Following up on the guide to flying the
VC10, this is a starter guide to operating the One-Eleven.
As usual it's aimed at the novice, so please don't be
insulted if you know all the basics.
Unlike the circuits of Brize Norton, this guide is not
intended as the correct procedure to follow as a pilot.
This guide consists of a simple flight from Bournemouth
Hurn to Newcastle. The intention being to show the basic
operation of the One-Eleven model, not correct piloting
procedure in flying from one airport to another.
For that reason I'm not bothering with ATC, airways
etc. instead just making use of the aircraft's equipment
to navigate using VOR & NDB beacons and then the
ILS for a manual landing.
As I'm not using the FS flight planner (& ATC),
I will make use of the RouteFinder
website to give me route details and then wing it.
I'll climb to 23,000ft for the cruise, just to give
us something to do.
