The next Flight 19 adventure will involve flying lower and slower. We shall begin at Calgary's Springbank (CYBW) and head for a bit of short distance General Aviation flying in Alberta, Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho. Then, perhaps, we might turn northward.
Two bits of scenery will prove attractive but not necessary. These are designed for FS2004.
The first is the delightful "Pete & Sid's Viva Scenery," by Sidney Schwartz and Peter Ham. The package populates medium and small airfields and airstrips throughout the Northwest, Canada, and Alaska. It constitute a goodly-sized download but gives extensive coverage. At FlightSim.com or at AVSIM, look for pss_1.zip, pss_2.zip, pss_3.zip, and pss_4.zip as well as pss_so.zip. Ultimate Terrain users can also pick up Sidney Schwartz's fixes for six airports. At AVSIM, get pss_ut_updates_1.zip.
The second package is "Montana Unleashed" by Lauren Robison with Sidney Schwartz. At FlightSim.com, see montanau.zip and montunp2.zip. At AVSIM, montanu.zip and montana_unleashed_pt_2.zip. This package is really first rate freeware, with many of Montana's airports, large and small, depicted in an interesting and varied fashion. (An upgrade for Ultimate Terrain, by Ray Lunning, is at AVSIM: montn4ut.zip.)
A brilliant rendition of Calgary Springbank, by Adam Bentley and David Madge, can be found at FlightSim.com as cybw_v1.zip.
We should like to express our special thanks to Sidney Schwartz, Pete Ham, Lauren Robison, Ray Lunning, Adam Bentley and David Madge. Your wonderful work makes our hobby so much better.
The first leg is Calgary Springbank to Kalispell Glacier Park International (CYBW-KFCA, or CYBW-KGPI) where the gang can clear customs.
