Best 737 routes?

Recommended Posts

Looking for the best routes worth flying in a 737 type aircraft. Anywhere in the world will do and for whatever reason you think the route is worth flying! 
Looking for places to go with the iFly 737, thanks!

Why not think about joining a virtual airline? Four of the best, in my opinion, are: Royal Dutch Virtual, Virtual Ryanair, Virtual Norwegian and Jet2 Virtual.

Mike offers good advice Skywatcher,

 

To answer your general question is difficult since the 737 (and its variants) are so versatile.  It would help us enormously if you could define the type of flying that most interests you, such as:-

 

duration of flight

is scenery/mesh important

difficult or interesting approaches

between payware, freeware or default airports

manual or autopilot

day, night, dawn or dusk

etc., etc.

How about anything in Alaska Airline's route structure in the State of Alaska? Some great flying all around. The best scenery is in the Southeast part of the state, ORBX makes some addons and another guy makes one called Tongass Fjords that are very realistic.

Thanks Dan208B! Looks good, I have Tongass Fjords but yet to explore it so may be time.

 

Appliance,

 

No preference on anything. Any route that anyone finds of interest for any reason I'd like to explore it. There must be places people like flying in FS for one reason or another. Thought it would be good to share those routes here. I always enjoy a quick hop YMML-YSCB using VOZ scenery as one example but enjoy long flights equally.

I really enjoy flying around the Caribbean, nice scenery and the weather is usually good. I also like flying from KIAD-KTPA and back since those are the two airports I have spent most of my life living near. American Airlines flies a 757 on the route but KMIA-MHTG is fun too. I really like the challenging approach into Tegucigalpa. Key West (KEYW) is also really fun, especially at night since it has such a short run way and no precision approach.

I love flying from Moscow Domodedovo (MDesign Scenery) to either Yekaterinburg or Norilsk (both Aerosoft), with the NXG, flying the Nordwind livery, in bad snowy weather.      Just interesting because they're "off the beaten track".

 

If you want something warmer, like Samuel above, I fly the caribbean a lot on the NGX.  Tons of scenery (payware and freeware) and some nice visual island approaches.

For beta testing the product below I use the PMDG B738W from KMSP to KMDW (Minneapolis to Chicago Midway).

waypoint.1=FGT, V, N44* 37.51', W093* 10.55', +06000.00,
waypoint.2=SHUZE, I, N44* 21.27', W092* 50.26', +14000.00,
waypoint.3=UKN, V, N43* 16.48', W091* 32.14', +29000.00,
waypoint.4=DBQ, V, N42* 24.05', W090* 42.32', +29000.00,
waypoint.5=CVA, V, N41* 42.30', W090* 28.59', +29000.00,
waypoint.6=CVA42, I, N41* 15.55', W089* 45.43', +29000.00,
waypoint.7=BDF, V, N41* 09.35', W089* 35.16', +29000.00,
waypoint.8=MOTIF, I, N41* 13.46', W088* 30.03', +18000.00,
waypoint.9=MINOK, I, N41* 28.07', W088* 21.47', +12000.00,
waypoint.10=JOT, V, N41* 32.47', W088* 19.06', +11000.00,
waypoint.11=KMDW, A, N41* 47.09', W087* 45.08', +000000.00,
 

While I use FlyTampa's Midway and freeware FRF KMSP, this should still work well with default. Decoded in this are the waypoints for SID/DEP UKN1 now defunct but current as of JAN 2013 and the STAR MOTIF4 transition in CVA Davenport, IA still on the books.

 

About an hour enroute and 381 NM.

Providing you've got descent scenery and lod try LIMF to EGKK

Usually requiring a long continuous climbing turn from take-off to cruise to get enough height to cross the Alps.

Well, Colombia's Air Force One (FAC0001, a BBJ1) usually flies between SKBO and SKMD. The approach to SKMD is a lovely one. Just remember that Medellín is in a valley...
