    This Weeks Flight on 20th October 2021 at 8.30pm AEDT is a flight in Alaska from Unalakleet (PAUN) to Nome (PAOM). Some may be familiar with a TV series “Flying Wild Alaska” which was shown on Discovery Channel nearly ten years ago and featured the Tweto family who used to operate out of Unalakleet. We will be doing some T&G's at fields that were serviced by Era Alaska. If simulation allows try winter conditions. Flight suggested by Dan McKee YMA555 Scenery Suggested: Due to the plethora of flight sim programs now in use scenery is left to the discretion of each pilot. However the author uses MSFS2020 for these flights and provides links to MSFS scenery hereunder. Most addon airfields are quite small downloads. Also all scenery so far that has not been verified for updates do work fine in latest update.

    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.

    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 .

    This Weeks Flight on 23rd June 2021 finds us in the Cormoros Islands which lay off the east coast of Mozambique north of Madagascar. We will depart from Prince Said Ibraham Int'l FMCH which lies on the northern island of Grand Comore and we will fly past the active volcano Karthala which last erupted in 2006. You will need to climb to approx 9,000ft to view the large caldera at the summit. The challenge is to climb fast enough to arrive at the summit. It is recommended to do the climb along the west coast then turn east over the summit and then resume flight plan to Bandaressalam FMCI on the island of Moheli and on to Ouani FMCV on the island of Anjouan and on to our final destination at Dzaoudzi FMCZ on the island of Mayotte . Technically the island of Mayotte is not part of the Union of the Comoros and the island remains controversialy part of France despite objections at the United Nations where France uses it's power of veto to prevent a veto by the UN.
