Alabeo Cessna 207 Flying KBOK Brookings to KOTH North Bend

Today I fly the C207 from Brookings Airport to North Bend which is along the Southwest Oregon coastline. Rather that use the GPS we look at flying a basic plan using VOR navigation and then load the procedure to take us in for an ILS landing on runway 04 using the Garmin 530.

Carenado Piper Archer PA28 – CBR2 – CZNL Short Flight

Today I take a look at the Carenado Piper Archer as a viewer requested it and I thought I’d dust her off and take her for a short flight from CBR2 to CZNL.

My First PMDG Aircraft – Boeing 737NGX

Yesterday I bought my first PMDG product the Boeing 737NGX. I wasn’t entirely sure if I wanted the Prepar3d version or the FSX version but in the end went with P3D because it has a development roadmap and FSX doesn’t. Today I’m spending a bit of time doing the starting tutorials and there’s a lot of nice detail within the documentation that explains what things do which is awesome.

pmdg737_p3dpmdg737_p3d_2Initially I seemed to have very poor frame rates but after some tweaking of the settings it around an acceptable 25+ frames after I set the frame rates to unlimited in the settings. It really is a nicely developed aircraft and I can see why the FSX community loves PMDG but I have to admit, I wish I had this aircraft in X-Plane instead of P3D.
