Hello IFC! Today I decided to take the the TBM out for a spin and fly a fun and scenic route to Banff. Banff is a beautiful town located in the middle of the Canadian Rockies and is home to one of the most beautiful lakes I’ve ever seen, Lake Louise . I discovered Banff a few months ago, and ever since, I have wanted to go so badly. But until then, I can fly to, and enjoy the beautiful scenery of Banff in IF. Hope y’all enjoy these pictures!
Aircraft: Daher TBM-930 (Red Stripe Livery)
Flight time: 23 minutes
Clear skies as we depart Calgary!
Cruisin at FL150 over Rocky View County

Smooth touchdown here in Banff
A bonus shot of the beautiful Rockies at 60,000ft
And the beautiful blue Lake Louise!
Feel free to request some routes that you guys would like me to fly!
All of those are awesome but my favorite are the first and third ones. How were you able to get that moon shot!!!
This man is now my favorite. I have never seen Banff on here.
BTW, you should’ve took off from CYBW, that is where most GA aircraft are.
Nice photos love the moon shot. Wish I could get moon shots but my moons are never that big
You have to all the way back; extremely distant from your object. When you zoom towards your objects, it’s like the moon is it’s actual size.
Nice pics! Banff is wonderful, I’ve been there myself! Here are my pictures from Lake Louise and Lake Moraine this past summer:
Lake Louise (I later got to go canoeing on it, was very cool)
Lake Moraine (sorry about the quality my computer has decided to be annoying)
Thank you! Basically how I do it is, I use free cam, fly far away from my plane, and line up my plane with the moon, then I tap my screen to zoom in and get the angle I want, and then screenshot it🙂
Oh ok I didn’t know that lol. Yea I’m pretty surprised Banff hasn’t been shown on here before. Thanks!
No way! You’re so lucky. I have always wanted to canoe on Lake Louise. What an absolutely beautiful place for sure. Thank you!
TL;DR - epic
It’s beautiful ain’t it😍
Canada is just awesome isnt is
Random question, is the runway pretty long at Banff? I want to know if I could maybe fly a jet in 🤔
Nah it’s pretty short, I would advise against landing a jet😂
Amazing might have to take a flight their some day
Yea it is definitely worth it, thanks :)
