Duking it out over Wyoming and Utah

Recommended Posts

Flying over payware and homespun scenery in RealAir's wonderful P3D compliant Duke, such a delight to hand fly or fly on autopilot.  I love the Alpine Vistas of Wyoming and Utah, I have always loved flying over the Salt Lake and parts of the Rockies in real life, you know you are flying when you can soar over these formidable barriers to land crossings.

I would love to follow this flight plan.

It is probably obvious for American people to recreate it, but for a foreigner (I am French), it is difficult to guess to most scenic viewpoints...

Could you help ?

Thanks

Gérard

The flight plan is from Jackson Hole, Wyoming to Salt Lake City, Utah.  It is a fairly short flight in high altitude piston, turboprop or jet aircraft.  If you want to fly a bit further, fly from Bozeman Montana to Salt Lake City.  Or for a shorter flight, Bozeman Montana to Jackson Hole.  Finally, Denver to Jackson Hole is also a nice flight, so there are several routes for you to enjoy.

For nice European routes, fly from Zurich to Geneva, or from Munich to Milan which soars over the Gotthard Massif.  Geneva to Milan, roughly up the Rhone river, covering French, German and Italian scenery and flying near the Matterhorn, is also a beautiful route, one which I have covered by train while on Eurail through Europe a couple of times, and once by bus from Chamonix to Zermatt near the Matterhorn.

Short flights are my "cup of tea" 🙂

Same here, I prefer flights of 30-90 minutes, depending on the scenery enroute and aircraft.

Good ole' Duke in 4.4, that's awesome. Thx for sharing your 4.4 experience. It looks like I'll be more interested in photoscenery now with 4.4.
