20231214 Thursday 14 December 2023. Hello world, as mentioned in thread 'FS 2002 Graphics in middle', post Dec 14 'G'day boys. Am 'back in the saddle again'. ... ', am starting this thread to share my new adventures. 1 video and 15 still screenshots (taken with handheld camera, screenshot quality isn't good). At the risk of annoying the FlightSim.com gods ('act now, seek forgiveness later') have done for my first time, uploading the .mp4 video file to the Files section of the FS site. As I did a 58 second video of the old, retired, 1981 Mazda 929L car that I'm using as my sim cockpit, didn't seem possible to upload the vid to a post, but could upload it to Files. Put it in 'FS2002 Misc.' category. I just took 4 screenshots from the vid as .jpg, and am posting all 19 .jpg's here. (I did reduce the filesize of all for proper Internet upload.)

 

 

After suffering a life-threatening flood in Feb 2022 that flooded my house to the ceiling, and going through the stress of looking for and buying a new property, this time 2 hectares (5 acres) in the country, flood free, am finally able to settle down and enjoy this flight sim hobby. It has and does give me great satisfaction, joy, peace and community fraternity (via this FlightSim.com website). Intend to post here my new journey. First fire up of the sim was 14 Dec 2023, the default Meigs, flew two circuits, didn't crash! Next will be Brisbane International, Australia, with AI traffic and ATC.


Enjoy, and if interested, say 'g'day mate'!

 

(By the way, by pure coincidence, when doing the video, on the local community (non-commercial) radio 'COW FM' ('Casino's Own Wireless' 107.9 FM, we're cattle country here, was a great Aussie soft-country singer Graeme Connors, with his 1996 (27 years old) hit 'A Road Less Travelled', very apt. So that afternoon was a halycon moment here in the Kyogle hills!)

20231223 Saturday 23 December 2023. YBBN Brisbane International. Learning Air Traffic Control (ATC), the default in-built, so-called Artificial Intelligence (AI), as it existed way back in 2001 when FS2002 was built and released. Rather good, interesting to just sit in a corner of the airfield and watch the planes come taxing along ready to take off from runway '1', being 010 heading, and listen to the radio. A good learning experience. Combining this with the paper manual I have from FS2000 and the FS2002 electronic manual, plus the Rod Machado in-built lessons, it's a good education about ATC.

 

Attached is a collage of 13 screenshots. Numbered from top left, reading left to right. (Need to tune Brisbane Ground to hear taxiing traffic, or Tower to hear taking off and airborne traffic.) Cessna N19896 red, landed. Landmark 4453 takeoff, American Pacific 1249 (IFR to Essendon) [DeHavilland Dash 8], American Pacific 2447 (IFR destination unstated), Orbit 9383 (IFR destination unstated),American Pacific 6479 (IFR Melbourne).

240120 Saturday 20 January 2024. The Great Australian Air Race (this is the Flight Briefing Office, FBO thread, where the chit-chat and flyer stories are, the Official thread has the rules etc. There is also the (now closed) general thread prior to the race commencing Friday 15 January.) Organised by Club Chachapoya. My first for a lot of things: first in a group event; to do proper navigation ('nav'); flying a Cessna 182 Retractable Gear (182RG) instead of my trusty Cessna 172. Did very well, flew from YPJT Jandakot (near Perth, capital city of Western Australia), to YKNG Katanning (a small town about 3.5 hours driving time and 1 hour flying time south-east of Perth.

 

The race isn't about speed, it's about accuracy of flight plan flying time versus actual flying time. From Perth (YPJT Jandakot) to Sydney (YSBK Bankstown), 17 airports. Then there's a 'free-flying' co-event to fly up the east coast of Australia to Cairns, another 9 airports. This adventure will be document here, with many screenshots. There's a great group of guys in the flying 'Gaggle' and it's both very engaging, informative and a lot of fun.
