SimulatorS

some simulator (not to be confused with stimulator, even though the stick looks like it may bring some joy, but its entirely for controlling the aircraft and not pleasure) pics:

the diamond-42 simulator cockpit. whenever i go there to take pics, it's always off. hence, a bit dull. anyways, i'm not doing sim on it. instead...



the seneca simulator which i'm doing. feels like a boeing 737 cockpit with the instrutors' pilot jackets hanging just behind the chairs.

for your information, these simulators shown do not move, instead the screen pictures move to provide visual reference. and no, still not done with single engine. lil more than 30hours to go...

a lil more information, multi engine aircrafts these days are designed so that even if there is an engine failure, the aircraft is controlable and capable of making a safe landing. so simulators are used to practise these emergencies since its unsafe to actually shut down an engine in flight in real life. simulators provide the closest to the real thing. and its not easy.

*******

the foreigner went to town for a meal. after his sumptuous meal, he called the waiter for the bill. you know how locally the waiter just comes and asks what you ordered then randomly spills out an outrageous figure for your meal? well the waiter asked him what he ate.

unsure of what its called coz he's not from around here, he said "nasi kangkang". if only i was there, i would have laughed my butt off. dang!
