    About The Lake District

    Surely there is no other place in England like The Lake District. Here in such a small compact area lies the jewel of the English Crown. So many mountains and fells, a lifetime's work to map them. Alfred Wainwright did his utmost by writing seven volumes of guide books. I in my own little way am going to try and show you that same beauty from a slightly different perspective. A number of years ago I started to show you the beauty with my Flying Bike Tour in FS2004 but graphics have improved since then and will no doubt continue doing so in the future.

    Many guide books have been written about the lakes even long before Wainwright first visiting The Lake District. The first I think was written in the mid 1700's. William Wordsworth wrote quite a few guide books himself but then complained there were too many visitors! The best known today are the seven volumes of Wainwright's Guide Books. Today thanks to computers I myself have the capability to give people around the world some idea of what The Lake District has to offer and together we can learn as much as we can.

    It is very difficult to compartmentalise The Lake District so we will occasionally re-cross footpaths from different directions but that will just add to our knowledge as we learn together. I will also tell you a little bit about the history of the areas that we will be flying over so you will know even more.

    Scenery

    To make these flights possible I have created three ortho files @ 18 magnification which is the best (although i can supply 19X which is even better (USB only) which are free to download here on FlightSim.Com (or if you prefer they can be supplied (for a deposit + postage) on a USB stick as two of the files are quite large). You can of course use these free ortho files on their own for you to enjoy the scenery.

    The free background scenery is available from the FlightSim.Com file library either as a regular browser download or via torrents. These are the three scenery files:

    The Tour

    The tour package includes additional scenery of airfields, a full set of flight plans and an extensive guidebook in the form of a PDF file.

    The 62 page guidebook is the heart of the tour, offering maps, photos, instructions and a detailed week-long itinerary that will guide your flights to the best parts of the scenery.
