About Me

  • About Me
    The not-so-typical Swedish 17 year old guy, while most other people of my age spend their weekends drinking to much beer you will likely find me locked up in my room in the middle of a 4-hour flight, alternatively on some train... I'm a true railfan beside my interest for aviation!
  1. Train dispatcher, signaller etc in Sweden, working at a small station. Hoping to become a driver in the future as well.
  2. Nothing wrong with the sounds as far as I can tell.
  3. Thanks for the suggestion, does that disable it entirely so that there is no risk of accidentally activating the airspeed mode?
  4. Well, in my opinioun they should have stayad away from it entirely instead, because as it is now it is entirely unusable. Either you climb at full power or you stay level on a low power setting.
  5. I belive I have found a bug: While in airspeed hold mode the autopilot takes control over the power levers, which is incorrect as far as I understand it. It should only modify pitch to maintain the selected airspeed. JF has been notified and hopefully it will be solved soon.
  6. Bought and did a short flight from my home field and back. Took of at MTOW and the 2600 feet runway was just long enough for a safe takeoff. Regarding ground resistance I thought it seemed pretty realistic. However, the Darts do, as someone said earlier, require some time to spool up. The first time I applied way to much power so the aircraft set of a lot faster than I wanted it to. Second time was much smoother, just give the engines a few moments to do their thing. The aircraft does not move at idle thrust, at least not at MTOW, and the brakes can easily hold full power. System wise it's much better than earlier JF offerings, just about everything is clickable and all switches have sounds, something I really like and earlier products didn't have. The F27 flies well and feels really heavy - just as I imagine the real thing does. She is extremely stable. The landing was the trickiest part, even at flight idle the engines produce a lot of thrust. It was a bit tricky to get it down onto the runway, you need to be slow early on to put her down properly. Ground roll with full braking was about 500 meters which is the same as the manual says. So far I'm very happy with this thing.
  7. Just over 1000 meters (3000 feet) at MTOW according to what I've read, so absolutely a STOL airliner.
  8. JustFlight's Fokker F27 was just released. Anyone tried it yet? I'm almost about to buy it but previous experience with JustFlight products (Dc-6, Constellation, Viscount etc) puts me off. I wonder if this one may be better though?
  9. Hi guys! I'm thinking about starting some sort of virtual airline, most likely just for myself and my own entertainment. This airline will serve small routes between Norway's capital, Oslo, and small villages in the north and nortwest of Norway. The focus will mostly be on tourists, but the airline will also serve the occasional commuter and take mail and the lightest cargo to these villages. Now I need to find a suitable aircraft for the job. I have some rather though requirements for my aircrafts. Take at least 6 passengers. Range of 700 nm or more. Be able to serve 2000 feet runways. As high cruise speed as possible. I'm leaing towards the Twin Otter, however the 180 knots cruise speed is a bit slow. I don't know if any other plane will fit the role though. All suggestions and ideas are very welcome!
