Yes, compression stockings help to keep the blood vessels open. You can also take a small 75mg aspirin to help thin the blood the day before and a couple of hours before you fly. Also get up and walk every hour or so.

Do pilot's licenses expire?


The license or "certificate" does not expire, however you must have a flight review every 24 calendar months with an instructor in order to continue to fly. The flight review consists of at least 1 hour of ground school and 1 hour of dual flight with the instructor to ensure you haven't developed any bad habits.

  • Straight and Level Cruise:
Start by setting the RPM to a cruise setting of 2200 RPM, using the throttle. This should give us a cruise speed of about 108 Knots.
Use the yoke to maintain level flight by keeping the small aircraft symbol level and exactly on the "Artificial Horizon" line of the six pack . Keep scanning the rest of the six pack to help maintain level flight. Scanning the six pack will show if you are going straight or turning, climbing or descending or if the airspeed or altitude starts to change. Always use small corrections to the aircraft's attitudes and wait to see the response.

  • Climbing Phase:
We will climb by increasing the throttle to full throttle. Now you can pull back on the yoke to raise the aircraft nose to about ten degrees above the horizon. Now set your climb speed (using the yoke), by changing this 10 degree climb, until you have an airspeed of about 80 knots. meanwhile continuing to scan the six pack at all times and make sure that nothing is changing that you don't want to change. Scanning the six pack will show if you are going straight or turning. or if the airspeed starts to change.
This Aircraft will stall (in a turn) at approximately 53 knots (no flaps) so keep your turns shallow and avoid any speed below 75 knots to allow yourself a margin of safety. Always use small corrections to the aircraft's attitudes and stay well out of any limit zones that are indicated on the instruments.

  • Descent Phase:
A descent to a lower altitude is done by reducing the throttle to an engine speed of about 1500 RPM while setting the air/fuel mixture at full rich (red knob fully inward). If you intend to be descending a long time at low engine power, then you should use carburetor heat to prevent icing. At reduced RPM, the engine will not be producing as much heat so we may have to put on the carburetor heat, or you can occasionally increase the engine speed for a minute to gain some heat and clear the engine.

First we'll cover panel instruments and how they're used.

Familiarize yourself with the six pack.The six instruments in the center of the instrument panel used mostly for IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) and are always in the following order:

  • Top left: The "Airspeed Indicator" shows aircraft airspeed, in knots. (nautical miles) per hour. It also displays the airspeed limitations in white, green, yellow, and red arcs.

  • Top center: The "Artificial Horizon" Has a small aircraft symbol that depicts the aircraft required attitude,for level flight, and shows whether the aircraft is climbing or descending, as well as the angle of bank.

  • Top right: The "Altimeter" a three hand clock type instrument that shows altitude of the aircraft in feet MSL, (feet above mean sea level).

  • Lower left: The "Turn and Bank Indicator" is a dual instrument which tells your angle of bank and whether you are in a coordinated turn. Sometimes called the "Needle Ball". For straight and level flight, keep the wings level and the ball centered.

  • Lower center:The "Heading Indicator". A stable gyro instrument that shows the aircraft's current compass heading. Use the Control Wheel to keep the aircraft on the desired heading.

  • Lower right: The "Vertical Speed Indicator" which tells how fast you are losing or gaining altitude, in feet per minute. Keep this instrument at zero to maintain level flight.

Should I move around the plane during the flight?


You should stand up and sit down every hour or two and sometimes get up and walk around the plane in order to stream your blood around your body and avoid blood clots.

Skysim dc-9 instalation goes well, then fsx crashes


Installation should be performed whilst FSX is not running. Then when you start FSX after installation, it will ask if you wish to add this aircraft, say yes, then off you go. It will then appear in your aircraft selection window.
