Rich - I hear ya - have an old version - 2000 I think - EFIS equipped Boeing 737 - my 14 year old daughter can land it blindfolded with her feet while dancing to Lady Gaga - zoo animals can launch and land 737s......rats.....forgot to put the smiley face...:)

Brent - I think the drawings had a modification from the original design, but not sure - anybody? - In my case, the lack of a spacer between the bottom of the angle and the skin was its demise - it cracked both sides at the edge of the bottom longerons and along the bottom bend at the bulkhead - both due to the lack of a spacer.

Yep...these young airline pilots nowadays have it easy ! 50ft AGL autopilot on. Autoland at LAX. Next stop the essential buss to the Holiday Inn. The 2000 version will work. It will get you use to looking at the PFD without the real HOBBS meter running.

Yeah - good idea - I'll work on that - having said that, I fly T-18s loudly in my sleep most nights.....wife says we flew to Fiji last week and landed on the beach - apparently I furballed with Colonel Highley at least 7 times last month. We're getting separate rooms........
