RJBB General Kansai is a new airport with good facilities. There are two parallel runways 06L/R and 24L/R. The arrival into Kansai is pretty straight forward if you get runway 06L/R. If you get runway 24L/R however, the workload is considerably higher. Transporting the CIA A-12 Blackbird By Frank Murray, A-12 Pilot and Roadrunners Internationale Historian The Challenge of Transporting the A-12s to Area 51 - V.2 Foreword: This piece of the History of the Lockheed A-12 is dedicated to the memory of Dorsey G. Kammerer.
Flight Training: Pre Solo Courses and Quizzes ASI Airport Markings Flash Cards These handy flash cards, prepared by the Air Safety Institute, are a handy way to learn the meanings of airport surface markings. What may look like randomly striped lines on taxiways and runways actually convey critical safety information to pilots, communicating where they can and cannot go. [XPGFS] NOAA Weather XPGFS brings alive the x-plane atmosphere, providing 7 layers of real wind and 8 turbulence layers using fresh data downloaded from NOAA servers. Provides correct upper wind levels and jet-streams over the globe and close-to real weather on remote locations without a close METAR report. Features:
RouteFinder (free access area) // 2010-02-17 15:54:00 //Fixed a problem with North Atlantic Tracks. Recently many airways west of Ireland were withdrawn and the NATs became unconnected, giving RouteFinder a really hard time to find routes between Europe an Americas. The system now does a pseudo random routing in that area (with DCT segments) to jump the gap. // 2006-04-08 06:10:00 // Please note that some airports (more and more of them lately in Europe) have arrival connecting points that cannot be reached from cruising level. If you find that the system does not use the correct arrival, or if it can't find a route at all, try specifying a lower limit in the route request. For example, instead of FL330 - FL330, try FL230 - FL330. First Person: My Uncle Was First to Fly Over Everest Eighty years ago this month, my uncle steered his open-cockpit Houston-Westland biplane toward Tibet, a young explorer hoping to be the first to set eyes on the summit of Everest. Uncle Douglo is how I've always thought of him, but his name was Douglas Douglas-Hamilton, Marquis of Douglas and Clydesdale. Most people knew him as just Clydesdale. Also with him, as "observer," was Stewart Blacker. Although primitive by today's standards, their plane was a marvel of its day, with its supercharged Pegasus engine capable of soaring above 40,000 feet.
FSDreamTeam - GSX Ground Services X for Microsoft Flight Simulator X FSX Purchase Method GSX is a Try-Before-Buy product. You will freely download a Demo version, that will work in full at all FSDT airports, and with a couple of default FSX airports. The Demo can be unlocked by purchasing the product, directly inside Flight Simulator. Refer to the fsdt_install_guide.pdf document found under the fsdreamteam folder under the FS folder after the installation for more details.
Vx vs. Vy Let’s imagine for a moment the following hypothetical situation: Two airplanes are taking off at exactly the same moment from parallel runways. Airplane A accelerates to and climbs out at Vx while Airplane B accelerates to and climbs at Vy. What will happen in each case? Of course, we already know that Vx is the speed for best angle of climb while Vy is the speed for best rate of climb. (If you sometimes have a hard time remembering which is which, think of an X as having lots of angles.) The rule of thumb for which speed to fly is easy: We use Vx immediately after takeoff to clear obstacles, followed by Vy to reach our cruising altitude quickly. 727 Series 200Adv in this package you will get the 727-200Advanced, which is 20 feet longer then the 100, and holds the most passengers. The 727 entered service in the early days of airline service during the 1960s, in a time before advanced flight computers, and many other systems seen in airliners today. With 1832 build between 1963 and 1984, the 727 held the record for most built for a long time before the 737 surpassed it. The 727 was a common sight at airports for more then 30 years and now you can experience what it was like to fly in the beginnings of the jet age, and the hay-day of air travel. Features:

He built eight-thousand exquisite automobiles, but he built only one aeroplane. The Bugatti 100P - designed by Belgian engineer Louis de Monge - was an art-deco classic and the most technologically-advanced airplane of its time.
Calculating Density Altitude with a Pencil We all know that as density altitude increases, there is a corresponding decrease in the power delivered by our airplane’s engine and the effectiveness of our propeller. For a typical non-turbocharged light single-engine airplane, this can result in a takeoff roll that’s 25 percent longer for every 1,000 feet of elevation above sea level. The most dangerous combination of conditions are a heavy load, unfavorable wind, high temperature, high airport elevation and high humidity. With so many variables to consider, how are we supposed to know when our density altitude is too great for the conditions? The answer is, we need to calculate our density altitude, which we can then compare against the performance information in our aircraft manual.
X-Plane 10 HD Mesh Scenery v2 The “X-Plane 10 HD Scenery Mesh v2″ scenery is completely free to download and free to use. I call it Donationware because if you like the scenery, you are invited to donate for it: A “Known issues” section has been added (and what and how will / can be fixed). I have added a new subtopic on this page describing the difference between HD Mesh Scenery v2 and SimHeaven.com photoscenery, because obviously still a lot of users are confused! Please read it if you don’t know what this is all about! I ask you to NOT REDISTRIBUTE / MODIFY / OR CHANGE (for 3rd party purposes) it without asking for permission (usually I allow almost everything, but I like to know about it!)
