I could never land my Mooney consistently. I was either too fast and bounced or too slow and bounced. I also put it on the nose wheel a couple of times. Rick showed me it was all about the ‘picture’ not just the speed.
They can fail systems that you think would never fail. This is the way to learn how to handle emergencies.
I was paying money to learn a G1000 system in the plane when the sim got me farther down the road quicker and for less money.
They told me the sim was more difficult but when I got in the plane it would be easier. Boy were they right.
Consistency on the gauges in instrument conditions was lacking. No one ever talked to me in training about ‘attitude instruments’. I worked with Rick for two hours and I was shocked how it became second nature to fly the instruments and put the plane where I wanted it to go.
Let the guys give you instrument proficiency or instrument training then go fly your aircraft in instrument conditions. You will be able to tell the difference and you become totally confident in flying on the gauges.
The method of an engine failure on a multi engine aircraft is fine for a check ride but in real life you better have it nailed. I got worked out on the “steps” to doing it right. Thanks Rick.
Love the new machine. We flew the “Miracle on the Hudson” and I swear once we ditched the jet it started rocking gently like a boat. Very realistic….and FUN!
The AST G1000 simulator is an accurate G1000 sim.
Looking forward to using the full motion SIM.
