LOWS to LOWI The Full Story!

Recommended Posts

Today I did my first flight into LOWI for years, so I set up a short flight from LOWS (Salzburg) to LOWI (Innsbruck) with AS16/ASCA etc. This flight would have been much easier in a NG than a A320, but...never mind. 

The Good news was a straight out take off from LOWS but due to winds it going to be a 08 landing.....great just what I needed for the first time!!! So I took up my Captain's seat in the  magnificent FSL A320 with Niki Air for the trip. Wish me luck!

 

So let the boarding begine.

Time for the push back.

So you can have an idea what i'm in for.(PFD) more later...

c.jpg

 

Taxi.

e.jpg

 

Holding short, TO Config is fine....

f.jpg

 

Gear up, time to turn left...

g.jpg

 

Now at RTT I was hoping to take screenshots of the descent but it took all my concentration to do it right and on speed etc.

So here I am now in manual flight on a heading of 230 from OEV. If you wonder why my gear is down, one word....drag, it's a 3.8 degree "glide" and to keep on speed....you get the picture....

Here is what the Visual LOC DME looks like. Look closely.... we need to look for a Church. O great....Churchers and me don't go, I will be struck by lighting am sure!

hh.jpg

 

I am now angry at myself because as you can see the Church should be to my 1 O'clock not 11 O'clock...what did I say about churches and me? No now I have a sharper turn than i should have. Damm!

Time to turn......Here we go!

k.jpg

 

l.jpg

 

Is this going to be any good?....I don't know...really I dont Know...I should but I dont....

m.jpg

 

O man am please with that, happy days......bit high but easy to correct that.

 

Am in manual flight with flight directors off. Dont and I been don't go my the lights when your close, go by your eyes and sight picture of runway. The Master warning light is ON becasue I did not have time to turn it OFF, it was because I turned AP OFF, that's all. Like I said working to hard.

n.jpg

 

A bit low but am happy.

o.jpg

 

Touch down....center line hit, greased landing..........Happy days....yay....

p.jpg

 

Turn off

q.jpg

 

Very short taxi.

r.jpg

 

Onto the apron.

s.jpg

 

There waiting for me.

t.jpg

 

Get them PAX off please.

u.jpg

 

Oooo, Look at them Brake Temps!!.....Brake Fans ON...

v.jpg

 

Better open the window...love the noise of them, unlike the Pax's lol.

w.jpg

 

Nice evening.

Great graphics---crisp, sharp, good color immersion!  Is that Aerosoft LOWI or ORBX?

Great trip David , just bought it myself today.

I am still having a hard time landing in the 50-200 zone with my stick. Have to make further changes to deadzone i guess. It feels like a good landing but the values doesnt :bengong:

Sometimes the landing FSUIPC lua script gives me two values (i.e 275-80) . Almost if i bump up in the air again which cant be seen in replay or felt for that matter.

But again thanks for the ride :cool:

The post never made mention which sim is being used in the screen shots. Probably why he asked Aerosoft or ORBX. Maybe he didn't know there was another version besides Aerosoft or ORBX. To the casual reader or simmer it's an easy to not know all of the available options in the payware market.

Works in P3D well enough for me, I prefer it to the JustSim version if I am honest.

Yep, except there's no doubt once you check his signature...

Seriously, does it look even remotely close to the level of detail shown on these pics..? Come on now...
