We take off from Clermont-Ferrand, the Prefecture of the Puy-de-Dome Department. We start by heading North and West before coming down through the Massif Central one last time.
Mountains again?! Yes, well, Volcano’s to be more precise. Old volcano’s. This is the Chaine des Puys in the Massif Central, the oldest mountain range of France.
This chain of volcano’s started to form 95.000 years ago and are believed to be extinct today.
The location is a World Heritage site nonetheless. After passing over the Plomb du Cantal we make way West towards the Dordogne deparment.

In-Flight Entertainment
We will land a few times along the way to make sure you still have what it takes, these are all official aerodromes/airports. We recommend turning crash damage OFF.

Recommended Addons
See the #addons channel on MSFS Bush Pilots Discord server for recommended planes, mods, liveries and UI tweaks. Even if you don’t use all of them, it’s practical to have these to see others properly.

Additional Addons
See the #france-benelux-tour channel on MSFS Bush Pilots Discord server for additional addons such as POI Markers and scenery specific for this tour.

We recommend NOT changing the spawn location before loading in, as it can possibly overwrite the flight plan, turning it into a straight DIRECT GPS flight, or the autopilot will not follow it. Leave the flight plan as is, spawn on the runway and park somewhere nearby until take-off.
