Scope of this Addon „Swiss Glacier Pilot“

  • 13 glacier landing field in the Swiss Alps
  • Piper Super Cub with 4 typical Swiss paint schemes
  • 7 FSX-Missions in English, German and French
  • Manual in English, German and French

1. Swiss glacier landing fields

NOTE: Requires Switzerland Professional by FlyLogic

The glacier landing fields designed for this addon are also used for real glacier flying in Switzerland. Usually airports in FSX are designed in a flat environment. The glacier landing fields are designed with a slope between 2.5° and 10.5° in direction for landing and takeoff and are a special feature of this addon. Take the chance to experience flying on the photorealistic glacier on the basis of Switzerland Professional X.

The landing fields on the following glaciers are included:

  • Kanderfirn
  • Petersgrat
  • Jungfraujoch
  • Clariden
  • Wildhorn

On each of these glaciers, 2 to 3 landing fields are designed.

Special features of the glacier landing fields

  • Specially designed landing fields with a slope of 2.5° to 10.5°
  • Ski tracks on the landing fields for better visibility
  • Acoustic effects: Combined touch down sound for snow surface and concrete runway
  • Visual effects: Snow cloud during take off and landing and with higher motor rpm
  • Snow surface on the glaciers for realistic behavior of the plane on snow
  • Red marking frame of the landing fields for better visibility to be switched on and off by means of the COM1 frequency
  • Static aircraft and other 3D objects on the landing fields

At this point we thank very much Mr. Hans Fuchs, President of the Union of Swiss Glacier Pilots, for his valuable information and support.

2. Aircraft – Piper Super Cub

Piper Super Cub designed by Simon Smeiman. The four classical Swiss paint schemes were designed by Kurt Stöckli and correspond to reality. Three civil versions HB-PHZ, HB-OBY, HB-PBA and one version of the Swiss Air Force (V-654) as used from 1964 to 1976 are included.

Special features of the Piper Super Cub

For this addon, some of the aerodynamic parameters were slightly adapted in order to reach the glaciers between 8700 feet and 11700 feet.

The following features were added to the piper:

  • Automatic activation of the parking brake when trying to take off on a concrete runway with the skis in lower position.
  • Automatic activation of the parking brake as soon as the skis are retracted (higher position) on the glacier landing fields.

3. FSX-Missions

The glacier flying missions are available in English, German and French. The preferred language version can be selected during installation.

The Missions are grouped into three different types of flights:

  • Flying from an airfield to one of the glaciers:
    • From Reichenbach to the glacier Kanderfirn
    • From Mollis to the glacier Clariden
    • From Sion to the glacier Wildhorn
  • Flying between two glaciers
    • From Petersgrat to the Jungfraujoch
    • From Kanderfirn to Wildhorn
  • Training flights on one glacier
    • Kanderfirn
    • Clariden

Special features of these missions

  • Voice over for each language version in order to guide through the mission
  • Specially designed medals and certificates.

A CONSTABLE - TRAFFIC3D SOUNDS FOR ULTIMATE TRAFFIC LIVE
Abdul Aslam
Simply awesome!!!! I was initially hesitating on purchasing the the latest version as I had already owned the previous version and noticed that the sound quality in v4 was not so great. As this version was designed to be used with Ultimate Traffic Live, it made all the difference in the world. You can try surround sound with varies AI traffic. Als-
o, no fiddling around with the setting as the installer does everything for you. Highly recommend this products and very grateful to ALAN CONSTABLE!!!
AEROSOFT - CRJ 700/900 X FSX P3D
Robert Thomason
I like Aerosoft and I buy a lot of what they distribute but this CRJ is a lemon! It has a lot of annoying bugs such as the FMS not following the flight path, ctd's, slow refreshing gauges. It also has lackluster VC Graphics and a weak soundset IMO. Maybe it'll get better with time and patches but the support staff seems to be very defensive on their forums locking threads blaming users etc. very uncharacteristi-
c from what I've seen in the previously. I gave it a star because it does hand fly nice and one more for potential. Running version V1005 on P3dV4.

