Designers, please note the simplicity of the concept and help with other areas. A sample of these aligned airports are posted on Youtube at ( ). Thanks for your interest and feedback.
4prop replied to Thomasso's topic in MS FSX | FSX-SE ForumHi Thomas, Don't let the non-pilots bother you. It IS possible for a PC pilot to handle a heavy. That was proven in 1994 at Simuflite's training facility in Dallas, Texas at an annual MicroWings conference. I don't recall the exact numbers, but out of 200+ attendees, the majority of participants successfully flew full motion simulators. The event was arranged by the FAA specifically to determine if PC flight would be acceptable someday to log in as "real" pilot simulator training time. My flight during the event can be viewed on youtube at ( ) or just search (Microwings 1994). I am rated for only single engine, land and have type rated no better than a C-172 and had no problem with the Lear 45 simulator. During that same conference, several of us flew a 737 simulator at Southwest's training facility at Love Field. I did fine and a PC pilot after me was given an engine failure on climb out but returned to the airport with a successful emergency landing. I hope this helps. Gene Lacy
