  1. Out into the Blue Pacific

    February 8, 2011.

    Flew out of Hawaii over the volcano heading South, PLCH, Christmas Island. There sure is a lot of empty ocean out here. I cranked up my Marine traffic as high as it will go to see if I could see anything, but still nothing seen. I am flying real weather and so far so good. Just lots of really blue ocean. I set my NDB for 333 and kept a course of about 180-177. Sure enough, there's Christmas Island ahead. I will land on runway 26. I'll send pictures now. ...

  2. To San Diego and beyond

    February 2, 2011

    Today I had a nice flight over to KSEE near San Diego. Most of it around 11,000 feet over the mountains FSX scenery is really pretty. Still using sky vector for my navigation. I really need to think of a way to do it better once I leave the country. The V35 does pretty well on fuel and speed. I ground speed averaged 160 knt.

    Tomorrow I leave for Hawaii. PHT0 on Hilo, I might explore the Hawaiian Islands for couple of days or just continue my journey, ...

  3. Across the USA West

    I am flying this flight real time, so sometimes I hit Escape to place all on hold for a while or I will save a flight and continue when I can. As I get better at this I will include some screenshots.

  4. A quest to be an FSX Earthrounder

    I am a GA flyer and I tend to just fly in the areas I might fly in real life and only in planes I might fly in real life if i was a IFR rated PP.
    I find the Bonanza V35B a lot of fun to fly. It is fast a little complex and has great speed and range.
    I had to virtually add a rear seat secondary fuel tank for the crossings but other than that I plan to fly Real Weather, Time, and Fuel for the trip.

    I decided to do a southerly westbound route after a bit of reading. ...
