By DavidR.You are renting a C172 for your stay in Western Australia. Before you are entrusted with the plane for the weekend, you need to complete a short checkride with the friendly rental guy (a pom). Take a flight down to Beverley, enjoying some great OZx and FTX airfields and scenery.
By DavidR.You're based at Cooktown and you need to pick up a tourist (a grumpy pom) down at Weary Bay. He's been let down by another air taxi and the weather is awful today, so best get down to Weary as soon as possible to collect him before he gets too wet and miserable!
By DavidR.Set in FTX AU Gold: Rockhampton YBRK - Emu Park YEMP - Great Keppel Island YGKL
......you've had a couple of nice easy warm ups, so this one will contain more challenge!
"You are Mike Hall, born and raised in Melbourne but as a pilot for hire, your work has taken you to Central Queensland, flying a fleet of old Piper Cubs and American Champ Decathlons out of Rockhampton. Today, you're doing a familiarization flight in a Cub, with Dave in the back. Dave's a pom, born in Newcastle, England but has been flying in Oz for 5 years. In your new job, you'll be ferrying a lot of the more adventurous tourists and beachseekers over to Great Keppel Island, so Dave is taking you along today to familiarise yourself with the VFR route of flight. You'll be stopping off at Emu Park on the way, to pick up a new cable for the cub's aileron mechanism, which is due for replacement".
This mission is set to be flown with the default FSX Cub, but I would recommend 'enabling changes to missions' in FSX and flying it with the RealAir Decathlon/Scout, if you own these...
Warning: No flight plan, no GPS, no FS Planner for this one - just Mk 1 eyeball and VFR navigation using the ground...... softies need not apply!
By TreeTopsHaving just applied for a job with the local aerial application company, you are required to spray a nearby farmer’s field.
Take the AgTruck over and see if you can impress him with your skills.
He wasn’t very happy with the last pilot. Said he was all over the place; couldn’t hold a steady height, speed or direction.
Hopefully you will do better.
Requirements : Orbx FTX New Zealand North Island Alabeo C188B AgTruck
By FroggyThunderstorm lightnings had set many fires around 17 nm south east of Williams lake, near Springhouse Airpark CAQ4. Before getting fires out as first attacker, you had to transport a vinyl water tank from CYXS to Quesnel airport CYQZ & from there transport hoses to the fires site. A Bambi bucket was waiting for you at CAQ4 Springhouse Airpark. You had to put out all fires before returning to base. A mission separating men’s from children’s. So far, for a Wildfire pilot like you it must be a formality.
A practice mission to familiurize yourself whit Bambi Bucket OPS was include.
Note: You must know how to fly the Dodosim 206b & be comfortable whit acceleration hoist & sling functions.
By TreeTopsA local farmer has contracted you to spray his field to prevent weeds from growing.
Complete a spraying job north east of West Wind and finish at Riverside.

By markd53Royal Flying Doctor Rescue Mission, v1.0 5/09/2015
(Created with Flight1 Software’s Instant Mission Maker)
This is a 4-part rescue mission, which should take you around 2 hours to complete.
A bush walker has been injured and is awaiting rescue from a lodge in Wilpena Pound, South Australia.
As Broken Hill is the nearest RFDS base, you have to fly there to pick up the injured party and take them to Adelaide Airport (YPAD) for delivery to hospital.
As the location is remote, you will have to first fly to Wilpena Pound airfield and change to a helicopter to fly there.
