Re: VATSIM voice

the audio is excellent.
So it's very unrealistic.
Maybe not for an airliner flying IFR on Vatsim.

For a rental with ragged out radios at a low altitude...
Whaaaaat?

Re: MSFS is back

Gabriel did his deal of always double posting stuff at both fora and 3BS missed it as a quality discussion broke out here
Fixed

Re: 2 former pilots...

The pilots should be fired NOT for simultaneous filming, BUT for deciding to SHARE the video. THAT is an exabit of dangerous decision making. Beautiful clear night, ILS probably tuned in- autopilot likely on, full situational awareness of air traffic via the radio, DDGAIMs engaged, and too far out ...

Re: MSFS is back

I agree, but I'd say that number has to be a minimum, not an average. Playing with it averaging 10 FPS but dropping to 1 or 2 when there are a lot of clouds is not fun.
Yep, agree, minimum FPS.

Re: 737 Max troubles;:The latest news...

Very similar to that is the belief that "new and different" always equals "better". I work in the IT field where that attitude is pervasive, especially on the programming side of things. There's a new tech out every 15 minutes and if you don't know and use it you're worthless. I've actually seen em...

Re: Effect of speed and altitude? on stall AoA

I can't tell you much about molecules. ALL of aerodynamics and fluid mechanics, including the proverbial Navier Stokes equations assume that the fluid is a continuum, not made up of little pieces. Which of course is not true, but boy how well it works!!! Subsonic, supersonic, hypersonic in the high ...

Re: Effect of speed and altitude? on stall AoA

Trying to understand if it's the speed or the thinness of the air that causes the flow over the wing to be disrupted. I am assuming that "causes the flow over the wing to be disrupted" you mean "causes the stall to happen at a lower AoA". So is it the speed or the thinness of the air? Neither. It i...

Re: Effect of speed and altitude? on stall AoA

is it TAS that affects the AoA or the thin air, or both? I don't understand the question, but perhaps this helps? The slope of the curve CL vs AoA steepens with higher Mach numbers, meaning that, other things being the same, you have more lift at higher Mach numbers. Or, conversely, since normally ...
