Flight Adventure - The Cheyenne family
In this issue, we fly some Alaskan routes in the Piper Cheyenne twin turboprop as we explore its features, innovations and perhaps why so few remain flying today.
Much of the scenery in the accompanying screenshots are from the Orbx Simulations range (www.orbxdirect.com). Alternatives for other flight simulator platforms, as well as some basic charts and flight plans, are included in the Pilot’s Notes in the downloads section for this issue – located here. The fuel and other calculations are based on the Carenado Cheyenne II but the principles remain the same if you select a different aircraft.
Orbx's Landmarks Auckland City Pack – The City of Sails
Auckland discovery tour Orbx has made extensive terraforming and shoreline adjustments across the scenery coverage area to ensure it fits with both the default MFS scenery as well as its own ‘NZ Mesh’ DEM payware terrain add-on.
Having learned to fly at Auckland myself in the real world, I have spent countless hours flying over the city while hour-building towards my commercial licence. There were always friends and family keen to come along for a city scenic, so I’ve recreated the route often flown as a flight plan for the international readers of PC Pilot to help familiarise themselves with the city which can be downloaded here.
