A2A made me sick

Recommended Posts

Monday I purchased my beautiful A2A Bonanza. It was a stellar day here in South Carolina so I loaded my weather engine and like I do with all my new aircraft I took her up for a familarization flight. I practiced slow flight, stalls, steep turns, turns around a point and slow flight in a landing configuration.

As I started back to the pattern for some landings I noticed I was feeling clammy, palms were sweaty and I was nauseous, the unmistakable symthoms of motion sickness.I actually got airsick on a table top sim. Now that's imersion for you.The only step up from that would be a sim that kills you for messing up.

The Bonanza is IMHO the Pinnacle of GA recips. Looking forward to many hours in an aircraft I always admired since I was a kid.

Great job Scott!!

I haven't flown another plane since I purchased the Bonanza.  I'm completely addicted to it!

I have 2 single engine planes I would like to have in p3d done 100% simulated. a C208 & Cargomaster and PC-12.

I would like it if they finally moved up to modeling a faster twin engine if they do not do either of my dream airplane above.

Keep plenty of that around but never thought I would need it for a desktop aircraft. Things are getting serious when you actually feel like you've been flying after a session.

Off subject this reminds me of the time when I was about 13 and my Dad gave me a chaw of Day Of Work chewing tabbaco and laughed while I threw my groceries.

Rest his soul.

Thanks for the "Dad" story. Made me bust out laughing, instantly making me remember something in childhood. My brother (6) and I (9), found an old cigar near our grandfathers house , swiped some kitchen matches from in the house. Hid out behind the chicken house and lit it up. About 5 minutes later we both staggered out near front porch, where Grandfather was sitting in the old rocking chair. "All right you young ones, what is your problem? Neither one of you look very well".  I don't remember the line I fed him. Now that old gentleman was tricky and extremely smart, as I remember him. He looked at us a moment, then told me that I and my brother should go over to the faucet and get a big drink of the cold water and we would feel fine. (it was a rather warm summer morning). We did as suggested. You can fill out the remainder because all should know that "green gills" and a lot of water do not mix well.
