  1. Cartwheeling through the Southwest Pacific – Solomons, New Britain, and Papua New Guinea. Starting from Henderson Field on Guadalcanal the route will hop-scotch from island to island up the Solomons to New Britain. The route then proceeds to New Guinea and finishes at Port Morsby. To cover the full route will take several weeks. We will fly as far as we can during a session and resume from that point on the next flight. Full Planned Route and Pilots Guide for Part 1 is here Aircraft: The total route is 1367nm. A cruise speed of better than 300 KIAS would be advisable to complete the flight in time. The route features many primitive airstrips and somewhat long over water legs. World War 2 Warbirds are the preferred aircraft as they have the speed to cover the significant distances between airstrips and are appropriate for the rough field conditions. I will fly the A2A P-51 (while not exactly correct for the Solomon’s Campaign period), but another good choice would be the P3D default P-38. Please fly what you like. You should set your departure time to 14:25 hrs local time. If we fly for 3 hours that should give us an extra 20 minutes before we are out of daylight. I’m not quite sure where we will be after flying after 3 hours, but I assume that everyone is OK with flying a high performance warbird, at night, over water, and into an unlighted airstrip.

    Sunday Formation Fun

    Pilotage Ron, Just Pilotage😊
  6. Look whose flying formation with the NGX.
  7. Thanks for the scenery links Gunter. I have applied for simmershome club membership and will install when access is granted. I seemed to remember that I had a Samos scenery and sure enough I had previously purchased the 29Palms payware version. I will be using it. Link below for those who might be interested. https://29palms-store.de/home/22-lgsm-samos.html Jeff
  8. After the Sunday formation flight I did a tubeliner journey using the MaddogX to the new Orbx airports in Sweden. Screenshots below (hope you like them Ron)

    New England – Fall Colors

    Bonanza's at Bar Harbor Airport at the conclusion of the flight
  10. New England – Fall Colors Today’s flight will feature the mountains, lakes, the Atlantic coastline, and the fall colors of New England. Starting from Adirondack Regional (KSLK) at Saranac Lake New York the route crosses several mountain ranges in northern New England before finishing on the coast of Maine at Bar Harbor (KBHB). The first leg is a short 13nm hop to Lake Placid (KLKP) before climbing into the heart of the Adirondack mountains passing directly over Mt Marcy, then turning east and crossing Lake Champlain before landing at Middlebury State Airport (6B0). Departing Middlebury we climb over Green Mountains and land at Knapp State (KMPV) just south of Montpelier Vermont. The route continues east crossing the Connecticut River (the Vermont / New Hampshire border) and on to Mount Washington Regional (KHIE). It is a steep short climb to the top of Mt Washington (the highest peak in the Presidential Range of the White Mountains) and then a longish 72nm cruise to Waterville (KWVL) with views to the great northern woodlands and distant mountains off your left wing. The next leg takes us to the Atlantic coast of Maine at Belfast Municipal (KBST). On our final leg we will circumnavigate Mount Desert Island flying by Bar Harbor before finishing at Hancock County Bar Harbor (KBHB). Flight plans (both PLN and GFP formats) Aircraft The route is 295nm and a reasonably fast (~150knt) General Aviation aircraft is recommended. This is a good opportunity for Bonanza pilots to improve their proficiency. As always you are free to fly what you like. Particulars Date and time: Saturday 29nd September 2018, 1800 UTC.

    Stikine Backcountry (Redux)

    Tongass Fjords deserves all the praise it has received from the community. Holger Sandman was the principal designer and he created something very special. It fills gap between Orbx Southern Alaska and Orbx Pacific Fjords. It takes some doing getting it into P3D but it does work. The definitive how to guide is here:

    Stikine Backcountry (Redux)

    Stikine Backcountry NOTAM Real Time weather could present problems flying through the interior mountains. I recommend that you use a fair weather theme or for those with Active Sky: Set Historical Dynamic: June 16, 2018 1200UTC Departing Wrangell Set Sim Time to 16:30 local. This should get us into Petersburg before dark. Petersburg is well light so if we are a bit late it will not matter.

    Californias Gold Part 1 Sierra Nevada's

    Echo what Mike said. Great trip. Also really like the photo in the announcement post. Captures the feeling of a beautiful High Sierra day.
  14. It's recycling time again. This flight was first done in June 2015.
