California wine country flight: Angwin Parrett to Napa County (Cessna 172).

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I flew up from Napa County airport in Fs9 to Angwin Parrett, about a 15 minute flight up the Napa valley yesterday and spent the night at Pacific Union College who own the airfield and pretty much everything else up there. Angwin Parrett is a paved runway airport and is at an elevation of 1,800ft north of St. Helena in the Napa valley.

 

The following are pics from the short flight back. Weather was clear and calm with winds from the South and cruise altitude was 2,800ft.

Vinyards maybe!

Hope people liked the pics from this short flight. Scenery used was Megascenery Northern California for my rather old (sorry) Fs9.

 

Many thanks for looking,

 

Pierre

Hi!

 

Just wanted to say many thanks for the comments/encouragement. My system is no way near as good as most of the FsX stuff on here but cool they weren't too bad!

 

Many thanks,

 

Pierre
