best airports in FSX

Postby Drewdel » Sat Mar 21, 2009 9:14 am

Hi all

Anyone have suggestions for interesting airfields to fly GA aircraft into? Although I prefer flying in SA, im a bit bored with the barren strips that represent most small airfields in SA.

Anyone been exploring FSX?

Hi I am doing a circumnavigation of the world using samall aircraft. I use craft such as 172, 58 (mostly) 350, learjet45 to do all my trips. I started in Cape Town and head up the West coast of Africa. I have done over 2000 hours of flying and I am in Scotland at present. Here is my log of my flights, I have to just get it updated from my sim computer, which I will add. A few of the airports were a nice challange as they are busy ports and I was sent on a go around by the ATC on many occasions.

Impressive flight fullwings - is that hand flying or letting Otto do some of the work?

FS included a few spots where they pumped up the scenery a little more than usual. This can be found under the Scenery section in the startup screen (way from my FS PC now, so sorry that I can't be more specific). One of these is of course St Maarten - some ships, birds etc. St Barth is useless in FS and nowhere near realistic (pity...).

There is a mixture of flying a lot of hand real time and when I needed a bit of a rest I would switch to AP. I have to say that it can become tiring but also exciting with some of the great scenary at certain places. Flying through the second half of the USA and Canada through winter where it is just winter white is where bordom can set in but with all the traffic ATC kept one alert.
