    Continuing the theme of how proper training can benefit the simmer, I came across an interesting article on the AOPA (Aircraft Owners and Pilot's Association) website. John Olcott who, among other...

    Actually ADE can put things most anywhere, though I think you have to start with an airport reference. I've done things many miles from an airport, such as the parking lot and some buildings on top...

    There are some anomalies in FSX scenery, including flying cars, floating (in the air) buildings, and scenery that is somewhat offset from where it should be. The "water problem" is often exacerbated...

    If the pilot keeps it coordinated, you won't even feel that. If you feel ANY side-to-side movement then the pilot isn't quite doing rudder properly (might be very close, though), though the very mild...

    That's what I suspected, but it's best if he fills in the blanks for us so that we get him the answer he needs.

    You might describe the situation a bit further, including how you know it's the "improper altitude," ATC perhaps? What is "constantly?" Does it mean every five minutes, every 30 seconds, or what? Are...

    OK, not having this new version of the sim, I don't know all the NAV ins and outs, but expected it would be similar to FSX and P3D. Still, sometimes the turns by the real ones are easy to miss,...

    It's at least partly because you are deceived in real life about a "pretty straight cruise." Certainly there are long stretches that are straight, but I suspect there are many turns (done gently,...

    It's been too many years since I had/saw FS9, but in FSX spot view doesn't rotate, although in one mode it is almost like it's on a rubber band during maneuvering. There's a function available to...

    One brief caveat: There are a very few ILSs whose slope is not 3º (should be noted on the approach plate), but usually hitting the APP button a little earlier can still take care of that.

    What is "It," that is, you say "It" is a VOR because you're in the Mooney, but I don't follow that statement, since an ILS isn't a VOR, nor is the city a VOR.
