SEQM - Quito, Ecuador

Recommended Posts

A pleasant surprise while navigating through some of the default airports.  Give SEQM - Quito a try.  The approaches are somewhat challenging with a lot of mountainous terrain, beautiful scenery and high density altitude.  The airport is at 7910'.

I haven’t been there yet in MSFS but I loved flying heavy freighters into the Flightbeam version in P3D.  Beautiful scenery and all the challenges of a high altitude airport!

I agree....a fantastic area to fly in, the airport is well done and the surrounding mountainous terrain is stunning!

Hope the real weather could model the strong crosswinds SEQM is famous for in the dry season about to begin.

It was fairly close to the metar report for that time when I went in.  I didn't break from cloud cover until the FAP.  I flew in from Columbia, experiencing everything from high altitude turbulence to rain squalls.

I did too. This scenery is just wonderful/ I have a video I made a while back with that scenery:(3) MSFS 2020 LATAM aterriza en Quito - YouTube

 

Nice vid.  On youtube you wrote about the C-46.  JustFlight made a C-46 for P3D a few years back, maybe they will make a C-46 for MSFS also.  The C-46 is really interesting with its cockpit view, and good for high-altitude Colombia / Ecuador flying.

As for SEQM scenery, MSFS needs the FlightBeam SEQM we have in P3D, although the default is still pretty good.

Nice for the sim, not so cool in real life 🙂, have been in a couple of missed approaches to RWY36 with all people screaming because of heavy turbulence... the scenery in the sim is great.
