I took the stunning Nemeth Sikorsky S-76 for a short hop around the beautifully picturesque new Tioman Island scenery by PILOT'S. If you like tropical island scenery and a very challenging approach, this is a must have! The weather was pretty gloomy on the way out to the offshore island heliport, cleared up though for the journey back. There was even a moving lizard on the tarmac when I returned! Tioman is about 100 miles north of Singapore and is known for excellent scuba diving. The airport is considered to have one of the most dangerous approaches in the world, due to often adverse tropical weather conditions and the approach not offering any go-around because of the high terrain surrounding the immediate vicinity of the runway.
It's been a while since I fired up P3Dv4, I took a short flight on Monday from Zurich Kloten (LSZH) to the very interesting new Almeria Airport (LEAM) in Spain with the awesome Xtreme Prototypes Learjet 25D. Due to it's coastal proximity, LEAM is sure to offer any skilled pilot a real challenge, there were pretty strong 25 kt gusts on my arrival! The Reality XP GTN 750 and 650 did a great job in depicting the surrounding high terrain, it really is a combo that works superbly in the Lear 25D. For those that own the GTN 750, Almeria Airport offers full RNAV (GNSS) approaches with LNAV / VNAV guidance for both RWY 05 and RWY 25!
Just the one shot taking off in the Citation with PILOT'S FS Global Real Weather doing a great job in depicting the low clouds with very interesting lighting. It's definitely a great advantage having a weather engine that works with both P3Dv4 and XP11!
Milviz has been very busy with the King Air 350i for quite some time. Every now and then I come across a post here at AVSIM that illustrates a complete lack of understanding just how much effort and energy is put into crafting a hardcore aircraft for FSX/P3D, one that is simulated with high accuracy, with very high fidelity, both visually and as far as system depth is concerned. The same goes for scenery, there is run-of-the-mill scenery and then there is scenery like PILOT'S Almeria Airport (LEAM), highly detailed, immensely immersive. The screenshots below are taken from a dawn departure this morning out of Almeria Airport on a test flight with the latest Milviz King Air 350i Beta.
