  1. Alaska is a great place to fly and taking off from Anchorage is part of it, I don't have FSEconomy but it seems they choose a great place to add to their what I assume is part of their testing. But we all know what assume means... Thanks for the look
  2. Fine landing Wilson, thanks for the look. I would also like to welcome you here to the forums.
  3. Ok, I kept downloading from the store until the app showed installed and in my start menu, once there and opened the press any key download all the rest of the program. You are certainly in a unique situation and I guess because of the size of the download problems can arise. I'll keep looking for your particular issue.
  4. Thanks John, I just figured since a pilot requested flight following and they were following you using your transponder they might get worried if you all of a sudden made a deviation from your path and dipped down lower in a different direction. I know you can cancel flight following at any time and don't even need to give a reason but was really asking if you could stay in flight following while changing from your original voiced intentions of flight and how that controller conversation would go. Sometimes I like to make the calls in my head and try to figure out proper dialog. I d
  5. If you have filed a flight plan and after taking off request flight following are you allowed to then leave the confines of the plan along the way and do some sight seeing or would you tell ATC to cancel flight following for a scenic fly about? How would that call sound? Are VFR reporting points, those maroon flags on aviation maps, used by controllers so they can concentrate on passenger aircraft and only deal with you when you fly over the requested point and call it in? Are those repointing points used by large and small controlled airports or mostly by one type? I ask this because the
  6. Here you go Arnie straight from Microsoft, https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016930319
  7. Found this when trying to figure out custom camera views and thought I'd share, https://flightsimulator.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360016003159-Camera-Overview
  8. Beautiful shot, and to think we though ORBIX was all that.
  9. Is that when they give you knock out drops and steal your wallet.... Not sure what 'Hoed' means or in context to the word 'Owed' so I'll go with... Till that soil
  10. Also another thing I noticed and not sure why it happened is when the press any key window came up the window, not sure how to say this, wasn't the main window open. I needed to click on the top header to bring it up to the top and then when I pressed a key and 30 or so seconds later things kicked in. It was strange because I was on my desktop and nothing else was open.
  11. Like butter, nicely flown and the lights of LA are the topping on the cake.
  12. Thanks Brian and sorry for cutting in on your thread Arnie.
  13. Thanks guys, finally got it downloaded by closing it out and retrying until I got a good download speed although it still took some time. Now I'm trying to figure out everything else. I did get my outdated joystick working but there are a lot of settings still to figure out using the poke and see method. I did take a short 15 minute flight in the C152 and need to figure out how to get the brakes to tighten up because I could have stopped it faster dragging my feet out the door.
  14. The light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing and stopped at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection. The tailgating woman behind him was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection. As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted
  15. Thanks Arnie but my main problem now is I still have not downloaded everything. I have gotten to the point where msfs20 is now on my PC but I still have 60GB to go on the update screen and this has been going on for days now. Originally I kept trying to redownload from the Store but at some point it said the game was running and I noticed it was in fact in my start menu, closed the game out and restarted and it wanted to update. Not sur how I got to that point as the loading bar was woefully light. Slowly chipping away from the original 75GB shown my download speed has been fluctuating a
  16. I'm trying to download mfs20 myself, after the screen that said 'hit any key' to get started it took a good 30sec or more before anything happened but I was finally on my way. Unfortunately it is a long road and it has been downloading now for almost seven hours now and is only at 30%. I am using a wireless connection which probably slows things down and watching the resource monitor it fluctuates between 2-32 Mbps. Either my provider is limiting me(44Mbps download check) or Microsoft is swamped, my guess is the former. Only 70 gigs to go.... After my FSX took a dump I haven't fl
  17. Sorry for your predicament Alan, I certainly hope you get everything back in one piece and all gets settled fairly. Also remember that within the law one must hit first so get with your lawyer soonest.
