  1. A few weeks ago, I found out that the website that publishes European photoscenery for free, now has also all of New Zealand on offer (also for free). I have downloaded all 16 files (size: 1 GB each), combined them to a single folder and installed them in my sim. They can be used for FSX, FSX-SE and all versions of P3D. I have stored all my photoscenery on an external 5 TB hard drive (standard HDD, no SSD). Within the flightsimulator, the scenery sits on top of my ORBX entries. The files come with their own autogen and in case you have ORBX NZNI and NZSI installed on your system, all ORBX airports plus all POI will show up. Next to ORBX, I have also installed payware from Godzone (Auckland and Tauranga). As you will see, all of this blends well with the photoscenery. This first part shows the North Island, the second part concentrates on the South Island. I have chosen as weather “clear skies”, so that the scenery is better visible. Here we are at the most northern tip of NZ: We follow the western shore to reach the 90 mile-beach Having crossed over to the east side in order to get a closer look at the Bay of Islands Now it’s on to Auckland, the city of sails North of Tauranga Further in the south of NZ’s North Island. Taking off from Wellington Intern. The autogen that is visible here is from ORBX Thanks for viewing. I have to admit that the scenery looks more impressive on my (larger) computer screen. If you are interested in downloading the scenery, here is the link: http://italyphotoreal.weebly.com/download.html You have to scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the NZ scenery. Btw, it has also scenery for the UK!
  2. We depart from the famous Red Bull “Hangar 7” in Salzburg, which does not only house some perfectly restored vintage planes, but also an excellent restaurant The scenery is from Austria Professional and the plane is the superb Ultralight Mitchell Wing U2, which is available free from the Aerosoft website: https://forum.aerosoft.com/index.php?/topic/55526-get-your-free-mitchell-wing-v101-here/ Thanks for viewing
  3. For the past 14 years or so....since I was 15 years old. I always do domestic flight around Europe and then do a long haul flight back to the states on Thanksgiving day. I usually do a lot of Europe flights up until new years day. It started out as a random thing to do because it seemed so new and fresh. (I usually only stay in the states when doing domestic flights). It ended up turning into a tradition of mine. The first flight to start the over the pond season was a flight from Frankfurt to Madrid. I then took a 747 from Madrid to San Francisco. Here are some screenshots of both flights.

  5. Hi everyone, my first post, so would greatly appreciate some advice. I’m getting in a knot understanding the relationship between my add-ons in respect of flight planning. I’m lucky enough to have a RW IR and a DA40 with an Aspen and GNS430s so fly the Carenado Bonanza inP3D for the same instrumentation. I want to create lower airways flightplans and fly them in P3D and that can also be understood by VoxATC. Am I correct in assuming I should create the IFR flight plan in something like Plan-G and then import it into ASP4? Or create the flight plan in P3D directly? What is the best given my add-ons? Yes, I have the weather engine turned off in Skyforce leaving weather to ASP4, but I’d appreciate some clarity on how I set all this up to fly an IFR plan and, hopefully, have actual rw weather en-route. I’ve tried to digest the user guides and not rush to ask what I should have read first, but I'm afraid the fog is getting thicker..!
  6. I find myself enjoying the sights and sounds of the PNW over any area of the flightsim world.

    Cloud Dancing

    Continuing my journey in the PNW region, I'm having a blast flying between the clouds near Orcas Island, and then finally landing at KORS. Most of the work is between 10k and 16,500 ft. I've got dual Reality-XP GTN 750's in this bird!

