  1. I just purchased and installed AYPY (Jacksons. Papua New Guinea) but all 10 of the back country bush airstrips are missing .... that is, they don't show up when I attempt to fly from Jacksons to one of them, and Jackson's is rendered correctly. I used Orbx's supplied Google Earth kmz to find the airstrips but none can be found!! I installed the latest libraries, no help ... I then reinstalled AYPY .... no help. Reading Orbx's description it says that 10 airstrips are provided? I just don't know how to find them. HELP! jIM
  2. Big job flying a bunch of cargo up to the village of Woitape. This was going to be a two plane shuttle and I was going to flying the big crate in P2-KSM while the rest was being flown up in P2-KSI. The flight started just before the crack of dawn trying to get up there before the heat of the day added to the planes performance. On the ground it was already 80F and Im sure there was plenty of low clouds and fog up in the valleys yet to burn off. Found an opening after circling the field and made a nice slow approach into land. KSI w
  3. Looking at a post by Republic DC-9 tonight and there is the Alabeo Aztec. I had heard this was on the way but did not realise it had been released. About time there was a Piper Aztec available in FSX and P3D. This first flight is from AYPY to Kokoda. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. Yet another beautiful aircraft and Moctezuma got his revenge on me by making me fork out nearly AU$50 for this, but you can't take it with you can you?
  4. Gentlemen: Parking spots coincident with International Gates 1 & 2 at AYPY Port Moresby International appear to be collocated with a fuel pit (not visible in FSX). Is there any means by which I might exclude the fuel pit or otherwise trigger FSX to not immediately top off the aircraft at the gate? Cheers, Jason
  5. Re installed the Otter today after reading a post on how to make it closer on the monitor while keeping the background in focus. Simple just press Ctrl + or -. So started up, nah too smooth a sounding engine. Listened on good old YouTube and decided to fit it with the IRIS soundworks P&WR-2800. If you don't mind umpire that sounds way better! SO off from Jacksons to find one of those little bush strips up in the mountains. 1. Setting off for Manari with cargo and passengers. 2. I haven't told them I have never tried landing this beastie before.
  6. An overview of Port Moresby (AYPY), Not really the good gate for that plane but just for looking it. Have a good flight and happy new year for all the ORBX simmers
  7. Elvations of lakes in the coordinates: Lat: S9° 23.29' Lon: E147° 11.73' Although the owners of Orbx addon AYPY can isolate this issue in the software control panel still persite the issue because other customers may not have the addon mentioned. Cheers, Voyager
  8. Since Ozjet ran this service between Brisbane and Port Moresby I thought I'd give it a try Brisbane departure at 9:15 a.m. Passing over Caloundra... ...and Hervey Bay (a bit fuzzy - but I was at 20,000 feet) Leaving the Australian coast behind Jacksons International well in sight More or less cropped DX10s. Cheers Mallard
  9. Weather is getting worse here in Germany, so I needed a different perspective...
  10. Thought I would celebrate post #7777 with shots of my favourite modern airliner the 777. 1. Leaving PANC at Anchorage AK. 2. 3. Avoiding the mountains at PAVD Valdez. 4. 5. Now the tropics at AYPY Jacksons International 6. 7. Finally NSTU Pago Pago. 8.
  11. Looking at Gerold's wonderful flight from NSTU to AYPY reminded me of a flight I did a few weeks ago. Like Gerold I chose the Air New Zealand Boeing 777 but mine was the Captain Sim 300. An early morning departure from AYPY to NZAA a distance of over 2600 miles. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12.
  12. Getting ready in the early morning at American Samoa. I doubt there is a RL scheduled connection on this route, but ANZ offered a bit of comfort today for the interested simmer. Ready to taxi, engines running. Maybe I accidently turn the PeopleFlow into PeopleMelt? OK, all went well. No claims. Turning north out of the easterly take-off. Westbound to the sea. To plenty of sea. Cut. Many hours later, already descending over Papua New Guinea. FSGRW doesn´t have boring clouds either, Rockliffe! Downwind, please follow the ATC instructions... Always a pleasur
  13. Following the unexpected task http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/102748-goroka-air-services-part-1/I kept on bringing the mechanics around the Isle. We followed the trail, ... ... over Isurava (that runway is a bit short even for the Twotter), ... ... naturally stopping at the hub in Kokoda. Where some work needs to be done. Followed the river eastwards ´til the waterfall. Stopped, inspected the village (no mover found !), and turned, to get this beautiful view. Heading out of the valley again... ... to Girua. Good business for the mover service. A li
  14. Early morning, Goroka Air is heading out of Jacksons to pick up some technicians in Menari. Limited view into the valleys... ...but finally a gap between the clouds. A nice place for garden lovers... ... but the mechanic I picked up in Menari asked me to get some spare parts in Kagi. Spare parts? In this remote place? What the hxxx are they willing to repair? Ah, here in Efogi they revealed their business...: ... Lawn mover maintenance! Unfortunately one passenger wanted to be dropped off for hiking in Milei - quite limited visibility... ... and even with vis

  19. The video is more about the IRIS Beechcraft T-6 Texan II, but you clearly see the quality of the ORBX scenery. It's a tutorial/summary I made for this airplane this weekend. Flying around ORBX - AYPY Jacksons International Airport https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrSZokYOXaQ

  22. Well - after Ken's remarks in my Foul paradise set I went looking - and found that I did indeed have the OZx PNG mesh on a higher priority than the Holgermesh. Deactivated that and revisited some of the strips... With my trusted Sunny (who in the real world was actually based in PNG for quite a while) After the departure from Kokoda Gaining altitude to cross the mountains in one piece First strip "TimKenUmo": Second one - Kagi: Third one - Manap(r?)i: (That was the one with the washing in the rain) And on to Jacksons

  24. Took off from AYPY a couple of weeks ago on a flight to AYMH Mount Hagen. http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/90882-jackson-5-times-two-plus-one/ I got a little side tracked and forgot to post the rest of the flight.

  25. Brought AYPY in the sales and so happy, as not only enjoying getting into all kinds of strife on the Kokoda Trail but also exploring some of the breathtaking scenery to be had in other parts of PNG.
