I've been very busy, took a look at the posts in this forum and noticed the Alaskan pack has been released.
It didn't seem like a quantum leap forward, so I was wondering how it compares to FSX default scenery, and does Orbx have Alaskan scenery? Peter has mentioned famous sceneries for FS9 from Holger and Alaskan Cinematic, I wonder if Peter or someone could post screenies for those also? Could people post screenies from these five sources for comparison?
Some airports in Alaska have very challenging aircraft performance requirements during meteorological IFR conditions, and require very aggressive rates of climb in order to clear nearby obstructions in their published meterological conditions IFR departure procedures. If your plane doesn't have the performance capability you might as well wait till the weather clears! Alaska has many challenges and dangers. A well known Cessna 310 charter pilot headed out into the desolate areas of Alaska and was never seen again, never found either. Other parts of Alaska are littered with crashed aircraft. On one episode of "Flying Wild Alaska", the pilot encountered bad weather, meterological instrument conditions, radioed in and asked for an IFR clearance to his destination airport. ATC had him climb, and guided him to the airport, very similar to flight simulator.
I hope my request is not too tall of an order, I'd be curious how they compare.
