Bush Flying in FSX

Recommended Posts

With the performance issues encountered by many simmers in FSX, flying in out of the way places is a simple way of getting the sim to run at more reasonable frame rates, here is an example of an intresting area you can visit in FSXGlacier Creek airstrip "KGZ"http://www.nps.gov/archive/wrst/cabins/glaciercreekcabin.htmhttp://www.mccarthyair2.com/page12.htmlhttp://www.mccarthyair2.com/page21.htmlhttp://www.mccarthyair2.com/index.htmhttp://www.mccarthyair2.com/bcmapsintro.htmhttp://www.mccarthylodge.com/index.phpYou might also try landing on the Glacier above the airstrip!Anybody have ideas for other "out of the way places" to fly in FSX?Best and Warm RegardsAdrian Wainer

>>Thanks for the tip.>>I was actually thinking of giving Bush flying a try but had no>idea where to start.It doesn't matter whether one has FS9, FSX, or any other version. Bush flying is a blast! I will warn you. Once you try it, it's going to be tough to go back to regular flying! Bush flying gets you down into the true details of the scenery. That's why it is so much fun. Poke around the Valdez, Alaska area, or the area around Duffy's Tavern, Alaska, or anywhere in Alaska! LOL! Buy your wife flowers first so she'll leave you alone. You're going to be there for a while!Don

What about the state of Washington? In the fs9 program I had Emma field and that was great. I installed it in fsx but it didn't work. There must be some others there somewhere.

Great Posts and links from all !I think I'll just land on the Glenn Highway and taxi thanks....I still think one of my favorites is Beaver Creek to Yakutat in the beaver or porter, with random failures on ..... Just to help give the kind of anxiety you would truley have if you made that flight.Did that gauge move? Does the engine sound different? Ahh have a shot of this, it i'll keep you warm and calm you down... I rememeber when this one time when ...Best Regards'GarettBush Flying = Controlled Flight into Terrain, with out the crash.
