Great "Bush Flyers" Flight

I thought I would just mention this great little flight I just took, as many of you other GA pilots might like to try it and enjoy it as much as I just did.

Set your simulator to mid-day, winter with clouds at 8,000 and medium visibility. You will need an amphibious aircraft, the default Cessna Caravan is fine, as part of this trip requires landing on water.

You donít need any addon scenery, as the default mesh and textures round here are awesome, but I suggest using VOZ ( www.vistaoz.org ) as it enhances your flight environment world wide.

Start at Orca Island (KORS) take off, and head east towards the Washington Mainland, passing over the south of Bellingham City (which will be to your left) continue into the hills eastwards, as you pass over Acme Field and see a large snow capped mountain directly in front of you. Circle the mountain until you are right at the top, and admire the view below, before starting your descent to the North over the Canadian border. Aim for Chilliwack (CYCW) and as you approach it from the south, continue North over the river, in between two hills to an inland lake where you can land and taxi over to the island in the middle for a rest.

Now take back off, and find your own path back towards the USA border to Bellingham, then Orca Island heading at about 187 degrees and land back where you started.

This flight took me about 1 hour and 25 minutes in my Maule at an average speed of 140 kias.

If you enjoy it, take some screenshots and post them here Wink

That route I described above is really only half of the journy, because after I posted this thread, I went back to Orca Bay and took off again, heading west this time untill I reached the Pacific Ocean. You guys should try it too, there are lots more islands and mountains and quite a few landable lakes on the peninsular above Peguot Sound (I don't think that is spelt right) which make a great adventure Cool
