Aviation piloting rules

Would someone please point me to standards and conventions for flying in and out of airports, etc. How do pilots communicate other than Nearby Chat? Is there a Beginners Guide? And while I'm asking, what are performance considerations when choosing a rotor wing and a fixed wing aircraft - concerning physics and scripts.

Most airports have groups of some kind where you can get information. There's also a couple general groups, the big one being SL Aviation.

Further, if you really want pilot communication with other pilots, a device to look into is the GridTalkie, by Rez Gray.

Neither of these things are required for flying in SL; it really is just rez and go. But both of these things will enhance your experience.

As for performance, that's a personal preference thing. I like rotor wing. Slower, including hovering, is easier on the small sims and sim crossings that SL offers. High speeds and stunts that fixed wing provide just don't get along with SL at all. For that, I fire up M$ Flight Simulator on Steam.

Hello!

 

   Yes, there are several  groups  to join

  Also there is  the Gridtalkie http://sl-aviation.wikia.com/wiki/GridTalkie

  ATC bots as well http://sl-aviation.wikia.com/wiki/ATC_Bot

  Lately there is a  transponder  hud  with what  you can see  the  position of moving planes in real time on a  webpage

 Though not everyone using it, at least not yet

 

 If you have any  question about aviation, shout me an im inworld.....
