Need Co-Pilot!

Recommended Posts

Hey folks, I am looking for a Grumman G-21 Goose co-pilot (DC-3 and Beaver as well). Basic instrumentation understanding required, that is all... if you know what an attitude indicator is and how to tune a radio, I need you! Only a few other stipulations, you must have a mic and preferably a good internet connection. If you are new with the Goose aircraft I can give you free lessons, plus most of the areas I fly in I am familiar with, that means I can give "flight tours" to some extent. Learn how to fly an aircraft that encompasses the intricacies of a tail dragger, amphibious and twin engine aircraft all in one package named the Goose! I don't need someone to listen to me, I need someone who is willing to actually FLY and share the experience!I will be doing the following in my flights:- VFR Navigation based upon real world charts and old world navigation- Realistic check list procedures based upon MSFSX checklists and personal knowledge- Com radio usage based upon information gathered before flight- Flights are in real world weather and are updated- Engine checks and scans- Realism sliders full right- Time/speed navigation checks- Etc! My flights are based upon real world experience, old navigation when applicable, new world navigation when applicable. All flights will have emphasis on realism.All flights will be hosted by myself, all you need is to be able to connect to GameSpy via the multiplayer utility in FSX.Let me know if you are interested, I commonly fly flights around Alaska and in the Seattle area near the San Juan Islands. Other flights in the Beaver and DC-3 would also be welcome!

Amazing... I haven't got FSX yet... But I'd make a great co-pilot:) I'll have to try to hook up later.DannyCZBB

Danny, I would be more than willing to co-pilot for you or pilot for you. Simply put, while I enjoy the flying, it sure makes it a #### of a lot more fun to share that experience... not to mention lower the workload!

This is one of the greatest improvements in the sim-and I would have paid $54 for this feature for fs9 alone if it had been available.I have already taken some flights with a student pilot friend of mine-one was a sightseeing trip thru the Sierra Nevadas with me pointing out every peak,lake, and narration of history and other points of interest. Another was a strict flight instruction flight, and another with me as tower controller vectoring for ils approaches and throwing every curve imaginable into the situation. The shared cockpit/tower/multiplayer is just amazing.The possibilities are endless.... http://mywebpages.comcast.net/geofa/pages/rxp-pilot.jpg

Hey Geof !Man oh man - the opportunity to fly with a REAL pilot. I'd love to be able to do this.I'm no expert by any means, but I'd love to have you "share" a cockpit and provide advice, instruction, etc.I'll look you up in on line in the next couple days.JerryG

Looks like this thread could become the forerunner of a whole new AvSim category. I can see it all now:-"Wanted - Flight Engineer. Must have 3000hours+ DreamFleet 727 experience"! "Controller seeks Tower job near Boston"! "Spitfire Mk XIV pilots needed. RAF Duxford forming new sqadron - formation experience - must".This sure has possibilities, doesn't it?

It sure does. Maybe even some type of hovercontrol.com type program. The possibilities are endless :)

I can only dream! When I popped this thread in I started by looking if there were any similar threads... I saw none. I believe playing multiplayer brings the experience to an even higher level of simulator flying. I hope that as we continue to explore the possibilities of FSX that all people who have purchased this give the online community a try. There is so much to be had!PS, it is about 6PM PST here, I plan on going into the flight training area in a few under CodyValkyrie. Hope to see some of you guys there!

Well I flew with Valkyrie321 tonight and a friend from my local area. Flew some shared cockpit Baron procedures (a very good pilot Valkyrie321 by the way)-then flew over my house. Have a promise of future flight with Valkyrie321 showing me some sights he is familiar with in Alaska and Pacific Northwest. Pretty cool....a whole new avenue in flight simming...fsx worth the price alone for this experience... http://mywebpages.comcast.net/geofa/pages/rxp-pilot.jpg

You can say that again Geofa!After getting familiar with the voice cockpit (btw, you don't have to press a button to use voice in a shared cockpit) we did a few touch and gos then proceeded to view the local area, including the lake near his house! Never flying the Baron before, Geofa made me feel right at home and in no time I was putting her on the numbers.Quite a cool session, and I invite everyone to try this experiece... now if I can only get my router working properly.BTW, Geofa, it just struck me, I won't be able to do that flight tomorrow. Lets hold it off until Thursday, as I got work until 8PM PST.-Valk
