Wednesday MFS Flight – Idaho Bush Strips - Sep 2

Recommended Posts

 

I propose a Microsoft Flight Simulator (MFS) Group Flight for Wednesday September 2.   

The attached flightplan includes 14 bush landings as well as intermediate waypoints leading through the canyons of the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness.   
0U3    -    Mahoney Creek USFS
C53    -    Lower Loon Creek
12ID    -    Flying B Ranch Landing Strip
85U    -    Soldier Bar USFS
09ID    -    Taylor Ranch Landing Area
I08    -      Cabin Creek USFS
I98D    -    Vines Airstrip
I97D    -    Mile Hi Airstrip
I99D    -    Dewey Moore Airstrip
C48    -    Wilson Bar USFS
ID28    -    Mackay Bar
24K    -    Krassel USFS
ID93    -    Reed Ranch
KMYL    -    McCall Mun

Flight Plan Here

The total length of the route is 119 miles.  This is familiar territory as we have flown here in P3D and FSX in the Orbx Central Rockies region.  Note that Mile Hi and Dewey More are not official airstrips in MFS but I have verified their locations and landed at them.

There are three good bush plane options depending on which version of MFS you have:   
•    X Cub
•    Savage Cub
•    Zlin Shock Ultra


The advantage of the X Cub is that is has a Garmin navigation display and the route will be easier to follow and it is a bit faster.   The disadvantage is that it cannot fly as slowly as the Shock Ultra and will be trickier to land on some of the strips.     I will be flying the Zlin Shock Ultra, but as always you are free to fly what you like .


Estimated Flight Departure Time:  Wednesday 1800 UTC
Voice Communication: RTWR Teamspeak


Recommend that we join up on teamspeak  /MFS about 15-20 minutes ahead of plan departure time so that I can send out group flight invitations and load in.

Looks great! Another disadvantage of the X Cub is that it is somewhat difficult to turn around on some of these small strips, or maybe I missed something with that airplane.

This looks a terrific flight plan

I know how to load flight plans -plan files-into P3Dv5

Where do you place them in MSFS2020?

Is it possible?

I hesitate to say this but what the heck. Rudder as far as it will go, appropriate brake and enough throttle to give the rudder authority.

You have nothing to fear but fear itself. F.D.R.

Savage Cub is awesome, and the VFR map is as useful as the GPS in the X Cub.
