Amazing how rusty you get on FS9 if unplayed

Recommended Posts

Last night I played on FS9 after three weeks and oh gosh it was so embarassing Im glad another simmer was not watching http://www.nextgenerationrecords.co.uk/boa...es/icon_eek.gifHopped in an SAS 737-600 for a flight from Oslo-Tromso, climb, cruise, descent ok but the approach and landing was horrible, all over the GS, sloppy management, AS not nailed..... I was disgusted with myself.But it was also interesting...it appears that us simmers suffer the same skill-erosion as our real-life counterparts?!Mleh!

Sure I do. In Oct/Nov I flew the A321 a lot. Then I didn't fly it much for about 2 months...came back to it the other day, and ugh...My first A321 approach in 2 months was so bad, I had to go around.It did not take me long to get back into it though. After about 3 cycles I am now getting pretty competent in that a/c again. If it were a plane I had never flown before, it would take a lot longer for me.RhettAMD 3700+ (@2310 mhz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (Guru3D 93.71), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2 GB Corsair XMS 2.5-3-3-8 (1T), WD 250 gig 7200 rpm SATA2, CoolerMaster Praetorian case

Yea, that's why I quit flying the heavies. The big jets are just too complex for the amount of time you need to keep current. I fly a C 310 now. Easier. I still forget stuff though. Forgot to richen the mixture from altitude once. Man did it run lousy.JimCYWG
