  3. 50 traps

    Today I did my 50th trap since I installed the new version of VLSO. I never had such high GPA and BR, so let me proudly show it to you
  4. Single Engine Approach

    I managed but I got waved off...I landed nonetheless. Thanks for the advice! It's really tricky though...
  5. Single Engine Approach

    thanks, will give it a try today and report back!
  6. Single Engine Approach

    What is the standard procedure for this? Do you extend the airbrakes? It seems that if I add too much power I cannot control the yaw moment, if I don't, my AoA goes out of control. How do you guys do it?

    Wow, thanks a lot for the explanation! It was very helpful!
  8. Hydraulics & startup - qestions

    Hi, I have 2 questions regarding the startup procedure. Before engine start, the manual says the starter switch should be cycled: left, off, right, off. Why is this needed? I read somewhere it's meant to bleed all remaining hydraulic pressure, should there be any, before testing the HI/LO emergency flight hydraulics. Is this true? Also, after starting the right engine but before starting the left one, you're supposed to crank the left one, hydraulic transfer pump to normal, build about 2500 psi combined pressure, then starter off, hydr. shutoff. Why is this needed? Also, the pressure that builds up like this bleeds off rather quickly if I don't start the left engine right after it. Thanks in advance!

  11. NESA

  12. NESA

    All my traps using the new version of VLSO are "NESA", therefore graded (OK). Otherwise spot on, never low, never fast, etc... I just don't know how NOT to get a NESA. I understand it's all about flying straight on the downwind leg? I fly more than 1 NM ahead of the carrier before I break, and then I start my final turn 1.2-1.3 NM abeam, well after real pilots do. Does it want me to fly back 2-3 NM or what? Any advice would be welcome. Thanks
