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.
I have found this simulator invaluable. There is no dead time when you are working on a specific skill.
It was pretty darned convincing like an airplane. A+
I generally really, really hate simulators but this one pulled me in.
