Royal Turbine above la Vallée du Rhône

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow simmers

Just a short 1h flight between San Juan (Spain, LESO) and Valence Chabeuil (France, LFLU)

As I wanted a bit of Rock'n Roll during approach, I found a breezy METAR : :cool:

LFLU 061430Z AUTO 35025G40KT 9999 FEW062 17/03 Q1019

 

LESO, the cute scenery by Simzaleak (but really heavy FPS-wise)

Very short take-off with those 2 powerful PT6 and one notch of flaps

The BTZ SID is basically a slow right turn above the ocean which ends when crossing BTZ above the coast

End of the SID above Biarritz

Fast cruise above Southern France with 30-40 kts of tailwind for an average of 300 kts GS. The GTN750 indicates a 2000 ft descent to reach our SID entry point MTL at 5 000 ft. Throttle back, nose down, we gently go down following the Vallée de l'Ardèche, to reach the Vallée du Rhône near Montélimar.

Heading North having crossed the Rhône, right above MTL

The approach to Valence is beautiful between the Massif Central on the Left (West) and the Vercors and Alps on the right (East). FreemeshX provides a great amount of details.

I did the whole approach with this Hawker 800 in my 6 coming from Saudi Arabia. With a ~30 kts front wind I was able to take the first left exit and avoid this jet a go-around.

Thanks for sharing.

How did I miss this freeware of LESO? I tried it in p3d v4, but there are some texture bleed issues and no runway light.

It's posts like these why I visit AVSIM daily.

I sincerely thank you for taking the time to post a comment here

LESO is a beautiful freeware scenery. I think Simzaleak is woring on a V2 version of many of their sceneries. Hopefully, it will bring full P3D V4 compatibility.

I saw on their website that the dev is working on a v2. I also saw that they have some airports that work in p3d v2. I downloaded LFBZ & LEPP and will check them out. I have a feeling that these will work in p3d v4.

What makes LESO so special is the location and the detail around the airport, Even in p3d v4 most of the scenery is in tact and it looks amazing. Every now and then, I see in the screen shot forum a "must have" airport like this one that captures my attention and gets me excited. I live for these moments.

I sincerely thank YOU for sharing your passion with our community.
