Flying controlled airspace by accident.

pilot_002

Today I was doing my usual flights. Morning from ESSV to ESSB and afternoon back again.

 

This morning FS9 crashed to desktop twice. So I did a hunt for bugs and it seems that the flight computer on my Flight1 ATR-72 crash FS on Win 7.

 

So I decided to do the afternoon flight without the FMC and as the ATR-72 have no GPS it would be some real flying.

 

I filed my flight plan and went to work. But when I logged in to VATSIM I saw that I was going to fly in controlled airspace for the first time. Not really prepared for that.

 

It is just to do it and it went so and so but I learned a lot. As I have FSinn on a second computer and I did not get voice to work there was a lot moving around in the cockpit. Fortunately not much traffic so I did get a lot of help from ATC. Happy about that. It is not that easy with all the software. I can do the flying but the rest is new to me. It is totally different from the automatic ATC in FS. But more fun.

 

And FS did not crash. And I got a voice to work in the end so next time I hope for better flying.

  • The view from my house

    I have a very nice view from my house. Lucky me, I spend some time here in Second life. It’s a private place so you never know when it is gone. But I enjoy it for now.

  • ROMANVM that’s a great build.

    This is a great build of ancient Rome. Just walking around made me very impressed.

     

    Well it’s a boys playground. (Why don’t girls have places like this?).

     

    I think everything is in place and they have their own website.

  • Constantly exploring.

    I do some exploring in Second life every day. This place is http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Retrospect/198/170/33

     

    Just checking in and checking out new places. SL still alive and kicking.

  • Started working with the Bento avatar

    Today I made a small step for me. I started to work with the new Bento avatar. It was just a test to see how it works and what you need to do to set it up. As you can see I have not done any texture work on it yet but I will. It looks good, have to start looking at animations next and texture.
