Hi, you can call me: Enki
I am Flying Microsoft Flight Simulator on: Xbox Series S and Windows 10 PC
I want to try flight simulation because: I flew Flight Sim 95 en-route to obtaining my Private Pilots license and would like resume training.
I’m most interested in learning about Flight Planning in Microsoft Flight Simulator: O52 Sutter County Airport is my home base.
O52 is a uncontrolled airfield, Unicom 122.7. When I was a student pilot, I was instructed to contact “Sutter County Traffic 3 miles out for the active” If the wind was from the South the response was “Right Hand Traffic Runway 17” As I approached the pattern I would call out “Aircraft Tail number entering Downwind Midfield at a 45 degree angle for Right-hand Traffic Runway 17” Never Lefthand Traffic Runway 17. This is so we didn’t interfere with traffic out of the Yuba County Airport. I would really like to practice this arrival procedure on the simulator. This may be a big ask but it would make FS 2020 XBox -S a bit more useful.
