Re: What Was Spirit Like Before Becoming a ULCC?

I used to fly them in the early/mid 2000s from ORD-RSW/FLL. They had first class, more coach leg room, and didnt charge for everything. They were also much cheaper than AA or UA and on par with ATA and Airtran. I remember paying $29 each way more than once. When they switched to ULCC, I switched air...

Re: X-Plane 11 Controllers... Stick VS Yoke?

Re: Flight Simulator Home cockpit project

Welcome to ANET. The videos look amazing! Do you mind showing the photos of actual physical setup? Maybe a video to guide the viewers through how its all hooked up and why you chose particular components might be of interest to many. Hello and Thank you! I'm planning a video that tours the setup so...

Re: X-Plane 11 Controllers... Stick VS Yoke?

Yoke. Ch pro yoke works well with all commercial and fighter jets and is inexpensive. There are much better, more expensive yokes out there though so depends if you want force feedback or not. In my home cockpit I have 2 CH Pro yokes and they work just fine, but at some point id like to get the forc...

Re: Student Pilot Question

Yep galaxyflyer is correct. You don’t need anything immediately but usually around 20 hours you’ll solo and you’ll need the student license/medical to do so. If I remember correctly, the medical functions as your student license. It’s been years since I was in training so I’m not 100% sure. Good luc...

Re: Flight Simulator Home cockpit project

I’m a long time flight simmer from the beginning days of FS1. I love the PMDG 737. Fs2020 looks pretty cool too but I have not read up on it much. Nice setup on those videos. I’m jealous!!! Thanks! I’ve been flying flight sims since fs95 and on. X-plane 11 is another animal, it’s the program I day ...

I’m running X-Plane 11 and mostly use the Zibo-mod 737-800, however I just purchased the Flight Factor 757 and 767 exte...
