A traffic pattern that is.

9/23/2014 This one was pretty straightforward, mostly touch and gos all evening, but lots of traffic in the pattern. At one point, including me, there were two C172s and a C182 (that had been doing maneuvers to the north earlier) in the pattern, with an Air Tractor taking off. It was during this time, after a few circuits with most of the traffic, that we went a few miles east, did a couple quick steep turns while the traffic cleared out, then headed...

The Moon

I got tired of trying to rendezvous so I decided to try to go to the moon. With this I decided to be smart and watch some more videos like I did before so I did and first time I didn't slow down enough and zoomed right by it. Second I had a real bad course correcting to make and ran out of fuel doing it. Now I know I could have used unlimited fuel or use the scenario editor to give my self more but I like it realistic so I tried again. Took took about six or seven more times...

My adventures with Oribter so far Part II

I'll try not to make this one so long


In between trying to make a perfect orbit and using the deltagliderIV I tried some rendezvous. I watched more of guide I mentioned before and tried it while watching and without watching it.l Obviously I was bad the first few times but I'm getting them down. I shot past the ISS several times and by pure luck I managed to match it's speed and have a successful one at 25k and nowhere near where you could dock. I don't...

I realized how long this was going to be so I decided to put it into parts.

Part: Taking off and going for orbit
Well I said in the meet and greet thread

Flight 10 - The IFR conditions are simulated, but the failures are real

Aug 12, 2014 - Flight 10 started as a pretty typical lesson. Preflight, runup, takeoff were uneventful, considering the 9-kt right quartering crosswind.

Out to the practice area, about 15-20 miles out, and on with 'the hood.' I'd done this before, but only for about 20 minutes. Plan was to get around a full hour in. We came in just shy at 0.8, leveled out at 3500, then descended to 2500 (still under the hood) and headed for the airport via GPS.

About 5 miles...
