This a beautiful sim and the scenery is awesome. I would like to experience all parts of the world in the daytime. When its nighttime in Australia I try to scan the world and find a place to fly where its daytime. But sometimes I just end up at a big airport near a city.
I have no idea in the world where are the prettiest scenery and places to visit are. I’m basically looking for some airport codes around the world that would give me the above. I would happy if simmers in Europe, North America, Canada and Asia could suggest some good airport codes that are not near a big city and give some beautiful scenery to fly over.
Well I can help with something in the US.
1L8 - 00UT - KBCE - 1L7 - KLOA - KHVE
If you generally follow Utah route numbers 9, 89, 12, and 24 on the map then that is pretty much a scenic route through the US state of Utah.
I’m always interested in suggestions outside the US too
Switzerland has some of the most beautiful scenery in the game because the data quality is top-notch (perfect satellite imagery, great mesh). Take-off from LSVE for example, fly towards Interlaken or anywhere else. Just make sure to stay in Switzerland, don’t fly to Italy or France.
Africa: take-off from GQPA, fly east towards the Richat Structure. The landscape along the journey is beautiful.
Any RNAV approach 19L or 19R into KLAS. You get the entire Strip in front of you and pax get to see it when you land. I know it’s a city approach the but the views are still fantastic
KLGA has a really nice approach via the Hudson and Manhattan just zooms by. Again, City but still a fantastic route to fly if you’re paying attention
KASE or KTEX (Aspen and Telluride Colorado). Amazing canyon run approach. I’d say a bit easier than Innsbruck (LOWI) or Paro (VQPR) as far as approaches go. Both LOWI and VQPR also have amazing canyon run approaches
You can depart Cuzco Airport in Peru (SPZO) and head south and spot the Nazca Lines or head west and tour the Andes mountains. The Challenge will be staying aloft with the thin air!
Island Nations in the Carribbean, Micronesia, Polynesia or Melanesia (Tonga, Fiji, Papua New Guinea etc) make for good puddle jumps and bush flying. Start at St Maarten (TNCM) or St Barthélemy (TFFJ) and see how it feels
Last but not least, the Last Frontier: Alaska. Start at PANC, head north and look for Santa Claus
