Rod

Just getting started again

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm getting started again after a long absence. I am a pilot wanabe but at 78 years old it's not likely.  So I will take the next best thing.  I fly G.A aircraft out of mostly small to medium airports.  Right now my favorite plane is the Alabeo M20R ovation.  I am using MegasceneryEarth, and have New Mexico, Ariz. and north and south Calif..  My home base is Las cruces NM and I have flown over parts of NM in small planes, as a passenger.  I also used to live in Yuma, Ariz. and flew out of there, going to Phoenix and San Diego.  I am impressed at how realistic the scenery is.  Now all I have to do is learn to fly, use the radio and use the GNS 530.  I have a long way to go.  Unfortunately I don't have the time to fly as often as I would like.

I fly into Phoenix Sky Harbor International airport a lot.  Flightbeam did an excellent job developing this airport scenery.  Welcome to AVSIM   Enjoy!

The GNS 530 is a great piece of kit. If you haven't already I recommend using the Garmin trainer and reading the whole manual while practicing what you read. It's a pain to learn while actually flying! The power of that unit is amazing, although not as pretty as the later GTN 750 it's also less distracting. I have many happy memories using it installed in the Real Air planes. 

Welcome back!
