On your return trip from the Canterbury Aero Club on Saturday, stop in at the Riccarton Racecourse with your Kamo, you may meet a few FS drivers cool.gif


Riccarton racecourse, is too long of a landing strip for me. Maybe riccarton mall parking would be more suitable.

Funny , I run the track long ways back twice .. run there and run home .. so next time you are driving in your Helicopter , stop in around Church Corner and pick me up.

Hi All,

Introduced to the forum by Deeknow. I've been simming since 2001, live in Auckland, done about 70 hours real time flying.

I enjoy everything from a low and slow GA flight through to heavies.

Good to be here, see you in the skies!

Actually did my training out of Dunedin Airport back in the early 2000's. Had a couple of flights out of Ardmore but don't do much real flying anymore at all.

One thing I did quiet a bit was simply hire a plane but after they closed Wigram down seemed to get less and less ... after all, saved the moneys, all my glider time was also Wigram only.

Nice! I've never flown a glider but it looks like fun.

Hi, names Harold and I have been a Gold Card holder for 3 years.
did 48 years in the RNZAF and still with Defence as a civilian.
Been simming for around five years and love it. My main frames are A2A127 (for my make believe PPL syllabus) and Carenado and F1 B200 for all my instrument training
(son was an RNZAF flying instructor and now is with ANZ so he is my training captain, mentor and does it for real)
I have purchased some hardware, all SAITEK yoke, one throttle quadrant, multi panel, com nav panel and rudders.
(Got the switch panel and another quadrant to go). They are brilliant when they work but I am still figuring out settings and things and the auto pilot is the most
challenging to get right.

they do add so much to the experience though. I subscribe to PC Pilot Magazine (got to be the best training manual) and missed the recent Flight Sim convention in the UK by a week !!
I need to spend more time on this forum, great to see this hobby is taking of in NZ. Congrats and thanks to all you who make this forum / web site happen well done and you do an excellent job.
Happy to take out a paid subscription if that is available.

sorry about the book !!

take care out there

Hi ya Harold, Just for your interest we still do MPs , it was a pain in the butt when 'Gamespy' was decided to be shutdown but we still do regular MP's via using my IP address normally, so with that , contact me personal message/addie , we can get you floating around in the background again in your default Beechcraft.

Thanks Ian, that is good to know? Son and I use a couple of servers in the UK (so we are in a daylight time zone together)
I am not yet retired and work a pretty full day , that plus domestics and other activities, not a lot of spare time however I am making an effort to enjoy this hobby and active environment
Kindest regards
Harold

Hi,

My name is Tapio, nice to meet you all. Originally from Finland, I have lived in Auckland for 6 years now.

I used to fly gliders a little some 10-15 years ago back home. I also used to toy around with military simulators/games such as Su-27, A-10 Cuba, Hornet - Korea and such around that time, with a bit more time spent with LOMAC and Il-2 Sturmovik later.

I haven't flown any simulators in a long time as I didn't have a desktop PC here in NZ. I finally got one last winter and recently acquired the wife's approval for an X-55 HOTAS set, which arrived through Amazon last week. A friend of mine got himself the X-55 at the same time, so we have been flying together a bit.

The intention is to primarily fly DCS World to start with, which I realise isn't the primary platform here, however I figured you might let me in anyway...perhaps I'll find a discounted SFX from Steam one of these days, who knows.

In the meantime I'll be learning the ropes of DCS with the Su-25T with my friend before graduating onto the full-fidelity A-10C and Ka-50 (both of which we already went and bought). If anyone happens to be running / joining a DCS server at NZ evening times let me know! It would be nice to fly with other kiwis.

Safe Landings,

Tapio