  8. After a longer pause we are ready to continue our flight around the Mediterranean Sea with our freshly serviced Citation. From Athens we fly first west, then head up north along the picturesque Greece and Albanian coast, before we finally turn west again in order to reach the southern portion of Italy. From Sicily we turn north-west for Sardinia, where we will stop this leg in Decimomannu, home of a NATO training facility. Dead ahead is the Corinth Canal, which connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnese peninsula from the Greek mainland. The canal was built in the late 19th century through the Isthmus at sea level and has no locks. It is 6.4 km (4 mi) long and at its base 21.4 m (70 ft) wide, which makes it impassable for most modern cruise ships. Flying west along the northern shore of the Peloponnese peninsula We pass over Corfu or Kerkyrais, the second largest of the Greek Ionian islands. With its small satellite islands, it forms the northwestern-most part of Greece Along the Albanian coast. If you look for a quiet spot without tourists in this otherwise popular portion of the Mediterranean Sea, this is the place to choose Heading west towards the Italian coast, we make a low level pass over two merchant ships We reach Italy near the town of Crotone, which was established by the Greek in 710 BC. Today it has some 65,000 inhabitants and is known for its 11th century cathedral and 16th century castle After having crossed the southern Apennine Mountains we get closer to Sicily But first we have to cross the Strait of Messina, a narrow strait between the eastern tip of Sicily (Punta del Faro) and the western tip of Calabria (Punta Pezzo) in the south of Italy. The 3.1 km (1.9 mi) wide strait has strong tidal currents, which can be treacherous for smaller ships In the distance one can see Mount Etna Mount Etna is Europe’s highest active volcano. Currently it is 3,329 m (10,922 ft) high, but this can vary with summit eruptions. It is also the highest peak in Italy south of the Alps Mount Etna is one of the world’s most active volcanoes and is in an almost constant state of activity. The fertile volcanic soils support extensive agriculture, with vineyards and orchards spread across the lower slopes of the mountain. In June 2013, it was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites North of Sicily, in the Tyrrhenian Sea, are the Aeolian Islands. Their shape is the result of volcanic activity over some 260,000 years Heading further north-west, we finally reach Sardinia The industrial outskirts of Cagliari, Sardinia’s capital, which is just a short hop south of Decimomannu, or simply called “Deci” by most NATO soldiers Over Deci’s military airport. Last time I was there in uniform was in 1975 😏 Let’s have a beer
  9. Only a few breaks in the clouds on this short flight from Port Angeles to Sekiu WA. My PC12 is nicely equipped with GTN750 and GNS530W. Also, thanks to @scottb613 for the incredible paint job. And also the mysterious new flight model update makes this a pretty darn great addon. (I can recommend it again!)

  11. For our third leg, we will cross the Nile again westwards for a short hop to the Giza Pyramid Complex. Then we head east to the Suez Canal, cross the Sinai Peninsula in order to reach Aqaba and the Wadi Rum. The ancient city of Petra is just 100 km (60 miles) north of it. From there we’ll fly further north to the Dead Sea, Tel Aviv and Haifa, where this leg of our tour will end. The Great Pyramid of Giza (also known as the Pyramid of Cheops) is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids in the Giza Pyramid Complex. Built over a 10- to 20-year period, it was finished around 2560 BC. Initially at 146.5 meters (481 feet), it was the tallest man-made structure in the world for more than 3,800 years. The other two pyramids are the Chephren and Menkaure pyramid. And then of course there is the equally famous Sphinx. A few miles further south, there are four other, but much smaller pyramids Now we turn east and head towards the Suez Canal If you look a bit closer, you can even see some of the Hendrik Nielsen AI ships in the canal Our next destination will be Aqaba and the Wadi Rum. But for this we first have to cross the Sinai Peninsula. In the distance you can see the Red Sea On the Eastern shore of the peninsula is the gulf of Aqaba, which is also the northern tip of the Red Sea Below us is Aqaba and the valley you see in the distance was the way Lawrence of Arabia had chosen to reach the town and take it over from the Turks in July 1917 We flew along the valley and have reached the Wadi Rum (in English: valley of light sand) Also known as the “Roman valley” it is cut into the sandstone and granite rock formations in southern Jordan. It is also the largest wadi in Jordan This time the photoscenery has a much higher resolution and looks quite close to the real world Our next highlight will be Petra, an archeological city that dates back with its first settlements to 9,000 BC. In the following centuries it became a big regional trading hub with over 20,000 inhabitants in its peak days during the first century AD. As many of the city’s more famous buildings were built into the rock formations, one cannot see that much of them from the air. The next two pictures should give you a better impression of Petra’s most famous building, the “Treasury” or “Al Khazneh” in Arabic It is an even more special place, when people light their candles in the evening. Around 600,000 tourists visit Petra annually After Petra we head further north to the Red Sea. At its northern tip we turn west again for Tel Aviv Above Tel Aviv we turn north to our final destination of today: Haifa Haifa Thanks for viewing and see you hopefully on our next leg, which will bring us to Cyprus
  12. I decided to play around Redding , CA, with some new cloud textures. I'm still getting the hang of this but some turned out quite realistic! I'm not a huge fan of the nuclear sun above the layers but I'll work that out!

