Skymaster get away. (Only a couple)

Recommended Posts

Real life was being a bit of a swine today, so once things had calmed down I went for a brief sortie from one of my bucket list places:- Princess Juliana Airport, Sint Maarten. I flew out to Saba Island, landed, then flew back to Grand Case, Saint Martin. I should have taken more screenshots, but I just wanted to escape to the virtual skies. :happy:

Here's the Skymaster all safe, sound and warm after the flight.

Seems like I need to see if there an upgrade for TFFG - according to Google maps, all the light aircraft are parked on hardstanding.. :blush:

All my favourite 'bucket list' places too,and love that Cessna 337. Wish I had one for P3Dv4. Had it in FSX.

Love the Skymaster myself, such a unique sound, plus I remember the Westpac one doing shark patrols around Port Phillip Bay beaches (Melbourne Australia) when I was a kid.

Do you have a flight plan?

I'm not familiar with the islands and their airports but always keen to fly the new experience.

Sure is, though I don't know about any special price.

No sorry, but it should be visible in VFR. Take off from TNCM then fly SSW - Saba is about 25-30km away. You should probably be able to see it from TNCM, depending upon your mesh - the island's peak is almost 3000 feet high. In FSX there is a (fictitious??) VOR at 108MHz which might be useful (or not!).

EDIT - I have the freeware Saba via the AVSIM library.
