Not too long please , maximum 1500nm .

I like KDEN to KSLC and back , or KSLC to KLAS is good, lots of terrain , traffic and procedures to deal with.

As far as FPS. that depends on your system and settings. I have a 'middle of the road' system and performace is fine, even at KLAX

 

Like Eric above KSLC is one of my favorite areas to fly out of, heres a few others KMSO, KBOI, KLAS, KPHX, KSAN, KSFO, KPDX

 

There really are too many to list. One thing you could do is open Google Earth and take a look around. Another thing that I do is to pick an airline, go to their route map site, and select a route from there to fly. Southwest has a lot of routes in the west and a lot are under 2 hours, which is great for me because I like short flights.

 

Hope this helps

Those airports aren't FPS killers if you use FSDT KLAS and KLAX and Flightbeams KSFO, otherwise the default KLAX and KSFO can be fps killers. The default KLAS isnt too hard on FPS though. Myself and others have posted that FSDT mega aiports like KLAX, KJFK, KORD, and KDFW actually get a lot better FPS than the default versions. Plus you can try the demo versions off all of them for free to see how they perform before you buy.

I like to fly from Baltimore to Buffalo with Southwest airlines (an actual Southwest airlines route). It is only a 230 mile flight and it is very easy on fps, and Buffalo is only 1 hour from me :)

Have fun!

You kidding us, right? At my PC, FSDT reduce frame rate down to 5fps, while with default one frame rate hits the 50fps.

If you like a challenging approach, try the 'River Visual' approach into KDCA Runway 19 (Ronald Reagan National Airport in Washington DC.)

Well, PC is obviously not state of art, but there is simply no way to have better frame rate compared with default sceneries (fsdt airports looks great but that costs a lot in terms of performance).

Here is a nice little circuit around the western U.S. you could try:

 

KLAX - KSFO

KSFO - KPDX

KPDX - KSEA

KSEA - KGEG

KGEG - KBOI

KBOI - KSLC

KSLC - KDEN

KDEN - KABQ

KABQ - KPHX

KPHX - KLAS

KLAS - KSAN

KSAN - KLAX

 

Of course I live out west, and I'm partial to the scenery out here. But there is a lot of great stuff to see back east, too. Enjoy!

Any arrival in KSAN is tons of fun. (My home city) Although, I have yet to find good scenery for it.

 

Here's a fun video of the 787-8 Dreamliner landing at KSAN:

Try this website : www.airlineroutemaps.com and look at the different US carriers routes (sorry can't create link on ipad)? Some seem to be a little outdated, but gives you a good idea of all the possibilities.

Most of the routes that people mentioned here - the runways of the airports are not enough for landing \ departing for 747 .