  14. From Haifa we will head north into Lebanon, many years ago known as the Switzerland of the Middle East. Then we cross the eastern part of the Mediterranean Sea and reach Cyprus, where we plan a short stopover in Pafos. The next island to cross will be Rhodes, before we fly along the eastern shores of the Peloponnese peninsula on our way to today’s final stop: Athens. Lebanon has a great hinterland with a mountain range that extends almost the entire length of Lebanon, paralleling the Mediterranean coast for about 240 km (150 mi), with northern outliers going as far as Syria Their highest peak (not visible here) is “Qurnat as Sawda” (“Black Peak” in English), at 3,088 m (10,131 ft). Over Beirut (which was once known as the Paris of the Middle East) and its big airport, which is testament to its former popularity, but sees today far less traffic After a short hop over part of the Med. Sea we have reached the eastern portion of Cyprus Turning west brings us over Larnaca and its intern. airport The limestone cliffs of Cyprus are famous for their caves, some of them are not even known to the locals Our planned stopover in Pafos, which serves as a joint civil-military public airport After a short break we continue our flight westward, here we fly along the highest mountain of Rhodes. Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese islands of Greece in terms of land area and “Attavyros” is with 1,215 m the highest mountain Approaching the beautiful island Milos, also known as the “Island of Colors” thanks to its jewel-colored waters and its buildings, which are painted in vivid primary tones Finally we have reached the Peloponnese, a large mountainous body of land. It offers its many visitors some spectacular archeological sites like Olympia, Mycenae or Tirynth, but also Byzantine churches and superb old castles We had north to our destination Athens Athens intern. Airport Eleftherios-Venizelos comes into sight Many cruise ships wait here to pick up their passengers Thanks for viewing. The next three weeks I’ll be away from my PC, so the tour will continue in the second half of October

  17. After a couple of enjoyable days in Malta, we continue our journey. Our final destination for today was supposed to be Alexandria in Egypt, but there is apparently no freeware airport for that city that works in P3D v4, so we decided to conclude this leg a bit further south in Cairo instead. We could have taken the straight route above sea and along the coast, but that would have been a bit boring. That is why we will fly south instead, cross Tunesian airspace and some portions of the Sahara desert in order to go back into Algerian airspace, where we will reach the Tassili n'Ajjer mountain range. Taking off from Malta’s LMML, we make first a short tour of Valetta again. Over Tripolis, capital of Tunesia We have reached Tassili n'Ajjer’s western part. The mountain range gained world fame after the discovery of ancient rock art in the 1930s. Over the years, more than 15,000 petroglyphs and paintings were identified, as were a great number of archeological remains. But more spectacular is its eastern portion, where we are flying to now. Tassili n'Ajjer covers a massive area of Algeria, on the border of Libya, Niger and Mali. As these names imply, this is not one of the safest places to travel, but we have no intention to land in any of these countries, we just want to experience this area’s beauty from the air. But no photoscenery can give you an impression of how it really looks. Since 1982, Tassili n'Ajjer is a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its special cultural and physical significance. Flying on a north-easterly course again: sand, nothing but miles and miles of sand Below us one can spot the large marina of El Alamein Above Alexandria and the Nile area, which is recognizable by its much more fertile land. Meanwhile we have turned south and follow the Nile until we reach Cairo We have reached Cairo and prepare for landing. Above the plane you can see in the distance the Giza pyramid complex, which we will explore a bit more on our third leg of this flight. As you can see, this photoscenery doesn’t have a very high resolution and is best viewed at 6,000 ft and above. Reason is that it covers with the whole North African continent a huge area Oh, I forgot to mention...when we were landing, we ran on vapor 😏😏 See ya soon and thanks for viewing
  18. First flight in my new Bonanza. I've got no GPS, I'm flying the needles and it's mostly IMC on a short hop from Bremerton Natl PWT to Skagit KBVS in the Pacific NW. My routing was a radar vector onto V165 to ISLND, then from there I shot the NDB Ry 11 at KBVS with a circle to land to Ry 4. The whole thing was tricky due to a monster ssw wind (it was lovely aloft - had a ground speed of 202!!)... I had a crosswind for the entirety of the non precision approach. routing by ryan b, on Flickr Untitled-1 by ryan b, on Flickr Untitled-2 by ryan b, on Flickr Even without GPS the aircraft is well-equipped for IFR with dual nav/comm, ADF and DME.

Carenado Cessna S550 II Citation, Aerosoft Gibraltar, freeware photoscenery of Northern Africa and Southern Europe, EnvTex, EnvShade, P3D v4 After having arrived with the Curtiss in Gibraltar, I thought, it would be interesting to explore this area a bit more, but on a grander scale. So why not do a tour around the entire Mediterranean Sea. I have never done that. We take off in our trusted Citation S550 from Gibraltar. She is small enough for shorter airstrips and fast enough for longer journeys. Our first leg will lead us via Algier to Malta, where we will stop overnight. For the second leg, we will fly from Malta to Alexandria in Egypt. The third leg will first go south to Cairo and the Giza pyramid complex. From there we will head further south to Hurghada, a well-known Egyptian Red Sea holiday destination, for lunch, across the Red Sea to the Sinai Peninsula and then north to Jordan, where we’ll explore the Wadi Rum desert and try to locate the ancient city of Petra. From there we’ll fly further north-west into Cyprus and then east to Crete, where we’ll finish our third leg. On the fourth leg we’ll fly first to Athens and then along the Corinth Canal west to Sicily and Sardinia, where we’ll stay overnight at the military air base Decimomannu. The fifth leg will see us heading further north via Corsica to Monaco and then on to Marseille. Via Barcelona we will reach our next and final stop-over Mallorca, which is one of the Spanish Balearic Islands. Our sixth and last leg will bring us back via Alicante to Gibraltar. Should be fun. Let’s start our first leg. Total distance between Gibraltar and Malta are some 1,800 km or 970 nm. As we plan to fly away from the coast south into Morocco’s Atlas Mountains to see some of the wonderful mountain formations, we plan a stopover in Algier to refuel and have some authentic Algerian lunch. Off we go, bye bye Gibraltar. See you again in a couple of days We have reached again after a short hop the Northern coast of Morocco. Luckily the weather around here is usually fine The Atlas Mountain range. The colors are awesome Further into our flight we are back on the coast and have just crossed into Algerian airspace Approaching Algier’s Houari Boumediene Airport (ICAO:DAAG) Passing by the modern terminal buildings We are directed to the old part of the airport. I hope fuel and the food is good here Thanks to our local agent (without one you will be completely lost), we had no issues with refueling the plane and lunch was just fantastic. Next stop will be Malta Flying over Tunis, capital of Tunesia. On its Eastern side lies what was in ancient times one of the biggest enemies of the Roman Empire: Carthage and its Carthaginian general Hannibal. He is considered one of the greatest military commanders in history. One of his most famous achievements was at the outbreak of the “Second Punic War” (218 to 201 BC), when he marched an army, which included war elephants, from Iberia over the Pyrenees and the Alps into Italy Carthage was the capital of the Carthaginian civilization, on the eastern side of what is now known as the Lake of Tunis. Carthage was finally destroyed by the Romans in the “Third Punic War” in 146 BC, then re-developed as Roman Carthage, which became the major city of the Roman Empire in the province of Africa. Finally we have reached the Republic of Malta, this here is its smaller, westerly portion, an island called “Gozo” And here we approach the main island, called “Malta” Valetta is its capital and has, as you can see, a beautiful harbour It’s already a bit late, so no more sight-seeing today. We will reserve that for tomorrow Welcome to Malta, one of the world’s smallest and most densely populated countries This is the end of our first leg around the Mediterranean Sea. I hope to see you, when the journey continues

  23. Can anyone kindly inform me if Taxi2Gate's Hamad Internationl(OTBD) has been updated to v4? Likewise for KCMI from TropicalSim.? Have a few airports from both developers and want to know if they are now to be consigned to FSX,V2,etc trash can as I have not been able to find any information from their websites other than links to their respective Forums. Tried to install in v4 and they seemed to install okay buy are not showing up either in Addon Library or in the sim itself.
  24. Has never looked so go in P3d v4: Jose
  25. A touch and go at 11S then onwards to Port Angeles. I had a scenery issue at 11S.... no buildings maybe due to 4.3 update. And my prop on the cirrus looks a little odd from a direct side on view... Otherwise I love this paint job!
