My First 100% FSPassenger rating!

Sphagnum1 Guest

I've gotten hooked on this FS Passenger deal, and tonight I did my first real 100% flight. Well, 2nd technically, but the first one was so easy it was almost a gimme! I flew from KSFO to KDFW in Dallas, TX. I took off at dusk, meaning I would obviously land at night, but didn't realize the weather would be terrible! The whole approach I had to hold around 10 degrees off the runway to conpensate for the wind. Lightning was striking everywhere! It was really pretty exciting, but really really hard. I had to go around after not feeling comfortable putting her down on the first try. I'm glad I left myself an extra 10 minutes to get there cause my final flight time was only 3 minutes long. Smile

I haven't posted much here, just a little, but I've been reading these forums religiously in an effort to improve my flight in the 2 weeks I've been Sim Flying. Thanks guys... Here are my stats...

Absolutely beautiful! Great landing, especially with the weather. My only suggestion...for such a long flight, you might want to increase your cruise altitude, you'll get better fuel mileage, and will fly considerably faster.

The rules for altitudes above FL18 are that aircraft traveling west are at even altitudes. The way I remember it, is that if I am coming from the East, then I should be an an Even altitude. For example, you going East were right to be at FL21, an aircraft going the flying Dallas to Seatle would be at FL22, therefore if you were on the same jetway, you'll have 1,000 feet of seperation.

That's for the pointer, Noworries. I have heard the east-west rule but I'm still kinda at a loss at deciding what FL to be at. I generally just pick something between 20-25, but if I'm going 2000 miles, should I be up at 30 or more? Is there a good guide for this written up somewhere on this forum? I'd appreciate the pointer.

If you fly jet aircraft, you shound almost ALWAYS fly at or above FL300. This helps keep fuel burn low. Unless the flight is less than 45 minutes, that is. In that case, fly around FL200-250 range.
