Post subject: Re: The Beech is out!!!

As next Sunday flights will require us to climb up a bit, I wanted to test the Beech to see if it fits our needs. Consider we'll have to reach altitudes in the order of 12000-16000 feet (and if you go out of route, maybe even higher!)

So I took off from an airfield with an elevation of 5500 feet, and started going up. At increasing altitude, I had to decrease the rate of climb, not to lose too much speed, but anyway I could keep some 105-110 KIAS while still climbing fast up to 18000. Then performances started to get worse, but I managed anyway to reach 20000 feet, and once levelled I could get a maximum speed of 128 KIAS - engines running at 2000 rpm, well, look at the pic:



Please note that I was heading 360°, and there were strong winds from the west, so that didn't help. I didn't dare to climb more than that, after all I don't think we'll need it.

I suggest you to take confidence with the autopilot: it doesn't work the way we're used to - clear explanations are included into the panel tutorial html document.

What a fantastic plane to fly - absolutley no excuse to use the autopilot - it's going to be fun flying this little 'un on Sunday's! Laughing It was so sweet, that I almost rushed out to buy a set of foot pedals specially, I felt as if I wanted to REALLY try out my pilot skills more than any other plane so far!!!

Thanks for the great plane Milton & Co.!

p.s. Fled - took her down from Lelystadt to Deelen - perfect with the old Netherlands historic flight colours Wink

Will there be an easy install for all the paint jobs? If not where are they located?

Post subject: Re: The Beech is out!!!

I guess Fled will have a hard time assembling a comprehensive EZ package; indeed, there might be several, 'cause at this rate I can't imagine how many liveries will be released - now I have 16, and one of the zips includes 4 paintjobs!

Most of them are available at AvSim, but you better have a look also at FlightSim and Simviation. I avoided the usual job of addressing you to them one by one because there are so many that collecting all of them would be a crazy job. Here is where Fled's work comes precious! Cool

Sweet paint jobs. There were a few that I really liked. I have a couple, but they aren't installed yet. I was up late getting them. I look forward to the easy install.
