Re: CTD / 15 Jun 2019 / Cross The Ditch 16

I did make up for it by controlling for 13hrs 13mins yesterday (not bad when I was rostered for 11). A ...

Re: Cross The Ditch 16 Event Appreciation

Glad that you enjoyed yourself Aharon. It certainly was interesting controlling you with FSX default navigation.

Saturday Afternoon in Wellington

Today was a planned day of flying NZWN-YSSY-NZWN. I was rapt to see Fenton Loveday online as NZCH-T_CTR for my arrival and I think everyone else was taking advantage of his ATC with four arrivals into Wellington in quick succession.

Re: Time Zone Fixer

FS Realtime has been in my Toolbox since the first release.

I only ever fly in real time and wouldn't be without it. First thing I checked when I moved to P3D was to make sure that it worked in P3D!
