Pacific Northwest?

Recommended Posts

Well winter is setting in here... long, cold and gloomy nights :-(But more time for flightsim :-)I've just finished a long stint flying the PSS Airbus around Europe and North America, actually logging well over 120 hours. I'm now planning a return to GA...My GA hangar currently includes the DF Archer and Cardinal, FSD's C115, Cheyenne and Seneca, as well as F1's Golden Eagle.I'm planning to spend the next few weeks with these aircraft. I intend to fully explore Lago's fantastic UK Terramesh in the Archer, and then do the same for Ireland in the Cardinal. I also plan on taking the Seneca on a tour of Austria.For something a bit different, I plan on taking the C421 on a long trip from my native England all the way down to Australia, and then fly back to England in the Cheyenne via the Pacific, North America, and Atlantic.Whilst I was flying the Airbus around North America, a couple of flights took me to the Pacific Northwest. One was a United flight from KORD-KSEA, and the other was Air Canada CYYZ-CYVR. I was really struck by how beautiful the scenery was in this part of the world :-) I'd like to take some flights around the area in the C115...So does anyone have any suggestions for places I could visit in the Pacific Northwest? Any interesting airports or landmarks I should check out?Cheers.

The first things that immediately pop into mind are the space needle in Seattle, flying down the Columbia River, Mt. Hood, and an absolute "must see" is Mt. McKinley in the Denali National Park in Alaska.Before you start this tooling around, there's something you should take a look at that will really enhance your visual pleasure.Pacific Northwest ***3rd Edition*** Scenery Catalog - Over 100 files listedFile Description:36 ADDITIONAL files since the 2nd Edition!!

Olympic National Park is a must see, as well as Mt. Rainier. I live in the Pacific NW, If you fly around, you'll see many great things.
