    My father was a UAL pilot for a long time, and he hated the 727's.

    He said they were a royal ****** to try and land in the slightest little crosswind. So naturally, wherever he went to land one,...

    OK, I'll try to help if I can.
    First, you can get rid of windowsize_ratio=0.2.
    When size_mm= is specified, it's disregarded. So, the size ratio line is just a space taker.

    What you need to do,...

    I don't know about flying over it in real life, but it's beautiful from the ground!

    The ground squirrels are fearless, and will climb all over looking for treats from you, too.

    My initial training was in a glider. With a stick. THEN I learned to drive. At about the same time, I was learning powered flight in a Citabria. Again, a stick.

    Actually, if you don't want to buy it, you don't have to. If you don't ever buy it, it will keep on working in the "demo" version. Limited functionality. It WILL insert the weather into the sim, same...

    Did you try hitting CTRL+F4 to turn the blowers on? That's the default command to turn the AB's on/off. It's a toggle.

    Can you post the [Engine] section from the aircraft.cfg, and the panel.cfg? ...

    Yeah! What he said.

    It was such a popular $100.00 hamburger stop that we put in an apron, and personnel gate, right across the highway from it. Park, tie down, and just walk across the road. ...

    What I can't believe is that you managed to get that plane off the ground from our runway :D

    Not only is Crater Lake deep, it's sitting in the caldera of an active volcano. Yes, the "crater" part of Crater Lake was formed a long time ago when the volcano it's in blew it's top. The local...

    It looks even better IRL :D

    I don't think the roads are open yet though. Still quite a few feet of snow need to melt down, and we've had some pretty cool weather, slowing the process. It might...

    Sorry, summer "honey-do's" have had most of my time.


    It's because there is no signal coming from an AI ship. It's a built in system in the HUD. For SOME ships, anyway. Yes, Javier's Nimitz is...

    Even as far back as early Grecian literature, there are such stories.

    And yet, we still murder them in huge numbers. Sad, isn't it?
    But they still save humans from drowning, chase away sharks, or...

    The water rushing by as we went up was amazing, although I was never sure if it was the sound of the water moving around me, or me passing out. Once I broke surface, which I felt incredibly grateful...

    Thankfully, the instructors intercepted me before I got to the cliffs, and my feathered friends. Plus, that they figured out a 14 y/o kid had NO experience in hand signals. I am pretty sure that...

    That's the bird I solo'd in, 2 weeks after I started training. I "challenged" ground school, and passed with a 95%, so it was all just the flight time I needed. I worked as the line-boy at the...
