Alright, so I’ve realised that I’m doing far too much IFR flying in the same parts of the world. I want to see somewhere different, after all this sim revolves around jaw-dropping graphics. So where better to do it than in MSFS?! However, this around the world trip is different to most. Lucky for me, I received my email from Volanta (flight - tracking software; similar concept to SimToolkitPro) saying I’m part of their beta, so here I am testing out their product whilst having fun. Watch me as I venture through the world in my trusty turboprop, with no shortcuts taken. I will document every step of the journey day-by-day, with most posts over the weekend, commencing 16/01/21.

Leg 1: EGBG-EGPH (16/01/21)

Heading into night in Scotland, taking the TBM to Iceland! This trip is about to get a whole lot more interesting…

Typical Icelandic weather! Flying out of quiet/mostly unknown airports:
Leg 4: BIBL-BIID (17/01/21)
I think the above pic was at sunrise. I learnt how to use focus properly, so some jaw-dropping pictures will be on their way - it should make for some lovely desktop wallpaper!
Arrival at a tiny runway - had to slam it down to get here. Swerved around several mountains to make it down here safely (mini LOWI arrival) Lovely authentic scenery here; wooden houses.
Leg 5: BIID-BGGH (20/03/21)
The return of the TBM!
We’re on our way to America (albeit, via several other countries).
