To Providence or Bust, In Simulated Flight
It was about as gorgeous an evening as can be digitally created on X-Plane 11. I took off in my virtual Cape Air-liveried Beechcraft Baron from Nantucket, Massachusetts, at sunset, climbing to 4,500 feet after requesting VFR flight following from the live air traffic controller handling Boston Center flight sim traffic. I pointed the Baron toward Martha’s Vineyard, which would serve as the first visual checkpoint on the way to Providence (KPVD) in Rhode Island, some 45 miles ahead. After setting the props, throttles, and mixtures to a comfortable cruise setting, I trimmed out the airplane so I could hand fly it.

Old timers and their stories: My experience volunteering at an assisted living facility
Names have been changed for anonymity. After the bell rings, most students rush out of school to participate in sports, complete homework or hang out with friends, but I make my way to Bartholomew House — a nearby assisted living facility. Upon entering the building, I greet some of the seniors in the lobby and settle in to help with planned activities for the day. Whether it be trivia, Bingo or watching movies, the residents of Bartholomew House have plenty of ways to stay entertained.
