Emma Field, where art thou?

Recommended Posts

Fsimdummy that I am, I can't make head or tail of VORs. Can any Emma Field addict out there give me compass bearings from, say, Bremerton and Seattle-Tacoma? Would be much appreciated: want to get there in time for today's barbecue!hablot@dsl.pipex.com

Thanks, Francois. I know: it's in the manual. Question is, how to fly there from elsewhere!

Hablot,From Bremerton I fly about 267 or 268 degrees. In the distance you will see what appears to be a river with a line of mountains just past it. Emma is on the West bank of that river this side of the mountains. As you approach the area,look for the two waterfalls. As I remember, it is easy to locate.

One more thing... if you use FSNavigator and use the database build utility included with it, Emma will show up on the navigation map. Actually, for all I know, it was already there but I always rebuild the database after installing new scenery out of habit.

One other great VFR tip, as you get close to the river look for the power line clearing on the east side of the field. It looks like a big wide area that would be for a fire break or a powerline access and its really easy to see and a good line up for the runway as it basically paralells it. It runs the whole length of the added/blended scenery.hornit
