    This Weeks Flight on 15th July 2020 finds us in the Copper Canyon, Mexico. Copper Canyon, in northern Mexico, is a series of massive canyons in the Sierra Madre Occidental mountains. Popular for hiking, it gets its name from the copper-green hue of the canyon walls. The famous Chepe (Ferrocarril Barrancas del Cobre) train connects the region via over 80 tunnels and nearly 40 bridges. We will basically follow the rail line from Creel to Temoris (NB: The rail line is very windy and therefore the flight route is only indicative). We then leave the rail line and fly across many canyons finally returning to Creel via northern part of the Rio San Ignacio canyon. Flight suggested by Dan McKee YMA555 Scenery Required: https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/42499-copper-canyon/ Only 33MB Ensure to unzip to folder name "Copper Canyon" and that folder goes into your Custom Scenery folder. If unzip gives you two separate files Texture and Earth nav data, then create folder named Copper Canyon and place those two folders inside and then copy Copper Canyon to Custom Scenery. As usual please remember to rebuild your data bases after adding new scenery airports i.e. FSTramp, LNM, PlanG etc Mesh Recommended: http://www.alpilotx.net/downloads/x-plane-11-hd-mesh-scenery-v4/ Choose Square/Tile +20-110 (1.8GB) Aircraft Suggested: Robin DR40 or similar 120kias Comms: Unicom 122.80 unless instructed by ATC Flight Details: LINK Weather: Real time weather, fair weather if conditions are not suitable.

  10. Just advising that there has been a change to the flight plan for above flight in case anyone has already setup for the flight. Some additional scenery suggested and slight change to route and destination. And if you have not read the event details it should be quite scenic with views of Matterhorn, Schilthorn, Jungfrau, Monch and Eiger mountains and high observatories plus some interesting airports. Cheers Dan

    This Weeks Flight on 1st July 2020 takes us to Papua (Irian Jaya Indonesia) to do some Papua bush flying with some very difficult airfields. These airfields will definitely separate the men from the boys!! Flight suggested by Col Williams YMA123 The flight departs from Nabire on the north coast and destination is Tsinga Mulu. Scenery highly recommended: Susi Air Scenery Papua and East Timor has 30 airfields each as a separate install. Just install the airfields relevant to this flight or the lot. Total download is only 7MB The following airfields can only be landed in one direction and therefore full stops will be required. Pogapa (WW68) Land Rwy 14 Depart Rwy 32 Beoga (WX37) Land Rwy 16 Depart Rwy 34 T&G at Bilai at pilot discretion as is only 1nm from Pogapa (WW68) but can be landed either direction and is not difficult. Aircraft: STOL is necessary i.e. Cessna Caravan, Twotter, PC-6 Link to Susi PC6T CSL Link to Susi PC6 Livery Comms: Unicom 122.80 unless instructed by ATC Flight Details: LINK Distance: Approx 155nm Weather: Real time weather, fair weather if conditions are not suitable.

    YOU WILL NOTICE THAT WE NOW HAVE A HEADER FOR THESE FLIGHTS. A BIG THANKYOU TO BLAIR SHADDOCK, MARKETING. This Weeks Flight on 24th June 2020 finds us in Switzerland where we will fly thru the Alps. We will depart Sion (LSGS) and fly over famous mountains include Matterhorn, Jungfrau and Eiger and finally arriving at Payerne. The mountains are often fogged in so for a scenic flight clear your weather if it is fogged in. Flight suggested by Dan McKee YMA555 Scenery Suggested: Alpilot UHD Europe Alps Suisse VFR 8.0 (onky 72MB and will definitely enhance the scenery with observatories on peaks etc.) Aircraft Suggested: Slow sight seeing type 120kias that can also climb i.e. PC-6, Maule etc however there is no need to fly over the mountains as they are best seen from lower altitude. Comms: Unicom 122.80 unless instructed by ATC Flight Details: LINK Weather: Real time weather, fair weather if conditions are not suitable. Flight Plan:(LSGS-LSMP)< Just click on this link for Flight Plan for FSX, P3D and XP11

    This Weeks Flight on 17th June 2020 is something different and requires fast hands-on flying at very low altitude. We find ourselves in Wales (no, not Jonah), Wales UK. Anyway, the RAF does some of it's low altitude flying here called “Mach Loops”. We depart RAF Valley (EGOV) and fly approx. 45nm to the circuit which itself is about 34nm in circumference. It is suggested to do a practise run at first at about 200 kias and then do a 2nd circuit as fast as you can survive. If you survive return to RAF Valley (EGOV). NB: Wpt 12 is a very tight turn to the right (002*) Flight suggested by Dan McKee YMA555 Scenery Suggested: Orbx GB TE South is excellent for XP11 NB: The plan starts in Orbx TE Central (which is also recommended) however the scenery for the loop is part of Orbx South RAF Valley EGOV required even if you have Orbx GB above because Orbx does not have a 3D version. Aircraft Suggested: You can use any fast aircraft you choose 200kias -300kias or faster if you dare. The following are suggestions: Whatever aircraft you choose, make sure you enter the correct Multi-player ICAO when logging into Vatsim. Cirrus SF-50 is a default Laminar and is a default CSL in Bluebell. TB Epsilon (Socata) military trainer use CSL for Tucano in Bluebell with ICAO TUCA Eurofighter Fairly small download and use CSL in Bluebell with ICAO EUFI F35a Fairly small download however no CSL so just use ICAO EUFI (will show a Eurofighter) Tutor 115E (Grob) a current RAF military trainer 65MB download and has existing CSL in Bluebell use ICAO G115 Comms: Unicom 122.80 unless instructed by ATC Flight Details: LINK Suggested Altitude: Refer flight Plan Link Weather: Real time weather, fair weather if conditions are not suitable.
