Any particular start point you would like? If from uk, I can give you some fp to destinations that quite interesting to arrive at, such as lows, lowi, lxgb, Lsgs, all of them give you a relatively short flight but with a good approach at the other end. All have add on scenery also.You could then do lxgb out to Lpma.Kai tak as mentioned good to, and routes from wiii to there are good one.Into tncm from somewhere like kmia or kmco. Or do like I did, and flew around the world, picking out all the interesting approaches or places with good add on scenery or occasionally just obscure place..if you plan it right you can do it with flights around 2hrs, occasional one maybe bit longer as you circumnavigate the globe....do it online and be even more interesting.

Good thread idea!I too am interested in some plans people have made and are challenging. Online flights would be best.I will dig through my paper heap on this end and see what I can come up with also.

If you want to see the Terrain light up starting at a nice shade of green quickly dwindle to a ND showing nothing but yellow and lots of red save for a narrow corridor to the airport, fly into Geneva, Switzerland (LSGG/GVA). T/O on rwy 5 is awesome with the SID having a sharp climbing left turn due to terrain. I did it the other night flying back to LOWW. The ND is nothing but red in a u-shaped around you. FSDT has some good scenery for it.

That one is excellent, going to try the other suggested ones.ALL SUGGESTIONS ARE WELCOME, as I fly the same mundane routes and feel like a real "bus" driver

Try to make LIMC-LIRN (Malpensa-Naples) in Italy! I'm sure you like it cause it's terrorise all real pilots, because you make a 90° turn just behind a mountain on approach with the alarm "too low terrain-pull up!" in front of the runaway at 2500 FT! You cannot see the runaway until you make that turn! You can see the trees from the second officer window when you make that turn!Nail%20Biting.gifNail%20Biting.gifNail%20Biting.gif

Fly anywhere into EGLC London City. Its a very very short runway with water at both ends and down the sides. Open at one end and between tower blocks at the other end. Not meant for the NGX but with practise I get the 800/900 down safely. I haven`t fallen in the water yet, just had to take off again quickly like a touch and go, but once mastered its not so bad. Not tried it in the 600/700 up to now, been tied up with an airfield I`m resurrecting at EGCB Manchester Barton-now done.Steve

thank you for suggesting this one, I gave it a shot with the AAL 800, everything went fine except I came to astop some 50 meters beyond runway end ... I'll have to try it again.FrancescoZp.s.is it only me or is there anybody else not picking up MGA VOR?

ENGM-EIDW is quite nice, some interesting default scenery over Norway before the coast.

For FrancescoZ... the problem with MGA VOR is the VOR type; in this case MGA is VOR class "T" (Terminal VOR), for this reason the signal is weak, and for flights over 10000ft - 12000 ft and 30 NM out, you lost the signal.

Lovely thread! keep posting!, KPDX is also great to fly into when you're approaching RWY28L/R, try flying it with default atc, the scenery is amazing

Great thread so I will put mt 2 cents in... fly to the most Extreme airports in the world,according to the History Channels Most Extreme Airports List is as follows;10. KSAN - San Diego, CA - Congested airspace, busy single-runway airport - however, no mention of the 3 busy GA airports or 2 Naval Air Stations nearby - just talked about airline traffic to/from KSAN9. LPMA - Madeira, Portugal - Location on island, wind conditions, runway built out into ocean on stilts.8. KEGE - Vail, CO - Altitude and approach/departure through terrain7. LFLJ - Courchevel, France - Altitude, approach through valleys, short runway with an 18.5% grade6. VHHH - Hong Kong Kai Tak - Approach between tall buildings, make sharp turn to final at 300ft AGL5. LXGB - Gibraltar - Spain won't allow departures/arrivals through their airspace, so makes the approach/departure pretty interesting, highway goes across runway4. TNCM - St. Maarten, Netherlands Antilles - Short-ish runway, high terrain on departure end, proximity to beach on approach end, crazy people "riding the fence" when heavies power up to take off (I want to try that!)3. TFFJ - St. Barth's - Short, downhill runway, slam-dunk approach over a hill with automotive traffic at the top2. MHTG - Tegucigalpa, Honduras - High altitude, short runway, approach through surrounding terrain1. VNLK - Lukla, Nepal - High Altitude, 1700ft. runway with 12% gradeFor scenery I most often check out this list http://www.freewarescenery.com/fsx.php. But if you can find a good scenery package it makes them much better! Avsim has tons! travel to all 10 of the airports on the list in any order you feel will get you there safely.Quite the challenge
