I flew yesterday. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I had this image in my head from watching aircrafts in the sky it´s gonna be a smooth ride....but I was terrible wrong.It bumbed up and down ,swayed from side to side oh man I got real dizzy im my head somtimes but not nauseous though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I was about to try steering a bit but I was so tense and nervous so I left that to my pilot.I thought my greatest fear was going to be the height but that was no problem.I got cooled down a bit after a while though but then we was going in for landing and hey,I don´t know how you real pilot do it but that was the scariest part of the whole flight,even more swaying and bumbing but it was a great landing.I know that the air isn´t still but that it was like that I could never imagine.13-14 m/s and about 14/celsius.
Pretty fun but a bit scary too.

Take some Valium before you go, and you won't be afraid about anything. Don't listen to all this NTSB bs about flying being dangerous. When done properly, it's the most carefree thing in the world (kind of an oxymoron, innit?). Seriously, there's nothing to be afraid of. Try outrunning a thunderstorm, landing at a small airfield, unpacking a cargo load, and taking off again before it gets there. Now that's tense.

Congrats! Fun isn't it. First time I flew a few months ago I realized that it feels exactly like flying through the turbulence in a thunderstorm in Forgotten Battles. You just seem to bounce everywhere, but by the third flight, I didn't really notice. Do you plan on going back up?

I tend to think of the bumpiness as just bumps that you encounter when you are driving a car . . . really, Mate . . . most of the time it is about the same. You only get bothered by it in a plane because of the newness of flying.

Congratulations on your first flight.
May there be many more http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Interesting description. If you keep at it, it almost becomes an addiction.

Nah, not almost. it IS an addiction. For I quote:
