  1. PNW has always been one of my favourite regions in flight simulator ever since I installed the free PNW demo from Orbx for Flight Simulator X years ago. Yesterday, I've taken advantage of the sale and got myself TrueEarth US Washington for X-Plane 11. The experience is magnifient. My first flight started from Bowerman – my old FBO for flights in the PNW region – via Sekiu to Darrington. In comparision to the UK, all the default airfields look a little dull due to the missing buildings, so I might consider purchasing some additional airports.
  2. Dear all, I was wondering whether there are any KMZ files available for the TrueEarth regions, in particular Great Britain. While I was able to obtain some files via several forum threads, it would be great to have them at a central place (no pun intended).
  3. Thank you, guys! Yes, I started looking up some sights on the internet and then created a flightplan based on that. Much to discover!
  4. I have to admit it is great fun blasting over the landscape with 180+ knots. Departure was Isle of Syke, Destination Benbecula, Outer Hebrides.
  5. Yes, I played around with GIMP. But just in terms of saturation, contrast and brightness. So nothing too grave. Here's one original, just for comparison:
  6. All XP, Jack! I have to confess though that some colour, brightness and contrast adjustments have been applied after the flight.
  7. Just three shots from X-Plane 11:
  8. #47 by jean marc for me. The Catalina and this landscape in the background are a great match!
  9. Ahh, the small classic. Many companies here in Germany switched towards the Guimbal Cabri G2 for pilot training though. I'd love to fly one of the larger helicopters (H135/H145), but I guess you either need to become a pilot yourself or fly with it being a patient for the air ambulance. Yet, I don't think the latter is going to be fun at all...
