About Me

  • About Me
    I've loved Flight Simulator from the very first days of the PC. Loved it so much, I decided to get my private pilots license in the mid 90s. I'm not sure why, maybe it's the availability of such great add-ons, but much to my wife's dismay, I've found myself spending a lot more time lately in the virtual cockpit!

    Feel Like a New Plane

    Quick update: Less than 24 hours after submitting a ticket, I got an email with my order number. This let me log in and download from their extended service. The purchase emails arrived in my spam folder around the same time. They say patience is a virtue, but these days, you get used to the instant download link!

    Feel Like a New Plane

    I picked that up a day or two after the whole story broke about their use of DRM in the installer. Really a great add on, just updated to the latest release. In all honesty, I don't need to get another add on, I've got several that I've not really explored. But boy, I love loading up a new purchase, digging into the tutorial, and flying to an airport I haven't been to yet!

    Feel Like a New Plane

    Well darn it! I talked myself into the 757, purchased it on their website via PayPal, got the PayPal receipt, but no download links. Saw on their support forums that this has happened before. There's a link to submit a ticket, but you need an order number and that never came. Have to say this is the first time something like this has happened to me and I've purchased a bunch of add ons! Oh well, we'll see what happens over the next 24 hours...

    Feel Like a New Plane

    Thanks all for the advice! Just flew back from KORD to KATL on Friday on a Delta MD88. Lingered a bit to have a look at the flight deck and have to say the maddog looks like a pretty good representation. Think I’ll start with that!

    Feel Like a New Plane

    I’m feeling like I’d like to grab a new plane for the 4th of July. I was thinking eithe the Maddog or Captain Sim 757. Any thoughts? thanks!

    Time to move to 4.2?

    I finally updated to 4.2 using the uninstall/install individual compoment method and so far no problems. The CRJ 4.2 only update was the major motivation for the change. So far, no problems.

    Navigraph

    Vic, Could you clarify your comment about the GTN750? I noticed that Navigraph was not updating my GTN. I did some research and learned that the data is static and is determined by the version of data in the underlying Garmin training simulator. Is there a way to get Navigraph data into the GTN750? Thanks! Mike

    Early morning Maddog

    Great shots. The Maddog is my next purchase!

    Use of an ATC Add-on

    I've been doing my research on various ATC add-ons and I was curious how many of you actually fly with ATC. I've been having a lot of fun just learning the ins and outs of PFPX, uploading flight plans into my new jets, loading flight plans directly into the FMS, etc. Then I noticed in Froogle's latest "fully loaded" he wasn't using an ATC (I think his old standby was/is RC). The thought occurred to me that I might not even need an ATC add-on but wanted to get some feedback on if you feel that it significantly enhances the overall sim experience. Thanks for your thoughts!

    Aerosoft CRJ current status?

    Thought I would post one other quick note. Flew a short hop from KECP, a payware add on last updated for P3d v3, up to most recent update of Imaginesim's KATL, and the CRJ flew the route perfectly. RRS GOLLM GNDLF2, ILS to RW 08R.

    Aerosoft CRJ current status?

    I've had no issues with LNAV, VNAV, CTD. Aside from my lack of skills without an auto throttle, this model has been outstanding. On my first tutorial flight, I did see some of what you guys have been describing, but after I updated the planes database via Navigraph, it's been perfect. I do try to keep all of my navaids, mag dev, etc. up to date. I suppose if you haven't done the same, that could cause some of the problems you've been seeing.Being from Atlanta, it's great having a short hop Delta CRJ to fly around the south east!

    How can I explain to you...

    Wow, great shot!
  13. It's a rainy day down here in Georgia, so I thought I take a quick flight from my home airport over to Augusta. Used the Alabeo PA31 Chiefton 350 with Flight1s G500/600. Really nice avionics package. I'm hoping more developers will incorporate the set into their aircraft.

    Hawker 850 KATL-KJFK-KDCA

    Well, so much for photobucket. You can tell I haven't posted in a while! Let's see if this works...
  15. Flew from ATL to JFK then down to DCA. Thought the moon looked really cool coming into NY and there were fireworks coming into DCA.
