  1. Long Island, NY south shore Start at KHWV make sure to taxi by the fuel area and see a guy next to his model plane. Take off head south and fly over the bay to Fire Island and fly east till you get to Moriches Inlet. This inlet ends Fire Island and starts the Hamptons. Turn north at this inlet and it’s a short flight to 1N2 Spadaro. Set up an approach on the left runway which is the grass one, get your speed down it’s very short. This is actually Lufker Airport. Taxi to the cut near the middle of the runway and head over to Spadaro Airport. Make a left onto the paved runway, past my hangar near the car. I keep my Zenith 701 and a couple ultralights. Take off from 36 and turn east. Fly over KFOK Gabreski and head to KHTO East Hampton Airport. Many Movie Stars have summer homes here. Take off and head to Block Island and further to Nantucket both Orbx payware. the others are all freeware by Neil Hill. Enjoy!
  2. If you have an annoying flicker with P3D4.3 in VR make sure to force off ASW with the Oculus Tray Tool if your using Oculus. It makes a world of difference the way the sim behaves. With Netherlands it makes things a lot smoother turning vehicle traffic off. Brian
  3. Looks beautiful and looking forward to this!
  4. It came with and installed with some Nantucket scenery I have, it hasn't interfered with any Orbx scenery. I do use Simstarter and it does not load when I use Orbx scenery in Europe.
  5. Recently I was flying around New Zealand I think but not sure Milford Sound area and came across a small airstrip in the woods. I set my cri-cri in, and noticed a shack at the end of a taxiway off the runway so narrow I knew I wouldn't be able to turn around. So I taxi down and am treated to a detailed shack with an old man sitting in a chair. I get out in avatar mode and walk over to check things out and there's a garbage can near by and a fly is buzzing around over it. I love that level of detail that Orbx developers bring to the sim. Avatar mode in P3Dv4 is the best way to explore. These guys can run,swim,jump and walk, move their heads around to take in the scenery and wonderful detail that is mostly hidden from the air. I explored all of Block Island, walking down the roads, swim across the pond, walk out on the jetties and watch the ferries come in. I use an X-Box wireless controller and it gives you so much more control than using the keyboard or joystick. Just turn it on and it takes over. There are free avatars online, even one with a flashlight for night exploring.
  6. A clue? https://www.theicct.org/transportation-roadmap
  7. Yes! Just recently flew to Chester to look at an RV -4 and fly over it often on my way to East Haddam for lunch at Goodspeed Airport 42B. Looks awesome! KSAN looks great. Brian
  8. What Orbx uses now is pretty cool how it works and I think as secure than PayPal
  9. I have the Just Flight Otter with the spray n play package. F1GTN installer also included.
  10. Happy Pilot you're going to be even happier if you add these! Make sure add-on sceneries that you currently have installed are at the top of the scenery library. While it's on sale get Orbx HD Trees as they add to the realism. Brian
