Could you please let me know what time this starts UK time please? Thanks!

Hello @JohnBrace,

This starts at 1900 (7pm) Z, or Zulu, time. In international aviation, Zulu time is the abbreviation for Coordinated Universal Time, also known as UTC. The UK is one hour ahead of UTC, so this stream will begin at 8pm local time for you.

Thanks for your interest, and we hope you find the lesson valuable for your simulated flying!


Thanks very much and I’ve already found the channel on twitch and enjoying watching some of the previous lessons.

Glad you’re enjoying the lessons. We have an archive (with videos) of all the previous lessons where @Jummivana was learning in a Cessna 152 in this thread:

Love the lessons, but why are they limited to 720p and so blurry? Doesn’t look good specially on large 4K screens. Can we please have a higher quality stream? Thanks!

Hi Jayne and Forder,

I enjoyed watching live, even when it meant getting up before 5 AM here in the West Coast of Australia. I really enjoyed interacting with the rest of the attendees.

Thank you for your time and effect.



Hi @TheIceCoId,

We normally broadcast our community streams in 1080p. Today’s stream was being cast from @Forder1702’s computer. He may not have the bandwidth to stream in 1080p. We’ll see if it’s possible to increase the resolution to 1080p for future lessons.

Have you considered moving all your lessons on Youtube, maybe creating a new channel?

Where are the rest of the lessons… #3??

Seems that 172 lessons have moved to Twich!

What´s up in here?
When will we heve the next 172 session?
There´s still so much to learn, we just can´t stop just like that.

A little info update about the future of this great series would be very nice to get.


Not sure why it hasn’t been posted but Lesson 3 is on Twitch and has been for several days.
