Made this one some time ago but forgot to upload!

An approach into Lonnie Pool (O54) in Northern California with MSE 2.0 California scenery and FS Global Ultimate Americas add-on.

 

Enjoy!

Dean,  I love this video!  It's easy to jump into something like a 737, fly on autopilot, and land by instruments. But what does this do to real and flight sim airmanship?  It is an issue for both real world and FS enthusiasts.  So to keep my head in the real clouds I remind myself occasionally of what real flying is and keep current with some back to basics flying.  To do that I enjoy firing up Carenado Piper Cherokee 180F and going for a relaxing recreational fly.  Sometimes though, it's not too relaxing if I find my skills have slipped and stuffed a flight.

Your video captures that experience really well. It is well recorded, showing typical types of views and observations a VFR pilot is likely to make.  This was enhanced of course by the MSE California scenery and FS Global Ultimate Americas add-on, illustrated by the external views..  

The quick reference to the GPS is cool; seems like you have the skill of quick interpretation of spatial data on the GPS map. Mate, loved the speed and engine control on final.  Great to see some real airmanship. Want to see more.

One project on my bucket list is how to make and upload videos.

Excellent video Dean, thanks!

 

Agree with Greg about your handling of the approach...very nice use of power to control the rate of descent. This is my kinda flying!

 

Cheers,

Gibbo

I love this type of flying, and with MSE there is always something new to find and new places to explore with every flight. The addition of FS Global Ultimate terrain mesh really makes the mountain areas pop to life, and enhances realism. The side effect though is that you get those "aircraft carrier" elevated airports here and there. This one was particularly bad! 

 

I've just got to find time to record some more now... So much more stunning scenery just in that small area of Northern California!
