Hi guys, I just created For the Love of AVIATION here for the forum as an educative and entertaining share, whenever I found a rare gem, but this will be my first. As with treasure/gem hunting there will be no periodical time frame for this series. Also, dunno if this “serial theme” should be posted here in General so please just kindly re-direct me to the right corner.
Why I post this:
For some of us here, this video presentation could be used to appreciate and level up our Infinite Flight experiences, it was too good and I got mesmerized watching the whole thing from start to finish, prompting me to really really wanted to share this to the whole IFC community!
What’s it all about:
It is a vintage video posted by the Computer History Archives Project on youtube, showing how high-tech, detailed and immaculate flight planning procedure was just a couple years after the 50’s ended… only 60 years after the Wright Brothers’ Kitty Hawk flight! The video is about pre-flight perfection.
Who this video is for:
If you love all the pre-calculation procedures and hassles you do before your Infinite Flight departures (particularly when you’re in a VA usually; using timers, windy.com, aiming to show off that perfect fuel consumption report, considers temp, baro and take-off charts seriously, I even created several print-outs for my own use!), if you love manual perfection and details to your Infinite Flight pre-flight procedures for that perfect no drama, smooth as silk straight on the center line take-off - then I’m sure you’re gonna love learning from this piece of history.
I never even knew that Precise Time to the Second for Vr is a thing!
So here goes, let’s start the time machine… Folks, never take (your easy peasy) modern flight planning for granted again after this show, get some snacks and enjoy the video!
