Re: Swarm of helicopters

I used to finish my IR renewals at Shawbury . It was a favourite with the CAA examiners in the NW because it is one of the very few ( or was in the 1970 - 1990 period ) which had an offset ILS to IIRC RW 17 . In practice it didn't make it all that much more difficult but it was just another thing to...

My Mother was there : it took them nearly 4 hours to get away at the end

Sad to think that within 2 years both the King and John Cobb would be dead

Re: FS9 Embarrassment Overload

Mike I had this trouble when I changed from XP to W10 It may be worth following the advice given in this link : it's rather a long thread , and you may have to experiment with some of the conflicting views , but it ( eventually ) worked for me : Good Luck https://calclassic.proboards.com/thread/7470...

Re: What's your favourite flightsim?

I agree with Nigel . Dynamically speaking , X-Plane is superior in so many ways to FS, although it takes a bit more getting used to because it has a very much more professional feel to it than FS ever did . It is also rather more demanding in terms of control skilss: by and large it is not a "point ...

Re: Sir Stirling Moss.

RIP Stirling Moss . I always thought his greatest drive of all was to win the Mille Miglia in the 300 SLR with Jenks as the "riding mechanic"/ navigator

Re: Frightning!

Nigel : is it possible that you downloaded the original again ? The one I downloaded was updated on IIRC March 6 or 20, and it is most definitely quite different in the flight dynamics from that which we got a couple of months ago . I wouldn't say I found it easy to fly, and pitch trim took a long t...

Re: Frightning!

Well, I have now tried the March update , and found that it is now flyable. The nose down pitch with reheat has gone, as has the sink below 200 knots , and with a little practice found it possible to achieve a reasonably tidy approach at c.180 knots and landing at about 150 knots .
