It was such a pretty night, I decided to do another leg. These short flights do give me a lot opportunities to practice my landing.

I was a very naughty pilot today, landing right in front of an airliner after disregarding ATC's instructions to go around. I even got scolded for it!

KIAD 🛬 KBWI

This sounds more like a FF14 expansion than a mainline game. :P

Tonight's flight from Richmond to Washington-Dulles went very well! I was very intentional about controlling my rate of climb and descent and was pretty happy to see the plane behaving like all the tutorials say it should.

Trying out the glass cockpit this time around and liking it.

This is cool: I found out how to mirror the display of my glass cockpit to their own windows, so now I've got my G1000 set up where it's really easy to read.

I am way too excited over this little alarm clock i got.

I honestly can't decide if I prefer the analog 172 or the one with the G1000 glass cockpit.

Made it to Richmond today. I had to use the autopilot since I couldn't see or keep myself level through the clouds. I need to be more diligent with my post-takeoff checklist since I spent about half the flight with 10% flaps extended.

Starting a cross-country trip from Raleigh to New York, probably doing 30-minute legs at a time. Here we are on leg one, getting close to the Virginia border.

Finally taking some screenshots! Flew over Shanghai to visit the Oriental Pearl Tower and check off some achievements.

My little chihuahua figured out the treat puzzle in about four minutes!
