South American Emergency Flight

Postby Guest » 30 Mar 2008 16:06

My first emergency flight for ASHA and it was one of the most hair raising departures I have made for a while.

While it may look straight forward, the treeline was right on the edge of the runway and I wasn't sure we would make it. I was barely above stall speed for the first 25 seconds of the departure.

Glad to be clear of the trees I lower my climb rate and gain a little speed.

Climbing away from the airfield I turn to intercept my published route.

Image


Climbing up to cruise altitude of 35oooft.

Image


Now in the cruise.

Image


I tune into the ATIS as I am cleared for my descent.

Image


Established on the ILS I lower the gear and add some more flaps.

Image


Now fully configured for landing to runway 23.

Image


Looking forward to stretching my legs once we park, I am sure all the emergency cargo will be put to good use.

This was a great flight, I knew the departure would be tough as the landing I made on my arrival was a nightmare - still, keeps things interesting :lol:

Awesome shots! Which ground textures / landclass / scenery do you use?

Thanks for the positive feedback on my shots David.

I use FS Global - Special Edition, which offers accurate landclass for the entire planet. I then use Ground Environment II PRO for my textures. Finally I use ActiveSky6 for the skies.

I would say that as good as the ground addons are, ActiveSky completes the package as it adds a really nice haze/mist effects as you climb to altitude, instead of having a really harsh horizon in the middle of the screen.

Thanks again for the feedback.
