A2A Cherokee, in the most under-rated Orbx region.....

Recommended Posts

I bought this region literally more than a year ago, and have just never gotten around to flying in it..... until today.

 

Orbx EU  Wales is absolutely stunning.  The Mid Wales section in amongst the most scenic - the beautiful valleys.

 

Here I took a flight on a hazy late Spring day, from Welshpool (EGCW), east on track 291 degrees, to the coastal town of Llanbedr (EGFD).  I flew the A2A Cherokee with no GPS fitted and flew the 68km flight by visual reference only.  I somehow managed to complete the en-route section, right in front of the target airfield (more luck than airmanship) :smile:

I bought OrbX Wales some years back and, you're right, I rarely fly there. Underated...  Your nice pics of these rolling hills is a hint to go and check again  :smile:  ! And the A2A Cherokee is such a sweet plane !

Nice shots! Orbx Wales is pretty but I think I prefer Horizon VFR X, especially when topped with Treescapes (I appreciate this costs a lot more though)! I get better framerates with that combination too.

 

Sim flying in Wales in general I think is underrated. Partly because those outside the UK probably don't know much about it (so they wouldn't go seeking scenery, as they wouldn't know what they'd be getting). And partly because of its small geographic area; you're not likely overfly Wales on most airline sectors, so you have to visit specifically for VFR to see any of it.
