Dear friends and followers, welcome back to my channel!
Yes it’s finally here. My first ever youtube video with the new Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. I have to say I absolutely love this software. I tested it before it was released and it’s just such a fantastic tool to training your procedure, checklist and just to get a head start if you are planning on going to flight school and become a pilot.
I really don’t see it as a game rather as a great tool for aviators to improve their skills. I would even got as far as practicing approaches into airport we fly into on a regular basis.
Nevertheless, in today’s video I’ll be showing you the absolute basics of flying a little Cessna 152 around the island of St. Barth. St. Barth airport is know for it’s incredible step descent on final for runway 10.
So I challenge myself directly from the start and try and land this little plane onto this relatively short runway. But I wanted to do it as professional as possible by using all the necessary/applicable checklist. Starting up the engine, performing the runup etc. and Microsoft really delivers with this incredible simulation.
So please checkout my checklist which are downloadable for a small fee on my website, that you can apply the checklists like you would in flight school or as professional pilots do.
I hope you enjoyed this video, more of these will be coming soon!
Thank you very much for your time! I hope you enjoy this video!
Wishing you all the best!
Your "Captain" Joe
Big thank you to all other youtubers who provided me with the video material to create this video. Your content is highly appreciated. Please follow their channels:

    This looks like so much fun. I go back to the open cockpit days and we didn’t have this. My dad flew the mail in a Curtis Jenny. There were days when it was so warm (Density Altitude) he had to fly for several miles under the telephone wires before he burned up enough fuel to get altitude. My dad taught himself to fly. I however, had an instructor when I was 16. I’m glad you commercial pilots like to fly the little guys but you really have to fly a Taildragger in order to be a real pilot. I love watching your blog.

    Why is it preferable on aircraft engines to shut off by fuel starvation first whereas on cars we kill sparks first? Why do we ground planes to fuel truck before filling, but not ground cars to gas pumps before delivering fuel?

    If budget allows , try it on a beefy PC with a quality VR headset like Reverb G2. The graphics aren’t quite as good as 2D, but the immersion it offers is a great feeling. (Looking side-to-side freely, etc.)

  • Maarten van Roij

    Have you already played FS2020 in VR? It's absolutely mindblowing and the most immersive flight experience you can get at home. You can actually look everywhere you want without having to move your mouse. Very handy when flying traffic patterns in VFR. You also get a much better feel for height and distance than with using just a screen, making it a bit easier to fly. By the way, how do you rate FS2020 as a professional pilot? Is it as accurate as in real life or do you experience it more like a game? Simply said, if I can fly a plane (let's say a Cessna 172) without all assitance turned off in FS2020, would I be able to fly it in real life?

    Always a pleasure to have a pro confirm that it's no waste of time to stick to learning, manuals and procedures... like... when I was doing good with fighter jets, at first it was still impossible to land the cat on a moving carrier... reading, understanding and following NATOPS manuals got me down right onto the second wire... that's how it's made - thank you so much for insisting on it!

    I fly as cabin crew and I am used to p3d and fs2020. And it's amazing how most if pilots are so geeks just like me !!. And when we have enough time to discuss during cruise, in the flight deck, about flight simulator among other things it's always funny. I'm sure it would be with you too if you were a Swiss pilot.

    Absolutely amazing, finally a real and good video about what is to be a pilot of tiny Cessna 👏🏼 Pity that in Microsoft Flight sim no voice of ATC or pilot. I clearly remember in my school times some simulator I had played, there you had an ability to send a ready voice messages to ATC to have any clearance you needed to go through the field to runway, that was about 17-18 years ago...

    I fly a C172SP in aerosport club just on the opposite side of your huge red Cargolux hangar. And I fly the same ILS approach (and RNP when the ILS was under maintenance few months ago) with your 747 all the time :) When weather is good, I fly 100kt down the ILS until 2-3 nm before getting flaps out and slowing down. But when it's bad, I do slow down to 80kt to get a more stabilised approach in the cloud. No 747 pilot in the frequency ever complained anything, and ATC here in Luxembourg is doing an amazing job vectoring a huge variety of traffic 747, Dash-8, 737 and tons of small GA aircrafts around for approach with very little delay.

    Switching the transponder on but only to idle for it to warm up seems to be an old ritual from the valve days. For the "kids" that don't know, valves need depending on type of valves and how brutal they're being treated anywhere up to a minute to become operational. But yes, switch it on to idle anway - just to make sure the last joker using the plane didn't leave the transponder set to 7500. And if it's at least a semi-modern model with electronic display seeing the display lighting up gives at least a bit of an indication of servicability. Oh - and trust is futile. Technolog is out there to screw you. I've flown a C172SP where the transponder in mode C (altitude reporting) was reporting an altitude of 25,000ft. Imagine the face of the controller seeing a C172 at FL250 on his screen ;-) The particular aircraft had a placard saying something like "Alt reporting INOP, Mode A only." Which these days is important may be important to know when flying in TMA (Transponder Mandatory Area). which might require mode C or S.

    Wouldn't it have more sense to check for oil pressure rising just after startup, rather than oil temperature? I don't know in a Cessna 152, but in a Rotax engine, it can take a couple minutes or more to see any visible variation in oil temperature, thus with oil pressure you must check you have enough in less than 10 secs, or stop the engine immediately
