Dashing the Horizon from Portland to Santa Rosa


Recommended Posts

… on an early morning flight. which i had undertaken a few weeks back (from the private FSX-archive so to speak).


Everyone, please enjoy!


Cheers, Christoph


 


Parked at KPDX, awaiting our passengers

… one slightly „enlightened“ and post-edited shot here below, trying to capture the sunlight of early spring at one of these days where the weather does not yet know if it should make way for the sun - or let the rain pour down instead

… soon getting through the clouds anyways

… closer to California now already – and the weather getting better and better

… and into the approach towards RW 32 of KSTS

… flying a hold as depicted by the chart for the ILS approach of KSTS’s RW 32 (not using any ATC this time). Really loving the many autogen houses here by the way! Nice!

That isn´t a Dash, that is a Beaver, can´t you read?!


 


Always difficult to let this bird understand the VNAV path for descending, it looks like you did it manually? And a nice preparation for the go-around. Therefore... special thanks for the cockpit shots!

Hi Stu!


The Dash may be a bit of a challange to land indeed, but to summarize some of the little knowledge i gained about handling this bird properly, the deal is to touch down almost without flaring - it's really a bit like literally sinking it into the ground.


I think that the "speedcards" which are being deliverd by Majestic (and if i recall correctly they can also be found at their support-website) are a great reference for setting up Vref properly and then, well, then - making a longer story short - just put it down on the tarmac so to speak ;) !


Cheers, Christoph

Hi Gerold!


VNAV "guides" You to a certain altitude at one specific point (let's say an altitude constraint at a specific navpoint) and after that it may be a better choice to change into V/S and then "tune it all" just as required to handle Your way from one point and altitude to another while on approach.


I can just very highly recommend to read trough this superb and really informative thread here at AVSIM (especially Post #1, #15) regarding setting up proper descents in the Dash:


http://forum.avsim.net/topic/405850-quick-little-tutorial-for-those-in-trouble-with-vnav-descents/?p=2651520


 


And the landing in the end was indeed done manually and worked without any issues - which certainly was not the case when i first got myself acquainted with this great bird quite some time back by now ;):lol:


Cheers, Christoph


 


P.S.: Mentioning this just in case, but the "airlne2sim" trainingvideos for the Dash seem to be very promising and informative ... i hope to get my hands on them rather sooner than later now - just have to wait until my CC is recharged again ... :unsure:


P.P.S.: The great livery in use here above is available via OZx, where it is kindly provided by "robnewman76"
