  • Herky Bird (or equivalent) Flight: Autumn Adventures (Friday 9pm Eastern)

    Well I stumbled into it this time! Instead of our venerable old C-47 Gooney Bird, we will fly like Lazer! This means a C-130 for those that have one in their hanger, or some thing else from the list provided in this post. If you do not have ANYTHING to fly, try the default Learjet.

    I will be using my old reliable An-32, and we will be flying in Italy AGAIN. What can I say, I am running out of places to fly that appeal to me.

    AIRCRAFT: C-130 (Capsim Version strongly recommended)) or Equivalent!

    ---------------- Taken DIRECTLY from Lazer's Herky Bird group flights -------------------

    ... the preferred aircraft is the timeless Captain sim C130 Hercules, but feel free to use any cargo prop that can maintain 250 KIAS at around 10,000 ft. Please do Not bring a jetliner to this event because they stick out like a sore thumb and are a distraction.

    Not sure what to fly?

    For those who don't have or don't want to fly the C-130, this should help you decide.
    • An-12 Most similar to C-130. Most extras (airbrake, autothrottle, paradrop). Russian annotations. Most difficult to fly.
    • An-32 Most frame-rate friendly. Best cockpit model. Easy to fly except long spool time. Needs refueling on long flights.
    • Howard 500 Easy for piston engine pilots. Best climber. Tail-dragger. Performance tails off at altitude. Poorest frame rates.
    • C-119 Boxcar Easiest to fly.
      • Re-engined (French) variant: Faster. Normal climb rates.
      • Normal engine variants: Slower. Half the climb rate so gets left behind on short-medium length flights.
