  1. Let's continue these short hops to be as-real-as-it-gts on Califonia. These flights on Prepar3D are real trainer for me. I can practise Foreflight mobile app on my iPad. In France, I use Skydemon, so because I plan next month to be in California, I need to be current with Foreflight. And as I'm not using anymore paper chart, I had to be efficient. Thanks to Orbx, I choose to depart from Monterey (KMRY) and FBO Monterey Jet Center FBO. My plan is to fly along the coast and below the class Bravo airspace. To do so, let's use the FLY chart on the San Francisco TAC (Terminal Area Chart) : This chart is unusual for me. I'm french and I'm not use to have a official chart which explains me how to fly below a specific airspace. With big blue arrows, it shows how to interfere with the Bravo airspace which protect big airport, like here San Francisco International KSFO. So, let's fly around the San Francisco Bay, by the west coast, from Half Moon Bay via the Golden Gate to end at Concord Buchanan (KCCR). If I want to be out of contact of anyone, let's fly below 6'000 feet, then after Half Moon Bay, let's descend below 4'000 feet, then a left-right to descend below 2'000 feet because we are right in the KSFO departure (if 28 in service) : Then, we can climb 3'000 to overfly the Golden Gate. Or we can stay lower. If I want I can to straight northbound (see the empty magenta arrow), there is a VFR transition named Coastline VFR Transition. But it requires an ATC clairance. And this clairance process is not delivered by the pretty much old ATC under FSx/Prepar3D. The route as seen from Foreflight with Navlog on top ... and the navigation log automatically generated by Foreflight... That I don't use. Let's continue with the same plane. I take N4975F (with the A2A C172 Trainer). The author of the previous texture has enhanced (better resolution) his work. We'll be 2 on board. I top-off and few luggages. N4975F is a 180 hp and we are far from the max weight. chevaux et on est loin de la masse max. As in my last trip in Monterey, I depart from Monterey Jet Center (Orbx KMRY) : I enter quickly the route in the Flight1 GTN 650. Just in case of. Just to have a backup. And to read some ETA : Taxi clairance is for holding point November, runway 28L. I draw it in green with annotate tool in Foreflight Taxi at Monterey. At the holding point, I wait 10 minutes. Ultimate Traffic Live is great... but at 100% it creates the same issue as in real. You wait I also look at arrival from the Foreflight map which display AI traffic from P3D. It helps understanding the ATC work : Then, it's time to take-off ! There is a FEW at 2'500 feet. The plan is to turn right after departure. Right turn on initial climb toward Half Moon Bay Local advice as seen from the FBO Cloud are here. I had to slalom to stay VMC Look at the beautiful brand new hi-rez texture of N4975F ! Santa Cruz is far away, I head north over the Monterey bay From Foreflight in the middle of the bay Overt Half Moon Bay And if we look closely at the chart... we are just few miles from KSFO Here is a real screen shot... I mean a screen shot taken during a real life flight Look at the ADSB traffic displayed (and visible) by the app. ADSB antenna are strong there Is there more or less traffic than my PC can generate with constant framerate with Ultimate Traffic Live ? ;))))) Again some clouds And even with a good preparation, I didn't manage correctly my altitude and flew into the Bravo without a clairance Sutro Tower at Twin Peaks just before San Francisco Merced Lake at the right and the Golden Gate Park in the left. And the Golden Gate ahead ! As I descend below 2'000 feet And don't forget all this flight is perfectly legal and possible in the real life ! Without PPR, without complicated clairance, in VFR... San Francisco skyline, Oakland Bay Bridge and Treasure Island Almost overhead The Skyline and the Golden Gate in 2016 as seen from a C172 ... and the classical weather Golden Gate in 2008 as seen from the real 4975F Ok, let's leave the bay and all the touristic attractions : Golden Gate, Alcatraz, and San Francisco downtown A little climb to go over hills before reaching Concord (KCCR) ATC clairance is to join the left downwind 32L Turning final 32L Approach 32L is weird with this path so close to the tower ! Concord is really tricky (to taxi). I never were confident. Let's draw in green the taxi clairance to go to the Pacific State Aviation FBO Concord has a lot of school trafic Default scenery by Orbx NORCAL. Better than the default FSx/P3D ! Parked at Pacific State Aviation FBO That's it ! I hope you enjoy this short flight ! See my previous posts : From Bakerfield to Kern Valley : From Victorville to Vegas with Orbx SOCAL :
  2. I just had to get one more flight in before it was time to call it a day. A quick jaunt from Half Moon Bay to Monterrey. It got foggy along the way, and I had flashbacks to my last flight in murky weather; that did not end well. Luckily, I had the GTN 750 ready to assist, and it cleared up regardless. I simply can not get enough of A2A's Bonanza!
