Recently I had a lot of firsts in IF!
a few days ago I had my first missed approach because the 777-300 wouldn’t slow down
I was escorted to EHAM by an F-16 for the first time
yesterday I went down from Grade 4 to 3 for the first time because of a speed violation due to bad wind conditions while flying the Dash
today I was ghosted due to an extremely rare glitch in the system
Which first should I definitely not miss out on?
Yesterday was the first time I had to do pattern work!
You had to? Holding pattern?
I choose to do pattern work often. Never had to before.
Not holding, tower told me to enter left downwind, then received landing clearence, but decided to continue while reporting my position (I got "avoid sending duplicate messages).
After receiving landing clearance, you’re done and you have to land. ;)
Yesterday I crashed into a mountain for the first time in Denver,
Auch! I only did that in solo so far. Fingers crossed!
Makes me remember when I used to crash on purpose.
I once wanted to do pattern work and set my altitude to 1500 ft, not realizing that Denver is at about 5500 ft. When I turned on AP I crashed immediately. I went like: “What the…” before I figured it out. Then I felt ashamed. ;)
I’ve tried crashing on purpose as well, just to see what happens. Only in Solo of course.
I never succeeded in ending up upside down though. I really don’t know how they do that.
Be nice, Zach!!
Now you have to name a mistake! ;)
Oh, OK then Jan…
I got ghosted on Christmas Eve due to a bad controller. LOL
I meant a mistake YOU made! ;)
I always get Missed Approaches / go arounds. Mostly because of the weather, or if the plane in front did not vacate the runway in time. Sometimes I need to do 360s, because come in too high for the runway.
Normal Procedures for me.
I’m just too perfect. ;)
One time I was doing patterns in a Spitfire in NY and crashed… And Henrik was watching me…
So you usually don’t use the glide slope?
I do, but if I come too high I need to make a 360 to get down to the glideslope.
