Cessna 150 Night Landing Norfolk (KORF) Virginia Airport

October 12, 2008

This is a video of me landing at night in a Cessna 150. Sorry about the night shot, it was the only way to see everything. This flight was for my long cross country for my commercial pilot training. I flew from Salisbury, MD (KSBY) to Wilmington, NC (KILM), to Norfolk, VA (KORF) and returned to Salisbury.

Notice the horrible nose-wheel shimmy haha. The plane is old.

Duration : 0:2:21

    Yes, I am pretty sure I did. I’m not that incompetent. I just went a little slow because I was unfamiliar with the airport and was looking for the taxiway.

    no, they are literally built into the ground, with an incredibly hard cover over them. they don’t have lines of little lamp light bulbs along a runway 😛

    … At the airport …
    … At the airport I learn to fly at, which is a medium sized international airport 2 light aircraft have gone down in the sea for the same reason, not enough fuel and on arrival horrendous weather, the pilots could not perform an ILS approach and when being vectored in to land they lost communication over the sea and went down. ILS approaches will be different in real life, but just being able to do them in flight simulator will mean you are able to do one in an emergency in real life.

    I’m the same, I …
    I’m the same, I used to use flight simulator religiously, when I started to learn to fly I learnt how to control the aeroplane because that aspect is completley different, but all the radios, and instrument flying is so much easier after using flight simulator. I think a lot more pilots should use it from time to time, to practice emergencys etc, because it is invaluable for emergency training…. lol

    I grew up flying with my dad and was going for my license at 14, but that was kayoed when my mom was hurt. Once on my own I nevfer had the cash; The cash thing got worse when I got married (LOL!), but the worst was I started having seizures at 21 and they developed into rheumatoid arthritis. I won’t pass a physical, but occasionally I fly with friends and fly commercially. The passion never dies. 🙂 And congrats on your ratings!

    Hey thanks! Have you ever tried to go airborne??? Flight sim definitely help withs transitioning to the real thing. I played Flight Sim 98, 2000, 2002 while in high school. I still buy them.

    This video is pretty old. I now have my CFI, CFII, and multi-engine rating.

Got something to say?
