Cessna 172N Circuit Training

October 23, 2009

Carenado Cessna 172N Skyhawk II (payware)

Sounds: Default

Scenery: Flight Zone 01 Rhode Island (payware)

Environment: Active Sky 6.5, Real Environment Pro

Traffic: None

Airport code and time: KSFZ. You guys guess the time! 😛 It’s in the video somewhere.

I must say this is one helluva nice aircraft. It’s definitely worth the money and you get what you pay for. You buy a Cessna, you get a Cessna. Everything’s good about this aircraft: the sounds, the flight model, the flying dynamics, etc.

I would recommend it to anyone looking for some GA VFR fun.

Duration : 0:2:53

    but remember to be …
    but remember to be at 65 KIAS before adding the last noch of flaps
    use pitch to mantain 65 throue final approach.
    if your to low add power
    to high reduce power
    to fast pitch up
    to slow pitch down

    the way we do it at …
    the way we do it at our airport in real life.
    takeoff fly runway heading
    at 700ft AGL- turn crosswind
    at 1000ft AGL- leveal off, power at 2200, turn downwind
    when abeam your touchdown point, power 1500 flaps 10, start descending
    at 45 degrees of touchdown turn base
    on base, flaps 20 pitch for 75KIAS
    on final pitch for 70, use pitch for airspeed and power for altitude
    when you have the feild made, but before 200AGL, flaps full
    at 10ft power out start the flare
    we use a 172SP thoue

    I take flying lessons and this is what I use: Crosswind at 500 ft. AGL, Downwind at 700 ft. AGL, Base at a 45 degree angle to the numbers of the runway you are landing at. Hope this helps!

    I’ve never flown …
    I’ve never flown before so I won’t talk you into false facts about when to turn and so forth. All I do is take the experience learned from the simulator lesson and put it into effect whenever I fly around an airport.

    I would say to turn on the crosswind leg about 30-45 seconds after take off. Then turn on the downwind leg when reaching pattern altitude. Turn on base when the end of the landing runway is at about 45 degrees behind your aircraft. Turn on final and intercept the glide slope.

    supposed to stay withing gliding distance of the strip, video didnt show your legs clearly at all but from the look of it it seemed you were a bit to far, half the wingstrut is around what the cessna can float to.

    Does this scenery come with KBDL? I would think not since its Rhode Island, but BDl is only one state over.

    Worth every penny. I enjoy every minute of flying it. However, there are 2 CDI’s as opposed to the common VOR indicator and CDI. This plane is NOT IFR certified, at least, not in the sim. Hope this helps! 🙂
