Enjoy the View!

This one will be a classic - we will take small turbo prop aircraft and enjoy a nice, allthough slow, flight into the Alps.



Part 1

We will takeoff from Valence-Chabeuil in France and fly over beautiful mountain ridges and valleys towards LFKK and constantly climb to safety altitude. Heading North we will dive back into a valley surrounded by mountain ranges and overfly LFLG. The last leg will lead us towards Albertville (LFKA) where we will have our five minute break.

Part 2

This time we will takeoff from LFKA and fly towards Megeve (LFHM) for a nice view onto the Mount Blanc. From there will will take a short detour into the eastern valley to fly along the enourmous mountain ridge of Mont Blanc towards North to finally swing around East towards LFHZ. This detour will lead over a ridgeline we have to overfly so we need to climb rapidly here.
Then we follow the valley towards Annemasse (LFLI) and Geneve (LSGG). The last leg will lead us towards our final destination Lausanne (LSGL). As a nice final view point we will overfly the Lake Geneve.

Hey Carsten, I put the Arado Ar79B you were looking for in the daVinci Aircraft folder in Dev.

Cheers!

Hi Geed, I only saw the thread tonight. Would it be okay if I take the Pilatus PC 6? I like the aircraft, turboprop, steep climbs, max cruise about 120 kias.

Download with only about 3 MB from FGAddon.

CU tomorrow!
