Where do you fly?

I like west coast of Scotland, Plockton to Benbecuela, I also like Death Valley to Shoshone, let’s be honest this sim is wonderful so much to explore.

Love hearing all the places to check out!
When we think about what’s out there we find a trove of treasures to see, despite some of the short comings of the sim.

Actually from the sky in one of the pics, I’d say it absolutely cannot be msfs/fs2020.

I also fly a ton around SE, the Philippines (also because my in-game career is based off of there - :small_airplane: RPVM) and between :small_airplane: CYBR (it’s surrounding municipal airports - I love flying over my neighborhood) and :small_airplane: CYWG (Winnipeg), when practicing flying. Tons of lakes to see over Manitoba → NW Ontario.

When I’m on OnAir its wherever it takes me (generally around SE UK at the moment. EGLF is my home-base), when I’m not using OnAir I have a fly a cessna around the world challenge I’ve set myself. So far have done England to Jersey to France to Greece to Turkey to Ukraine to Moscow. I keep looking at the leg from Moscow to the Bering Straits to get across to North America without a massive Sea leg and decide to go back to OnAir!

I’m an OnAiir guy too and generally fly the South of England from Bournemouth, Southampton and the Channel Islands when doing the career stuff.
I highly recommend Jersey as there are lots of short range executive transport jobs there to keep an ai pilot busy and earning. Good fuel prices too.

Just the usual spots

  1. Over your current house
  2. Over where you grew up
  3. Where you first had real flying lessons.
  4. Cessna Citation take off from Lukla. Just to see if you can… and because the Cessna 152 wasn’t clearing the mountain opposite… :slight_smile:

Just finished leg 11 of my round the world VFR-ish journey starting in Edinburgh and heading West. Trying to pick up as many sights, photogrammetry and handbuilt airports along the way - definitely taking the scenic route. I’m not being too strict - started out trying to go a single save, but a few bugs have got in the way of that. Each leg is a new flight and I do proper take off and landings, but I;m not getting hung up on fuel and taxiing to gates and stuff just yet. Using each leg to try a few things and to to get to grips with ILS landings, RNAV landings etc and procedures - all new to me as a non pilot and new simmer. Progress map below, and my journal is here. Having a blast.


I’m currently going for the ‘SIDS and STARS’ achievement, landing at 25 starred airports. So far I’ve done
Londonderry to Donegal in the C172 (steam gauge) and Nairobi to Entebbe in the Dreamliner. Right now I’m on my way from KMSP to Chicago in the Airbus.

I actually have done more flights and landed at starred airports (NZQN, LFPG) but for some reason these didn’t count towards the achievement. Anybody else had same? I wonder if it ‘reset’ my progress after the latest patch…

starting at my local grassfield KBEA in Beeville Tx in the savage - flying it west to Freer to check out my ranches from the air (kinda) - eventually going to fly to some scenic spots elsewhere, but just enjoying flying out past my home as a starting point.

For right now mostly in southern MI/northern Ohio because that is where I live. If not there Southern California because I used to live there and there are lots of airports, mountain, ocean, deserts and military bases scattered all over.

Now that I am betting familiar with sim I might start venturing out a bit more.

I have yet to fly over my own house or places I have lived in. I have flown over the areas but haven’t actually tried to find the houses or anything.



Yesterday KCLT (Charlotte, NC) was PACKED with pilots. I have no idea why but it was insane!

North west Queelsnland, Australia. Between Kowanyama (YKOW), Normanton(YNTN)/Karumba(YKMB) & Burketown (YBKT).


Taken the A320 from Nairobi-Luanda-Lagos-Casablanca-Madeira-Ibiza-London-Moscow-Baghdad-Delhi-Kuala Lumpur- Darwin-Sydney-Cairns-Singapore(ate into fuel reserves :disappointed:)-Hong Kong- Beijing-Narita-Khomutovo. Next is Anchorage.

Most of my flights are in SoCa, but I have been in Alaska, they did a great job there. Glacier National Park was amazing. I used the King Air mostly on longer flights. I use Foreflight and just set headings for each way point since no flight planning is there for the king Air. The Baron is a nice aircraft to fly with pretty good views from the play

I try to confine my flights to the Pacific NW from Alaska to Mexico and from the Pacific to the Mississippi. I like to hop to those small airports just to see what they look like and enjoy the challenge of landing on them. I usually start my trips from Orcas Island, KORC, and go East from there.


You flew directly over my house. That’s awesome :smiley:

I am in my own sort of beta phase at the moment waiting for some of the more … intrusive bugs to be fixed and taking the opportunity to re-programming elements of my ‘cockpit’.
So for now I am just making local test flights out of EGCC [Manchester, England] usually up to the lakes and back.
I am in no hurry here. Not with a projected product lifespan of some 10 years.
But eventually I shall ‘break out’ for my first circumnavigation [on this particular platform] and see the world.
And what a world Asobo/MS have given us! Lovely.
