    In the words of Monty Python..”and now for something completely different”. This weeks flight 21st July 2021 takes us on a tour of numerous lighthouses off the south coast of Finland. The flight needs to be flown low albeit at approx. 150kias. There is adequate scenery for both X-Plane and MSFS2020 so please refer to links hereunder. We depart from Mariehamn (EFMA) on the Finnish autonomous territory on the island of Aland and fly over some lighthouses with a T&G at Hanko (EFHN) on the edge of the mainland. From there we continue past more lighthouses (I know, MFL) to the capital Helsinki where the flight finishes (pun intended) at the main Helsinki GA Airfield of Malmi (EFHF). Flight suggested by Dan McKee YMA555 Scenery Suggested: This is really more than a suggestion to get the most out of this flight otherwise you will see a lot of water. They are not large downloads. X-Plane 11 Finnish Lighthouses 1.0.0 MSFS2020 Finnish South Coast Lighthouses Both simulators also have scenery for airports involved so I leave it up to individuals to locate as desired. Aircraft Suggested: Slow and low type .

    The author has been requested to formulate flights following the route of the Tour de France Bicycle race however the race comprises some 18+ stages which are too many to fly. Rather the author will select a few stages that may comprise other interesting scenery (depending on your simulation program). This Weeks Flight on 14th July 2021 includes stage 13 of the Tour de France and will include some scenery highlights depending upon simulator being used.. The plan starts at Nimes (LFTW) and then south to Arles overflying the famous Roman Amphitheatre in the middle of town. The flight will fly back to the city of Nimes to overfly another Roman Amphitheatre and then join the actual starting point for Tour de France on outskirts of Nimes. The flight concludes at Salvaza (LFMK) which is the airport servicing Carcassone a large medieval fortified city. It will be well worth downloading Carcassone scenery for MSFS2020 and X-Plane 11. The flight plan is general and does not follow every twist and turn so try and fly it manually. Flight suggested by Dan McKee YMA555 Scenery Suggested: X-Plane 11 LFMK includes the old city MSFS2020 The Old City (not the airport) This file has numerous french airports including LFMK Aircraft Suggested: Slow and low type .