  3. Getting ready at Sonny Bono Airport for a trip to the coast, once again with AS16 real weather - and hoping for californian sun... This is what I call a blurry VC, as already reported I have this impression since I changed from 4.1 to 4.3. I must try to change some settings (which I did not change actively)... At least we can get her in the air and leave Palm Springs with nice views. Passing the San Gabriel mountains... ... before entering thick overcast on descend. Again. These coastal clouds are a pain! While I was carefully descending, ATC announced a change of runway, just to increase my stress level a bit. I was not even able to capture a shot of the milk outside - just in the final seconds the runway came into view: Full brakes... ... and here we are, ready for some crab dinner at Cannery Road. But where is the sunshine?
  4. ... for a little lift from Monterey... ... over San Francisco Bay... ... to Half Moon Bay. Please proceed to the terminal. Now what should I do: Stay for a coffee or take the car?
  5. Departing KHQM... Damn this thing climbs like a rocket...! (Been flying the C182 plenty lately haha) Flying _above_ the weather for once... lol! Descending... Captured! 50... 40... 30... 20... 10... Hello Monterey! Love this airport by Orbx!
  6. Some more shots from a morning tour of Monterey in the Baron 58.
  7. Monterey to Sonoma County Enjoy and thanks for looking! P3DV3 - Orbx Weather 3 Cheers Karsten
  8. 'Waking up' one engine at a time. This old bird needs no introduction .......
  9. This -10 is more like a DC 4 ½ than a 9... Here are some of the DC 9-10 on a flight departing from Monterey See? I told you it was Monterey... The flight was originally intended to go on to Lake Tahoe, but my computer has been playing up lately - and 10 minutes before the scheduled arrival it just froze and rebooted (better than the tearing of graphics and BSOD that I have been seeing from time to time when running pretty much any application) More or less cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard
  10. Two takeoff shots and one landing shot, enjoy! #1 #2 #3
  11. Just thought I'll take the Carenado Bonanza F33a for a spin after I completed my first repaint. The livery is a tribute to Carenado. Let me know what you all think!
  12. Getting back into the swings of things, getting everything reinstalled into P3D v3.2. Took the always-great A2A Cherokee up for an afternoon spin around the Monterey area. Hope you enjoyed! A lot more to come very soon.
  13. Laguna Seca Raceway Weather clear - AS2016 + ASCA Global Auto When you want it to be foggy/cloudy it's clear.
  14. Getting in before dark . . . Moss Landing and Elkhorn Slough on Monterey Bay. Approaching KMRY Monterey Airport. No sea fog as there often is this time of year due to an offshore wind, landing RWY 10R Passing Monterey Airport Terminal to the GA parking ramp Thanks for viewing
  15. Visiting the Monterey Region in NorCal today ......... the scenery left me speechless ...... I can't wait to get off the ground in this region !
  16. Are you ready for a little Saturday evening flight? Walking down the coast is no alternative! So take off, ... ... can you see Junipero lookout? Seems to be worth some helicoper trials. Down the coast... ... to Hearst Castle, ... ... and Morro Bay for the night. Sunday morning. Pismo Dunes. The weather magnet works again. Also over Carrizo Soda Lake, ... ... Santa Barbara, ... ... and Channel Island NP. Finally (and fortunately) Santa Cruz Island appears from the grey.
  17. Conditions looked so fine when I took off in Monterey and crossed Cannery Row. But just around the corner, in Pebble Beach, the visibility got worse. GPS made me find Fish Head Hill airstrip (what a name?). Technically this is like a Papua NG bushstrip. Can you even see the runway in the second shot? Laguna Seca Raceway, hard to spot. And even for landing in KMRY I needed 2 attempts with this weather. A nice challenge to fly, but if you want to explore scenery...
  18. Unedited screenshots of a flight from Half Moon Bay (KHAF...hopefully ORBX KHAF soon) to Monterey (KMRY). I used the Realism Shader that Jordan graciously shared, and I really like the way it makes the environment look. I hope you enjoy them as well!
  19. Hi all, With Orbx Systems, P3Dv3.2, Jarrad's FTX US KMRY Monterey Regional Airport and A2A-SIMULATIONS-T-6 TEXAN Have happy weekend gents! Voyager
  20. Got the DA-40 running smooth in P3D for a leisurely trip up the coast of NCA from Monterey to a relatively quiet Sonoma County. Lots of great sights in between including some familiar landmarks of San Francisco and KSFO. Enjoy this full flight set as much as I did!
  21. Some unedited shots of a quick flight from Monterey to San Carlos. It was awfully hazy in the Bay Area, and the crosswind on final at San Carlos was a little daunting.
  22. Slowly but surely installers for my airports are releasing for P3D, and I was delighted to find out that KMRY/Monterey was the latest of the sort. Loaded up the trusty Texan and decided to take a short hop around the area, getting a view of the airport, the city, the water, and even the iconic Laguna Seca raceway (how could any motorsport fan miss this one?) Enjoy!
  23. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Sur San Luis Obispo to Monterey Sorry for so many shots, but it was such a beautiful flight, i couldn't decide which shots i should leave out. Enjoy and thanks for looking! FSX - DX10 - Shade - ASN Weather Cheers Karsten
