Flying the sims is cool because they have video screens out of the wind screen. They are also pretty accurate in simulating the controls of the T-1. One of the downfalls at Whiting was that the sims sucked at replicating actual flight in the T-34, this sim is much better. This is depressing for me though, the T-1 is so slow to react and is like driving a bus or something. It is kind of frustrating for me because although the yoke is all mechanical to the control surfaces, there is not much feed back on the control pressure. Basically, what I mean is that when I turn the yoke left or right, I don't feel anything pushing back, because the T-1 does not have ailerons. Anyway, if that is confusing, is just means the aircraft has slow reaction time. Not fun. But it does have a lot of very cool gee-wiz instruments. Those are nice.
Until next time, pray for SURF.
