    Oh, and monitoring the emergency frequency is now "highly recommended". I've seen video of people who flew to close to the President and got an F-15 escort to an airport different than their own...

    If you are a ham radio operator, even without the license for the aviation radio, you are allowed to use any means at your disposal to attract attention to an emergency. Although, I personally would...

  8. Paris Air Show Day One recap, a Youtube video I found today

    You're right. I actually read this in one of Richard Bach's books, and that is what he meant. I just misremembered it from the time I took off from El Mirage Adelanto (formerly L69) to go to Southern...

    Since it was only 5 to 8 seconds, I would not say that this is "automatic rough" that comes from descending into denser air. It really sounds like the pilot made the mixture too lean and then went...

    I love that photo. I actually think that a person trying to break the record with FS might find it hard to get along with the other pilot for that long. For some reason, it seems to me that the...

    That building does look about halfway down the runway. And Port Angeles is not in the vicinity of Seattle - it's 61 NM away.

    All I heard was the Max's were marketed at being similar enough to the 737-900 that no new training was needed. It might have been another Boeing bad business decision overriding normal standards,...

    I couldn't find that airplane for FSX in the "Files" section, but I noticed that Carenado used to make the Dakota for FS 2004. It seems odd that they didn't make an FS X version that works with...

    This isn't quite the answer you are looking for, but here in the States I've heard Boeing Field ATIS announce closure of part of a taxiway to aircraft with a wingspan over a certain amount. I'm sure...

    Please don't quote me, but I think in the situation you allude to, it would be better to fly to an airport with better weather conditions. Forty-five minute's reserve fuel takes you way further in a...
  18. Opinions on the new better colors with MegaSceneryEarth?

    Gang,

    MegaSceneryEarth is rolling out new sceneries of the US states. The colors are supposed to be more realistic and I wonder if anybody who's bought them has an opinion.

    It appears that they...

    YES! American airliners are made for five foot tall and thin persons, but those are the luxury models that don't have an economy class - all the seats are "Business Class" on those :)

    Rick,

    Once in a while when I print something out at the copy store, I'll have them bind it for me, too. For checklists, it would be best if they could be narrow and coil-bound. This is the way the...

    Rick,

    Thank you thank you - I will be over to the copy store to print some of these out. Maybe the King Air and Cessna 152 and 172 R-S. Found the Beech 18 on the real a/c checklists site, too....
  22. Looking for plane model with more responsive/realistic gauges

    Gang,

    I got my Qref checklists for the Cessna 172 (except "M" through "P" models instead of "R" and "S" like in FS X). I find myself wanting a C172 with more responsive gauges than the one...

    I'll do that. I don't have any 707 on my FS X machine. I just landed the 747 and - it just doesn't feel like an airplane to me. What I am going on is YouTube videos of the 707, showing it rolling a...

    Adjusting stability?

    Gang,

    I have Abacus Military Adventure's KC-135 (based on the Boeing 707) for FS9. I like it because it seems to have less roll stability than the airliners that come with FSX, and I've seen...

    That is amazingly long for a flight. I know that in FS X, it is possible to set one of the realism settings to "unlimited fuel", so that way you would be able to do the flight in a similar aircraft...
