Recommended Posts

Steveo recently posted his recurrent training video at SIMCOM flying an IMC approach at Aspen (KASE). Made the similar flight in MSFS.

Nice!

I love the fact we can actually do some of the cool stuff we see aviation guys like Steve-o...I "almost" bought the Premier1 from Carenado when my inner-private jet pilot had me wanting to replicate Greg's flights. 🙂   I resisted, but if it comes to MSFS, that voice will be calling me again, LOL.  But I've sworn off Carenado for the foreseeable future. 

Of course we have Max....and his CJ3, but my inner-its gotta be the exact model type voice sees the excellent CJ4 we have thanks to the WT crew and pauses on flight re-creation. (besides....totally different avionics packages).

Maybe we could convince Max's Dad to upgrade to a CJ4? LOL.  You never know....he started on a Cirrus, the the Cirrus Jet, then he moved to the Citation family and has already done one upgrade there, hehe.

Thanks Steve! Yes, it is certainly great that the real world flights can be replicated with incredible accuracy from IFR flight planning and management to the amazing detail in VFR flights. You are obviously very familiar with those 3 big YT channels. I actually did buy the Premier1 for X-Plane and it is (was) a beauty to fly. Only on the MSFS platform now, so no Premier1 at present.  Max certainly comes across very humble and down to earth on his channel. Pretty sweet lifestyle for the 3 of them!

I enjoy Steveo's channel, he did a similar experiment with XP11 and TBM some months ago (or was it years ago)?   I really like how he explains everything he does and why.

Cheers, Rob.

Yes Rob, he did at least 3 XP11 videos over a year ago. He is one of the best for describing the reasons for procedures.

I feel obligated to add 'sorta replicated...' because the default setup shown in this video shows the shortcomings of the nav unit.  It's inability to preload, display, or even fly the hold or the approach procedure turn.  But the visual quality of MSFS I think exceeds the training simulator.

The WT NXi equipped aircraft in MSFS will do all of that - both the hold and the procedure turn. The MSFS TBM has the G-3000 of course, but hopefully WT will eventually work the same magic with the G-3000 as they have done with the NXi.

Unfortunately, most of the NXi-equipped aircraft in MSFS really don’t have sufficient performance or anti-icing capability to do the Aspen departure followed by the RNAV approach - at least not in winter weather conditions!

You are quite right! I was very careful in the actual video description to not use the word “replicate” or I would slammed very quickly. I knew someone here at AVSIM would pick up on the fact that I did not do the teardrop outbound loop at LINDZ and the inbound procedural section at Red Table (DBL). I have not drawn attention to these points in the video description to keep it simple for the majority of viewers. Thankfully the Nav unit permitted me to replicated the entire approach from the DBL VOR. Visual quality of MSFS is definitely better. Thanks for your keen analysis of the flight!

Thanks Jim for the info! Will definitely be cool to have the capability you describe in the G3000 equipped aircraft. For those following this thread or who have tried this flight: it was pointed out to me that the initially turn to 343 on departure is to avoid traffic that may be on a 5 mile final landing on the same RWY in an opposing direction. KASE is of the few airports using a single RWY and having aircraft land in one direction (RWY 15) and depart in the other direction (RWY 33).
