  1. Hello everyone, I want to plan a long flight to explore the western US with BlueSkyScenery, and I wanted to know if you had any ideas? I will be flying this in the A2A Cherokee, and hope to fly VFR by mainly following roads. The scenery coverage is: [alignright][/alignright] My current plan is to fly from Montana to Arizona through Wyoming and Idaho with each leg of the journey approximately 200-300 miles. Do you have any good places to fly, or interesting scenery to check out? Thanks for your ideas!
  2. Hi All! Well - I've been lurking around here for an awful long time! Far longer than the 'joined date' over to the left suggests. Lets just say I've got happy memories of the Rambow/Chaffin/Visser R4D and still pine for the wonderful Falcon 50 CAEA by Yannick Lavigne, Fred Banting and Rob Young... (nostalgic yet?) Anyway, times move on and I've enjoyed all sorts of wonderful add-ons: most memorably FSD's old Commander 115, the ground-breaking RealAir SF-260 and more recently, the fantastic Majestic Software Q400. Most of these, I probably wouldn't have come across without the help of Avsim, so I figured it's about time I said a (very, very) belated 'thanks' to Tom and everyone else at Avsim for this great site. Perhaps the greatest bit of freeware there is! However, it's the wonderful Piper Cherokee by A2A Simulations which finally inspired me to crawl out from under my rock! I've truly connected with this little aircraft. I'm not sure whether it's because the product is so immersive or if it's due to the characteristics of the real 1960s PA-28 the add-on is based upon. Either way, it feels like my proper little aeroplane! :smile: I reckon the Cherokee really just looks the part too. I guess this says an awful lot for the genius of Karl Bergey, Fred Weick and John Thorp who designed the original PA-28 (though the modellers at A2A have done a wonderful job as well!) In fact, I was so taken with its looks that I decided to try my hand at some repainting following the example of talented individuals here like Ron Attwood and Tim Scharnhop. So rather than turn up at the party late and empty handed, I've just uploaded my first repaint to the Avsim library: http://library.avsim.net/search.php?SearchTerm=Piper+PA-28+Cherokee+%28G-AVSE%29&CatID=root&Go=Search I know I'm not really supposed to post screenshots here, but hopefully one won't hurt... I've tried my hand at repainting a few other liveries for the Cherokee too. I plan to upload these to the library as well, but will probably tinker with them a little beforehand. in the meantime there are download links and some more screenshots in threads like this one at the A2A forums: http://a2asimulations.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=115&t=41235#p310520 All the best, Nick P.S. Thanks also to the Avsim file library guys for dealing helpfully and patiently with my dufferish attempt at uploading my first file!
  3. I did a quick search around this forum and didn't see anyone bring up the fact that the A2A Piper Cherokee has been in beta testing since the beginning of March. See this post on their forums. I must say, after buying their 172 and seeing how it has progressed with the past updates, the Cherokee will be an instant buy for me. They posted this photo of the cockpit around Christmas time. It looks great!
  4. After downloading the entirety of BlueSky photoscenery, it's time to start exploring! Based on the recommendation of another user, I started by flying from KCNY to KBCE. I loaded the Cherokee, this time equipped with all of the Knots2U speed mods, with a full load of 4 people and half a tank of 100LL. After takeoff, we track the Hanksville VOR to the southwest. There were some truly amazing sites to be seen here. The following is definitely one of my favorites: The speeds mods took some getting used to, as the power settings that I was used to could easily place the airspeed into the yellow band. Additionally, thanks to ASN, there was a great deal of turbulence coming off the ridges. It was a very bumpy flight. I soon found myself face to face with a mountain ridge and was forced to fly south to avoid it. This airplane is not equipped with supplemental oxygen, so there was no way to fly above it safely. About an hour and a half later, it was time to land. The high altitude of Utah makes flying here very interesting. The field altitude here is 7500 ft. And there you have it! After this flight, I cannot recommend the free BlueSky photoscenery enough. It can take a while to download (the entire package is about 225gb!), but a smaller region such as southern Utah as shown here is quite reasonable. The A2A Cherokee and ASN were also used in these screen shots.
  5. Just one screenshot today. I was flying the Cherokee into a randomly chosen private airstrip, only to discover that it doesn't exist in the simulator! The landing was a little hair raising. For those one want to find it, it is 2MT1.
  6. Hi all - After lurking on these forums for longer than I'm prepared to admit, :wink: I finally got round to making my first post (http://forum.avsim.net/topic/450133-my-love-affair-with-a-cherokee/) in which I nattered on nostalgically for a bit and declared my love for the A2A Cherokee. Though I'd follow up with some screenshots of repaints for my baby which I'm gradually uploading to the Avsim library (though they've been on A2A's forums for a bit)... G-AVSE, the first repaint I attempted and based on a real UK-based PA28-180C N5809W - the real example is very smart and registered in California. This one's cheating a bit, as it's based on a 235B model based in Oz. A bit more cheating going on here, as this Austrian repaint is based on an Archer II. N38GH is a proper real-world PA28-180C however, based in Florida. G-AVSF, another real world 1960s Cherokee with a paint job which reminds me of the splendid 'raspberry ripple' livery worn by the RAF's RAE/ETPS. Another one in striking colours - from Pennsylvania this time. G-SIXT, a rather interesting commemorative paint scheme found on a real-world Warrior II. It's painted in the colours of BOAC on one side... ...And BEA on the other! Somewhat retro colours on this one too. And finally, G-AVOZ, quite a grown-up looking real-world PA28-180C, also based in the UK. I've been experimenting a little bit with panel repaints too, but this shade of brown won't be to everyone's taste I'm sure! Should all make it to the Avsim library eventually... All the best! Nick :smile:
  7. Hello everyone, I've been wanting this plane in my collection for a while now, N8308L, it was my training aircraft for a while and was my favorite color to this aircraft. (Cant post picture due to copyright issues, just look up N8308L on google) I've been learning how to do reprints myself, but I'm not good enough to get this plane done correctly. Anyways, thanks to anyone who replies!
  8. Hello, I was Hoping someone could make a livery of this aircraft ... This was the very first plane I ever flew, a Piper Archer II, and I hope someone could make a repaint of it (On Carenado's Archer II would be the best), If you need more pictures of the plane just look up N8346H on google. I would really love this plane in my Colection. Thanks to anyone who replies.
  9. After a few months off from flight sim, its time to get back into things. I have a great trip planned for the next few flights. Here is leg 1 of the Great Cherokee Adventure. (I used the A2A Cherokee, BlueSky photoscenery, ASN, and REX Essentials Plus. Sectionals courtesy of Skyvector) We start our flight in Montana at Laurel 6S8 just outside of Billings. Flight navigation is accomplished by hard IFR - I follow roads. Just in case we get lost, we have the Billings VOR. Before long, the nice farm land below turns to mountains. Somehow the road still goes here. Must be some drive. The sun begins to set as we come up on the airport. We spot the airport. Luckinbill WY06 is a narrow, unpaved private airport. Should be fun, don't you think? We carefully fly our pattern, keeping a watchful eye on the rising terrain. These narrow strips always seem to come up fast. Made it! Doesn't seem to be much here. I guess we will be camping out tonight! Thanks for viewing!
