The New England Dragway is kind enough to host us for a flying site in the club Nick and I are members of. We fly in the parking areas on weekdays mostly.

Sorry, I'll be in a big box that pretends it is an airplane (usually on fire or broken) all this week. Leave early tomorrow. Won't really have any time until after my PC on the 12th.

Maybe I will hook up with Tyler or Patrick and try one of their beastXs just to see if that works.

My turn in the torture device is not too far off. Maybe this is why I hate RC sims.

No Ben, just a regular full motion sim. They get to torture me in a box to make sure that I can fly a CRJ900, even though I've been flying the CRJ200 for over a year and nearly 700hrs and they are 90% the same plane. It'd be fun if it wasn't something my career depended on.

Ok cool

I thought you guys were referring to the off shore helicopter crash training they do.

Showed helidirect this thread and they had me return the ikon. They are down the road so I might get it back by the end of the week.

No, Nick is tied up in training, and the only other units I have access to are beastX. Since the weather has turned at little less brutal I have been out flying my 3D airplanes. It looks like helidirect is just going to ship me a new one.
