Where Are You In The FS World, Right Now?

Fri Feb 18, 2011 9:25 pm

Hello,

Well the topic title says it all. Where are you now, if you are flying in the flight simulator world?

I'm currently at FL370, heading 120, approaching EYZEL (NE of the Turks and Caicos Islands) waypoint en route from IAD to SXM flying a United Airlines 777 on a cruise ship charter flight.

I've just caught up with Jetblue 821 flying from JFK to SDQ.

Flew this out from EGBB to LMML earlier

Had this livery painted for the PMDG 738w as a homage to the first jet I ever flew on in 1986. Kind of like having my own personal VA

I have not flown for over a week, I am still at my last destination, which was OVB. I've been looking for another freeware airport in Russia to fly to, but I cannot find one that I want to fly to that is in a reasonable area. My plans now are to fly to ALA, which will give me a good jumping point back into Russia to continue my Russian journey. Before I make this next flight, I need to install the scenery for ALA and also verify my AI traffic files to see if I have everything that operates into ALA installed. It might still be a few days until I fly...or longer if my current obsession with Test Drive Unlimited 2 on the PS3 doesn't let up.

Flying DL 747-400 JFK - NRT about 2 hours after i land.

I always fly at Real-time, How about you guys? Do you fly at Real-time? Or Do you use the fast-time feature of the flighsim?

I use FS Passengers. Adds a little realism to it when there is a problem to cope with once in a while.
With the stall, yea, flat spin I guess, that I was not spinning. I was flat, unable to turn or do anything really. Could not get any speed up at all to get out of it.

I fly offline, so I can see my heavily tweaked AI in action. I used to fly online when I was in a virtual airline, but that was years ago. If could see my AI while online, then it would be great!

For the first time in weeks, I flew. I finally put down the PS3 gamepad and gave Test Drive Unlimited 2 a break and flew OVB to ALA....kind of. At about 40 miles out of ALA, FS9 stopped responding and crashed to the desktop. I am going to give it another go as the scenery for both airports is lovely.

For my next flight I am going to break my usual pattern, usually I fly from where I last landed. However I saw an unusual route on Flightaware.com that I am going to fly. There is a GA airport near my work, PWK, and I saw a flight from SXM to PWK in a Falcon 2000 earlier this week. I am going to reverse the flight, flying from PWK to SXM this weekend to escape the cold and snow we are supposed to get in the Chicago area. I do not have a Falcon 2000 model, but I have some other bizjets and will use one of them.

Parked at EKVL, admiring the Denmark Scenery & Danish Base Scenery package in effect - while cursing whoever at DanVFR (who supplied their mesh for the former) decided not to fix the Swedish coastlines. Since installing the mesh means disabling the default coastlines, that spills over to Sweden as well, leaving me stuck with square coastlines!

Hmmm, I NEVER call Flight Simming a "game" or "play the game", maybe because I fly on Vatsim, online only, and follow all real world "flight procedures and rules"  
Anyway, currently in KOAK [Oakland,CA] after short VFR ferry flight from KMRY [Monterey Bay,CA].

Maybe because I have a lot of real flying and real ATC, so for me FS is a game where I can fool around and do weird stuff which I cannot and don't want to do in real life

I'm doing those a lot with the B747-8i. Absolutely love flying from Narita to Los Angeles! Very decent gusts helping you along that route - quite fast.  Best I've had so far is 635kts GS, which is slow compared to what some of them in the real world manage.

For the past few days I have been trying to do a relief supply mission into Japan with a VI An-124. However I keep on crashing when trying to land. I am using the FS9 An-124 from Thomas Ruth and even have upgraded the FDE. I've given up on the An-124 and will redo the flight with a RU (AirBridgeCargo Airlines) 747-400F.

Yeah, that's a long flight. but go LAX-NRT, a lot longer.
633 knots isn't too bad, pretty fast already. My real life fastest was 645 knots from ORD to FRA on MD11F.
