P3D freeware airports for VFR

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I want to  fly some rounds with my Cessna 172 in the US. Can you name some good freeware vfr airfields? There were some from ORBX, but I can't find them anymore.

I am looking for a specific that was in the North/West of the US. Close to Seattle or rather close to the Canadian border, may be it was in Canada. Pretty cool mountainous airfield from ORBX. Do you know which one that might be? It's not on the ORBX Site anymore.

Not sure what you mean by vfr field.  Maybe you mean a smaller airport used typically by general aviation?  I bet you're thinking of Bowerman KHQM.  It's a Orbx freeware airport

Could you be looking for CBB7? It was Orbx freeware but the author pulled the file. It was for FSX and never updated for P3DV3 but would work in P3DV3. A lot have tried to get it going in P3DV4 but it does not look the same with a lot of missing buildings. I gave up on trying to get it to work.

Thank for your answers.

Greg, you have been right with your guess. I searched for CBB7 and the reason I apparently I couldn't find it, is clear now.

It's a shame that it was for FSX, only. I only have P3D v2 and the ASA Cessna 172 for P3D. Never used Prepare so far, still on FSX. So even if there would be a chance to get the file for FSX it would be useless, because I have no proper general aircraft for FSX. Is there other good stuff our there for general aviation for P3D v2? Doesn't need to be ORBX, but when it is I only have Base back and EU Region. Despite EU Package I'm looking for airports in the US.

Orbx has a number of great freeware airports. they do call for regions or global to be installed. I am thinking the base pack you refer to is actually Global. They are worth a try.

I have been doing small airports in Western Kentucky.  I have KPAH, M25 and 2M0 done with 5M9 due out the first of next week and then M34 in a couple more weeks.  These are all within 30 minutes of each other and are done in high detail made from on site pics.  I have flown to all these in real life in a 172 and they should be great for VFR hops..  I also did KILE but that is out in Texas.  Check the file library here.
