Scope of „Swiss Glacier Pilot Volume 2“

  • 11 Glacier landing fields in the Swiss Alps
  • Fieseler Fi 156 Storch in two models and 4 Swiss repaints
  • Mission „Rescue on the Gauligletscher“ and 4 other missions with glacier flights
  • Manual in German, English and French
     

1. Swiss glacier landing fields
To be considered: 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 3.0° and 8.4° 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:

  • Allalin
  • Gauligletscher
  • Glärnischfirn
  • Grand Gombin
  • Griesgletscher
  • Les Diablerets
  • Monte Rosa
  • Pigne d’Arolla
  • Plaine Morte
  • Plateau de Trient

Special features of the glacier landing fields:

  • Specially designed landing fields with a slope of 3.0° to 8.4°
  • 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 takeoff 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

2. Airplane – Fieseler Fi 156 Storch

The Fieseler Storch was designed by Simon Smeiman. The version with wheels combined with skis was specially designed for Swiss Glacier Pilot Volume 2. The four classical Swiss Air Force paint schemes were designed by Kurt Stöckli.

Special features of the Fieseler Storch:

For this addon, some of the aerodynamic parameters were slightly adapted in order to reach the altitude for the glaciers up to 13'000 feet.

The following features were added to the Fieseler Storch:

  • Combination of wheels and skis. The skis can be lowered for landing on glaciers and raised for landings on hard surface.
  • Two models with or without shooter on the back seat.
  • Four Swiss Air Force paint schemes A-96, A-97, A-98 und A-99.
  • Animations of all control surfaces.
  • Detailed and very realistic virtual cockpit.
  • Very realistic engine sound.
  • Automatic activation of the parking brake when trying to take off on a concrete runway with the skis in lower position.
  • When placing the aircraft by means of the FSX menu "go to airport...", the mixture is set automatically to the actual altitude.

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:

Rescue on the Gauligletscher

November 19, 1946, After WWII in Europe, a C-53 Dakota with US-Generals with their wives and a little girl on board took off at Vienna heading toward Pisa. A heavy thunderstorm drifted the airplane over the Swiss Alps. Like a miracle the pilot could fly around the dangerous peaks of the alps until it crashed on the Gauligletscher. Then the spectacular rescue operations in the Swiss Alps began.

The Mission „Rescue on the Gauligletscher“ takes you from the airport Meiringen to the location where you can see the crashed C-53 Dakota. After that you proceed to the landing field on the Gauligletscher and then back to Meiringen. 

From an airport to a glacier landing field

  • From Wangen-Lachen to the Glaernischfirn
  • From Sion to the Plateau du Trient

Flying between three glaciers

  • From the glacier of Allalin via the glacier of Monte-Rosa-Gletscher to the glacier of Theodul
  • From Plaine-Morte via the glacier on the Wildhorn to the glacier on Les Diablerets
    (this mission only if Volume 1 is installed)

Special features of these missions

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

LIVTOAIR - XTREMEAIR SBACH 342 (XA42) MSFS
Lukas
Rather well done. I was skeptical at first but it flies nice, it's modeled nice, textures are good and on top of that it has a cool and unique custom efb smart phone with apps (weather, gps, notepad)Even comes with a well modeled fuel truck and transport car for those who like extra immersion. All in all you can tell the dev put passion into this XA42.

First I’d like to confirm that this is fully compatible with FSX Steam Ed. You only need to direct the install to you FSX Steam root folder which is very easy to do. There aren’t a lot of Russian military fighters to choose from or compare this to but this is definitely the best you can buy. The modeling of this SU27 is really quite good. Excellent exterior with reflections and shine as well as detailed aircraft modeling. All switches and panels in the cockpit are 3D. No sections that are just 2d photos pasted into position (like AFS Designs SU planes) while all switches, dials and knobs are 3d, only a handfuls are actually clickable. Only the most important can be clicked and the rest are not simulated at all. At least the VC is accurate and looks great! The Mach indicator in the Airspeed dial doesn’t seem to work. For example when I am at fl360 going 1200 kmh the Mach ready should read approximately (based on conversion charts and speed converter applications taking pressure, temp etc in to consideration) Mach 1.6 but is actually blank at the needle point. The AoA limiter allows for the most stable flight behaviors and forgives excessive stick input. Turn it off and the plane becomes vastly more maneuverable but also less forgiving of extreme movements, but is the only way to perform a “cobra”. With the limiter off, it becomes far more easy to accidentally enter high speed aerodynamic stalls and uncontrolled rolls and spins. When that happens you can hit the “auto recover” button and the plane will usually recover itself even if the pilot blacks out. The overall flight model feels very different from other jet (like F15, F14 etc) fighters of the era making for a nice change of pace if you’re used to American types. The audio is very cool! The engines sound as powerful as they should. Very nice afterburner effects and unique audio set adds to the overall immersion. Turn it up! Overall this is the best SU27 I can find. While little of the systems are simulated (typical of most planes of this type anyway) you get the most important and can enjoy the flight and extreme maneuvering capabilities just fine. It’s priced well all things considered. Excellent frame rates! Based on use with FSX Steam Edition Win 10 3.3ghz i7 16GB ram Intel UHD630 integrated GPU

Best aircraft I have flown in-game. I highly recommend this F35 to anyone who wants great immersion.

nothing to say top scenes with beautiful graphics, well optimized. I recommended it to you

even after this recent update, my plane crashed and it said; what a nice touch down....

I’d been using a freeware MYNN until this. Significant upgrade. Well worth the money.. Great rendition, smooth framerates. Very pleased. The only critique is the former runway that is now isolated taxiway is lit up like a runway.

Great addon with an awesome developer. Only downside is that SimMarket only offers downloads through their app.

Thank you Dino for this excellent ADDON, a great achievement to transcribe the VSTOL flight under MSFS. The modeling of both the aircraft and its cockpit are superb. I only have one wish: an update so that your aircraft carriers are mobile under MSFS! Can't wait for you to make us an E2C hawkeye for MSFS too!

Cannot recommend this in its current state, especially given the price. There are serious texture bleeding issues, the taxiways completely lack night lighting, and there are typos on some of the ground markings. The modelling and apron work has a lot of potential, and I would give this a higher rating if these issues were to be fixed.
