You'll need O2 for this Flight!

Recommended Posts

A smooth flight at 17,500 ft (and then lower later) from Oceano Co, CA (L52) to French Valley, CA (F70).  

This is one of the most stunning addons for XP11 to date - the Aerobask Legacy RG with user paint of reno racer N913MP.  I effortlessly cruise around 250 knots while still being very fuel efficient.  I depart L52 SE, towards Vandenberg AFB, then onto Gaviota VOR to the shoreline of Santa Barbara CA.  I continue east towards Ventura, pass the Point Mugu NAS and then east towards Malibu and the Pacific Palisades.  I fly by LAX, pass downtown LA, starting a slow descent beyond Santa Ana.  Finally I'm passing Lake Elsinore, and flying overhead Murrieta where I cross midfield at F70, for a tight right downwind RWY 36.

As an outsider to California, I am a big fan of (such) trips around these (California) regions you're visiting, here, in the SIM, Ryan, and in general, in your many posts...

I should have done more visiting like this, in RL, when I had the chance, during my two visits to LA/SF (including one road trip from San Francisco south to Santa Barbara) and one or two (short) Amtrak train trips along the coast...), and, now I don't know...when/if that will happen again...

Your first shot is so typical...of such small town California, as I recall...

Oceano Co, CA (L52) to French Valley, CA (F70)...small CA airports, in this nice plane...(great pictures)...!

BTW, your (XP11) set-up looks ideal and enjoyable for this purpose...!!
