I like to fly it Yakutat (PAYA), Unalaska(PADU), Krassel USFS (24K), and Warren USFS (3U1). I also like to fly at the FSX Timberline Lodge scenery available at www.munchbros.com or search for it on google (OTLL) and last but not least the FSX Glacier Park Scenery available here at Avsim (Babb, 49S I think). My favorite for the moment is probably Krassel USFS.Here are some shots I took near Krassel (I put the campsite there with the FSX SDK): http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/173626.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/173627.jpg

Geneva, Switzerland is very nice. Look out for the big water fountain (the Jet d'eau) at the Geneva end of the lake. Then fly along the lake, or through the valleys in the mountains to the south. Pretty stunning scenery with or without TileProxy.Colin

Answering my own question... Flying south from Zurich, first to Lucerne, then over the Gotthardt Pass... really impressive !:-)

From Bodo to Bergen in Norway (with Norway Scenic X) with a bunch of friends in multiplayer, in Iris F-14s, flying 15 feet over the incredibly rugged coast at 650 knots. ;)Bliss.

Its not very pretty or even very well done, but I find myself flying a lot around Pensacola Florida.Pensacola Regional (KPNS) is a decently sized airport. Not too busy but there's plenty of other traffic around. Small and mid-sized airliners frequent it but its big enough that you could fly a 757 out of there and not be out of place (Delta flies 757s out of there with some regularity). Its fairly close to some major airports like Atlanta, Tampa, and Miami. It also has a wide variety of available approaches. Pretty much everything except an offset localizer.Right south of that is Naval Air Station Pensacola, where the Navy does mountains of training for the new pilots. There's also Saufley and Whiting in the immediate area, where the Navy also trains. With the three, there's plenty of space to practice taking off, navigating, and landing. And Eglin and Tyndall aren't far either.

>looks like FSX is good for VFR, not for the big boys.Well, if it's any consolation to you, I fly some pretty big iron in FSX.Been flying KMIA-->MPTO and KMIA-->MGGT lately in A320 and CRJ using IAP's, STAR arrivals. Just did the arc DME approach to MGGT and it was way cool jr.RhettAMD 3700+ (@2585 mhz), eVGA 7800GT 256 (Guru3D 93.71), ASUS A8N-E, PC Power 510 SLI, 2gb Corsair XMS 3-3-3-8 (1T), WD 150 gig 10000rpm Raptor, WD 250gig 7200rpm SATA2, Seagate 120gb 5400 rpm external HD, CoolerMaster Praetorian
