    Where I really flew today

    KORD to KDEN to KSJC on United. While on the KDEN/KSJC leg of my trip, I looked out the window and saw this:

    As good as Asobo's MSFS clouds are (and I'm quite happy with them), I don't...

    Not sure what your mess is. Can you describe it? If the sim is still otherwise running okay (no eruption of CTDs), I'm assuming your "mess" has something to do with the Nxi not performing as you...

    KWVI to KMRY, rinse and repeat

    I have flown (and will today fly several more) short flights in the G36 between Watsonville and Monterey to nail down ILS approaches with the G1000 NXi. I use a Logitech multipanel to engage and...

    KSAF to KSKX to KAXX

  6. Update steps in Steam Edition

    After I opened Steam and clicked "play" to start MSFS today, first there was a small update on Steam (to MSFS, I think), next MSFS opened with the "checking for updates" screen, then MSFS minimized...

    KABQ to KSAF

    Albuquerque to Santa Fe in the G36, nothing unusual to report. Took off from RWY 3 at KABQ and landed at KSAF, ILS RWY 2. I saw a lot of New Mexico in my other life, when I was still skiing. Santa Fe...

    KPMI to KMMH back for more

    I enjoyed the scenery along this route so much yesterday, I decided to do it again -- in the Beech G36 instead of the DA40 -- and without a detour into Yosemite Valley. I flew the RNAV course to RWY...

    I don't think the World updates are as problematic as the Sim updates. For example, I had no problems after the previous World update, but I had a world of trouble after Sim Update 5. I ascribe most...

    If I were you, I would ditch the MSFS training. You obviously have learned enough to take off and land. For what it's worth, I think mastering landing is three-fourths of the battle; it took me...

    KMPI to KMMH (Yosemite-Mariposa to Mammoth Lakes

    Decided to do some more pure flying today and took the DA40 for a sightseeing trip to Yosemite National Park. I flew into Yosemite Valley (which no RL pilot would do. ... I hope), climbed out, and...

    Greenhouses! Well, they sure fooled me; they look like misplaced office buildings.

    Yes, you're right, they're northeast of the airport. It's a wonder I can find my way around at all in MSFS...

    I looked it up, and saw it was a real thing. Has MSFS run okay since you added it? (I assume it's in the community folder.) How does it handle? I have a couple of ultralights, but I haven't used them...

    Neither have I, but I've never flown there either. That aside, is that plane the new one I saw in the in-sim marketplace recently? It looked interesting, but it didn't look like it was highly rated....

    Weird buildings near Watsonville

    I was thinking last night that now that I can consistently land any GA prop plane with power, I should practice landings in the C152 without it.

    I flew the G36 with the G1000 NXi out of Santa Maria for an ILS approach and landing on RWY 11 at KSBP. Then I flew the G36 back to KSMX to try my hand at an RNAV/VNAV/LPV approach to RWY 12 there....
