A C27J? What happened to the lottery "rules"; an airplane you can fly yourself, (no two pilot requirement) and pull out of a hangar yourself? After all, aren't there limits to fantasies, no?

I play by the "combat lottery rules".

No that there's anything wrong with that, but I prefer the type in your original photo...

I'm sure if somebody offered me a right seat on a C27J I would take it.

In essence the lottery is some sort of freedom ticket and not just a endless cash stream. Want to go flying? Call up that rated C27J pilot? I guess that's not impossible though. If you can afford such a plane you can sneak that Bonanza under the wing of the C27J in the hangar. I wonder who John Travolta calls when he needs a first officer and a flight engineer for his Boeing 707.

*sigh*...fine...I suppose I could settle for a Piaggio Avanti..if I had to.

Yes.

Flew the 737 with no passenger load and 25% fuel. What a difference! I actually landed it at 120 knots. Had to force the nose down and dive for the runway during approach.

That MS sim model sounds off. Its MS, so why am I surprised? If you're flying flaps 40 and 120 knots at, roughly 86,000 lbs (basic empty weight 77,500 + 25% fuel 8700 lbs) you should be about right on the Vref landing speed. Max landing wt vref is 139, and with what you have is about 35,000 lbs less than max landing. And you're having to force the nose down? What EPR are you using? Or, is this at idle/zero thrust and you're forcing the nose down? If so that model is useless. Idle thrust in that plane, with full flaps will soon send you down like the proverbial brick, 4000 fpm descent or more. In a normal stabilized approach the nose should be about 3-5 degrees higher than the horizon on the attitude indicator and descending about 700-750 fpm.

I just probably had the nose trimmed too high. I had the throttle shut all the way. They say that the physics behind microsoft flight simulator is pretty good. What's EPR?

Earlier in the approach, I had to add a little power. Then I overshot the end of the runway a little and landed a little further down.

Me flying my dream airplane, Damian's Piper Supercub on tundra tires.



I'd have a set of floats in the hangar for when they're needed. This plane would take me pretty much every place I want to go. It's not fast, it's not that comfy and it doesn't carry much but it would carry me, my sweetheart and enough stuff to have fun to places where there's no-one else around in the backcountry.

It is my dream, and I'm working my way towards it. Been 6 years since I flew it and I doubt a day goes past that I don't remember the view coming down between the trees and landing it on 300' of grass with plenty to spare. I thought my jaw was going to crack I was laughing so hard when we stopped.

Damn but I need to be earning more money :)
