As fun as it is to fly the most recent 2018 release of planes (with APPR) , its also entertaining to challenge myself with VFR planes…
Such as the Cessna 172
I like flying this plane for its realistic purpose. If any novice pilot (at least in my area) wanted to train as a private pilot, you would essentially use a Cessna 172.
It is very sensitive to any changes so it makes for a responsive experience, unlike bigger airplanes .
The point with the Cessna 172 I am currently at, which I find most difficult, is somehow on takeoff! The propeller engine seems to send air under the body of the plane and around the tail which then sends it out of control to the right or to the left… you have to be a PRO with the rudder and VS and Throttle for it to be a smooth take off…
Takeoff Speed: 60
Climb Speed: 90
No Flaps, No Trim
Any one have some pro-tips?
P.S. Most single engine propeller planes are hard as HECK to fly (for me) … I’d rather fly an A380 or 747-8 on the visual.
