About Me

  • About Me
    I prefer to fly regional routes with turboprop aircraft in FSX, however I still fly 737's and 757's from time to time. I used to fly jetliners for Delta Virtual Airlines before the site got hacked, spent most of my time in the cockpit of a 737-800W or a 757-200/300.

    US Army ROTC Graduate (2nd LT at graduation), never got to go active or reserve, I got declared 4F because I got jabbed in the eye playing team sports, and had to have eye surgeries.

    Expert Marksman with Handgun - Rifle (Small bore), and Long Rifle.

    I play all sorts of video games, from Flight Simulators to First Person Shooter, and even RPG's.

    Lived near an airport all my life and always wanted to be a pilot, right now I am a student pilot at Cirrus Aviation and I fly a Cessna 172SP Skyhawk NavII and NavIII with a Garmin 1000 Glass Cockpit.

    Professional Windows PC Technician for 9+ years, love the work but it gets mundane from time to time, then I go flying!
  1. Well now, my home state of Florida is in development, hhhhmm time to get my debit card ready
  2. I have both Orbc CRM and KJAC as well as many other airports in the area like KBZN. I personally like the detail that Orbx goes into, and KJAC looks really good. That being said, KJAC is a tricky airport to get in and out of. Its perfect for turboprops especially ones like King Air's, D-8-400's, and ATR's. 737's under full power and flaps to 15 degrees take off easily enough, 757's need about flaps 25 and full power (Quality Wings 757) to take off with a full load.
  3. My issues that I have noticed..... The COM switches were INOP and I could not switch between COM1 - COM2 The Sounds are pretty bad even for a Carenado aircraft, I am hoping that either AREZONE or TSS will release a sound pack for this plane. The documentation on this aircraft from Carenado is really limited when compared to their other releases Very limited functions of the G600 suite even when compared to the Piper Jetprop. Now despite these issues I love flying this plane, it seems to handle well and for my first flight I shot a perfect ILS in solid IMC conditions so it does navigation correctly. After doing some internet research on the actual performance profiles for the Seneca V and making my on VREF manual, I flew the plane according to spec and it operated within a 2-3% margin (VREF was set for ISA) and the landing speeds we pretty spot on, this plane CAN be a joy to fly, they patch the reported errors and either they make the sounds better or someone makes an HD sound pack for this and its solid gold.
  4. Active Sky Next's ATIS needs to be enabled in the ASN Options area, once its enabled you tune into... 122.00 for Closest ATIS position 122.025 for Destination ATIS I have never heard the ASN ATIS report the active runway.
  5. I am using Plan G v3.1.1, its freeware and its basic compared to lots of others, however I do have it synced with my FSX including 3rd party airport scenery so I get accurate manual flight plans in FSX, I know lots of people use PFPX though.
  6. I have it, considering its a G1000 its pretty smooth and for Carenado its pretty feature intensive, I believe its THE most feature intensive Carenado product they have ever released. I have it, considering its a G1000 its pretty smooth and for Carenado its pretty feature intensive, I believe its THE most feature intensive Carenado product they have ever released. I have the Carenado TBM850, its very well modeled in terms of the FDE, Visuals (no surprise there) and even in the systems depth of the G1000. Given again its not going to be PMDG level systems simulation but it is THE most feature intensive Carenado product I have seen yet and that includes many Carenado products that I own (check "My Simulator" on my profile to the left of this post for more details).
  7. That may very well have been my post on Carenado with their TBM850 vs the Wilco TBM850. Again just think if Carenado never existed because they are too mid level sim and not like PMDG we would be stuck with the Wilco model only!
  8. I have to agree that simulation wise RealAir and Carenado are on 2 whole different levels with RealAir being on top, a better comparison would be RealAir and A2A, i have a preference for A2A but both are absolutely top notch and are easily the PMDG of GA & vintage aircraft. Where Carenado can compete is with the graphics. I am debating over this Duke B60 or the Carenado C208 EX, and I am a turboprop guy, while the B60 is not technically a turbo prop, its is a turbocharged prop. I fly VA for my own subsidiary airline called Turboprop Regional, so you can see the conundrum that I am now faced with. Addendum: Is there reverse thrust in the B60, I know many piston powered aircraft are not equipped with reverse thrust, however there are a few that can, not too keen on the history of the B60.
  9. given the screenshot, its nice to see night lighting like that, however I don't think for me at least its worth the extra $14.99 USD to "upgrade" from my Ceilosim HD Taxiways. However.... if you are using DEFAULT taxiways like most, this is definitely the upgrade to get if you want to know where you are going on the ground!
  10. I have Airport Enhancer HDX by Cielosim which gives you new taxi way signs in HD, however it uses the "grey boxes" that default ones use and it does not come with enhanced night lighting, still wondering if this product will do much more for me or not, if anyone else has experience between these 2 product it would be great to know how much of a difference there is....
  11. I have accu-feel V2, love that program, you just need to customize every aircraft accordingly and turn down the turbulence or you will regret it. This sounds like its meant to compete with Accu-Feel, not entirely sure if its compatible with it or not.
