Morning Folks,
 
Had a great flight this morning and thought I'd post a few shots.
 
KATL-KMDW CADIT5 RESPE IIU OKK FISSK1 Filed for FL340
DEP 1230z   ARR 1410z Gate A5
ZFW 119916 FOB 16687 TOW 136603
 
FS2004 AS6 GEPro FSBuild FlyTampa's great KMDW scenery
 
Note that I use some personal SOP's that all might not agree with but these are for my enjoyment:
1. No VNAV use except for recurrent training. I enjoy calculating my own TOD using the good old 3nm\1000ft rule I learned 20 years ago with FlightAssignment:ATP. Example: going from FL340 to 11000=23000 foot loss x3=69nm and I add 10-15nm for wind and speed adjustment. In this case I started down from 340 80 miles from FISSK (RNAV altitude required 11000) and leveled out 6nm from FISSK.
2. Once at cruise I switch to ALT HLD. Old habit because I feel better with HLD on in case of software\hardware glitches. Wink
3. I Autoland just often enough to keep current. I like to fly the plane.
 
On with the show:
 
Level FL340 crossing IIU:
 
120nm from OKK, 80 from TOD:
 
VC view:
 
On FISSK STAR approaching FISSK at 250/11000:
 
Out of 11000 for 7000 approaching OZZEY 50nm to go:
 
Level MDA 2800 LOC intercept hdg 285 for ILS31C KMDW
 
"Southwest 224 cleared visual RWY 31L" "Southwest cleared visual RWY 31R" "DL 1648 cleared ILS 31C"
 
Gotta love FS's ATC LOL
 
500 to go, on LOC, on GS:
 
100 to go, over the Midway fence:
 
 
 
100 to go, from the back left:
 
100 to go, from the front left:
 
Taxi to gate A5:
 
At A5, shutdown, total fuel used 9870 (avg. FL340 winds 290\107!). "Thanks for flying Delta."
 
2 best shots of the day, touchdowns, didn't save for some reason.
 
Hope you enjoyed this. Thanks iFly for a great aircraft!

Thanks, Steve. I have always loved the Boeings and you have nailed this so good I'm not flying anything else anymore.

Yeah I know the feeling my poor A300 sim must be feeling abandoned. My daughter gets married shortly after that I might see what I can rig up for the 737NG.
Cheers
