  1. +5 By the way I take the chance to congratulate Aerosft's management for contributing so much to our community, by giving us superior quality addons, at competitive prices. Truly, everytime you release something new, I feel I have to buy it, even if it's in the other side of the world! Congratulations and keep on going!
  2. Hi Israel, Check out this one: Of all the ones i've tried, it's by far the best and most realistic. Orbiter is great for exploring the universe, this one is excellent ti simulate the Shuttle. I love that feeling taht i'm gonna crash on the glide-in, after many hours of a sucessfull mission... Have fun. g.
  3. Ari nav pro. I use it for real life piloting, but it now interfaces with FSX. neat tool!
  4. Dear Matt, You're held liable for repairing the broken windows in my house! And more, I met the local police yesterday evening and he told me you'd get a speeding fine. Who let those guys in anyway?!?! Cheers, g.
  5. Toby, you should participate anyway! The more the merrier! Matt, any news?
  6. I agree it will be very difficult to make all online at the same time, but we can fly using vatsim or the andras server and with teamspeak tuned on the andras channel. That way we can talk to whoever is also flying along. Sumarizing, everyone should fly online, but with no fixed timings.
  7. Well, always looking for a good reason to fly. I'm most probably IN. Go for it Matt.
  8. Teamspeak server working OK, but I can't connect via gamespy. Anyone tried?
  9. And cool it is! Ole, Can I claim anotehr Aerosoft prize for wining phase 5? cheers, g.
  10. Me three. Will try to put wife on hold and join the party. Indeed I'm happy to know about the GS server being up again. will see if I can log some time tonight
  11. The aerosoft servers were down, and as I posted here, I was unable to log on to VAE or to make a new registration on time since it needs to be accepted. By the time someone created a session, I had moved on with my life and sadly. At least with me and Toby we would have been 4. No need for sulking...
  12. well guys, the gamespy and TS3 servers still seem to be offline, and i'm unable to recover my password at VAE since it says my account doesn't exist. It must have been deleted... Any ideas?
  13. just arrived home, hope to see you guys in an hour for the final flight of the RTWC
  14. Thanks Ole! Please people don't forget, the adventure is still pending completion with the online flight ensemble into Andras Field! I miss home... ;-)
  15. Congratulations to everyone that finished. That was the main goal here. What an adventure, and what fine time spent in the cockpit (! A special note to Andreas, well done mate! What a fantastic score you achieved!
  16. Hi guys, Here go my 3 favourite approaches during this Phase 5. The first one represents what I call champagne flying: nicely settled on a VFR short final to Nice airport. This second one is was my favourite approach. A beautiful dusk arrival into Verona on the DC-3. Isn't it wonderful? Finally, an extremely difficult approach into Venice. I confess I overshot the minima ... The DC3 is really difficult for IFR flying!
  17. Here it goes, the final solitary flight of our journey! Naturally, out of the many ordeals undergone through the extraordinary days rounding the world, I would qualify this last leg certainly on the top 3, and maybe even the most challenging. After departing Wien in winds of 22G30, i had planned a Z flightplan (VFR-IFR) direct to the RASTA intersection where I should arrive on marginal VFR @ FL150 and switch to IFR into LOWI. The thing is, long before that, I was already totally envelopped by clouds. Thad wouldn't have been a problem on itself since that altitude would keep me safe from the mountains in the Arlberg, but those clouds, they were really nasty buggers, full of cold moist and ice. As a result, my Baron 58 started accumulating too much of it to the point it would stop flying and its protection mechanisms were not enough. I had to descend and ask for rerouting. At about FL100 things improved a lot, so I got cleared to proceed direct to Salzburg, from where I could avoid the most mountainous areas and fly at 9.500ft direct to the IAF at Rattenburg. From there, you know the drill, offset ILS to decision height which for me on this flight was 850AGL because I needed to be able to turn off the ILS and switch FSFS to approach mode before the 500ft. Otherwise the scoring would have been even more miserable... The near zero visibility gave away at 1.000ft, from where I could see the approach lights, and managed to land sucessfully, but of course with 35kts gusts and one that had to come right on the flare to get me a "balooning" penalty... Well whatever. Anyway, it was a nice (part) finale to this adventure. Congratulations to all of those who made it back home! What a feat!
