing so that gives me a little while to read up on the 777 before the atlantic crossing.
