Courchevel

Post by Nigel H-J »

Downloaded the Courchevel Airport and do not have Orbx Scenery and don't even know whether they do one for this area however, with the free airport thought I would give it a try.

Lined up and ready to try the ski jump with the Dornier 228!

I am NOT NOT going to ask what happened to the last screenshot but great screenshots

Would be interesting to see it in winter conditions!

Yes, you are quite right Eric, but my immediate thought was on seeing me heading straight for the wall was as written. Now if I were a man of the cloth then the above would most likely apply!! :lol: :lol:

Hi Aharon, I just hit the wall at the end of the runway, nothing hurt apart from pride! :$ As for Winter conditions I only have one season in X-Plane 11, not aware that even the airport Coucrchevel has its' own seasons embedded somewhere. Sorry I can't help you any further.

Regards