A CONSTABLE - TRAFFIC3D SOUNDS FOR ULTIMATE TRAFFIC LIVE
JAY FLEISHER
I've used Traffic3D Sounds for FSX and P3dv1-3, and was a P3dv4 Traffic3D Sounds Ultimate Traffic Live beta tester. Great addon--works as advertised and the AI sounds are way, way better than default.
DRZEWIECKI DESIGN - NY AIRPORTS V2 X : KEWR, KLDJ, KCDW FSX P3D
Zsolt Monostori
Okay, so I think it's a pity that none so far has decided to come up with a nice and detailed representation of Newark's Liberty Airport. So I got very excited when I first heard that the talented Drzewiecki-team has been working on a brand new version of their New York Airport product. The fact that it includes Newark alone guaranteed I will go for it early on. The detail they packed in this is simply tremendous. You've got two separate products, each featuring three New York airports. This one represents the mighty Newark as a main airport as well as two smaller general aviation or business airfields, Linden and Essex County. The other one embraces two big guys, JFK and La Guardia as well as the busy business beast Teterboro. L-
et's see. The two smaller airports, although small in size, are equally stuffed full of fine details. We've got all kinds of nice clutters scattered across the airports, moving vehicles and people so the whole place comes to life. The ground textures are sharp and pleasant to look at although I still do miss volumetric grass from DD products. But it's nothing more than my personal preference. At least an option to have grass would be great. As said, the superb ground textures make up for it easily so worry you not. The buildings are nicely textured too and the modelling is top notch as is always the case with Drzewiecki's masterpieces and it's certainly no exception. The night lighting is amazing, makes the pilot feel become part of the scene... if they could somehow add the smell of avgas or jet fuel for even more immersion though... On a serious note, these two small airports are very addictive. Linden has grew on me so much I couldn't stop flying patterns in my Cessna 182 - make sure you enjoy the wonderful surroundings if you do so! So far only the busy airports of metropolitan NY came into mind and it's fantastic to now have the opportunity to fly out of and into smaller airfields of the city of the Big Apple. And then we've got Newark. Very, very happy with it. As mentioned, I was eagerly waiting for KEWR to finally appear and I am absolutely satisfied with how DD delivered it. Fine, crisp textures, excellent lighting, SODE jetways and all the little bits and bobs without FPS loss. NY is a demanding area by itself yet I easily maintained over 30 FPS in two of the most complex airliners with my sliders mostly to the far right. Occasionally I experienced some dip into the mid twenties but it's not an issue and appeared to have been momentary only. The whole thing is properly optimized and balanced. On the other hand, many things can be fine tuned via the installer such as texture resolution or the presence of static aircraft, just to name a few, should you wish to increase performance this way. If you wanted a Newark scenery, you can throw this in your cart right now and you'll love it for it is a great value for money. Three airports in one, all three looking gorgeous and performing extremely well, this product is another hit. Kudos for the Drzewiecki-fact-
ory for revisiting their old NY Airports and applying the DD magic, making it one of the best buys for me this year. Strong-
ly recommended!
FSXCENERY - JACKSON–MEDGAR WILEY EVERS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT FSX P3D
Diane Orton
It's alright, works fine in P3D v4... had to fix the gates, because all the parking spots by the terminal were set as regular GA... no gates were set at all for the airport... but I edited the AFCAD file and fixed the issue. I believe a couple gates are missing, too. According the the terminal map, there should be nine gates from what I can tell, and there were only seven around the terminal building... I was able to fit an eighth gate into the terminal area, but there's really no room for the last one unless the ground markings are changed. All and all, it's fine for the price. WIll likely purchase KMOB, KOKC, and KTUL in the near future...
IRIS PRO TRAINING SERIES - GROB G115E / TUTOR T.1 P3D (DOWNLOAD)
Richard Wraith
WOW doesn't even describe it. Our cadets and staff have been flying the milvis tutor for several years now, and REAL tutors, and I recently upgraded our Sim to P3D v2.5, then installed this aircraft, with NO other addons or tweaks, and it has blown them all away. It looks AMAZING, is exceptionally detailed, realistic and the flight model of it is amazing. Fin-
ally somebody has done the tutor, properly! We-
ll done chaps, jolly good show from all of us over here in Blighty training RAF cadets :-)
AEROSOFT - CRJ 700/900 X FSX P3D
Shanard Letang
It was definitely worth the wait. Good sounds, visuals, and textures. I know there are some issues at the present moment but the AS CRJ works great. There are a few differences from JR CRJ 200, ei, the NW switch that actually moves in the AS CRJ 700/900, startup and shutdown procedures are different to each aircraft. One thing I noticed is the fuel in the CRJ manager does not produce the accurate amount of fuel at times so some additional fuel is require via taxi or holding fuel section. This aircraft is very immersive and fun to fly.
TABURET - FSX P3D NIGHT 3D EUROPE BASE PACK P3D
Johannes Butz
*I own ORBX Global, Vector & OpenLC products that I wanted to enhance with this product* It Illuminates some of the main roads in Europe but not all of them. If you have ORBX Products you'll probably be disappointed. -
I like to fly performance hungry airplanes, wich is why I opted for the "low impact" version of Taburet's night lighting. I guess if you're flying GA or very basic aircraft you'd be better off with buying specific regions of Taburet's Night 3D and if you're like me and you fly FSL A320's or 777/747s AND you don't want to compromise performance, then you're better off with just the ORBX lighting and one click more LOD in my opinion.
