A viewer asked that I do more night flights, and as I have nighttime pattern work coming up in my real-world instruction, I took it as an opportunity to simulate it here. I did so at about 11:45 PM, and the flight became a lesson in human factors. As always, thanks for watching,
The point-to-point flights continue with a leg from Great Falls to Billings. This was a fun flight, and it illustrates both the solid default X-Plane 11 textures and the incredible ortho4xp photographic scenery as I did not burn ortho tiles for the entire flight. Also: thoughts on the Airfoil Labs C172, Windows Creators Edition, ForeFlight, and fun with and autopilot we don’t fully understand. As always, thanks for watching.
Remember 1984? I sure do …
I’ve had several viewers request a float plane flight in X-Plane 11. I did several in P3D, and liked it a lot, so here’s one in XP. Nothing serious or realistic about this flight – I even forgot to turn on the avionics. It was fun, including the low approach over the boats, but I do miss the sound of the water against the pontoons that I had in P3D.
In my last point-to-point video it took about an hour to fly from Kalispell to Great Falls. Here I’ve compressed that video so the flight takes just two minutes and forty-eight seconds. I did this to better illustrated the very natural transition that xEnviro created from overcast with limited visibility to clear skies. Pretty amazing.
The music? It’s just for fun. As always, thanks for watching.
