So excited! I bought the game Friday about 10 days ago and subbed to pro last Sunday, and today I got to grade 3!
There were a lot of touch and touch and touch and goes at PHNL runway 4R. It’s 9000ft long and has a 15-20kt direct headwind (the xcub can maintain a ground speed of 26kt while flying over the runway) and I got a lot of practice counting to 30 Mississippi. Did some interisland hops, and some trips around the west coast and South America. The scenery is gorgeous.
I was really worried about violations at first but following the few rules was easy enough. Thank you to the ATC between London and Glasgow in training server for understanding when I couldn’t figure out how to contact ATIS before I traveled out of controlled airspace.
The Citation sure is easy flying! The Boeing 717 is a lot fun but every landing seems to be my rendition of Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift. I’m going to get good at this plane.
I did some ground ATC at less populated airports and it’s a ton of fun! I need to read the manual so I’m not messing up other pilots’ experiences.
Thanks for the awesome sim and I hope to see you all out there*!
P.S. Try a 172 or other small plane out of CO68 / CO95. Two fun air strips near Telluride ~9,500ft elevation. The map is positioned funky so both runways are perched on top of tall plateaus!
*Assuming VFR and good visibility.
