Description: A chill leg starting at a mountaintop bush strip, then coasting along rolling mountains and hills back to the Mediterranean coast, whizzing past Murcia, another photogrammetry city in the game. We welcome the thick, salty air near the sea as we pass over some pink lakes (yes! pink!), the health mecca for people with asthma, allergies, and hayfever, before landing at Alicante.
In-Flight Entertainment: Finding interesting places to land along the way and watch each other make a mess out of it.
You may want to try out the free Cessna Caravan, Savage Cub and XCub performance mods for better performance and shorter landings/takeoffs. Even if you don’t want to try them out, installing them will make sure that you see other player’s planes properly instead of a brown Bonanza.

Optionally if you want to see Alicante more accurately:
To see liveries properly, the Liveries megapack may be necessary.
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 turn into a straight “DIRECT GPS” line flight. I suggest, leaving the flight plan as it is, spawn on the runway without any fear, but get out of the way ASAP and park somewhere nearby.
