Alright i'll put one together tonight after ive finished my work. Really great value in this sale. For $43.60 I got NZSI and NRM, altogether over 700,000 km sq of new scenery, and as a bonus I got 2 freeware airports in NRM for meself! Clem also got me a DVD of Concrete Muni in PNW, which also includes Israel's Farm!

This sale is awesome, such a large amount of scenery for so little money.

Anyway, i'll devise a flight plan, and i'll try and get FSX reinstalled by Friday lol.

The Concrete DVD is an early birthday present Misha! I'll see if I can make this flight, I've missed out on so many!

I've devised a flight plan guys.

Route 1: NZLX Alexandra-NZCS Cromwell Racecourse-NZQN Queenstown Intl-NZGY Glenorchy-NZMF Milford Sound. Total distance 95nm

Route 2: NZWF Wanaka-NZCS Cromwell Racecourse-NZQN Queenstown Intl-NZGY Glenorchy-NZMF Milford Sound. Total distance 98nm

Lets all try and meet up at Queenstown, but we won't wait too long, any slowcoaches will be left behind!

Once we're all there, take off one by one. And please follow the route in the photo below, if you take any shortcuts you will get at Milford Sound too soon and you will get bored!

Take a look at the flight plan below.

A closer look at the inland approach we are taking into Milford Sound. Don't just go straight over the mountains, it takes the fun out of it!

Here is one part of the approach where you have to be careful. The differences in elevation when coming over this ridge are pretty big. Use the elevation info near the ridge to work out when you're gonna start to climb over it. You may need to circle around the sound to lose altitude since the approach after you clear the ridge is steep!

So there. I know the inland approach into NZMF is dangerous and wouldn't be done in RL, but come on, take your best performing bush plane and have some fun with this approach!

Agree, I've done most of the route before. It is great fun.

Now if you really want a challenge, overfly Milford Sound & land at T004 Quinton. Now that IS a challenge.

Bruce I was thinking if we land at Milford Sound too early we can continue down the valley to Quinton

I'd love to but the order has not been processed yet, even though I have definitely paid it! Its been almost fifty or so days since I ordered and paid for it!!!

Then I sent a support ticket to FSS, but no-one has answered.

Don't stress, Hendo will just have to fit the short field kit to his NGX!

Just remember guys, no C90B's in this session, or Caravans.

I might break out the P40 sitting in the hanger at Wanaka.
