Guys:

There are few things on this Earth that approach the pure, delicious, succulent joy of flying in near zero visibility only to come out of it right over the darned runway as the ILS guides you down to a perfect, high scoring, landing.

Be patient...

Ok S/L you've convinced me.

Hi S/L, Biggles here,

Regarding your ILS thingamee bob S/L  - I have come across a problem.

Apparently one needs to get oneself an Instrument Rating or some such poppycock. Never needed one when I first started out - you simply dropped down to a hundred foot or so, looked for a railway line, followed it to a station where the station master had thoughtfully painted the name of the station on the roof. Of course there were a lot more railway lines in those days.

Yes - I think VOR navigation in FS is a natural pursuit of the noble mind.

Zero viz - buffeted about by winds - thunderstorm brewing - you're 100 miles from your destination and you have... no GPS...

... just a couple of NAV radios, a map, and a dawg called Boomer, who's cheerfully sniffing away at the dual controls.

You tune the next VOR, listen for the Morse ID, and you're on your way.

Now that's what I call navigation...

Man, this sounds like a challenge?  Are you all calling me a wimpy pilot having all available tools to fly?  Humm, perhaps the S&S tour will be flown the old fashioned way by JoeMini?

By jove S/L you've stimulated my juices old boy. Bring on the old VOR in fsfs, what. That will seperate the boys from whatever

I quite agree Bruce

Vor to Vor navigation sure is the way to go. The next step so to speak the old fashion way with no gps , what a blast.

Bring it on.#

And if anyone else can think of anything else to stop ole winning again am all for it.

This is all very interesting - let's see what we here at the Sinister Lab  can do to get VOR navigation firmly into FSFS.

Hmmm... airmanship challenges, scoring extra points... sounds like fun!
