DigitalThemePark Idaho "Sawtooth" GA Flights

Recommended Posts

Greetings All,

 

For those interested, DigitalThemePark has another set of GA flights starting. The Rocky Mountains "Sawtooth" Achievement Flights are set in beautiful central Idaho. This set of flights will tour, at and below canyon rim level, the many scenic and narrow river canyons in this area, including the canyons of the Salmon and Snake Rivers.

 

This is a bush country route. Some of the backcountry strips are extremely challenging: very short with difficult approaches. This calls for your best bush plane. The RealAir Scout, the Carenado C185, the Sibwings Birddog would be good mounts. You will need a plane that can take off and land in strips of as little as 1500 feet, climb to 10,000 feet occasionally, and, ideally, cruise around 100 kts. Those who lean toward eggbeaters are welcome to bring their choppers.

 

Do not be dismayed, however. Each leg starts and ends at less challenging airports. Many are not paved, but everyone should be able to take off and land at them without too much trouble. All intermediate airstrips in each leg are optional. Pilots are not required to land at any airport other than the final strip for each leg. Our first flight will be today, Friday, Aug 3rd @ 1p PT / 4p ET (2000 GMT).

 

These flights will be flown as Real time / Real weather / Real Charts. For more details, connect your TeamSpeak to avsim.digitalthemepark.com and someone will be there to introduce you as a DTP citizen. Within the TS channel, on the right side, you will find more details of the route(s) and points of interest. I would suggest getting connected early in order to make sure your headset fully works before the actual flight. We like to be prompt and warm up our aircraft right at the designated time. btw: Feel free to connect anytime. There is always something going on.


-Todd
