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.

TBLFSCENERY - ATC VFR MSFS
Philippe
Un must pour un débutant comme moi , j'ai environ 20 heures de vol sur IVAO mais au moins 250 sur sim et j'ai toujours cette hésitation à parler car peur de faire une erreur , mais avec ce programme , je me réjoui de pouvoir voler même en disant des bêtises . J'ai d'abord pris mon envol (si on peut dire ) avec agent Afis Vfr et j'ai completer avec Atc Vfr . Au moins moi qui suis de Belgique , j'adore la France pour le vol (je ne parle pas le flamand ) Bravo à l'équipe et vite les mises à jours pour compléter les autres aéroports . Merci

I am really positively impressed with this developer, not only by the quality of their products, but by the passion the put in each scenery. There are a few developers that keeps updating and improving their airports like Teikof is doing it. Keep the hard work it will be rewarded for sure!

The dynamic light at night is a little bright, but this does not affect that it is definitely a good scenery. If you like flying in Africa, I highly recommend this.

Dont buy this product, it is an absolute nightmare trying to get it into the game have had multiple other people telling me that they are having the same issue. Some people even went to go buy it on the marketplace and the performance sucks.

Outstanding effort! The airport is not architecturally interesting, but it is delightfully executed. The addition of some well-crafted downtown high-rise buildings and the port of Miami make this a must have airport for anyone who enjoys flying in southern Florida.

Fantastic Aircraft! Fant-

SWISSMILSIM - DE HAVILLAND VENOM DH-112 MK4 MSFS
Stefan
Excellent work by Swissmilsim, once again. The flight characteristics are very well implemented and the sound adds a lot to the immerson. The winglex is awesome. The quality of the textures has also greatly improved, which is mostly noticeable in the cockpit. Howeve-
r, the instruments are difficult to read because of the seating position, which is much too far back. If the position is moved forward, the aiming device blocks the view of the instruments. In the real Venom, the cockpit space is extremely constricted. This could have been better implemented. Bu-
t overall, very good work!

Excellent terminals, taxiways and runways detailing. Good frame rates on my machine. But. Let down by no runway and taxiway dynamic lighting making a day time landing and taxing in low cloud, snow and fog near on impossible.

If you are looking for a slow, small and easy to fly aircraft for MSFS....this is one of the best options. Flight dynamics feel very realistic and overall the aircraft is really well done. I am completely satisfied with the product.
AIRWORTHY DESIGNS - TFFJ ST. BARTS MSFS
Lonn
Couple things to know about this mod. One TFFJ doesn't work with SA Mesh. The Asobo or Airworthy Designs version of TFFJ doesn't work. This has nothing to do with this mod. The Asobo TFFJ doesn't work either. Constant texture problems with St Barts. Has to do exclusively with the SA Mesh from Orbx. I wrote a ticket about it with Orbx. Secondly. Its compatibility with the Sea Front Simulations StMartinStBarts mod. Wow we have been loving this Sea Front Mod with the Airworthy Designs TNCM mod for a long time if you are in the know, but it doesn't work with TFFJ well. So a work around is to go into the seafront-sights-
eeing-vessels-a-
nguillamartinba-
rts mod then go to scenery. Then go to seafront-anguil-
lamartinbarts directory and delete the following subdirectory. "stbarts1" This will fix the flattening buildings with both addons installed. It unfortunately removes the big cruise ship and some of the boats on the eastern end of the island which kind of sucks, but it may be a good trade off to all the flattened buildings on the western side if it is enabled. Your choice. I chose no cruise ship. The buildings are pretty annoying. Not sure what stbarts2 covers but so far I left it intact. Hopefully the two addons can talk and coexist without this fix, but for now it's a golden fix if you want to enjoy both add ins. I feel that the fix is a must, since the seafront addin sings with the TNCM addon from Airworthy Designs and i would rather not disable it. Hopefully we can find a sweet spot with their TFFJ addon also. For now, this fix addresses the problem of the flattening buildings without entirely removing the mod. It just strips out a portion of the mod. The cruise ship on the other side :(. Take care everyone. L
