First Flight in A2A Skyhawk

Recommended Posts

Took my new A2A Skyhawk from my hometown airport in Enid, Oklahoma (Woodring Regional Airport, KWDG) to Stillwater, OK (Stillwater Regional, KSWO), where I go to school at.  The short hop let me figure out how to work this plane, especially its autopilot.

KWDG scenery is stock FSX where as KSWO scenery is from ORBX NA Airports Freeware.

On the ramp.

Great shots, David. The little Skylane is my go to aircraft for taking vacations in places I would move to if money was of no concern.

I used to commute between Enid and OSU as well, David.   Miss the Oklahoma plains.

Have you considered adding a GTN 750 to your instrument panel?  Makes my 182 flights much more enjoyable!

I've considered it but it might do a number with the performance on my laptop (the main reason I tend to stray away from the glass cockpits of Carenado/Alabeo planes).  When I am able to build a nice desktop I might pick it up, I do like a lot of its features.

Great pictures and aircraft!

Thx for sharing


Don't know, but to me MFS looks a lot like the "Barbie" of desktop flight simulation...

Doesn't matter - I like to play with Barbies...
