Midnight Sun Fly In

During last weekend the Midnight Sun Flyin Event took place in Norway, Sweden and Finland

The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon that occurs in the summer months in places north of the Arctic Circle or south of the Antarctic Circle, when the Sun remains visible at the local midnight.

The term “midnight sun” refers to the consecutive 24-hour periods of sunlight experienced north of the Arctic Circle and south of the Antarctic Circle.

I flew from Tromso (Norway) to Kiruna (Sweden). The approach in Kiruna was on runway 03 an RNAV approach.

This video is 90% realtime, only the taxi and cruise are in timelapse.

Sadly the moving map stopped working short after taxi and I didn’t recognized it.

ProSim Display Configuration

During the years of using ProSim I always had running the Prosim Displays with 2 instances. One for the Captains PFD and ND and a second one for the First Officers PFD and ND.

After some chat with a ProSim Developer (Alex) who is responsible for the D2D integration and much more, he pointed out to me that it is better that each display is running its independent instance. Therefore the PFD will not slow down if the ND shows too much data and struggles.

So I took the time to reconfigure my setup, at least for the PFD and ND on both sides. Each display is now running a own ProSimDiplay.exe instance.

And indeed it feels smoother.

FMC Guide

Since a couple of years I owned the 737 Cockpit Companion from Bill Bulfer.

I searched for a second hand FMC Guide from Bill Bulfer also a couple of years. Now I found an good edition. It covers all menues and handling from the FMC. I already knew 70% (I would guess 😉 ) Now I can search for additional information and get a deeper knowledge of the areas.

 

Nordic Tour – Leg 17 – Copenhagen [EKCH] to Vienna [LOWW]

This is the final leg of our Nordic Tour. We flown it again in the Homecockpit.

You will notice some INOP stickers, there the Prosim Display app on the recording PC froze and I didn’t noticed. Sorry for that.

Here the link to the photo Album of all flights in this tour.
