Looking for a tropical destination flight tonight

Recommended Posts

Good day all...

Im looking at flying to a tropical destination tonight in the 747, I’m looking for something that has available scenery. I’m thinking along the lines of Cacun, Cuba etc...

any suggestions along with scenery?

 

Thanks

I don't think I've yet to see a decent Cancun. I'd go with the TNCM from FlyTampa, as a matter of fact I think I'll fly over there myself, being that Chicago is stupid cold right now.

This is actually one of my favorite flight themes. Major US airport with crappy weather to a tropical destination. There is so little scenery in V4 it can be a little challenging to find two cities. The lack of a Cancun is a big issue - for 3 years someone has said they are doing it but I have seen nothing except a teaser pic of the tower. Because they have said they are doing it, no one else is touching the airport (yes this is a sore spot because it is my favorite destination IRL).

All Payware (some ore ports from FSX)

San Juan

Punta Cana

Aruba

Curacao

Caracas

Kingston

Montego Bay

Plus plus Fly Tampa's TNCM - St Maatin.  Haha...while you're there, you need to take a hop over to Fly Tampa's SABA Island, but you better rent a Twotter or BN-2 because I don't think you'll be able to drop a 747 down on a 400m strip

St Maartens is sure the best place to land with747 in this zone.

Look only after... videos on you-tube, and look from the beach the runway... Not before you risk to crash 😣

I love landing on RWY 10 at St. Barts TFFJ. One of my favorite challenging airports... whoops. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_Vh0oJro3A

Grand Cayman Islands! You fly right over Cuba if you leave from Florida.  Latin VFR has very good scenery, including the prerequisite docked cruise ships.  While you are lounging at Grand Cayman you can fly hops to Montego Bay (also Latin VFR) and also to places like Cancun and Cozumel.  I make the FSX trip to the Caymans each January.  Great vantage point for additional hops in GA aircraft like the also prerequisite Grand Caravan!

Hi Folks,

And my favorite where you don’t even have to leave the country - Key West (LatinVFR) - anything from a 737 on down seems to land here on a relatively short challenging runway...

San Juan (LatinVFR) makes a great base of operations for turbos or twins to hop around the islands once you get there - seems to have flights everywhere - such as Tradewind Aviation’s PC-12’s to Saint Bart’s (FlyTampa)... Honestly - I have yet to make a good landing there with Carenado’s bird - made many attempts - too slippery or I’m a bad pilot...

Taxi2Gate need to get on the stick with some v4 love in the Carribean - have a few that need updates...

Regards,

Scott

Was this announced somewhere? I can't find anything on their forum. I also can't find any updates to the original story at AirDailyX.

Gerry,

I Lived there on a Bukit (hill) overlooking the airport and Jimbaran Bay for five years before moving to East Java.

Believe it or not, it was the tourists (mainly young Aussies) who drove me away. It became a case of becoming increasingly embarrassed about being an Aussie.

Much more peaceful here, no airport to overlook but no tourists either.  

That brings me to another Indonesian destination, Surabaya - WARR. Also BDO Aviation scenery. Pretty airport but not a great deal for any tourists.

Really just another big City.

 Thanks for the "Greenness" LOL

Aruba (TNCA) and Curacao (TNCC) have been redone for P3D4 recently by Tropicalsim, if I remember correctly, there was a discount for owners of previous versions.

There is a beautiful P3D3 Bali scenery by Aerosoft. As far as I can see, it works in P3D4 too.

Greetings from Thailand. Not a bad place to pass one's retirement either.
