    This Weeks Flight on 11th November 2020 finds us in the Channel Islands, UK doing a tour of the islands as well as encroaching into France. Flight based on a suggestion by David Grant (Vatsim United Kingdom) If "channel control" is on they might control you for the entire flight. London West might also cover the area but is rarely online. Scenery Suggested: MSFS2020 Channel Islands and Airports It is to be noted that each individual airfield folder is copied to the Community folder (that is six separate folders) unless you use the MSFS Addons Linker utility in which you will activate each folder. X-Plane 11 EGJJ Jersey Airport 1.0.0 EGJB Guernsey Airport 1.0.0 EGJA Alderney Airport 1.0.0 Most X-Plane 11 flights will also benefit from improved mesh which can be obtained from https://www.alpilotx.net/ There is HD and UHD available depending on region.

Each sim platform has it's own points of interest i.e. MSFS has a large castle on Brecqhou Island just off Sark (refer wpt 02) however this castle and it's fictitious landing strip is only in MSFS. Brecqhou has had a 150m grass airstrip fitted - ZEGBQ - to irritate its evil owners by landing on their lawn.

    This Weeks Flight on 4th November 2020 finds us in Japan continuing a scenic tour. This flight includes Hashima Island a fortress island, City of Nagasaki where the 2nd atomic bomb was dropped and a few famous bridges, City of Fukuoka arriving in Ashiya. Scenery Suggested: With the plethora of simulation platforms now being flown it has become tedious to make scenery recommendations so scenery is left to the choice of each pilot. However in the case of Japan and MSFS2020 it recommended to download scenery for City of Nagasaki and City of Fukuoka from https://flightsim.to/ . Other MSFS2020 scenery is part of the standard package. Most flights in X-plane 11 will also benefit from improved mesh which can be obtained from https://www.alpilotx.net/ There is HD and UHD available depending on region.

A feature of this flight is using the Manchester Low Level Corridor on approach to and departure from Manchester Barton (EGCB). It's not difficult at all and in this flight we enter the corridor at Oulton Park (wpt1 on plan). Maximum altitude through corridor is 1,300ft. Flight based on a suggestion by David Grant (Vatsim United Kingdom) Reference to the following links will assist the procedure for flying through the corridor. It is not difficult at all just remain at or below 1,300ft from Oulton Park to Manchester Barton and note, do not confuse Manchester Barton with Manchester International (EGCC).

Flight based on a suggestion by BartDuy (Orbx Forum Member) Take off in the early morning, heading south, towards Jasper along the Blue Lake and Jasper Lake. Touch and Go at Jasper CYJA at pilot discretion. Turn southeast and head into the mountains, following the valley and climbing to 6,500ft. Use the Athabasca pass (Wpt 13) to cross the mountains and slowly descend back to 5,000ft. Keep following the valley until you reach Kimbasket Lake. Cross the lake heading west until you meet the Columbia River. Follow the river descending even lower, to take in the beautiful landscape. Negotiate the twists and turns until you reach Revelstoke Lake. Head towards the dam and the end. A few more turns and Revelstoke Airport is directly in front. Flightplan provided, allows for full autopilot flight allowing you to enjoy the scenery along the way.
