Flightsim Aviation Nigeria by jude33084(m): 2:02pm On Aug 05, 2019
Welcome,.. wink

My name is Jude,...an aviation enthusiast and a gamer. I want to use this medium to reach out to all aviation enthusiast and flightsim lovers out there, members of IVAO and VATSIM alike to please join us as we embark on this beautiful and exciting journey called the flight simulation world.

If you recall, I opened a thread years back on Microsoft flight simulation 10 also know as FSX, trying to create a platform under Nairaland where we can meet and share ideas on how to populate our virtual airspace using IVAO and VATSIM, as you may know the world is moving very fast these days, so fast that some of us move faster than our shadow grin

The airport sceneries we use are made designed by Harisu Mohammed (AKA RISUALI) for Xplane 11, a boy I call the wizkid; Raheem Adeleke who handles fsx/P3D and my humble self for Xplane 10 section.

I will be taking some of your questions as we progress and I hope other guru will join us on this platform too smiley

You can share pictures of your best flightsim sceries just to encourage others.


,.....we use the flightsim medium to encourage our young ones into the aviation industry.

Someone just sent me a message asking about the best flightsim that pilots can use during training?


Well, presently most of my pilots friends use Xplane 11 and P3d v4

in terms of flight physics dynamics they both have it.

I do recommend xplane 10 for my student pilot friends though due to that fact that Xplane 11 and P3D v4 system requirements are very high.

fsx,...well can run in most low end pc but you may not like what you see or get wink

Hello Guys, new to nairaland. Actually joined because of the growing aviation community. I’ll be glad to connect with fellow enthusiasts here.
Re: Flightsim Aviation Nigeria by Mowarin001: 2:33am On Apr 26, 2020
Hey guys, Glad to know other flight simulator enthusiasts in Nigeria, I play X-plane 11 flight simulator. More advanced than FSX and P3D in the market. And it costs around $55.
I recently started a YouTube channel just for in flight videos in X-plane 11. Link below.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwLu_2Fe1qL7gV0ibynwInw

Expect very good videos from that channel. Perfect for aviation experts like you.
Like and Subscribe to stay tuned if you enjoy the videos.

Once again great to meet other Nigerian flight simmers.

Hi bros,
I'm on vatsim and I have fsx steam edition but do I need something else to connect my vatsim account to the game to log my offline flights?
Attached are my fsx pictures

Re: Flightsim Aviation Nigeria by Mowarin001: 5:01pm On May 09, 2020
So sorry, I'm not on VATSIM and neither have I even played FSX.
I first started with X-Plane 10 mobile version until X-Plane 11 came out in 2016. But I never downloaded X-Plane 11 until September 2019 and quickly got the hang of it.

Some people like to use GTA 5 as a flight simulator, it might be realistic. But aircraft modelling and physics in GTA 5 is ugly. So it's not recommended.
I've never actually owned a play station tho so there might be other flight simulators I don't know of.

Hey people, greetings from my side.


Yesterday I did a flight in X-Plane 11 from Los Angeles International Airport (KLAX) to San Francisco International Airport (KSFO). I flew a Boeing 737-800 on this route.

Watch here at your will. You might just love it.

Hey. I want to get a hardware upgrade for my PC to be able to run X-Plane 11 at better frame rates.

The picture below shows my current PC specs.

Will I get better frame rate if I upgrade my RAM from 6GB to 16GB.

You seem to be well versed in the flight sim community,tell me you have seen the new Microsoft flight sim 2020 about to release with its OUTSTANDING graphics, accurate feedback from planes and more realistics gameplay. i used to just be a passive flight sim fan, watching videos on youtube and never actually playing, my forte is more sim racing. but with this coming up, well, i always wanted to be a pilot anyways. Didnt even know we had a community in naija.

Me too. It's so good to meet other aviation enthusiasts here on nairaland.

Yes I've seen the new MFS 2020. It's a really impressive simulator in development. At the moment, they're still working on licensing the liveries to be used on the aircraft in the sim.
X-Plane 11 is still my simulator for now and it is the foundation of my YouTube channel.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwLu_2Fe1qL7gV0ibynwInw

It was the best in the market until Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 came in.

I'll stick with X-Pane 11 for now. But I'll check out MFS 2020 when it's fully ready. I bet this one would beat X-Plane 11 in the market

@Mowarin001
Is there a way we can play multiplayer together, I got X-plane 11 based on your advise. I would like to fly long haul with you, Preferably from Dubal(OMDB) to San Francisco (KSFO) because I love taking off from DXB and Landing at SFO. And also based on your YouTube videos (yes, I subscribed, great content man) you are an expert, so which aircraft should I use for a flight from Adelaide to Lagos. I tried a 737-800 but I had to stop to refuel at Singapore-Changi and Dubai. With a 777-200LR, I refueled at Durban. I am about to use an A380-800, but Lagos does not have the facilities for docking an A380. (Note: I fly this same flight because I am a pilot for a virtual airline, Worldwide Virtual. If you want to join, please do I will gladly be your co-pilot.). I am currently en-route to Istanbul, Turkey cruising at FL330 from Lagos on a B787 with a stopover at Algiers and my next scheduled flight is from Istanbul to Adelaide on an A380 and then to Lagos. So I decided to asked you. Please reply me soon.

Thanks so much for the support for my channel. I really appreciate this, and I'll keep making good videos.
Unfortunately I still haven't found a way to connect X-Plane 11 to a multiplayer server unlike other mobile simulators like RFS or Infinite Flight.
There is some hope anyway. I'm just learning about VATSIM
https://www.vatsim.net
It's a platform that virtual pilots and other flight simmers on X-Plane, FSX and P3D can connect and fly together like in the real world. With some volunteers even acting as air traffic controllers. So I'm looking into that. But it'll take some time as running stuff like that isn't easy in Nigeria, where steady network is an issue, and it's very demanding on my limited data plans... LOL

So yeah, if you want to fly from Adelaide to Lagos, you'll first fly as a Qantas flight from from Adelaide to Johannesburg (South Africa). But Sydney is a better starting point though. Qantas used the Boeing 747-400 and A330-300 on that route. Then you'll simulate a connecting flight to Lagos most probably as Air Peace (With a Boeing 777-200LR) or South African Airways (With an A340). It's possible to do it in the simulator like it's done in real life.

You're also right. Muritala Mohammed Airport isn't equipped enough to handle an A380 the super jumbo. LOL. Nigeria is dire in need of an upgrade. LMAO!!!

As for flying from Dubai to San Francisco, I haven't actually flown that route since I got X-Plane 11. But I'll try it soon.

I just started enjoying cargo flights with UPS in X-Plane 11. I've now gotten used to their routes, procedures, departure times e.t.c. Mostly flying the Boeing 747-400 in the UPS livery. Right now I'm on a route from Hong Kong International Airport to Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport in Alaska as UPS flight 63.

I'm planning a special series for the YouTube channel very soon. To show the experience of an average UPS pilot using X-Plane 11. Especially in this COVID-19 pandemic where these cargo pilots are needed the most.
So stay tuned and all the best.���

It's no longer news to aviators world-wide that Virgin Atlantic has phased out it's remaining Boeing 747s.
Therefore I am planning a series of videos for my channel to bid this aircraft farewell.
I have specially chosen these routes which were always operated by their 747s and these will be my final flights with a Virgin Atlantic 747.

▶️VS75: Manchester (MAN) - Orlando (MCO)
▶️VS76: Orlando (MCO) - Manchester (MAN)

VS75 will be departing soon. So stay tuned to the channel and subscribe if it's your first visit so you won't miss out on any upcoming video.
