In this episode I talk about my May purchases for P3Dv4 (Orbx Australia, Orbx Melbourne International and Aresoft Frankfurt), my time long hauling it in the QualityWings 787 in FSX:SE, and some install problems that MegaSceneryEarth has. Enjoy your May flying. I’ll most likely see you next month!
In this episode I review The QualityWings 787 for FSX. My general reaction is that it is a disappointing release that flies poorly and lacks fidelity in the required automation systems. I also talk about The VAS issues that Orbx Arlanda suffers from in FSX noting that wouldn’t be an issue is P3D V4. Finally I talk about the future of the podcast. Check out On Approach for an additional podcast you can listen to.
In this episode I talk about what I am learning from the manual QuailityWings released for their upcoming 787. I also talk about where the 787 will fit into the fleet of my personal VA. Finally, I insult P3D user and talk about how I am going to milk my FSX investment for as long as I can. It is no doubt an ego thing on both sides.
In this episode we talk with Rob Burgon about his new job flying the 737. We talk about how the aircraft has the overhead panel that brings you back to the 60s when it was designed while the instrument panel features the glass cockpit you’d expect from a modern airliner. We also talk a little about the reality of choosing a plane to fly in a modern airline .
You can find Rob’s book Piano Burning and Other Fighter Pilot Traditions here. We interviewed him about his book in Season 3 Episode 5 of FSRideAlong.
