Couple days ago I felt like going to try some simulated backcountry flying after watching some fellow RL bush pilots on YouTube. Did some searching then came across this website about mountain flying in NZ.
They offer some mountain flying routes, then I tried to look up on one of their routes to find out more.
The one that I tried was a short scenic flight from Queenstown (NZQN) to Wanaka airport (NZWF), and I gotta tell ya, that was one of the most awesome experience I had in Infinite Flight! Never really expect that IF could deliver that level of VFR excitement 😁😆😇
Started on the grass apron at Queenstown Airport in a beautiful morning!
Taking off from runway 23, then turning eastbound
Majestic view of Lake Dunstan
Mesmerized by the mountain ridge along the way!
Some greeneries in Bendigo
Heading towards the great Lake Hawea
Manouvering around Lake Hawea & Lake Wanaka
Then finally doing the approach to Wanaka Airport
And after some eventful landing attempt, safely parked at the grass apron of Wanaka Airport
Share your thoughts on this trip, and if you have another scenic route for me to try, please let me know!
Thanks for dropping by!
