Re: joining up

Found your application buried deep in a spam/undeliverable mailbox. The website email system is notoriously unreliable. Will respond directly.

Is there a way to get QNH for fields in DCS that do not have an ATIS frequency?

Re: 02 October, 2022 - Training: Anti-Ship/Case III/ Instrument Approach

Also, for some of us who don't have PPLs or real world ground school at some point, something important to understand (though my description will be somewhat simplified). In many cases, I think DCS Hornet pilots just select RDR ALT on deck before take-off and just leave it that way, which is typical...

Re: 02 October, 2022 - Training: Anti-Ship/Case III/ Instrument Approach

FWIW the Weather on mission day will not be as bad as it was in the video. That's good, I suppose. I've been in the Caucuses range with Trim's real world weather enabled and absolute crap visibility, resulting in several go-arounds trying to land at KBL because I couldn't see the runway until I was...

Re: 02 October, 2022 - Training: Anti-Ship/Case III/ Instrument Approach

Sometimes you just gotta do some of that pilot shit. When you can't see the shit (e.g., in heavy fog), it's a lot more difficult to do that pilot shit. When I'm trusting my instruments in IFR conditions, and don't see the runway until I'm over the threshold, and discover that I'm 10 degrees off the...

Re: 02 October, 2022 - Training: Anti-Ship/Case III/ Instrument Approach

Working with Harpoons at the range last night, reminding myself of a few important points when using that weapon system; a) The SEA mode radar is magic. It only shows ships, no matter where they are, even in port. It magically filters out buildings and land masses. So just because the radar image lo...

Re: 02 October, 2022 - Training: Anti-Ship/Case III/ Instrument Approach

Don't have access to the Marianas Kneeboard pages currently, but the Jeppesen plate(s) are probably for Localizer or ILS approaches. So the final approach course for the ILS/LOC is probably 064* rather than 060* The AD page likely shows 067* as the actual magnetic heading of the runway itself, whic...
