    Please help me with this survey!

    Hello everyone! I currently have to complete a survey in my math class, and for my chosen topic I decided to use pilot pay. I really need help with responses. If you are not currently a commercial pilot but aspire to be one, or are in the process, please complete as accurate as to your intentions. Thank you for your help, it is MUCH appreciated, as I could not obtain a sufficient amount of responses from my local airport Thanks again! tinyurl.com/pilotstatsurvey

    Popular Routes

    Hey guys, I am away from home this weekend, so I only have Sunday afternoon on the sim. I was wondering what routes you guys like to fly that are short but also popular in real life for the 737. Thanks for the suggestions guys, I really appreciate this helpful community!

    Hit by a racing pigeons during fight school today!

    That is crazy! One time on final, my instructor and I came within about 15 feet of a huge buzzard! Glad you were okay.

    Cost Index

    Hey guys, hope everyone is doing well. I spoke with a distant uncle who flies with Southwest, and of course asked him some questions (I want to be in his shoes one day!) One question that I was really curious about was the cost index. On youtube, you see people putting in various numbers, but I wanted to know what the real pilots use, and he said that a typical value was 20-25. By the way, he said that very rarely they got up to FL410 due to the heavy weight of routes these days. Hope that helps with your simming experience. -Josh McCoruqodale (P.S. If anyone here is a repainter and would like to do me a favor, could you check out my previous topic on an A2A Cherokee repaint? Thanks!)

    Piper Cherokee Repaint

    I would like to ask a big favor of any repainter out there. I currently take flight lessons on a Piper Archer and was wondering if anyone could do a repaint of the airplane, Archer N181FA. I have just soloed, and I can't wait for the adventures to come (solo cross countries, check ride preparation, etc.)! There's just something missing when flying the A2A Cherokee when I go to the outside and I don't see the plane . I have no repainting experience, so if the task takes too long, don't worry about it :smile: . The airplane can be found here: http://www.flightgest.com/fleet/, Just scroll to the bottom to find 1FA. Have a great weekend everyone! -Joshua McCorquodale

    Best FSX Turboprop?

    Again, thanks for all the helpful input guys! I have decided to purchase the Turbine Duke V2 and the GTN 750 avionics package. The avionics package will also be great as I can use it with other aircraft such as the amazing A2A Cherokee.Have a great weekend all!

    Best FSX Turboprop?

    Thanks again for all the help everyone! I think I will be choosing the turbine Duke V2. By the way, the turbine instead of piston aircraft is the better option, correct? Thanks!

    Best FSX Turboprop?

    Thanks for all the help guys! I think that I have now narrowed the list down to the Beech Duke from Real Air Vs. the TBM850 from Carenado. Which do you guys think I should choose?

    Best FSX Turboprop?

    Thanks for the quick reply! I have been considering that plane, looks like it fits the bill of what I need. Just wondering however, does the GTN750 display come with the airplane, or do you have to pay for the package seperately to get the avionics? Thanks!

    Best FSX Turboprop?

    Hello everyone! I am thinking of buying a new payware add-on for FSX, and am interested in a Turboprop General Avaition plane. I was wondering what add-on you guys think is the most accurate for me to buy.I really want a plane that is perfect for routes of about 500 nm. I am strongly considering the Carenado TBM-850, but was wanting to make sure that I am making the right move. Thanks! -Josh M

    First solo

    Thanks for all the input guys! I forgot to mention that I will be soloing at KRDU, which has a class C airspace, so I will make sure to say I am a student pilot (Thanks Chris!). I have heard about the climb performance with the airplane being light, which I am for sure looking forward to! I am also looking forward to the solo cross countries that follow, especially the thought of flying to see my grandparents for lunch, as they live at an airport not too far over 50nm away. I am just wondering guys, is this kind of frowned upon to go on a cross country and have a stopover of about an hour? Thanks -Josh M.

    First solo

    Hey guys, hope you all are having a great summer! I have been continuing my flight training and I am happy to say that I am approaching my first solo on September 18th, which is my 16th birthday! Just wondering if you guys have any helpful tips on what to expect or anything else. Thanks for the feedback! -Josh McCorquodale

    PMDG 737NGX low cockpit resolution

    I found the fix! It turns out that when I reinstalled FSX, it turned the world texture settings back to high instead of ultra high. This is what caused the blurry cockpit textures. Thanks for all the help guys, I really appreciate this great avsim community!
