  1. Left Portland on Ry 28R then on climbing out had to do about a 180 to head off to Yakama That's Mt. St Helens in the background. the B120 looks good, flies good, and integrates well with the GTN 750. The things you need to work, work. ILS approach into Ry 27 Yakama, KYKM. The approach was very smooth. Flight time from Portland about 30 minutes. Made a pretty good landing.
  2. Here is an ILS approach with the Carenado EMB 120 into KMFR Ry 14, Medford, Oregon. The approach is between the two table rock mountains just below the right wing. When you get between the table rocks it gets real bumpy. Good view of the leftward table rock mountain with the runway in the distance. Just above in the distance is Roxy Ann mountain, an extinct volcano that last erupted several million years ago.
  3. On approach to NZWR, Whangarei, NZ. Close observers will note flaps and gear down and a lot of down elevator. Like some high wing airplanes the Shed tends to balloon a bit with flaps down. I am almost always too high. Shutdown. Nice little airport. Runway 24 is 3595 feet long. Definitely needed the thrust reversers as we floated a bit on landing. I will never like the stupid traffic cones.
  4. Here we are about 5 miles out of YMMB There is no ILS approach and I was quite off line. Took a lot of quick adjustment to get lined up but I managed not too bad a landing except that It turns out that you don't need reverse thrust if you forget to lower the landing gear. YMML would have been a better choice.
  5. Here we are on approach to Brisbane YBBN. I flew out to Sidney the next day and never got any closer to the city center.
  6. I keep coming back to LEAS again and again because some sceneries are beyond perfection. This is one of them.
  7. Hello Team, I dont know if the following issue is from Orbx. BUt there is no City lights. Here you can see Madrid at night. I have install BASE, VECTOR, OPEN LC Europe....
  8. Hello guys... do you have any ideas why my rain textures look horrible? I have Envtex, Skyforce 3d and PrecipitFX.
  9. Chalk's International Mallard, from the Milton Shupe Team, leaving KSAN for a flight up the SoCal coast. TTM (P3D v4.5)
  10. Nice one Orbx - and thanks for the new Brissie Aerodrome for P3D4/5 and for the 50% discount Now we look forward to the completion of the MSFS product integrated with the Cityscape
  11. Super happy about KTEX being ported to V5, but after flying in the rockies area I realized that the amazing gem of 65S is still missing from the roster. Any chance of seeing it in the near future? Best Regards, Alessandro
  12. Good Day dear Orbx folks! As one of the users who have been very vocal about some issues with the release version of Brisbane v2, it is now time for a sincere thank you! For me, the new 1.1.0 update has significantly improved the points that bothered me about the release version. So I would like to thank you for listening to us and apologize for being such a pain in the back. Christoph
  13. Would I be correct in assuming that whilst I am downloading and installing TE products my P3D will be out of action? Just about to get Washington plus both North and South Cal, wanted to make sure I had a large enough enough window of time, it's more the conversion period for me that seems to take the longest....
  14. Welcome to Helsinki! Helsinki-Vantaa Airport (IATA: HEL, ICAO: EFHK; Finnish: Helsinki-Vantaan lentoasema, Swedish: Helsingfors-Vanda flygplats), or simply Helsinki Airport, is the main international airport of the city of Helsinki, its surrounding metropolitan area, and the Uusimaa region.

Just in "case" you are interested @flyingleafthere was 'hic', absolutely no spillage 'hic' ! Well, OK, just a little! 'hic'! he said as he licked his lips!

Before take off checklist! 4 No between airport scenery shots, so here we are on final into PAEN runway 2L! Gear down, flaps full, 85kts, 2 red, 2 white! 5 Passenger with his head hanging out the window taking runway shots, "spillage" I assume! 6 Area just off the end of the runway, at low tide! 7 Almost over the fence at this point! 8 All around the Water tank, just a waitin' for a plane! Ya, gotta remember that old song!!! 9. Just before splash down...err, I mean touch down! 10 Finally to the unloading of the cargo for the locals and the pilot of course!

  18. Not an airfield I visit often, but I took the Majestic Dash-8 Q400 in at dusk. Using the 'Start at 4,000', 10 miles out' approach, I found the engines dead. Did manage to get them fired up, but I was not set up properly & overflew. I was surprised at how well the Q400 glided while I wrestled the engines. TTM (P3D v4.5)
  19. I was surprised to find this...more color depth...nicer visuals...in running in P3D v4.5 rather than in v5.HF2 Could be DX11 and v4.5's shader renderings. So...I guess it will be seen in v4.5 for myself. This is funny! FYI, same HDR settings in both sims...so Apples to Apples in my judgement on my system. I think Orbx used v4.5 to punch out the promo shots....they look close now. v4.5 seen at 5,000 ASL. ...

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.
