WUS Airport Scenery Collection

Posted this on Discord and am x-posting it here. I've been developing scenery for Western US strips that so far have either no 3D scenery in XP or unrealistic scenery in XP. All have been designed over the top of sat images, so layouts are accurate. They all look great over ortho scenery as a result...

Re: I3 Failure

Hi. I took it the very next day and passed with flying colors, again in IMC and again /A. Practice makes perfect. Glad you have it under you're belt, too. Enjoy the I4!

Re: CAT6 and MOAs

Not yet. So far my airport list is limited to KOQN, KMQS, and KILG. Cross countries are next for me. How did you guys managed not to get shot down for accidentally straying into Camp David airspace?

Re: CAT6 and MOAs

That's interesting, Rod. Not a lot of MOAs out here near Philly where I fly, but I seem to remember more than one post online from military guys saying that VFR traffic into hot MOA's is a major pain on their side of the equation - needing to call off an active exercise, re-stage it, etc. over conce...

I3 Failure

Failed the I-3 today, after a perfect record of V and C ratings to date. Controller did her best to be patient with me, and my flying it with no GPS / moving map and in IFC was probably a bit much to start given that my IFR skills are rusty. But she said "Santa Monica 125 radial" and I was...

Re: Today Was The Day

My CFI had his medical issue literally just before the lesson where I was to solo, so fortunately the new guy (who is very good) gave me the equivalent of a check ride, followed by pattern work, and then we soloed.
