Hello,

I think using a gps on a beautiful old plane like this is a big no! I see there is a sextant available for fsx, anyone using it ?

Cheers

I agree but the actual aircraft on which this is based does have GPS, which in most of Africa makes navigation much easier and cuts operating costs.  I feel the same and always select the no gps option in the options menu.  I don't mind flying VOR and NDB navigation in this bird since this is 1940s technology at its core, widely introduced during the 50s when this bird operated.

Crossed the pont 3 times now (as it's really time consuming, hehe) using the weatherships, the next time I will also try the sextant. Looks really interesting ;)
