Hypergrid travelleling reporter and photographer for art space Magazine. VATSIM pilot and IVAO Tower controller. Building my own simulator.
Walking around Tabula rasa and found that Jessica Belmer have her own gallery there. She is one of my fav photographers so go take a look.
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.
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.
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.
Come and get our T-shirt it is free.
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.
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.
