In-Flight Entertainment: Finding interesting places to land on.


  • A highly recommended, very useful fix for version 1.12.13, fixing the terrain glitches like the weird spikes and the water levels that popped up. This should work until the next update comes out and fixes it.

  • An enhancement of Vigo Bay, including it’s iconic bridge is an optional addition to the final destination to make the scenic final approach to the airport more enjoyable:

  • A nice VFR scenery addon with communication, radio, and tv antennas, radar domes, construction cranes and satellite/radio telescope dishes for Europe and parts of North Africa

  • You may want to try out the free Bonanza, Cessna Caravan, Savage Cub and XCub mods for better performance and shorter landings/takeoffs. Even if you don’t want to fly them, installing them will make sure that you see other player’s planes properly instead of a brown Bonanza.

  • To see liveries properly, the Liveries megapack may be useful.

IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT LOADING FLIGHT PLANS: Due to the nature of how FS2020 loads flight plans, if you load the plans in the sim, it will place you on the runway. If you CHANGE your spawn location, the flight plan will either turn into a straight “DIRECT GPS” line flight, or your autopilot might not follow it. We suggest leaving the flight plan as it is, spawn on the runway and park somewhere nearby.

FLIGHT PLAN: final version coming soon
