Post subject: I give up

Hello;
I dont know how you guys fly these routes and land when you dont know where the strip is. FS NAV gets you close but I am coming in way to high to land. Any tips would be appreciated but in the mean time I am going back to landing at established airports.

Hiya Bill!

Yep, those 'strips' are hard to find at time and sometimes, there's no strip to find and you have to land on a glacier or sandbar. Most of the time, it's the location in general such as an outpost and not an actual strip. A tip would be to get in the general area and look for signal smoke coming from the ground or a chimney.

Did you install the Scenery from Maple One? Maple did a wonderful job building the cabins and landing areas... Wink

Yes I have all the scenery installed and I am blown away by how nice it is. Im not really going to give up. I know this type of flying is difficult especially when your used to having a nice runway in front of you with 10 miles to get set up for the landing. Where I am trying to land is the Warm Creek strip. You come over a rise and I see the strip but I am to high {few beers too} to land. I will keep trying maybe before I have a few beers.

ROFLMAO... I understand...lol

A tip: Try to come in using a short stall aircraft such as the Maule or J3 Cub just above stall speed. If you miss the approach, go around and try again... Wink

I believe the scenery allows for other settings such as "Winter" (Frozen Lakes) and "Summer" (water) so you may want to check that out. If I remember right, the setting in the Start Menu.

I'll get in touch with Maple_One and ask him to comment as he's the "Guru" on these flights and knows them very well... Wink

Hi!
In your main FS folder is a folder called "Com-Central Bush Flights". Under that is a sub-folder that has a file named "Scenery Locater Database". This lists every scenery in the package with all kinds of useful info about each location including lat/long, elevation, 'runway' heading, type of surface (grass, dirt, water, etc.). This will help you quite a bit in finding the landing areas and type of aircraft to use for any given destination. Knowing the approach headings will help you get set up for landings as well.

You should also have a bunch of saved flights under the "Select a Flight" menu under Com-Central Bush Flights. These are all detailed adventures with illustrated briefings, GPS flight plans, etc. Go ahead and try those Smile .

As far as the frozen lakes and rivers that Bushy mentioned goes, under the Start Menu - All Programs is FS Addons. In there is the Glacier Bay Configurater. There's a check box at the bottom of that when you run it to 'freeze' lakes and rivers. Obviously, at this time of year, that should be unchecked. You'll need a float plane or amphibian to land at the water locations.

Hope this helps, and thanks for the kind words about my work Smile .

Hey Maple One - So good to hear from you. All of us who know your work have many kind words about it. Things have not been the same without you being around. Let us know how things are going. We wish the best for you.

No problem you deserve the praise. I see the flights you refer to but I dont see the detailed breifings and nothing shows up on the GPS. I normally dont use GPS so I am probably missing something.

Bill, I think you are very close to finding this and it is worth the effort. I am about ready to get back into these. They were so much fun flying.

When you see the flights like CCB-043 click on them and open them. You should see: Payload Page, Flight Plan Action, and Illustrated Briefings. Scroll through the Illustrated Briefings and you should see pictures of the landing areas and all about them. Bob did such a great job preparing all this. Some of them are still hard to find when flying but keep trying. Hope that will help.

Bill, I left out one step. When you open CCB-043 you will find CCB_043.htm and that is where the three files are. Then open the Illustrated Briefings. Good luck.

If you still have problems send me a PM and we go through this on Teamspeak, these flights are well worth the effort!
