Heads up Alaska bushmen and wilderness adventurers... Free? Yes sir. Holger Sandmann and Jon Patch are nearing completion their "Glacier National Park" freeware very soon, which expands the already incredible Misty and Tongass Fjords (payware) regions even farther north to encompass a huge area: Lynn Canal, Glacier National Park, the pristine wastes of the Juneau Icefield, and careful renditions of Juneau and Skagway to say the least. All of us...especially long time FS bush pilots... are forever grateful to Holger and Jon for their passion and dedication to this caliber "real world" rendering. Looking forward to... http://forums.simflight.com/viewtopic.php?...331711de55d4cb4In addition, the "Amigos" (Bill Dick, Woody Fout, Phil Cayton, Misty Moorings' Doug Linn and myself) are putting the final touches on a Tongass Fjords scenery enhancement entitled "SIRP" (the Stikine Icefield Reasearch Program).

These camps are remote, hard to find, and (especially in real world weather) quite challenging.

Ed:Hey... can't wait for these! The Tongass/Misty area is literally my favorite flying area in FS9, period. I knew about the new GNP coming out, but hadn't heard about SIRP. Thanks for the heads-up!Regards,Jay

Great news. All the stuff from that crew and FSAddon are definitely my favourite sceneries to fly in and their is a ton of community freeware and sharing out there too which makes their packages much more than they seem at first glance.
