  1. We are delighted to announce our first all-new airport product for Microsoft Flight Simulator - Bryce Canyon Airport! Acclaimed developer Ken Hall brings his developing flair to this historic airfield, located in the dramatic canyon hinterlands of Southern Utah. Serving the famous national park of the same name, Bryce Canyon is a high-altitude airport that hosts GA and corporate flights from across the United States. The airport is perfectly situated for exploring many of the Parks of the southwest; beyond Bryce Canyon National Park itself, Zion, Grand Staircase, Arches, Monument Valley and the north rim of the Grand Canyon are just short flights away. Whilst located halfway between Vegas and Salt Lake City, Bryce Canyon is also perfect to pair with other well-known aviation destinations nearby, including Boulder City, Telluride, Sedona, and the new airport at St George. Ken has brought his famous eye for detail to this new airfield; all buildings have been perfectly recreated in complete UHD detail. Careful implementation of PBR and normal mapping brings out the best of the new sim engine, whilst custom hand-edited aerial imagery brings a considerable improvement to the ground colouring and detail over the default bing imagery. As a historic airfield with ties to the early days of air travel, the main hangar is a famous landmark of the area - you may even note the rudimentary navigation arrow painted on the roof, showing the way for pioneering aviators flying to Salt Lake City! Coming to Microsoft Flight Simulator very soon, Bryce Canyon will be available through OrbxDirect and Microsoft FlightSim Marketplace. This is the first of several airport projects we have in development for this scenic corner of the US; be sure to keep an eye on our social media and forums over the coming week for more details and information. Enjoy!
  2. Big job flying a bunch of cargo up to the village of Woitape. This was going to be a two plane shuttle and I was going to flying the big crate in P2-KSM while the rest was being flown up in P2-KSI. The flight started just before the crack of dawn trying to get up there before the heat of the day added to the planes performance. On the ground it was already 80F and Im sure there was plenty of low clouds and fog up in the valleys yet to burn off. Found an opening after circling the field and made a nice slow approach into land. KSI was already on the ground and starting to unload the plane. A MAF crew was also there helping coordinate the delivery. Attached is the Google Earth file for the flight from the Twin Otter Flight Recorder. aypy wtp.kml

  4. Well mates, after arriving in Interlaken ( http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/57108-tasmania-tour-part-8-the-lakes-cradle-mountain-to-interlaken/ ) it was time for the last section of the island tour. Climbing south out of Interlaken ... ... I went down to Jericho and then northeasterly, over the Midland Highway: A little surprise here, did I suddenly get over to Holland? OK, everything is still fine with the Navigation: In a zone of really strong upwinds we find the Woodbury gliding club. Seems there is a reason for having the club at this location - one should give it a try! But what is this on the ground shortly north of Valleyfield? Needs some careful inspection: Well, the fire brigades are already there - no need to call for help. [Whoever has put this little detail into the scenery: A lovely idea this was!] So I could go on and approach the (usual) 32 L of Launceston: I think this sign in the open baggage claim area of YMLT (is it still there?) really makes a lot of sense, if you have seen some of the screenies of this tour already: There is a lot of wilderness around Tasmania. And one or the other pint of Cascade is well deserved now! Thanks for watching the screenies and following my tour. And many more thanks for creating this scenery details!
