4. DC-3 Hops Tour (Level 1-Easy-6A) (DC3/C47)

Status: Active
Description: DC-3 hops around Alaska. This tour was originally created on Alaska Adventures back in 2011, updated 2015 and again in 2017 for all to enjoy flying a historical piston aircraft in the wilds and ruggedness of Alaskan scenery. DC-3 was a great aircraft in the 1960's and 70's. The truth is that a "real" working DC-3 is a "man's" airplane — incredibly grungy inside and out; dripping black stuff; reeking of Mil-5606 hydraulic fluid, engine oil and 100LL (Avgas -aviation gasoline). DC-3s are unwieldy on the ground and demand considerable muscle taxiing in a wind. Stable in smooth air, they rarely feature autopilots, so you don't lounge there, occasionally caressing the trim, lightly pressing a button or adjusting the bug on a dial. Tour Flight Leg Rating Conditions: Level 1/Easy. “6A0”: 6=Max landing rate is -600fpm. A-Autopilot and GPS use permitted. (There are no Stop-overs on any of these legs). Tour Download for this trip is available in the Tour downloads section. This tour download contains the all the tour details, flight plans, sky vector map links as well as the award for completion. There are eight legs to this tour utilizing DC-3/C-47 aircraft. (Closes Jan 15, 2018)

39. From the PNW into the Land of Misty's (Level 1-Easy-6A)

Status: Active
Description: This is the introductory tour that will lead us to the "Land of Misty” for following explorations but we have to get there first. Our new aircrafts have just arrived at S45 Oregon and we have to fly our brand new Maule Orion M-7 260C aircrafts from Oregon to the land of Misty. This is ORBX, Tongass and into RTMM scenery areas. Our RTMM warm up tour. There two sets of flight plans as well as two types of SkyVector mapping links: direct and not so direct!. Not so direct routes are way pointed which follows a more scenic route via natural landmarks such as gorges, lakes, rivers and mountain ranges. For anyone wanting to have the flight plans (.pln) and/or the SkyVector mapping links (.pdf file) they have been made available on the site under Downloads/FSX Tours Revisited in one .rar file but when extracted will create the necessary documents and folders. It has been another interesting time preparing this tour and hope all enjoy flying the “From the PNW to the Land of Misty” Adventure. Aircraft Recommended: Maule Orion M-7 260C.

93. AKA Ketchikan Sea Base Ops - (Level 3-Hard-4N1)

Status: Active
Description: This is Ketchikan Center Sea Base Ops. Ketchikan Center is the center of many of our activities and in the heart of our prime scenery locations: Tongass Fjords, ORBX Alaska Regions and the largest scenery RTMM with RTMM Misty’s Place just around the corner from Ketchikan. We will explore many different areas from great fishing spots, outlying/remote cabins, seaplane bases as well as rugged natural scenery: Harbors, rivers, gorges, mountain ranges and more all in a radius area of @ 100 nm from Ketchikan SPB. On our trip, it is our task to transport fishermen to the outlying areas for some prime Halibut, Salmon and bottom fishing – accessible by water hence this is strictly a sea plan base operation. Note: each flight leg has one stop-over location which is also a water mooring. Aircraft: Float plane or amphibian is required and since we are site seeing this scenic area along the way as we transport the fishermen to various locations: “low & slow” is the only way to go! The aircraft must be a single engine non-turbo prop fixed wing: IE: DHC2 Beaver Float/Amph*, DHC3 Otter, Cessna C185, or equivalent. (*MilViz DHC2 Beaver Float or DHC2 Straight Float STOL is recommended with *Reiner’s new AKA Livery*). For helicopter pilots: If you prefer a rotorcraft, go for it. Bush chopper must be equipped with floats (non-military) only. Tour Flight Leg Rating Conditions: Level 3/Hard difficulty-“4N1”: 4=Max landing rate is -400fpm. (Harder to do on water) N=No Autopilot or GPS use permitted. 1-# of Stop-overs in the flight legs.

Its length, including its many windings, is from 2,000 to 2,500 miles; and the area it drains in the neighborhood of 440,000 square miles. Next to the basin of the Mackenzie, the region drained by Alaska's great river is the least known of any of the larger river valleys of North America. The Yukon River is a majestic beauty. “Yukon” means "great river" in Gwich'in.
