FlightNight September 16 - Exploring Barcelona and Beyond

10 Sep 2017 17:38 - 10 Sep 2017 19:02 #35537 by Vodoun da Vinci


This chopper adventure will involve exploring detailed airports and other scenery in the vicinity of Barcelona, Spain. Bring your choice of Chopper from the FGUK Hangar - other helicopters will,certainly be entertained if we can get a link to the aircraft in time to get it downloaded and installed well before flight time.

We'll meet at LEBL/Barcelona at 8 PM London Time. Be prepared to cruise at roughly 110 - 120 KIAS at altitudes up to 2000'. We'll be flying up the coast to LEGE (Girona) and then turning back on ourselves and going to LELL (Sabadell) where we will break for fuel and refreshment. From there we'll fly past some significant terrain and dawdle for a bit near some large hills....we aren't in a hurry on this trip and we'll spend some time checking out cool stuff in detail on our trip to LEIG (Iguadala) which we will over fly but stop at a medieval fort on our way back to Barcelona. Extra points and Kudos for landing on one of the flat topped towers of the Fort.

Hope to see everyone there! I'll be flying a Hughes 500 or EC145.

Found another really cool place we'll visit and maybe attempt to land if we have time.



Should be a good time!

The OSM Spain can be downloaded here:-

drive.google.com/file/d/0B5TeZxXfefn3Q2F...TlE/view?usp=sharing

Unzip it and point FG at it as a custom Scenery folder

It just puts the OSM Roads and stuff on top of the existing FG scenery.

Awww, I'm away on holiday Saturday morning and won't be able to take part - though I might be able to watch the stream if the planned 12v upgrade to our hire boat works out as we plan. This would have been an awesome one to film.

Speaking of which, Stuart, how did you do that inset view? Was it OBS using a separate instance, or the much-awaited FG ability to render several views at once?
