Not many people that are in flight simulation can claim to have their father be a part of their hobby. I’m happy to say that’s the case for me!

 

Hey Dad, this trip looks amazing, I wish I could follow you along. But instead, I can follow it here! And I love that you’re taking the DC-6 on this trip, seems very appropriate :) Thanks for sharing, and keep going!

 

Your son,

Yesterday I started the first part (Port Said - Asmana in Eritreia, 1,048 nm) of the second leg (Port Said - Bombay) of the around the world in 80 days. I was hard due the several MSFS 2020 Crash To Desktop. Its insane how we still can not design software efficiently. How can we imagine to develop systems to operate thousand of sattelites with the kind of programmers we have today!! Its dramatic! Running just the NVidia video recording and the MSFS 2020, I just went to finish starting the engines to have a CTD. Using only MSFS and Volanta we could reaxh 9,000 ft while climbing to have the CTD, It was terrible. Finally I managed to arrive over Asmana, (after starting again two hours early, over Berenice to have another CTD. It seems that we have a long way to have a MSFS that could stand some hours flying without shut downs.

The flight from Port Said (HEPS) to Asmania (HHAS) took 4h44 consuming 10,506 lb of Avgas, (planned 4h18 and 8,948 lb by Simbrief, but with so many CTD it seems resonable).

Please read Asmara, in place of Asmania or Asmana.

Great pics. Interesting route. I’m in Dubai tonight. Crossed the Saudi desert today from Jeddah to Dubai with a stop at Riyadh. For some reason I can no longer upload photos as it says too large. Good luck with your next leg.

On Jan 5th I made a flight from Muscat to Mumbai on the same route I will use with the DC6 flight (proceeding the around the world trip), using just VORs, (for the DC6 has no GPS). So I went throught Iran, Pakistan and India, via their interior,

just to know their geography.

The flight itself was very beautiful, but the arrival at Mombai was amazing, 30 nm out the visibiity was great, no clouds, but over the city, which is huge, there was a very thick fog cover. Really we could see the consequence of the population

burning wood to cook. The smoke induced the fog formation. You can see it on the following pics:

5 - Smog at Mumbai

On July 7th I returned to Muscat flying an Air India A320Neo to join the Panair do Brasil DC6 that is doing the around the worls trip. That was a normal high altitude A320 flight, on a direct route over the Indian Ocean.

On July 8th, I continued the DC6 flight arund the world, flying from Muscat to Mumbai, via Iran and Pakistan to India, because all the flights with the Panair do Brasil DC6 navigates using just VORs and ADFs. There is no GPS

equipment on board. For oceanic routes I will use celestial navigation. The flight to Mumbai was made with good weather conditions. I coud see that over all very populate indian cities that was always smog (smoke plus fog).

Even nowadays most part of the indian people heat their food burning wood, which generates a big quantity of smoke. At Mumbai the visibility was below 2,000 m, by the way exactly the same situation I had in 2004, while I have been there

to demonstrate a Embraer Legacy aircraft. Pics follow:

On July 9th, while waiting for the next leg on the around the world trip, I decided to fly within India to places that I didn´t know and to revisit some towns where I already have been. 

To start with I flew from Mimbai to Kolkata on a Airbus 320 Neo, made by Asobo, with Air India livery. The plane is not already completed and many systems are not yet simulated. Mainly 

the FMS is lacking several important features, but was very pleasant to try it on this leg. See some pics:

2 - Asobo A32N panel

3 - Using Navigraph charts while on cruise

4 - Approaching Kolkata

5 - Over Kolkata

6 - At a gate on Netaji Subash Chandra Bose Kolkata airport

On the next day, Jan 10th, flying an FlightByWire Air India A 320 Neo, I went from New Delhi to Hyderabad, on a ih44min flight. This Airbus, although a work in progress, 

is very well done. Some of its systems are not yet completed, but its seems to be more than 90% complete. The visibility in Delhi was better than when I arrived.

On the same day I proceed from Hyderabad to Chennai, flying an Asobo Boeing 787-10, with an Air India livery. It took just 51 minutes burning 5,129 kg of fuel. The cruise level was 35,000 ft. Temperature was 28C at Chennai, and the visibility was good

for the first time on a big city in India, during this trip. Chennai before 1996 was known by Madras. Pics:
