  1. Close to Courchevel is the new by Orbx modelled Altiport Méribel(LFKX) a fine addition for Leisure VFR flights in the French Alps: Oeps! Braked to early once on the runway and flipped over to the nose, luckely not injuried but my wallet will suffer
  2. Welcome to Sankt Johann Airport Tirol! An all Austrian-affair is on the cards with our next scenery, Sankt Johann Airport, which is located just a stone's throw away from the German border and a similarly short distance from another of our products: Zell am See is only a 35 km jaunt as the crow [simmer] flies. Featuring just a single asphalt strip along with two grass ones, Sankt Johann's airport is the epitome of a general aviation field and perfect for gaining experience in the mountains. Gaya has your local flying sorted as well, because as mentioned the beautiful ski town of Zell am See is just around the corner. Enjoy these screenshots fresh from the latest development version. Coming soon to MSFS!
  3. Welcome to the Swiss Alps. Developed by Andreas Hegi, author of LSPN Triengen Airport, get ready to explore another challenging airport in the Swiss Alps. As a popular ski resort during the winter season, Samedan Airport (LSZS) sees a vast number of general aviation traffic and private corporate jets frequent the beautiful airport. Situated in the heart of the Engadin valley, expect unsettled winds, low-visibility and plenty of turbulence. Even the most experienced of pilots will find landing at the 5,600ft above sea-level airport tough. Samedan Airport features the same level of detail you come to expect from our airport collection. The area closest to the airport features 30cm per pixel coverage with 60cm coverage in the nearby surrounding area. Immersive 3D snow piles (in P3D only) will form during the winter seasons and you can also enjoy dynamic lighting emitting a soft white glow on the apron floor. Whether you’re exploring the region in a smaller aircraft or taking on the challenge of landing an A319 (which has happened in real-life), you will also be able to spot various custom hotels, churches and more from the villages of Samedan and St. Moritz. This unique blend of high-altitude, scenic mountains and a tough approach means that Samedan Airport is the perfect get-away from the usual busy international airports for those looking for something more exciting to try. Do you dare take on the challenge of approaching Samedan Airport? FEATURES Incredibly detailed, high definition rendition of Samedan Airport and surrounds Scenic mountain landscape with glaciers, lakes and rivers all make stunning visual approaches Realistic HD textures created from on-site photography to provide the most immersive experience possible Visually pleasing: 30cm per pixel coverage in the closer airport area, 60cm in the surrounding area Includes the villages of Samedan and St. Moritz with many custom hotels and churches - perfect for the VFR fliers Thousands of hand placed autogen trees and buildings to make the area feel alive 3D snow piles in winter (only P3D version) Seasonal variations Bonus helipad: Hospital Oberengadin Dynamic night lighting (only P3D v4) By veteran developer Andreas Hegi, author of the incredible LSPN Triengen Airport Developed for P3D & FSX, compatible with Global Base, OpenLC Europe & Vector COVERAGE MAP Stay tuned for more info and previews!
  4. Welcome to a five part series of hauling cargo around the northern hemisphere. And by "northern", I mean northern! Today's post will cover the first leg from OTHH to EBLG. It's a hot day in Doha - as always! And it's a very steep ladder to the cockpit... Thankfully the caterers left some fresh, cool water in the galley. Our freight of the day is about to be loaded into our plane. Don't want to know where they get the water for the golf course from! Our SID involves a fair bit of low flying. Almost soaring above the Persian Gulf. Hey controllers, are you sleeping? A near miss at 29,000ft. Uff. After the expertly handled shock , the landscape of Iran is greeting us. Surprisingly green and surprisingly acceptable. Imagine this with OpenLC! Hours later, it has traffic over the Alps. Stewart? I leave the next ones without any comment. Into the setting sun, we leave Stewarts home. The FO is the pilot flying this evening. It's getting dark and quite bumpy over Belgium! The lights of Liège and surroundings as we dive through the clouds. A particularly dark evening in eastern Belgium. Turning around and approaching along the Meuse/Maas river that runs through Liège/Lüttich. On final. Touchdown! In the moment of touchdown, snowfall starts and ends shortly after. That's what they call spring! That's it for today chaps, thank you for coming along. Cheers Lars
  5. Hello again :-) Today we go into the mountains. Im starting this planned series with "The Alps". Sadly i only use standard mesh, and not even that one i can set to max. Still, its so amazing imo, i hope you like it same as i do. I hope its ok that i start with some little Intro pics. It may start a bit boring but the good one come :-) The first non-flatlands sightings There they come Getting a bit more hilly Bye bye Alps Hello Spain
  6. The immersion of the Orbx LC and regions keeps blowing my mind. With the release of LOWI I went in on Europe LC and can't get enough of the Alps now. Here are a few pics of ferrying a clients PA46 from Innsbruck LOWI to Chambery LFLB. Still dialing in the GTX1080 to make the VC text more readable. Enjoy
  7. The versatile Alps covers different countries. One of them is northern Italy and the Dolomites are in my opinion the most spectacular around. I grabbed the Cessna 310 out of my hangar to visit this nice corner (next to FTX Global is the scenery enhanced by another artwork from Frank Dainese):
  8. Out of his several outstanding mountain-sceneries, I hereby post some shots that confirmes the quality that Frank Dainese offer us(apart from his latest 'Yosemite'): These are from the Matterhorn in the Alps at the Suisse-Italian border: Another very nice made area in Switserland is the trio Eiger-Monch-Jungfrau combined with the Alps largest Glacier -> The Aletsch-gletscher:
