It is a lot of fun to fly on Vatsim as Virtual pilot. You get to do flights that you never would thought of. I take a look in the timetable and find new places to go. On the six flights I have made until now, three of them have been to totally new airports I never been to before. And the software records my landing statistics and I find that my passengers have a rough ride. Not dangerous, just a little bit unpleasant.

I have to work on my approach. Landings are ok.

The new newspaper office is online in the new Avalon town. So now i hope to make more new stuff on the artworld in Second life.

Landed at ESMS Sturup. Delivering passengers and cargo

Finally after a lot of training I wanted to do my first flight in controlled airspace. And of course a lot of things went wrong. The new soundcard was acting up. My Widewiew computer died on me and and I had some strange winds on landing so I was going all over the place. But thanks to a nice Sweden_control with some patience I actually made all of the flight.

AND

I had a lot of fun!

 

It is so much more fun to fly the skies with a lot of other pilots and controllers working to make it a fun experience. I think it was ok. When observing I have seen a lot of pilots worse than me and I cant wait to go again.

Landed at ESGG

Today I made my third good landing in a row. Today at ESGG Goteborg/Sweden I followed RISMA 1S down and it worked like clockwork.

 

 

The new hardware setup works but I have had a software crash and I suspect the soundcard. It is terrible when it is on finals and there FS9 often crash. I have bought a second copy of SFX so I can connect Wideview to it. Small investment it is not rally the latest software. As I am running a software company I do not want to use cracked software.

 

 

I have also bought new gauges from INTEGRATED SIMAVIONICS GROUP so I can create a new Airbus panel and start training on jets. I have been flying Flight 1 ATR72-500 for a while now but I does not have the range as a jet. I am left out on a lot of fun flights. But it feels like I do not want to fly something less complicated then the ATR. I really enjoy having the SID and STARS in my FMC. And I think it should take a while to start the plane as in real.

 

Another great day for simulated flying.

ESGG

Finally I made a good landing following RISMA 1S down.

Not perfect but it feels like I am finally getting somewhere. But I have had some more tech problems. Yesterday I had to go to text to talk to ESSA_APR, that was not so good. Having both control and engine sound in the headphones did not work so good so I have put in a second sound card. I really need to hear the engine sound in the background. It is a important key for me to know that I am not doing stupid things and get a stall or overspeed. Now I just hope that the sound system will work. It did not crash the computer. That’s a +1.

 

 

Todays flight was good ESGG is medium sized airport so maybe it is time for Stockholm/Arlanda now the biggest airport in Sweden. But I have to download the maps. I have also spent a few Euros on Navigraph http://www.navigraph.com/ for the latest STAR and SIDS for my FMS. That are well spent money.

 

 

Thinking of buying a jet. But maybe I need a few more pilot hours for that.
