Hello Guys

Post by ag-airline » Wed Jul 08, 2009 1:13 pm

my cousin is real pilot{private} he owns and fly's a Cessna 172 And he lives In Pa and I live in jersey so I have taxed too get gas with him and pushed in the throttle a bit. My qeustion is what should I EXPECT when I DO GO UP IN the air.


Ps. that flight I was telling you got canceled because It was windy And my cousin only fly's in sunny weather with no rain snow or wind and hardly any clouds cause he don't have the part of his license to fly in the clouds.

Honestly, I don't get your question... or why he does not fly when there is any wind. The wind will just shorten his t/o distance (unless you have bad crosswind) and either shorten/extend your enroute time.

He is not IFR rated, so no flying in the fun stuff. :wink:

Why not crank up the wind in FS and take up a 172.....you'll probably end up with a really mediocre simulation of what it might be like in real life. :P

the puffier the clouds, the bumpier the ride!
