Ze German passed his V-01

Postby Matthias Geiss » Sat Dec 19, 2015 3:33 pm

I finally decided to man up and do my first flight in PE. And while I was at it, I thought I might as well take the V-01.

But in fact it was kind of a triple-premiere:
1. First flight on PE
2. First flight on any online network
3. First rating on PE

Given 1-3, I was pretty nervous, and although the V-01 does look pretty simple when you read about it or watch others do it, It's not that simple when you're an online-flying virgin. :)
But obviously I did sufficiently well to pass and it was a great experience! I think I don't need to illustrate how much more immersive and pun it is to fly online with real ATC and fellow pilots! I had a blast and I'm so lookin forward to my next flights on the network.

This also starts my video series "Ze German on Pilotedge", and if you feel the need to watch some PE footage with German commentary (wo wouldn't? :D ), feel free to have a look:

Where did you get the KSNA scenery? It looks so much better than the one I downloaded from the .org

Also, congrats! Welcome to PE!

I dicided to do the V-02 while the memory of the V-01 is still fresh. But of course some stupid mistakes happened nonetheless. :roll:
E.g. changing the assigned heading before being cleared to resume own navigation... That's something I know is plain wrong, but in the excitement it happened anyways. :|

Now it's time for some practicing before taking the infamous V-03. :) I never thought it would be that hard to fly and communicate with ATC at the same time. But that's just something we all have to go through, I guess.
