CCB_002

Multi-Mission Ferry Flight



Last week we had a great time. The flight plan was fairly simple, the landings fairly easy. However, a couple of you said that you thought it was a little too easy. Well, okay, I can fix that *evil grin*…

First of all, let’s cover the required files list for this flight. These files are mandatory – you must have them installed on your system.

* The aircraft will be the Maule M7-260 available in the CC Downloads section.
* The scenery is the awesome Glacier Bay package available on Flightsim.com and Avsim. The file names to search for are: glbayv2a.zip and glbayv2b.zip. These are large downloads – 56 megs and 85 megs respectively, but ‘you get what you pay for’ in terms of file size. This package covers a large area in the northern panhandle of Alaska and includes accurate mesh, shorelines, landclass, airports and a whole lot of beautiful eye candy.

* The scenery files included in this package: move or copy the Com Central Bush Flights folder to your fs9\addon scenery folder. This adds the small research station to Brady Glacier. Be sure to go into your Scenery Library and activate this scenery.


Now, on to the particulars for this adventure.

The CCB_002.zip file contains the following:

* CCB_002 Briefing This briefing document.
* CCB_002 Briefing_files folder Contains images for this document.
* CCB_002.fsn FSNav flight plan. Move or copy this file to your fs9\modules\FSNavigator\plan folder.
* CCB_002 VFR Juneau to Brady Glacier.PLN FS9 GPS flight plan. Move or copy this file to your My Documents\Flight Simulator Files folder.
* CCB_002-Sectional.jpg A partial sectional chart roughly describing our route.
* Com Central Bush Flights folder Contains scenery for Brady Glacier. Move or copy this folder to your fs9\addon scenery folder and activate it in the fs9 Scenery Library.

The Adventure

Today we have a number of missions to complete. First, we will pick up several FAA technicians and their tools at PAJN and fly them to Sisters Island, where they will perform scheduled maintenance on the Sisters Island VOR. Then, we will fly to the terminus of Brady Glacier and pick up some core samples and other hard data from the small semi-permanent science station there. These items we’ll deliver to RAWL, the Wood Lake Research Station. Once there, we will take on a number of the staff and their luggage and return them to PAJN so that they can catch flights for their well earned vacations. Expect less than perfect weather and some very challenging landings.



Setup

Aircraft: Maule M7-260 Taildragger with Wheels/Skis
Fuel Load: 150 pounds
Payload: Yourself and no more than 450 pounds of passengers/baggage

We tested this run yesterday and it's a real good one! Don't forget to drop in the custom .bgl in for the glacier outpost scenery like I did....duh!

The Glacier Bay scenery is top shelf and Bobs' route gets two thumbs up!

Hope I can make it later for the fun,
Gary

I don't know if this is the right place for this post but I wanted to say Thank You Razz to Bob for preparing this wonderful flight. So sorry I had to quit a bit early. I'm looking forward for the next events, especially since I will not be able to join again before beginning of May.

Thanks again, it was a lot of fun to fly with you, have a nice week.
Regards
