    Default T-37 Tweet in early 80's paint scheme

    This was a fun flight, took off from Shaw as it was my last base that I landed and had an IFR flight to Tyndell. Took off around 5:30pm so by the time I got into Fla the sun was just starting to set.

    landing was a little difficult as I was getting very low on gas. First attempt was a go around. In 2004 the speed brakes don't extend yet so I came in alittle fast the second time :(

    This is an awesome file!

    payware file from a instructor pilot. The Airforce is actually using this file now to help train some of the recruits who were failing out.

    I would really like to hear your thoughts on this. It's not completed for 2004 yet due to no SDK's but it's bells running in 2002

    [font color="blue" size="2" face="face"]Hey, nice! That airliner must have been hellishly close! Either that or the passenger/pilot had an extremley good zoom! It would have to be good to get pictures of that quality! Well done![/font]

    I think using Flight Sim is a great tool for pilot training. I understand from my nephew who flew P-6 Orion’s in the Navy, they’re giving a copy of Flight Sim to all pilot candidates when they get to Pensacola. I know I wish I had it when I went through Air Force training in Columbus.

    No sim will ever be so perfect it takes the place of real flying. But there are so many things you can learn and learn well in the sim.

    Navigation is high on that list. Looking at your VC pictures and browsing the T-37 site I see a faithful reproduction the Tweet cockpit and nav instruments, particularly the RMI. There is no doubt you could use the sim to help learn cross-country navigation, fix-fix flying, shooting approaches etc.

    The most frantic part of a flight comes just after takeoff. You are flying with many other students in the pattern, talking on the radio, trying to fly an instrument departure to the practice area, all the while wishing your instructor would just SHUT UP!! The sim is a great tool for learning that departure and impressing your IP.

    You also get a great feel for the terrain in the local area in FS that would be a tremendous help before getting into the real airplane.

    Believe it or not, I actually use the sim (with virtual cockpit) to brush up on my formation flying. The references for finger tip flying still work in the sim!!

    When I was a student, we spent hours of time in static Link trainers just practicing cockpit procedures and chair flying. Flight Sim would be a welcome addition to this training.

    By the way, here are some more pictures from my Air Force days:

    First; pictures of pilot training (UPT) T-38 phase at Columbus MS. Boy I loved that jet!!! Like a personal sports car, fast, maneuverable... you didn't sit in it, you wore it!!

    Hero pictures of my operational ride in the Air Force… the greatest plane in the world (at the time) the “Electric Jet”, the “Viper”, the “Lawn Dart”, the mighty F-16 Fighting Falcon.

    Hope these ideas helped.
