  1. Germany South Part V : Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg, culture and large cities. We depart from Grafenwöhr (ETIC) and fly through the German Bundesländer of Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg until we land at Allgau (EDJA). In between we will land at Bayreuth (EDQD), Nuremberg (EDDN), Fuerth (ES76), Bamberg AAF (ETEJ), Schweinfurth (EDFS), Giebelstadt AAF (ETEU), Rothenburg (EDFR), Buhlhof (EDGI), Volkeshofen (EP44), Hahnweide (EDST), and Laupheim Army (ETHL). Flightplan & Pilots Guide: Available here. Aircraft: The route is 306 miles, so we should take a plane that cruises with about 170 KIAS. I think I'll take the A2A Comanche again. But as always, the choice is yours. Recommended scenery: Orbx Germany South. Particulars: Date and time: Saturday December 9, 2017, 19:00 UTC Where: AVSIM RTWR Teamspeak - Casual Flights Channel Teamspeak Server Address: ts.teamavsim.com Cross-Platform Multiplayer: JoinFS. (FSX, FSX-SE, and P3D) If you want to help others enjoy the multiplayer experience, don't forget to enter your aircraft details on the multiplayer spreadsheet (linked here). Your courtesy will save others a lot of time and effort. Thanks! Recommend that you set your initial clock to 12:30 hours in local time to account for flight time and the usual "faffing about" time.
  2. Thanks, glad you liked it!
  3. Thanks Mike.
  4. I just found that Little Nav Map has now a major update. It includes an airac-cycle and exports the flight plans in many more formats, one of them ist the format for the Majestic Das8 Q400. The SIDs and Stars are depicted on the map, easy to find the right one now. Have a look here!
  5. Germany South Part IV : From the East to the Center: Land of poets and thinkers We start at Dresden (EDDC) and zig-zag our way to the Wasserkuppe (EDER), the famous birthplace of German Glider flying. In between we will land at Nobitz (EADC), Jena Schongleina (EDBJ, an ORBX airport), Erfurt (EDDE), Eisenach (EDGE), and Brandensteinsebene (EDQC). We will see many interesting, historic places like Augustusburg, Altenburg, Weimar, the Wartburg and more. And some more castles of course. Flightplan & Pilots Guide: Available here. Aircraft: The route is 305 miles, so we should take a plane that cruises with about 170 KIAS. I think I'll take the A2A Comanche again. But as always, the choice is yours. Recommended scenery: Orbx Germany South. ORBX Jena Schongleina (EDBJ), not necessary but nice to have. All other airports we land on are enhanced (like in all full regions from ORBX), so no other addons are required.

  6. What a paint! Thanks Ron!!
  7. Yeah, on many different airplanes like the Texan, the Spitfire, the Mustang....
  8. It was not a perfect diamond but close.. Sorry for the wrong paints, but those were the only ones that resulted in a visible airplane. Same problem with the wrong names... Echelon could be improved on my side:
  9. Sorry, I posted a wrong link in my post above. Pilot's Guide and flight plan are available here! Thanks Mike for letting me know!
  10. Germany South Part III : Bavaria, here we come... Today we stay in one German Bundesland, Bavaria. We will see palaces, a big city, but not too many castles. That will change with the next flight though.... Departure airport will be Kempten-Durach (EDMK), once part of the ORBX freeware package Europe. We land at Fuessen (ES77), Kochel am See (EV11), Koenigsdorf (EO41), Vogtareuth (EDNV), Oberschleissheim (EDNX), Erding AB (ETSE), Eggenfelden (EDME), Fürstenzell (EDMF), Vilshofen (EDMV), Griesau (EDPG), and finally at Hiernheim (EO12). Flightplan & Pilots Guide: Available here. Aircraft: The route is 295 miles, so we should take a plane that cruises with about 170 KIAS. I think I'll take the A2A Comanche. But as always, the choice is yours. Recommended scenery: Orbx Germany South. One remark: Please check that in your ORBX LOWI Control Panel the correct tick mark is set with respect to GES. Otherwise you will most likely encounter strange texture issues in Southern Germany. All airports we land on are enhanced (like in all full regions from ORBX), so no other addons are required.

  11. Germany South Part II : Roman heritage, more castles and towns For this flight we stay at the westernmost part of Germany until we make a short turn to the east. Departure airport will be Trier-Föhren (EDRT), and we will land at Saarbrücken (EDDR), Lachen-Speyerdorf (EDRL), Baden-Oos (EDTB), Neuhof (LFGC, yes, that's in France!), Freiburg (EDTF), and Schwenningen (EDTS) before we reach our destination for today, Friedrichshafen (EDNY). Flightplan & Pilots Guide: Available here. Aircraft: The route is 325 miles, so we should take a plane that cruises with about 170 KIAS. Landing at Dornier's home airport Friedrichshafen, I think I'll take Carenado's Do 228. But as always, the choice is yours. Recommended scenery: Orbx Germany South. All airports we land on are enhanced (like in all full regions from ORBX), so no other addons are required. Particulars: Date and time: Saturday November 4, 2017, 19:00 UTC; Attention, that is a change for pilots from the USA!

  12. Lots of nice shots, thank you!
  13. Great map! One day we could track the Rhine from Lake Constance to the North Sea, that would be an interesting flight!
  14. Great, thanks Mike! This is how the 747 got there.
  15. A quiz, yeah, excellent idea...
