  1. With this flight we visit the south of Norway and some of the inland provinces. We depart from Fagernes Airport (ENFG), a GA airport near the city of Leirin. It was a used as a commercial airport, but commercial activities ceased in 2018. For the next 19 waypoints we cross westbound and later southbound over the country. We follow the Sørfjord south, overfly the Old Town of Stavanger [STAV], and land at the airport of Sola (ENZV). We depart Stavanger, overfly the Stadium [STADI], and head east. We enter the Lysefjord and look out for the Preikestolen [PREIK], the " priests chair". Preikestolen is a steep cliff which rises 604 metres (1,982 ft) above Lysefjorden. We follow Lysefjorden and land at Valle (ENVE). We turn south, along the river Otra, follow it east for 3 miles and head for Fyresdal (ENFY), our next landing. Fyresdal is known for its many findings from the Viking Age, its mighty Viking graves, heaps of slag, and the former pilgrim church that once stood proudly north of the village centre. Norway's biggest stave church, Heddal Stave Church [CHUR], can be seen on the way to our landing at Notodden (ENNO). We head first south and then east again and land shortly before reaching the Oslo Fjord, at Sandefjord Torp (ENTO). We follow the rugged coast to land at Gullknapp (ENGK). It is an GA airport and since several years discussions are ongoing to expand the airport and open it for commercial flights to Denmark and destinations in Norway. Today's destination is Kristiansand Kjevik Airport (ENCN). Documentation The flightplan and a short pilots guide can be found here. Aircraft We need to cover about 500nm so we require something fast. The TBM 930 or the Vertigo Racer are suitable (no need to race full throttle!!), or any other aircraft cruising with about 200 knots. I'll fly the TBM930 in the D-FAYX livery by Jan Kess Blom. Additional Scenery Fagernes, Stavanger Sola, Fyresdal, Sandefjord, and Kristiansand are available as freeware. For Sola you may also want to download a fix for the red lines on the airport and, as for Bergen on our last flight, the Wombiiactual Asset pack. Also available are the Mesh downloads for Norway, Part I and Part II. ORBX has pretty good payware for Kristiansand, Notodden and Sandefjord. Time and Weather For takeoff on Saturday, set the simulator at 6:00 pm local for July 31, 2021. We prefer real weather.

  2. For those who like to fly in that beautiful part of Norway more often: ORBX just released ENSG Sogndal Haukasen Airport!
  3. Today we visit a couple of small and even smaller airstrips in New Zealand. All of them are in the southern part of New Zealand's North Island. We depart from Wellington (NZWN) and follow a clockwise route, ending at Pencarrow Head (NZ4Q). There are twelve landings enroute, most of them small grass fields. These fields are to my knowledge not included in the MSFS database. We land at Ohariu Farm (NZ4N), Ohariu (NZ4P), Ohariu Valley (NZ4M), Belmont Airstrip (NZ4L), and Battle Hill Station (NZ4G). The next landings are at the default airports of Paraparaumu (NZPP), and Masterton (NZMS). Then we are back to the smaller airstrips. We land at Parsons Landing (NZ4J) and Riversdale Beach (NZ4I). One more default airport is Masterton's second airfield (NZPW). We head back into the Pakuratahi Forrest and land at Kaitoke (NZ4H) and Rimutaka (NZ4R) before we reach today's destination Pencarrow Head (NZ4Q). Flight plans are here. Aircraft: The flight has only 160 miles but 12 landings. A "low and slow" airplane would be a good choice and I will be in a Savage Grravel. As always, please fly what you like. Scenery: Required : New Zealand North Island unregistered airstrips - Part 1 » Microsoft Flight Simulator New Zealand North Island unregistered airstrips - Part 2 » Microsoft Flight Simulator New Zealand North Island airfield pack Pt. 3 » Microsoft Flight Simulator We could make at least one more flights using these three packs!

  4. I did the flight today, it was a great challenge and good fun managing the engines!
  5. Interesting. 1:00 PM in which time zone?
  6. Some Royal Homes of Denmark - and more points of interest We depart from Esbjerg (EKEB), first we head for the coast and then turn inland. The first landing will be at Billund (EKBI). The town is the home of the Lego interacting blocks. We turn east, cross over the Small Belt and land at Odense's Hans-Christian-Anderson airport (EKOD). We fly south and visit Egeskov Castle. The next landing is at Sulkendrup (EKNO). The airfield is really hard to find. I added a further waypoint at the arrival end of runway 27. We cross the Large Belt and admire the bridge before we land at Korsör (EKKO). Again, this landing is very hard to spot, I added a waypoint at the arrival end of runway 29! Both airfields are missing windsocks or other prominent structures that make it easier finding them. We land at Ringsted (EKRS) before heading north towards Roskilde and the Cathedral in the center of the town. We turn east again and land at Copenhagen's International Airport Kastrup (EKCH). We overfly the famous Öresund-Bridge and reach Sweden. We land at Malmö's International Airport Sturup (ESMS). We head north and make one more landing in Sweden, at Landskrona (ESML). We cross back into Denmark and visit the Kronborg at Helsingör. Our next landing is at Grönholt (EKGH). From here we head west and visit Fredericksborg Palace. At Copenhagen we will see the Opera House, Amalienborg and Rosenborg Palaces before we turn west to land at the former Danish Airforce Base Vaerlöse (EKVL). Flight plans and a pilot's guide here. Aircraft: The flight has about 300 miles and 9 landings. Any of the GA-planes are suitable, the Piper Arrow, the Pi-149, the Bonanza or the light Twins. I will be in the Pi-149, please fly what you like. Scenery: The POI are included in the MSFS Nordic Update. Additional sceneries are available but not required: https://flightsim.to/download/ekvl-vaerlose/2154 https://flightsim.to/download/ekgh-gronholt-airfield/6896 https://flightsim.to/download/ekrs-ringsted-flyveplads/4535 Time and Weather For takeoff on Saturday, set the simulator at 17:30 local for June 26, 2021.

  7. There are freeware sceneries for KCVX and the Mackinaw Bridge, in case someone is interested:: https://flightsim.to/file/3330/michiganderflyer-kcvx https://flightsim.to/file/2220/michiganderflyer-bigmac
  8. That looks like a terrific flight! Have fun!
  9. I made a mistake when saving the flight plans for today (thanks Mike for letting me know), so that the description did not match the flight plan. So please re-download the plan here, I hope it is now the correct plan.
